    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.

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

    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.

    It's unthinkable for a bond to use any such thing non-british.

    Ergo,
    Ormonde Jayne, Jo Malone, Penhaligon's, Floris, and maybe Burberry are only possible contenders.

    Pick the most expensive and rare woody aromatic, and you are good to go.

    2 of the 007s wear creed that we know of. Brosnan wears Mi and Craig wears VIW, so if you want to smell like 007, wear Creed because 2 of them already do.

    I imagine Roger Moore wearing something simple and effective like Old Spice.
    Whereas, Daniel Craig is much harder, but he is IMO a smoother person than Moore, so it would have to be something classy. Maybe a Creed...

    Bond in the novels wears Floris No.89 , i think he used Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille in casino royale, Roger Moore used Brut deodorant to defend himself in Live and Let Die...

    IMO Bond should wear a classic powerhouse like Azzaro Pour Homme it will fit the bill.

    You are correct Monsieur Jacques, but do you know which batch it was that gave me away? Or indeed if I was wearing the vintage version or the reformulated one? 😊
