    Default Your Bad Mood Days Fragrances Choices

    I am in a crappy mood. Five hours waiting at the airport for a one-hour flight back to NYC from a business trip I sorely did not want to be involved in at all! I am going in sometime tomorrow, not sure when, but I know I will be in a bad mood, and I want a fragrance that subtley expresses how I feel about the place. I am thinking a nice dose of Aramis as an FU. What else would say what I am thinking about my dear, darling co-workers and "that place"?

    Don't be "that cologne guy" -- it'll just give you a headache.

    The SECRET is to dump a whole bottle of Tabu on the carpet when no one's looking.

    Something confrontational, like Route du Vetiver, Black Aoud, Black Tourmaline, or Yatagan.

    I'm with Vibert. I think some funky spike up the nose like Parfum d'Habit, Yatagan, Aramis (you got it!), or maybe Xeryus (I don't exactly know why that one though, just seems right).

    I remember a thread long long ago in which a member said he'd heard from a woman who was a boss that she had an easier time firing people when she wore one of the Chanels, one that resembled Grey Flannel, because of an icy quality it gave off.

    There are times I think Royal English Leather would be a good FU too, but since I started to like the stuff I now think it is too beautiful for the put off. Sables might be a good hard fortress wall around you, and Eau du Fier too, after said fortress came under attack and was burned.

    I've taken a long time creating this post because I've thought through all my collection and want to think of more scents to suggest. Hope someone has a good idea and you get it in time for application in the morning.

    Don't feel better soon,

    I thought of another. Helumt Lang edp. A snarling dirty musk. Doesn't smell really pretty, but it's mean. Not a musk that seems sexual, fetishistic, or nudge-nudge I'm' glad to say, but a dry, dirty, snarly, FU of a musk.

    Pepper yourself HEAVILY with JOOP or Kouros, and make the punters regret the day you walked through the door...

    Layer some A*men with some Messe de Minuit.. Maybe add a spray or two of CK Eternity. That'll do the trick.

    Just layer yourself with at least three powerhouse scents (obviously ones that don't compliment each other) and take the pleasure in watching everyone hurl...

    Thanks guys, some good ideas here. I was thinking after posting last night that Blenheim from Penhaligon would be good too. But I don't own it, and don't like it ,so I won't buy it just for today. Think I will go with Aramis, which I usually wear with a two discreet sprays, just add two more, and out the door!

    PS Smelled Kouros again at the Duty Free in Toronto last evening cooling my heels for hours, and boy did it smell like airport lav urinals. Sometimes I think I like/love it and "woof!" sometime NOT.

    Ha...I laughed at "woof".

    I wear Zino on such occasions. It makes me feel confident, ensnares the unsuspecting, and punishes the wicked.

    Kouros! The all-purpose fragrance!

    You might also trying layering Kouros with Diptyque l'Autre. That would surely take the starch out of their shorts.

    Or just go to the drugstore and buy a bottle of Navy for Men. It absolutely reeks (on me at least). Brown sugar, cat pee and BO.

    Haha, funny that you all mention Kouros! In fact, it *is* the fragrance I wear when I'm in a bad mood. I wear it because I think it will make people leave me alone, but for some reason, I tend to get lots of little nods from people and whatnot... odd, but true.

    Which reminds me, I should wear this more often...

    What do you think the nods mean when you wear Kouros?

    I for one get tons of compliments with Kouros -- always have.

    Rule number one with Kouros, though: DO NOT OVER-APPLY.
    It's in the same family as Polo and (eek!) A*men in that a little too much can make all the difference in the world.
    (Four squirts gets me through a whole day just fine, as opposed to seven or eight with Tabac, and at least as many with Eau Sauvage.)

    I think this one calls for a rather strong dose of Vulva.

    Cool Re: Your Bad Mood Days Fragrances Choices

    Hm . . .

    I can see the Aramis. Of course if you don't mind getting fired, two powehouse Oakmoss scents that make Aramis look like a child's play by comparison are the exquisitely obnoxious Carlo Corinto (not to be confused with Carlo Corito Vetiver) and the clove-bomb Jacomo de Jacomo---both guaranteed to kill a bloodhound at ten paces, and both with amazing longevity . . .

    Route du Vetiver is just too cruel

    Pity you don't like the Blenheim Bouquet but if you want to "get confrontational", there's always Vintage Tabarome.
