Thread: Rich smelling cologne?
Rose de Nuit - old money. L'Arte di Gucci - new money. Cabaret - gold digger.
I have now given you my financial perception of rose chypres.

I'm not all that excited by Jubilation (I do own a bottle). I do also like Dia quite a bit. Gold may or may not be your style but it IS impressive... whatever else you say about it, one thing is definitely: "wow". I have Arcus, that's a citrus scent and not as grandiose. Amouage produces some very impressive stuff, but it's a bit hit-or-miss.
Maybe Chanel pour Monsieur (NOT Concentree)
Many older fragrances, the older the better I think (found the bottle one day in a chippendale cabinet at the estate). For women, maybe Caleche or Norell.

try declaration essence
I like how the lancome miracle scent is subtlely sweet yet at the same time smells classy.
I love how Knize Ten smells
I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

As for me, Bulgari pour home really smells like that.
god bless oakmoss
When you say "rich smelling" I assume you mean something worn by an elegant, tasteful and confident man in the prime of his life. With that in mind, I'd suggest
Guerlain: Vetiver, Heritage, Habit Rouge, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Jicky, Derby.
Chanel: Sycomore, Cuir de Russie, Pour Monsieur (not Concentree)
Jo Malone: Nutmeg & Ginger.
Penhaligons: Blenheim Bouquet, English Fern.
Floris: Vetiver, Elite, Santal
Creed: Original Vetiver, Green Irish Tweed, Millesime Imperial, Vintage Taborome.
Dior: Eau Sauvage, Jules.
Green Irish Tweed
gucci by gucci
Seasonal favorites :
Winter : The Dreamer & Burberry London
Spring-Autumn : Bvlgari Pour Homme & Prada Man
Summer : Bvlgari Aqva & Aqua Fahrenheit
All-Rounders : Terre D'Hermes & Bleu de Chanel
For me - Gengis Khan
Old money/Blue blood - Penhaligons
New money - Creed :-p
From what I currently have:
- Michael for Men by Michael Kors
- Terre D'Hermes
From what I've tried:
- Tiffany for Men
- Tom Ford Extreme
Polo Green, Voyage d'Hermes, Eau du Soir, Herrera woman (Carolina Herrera).
When I think of scents I have which are rich smelling I think of these,
Creed - Royal Oud
Kilian's - Straight To Heaven
Tom Ford - Noir De Noir
Creed - Green Irish Tweed
Acqua Di Parma - Colonia Intensa Oud

In my mind the richness of a scent correlates directly to the opulence that I feel it lavishes upon the nostrils of all and sundry along with quality ingredients and suitable projection. With that in mind I present to you:
As this thread was started in 2008 some of the earlier suggestions may be a little out of date?
At the (more or less) affordable side of the spectrum: Esencia Loewe, vintage Ungaro II and III, Armani Eau pour Homme, Gucci Nobile.
Duc De Verins
Gold Leather by Atelier
An updated choice - Cuir Tabac by David Jourquin

I'm selling internationally Opium homme EDP
Check out my selling list:
Jubilation XXV has that vibe, but it is a relatively pricey one so, it's "already expensive" (and expensive smelling). Same goes for Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Own and love them both. TL is one of the few fragrances that gets me compliments from complete strangers just about every time I wear it - there must be something working really well with my skin chemistry to make this one work the way it does - and because of that I will have this one in my rotation for as long as I can get a bottle.
If you want something inexpensive but that smells like a million bucks - try Hermes Equipage. It smells like you were born on a big pile of money and never had to lift your finger in your life to do anything physically strenuous. It's a little stuffy, in a billionaire playboy kind of way, but I think it fits your description to a T. When I spray it on I feel like I'm some aristocratic royalty and should be sipping gin martinis every day for lunch. ;-)
It's strange, but in my opinion, this one smells expensive. I feel like I smell perfumes like it in rich person around me.
Creed Aventus. Can't believe it's not been mentioned.
24 Go dark is very rich in smell.
