    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...

    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.

    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.!

    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!

    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.

    Sadly, my cash on hand has deteriorated since I joined Basenotes.

    For a NOTICE ME fragrance, heavy patchouli scents for me always seem to announce I'm there. Patchouli Leaves by Montale is one of my biggest powerhouse patchouli scents I have. H.O.T. Always has also garnered immediate attention when I walked into a bar no less. (it was only a few sprays and it was my friend that noticed but still ).

    I agree with all the Montale Aoud votes as well. I really try to be conservative with those so I don't gas anyone out.

    I also see Musc Ravageur as a powerhouse but again, that's something I try to be super light with application to keep it in check.

    the surprising thing with Musc Ravageur(which i love) that no matter how much I swim in it, people usually seem to notice it only within first 15-20 minutes of application or when they are right next to me and I mean i bathe in it...i'm notorious for spraying 15-20 MR sprays at a time...clothes included.

    What a bag full of good advice! The first two coming to my mind were Arabie and Knize 10. But you're so right: Peau d'Espagne of course!

    Jardins de Bagatelle and Joy are 'secret loves' of mine. But at least the Jardins cannot be pinned down by most people. I'll try wearing it in public at least once if the summer stays on. <<<<<Surprisingly, this is one of the few gems that shows just blank space in the review section. Hermés Amazone at least has three. I find the latter quite noticeable too, but nobody ever commented it. Maybe I'm still overly self conscious when I wear feminines.

    Ava Luxe - Madame X. I wear that and suddenly the men I know stand a little closer. Whether I want them to or not.

    Serge Lutens - Daim Blond. A friend of ours (one not known for his powers of observation) stopped me and asked what I was wearing. He wanted it both for himself and his fiancee.

    What I meant was, even a hetero male will get the sexy vibe from MKK. Did that sound too much like Borat? The other direction you could go in is clean, clean, clean, Puro Lino for example. That one erases all sexual thoughts. I would never wear an oud fragrance to a business meeting, considering the prejudices towards Arabic people these days.

    I found this too with Molecule 02...

    I had a test spritz on my forearm when I went to collect my kids from swimming. I sat down on the stands about three feet from a young (and very yummy) mummy who immediately asked me what I was wearing. I had tested other scents too, but it was the Molecule she was getting. I couldn't smell it at all at that point, but she could - from three feet away beside an indoor swimming pool where the air was hot, humid and filled with chlorine!

    That experience has left me sorely tempted to buy full bottles of both Molecules... If only I could smell them too...
