    Default Camping Trip

    Taking with me atomizers of:

    Bois du Portugal
    Cypres Musc
    Baie de Genievre
    Selection Verte
    Terre d' Hermes
    Ava Luxe Firewood
    Ava Luxe Patchouli Leaves

    I was thinking of checking out that Demeter Burning Leaves...but is it wearable?

    What other fragrances work great outside in a wilderness environment?
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Sounds nice, but y'all must be a lot more into elegant camping than Yours Truly.
    (My campmates are lucky if we all bathe in the lake once a day and daub on some patchouli oil to scare away the mosquitoes and cover up the B.O.)

    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    Oh, don't get me wrong...This is not a luxury excursion by any means! There is a cabin, but last year we didn't have any running water (and therefore no working toilet!) Showering took place by dumping a cold gallon of water from the party store on your head! You can hear animals running around in the walls and ceiling! Lol

    I just can't be without my scents! (and what better occasion to wear some of them?!)

    This is our (my friends and I) annual canoe trip. What a blast! We are wearing Viking helmets, painting our bodies with red tribal symbols, and carrying costume-weapons like giant swords and flails (maces). (and obviously getting really trashed) We've never gotten quite this crazy before, but we make a point to raise the bar every year!:bounce:

    I wore a decant of Burning Leaves (its all gone) and here's the thing: it reminded me of burning leaves in a campfire. So realistic. Very wearable and one of a few scents that I most always layer with other scents that I want to 'smoke'. However, the last place I would wear it is camping. If I was camping I'd wanna burn some leaves and smell the real thing. No?

    I like your proposed list - specially Cypress Musc (which is my SOTD - first time I gave this a full wearing). Smells so much like torn tree limbs.

    I would also recommend Vettiveru by Comme des Garcons. Think of it as low fat vetiver. Very refreshing and cologne strength, so you can't really overapply. You could easily smell fresh and clean with a dip in a pond and liberal splashes of Vettiveru. It also has a very tenacious citrus note, in the middle notes.
    Currently wearing: Bang by Marc Jacobs

    Don't you want suggestions as to which frags double as a bug spray? My vote is Kenzo L'Eau, hehehhe

    One of my few camping luxuries (and only camping scent) is Dr. Bronner's "magic" peppermint liquid soap.

    You are too funny! But I, too, would not even think of camping without a bottle of Opium homme eau de parfum. Hey, if the bear or cougar is going to eat me then I'm going to smell good going down!
