    Default Sleazy scent?

    Note: this is not a "Worst scent" thread or an excuse to bash those fragrances you don't like. You might very much like these, you might not, but I'm looking for a certain vibe.

    Ok, what scents just come off as sleazy? Sexy, dirty, but not in a particularly good way. I'm talking David Johansson or maybe Mickey Rourke (later years). Both are very cool, but...

    For me, the first that comes to mind would have to be Paul Sebastain (PS). This one reminds me of the leather jacket wearing guy who might just have mafia ties, or who might just be in the porno industry (behind the camera). He always smells of booze and cigarettes (but in a good way) and you do like him, but you've always kept a safe distance.

    Any scents come off to you as sleazy?

    Ever since I read Mochi227's review of Comme des Garcons 2 MAN, I have not been able to shake her picture of "a sickly man with a latex fetish sweating it out during a session in the basement." The review cracks me up actually, and I love this fragrance, but it does have a kind of funny perversion about it. Also Kouros, though beautiful, has a certain element of sleaze about it... Like a guy bravoing up to the bar and sliding in next to a woman he's had his sights on all night.

    I agree with the above Kingdom by Alexander McQueen recommendations (my sotd actually). I will add: Cumming by Alan Cumming.

    Sorry for the hijack- what does MKK stand for? I've tried searching, but it's driving me nuts!

    A couple of days ago I just had to sample Tabac (after reading the (mostly positive) reviews here on Basenotes). It smelled really sleazy, just like old winos do.

    Korous. As I've said before, it smells like gettin' nasty in the men's room.

    Brute...makes me think of nasty, dirty old men.

    MKK is definately down and dirty sexy, but not sleezy, IMO. I hunted the mall for Korous today, and I just bought a bottle of Kingdom blind!...LOL! So that's the kind of girl I am...Give me scents that smell like sex: I don't think they're sleezy.

    I imagine that someone sleezy would wear cheap perfume, or too much of a popular or classic perfume.

    My first thought was that someone sleazy would wear something cheap or wear way too much of something bad as well.
    That said, it seems like cumin is something most equate with "dirty".

    I love the sexy/sensual scents as well and think them different from sleazy and dirty smells.

    Red for Men - (Giorgio Beverly Hills) is the sleaziest scent I know. Kouros might smell to some (ok, most) like BO on the top, but it does dry down to something sublime and pure. Red for Men's dirty, sweaty, funk accord just below the initial sickly sweet blast, smells exactly like the kind of cologne a sex maniac would use in place of a bath and a fresh pair of underpants.

    Now, boys, play nice. We don't know for certain if Senator Craig had Kouros on that day or not. (Though I bet the old closet case DID.)
