    In case it's not true He actually wore Floris No. 9, I'd like to replace that with Grey Flannel

    Thanks for the link. I like the reference to Fleming's actual literary reference.

    I'd vote for Richard James EDT or Guerlain's Mouchoir de Monsieur.

    Depends on which Bond to me. The Bond from the novels/early 60s?

    Eucris, Floris 89, Habit Rouge.

    Contemporary Bond in film?

    More a puzzler. Maybe GIT or BdP or even Eucris. I like Eucris. Glad I read Shamu's review.

    Good point. That's EXACTLY the kind of scent that might get "placed" in a Bond movie.

    Bond doesn't wear fragrances. He thinks they're for pussies galore.

    Lol - very good.

    I think he'd wear Cartier Santos in either formulation, really manly but with a very sexy but subtle drydown.

    Seriously, they never mention fragrances for him in the novels or the movies. Stealth is important for tactical operations / spying. Sillage isn't stealthy.

    True but he does also take time out to pursue, to continue the wordage, pussy galore...

    I think he'd send away to the Perfumed Court or Luckyscent for samples before deciding.

    Apart from the unanimously recognized Floris

    something classic and immensely stylish like

    I assume you wanted to say 89 and not 9?

    This item has been of interest to me and I've seen it in several threads here and other forums.

    As near as I can tell, there is some evidence that author Ian Fleming liked and wore Floris 89. I've seen been debates whether it was ever mentioned in the novels as a fragrance for Bond. I have not read them all so can't say.

    Trumper's Eucris evidently makes a cameo appearance in the move DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER.
