    Default Frag to wear to see a WWII-planes airshow?

    Am going out soon to see an airshow - and as it's cloudy and gloomy outside I'm choosing Mitsouko EDP. But am interested what others would choose.

    (And don't say Diesel "Fuel for Men" :P)

    Or Rochas Femme. Wasn't it created during the blitz with minimal access to materials?

    +1 Dior Homme from your collection.

    For some reason I think SMN Nostalgia could work really well on a certain gentleman in this situation...

    Wear something that was around during WWII like Old Spice (1937).

    Something leathery. How about Bandit? And, as a plus, it has a 40's vibe.

    Vintage Tabarome...according to urban myth, both Winston Churchill and Humphrey Bogart wore it.

    Another vote for Old Spice! And a pack of Lucky Strike cigarettes, to boot!

    Good suggestion on Santos de Cartier as an aviation scent, but I don't think many WWII Air Corps men can be associated with this.

    If it were me, I'd go with Vol de Nuit ... sky's the limit, right?

    Agreeing with Vol de Nuit, and adding:
    Bandit
    Caron's Alpona

    since they were both made during WWII!
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    I went. Was fun. An air show hangar is a perfume in itself - rubber, oil, grease, aviation fuel... I went with Dior Homme, but am curious what Vol de Nuit is like...

    Sounds like Fahrenheit layered with Bulgari Black.

    Vol de Nuit also immediately sprang to my mind: an early 20th century scent inspired by Aviation!

    Didn't Commes des Garšons do a fragrance with those notes?

    There is *something* about an operational aircraft in the *smell* of the beast. You can see aircraft "mothballed" in museums, but nothing like the experience of a working plane--with a drip pan under the engine!

    I think of a scent that is something leathery--like the leather coveralls and flightsuits worn by aviators in the early part of the 20th centuries, including the thick sheepskin suits of bombers crews in the days before pressurised aircraft...

    Ah, yes, the smell of AVGAS...

    Aeroplane from Detaille, Paris. A good old fashioned Citrus scent for pilots in leatherjackets.
