    Cool What do YOU think are the best Boozy scents?

    I'm interested to see what you may think are the best BOOZY (using liquor) scents on the market right now. I'd like to give some real good ones a try.

    Thank you for defining "boozy!" The other day when I saw the "creamy" thread I was reminded that I've seen "boozy" used as a description as well and had no idea what it meant.

    I had someone on the train ask if I'd been drinking at 10am in the morning when I was wearing Paul Smith - London. Its definately a boozy frag Brandy, tonka and Australian sandalwood in the basenotes - definately a cold weather frag.
    Burberry London has a bit of a 'booze' note to it too.
    L'artisan Fou d'Absinthe smells exactly what you'd think it smells like - Alcohol, anise, wormwood and more alcohol

    Escada Homme. I like the use of cognac in this fragrance. Very warm and elegant.

    Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts. The tequila notes lift my spirit in anticipation of Summer, barbeques, beaches, boating...

    Not the usual Boozy type of fragrance, but I find both, egoiste and Magnetism to have a very Amaretto kind of aura.

    Also, as someone else mentioned, Burberry London for Men is most certainly boozy with it's port wine note.

    Aramis JHL has a very nice note of cognac. The cognac is in an accord with a little leather, some fragrant tobacco leaf, and some rose. Very masculine and very nice. I love wearing JHL.

    JHL's a good choice, yes, and one I overlooked earlier. Also, Carlos Santana has, IMHO, a somewhat boozy "thang" going on under (or at least alongside) all its apple and musk.

    Opium pour homme EDT on me smells boozy about halfway down the pyramid. I agree with Escada PH! Can't wear it for it's booziness. Same goes for Kors - just not me at all.

    For me Bombay Sapphire Infusion is the hands-down winner. This one smells almost exactly like Bombay Sapphire Gin, so much so that when I wear it it is just as though I had spritzed from a bottle of that august and revered potion.

    I don't know about this. When I first tried Le Dandy several years ago it had this note, but I have sampled the newer formulation and I don't get that "boozy" element at all anymore. In fact, I think Le Dandy has become strange and unappealing.

    I was reading thru the suggestions and wondering why no one has brought up this scent. Totally agree with this one. I like it, too.

    Oh - I forgot one that hasn't been mentioned (my SOTD from a sample): Fumidus by Profumum. Incredible whiskey/peat notes throughout the top, middle and base notes. I can't wait to own a bottle of this.

    Wow! If this is true, I would certainly hold out until one is sure that you're getting the recent "old" or vintage version. What a shame!

    Cool Re: What do YOU think are the best Boozy scents?

    Since you asked about the BEST I have to decline including Idole de Lubin.
    As beloved as it is by many here in Basenotes, the Rum Absolute freakin' explodes in your face!
    Perhaps if one simply walked through a mist of it?--- Or just thought about it?--Or
    Naw, give it as a gift to anyone who complains about poor sillage.

    I heartily second (or third)
