    Default Asian Men: Your Favorite Fragrance?

    As an Asian male, I was wondering what is your favorite fragrance or one you use daily. Mine is Fahrenheit, but it doesn't last long. I also like Aramis which has good staying power. I'm looking for something sort of sweet smelling that lasts and maybe your input can direct me. I'm assuming if you're Asian, we may share similar skin types.
    Thanks for your replies in advance.

    I'm a middle eastern. I saw that skin differences well, some of those scents which doesn't last on my skin last on other members here and vice versa. But the taste of people are really really different.
    For example here in Tehran lots of people use and love Aqua D Gio, but I don't. The same is true about hot sellers like Lacoste products, Hugo Boss, cK, Davidoff & etc.
    Anyway my all time favorites (in the category you mentioned) are:
    -Fahrenheit (IT LAST WELL ON MY SKIN!)
    -JOOP! HOMME FAMILY Members not himself! (I mean Joop homme chillout, Mont Balnc Individuel and Cristobal)
    -Le Male by JPG
    -Jaipour Family
    -Opium Family
    Also let me add that, now in fall I use "Rive Gauche Homme", "M7 Fresh" and "Dolce & Gabbana" as my day wear scents. This summer my day wear choices were "Eternity summer 2005", "Very Sexy II".
    Finally I should mention "euphoria men" as the most sensual modern scent I've smelled!

    Hard to answer your question since I have so many scents and wear them in rotation. However, popular scents here include;

    1. Cool Water - still the best seller here, so 1st place of course.
    2. Bvlgari AQVA - 2nd place, goes really well with the weather and the sillage is high and also long lasting.
    3. AdG - 3rd place, less used than Cool Water. And I find expats wearing this more than the locals.
    4. Le Male - 4th place here, very popular but they seem to classify it as a gay scent. No need to mention about its sillage and longevity, but when they sweat, Le Male stinks.
    5. Eternity - has been popular among us, but I rarely smell it, on me it lasts more than 7 hours. Still often talked about on the message board.
    6. Happy - they all agree that it does not last.

    Amongst these, Bvlgari Extreme is often mentioned that it lasts so long and smells like a rich man. I know that these are mass-marketed frags, but they work.
    Current Top 5

    It's pretty rare that I come across someone for whom Fahrenheit doesn't las long on the skin.. it's an awesome scent and it lasts and lasts on me.. i'm Indian.. so technically that makes me an Asian as India is in the Asian subcontinent

    You've asked for a sweet frag and below are my recommendations based on my own experiences :

    Dior Homme - A brilliant sweetly masculine scent, has "wet earthy" soil after a rainshower kinda aura...lasts pretty long on me.
    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme - Another musky sweet scent that's a sillage monster and lasts really well.. *might* smell oldschool .. but that's because it IS oldschool .. but that doesn't take it's appeal away.. I recommend it

    I second the cK Eternity recommended by kiatbkk.. i'm sure there are more but that's all I can remember for now.

    I'll jump in to thank everyone who has responded to my inquiry thus far. You've provided a large assortment of fragrances to try. I'm running low on the Fahrenheit and Aramis and thought it would be a good time to try something else. About myself: I'm Chinese American (ABC) who only speaks English and in my mid-50's, but young at heart. I concur with those regarding Fahrenheit not lasting on me--maybe about 5 hours, 6 max. I spray about 6 half pumps around my neck. Maybe I'm doing something wrong yet I don't want to be overbearing when I arrive at work.

    Anyway, thanks again. I look forward to receiving more replies.

    Whaaat? 6 sprays on the neck? Did you push the wrong button? I am afraid to put more than 3 sprays of Fahrenheit, since it produces monster sillage. There is an American older man near my house who leaves the trail of this scent for at least, 15 meters behind him.

    With Aramis or Paco Rabanne, no, but I haven't applied them to my chest, only my neck. I'll try Paco Rabanne on my chest since I'm out of Aramis. Then again, these two may have a completely different chemical make up from Fahrenheit.

    I read somewhere that African-American women love Farenheit (was it tvlampboy?), so if that's your target audience, you're right on the money. [Mine is Fahrenheit, but it doesn't last long.]

