I want to see Jack Bauer using this as a tactic in 24 now.
But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
Some mods shouls check his location/ISP and alert the authorities of a potential hazardous chemical threat in the area.
Maybe we have the suspect:
Sex Panther by Odeon.
It's got bits of real panther in it, so you know it's good.
Quite pungent - burns the nostrils in a good way.
60% of the time it works every time.

I think 3 sprays of MAZZOLARI -Lui is enough.

The point would mainly be at least try and evoke a reaction out of this older guy I work with to humor myself and some of my coworkers with the absurd reactions he gives to relatively common situations. He also continually brings up past situations that we've done to, so a few good ones will last until he retires (which won't be too much longer). Everyone else is already informed of the idea, and no one is going to get fired due to this. I was the one trying to wear colognes mainly because I have a lot of stuff I've accumulated over the years. Usually doing something rediculous prompts rather humerous reactions from him so we all routinely try and provoke such reactions. He always plays along with the stuff but the commentary and reactions are priceless. So this is purely for a one time humor. I tried doing it with cheaper stuff I already had but didn't have anything grossly oppressive or enough so that he'd notice it. The other problem is he smokes and he doesn't sometimes notice the stuff as easily. I mentioned in the past we had a good running joke going with Stetson. With Stetson he'll probably be like "Is that Stetson?" "Maybe I should get Stetson" "Does Tom Brady still wear that stuff?" "Will girls like me more if I get Stetson?" this will easily give us all a good laugh, so this is all in good fun.
I'd rather have something that is at least wearable in a normal dose, so not to waste too much money. This was actually sparked with Remy Latour's Cigar in a heavy dose got "Something smells kinda musty around here, could it be me?" (I personally don't mind this stuff but wore more than usual the one day). Ungaro I, one of my favorites, he thought smelled like weed which was rather funny but I didn't overapply it was just wearing it as usual but I've rarely worn it to work. I tried British Sterling on its own in a liberal dose, but this guy probably grew up with that stuff. Royal Copenhagen got nothing, probably for the same reason. I've tried some of the more powerful stuff I could think of that I had.
Ideally a reaction like the Sex Panther scene from him would be the ultimate goal.
RUMBA BY BALENCIAGA......spray it 15 times...either you will be arrested for illegal contamination or for turnin tricks....
Alright then, if it's an older guy, dose up heavy on A*MEN.
Careful post #76, people get offended on here when you say "older guy" and I agree with StylinLA's suggestiion.

Not intending to be offensive. As I say he has a good sense of humor when it comes to things and the reactions he gives are great. If he saw that I called him an "older guy" on here he'd have a great bunch of comments for that. In fact I've actually told him that before in person he replied something like "Do you think I'm old?" "Do I look that old?" "Maybe I should dye my hair?" "Do you think I could still be an actor if I dyed my hair?" "I always wanted to be an actor, maybe if I'd have taken acting lessons..." "That girl I met at the nursing home thought I looked good". Usually a pointless comment leads to a string of rather unusual general statements like that. Then as the day goes on he'd occasionally say stuff in passing from it like "maybe if I dyed my hair" and then go look in a mirror. He tends not to forget the stuff either so he'll repeatedly bring it up in later unrelated conversations too even months down the road. So even with this strong cologne thing it won't be a lost investment he'll probably keep bringing up funny comments about it until he reitres so we'll all have a good laugh about it.

Man114, you've got nothing to worry about on this thread and it looks like your fun in making it, or for making it, is for a good time. I hope you tell us the reactions you get from your wise guy who's got such funny comments.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
If you want a reaction spray Chrome on at least 4 times with him nearby. It P R O J E C T S 10 yards when first sprayed. No, I'm not kidding. Ten yards.
well, now that he has explained it I can understand why he wants an atrocious cologne... hope to hear the reactions soon
I keep thinking of Hillaire's description of Secretions Magnifiques: BLOOD AND SEMEN
If you spray this around him, he'll think there's something wrong with his wanker.
MKK may work also.
Give us a report, on what you chose, and how he reacted
A solid Kouros / Opium (femme) Cocktail will do the job!
Or layer something loud with essential oils ( patchouli, insence, geranium...)
I saw A*Men mentioned a lot, but what about B*Men, that stuff projects like a king.. one of the few colognes I can wear and get away with only 2 sprays.
Hey man114, this older guy seems like a cool dude. He doesn't seem to get ruffled easily and takes negative comments in his stride, with a penchant to go off tangent and come up with humorous semi-related remarks. Let us know how he reacted!
Givenchy Pi edp: Head-ache inducing
Kenzo Pour Homme: Smells of rotten beer when over applied.
Polo (original): Brash and very uncouth.
Current Favourites: Touaregh -Il Profumo/ Le Vainqueur- Rue Rance/ Versus Uomo -Versace/ Sculpture -Nikos/ Acier Aluminium - Creed/ Santal Noble - MPG
Unfortunately I don't think I'll see him until early next week because I'm working days and hours I don't normally work because I took a day off each week for the next month due to a variety of events I have to attend. In the mean time I'll try and procure something to wear. I do have Halston but I never really considered it annoying. Polo seems too overly common so that may not work even though I've got some. I wonder if a heavy dose of Axe would possibly work. I'll dig through some samples I have and see if anything mentioned here I have in a sample. I'll also try sampling some of those knock offs I got for $.50 at Big Lots a few weeks ago, but I don't think I bought anything I wouldn't actually be able to get away with wearing.
I reckon you could layer... pick the strongest, BIGGEST sillage scents you have, and layer all of 'em. (you might not be able to stand yourself but for the fun it might be worth it.)
More than one spray of Le male or Desire would make *me* want to knock you out and hide the body...just to get some relief!
Man, what's with all the hate for Lapidus Pour Homme?? Do you guys really think it's that obnoxious? I love the stuff!
I agree Shamu, I don't get it

What ever happened with this? Did you go with Joop! or A*Men?
I, at first, thought he was planning on spraying someone down with something super strong while they were asleep and then waking them up with a loud noise and a jolt for April Fool's. This would have been awesome.
Sell/Trade-- Issey Miyake(Summer '09)~Calvin Klein(One Summer '07 & '09)~Eau De Grey Flannel
Actually, no thread like this can be complete without mentioning Marbert Pure Man. I own this, but even i am afraid of it! I had earlier posted here recommending One Man Show. Next to MPM, OMS will seem like one of the Aqua Allegorias. This is the oft-hidden-away and almost forgotten Frankenstein monster of my collection.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Haven't done anything with this yet, had to work some different shifts as I said because I'm taking a couple of days off this month. I'll let you know what transpires.
AZZARO POUR HOMME trust me the strongest they make.
lots of Bois du Portugal will take out everyone, even though i love it you have to have moderation for this one.
Lol@ all the Joop mentions. Joop is a monster. Bogart Pour Homme is its partner in crime. Funny thing is...I own both. lol I guess this is why I seldomly wear them...
