    Default what would nick charles played by william powell in the thin man series wear?

    i looked at perfume shrine list but didn't find him there. maybe he didn't wear anything or was overlooked. could be something vintage or modern as long as it would be appropriate for his character. maybe something boozy/ cocktaily since he drank copious amounts of alcohol throughout the films. very excited to hear your recs and thanks in advance!

    Love the Thin Man flicks. Nick would wear Eau de Cartier because it smells like a gin martini.

    Actually I see him in something debonaire, but manly--Habit Rouge, Heritage, Tiffany.

    Nora--Bandit, Cabochard, or Cuir de Russie

    Perhaps The Third Man. Classy, debonair, not stuffy.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Splits: O'driu, La Via del Profumo/AbdesSalaam Attar, Nasomatto, Chanel Les Exclusifs, Profumi del Forte, Mona di Orio, Kurkdjian, Slumberhouse.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.
    For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov

    Good choice! And great Nabokov quotation! Adding Lagerfeld Classic and Michael Kors for Men, both classy, but a little rough and tumble (and boozy).
