    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.

    The most dazzling fragrances I have come across are also, regrettably, the most expensive. I'm a big junkie of Montale Aouds, not everybody is. I love Damascus, Royal, Gold, Black, White, and others. The most grandiose fragrance I think I have in my collection is Amouage Gold, which is pretty amazing, but must be used lightly; Silver and Ubar are also very impressive. I've also recently gotten into the pure perfume oils - attars. These have a rich, complex smell that lasts all day long with a single drop, and something that just can't be reproduced even with an EdP.

    I don't like Jubilation XXV and Amouage Gold, but yes, I can imagine someone who owns the world's oil supply would wear something like that. Too rich for me (no pun).

    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.

    Vintage Tabarome

    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.

    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.
    Trumpers Cologne.

    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    As this thread was started in 2008 some of the earlier suggestions may be a little out of date?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.

    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. ;-)
