Thread: 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.

I second Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
Royal English Leather by Creed.
It is a decadent, aristocratic, creamy leather with a hint of mandarin orange. Turns paupers into princes!
Any Creed will do that...

PVC and Leather. A Chain and a feather
Creed Vintage Tabarome
Tiffany for Men

That's easy: Heritage by Guerlain. The name says it all.

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 feel like I just took a bath in a mountain of jewel.
E.g like scrooge mcduck in his money bin.
The top 3 IMO are
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.

For some reason, I get that feeling when I wear Tumulte.

Some of the old school vetiver scents smell like old money... Some other ones to consider.
Marc Jacobs for Men
Czech & Speake - No. 88 & Cuba
Amouage Jubilation XXV has a smell that suggests wealth, power and class. Nasomatto's Duro also has a wealthy feel to it.
i'm surprised no one has mentioned EAU D'HERMES.
it's filthy stinkin rich...pure opulence with dirtiness.
Clive Christian Number 1
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

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.

Clive Christian is certainly pricey.
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...
Caron 3rd man..
Aqua Di Parma
All the above can be bought fairly cheap..
If you want to go Niche I would try...
Creed Bois Du Portugal
