    When I think "body odor" in terms of fragrances, I'm thinking "animalic"--which for me is a positive thing.

    Muscs Koublai Khan, though it's more body smell than BO.

    So are you saying that you started this thread because you want us to recommend scents that smell like deodorant then?

    Well, when you say you want to hear about scents that smell like body odor, how else are we supposed to take it? It seemed pretty straight forward that you were looking for scents that smelled like body odor. So you want scents that smell like you are putting on deodorant? Sorry, I'm not getting it. I'm usually smart, but this isn't clicking with me tonight.

    LOL.. No -- allow me clarify.

    Add to the post by naming colognes that smell like b/o
    Bossa said that I think of as "b/o" he thinks of as "animalic"
    What he thinks of as good, I think of as bad.
    When I think of these colognes that smell like armpits.. I think of deodorant to absorb such a stench.
    Understand?

    Then I agree with the suggestion for Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan, and Eau d'Hermes

    LOL and to think this is why perfumes were invented, to cover this.
    I think the greasy/oily texture of hermes' Equipage matches my skin's olfactory texture after 24 hours showerless, but not the scent exactly.
    The scent itself is really like equipage mixed with a ton of cumin/turmeric and cedar (pencil shavings variety).
    Maybe someone knows a cumin/turmeric/cedar scent?

    Anything with a combo of animalic musk and cumin will give that Body Odor impression to many people, and when done well smells quite warm, sexy, and not repulsive at all (to me at least). Eau d'Hermes is definitely a great example (although very low in longevity).

    But see a lot of people actually like these body odor smells and just consider it to be spicy. Which is why I thought this thread may be a little controversial like some of my other threads.

    See I just reread what MR said, basically the same thing as here.

    Times have changed to a little less boring. :P

    Btw MKK can be salty and sweaty body odor, but it can also smell like a sweet civet and rose amber. I have found it to be really addictive! To be completely honest though, I've never worn this out in public yet, I've only worn it at home and usually 2-3 hours before heading to bed, and when I sniff my wrist the next day, I can still smell a little bit of incense and vanilla plus saltiness - the kind that resembles dried sweat.

    Plus Plus smells like a slightly less synthetic version of Dunhill Desire, which smells like body odor, at least to me. (and everyone who came in contact with me while sporting both of those) HOWEVER.. as I said, it just depends on the person. What some consider to smell like b/o others classify as spicy.

    If you think of armpit body odor, I will suggest Cartier Declaration. Fou d`Absinthe has a kind of sweaty note in the late dry-down..

    Oud27 (nitro musk, and civet aka dirty underwear), Al Oudh (cumin overdose , aka armpit), and the most offensive, Rose31 ( cetalox laevo, aka SEX)

    Safraleine (Givaudan) plus Immortelle resembles the infamous sun drenched but clean skin, while the addition of a tiny amount of aldehyde C12-Lauric plus lavender could be a hint on soap. But it bites each other LOL.

    Rose 31 doesn't smell so strongly animalic to me, maybe the rose tempers it a bit. Another one similar to this is Hammam Bouquet, which has even more floral and a bit less animal. Al Oudh smells a bit like b*tt. (Don't ask me how I know!!) Although in a sense, I can see the point. It might be very interesting to layer it with something else.

    By the way, two that I would actually wear would be Hammam Bouquet and Oud 27.

    No one has mentioned Alexander McQueen's Kingdom? This is the true "aisselles du dandy" (dandy's armpit) scent for me: floral and with the scent of a man's armpit/skin. Very animalic due to the cumin.
    "No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this." Desert Rose by Sting and Cheb Mami, Album 1999.

    I've read a lot that Kingdom is loaded with cumin and smells like sweaty people....

    Al Aoud from L'Artisan has a heavy dose of cumin too, but it's pretty well blended. Smells to me a bit like "idealized" sweat.

    The rose notes in Rose 31 offset the cumin to me. It turns too woodsy/spicey im my wearing to be a "sweaty" scent.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned 212 Sexy by Carolina Herrera, which almost always gives me this impression within the first 5-10 mins of the fragrance.

    I have always thought there was a peculiar BO-ish vibe to Kenzo Jungle Homme (I'm strangely attracted to this note at the same time).

    Guys, just imagine: how virile and sexy would women find you if you were well-groomed and handsome but smelt faintly of BO, something spicy, and something sweet? That's gotta be a turn on, right?
