    Default My Movie Scents Game - Nicholson as Jack Torrance (The Shining)

    This website is so extensive that this has probably already been done in some form or another, but it seemed like a cool idea to me.

    Aside from blood, of course, if you were told that Jack Torrance from The Shining had a signature scent, what would you guess it was?

    Remember, he wasn't always an evil, axe-wielding psychopath. Before he was possessed (or went crazy, depending on your interpretation), he was actually a loving dad with an alcohol problem.

    So.... name that scent (damnit)!

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme. Perfect thing to wear while typing Jack is a dull boy.

    Lancome Sagamore. Seemingly uncomplicated initially but eventually develops into something quite hauntingly beautiful. Sinister!

    Haaaaahahaha!! That's f'n great!

    Oh man, if they had done the preview that way and I went and saw that in a theater by myself late at night, I think by now I'd probably be wearing L'Jacquet Du Strait pour Homme by Assylume Lunatique.

    ....I really don't deserve to live for humor like that.... sorry...

    That was an old movie, so most colognes that I wear weren't around when that movie was made. However, if I disregard the timelines and go with the fact that Jack was a writer, maybe a spritz of Paul Smith Story would fancy him.

    Priceless, Adonis. Absolutely hilarious!

    Hmm... All the good ones seem taken. Maybe something from Thierry Mugler's Coffret, inspired by Perfume: The Story of a Murderer? Maybe Jacky boy would have worn Aura. It's supposed to amp up what's already lurking in the background.

    Or LesNez's L'Antimatiere. Certainly churned up a storm in the reviews, and apparently it's "not all there."
    Anakin: What was that all about?
    Obi-Wan: Well, R2 has been...
    Anakin: No loose wire jokes.
    Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?
    Anakin: He's trying.
    Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!

    ETO's Secretions Magnifique? Isn't it supposed to smell like blood?

    I think Hermes vintage Equipage kind of fits the era and the vibe of that hotel. That scent is supposed to smell like a "cold pipe" and it reminds me of a place where there has been a lot of smoking.

    Ha!Ha! Excellent!!! In fact to be honest, that was better than the film, which let's face it, was a pretty god awful adaptation of a good book!!
    Stephen King's own TV mini series version with Stephen Weber and Rebecca DeMornay was much much better and more faithful!!! Give it a try if you haven't seen it!! And, mods... sorry for going off topic!!
