    I think a gatherting of basenoters might lead to instant cold fusion or something like that
    I'd wear something by Dukes of Pall Mall, because it's so rare.

    See? This is exactly what I thought. But what if everyone coming to the meet thought the same thing?

    I suppose we could mob a Barney's or a Neiman-Marcus and get all spritzed up there. (I'd love to see a herd of BNers - like 50 or more - descend on NM. Just to see if it would fluster them. Just a little.)

    Interesting discussion topic!!! I would layer 4 different scents and see how ppl react to it, hehe. Let's go with STH by Kilian layered with VE on one side of my body/clothes and MR layered with Nuits de Noho on the other side. I would probobly like one awful mess of conflicting notes but meh, you did say weapon of choice right? I'm going to attack everyone's nostrils!!!

    I believe they'd be a little more than flustered with that scenario.

    At any rate, I'd wear Phileas. Best celery note I ever smelled.

    I'm like this now and I agree. I might wait and see what people brought....because you know people are bringing bottles like show and tell...lol

    I do this now when I know I'm going to sample and don't want to muddy it with something else.

    Well you'd at least be able to see what bad or good scents smell like on different skins....maybe open some eyes on why some are loved by some, hated by others.

    and I am gonna be like

    I guess it does not matter what I wear. I will not impress BNers.

    Well, first of all, it would have to be in a public place during daylight hours with plenty of security around. Being the shy, timid, paranoid guy that I am, I certainly wouldn't trust you guys in the flesh. If your posts and threads are any indication of your true character and moral fiber, forget it.

    What time and where?

    I'll be wearing Kingdom just in case.

    In the next five minutes a white van with a couple of orderlies will be arriving at your home. Do not fight them: they have syringes with will-knock-you-out stuff.
    Now, if you can leave your perfumes within sight we will appreciate it.

    I would hope that the other BNers would wear their absolutely favorite frags so we could take a sniff and see why. I would probably wear Heritage or vintage Guerlain Vetiver edc.

    I'd wear one of my Gabriela Sabatini scents (Wild Wind or Desire) since,
    a. They smell pretty good, and
    b. I don't think anyone else would be wearing either of them.

    I think I'd pick some bold dirty patchouli. Maybe Molinard's.

    I'd want to be the group's reference point so other members would send people they're talking to over to me to get the patchouli touch stone, so to speak.

    Couldn't be better said. Reaction is the ring in my brain whenever I see the word "CologneJunkie" on the forum. CologneJunkieReaction is more like it. There wouldn't be anything else CJ should wear!

    Havana.

    Massive amounts of it spritzed and splashed on my face, neck, chest, hands, elbows, forearms, back, groin, legs, feet, underwear, pants, shirt, jacket and watchband.

    Then, in addition to being the best looking gent in the room I would be the best smelling also

    I think I would be late and then not show up because I wouldn´t know what to spray on and constantly change my mind about what to wear.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
