    Default Your ideal fragrance

    Here is something to think about. If you had the creative freedom to make your own cologne what notes would it have?


    My ideal:

    Top:Mandarin
    Middle: Leather notes
    Base: Tobacco and wood notes

    This frag would be very mature and strong but that mandarin would blend in it to tone it down and give it a sweet , fresh and pleasant smell at the same time that you could use all year round.

    If I were going to make my own fragrance, I would probably work on it for years. And then, when it was similar to Armani Eau Pour Homme, I would realize it was a wasted effort on my part.

    That would be an interesting scent, and a real challenge in some ways to keep the jasmine on the top and the leather above the amber/musk...

    My perfect fragrance would be a perfect eau de cologne with natural ingredients and a little longevity. It would have bergamot, neroli, lime, orange blossom, musk, and rosemary.

    I like spices and rose mixed with patchouli and tobacco with maybe an incense/cedar resiny flavour in there.

    Or... I'd like the darkness of Black Orchid with a rich dark rose underpinned by the rich woods of Cartier Santos with the sweet seductive luxury of fine sandalwood oils in there. All combined with an exotic spicy edge of cardomum with a hint (and I do mean a hint) of cumin.

    I agree - as long as it's an authentic musk not some of the bloody awful synthetic musks you get today.

    Based on the notes I like the most, something including the best combination of the following or just a group of them (since basenotes are prominent, as per the notes mentioned): vervaine, patchouly, musk, tobacco, cinnamon, juniper, vetiver, sandalwood, amber, benzoine/vanilla, oakmoss, cedar and jasmine.

    Based on fragrance - styles, smething very traditional in spirit, powdery yet masculine, with good longevity (6 to 8 hours), very complex but with limited sillage.
