Drakkar Noir - A real Sleaze Bag
Thread: Sleazy scent?
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.
Top 6: Amerigo Vespucci, by Kilian A Taste of Heaven, Serge Lutens Borneo 1834, Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta, Creed Bois du Portugal, Barney's New York Route du The
Think of Habanita (Molinard). The inherent feminine dimension makes it a bit sleazy.
Trumper's Sandalwood and Gendarme sleazy? I get MKK and Kouros, kinda, but...Gendarme?
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.
CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.

Kingdom....something a sweaty, hairy old man would wear to a "massage parlor".

Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
Agree with many, especially - Cumming and MKK. But, oh yes - Alexander McQueen Kingdom it is . . . Sleeeezee !
Kingdom and Kouros definitely.
I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden.'' --Saint Augustine
“Hastiness and superficiality are the psychic diseases of the twentieth century, and more than anywhere else this disease is reflected in the press.”--Alexander Solzhenitsyn
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)
- 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!
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?

Other members of the loud-and-proud bunch - all of which I like but could potentially be red flags on others' radars:
Jacomo de Jacomo
Kouros (it bears repeating)
Royal Copenhagen Musk
Francesco Smalto PH
Oscar De La Renta Pour Lui
Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum (in fact, most bay rums though I'm still a fan)
Loves of Late: Agua Lavanda, Eau Sauvage, Gendarme, Guerlain Vetiver, Guerlain EdC Imperiale, Ivoire de Balmain, Kenzo PH, Mitsouko, Royall Lyme, Tabac Original
Call me crazy, but I think Zino by Davidoff is both sleazy & gentlemanly at the same time... (If that makes any sense....)
What a fun thread!
Ungaro III has a nice sleaze factor.
Must be the Civet.
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".
Trussardi Uomo conjures up the image of "the man in the leather jacket" described by Nicolas V in the original post.
M7, Rochas Man, or Musc Ravageur all work in the stripclub or whorehouse, holla
