    I think the list says dear Chuck wears GIT, Floris, and even Cool Water.

    I have heard somewhere that King Juan Carlos of Spain and his son Prince Felipe use Guerlain Vetiver, and that in fact, all the members of the Spanish royal family are very fond of the Guerlain house.

    Nearly anything by Creed, but I also think that most of the ADP products, as well as many of the Guerlain, Serge Lutens, Floris and Penhaligon fragrances are also serious candidates.

    EGLANTINE by Guerlain for the King Joćo Carlos of Spain
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I'm the quintessential republican (with a small "r", mind you) so I really couldn't care less.

    I couldn“t care less either but I“m pretty sure I smell better anyway than many royals :P *


    * Unless some royal has a perfume fetish and is a secret basenoter, then maybe..maybe he/she has a chance. But variety is the spice of life and same goes for perfume for me.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    I understood it was Blenheim Bouquet that Prince Charles wears?
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
