    Quorum by Puig.....that cumin note hints at something nasty underneath...a bad boy power scent from the 80's.
    Jovan Sex Appeal....makes me think of guys with mega chest hair, chains, and polyester leisure suits, "wild and crazy guys" out on the town gettin' ready to "DO THE HUSTLE!!!"

    I find Ambre Sultan to ge a sort of sleazy (that's good), sexy, dirty scent. Very hot.

    Think of Habanita (Molinard). The inherent feminine dimension makes it a bit sleazy.

    Creed Cuir De Russie smells like rubber and gasoline at times and Mick Jagger wears it. Creed Cypres Musc smells like a cat pissing on a pine bush and Errol Flynn wore it. I have worn both and can attest to this.

    I agree, I always get a "chlorine" note from it that reminds me of too many encounters with sleazy men. I'll put Davidoff "Cool Water" in the same category. I guess pretty much all the big 80's fougere's are associated with sleazy men IMHO.

    Kingdom and Kouros definitely.

    to state the obvious: i don't believe any scents are inherently sleazy. it is their wearer(s) that give them that quality.

    that said, really loud scents that lack subtlety and 80s powerhouse scents are generally safe candidates since they tend to attract a certain type of wearer. these criteria are amplified for men in the 2000's who insist on wearing 80s scents in overly strong doses.

    so, in that vein, my votes are for:

    - Boss #1 (originally a fine scent, but now indelibly sleazy when worn today)
    - the original paco rabanne (see above)
    - quorum
    - halston catalyst (this one evokes images of guys loafing around in cheap bars and malls in middle america... and the smell, with its sulfurous, chemical assault is naturally offensive to boot)

    i can't bring myself to vote for kouros even though it is loud, from the 80s, and still worn by cheeseball flirtatious paunchy middle-aged men, because it is a personal favorite!

    Amen, Giorgio smells like pure sex. Something about it makes me crazy, almost like in heat. Even as a child, when I smelled it on a man it would make me weak.

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.

    Memories of Aramis always flash me back to my brother bathing in it before he hit the disco to score with the hot babes of the day on the dance floor. I just smelled MKK from a sample---It does wreak of sex! I gotta have it.

    Jade East seems to bring back memories of sleeze from a heavy smoking neighbor at a Christmas party wearing a plaid suite, making loud and tawdry jokes in front of everyone. circa 1970?

    I totally agree. I have a sample of MKK - and on me it smells like a more refined Kiehl's Musk.

    However.

    Musky, Dirty Panties. (Musk & Cumin in there I think)
    Sleaze in a bottle.
    Nothing reticent about THAT one.

    Good point. As clothes often DO make the man/woman (or at least our impression of him/her), so do scents...though that does not rule out the wearer's personality. And so it makes sense that bolder, brasher frags would tend to be worn by - and likely also to attract - people for whom subtlety, restraint, decency and /or taste are not key qualities. I'm painting with a broad brush to some degree, but such has been my experience too.

    Call me crazy, but I think Zino by Davidoff is both sleazy & gentlemanly at the same time... (If that makes any sense....)

    I understand. I think Hugo Boss number One has this same quality.

    What a fun thread!

    Ungaro III has a nice sleaze factor.

    Must be the Civet.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Sleazy?

    La Nuit:Old dried semen saturated sheets in a sleazy motel, where a whore dowsed herself in massive amounts of Avon!

    Kama-X: Such an animal! I love it!

    Secretions Magnifiques: Nasty!!! I'll pass on this one. It's too much saliva.

    Charogne: Stinky sleaze! Maybe it's me, but I never remembered seeing "smegma" as one of the notes.
    Nasty and compelling at the same time, if not a little bit "cheesy".

    Cool spell here, broke out Dior's Jules for the occasion. The perfect scent to wear to dark alleys the world over.
