    Erolfa, Nautica Voyage, and Bulgari Aqua. Lacoste pour Homme has a rum note in it if you want to take that route.
    - Arrrrrrrr$
    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    I'm still trying to get my hands on a sample of this juice...

    I have sampled MPG Eau des Iles which is said to be very similar - and is great stuff.

    How are these smoky woody coffee-laden scents pirate-like ? I also found Eau Des Iles a tough scent to wear. Its more of a campfire scent.

    Ah, I thought you meant a scent that another house/designer pirated!

    Shark repellant!

    Idole by Lubin might be the one you are looking for. Woody and spicy scent with undertones of very appropriate notes of rum and leather. It also has cumin in it, which sometimes has this body odour vibe to it, not so much in this scent, unfortunately.

    Ah yes... but even coffee can create many images...
    Some think of coffee as the smell of a local starbucks.
    You may think of smoky coffee as the smell of a campfire.
    Others may think of coffee in the context of times gone by when it was still something very exotic, brought home by merchants and explorers on the backs of camels or in sailing ships (which then extends to pirates).

    I think that is the imagery the writer was refering to.
    This is consistent with the imagery that L'Artisan are trying to create on their website: "A surprising blend that stimulates the spices discovered by the courageous navigators in the wedge of caravels…"

    ... and, correct me if I'm wrong (my French sucks), but doesn't Eau des Iles mean something like "island water" - refering to an exotic island?

    I don't usually like to make assumptions about why people think what they do (especially with something as subjective as fragrance imagery), but as zztop asked a very fair question, I felt that an assumption was required.

    I hope I did the writer of the blog justice...

    Lacoste PH. Plenty of Jamaican rum in the base.

    L'Eau de Navigateur, aarrrrrrrrr. Alright, I know that is too easy, like saying Dzing! smells like a circus...

    Erolfa (mentioned earlier) is an interesting choice because of the brininess, but I think it's far too classy as a whole to be for a pirate. I mean, a pirate certainly lives ON the sea, but he doesn't bathe enough, doesn't wash his clothes, eats random and exotic things, kills things, and just generally "swashbuckles." Erolfa strikes me more as something Admiral Nelson might wear while commanding the British Fleet.

    So, I'm recommending Diptyque L'autre instead. There's enough dirt, spice, kick, hints of BO, and sheer dandiness in there for any Cap'n Jack.

    Moschino Pour Homme always associated with pirates for me!
    The bottle itself also has some posh piratic feel.

    I have a friend who is into the pirate theme (needs professional help). No idea where he got it, but for him it is St. John's Bay Rum by West Indies Bay Co. I think Havana or any rum noted scent evokes the image.

    I'm surprised that this line from Yosh hasn't been mentioned. I have tried them all and they really are swashbuckling scents.

    Um.... Heeley's Spirit of the Tiger - notes to follow tonight when I can reapply it and think, but once the alcohol blows off, boy do you have a spicy (clove, cinnamon, sandalwood), piercing (menthol) scent that's barely mitigated by white chocolate and white musk. It's very pretty, and has good sillage and longevity (I can smell it on my wrist 7 hours after I put it on this morning, and I've spent most of the day pruning a vineyard in 30 mph winds!)

    Thanks,

    Zachary

    Yo, ho, ho!

    How about: leather - Tabac Blond or Cuir Mauresque,

    or

    something "manly man", like Parfum d'Habit

    or

    MKK, for that "unwashed" smell?
