    Default what is your "You Will Notice Me!" niche fragrance?

    based on a previous thread and many others where i come to conclude that the absolute majority of basenoters agree that niche fragrances dont garner attention/compliments from the public anywhere close to your run of the mill designer fragrances....now, that phenomenon is not difficult to explain, however the question I have is....

    What is your Niche Fragrance that you know will get you noticed every time (regardless whether you want it to or not)? and why do you think that is so?


    For me its FM Outrageous!(within an hour of application) or Creed SMW....i think because neither is complex(SMW does have more substance to it) and is nose friendly with sparkling bright aqua/citrus/fruit notes...

    For me it's always been one of Montale's Ouds. Always gets me noticed...

    noticed could be anything....from loved to hated, just noticed by those around you whenever you wear it.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Garofano always seems to get noticed. Creed Royal Delight too but I get the idea that not a lot of ppl like it...

    Orris, by Andy Tauer seems to be a fragrance people always comment on when I wear it.

    I'll share a secret with everyone, MKK is a subliminal "notice me" fragrance. If I want to get some "control" going on in a business meeting, I use this animal reductionist before a business meeting. It turns CEOs into horn dogs. Sort of like the "gay bomb".

    One the people liked and noticed was Creed Green Irish Tweed.

    One that some liked, but all said they could smell, was Piper Nigrum

    THe one I WANT PEOPLE TO NOTICE, and like, is Fumerie Turque or Chergui.

    I am gonna try some Montales though, since Black Oud is getting good buzz

    Several people have complimented Molecule 01. Only women seem to notice it though. Weirdest perfume experience yet...Women smell it and compliment it from several feet away or soon as I enter their personal space, whereas a male co-worker stuck his nose right up to my wrist (a few minutes after spraying and dabbing) and said he could barely smell it.

    thats assuming if the CEOs you're speaking to are gay...

    what fragrance would you wear into a meating with a hetero CEO to have the same "i'm taking control of this meeting" effect?

    in other words, Ruggles was indicating its a great scent.

    For me, it would easily be Montale's BLACK AOUD and Serge Lutens' CUIR MAURESQUE! Those two never fails to get attention.

    I was in an outdoor cafe last week ( in the evening ) and there was a group next to my table. As the group was leaving, the last gentleman turned around and asked me: " Do you mind, but what is it are you wearing"? I wasn't sure if he was referring to me or my friend who was wearing Malle's French Lover. He said, it was me and I answered Montale's Black Aoud. Sometimes, you may not smell the fragrance that you're wearing but it does not mean that other people can't.!

    Tauer's L' Air du Desert Maroccain definitely will garner attention in a good way.

    I get smiles with Sel de Vétiver from The Different Company. But I do feel like it puts a spotlight on me.

    One niche frag that will get WAY too much attention is Catherdral by Neil Morris. Just sampled it. Imagine the Kouros of incense! This stuff is, literally, stronger incense than incense. I know because we tested that fact in our house. A real stick of incense cannot keep up with a shot of this frag. Of course, that was the whole point of this fragrance - a thousand burned censers in a cathedral. But if you wear this one, you will be noticed!

    Domenico Caraceni 1913, by far and for sure. I absolutely love that scent, and I think others do too.

    People will notice every LOUD, UNEXPECTED scent no matter is it designer`s or niche.
    Like, Peau d`Espagne SMN or Montale`s Ouds done with 3-4 sprays will be noticed immediately.
    Or, Fracas Piguet, Joy Jean Patou or Un Jardins de Bagatelle Guerlain will be noticed on every man as something unexpected.
    True vintage discontinued perfumes will take attention too as they does not fit to modern politically correct way of using perfumery. Let`s say Chypre Coty, Cuir\Revolte de Lancome, Macassar Rochas... as there were no niche those times

    The only two Creed fragrances I've worn gave me compliments when I wasn't even trying. OV and GIT. MPG Parfum d'Habit is also an attention grabber. Diptyque L'Ombre Dans L'Eau as well, you stop smelling it strong after a while but people around you notice it and can't help but to love it.

    A fashion designer that works at the same company I do was walking on the stairs after me, and she asked me if I smelled so nice.

    I was wearing Tea for Two, I was surprised she even thought I could smell like that because in general I found people never think its a perfume for some reason.

    Shocking, there is more to perfume than fruity florals.

    Montale Aouds certainly draw attention. Fragrances with spine.

    every fragrance you have mentioned outside of L'artisand ones i have never tried and with the exception of the two of them....never even heard off.....

    that was the egotistical point of this thread....learn about new scents i need to sniff.

    thank you. =)
