    Question mettalic notes

    I heard that some fragrances have that metallic aura.
    Which ones will you recommend?

    To me, Chrome has a metallic accord.
    Caron L'Anarchiste too.

    Polo Blue has a metallic thing going.

    Watch for geranium as a note.

    Metallic? L'Anarchiste, definitely. Acier Aluminium, not really.

    I second (or third?) the l'Anarchiste vote--very metallic, makes for an interesting fragrance but not for everybody! Paco Rabanne, who once was a welder, often incorporated a metallic note, especially in his women's scents. Guerlain also has a woman's scent called Metalys (sp?) which was originally called Metallica, until the band sued.

    Definetely Azzaro Chrome!
    Davidoff Echo and Tommy T have a metallic aura too (though Echo takes the sweet side)

    Kerr, you're so right about this. When I was a teenager I had a pet iguana who liked to eat geranium petals. So often times, I'd be sneaking him my mom's geraniums and I loved the smell the petals left on my fingers. Not only was it a "metallic" smell-- but also kind of an "electricity" kind of smell. Like an old electric oscillating fan or an old electric mixer that was getting a little overheated. Awesome abstract smell to come from a flower.

    Chrome

    Surprised Pi has not been mentioned.
    It has a coppery element to it.

    In Nemo's drydown I also get something slightly metallic amongst all the fruit.

    Terre d'Hermes, but I think that had not really been intended: the grapefruit smells like poured into a steel pot. I normally enjoy the smells a ripe grapefruit has. Also I get something metallic from Happy (men), and wearing Noir Epices always reminds me of chrome bumpers, and how I loved to polish them! The Geranium ...thank you MK !

    I find a metallic undertone in Silver Moutain Water. Others have described this note as "ink," "inkjet toner," or "pollution."

    Yardley Gentleman has "copper notes" which I think are there. I am pretty sure they are there. Not sure, though, as I am just now trying to "get back" with this fragrance after almost a year's separation. Something is making me think it is not terrible after all, just mis-applied by me in the days before I knew better.

    Cool Re: mettalic notes

    Acier Aluminium, of course. Hence the name.

    Good thread! A lot of times when we talk about the base of men's scents, we mention wood, animalic notes, resinous notes, patchouli. But metal denotes strength too, and some metals are even found naturally in the human body in trace amounts.

    I, too, like the smell of metal...maybe I'll try Platinum Egoiste again, though the last time I did, I found it kind of cloying and busy...or perhaps I'll sample another one mentioned here.

    Just tried Nu by Yves St. Laurent today - I would call it a 'metallic' incense scent

    Secretions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Orange has a sharp metallic note (even more than L'Anarchiste).
    I personally could never wear this fragrance, but it has its admirers, so if you're into metal, maybe it's worth a try

    I can recall metallic (copper) feeling from Golconda (JAR),
    also surgery steel in Rive Gauche Pour Homme YSL,
    Eau de Paco Rabanne also metallic for me.
