    Cool What would Serge Gainsbourg wear today?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serge_Gainsbourg

    I'm a big fan of Gainsourg, but I never thought something like that, it's funny...

    What do you think?

    I agree that if this subversive, drunken, genius were alive today he would possibly choose a Etat Libre d'Orange creation, but I would have to say that Jasmin et Cigarette might be even more fitting than S/M.

    Rive Gauche! Read my review on it if you doubt me!
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    Apparently VC&A pour homme was his signature scent, so it could be the same today.

    Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin did an advertising jingle for Caron's Pour Un Homme. It was downloadable from the Caron site for awhile.

    Strictly hypothetically speaking, I could also imagine him wearing, additionally to the scents mentioned before, Givenchy Gentleman- there is elegance, maturity, confidence, strength in this scent, as there is a slightly disquieting and at the same time mesmerizing undertone of creativity, raunchiness and counterculture

    Why would he change his scent if he has worn it for x amount of years?

    Or Black by Pascal Morabito!

    Too clichéd and predictable, I'm afraid but I'm not surprised it's one of the first suggestions. Serge may have been trashy but he was also an intellectual with considerable class. I'd nominate a Frederick Malle or even Puredistance's M.

    When Bond No. 9 releases "Pan American Buidling", it will be both his scent and their ad campaign.