    And I'm an Asian male in college, and I personally like Bond No.9 Bleecker Street the best, and I wear that the most often. Or soy sauce, which has extremely good sillage, longevity, and staining power, like SL Sarrasins. I do like Serge Lutens a lot, and I'll use my own personal version of Muscs Kublai Khan if I decide to stay in my room and play Starcraft for 8 days straight.

    Default Re: Asian Men: Your Favorite Fragrance?

    3 sprays on your neck? I think your ability to perceive farenheit is not there due to nose fatigue. The question here is: Does skin pigment have an affect on fragrance? Is there something in your DNA that causes the juice to mutate into an alter perception? My answer would be no but perhaps the culture of your ethnic background might bear some influence on fragrance choices? Considering you seem Americanized, I would be comfortable ruling this possibilty out, however, unless you are steeped in asian traditions. Perhaps you could be more specific as to why a particular skin type would mutate a fragrance. I am curious to know.

    Wish Asian men were more succesful with the taller ladies, a good cologne should help and not hinder it.

    I think it's better to avoid stuff like YSL Opium or M7, because imho those smell like an Asian medicine cabinet. If - for example - a western person would wear those fragrances, it would smell exotic on him. But if an Asian would wear it, it would smell like he's having a cold and put on some medicine on his chest. My uncle is into Chinese (herbal) medicine and acupuncture, and his storage rooms do smell like that. Kinda.

    Fortunately, we're not the same on this earth, and that's what's making it such a great place. Especially Basenotes, which is one of the most friendly and helpful forums I know, with everyone being able to discuss everything openly.

    MEGA BUMP!

    i'm an ABC as well and from some research i've been doing on google.. i think that as asians (well, lighter skinned) our skin types play a major factor in how well our scents project..

    i've been using sillage monsters like Le Male and A*men and can barely smell them after an hour. I asked a friend if i was wearing any cologne and she looks super confused at me.. the only time I can get any sillage or longevity is when i spray like CRAZY.

    I sprayed Black XS and 1 million both 7 times before I asked my friend if she could smell me and she had to get within 3 inches of me and then said yeah i kinda smell something.. so I think it is really our genetic problem

    i tried the whole unscented lotion or frag/lotion/frag method and that kinda helps.. but not really.

    Guys, I can't help but think we're all being kind of silly here. Does color actually affect the scent, or does it have more to do with texture, dryness, etc.? I totally realize I might be using flawed logic, but that's like saying a scent will smell different if I spray it on black construction paper vs. white construction paper. In all seriousness and with zero sass, if someone wants to educate me I'm more than happy to learn.

    I don't think this is racist at all, if you read through it.
    The OP was Asian, and the responses were either suggesting frags or discussing if race or genetics has some kind of effect in the way frags are perceived or absorbed. I'm from Manila Philippines, and was also wondering if there were some frags that work better with Asians in the tropics as compared to say, people of Arabic descent in the Middle East (who have great access to ouds and attars).
    Anyway, topsellers here are always in the fresh-aquatic vein, like Acqua di Gio, Hugo Hugo Boss...a lot of people wear Cool Water and CKOne or its copies. Versace Eau de Fraiche has been around for a while but it's a forum fave in the Phils. There's a good number also stuck in the Fahrenheit-Drakkar Noir-Eternity realm too. A*Men does not have good distribution in the Phils (and it's so freakin' hot and humid here) so I guess this is at least one market that's not A*Men crazy.

    Why, oh why, don't you just spray your fragrances on your shirt fabric (not your skin) and call it a day? The spraying regime you've described above is a huge waste of very nice juice!

    This thread is funny but I'll play. In public, I respect people's space so I tend to wear scents with less projection and sillage. At home, anything goes and orientals are not among my most favorite fragrances.

    The title of this OP can be misleading because in the UK and Europe, Asian is used for people from the Indian subcontinent, while Oriental is used for East Asians (read: chinese).

    I'm half-Korean and Ramon Monegal lasted 12 hours on my skin. Last strong, even after putting it on in the early afternoon and though falling asleep and waking up in the morning!

    I would venture to say that Asian men buy what is marketed to them and available. I know of one elderly Japanese woman whose father was fond of Coty fragrances back in the 1930s.
