    Nah!

    Habit Rouge, what else?

    For Swedish Chefs however I can recommend Eau de Stilton.

    Indeed. Can't deny that man still rocks! Good choice of scents and women

    However, Jagger and the word ''always''.....let's say he likes Jicky very much.

    Richards has supposedly worn Habit Rouge since the sixties. Jagger has always worn a lot of Chanel Cuir de Russie. Like many models, his ex-wife (Jerry Hall) wears a lot of Opium. I'm sure they all wear all kinds of stuff.

    He would need something very clean smelling to contradict all the decay that he projects. Perhaps, SL's Gris Clair would tidy him up a bit?

    I don't know about now, but I'd imagine that Keith would do a lot of forgetting to put on scent back in the day.

    I think Muscs Kubla Khan would be just right to cover the conflicts in Keith's persona. Try it Keith!

    Do you reckon his nose still works for smelling?

    Fags and wee, I think - Quorum. Perhaps with a topping-off squirt of Messe de Minuit for a dead-parent-up-the-nose feel.

    *Edit* - it strikes me that "fag" doesn't mean "cigarette" all over the world. No offence intended - I'm definitely talking about tobacco!

    DECAY? In that case, L'Artisan's VOLEUR DE ROSES might be a good choice for him. I'd even go so far as to suggest that he cross "the gender line" and try Jean Patou's JOY (since a lot of people seem to find that it smells like a heap of decaying flowers).

    Anyhoo . . . I too have heard that Mr. Richards wears Guerlain's HABIT ROUGE, but I cannot vouch for that.

    His nose's condition has got to be shot all to hell. according to his bio, since the 70's, contracts are signed stating that pharmaceutical quality lines of coke and heroin were to be at his disposal

    I forget exactly where I read this, but when Shalimar Light first came out, Theodora and Alexandra Richards (Keith's daughters) were featured in Shalimar Lights print advertising. One of the girls said in an interview that Shalimar Light reminded her of her Dad's cologne, Habit Rouge.

    a Guerlain family if not group... Alexandra changed her name legally from Dandelion and was raised by Keith's Mother (Mom just died this month at 91) instead of Anita Pallenberg and himself. Son Marlon toured with mom and dad and never went to school. as an adult he went to art school and is now an accomplished illustrator.

    she told Dad if he ever called her Dandelion again she'd punch him. again in the bio. :::shrugs:::

    Doesn't Keith smoke like a chimney? Seems to me that's all you'd smell, so no reason for fragrance. It would commingle nastily with the cigarette smoke. This might be a new thread (or a recycled one) but wouldn't smoking totally ruin any attempt to use fragrance?

    I can't smell anything when I burn incense. And I can't smell this Kenneth Cole New York ten minute later and there's no Incense burning.

    back to the thread
    Keith lived in the same apartment building on the lower east side as Don Imus street had a fancy shmancy name I don't recall.

    I bet Chandler know's him

    it was a weird time, Zappa named his son or daughter, i forget which, Moon Unit, that was legally changed also
    Dandelion is a great song on the next to last album to feature Brian Jones who started the Stones.

    A splendid suggestion, born on the "Guess the fragrance from the Picture" thread from LIB:

    Stoned from Solange Agazury-Partridge.
    Covers it all, I think.

    Fredricktoo, I think we need a Chef on that other thread

    the other thread got all French speaking and painters/painting I never heard of. But the next one I do will not be in my wardrobe and will be unisex.

    rofl it just occured to me that the only things he did himself were play guitar and drink and drug. So any scent he wore was probably a suprise when he woke up.

    I've gotta email this url to him.

    frank gave all his kids weird names (besdies Moon Unit, Dweezil and Ahmet), and they all kept them.

    moon was his eldest daughter and achieved a hit in the the early 80s with the song Valley Girl.

    back on track, i thought the obvious answer to the OP would be Opium...

    I doubt Opium, though I've read that he partook of some dark Mexican once in the while. He reached a point where concert promoters and corporations sponsering shows called him in to guarantee pharmaceutical quality powders to keep him from the seedier sides of towns and keep arrests to a minimum. Of course in the book I just read you'd be lead to believe that the Stones were his band. The Brian Jones book I've stared say's it was his. The Bill Wyman book states clearly that he had a different teenage girl every single night of every tour. I can only imagine what Jagger thinks but somehow I don't really care. And Watts was the Beau Brummel of the group married still to the woman he took as a twenty year old and supposedly always faithful to her.
    --------------------------------------
    I remember a Money magazine article during the early 80's that featured an article about what shrewd investors Frank Zappa and his wife were. Kids pics around the family hearth. so cute for such a surreal screwball.

    I say Opium only because I don't know of a scent called Heroin
    Maybe YSL can come out with a sequel called Opiate, instead of the next incarnation of Opium Bleu Fraiche Sport or whatever....

    and i LOVE charlie watts. one of the more underrated drummers in rock, and definetely the one with the best expressions.

    Clearly, Keith would wear RAID by proctor and Gamble. If there was a nuclear holocaust the only things that would survive would be a couple cockraoches and Keith Richards. I like Keith Richards, but the man has done so many drugs he is immune to anything!

    Yeah, I know it was lame. What can I say, sometimes I am far too easily amused.
