    Actually we know what cologne he wears as it was mentioned in Diamonds Are Forever. His scent is Euchris by Trumpers.

    Apparently Ian Flemming the writer of the books loved Floris No 89 though I do not know if he ever mentioned it in his books as Bond's scent. Maybe.

    There has been so many actors playing the character from different era's its maybe better to chose a different fragrance for each bond reflecting that actors particular take on the character.

    Green Irish Tweed imo would suit Pierce Brosnan Bond.

    I believe Floris 89 was mentioned in one of the books. Didn't know about the movie reference to Trumpers. Yes, GIT is totally Piece Brosnan.

    But what about Daniel Craig?

    In the books, someone has outfitted a bathroom for his use with Eucris - thinking it will make him feel at home since he is English.
    BUT, it mentions specifically that he doesn't wear oil in his hair, OR fragrance of any kind.
    When that book's (forgot which one) "Bond girl" bemoans the fact that Englishmen don't wear fragrance, he responds curtly "We wash."

    Yep, that's right - no mention in ANY of the books that Bond wears any frag, certainly not Floris 89 - that's just the Fleming link. If memory serves we also have never seen him splash or spray anything on in any of the films.

    Indeed, Ian Flemming's Bond wore Floris 89. Also useful trivia, Bond drank martinis with equal parts gin, vodka and vermouth.

    Yup. If one part of me staying alive in my job depends on me not being detected then I'd try to only wash myself and use non-perfumey product.

    If I were Bond, I imagine that I could be just socializing in some casino in Monte Carlo and then a bunch of guys could open fire with a machine gun and that means I may have to get into action and start being stealthy! Not a good time to have worn a frag, even though I may think that a social visit will not result in shooting.

    Popular culture of course mentions Floris no 89 and Eucris though I have also heard Dunhill for Men (1934) mentioned as well. Purportedly no. 89 has been reformulated and now stinks of musty hairspray in aerosol cans.

    89 has ALWAYS stunk of musty hairspray in aerosol cans. As well as really old and sweet traditional talc that has turned. Dreadful stuff old and new, and if Bond ever wore this (which he didn't), the villain and even the bungling henchmen would've smelt him coming from miles away.

    THANK YOU! Finally someone with a knowledge of Bond inside and out mentions the biggest little secret in Ian Fleming's oeuvre: Bond never liked fragrance, and NEVER WORE IT. Forget the movies, they're great but they're also fancy advertising for a hole slew of trendy products, including toiletries.

    As I mentioned in another thread, however, Bond did enjoy Pinaud, particularly their Elixir a la Quinine shampoo, as was mentioned in the novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

    What would James Bond wear?

    Who knows, and who cares.

    Probably whatever he liked, probably something light, and probably not a Creed, regardless of what the website says.

    It would be surprising if he wore a fragrance of any kind. His job requires stealth, and leaving a scent close by doesn't help to achieve that.

    Perhaps this will help you:

    The Daniel Craig character, although nowhere near approaching the Sean Connery character, would probably reach for the new Sartorial by Penhaligon's.

    Apart from No. 89 and various other great suggestions on this thread, including Knize Ten, I would also associate him with some fragrances along the lines of Penhaligons, something close to e.g. Blenheim Bouquet, albeit with an extra touch of edginess, sensuality and shamelessly yet stylishly, also formally elegant exhibited masculinity

    i would think that bond... james bond would wear something not too loud- you know, to remain hidden, conspicuous. something that stays close to the skin with no sillage- dont want to leave a trail! odd-job would simply follow his nose. a strong cologne would give away his position. BUT... there is the ladies... so something that would aid him in his bedding of strangely named women...id say pour monsieur by givenchy.

    In the continuation novels by John Gardner (although many may not consider them "canon") he wears Guerlain Eau de

    I definitely think Sean Connery is Bois du Portugal, but I think Daniel Craig maybe, too. Great masculine scent, definitely suitable for a more rugged James Bond. Maybe Invasion Barbare would work for their tuxedo'd endeavors.
