    Smile Are there any fragrances that use rum as a predominant note?

    I recently fell in love with a shower gel from Korres called Juniper and Rum. I think it smells absolutely delicious! I'd love a scent that smells very similar to it, so I was wondering if there are any fragrances out there with a strong rum note?

    Thanks!

    St.Johns Bay Rum is the first thing to come to my mind, although I've never tried it https://www.stjohnsbayrum.com/BayRum.asp

    Straight To Heaven by By Kilian and Ananas Fizz by L' Artisan Parfumeur are two very good rum prominent scents.

    I think Le Dandy on the Parfums D'Orsay Website states "rhum" as the first topnote.

    Any quality Bay Rum - particularly try Meehan from Bonny Doon Farm. As rummy as it gets.
    Idole de Lubin.
    La Via del Profumo, Cuba Express - loads of amazing rum absolute, all natural.

    What he said

    Don't forget Malin + Goetz Rum Tonic, which I love as a soap but is available as an EDT. It's the same dirty rum/pineapple mix as Ananas Fizz, but with the accent on the dirty rum note instead of the pineapple.

    + Idole

    L'Eau Du Navigateur has a nice dose of rum amongst other notes (coffee, smoke, woods, spices).

    Totally forgot about that one, yes, this is a very affordable option too. Straight up rum - I wore a sample once to a Sunday BBQ party and it seemed to click perfectly w/ the vibe.

    Idole Lubin is the most proeminent fragrance on rum that i`ve ever tried. I detect boozy nootes on straight to heaven, but it doesn`t remind me of rum. And, besides that, i thought it didn`t lasted enough on my skin
    Doesn`t Vanilla Havana from L'Artisan list rum as one of its notes? Has anyone tried that? Is really proeminent on rum?

    +1 for Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Bart's. Prominent rum note. Such an amazing fragrance. It's a shame it doesn't get more attention (though it has come up quite a few times over the last couple of weeks. Maybe it's finally getting it's due).

    The rum note is evident for a short time in the top notes, but it burns off quickly IMO.

    I will give a +1 for Idole and Virgin Island Water

    Burberry London smells like port wine to me. A great boozy fragrance, but not rum.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near

    Just a shout out to Korres showergels - nearly all I have tried smell fantastic and do a great job. I am curently using the Cedar showergel and it smells fantastic and obviously loaded with quality cedar e.o.

    Some quality bay rums, especially those made to old recipes have a good dose of sugar cane spirit - which is rum. Bonny Doon Farm Meehan is one. It is true that many bay rums don't contain this, but some do.

    I thought about this one too, it has a apple and rum accord very lovely. It`s a pity that on me it doesn`t last and i have to overapply it to have a proeminent rum. Well, a great rum choice for office. I prefer the red delicious cologne version, the rum on it is a little more evident than the edt and both have the same sillage and longevity.

    Yeah, this one does have a rum smell to it. Too bad its completely smothered with a really tart/fake smelling apple syrup.
