    Default What's the most Badass scent?

    Forget refinement or class. Which scents are cool/badass beyond imagination?

    To me, the most badass scent is A*Men. It's said that Mugler visualized a mystical urban hero or something like that when creating A*Men. As result, I find it an utterly hard scent to pull off unless you're truly badass.

    When I read the question, I thought it was asking for a scent which is completely "badass". My answer to this question would probably be something around the lines of British Sterling by Dana. Leather jacket, sunglasses, cigarrettes, leather boots, mustache (maybe).

    Perhaps even Bvlgari Black as a badass with some class.

    However, I must disagree with yourchoice of AMen. When I smell A Men, I smell a sweet, chocolaty scent with marshmellows and kids holding hands dancing in a circle. Not really badass material. Perhaps, it may be "badass" in theory?

    Hmm, I think British Sterlings is too cheap. I was thinking something more lavishly, extravagantly badass.

    Perhaps even Bvlgari Black as a badass with some class.
    Good choice, although I don't really see class in someone who smells like rubber tires.

    Hahaha! When I smell A*Men, I see a guy who gets his way in any situation, he is that good, and the ladies can't help but fall for him.

    Maybe "badass" isn't the right word for what I'm thinking...?

    Yes I can definately see why you would say British Sterling is too cheap smelling. Absolutely. But I think that that plays into the "badass" theme. Something that is crude and cheap.

    And taking that into considering, Bvlgari black which is miles classier as in much less cheap smelling, suits the badass of class. Just my personal opinion.

    Ok and I see what you were trying to ask. "badass" can be interpreted in many many ways. I thought that you were asking about a badass in terms of lots of leather and poorly shaven facial hair. Kinda like the badboys of the 80's. But I can see that what you really meant is a man in a suit, well shaven, who is smooth with the ladies and then ditches them causing them to cry for weeks. Ok then, for this kind of person, I completly understand your reference of A*Men. Although I still think it is too sweet to fill in any form of "badass".

    For your definition, I would probably recommend somethign smooth... like Musc Ravageur or Body Kouros and certainly some citrusy Bvlgari's.

    the truth is that if you take the most badass fragrance in the world and you have, lets say, Bill Gates to wear it, it will turn into Eau du geek. Then take let say Jason Statham and have him wear Acqua di Gio, he will turn it into a badass fragrance.

    Eau De Hermes I think.

    This is sharp cologne with a cumin/animalic undernote. Wear this with a suit and you will always smell like a bad boy underneath.

    Unquestionably, the most badass scent in my book is TRUSSARDI UOMO!

    I agree with Knize Ten and Salvador Dali, I would also add Gucci Envy, Esencia Loewe (smoky, yet richly aromatic powerhouse), Ungaro II (one of the most unusual and magnetic male florals around) and Ungaro III (possibly the most elaborate, yet the most haunting aromtaic scent ever made, once smelled , it's THE unforgettable experience), Fahrenheit by Dior (powerhouse uncensored), Trussardi Uomo and Versace L'Homme (both of them, high quality chypre, long lasting and manly, with touches of tobacco and herbal notes), Santos by Cartier (potent, yet classy sensuality in a bottle), Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme (again, rich on the virile spices), Antaeus by Chanel (fire, air and earth in a bottle, reinvented after the touch of French seduction), the unassuming and apparently safe Rive Gauche (yet with an edgy, almost down and dirty, in a good sense , undertone), Cerutti 1881 Amber (get used to receiving... compliments), Zino Davidoff (hardly another scent that boozy, dark, without being dated), Drakkar Noir (a bit too strong at first, nevertheless a head turner) the surprinsingly affordable Preferred Stock (uncompromising Wall street ethics), Fendi Uomo (leather- clad authority), Versace Black Jeans, some ladies also rate Eau Sauvage on a man, fierce oldtimer Eau Sauvage as one of the most "badass" babe magnets, while other ladies say that if we men wear Obsession by CK and Azzaro PH, it just reeks "alpha-male" to them (for whichever the reasons may be), so the list is nearly unlimited, as all or most of the scents listed above are great warriors, all of them victorious, in the "push it to the limit" style, yet each time in different ways.

    When Kouros is concerned, absolutely sample first. After that, if you hate the scent, you probably will be able to relate to the urinal cakes and fecal matter references. If you love it, you may still relate to those references, but you will wear it like a Bad ass

    I've never understood the urinal cake/semen/fecal comparisons, even in the original formulation. (I bought it as a new release, that should tell you I'm an oldie around here.) Having said that, it's definitely badass and definitely 'sample before buying'. My vote however goes to Kiehl's Musk.
