    Default The most exotic WEARABLE

    Ok guys here is the question.
    What is the most exotic fragrance that you have worn?
    There are a number of juices that are very exotic but unwearable, very loud and offensive.
    One that comes to mind right now is Lonestar Memories which is exotic, weir but IMHO simply unwearable.

    I think L Anarchiste is strange and exotic yet wearable. Acier Aluminium was very strange to my nose and exotic yet, also, wearable.
    Basala I loved but I could not pulled it off and gave it away now I want it back with desperation but I cant find it.

    What would be your exotic gem that you wear without any restriction or fear?
    The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

    Probably Steam Aoud by Montale. What an interesting fragrance. It's like nothing I've ever smelled before. And it's the only one I've ever gotten complimented on at work.

    CdG Luxe Patchouli or Serge Lutens Arabie. Some would disagree on the wearability of the latter

    I agree that Lonestar Memories is definitely not wearable! I struggle to see the art in something that smells like a steak...

    From my collection I'd say Ambre Sultan, Chergui, Blue Amber, Musc Ravageur, & Nasomatto Duro. Even Paestum Rose is pretty "out there" b/c it is a rose frag. The above would be exotic for any guy that only knows mainstream( AdG, Gaultier, and Boss) but still perfectly wearable.

    Try Idole de Lubin. Exotic rum and spices, yet wearable. Good stuff.

    Although I once considered Acier Aluminium to smell like my grandmother's shag carpet, I recently acquired a bottle, and after wearing it, was blown away at how well it "performed" on my skin! I still have no idea what the hell is inside this bottle, but it seems a lot more beautiful, creamy, floral, and actually wearable now.

    Cuiron was another that I had considered to be one of the weirdest things I'd ever smelled. But when worn, it actually "made sense".

    And it's really nice to see Montale's Steam Aoud mentioned! This one reminds me of something, circa 1900...maybe the giant steam engines that you can walk in at the Henry Ford Museum? I have no idea. But whatever it is, really just...IS what it IS! (does that make the slightest bit of sense?) Maybe I'll give this one further consideration. I feel like I'm not done with Montale just yet...
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    It's really hard for me to answer this, as I wear some unusual ones that others might class as unwearable - Tubereuse Criminelle, for example.

    In general...

    CdG Original
    Iris Silver Mist
    Aoud Cuir D'Arabie
    Fumidus
    C&S Cuba

    ...and I'm sure there are more! My tastes lean towards what's unusual.

    I wear L'Anarchiste, but fail to find it anything other than a fun citrus fragrance. The anarchy is lost on me.

    I certainly think Arabie is quite wearable. Why else would i have a bottle?

    Add:
    Amber Sultan
    Black Aoud
    Tabu
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    I agree with Steam Aoud being mentioned. It reminds me of a sauna.

    I would say Sables pushes the envelope too.

    But these are things I have enjoyed in samples. In my collection, I would say Creed's Cypres-Musc.
