    Default Rich smelling cologne?

    This may be a silly question...but are there any colognes out there that you would say smell "wealthy?" One, that when you smell it makes you think of lots of money. Not expensive, but makes you smell expensive.

    I think that Millesome Imperial is rich smelling cologne. Some thing about Geir also gives me that impression. I don't know why but they are what my view of a Wall Street broker would wear.

    Royal English Leather by Creed.

    It is a decadent, aristocratic, creamy leather with a hint of mandarin orange. Turns paupers into princes!

    That is funny. Heritage is the first one that popped into my head. Great minds think alike, huh, Mike?

    Wow - these all sound intimidating. Another that I found to be that way was Declaration. A kind of understated elegance that made me feel unworthy to put it on in the store - particularly in my T-shirt and leather jacket.

    I liked Bond No. 9 Wall Street as a rich scent, but it struck me more as a young associate than a cigar-smoking partner.

    To me Dia give me this sensation.

    I'd say Czech & Speake's No. 88 as well. It's very classy and aristocratic with a hint of decadence. I think this wonderful rose fragrance takes a bit of confidence to wear, though - it's not "in your face" or anything, but you have to be comfortable with its style and image. It's not something I would use with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans.

    Amouage Jubilation XXV has a smell that suggests wealth, power and class. Nasomatto's Duro also has a wealthy feel to it.

    It very much depends: there's Donald Trump rich (tacky), Bill Gates rich (dorky understatement), Prince Michael of Kent rich (old school style). I'd prefer the latter: Vintage Tabarome, or any well made, restrained wood-spice-tobacco combination.

    If you are talking about a traditional Gentleman's cologne in then you can actually get expensive smelling without shelling out big bucks.

    You see, a lot of the traditional colognes were based on lavender or citrusy/ spice notes.

    This afternoon I am going to be buying a bottle of Mr Taylor, which is the traditional Cologne from Taylor Of Old Bond Street. It has many of the best bits of Chanel Pour Monsieur, but somehow manages to smell more sophisticated, more expensive and more importantly lasts longer on the skin.

    I've been wearing Taylor of Old Bond Street's Luxury Sandalwood Cologne of late and that smells as elegant and expensive as you like.

    I also have a bottle of Edition Imperiale by Couvoisier, which trust me, smells and is expensive. But the Taylor's stuff is a fifth of the price and smells just as expensive.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    I'm not sure if I could justify spending $850 for a flacon... no matter how good it smells.

    I'm sure a "rich" person could justify it
