    Cool What would Pete Doherty wear?

    I was wondering that question cause I think my aunt is a low-cost clone :-p

    Slim fit trousers, black jackets, all star converse and all this rock-punk retro stuff...

    Any suggestion??

    Something from CdG's Guerilla line, I'm thinking.

    Like the exclusive cologne range? I'm thinking Eau Noire.

    Secretions Magnifiques
    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    Hedi Slimane when he was the designer for Dior, was really close with Pete Doherty, and still is. He has a book of photography and even a Spring Collection dedicated or inspired by him. So something from Dior under Hedi's creative direction.

    But to tell you the truth, the guy is a mess, and probably would care less about wearing a scent...he's also a heavy drinker, smoker and drug user and reeks of bad smells which would overcome any perfume type odor. I don't think he wears anything scent-wise.

    Have you smelled him?

    I mean, it's certainly possible, but I want to know if you know this first hand or are just assuming it.

    I would submit that if he can bother to put on Dior Homme clothing, he could also bother to spray a little cologne... if it suited him. Which it may not. I honestly don't know.

    No, I've never smelt him, but you hear stories of him smearing his own blood on his apartment walls, and he looks like a mess. I think it's safe to assume.

    He also doesn't really wear Dior Homme apparel either. Occasionally he has for print ads to support Hedi, but he likes wearing vintage and thrift shop finds.

    He'd probably drink it instead of wearing it.

    WTF? What am I doing in zatarain's signature I bet that is why I find the whole "manly scents" idea a bit ridiculous. Anyway, every time I stay with my parents in Mexico, at least one of my fragrances disappears.

    And who is Pete Doherty?
    ... Ok, his music does not suck. CK Be, XS Black or something very minimalist... One of the CDG odeurs.

    He would wear nothing. Sorry folks, fragrances aren't very rock and roll.

    Rock and roll doesn't have anything to do with sensory indulgence? I must disagree.

    This is, in my opinion, a tipical stereotype.

    All my life I've heard Mick Jagger wears Cuir de Russie and Keith Richards wears Habit Rouge, for example, and we're talking about 60s old rock men.

    Why don't Pete Doherty? It's a supposition, but why not?

    Watching ballet is sensory indulgence as well, but I wouldn't call it very rock and roll. Rock isn't merely about stimulating the senses, it is also about rebeling against the bourgeois and things associate with that class. Cologne is more Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, Lifehouse and Goo Goo Dolls than AC/DC or Pete Doherty.

    Ok

    And I have to agree with zatarain... Ramnstein and NIN should wear something like Fahrenheit on steroids... System of a down Have to wear a Montale Aoud. AC/DC should wear something with a lot of cedar and vetiver... may absinthe.

    Santana for man needs to be less "rochas man" and add more cinamon and spices.

    Something with a cocaine top note, red wine, crack smoke, and barf.

    Seriously though, I dig Pete's music, but I do picture him smelling of the above, with perhaps a light whiff of something like Dior Homme, Prada Amber, or CdG 2.

    I've met Carl, I did a photoshoot with the Dirty Pretty Things the year before last, I didn't notice him smelling of anything but nicotine...

    I think the perfects fragrance for him would be a combination of the smell of an old leather jacket, wet cigarrettes and dried alcohol with a hint of cocaine..oh he probably wears that already
