    I would put on only a hint of Montana Parfum d'Homme. And I mean just a hint on my chest under my clothes near my neck. It would not sillage very much and just be somewhat present in your own personal space rather than agressively reaching out to the seat next to you, but still very slightly noticeable to others as a subtle background scent somewhere in your area.

    Put enough A*Men on and you'll be able to hijack the plane.

    For the love of God, wear an edp! It's a long way to India and there will undoubtedly be many odiferous moments on your way there!

    Going to India???

    Not being funny, but there will be no absence of fragrances on that flight.

    Don't wear anything with cumin, cinnamon or cardamom because you will just be part of the wallpaper of scents.

    Go for something light and clean like GFT by Trumpers, it's so fresh even the fresh wipes they give you after the meal will seem positively dull and dark by comparison.

    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil would be great as well.

    I used to worry about wearing fragrance on planes, until social mores changed and it somehow became acceptable to carry on big, smelly food, like a plate of nachos with chili and onions (I've actually seen this several times in the last year). When that started happening, I realized it's time for fragrance warfare. I always wear something discreet and fairly polite - a small spray of YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme, or maybe Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree - but I've also starting carrying on atomizers for emergency scent combat. Passengers with terrible B.O., Chinese food, deli sandwiches with big onions - I have no qualms about whipping out a nice fragrance for a refresher spray when someone around me starts in with this sh*t.

    Yes, I realize two wrongs don't make a right. But three do. Have two sprays and settle back into the nice book you brought with you. A glass of wine might help, too.

    I was going to say none as that is what I practice on flights, but I do have to agree with the post above. I can't tell you how many flights I have been on lately with a family of four slamming down Big Macs right after takeoff.

    You can say the words, "two wrongs don't make a right," but saying the words is worthless. Satan can quote scripture all day long.

    Social mores have not changed, I don't think; certainly good etiquette hasn't. What has changed is the general level of manners and politeness in our society. But I prefer to be part of the solution and not the problem. I prefer to try to raise the standard rather than drag it down.

    If you will look around on in the fragrance directory here on bn, you will doubtlessly find a scent with something like 200 reviews, 199 of which condemn the perfume in question as one of the most vile scents ever confected... and the other one praising it and lauding it as the poster's all-time-favorite, his "signature scent." And as for reports by the other 199 of city-block long projection, this poster patently denies it and insists that it takes fifteen or twenty sprays for him to even smell it. Guess which of those 200 you will sit next to on your next full-cabin transoceanic flight? You'll spen the entire flight looking longingly at the compartment above your head and scheming about how to cause a sudden drop in cabin pressure.

    I know, I know... you only wear wonderful scents and anyone would be a fool not to want to sit next to. But there are very few fragrances in the directory which have hundreds of reviews without at least one or two that are strongly negative. Don't force the one guy in the world who doesn't like your scent to endure it in a situation which is uncomfortable enough already.

    The polite answer to what fragrance to wear for air travel is to, at most, wear a tiny dose of something very simple, very common, and very discreet.

    Travel like a king - go with Nicolai's Maharadjah. Or better yet, Capucci's Punjab! ;-) j/k

    Seriously though, I would recommend a resinous and calming fragrance - possibily Guerlain's Bois D'Armenie or Scents of Time's Ankh.

    Have fun in India. If you happen to transit via Dubai, then defn try out their Arabian Perfume section in the Duty Free.

    Hasn't Bleu De Chanel been created just for this scenario?

    IIRC the designer (name escapes me) said something about the travelling executive emerging from the Gents mid flight (or something similar).
