    Default Gentlemens Club Manager Scent Recomendations

    Hello everybody. Well the title pretty much explains it. I am a Gentlemens Club manager looking for some fragrance recomendations. I am looking for a scent that yells power, powerful, in charge, boss, etc. A scent that has good sillage and will last for hours upon hours. It needs to hold up against smoke, and lots of it in fact. I currently own many scents, but i do not think any of them really say powerful. I guess i am looking for that scent that will hit you hard and not stop until you beg for mercy. Lets see what we can come up with gentlemen, and ladies.

    I might tend to suggest suble power to you--the subtle power of Creed's private collection Tabarome (called "vintage Tabarome" here at Basenotes, as opposed to the different scent which is in the house's Millesime line also called "Tabarome"). It blends well with smoke, lasts a long time, is powerful and subtle too.

    It happens that I think of another Creed product too, come to think of it, and regret I'm suggesting two things from the same manufacturer, but the scent by Creed called Bois du Portugal is similarly long lasting and powerful.

    Beyond that I'd say look into vetiver scents. They say establishment, grace, power, boss, and leader to my nose's mind.

    Musc Ravageur fights through smoke very well......powerful, strong, sexy and individual.....

    Nasomato Duro - spicy young leather with loads of power and incredible lasting ability.....if you can afford it, this is a great choice.

    Duro would be good choice, powerful, masculine and reeks of authority and power. Although Fumidus is strong and powerful it is a very smoky scent which may not work that well in a smoky environment as it could blend in. Of course there is always Kouros or Fahrenheit, both powerhouse scents designed to assert authority. I'd also look into Riverside Drive, its a little more subtle than the previous suggestions but should work well. Another that might work is Yatagan.

    'Vintage' Tabarome was my first thought as well!

    Except for the rare tester, it only comes in 250ml flacons. Scentiments is a respected online dealer that carries 'Vintage' Tabarome at a discounted price.

    THIS IS A JOKE: --> Tom Ford Private Collection, Tuscan Leather because Mr. Everso and a number of other basenoters said it smells like cocaine sprinkled/spilled on a leather jacket. Hear that strippers like that one.

    Now, on a serious note; I think Creed, Bois du Portugal is a wonderful suggestion because it is loud yet commands a quiet respect; due, in part, to its masculine elegance. On the other hand, you have YSL, Kouros which is loud, heavy, long lasting, masculine and definitely animistic. It is a tough call, so try both but I would, if I were you, go with the Creed, BdP. Creed, Bdp was Frank Sinatra's scent.

    To be brief - Yatagan. Has a high concentration of castoreum, an animalic scent which www.profumo.it says projects a "manager zen" of authority and power. Yatagan, like the sword its named after, makes no apologies and takes no prisoners.

    Throwing out a recommendation to try Rochas Lui. To me it has a bit of a Bois du Portugal or even Yatagan vibe but a bit more subdued, subtle, and modern.

    If you're looking for power w/ the girls...I'd suggest buying some sd-39c alcohol, and dissolving some A1 Yola into it, eau de coca concentre if you will. This is instant POWER !!! LOL
    Seriously though...

    Cartier Santos or Creed Vintage Tabarome is probably what you're looking for.

    Vintage Tabarome seems like an excellent choice but I'd like to know more about gcappuzi's age and what he's enjoyed wearing in the past. You've got to enjoy what you wear or it's not going to say power or anything else.

    Default Re: Gentlemens Club Manager Scent Recomendations

    That's true^.
    If you're above 45, Vintage Tabarome is an instant no-brainer.
    I was going to say Bel Ami, but it'll blend with the smoke, not stand thru it.
    Cartier Santos will cut through the smoke too, and is cleaner than Vintage Tabarome, with still an aura of western authority. Aramis is good as well, but very common.

    Bandit is originally for women
    Antaeus is quite difficult to find in the USA
    Jules is sold only in France
    Macassar has been discontnued

    Most of the rest mentioned are niche - difficult to find and expensive. Some Bnoters are Cred fans, however, pricey.

    Oh lord it pains me to dissent here! I might be about the biggest Yatagan hound on this board (or maybe second to AromiErotici). The juice certainly is assertive and masculine.

    BUT: I would never describe it as a sillage monster. BUT BUT: It's still great, strong-smelling manly stuff.

    I knew i forgot some crucial information. Well i am still quite young, i am 24 years old. I enjoy many scents. I generally preffer sweeter scents, but like them all as long as they are good. I enjoy everything from Silver Mountain Water to Black XS to Escada Moon to Angel Men to M7. Usually if it is in my wardrobe i enjoy it. But the whole thing was that i was looking for that power fragrance. That smell that when i walk past a customer, they are saying to themselves theres the boss. Also when i am working i am dressed in slacks, shoes, button up shirt. Out of everything that i currently own i feel that Creed Original Vetiver, and Cartier L'Essence de Declaration are my scents that yell power.

    So i guess lets also have the scent fit my age or me being able to pull it off. My father wears Cartier Santos as someone had suggested, and it does scream power, but it also screams old man, not that that is a bad thing, but it is more suited for an older male like my pop.

    Any fragrance that is to be worn in a "signature scent" sort of way should at least smell good IMHO. A brash fragrance, after the novelty wears off, can only do a disservice to the wearer.
