    Default Your favorite scent for rainy days?

    I've moved back to the midwest recently, and it seems like it hasn't stopped raining since. While I hope that the sun comes out soon, I can't help but think that I might need to explore a few more fragrance options appropriate for grey days. I've been enjoying Encre Noire during this wet spell--just seems to fit. What about you--favorite scents for rainy days?

    Anything leathery, tobacco-smelling, musky or gourmand for my wardrobe, to my nose, there are several fragrance notes which are set in a better light as soon as the climate becomes damp and cool

    I find that [b]Grey Flannel[b] and Narciso Rodriguez for him work especially well on rainy days.

    Also, Bulgari Aqua and Six Scents "Wicken 3000", when looking for something lighter/fresher to wear on a rainy day.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ineke Derring-Do is supposedly best for rainy spring days. I have a decant that I wear for those occasions.

    Wow - just from the thread title, I thought Encre Noire too.

    The first grey rainy day after a warm spell, it just perfectly evoke the mood.

    I like Jontue, of all things, when it's raining. A shot of Demeter Thunderstorm on the ankles for accent, sometimes.

    +1 on the Narciso Rodriguez. I also like Krizia Time for rainy days.

    Cool Re: Your favorite scent for rainy days?

    Well, REL and Erolfa and Vintage Tabarome stay at 5 stars on a rainy day though they smell nothing alike
    -- As does Antaeus.

    But the following jump up to 5, imho:

    Hermes Rocabar
    L'Occitane Vetyver
    Chanel Egoiste
    Jacomo de Jacomo

    Need I tell you they smell nothing alike?

    And, come to think of it, Minotaure by Paloma Picasso and Tuscany/Etruscan by Aramis could probably weather a hurricane, let alone a little rain.

    Cheers,

    Mario

    Krizia Time is such an underated frag. To me it's the perfect Woody Floral Musk scent out there.
