    Default fragrances popular in germany

    i am planning a trip to germany. we will end up in france, fyi. i don't want to offend anyone i also don't want to be pegged as an american due to what i smell like. i prefer men's fragrances. some fragrances i often use are burberry( the original), cdg kyoto, penhaligans douro, jo malone's amber&lavender, and a&f's fierce.

    what could i bring that i already have, what could i look for to bring.

    thanks,

    lynn

    I hear eau d'Bratwurst by Divine l'Sausage is a big hit over there.
    Seriously, wear whatever tickles your pickle. Id say people will think your American more from your accent than the way you smell.

    Even though scent is subliminal, this is a good reason. Just spritz something Italian.

    Though it know a popular scent in Germany was Sir Irisch Moos. I never have had the chance to sample it.

    Jil Sander for Men is an awesome scent. I'm sure her line is still popular in Hamburg and the rest of Germany.

    If you visit Munich (in Germany). You should go to the Frederic Malle Shop. There are also lot of Creed shops over here...you get everything...also Montale and Serge Lutens and even Bond´s...the New Dior Sport is out right now...also Armani Diamonds for Men...you also get the Calvin Klein Euphoria INTENSE
    I would say there are more parfum shops than in America...Germany is nearly right next to Paris...don´t forget that...The Germans have a good taste.

    It doesn´t matter which country you visit...check your mood, the weather and your clothing (and situations), than you will know which fragrance you wear.

    Naturally, Germans love their successful designers of the presence and past. Aigner, Bogner, Boss, Joop, Lagerfeld, Lang and Sander (whom did I forget?). Not popular but still highly appreciated by connoisseurs is the Knize company (German, but of Austrian origin). The fans of 4711 ( with Tosca and Irisch Moos) and of Farina, etc. are a dying race, and the popularity of Tabac Original in Germany can be perhaps compared to the popularity of Old Spice in the US: everybody knows it, it's still good, but the fragrant world has more to offer for the open minded!

    Other than that: the western perfume market is totally international, governed by some giants which may reside in Paris, Holzminden, Geneva or New York. But that doesn't really matter. These companies recruit their staff from all over. National perfumery is practically non-existent nowadays. Products are strategically planned to cash in from the poor, the rich and the hundreds of millions in between. Local stores are just a mirror of that development. Paris, Brussels, Manchester, or Torino - all offer the same stuff, just like the perfume departments in tax free shops.

    The most rewarding anti - trend experience: when you find the fragrances that companies like Puig, Myrurgia, Farina, Santa Maria Novella, Molineux, etc. produce for the home market mainly. It's a passion when I am vacationing.
