    Default What would you wear if you were a stripper?

    OK, so last night as I was enjoying a lap dance I noticed the perfume the girl was wearing. Nothing special, just some generic frag. She told me what it was (I told her she smelled nice) but I can't remember the name. Guess I was too wrapped up with her other qualities.......:-)

    Anyway, it made me think about how wearing the "right" frag would make the stripper more seductive, generate more tips, etc. However, you would also need to make sure it would be universally liked and not be overbearing when you worked up a sweat dancing. Longevity would also be important.

    So, if you were a stripper, what would you wear?

    Out of the ones I have I think it would be a light application of D&G Masculine.

    There is a standard fragrance for strippers, although I can't recall the name at the moment. Anyone know?

    True story:

    Enjoying the fine entertainment of male strippers in Montreal about a year ago (I usually don't do that sort of thing...but ever so often it can be goofy, giggling fun) I had the pleasure to enjoy the 'entertainment' of a huge Brazilian 'bodybuilder type' stripper.

    When he leaned in, I got the strong scent of a mens fragrance that I couldn't identify - I thought it was perfect for him: slightly ambery, a little orange blossom (in a Brut kind of way) and not too strong. I asked him what cologne he was wearing and he said he wasn't wearing any cologne at all...I must be smelling his underarm deodorant which was Axe Body Spray, the one named Kilo.

    No lie.

    I laughed to myself and complimented him on his choice of deodorant.

    Mental note to self: Don't be such a fragrance 'snob'...cheap, dimestore fragrances sometimes smell pretty friggin good sometimes.

    Id say something generically fruity/floral would work in the industry. Non-offensive, innocent and puuurrrtty... think 'pink'...

    Perhaps, if I were to suggest one with some Basenotes 'street-cred' that covers these bases, Id go with Guerlain's "Insolence". Meow!

    prob. McQueen's Kingdom, as it already smells a little sexy dirty. Or Sandalo e The by Bois 1920, it definitely is also a little on the post-Orgasm side of things as well.

    This thread reminds me of a favorite John Waters film, Pecker. Those who've seen it will likely understand.

    If I were dancing in a club catering to women, I would wear something that encouraged them to touch. Women have tendency to want to touch the dancers more than men. Light applications of Kama, Rose 31, Rose Poivree, Musc Ravageur, Black Aoud, and M7 would be my choices.

    If I were dancing in a club catering to men, my choices would be more musky and/or classicly masculine. Men have tendency to touch less than women, but they are better tippers. Rose Poivree, Rose 31, Antaeus would top the list.

    No tea bagging though.

    Ah! No trip to Montreal is complete without going to at least one ot the many strip clubs along St. Cats and St. Laurent. Full contact, baby! Yeeeauh!! It is one of the many reasons I love Montreal so much..besides going to clubs Stereo and Aria..

    If I were a stripper, I couldn't see myself wearing anything other than MKK.

    Body Kouros, of course. That's pretty obvious.

    Alternatives: A'men, Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin, Opium, Very Irresistible, L'Instant.

    No one of those frags match my conservative straight personality, no matter how great they can smell. But if I were a stripper - perhaps they could.

    Jesus, how naive am I?!
    In my reponse above I was speaking from the perspective of the female stripper mattybumpkin mentioned.
    SO, if I were a stripper i'd go with a hefty squirt (pardon the innuendo) of Gaultier2.

    At the one strip club I've been to, the girls all smelled like some kind of coconut body oil. Smelled pretty good up close . If I were a stripper (Lord help us all) I'd prolly wear Musc Ravageur.

    It depends. My first thought was Kouros, which is by far the sleaziest scent I own, but now I'm thinking that I might want to play it off a bit differently if I really were a stripper. I'm a pretty hairy, muscular guy, so if I were a stripper I might wear something like Yatagan or, if I were in a real high class joint, maybe even LV Vetiver or Bois du Portugal.

    If I were a stripper the room would be empty, so I don't imagine it would matter. However, if I were advising a stripper I'd suggest Musc Ravageur, Ambre Sultan, or perhaps Nuit Noire.

    I was a reporter early in my career, and one of my "feature" assignments was to interview a number of the male strippers working at the Boston Chippendale's review.

    So there I sat, surrounded by a variety of lovely men... The dental school student who was putting himself through school stripping; the ex-army guy who converted his camoflague uniform into ripaways... All insisting that the worst thing about stripping was shaving/depilatory.

    When I expressed skepticism, five men in tandem rolled up sleeves, unbuttoned shirts, and hiked up sweat pants, putting forth arms, chests and legs across the table.
    "Here," they said. "Feel." I felt. Smooth as silk.

    I smiled.

    "Feels great," I said.

    "And looks great oiled up," they said. "But the depilatory smells God-awful!"

    I had to agree.

    Nobody at the time thought to recommend a fragrance to counteract the depilatory stink.

    Now I think I'd suggest something like Lolita Lempika (for women) or Terre d'Hermes (for men).

    Is there a fragrance called "G-String?" If I were a female stripper, that's what I would wear. If I were going as myself (not advisable at my age, but let's assume I was still young), I'd have to design a scent called "Thong."

    I was in Montreal earlier this year for the Jazz Festival and noticed not much happening along Saint-Denis after 11pm.. I didn't think about it much because I've been to Aria many times and wanted to check out Stereo again. If you ever get to go to Montreal.. go to Stereo!! The sound system ROCKS!!

    (sorry for venturing off topic)

    On women, I would prefer something very gourmand-ish.. like vanilla, chocolate, cotton candy..or jolly rancher grape-y... Instant wood!
    On men, I'd prefer something musky, animalic and not so perfume-y..

    I would have to second Dior Homme. This one just works incredibly well mixed with sweat and low lights. Other than that, Kouros. Maybe Vulva. (just kidding) M7, applied very lightly. No doubt.

    It was a month or two ago, but I remember reading in a thread (I am 99% sure that it was on Basenotes) that honey dust is a popular scent among high-class call girls. I assume its seductiveness would work just as well for strippers.

    Musc Ravageur, Ungaro II or Balenciaga pour Homme if I were making good tips, as all have that distinctly erotic smell that intoxicates me. (The latter two have civet, too, which -- IMHO -- is very primal and sensual.) Pheromonal oil of some type applied in my armpit and crotch area, perhaps, to heighten the bump and grind.

    If tips sucked, though, I'd have to go with Monsieur Musk (applied, of course, beneath my codpiece).
