    Exclamation looking for scents that smell like liquor or booze

    I like many types of scents, and of the many I don't have alot of perfume that gives off this type of scent.
    When you go to the club or a bar what do you smell there the most, sweat,booze or liquor that is either on someone's breath or on the floor that some tipsy person has spilled over

    To me I enjoy this type of scent and don't exactly want to smell like a drunk person but I guess I want to be sober and smell like a drunk person lol.


    What I do have is the following
    lord molyneux
    escada pour homme
    mcm twenty four


    I am cool with the brandy, gin,vodka, and especially rum type of scents

    If I have to combine two perfumes that will result in this type scent fine with me.

    Idole by Lubin - it has a dark rum in the congo sort of vibe and is also great in the heat

    Jasper Conran Mister is very boozy in the opening and dries down to a boozy / cigarette-y type of scent (reminiscent of the tobacco in Cuba Red) - very longlasting and persistent fragrance - apply with caution!!

    Dunhill (brownish juice with the silver cap), around 2003, I believe. Reminds me of Jack Daniels.

    Another vote for Ambre Russe and its vodka. Also, try Le Dandy for its whiskey/cognac top notes.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Though I haven't tried Pure Malt, it's said to have a remarkable whiskey smell.. Good luck getting it though. Hopefully they'll bring this back again so those of us who missed out can see what all the hype is about.

    Tommy Bahama Set Sails South Seas has a rum note, and St Barts has a tequila note, both of which are noticeable to me. Nicole Miller has a boozy and apple opening, fantastic and a less common fragrance. Ambre by Baldessarini has a fantastic whiskey note as well that stays around for quite a while. Champaca Absolute by Tom Ford has a very prominent cognac note, but I would not blind buy this one without trying.

    I think Idole is a perfect bet, if you can cope with the saffron note here (I can't, unfortunately). Ambre Russe is a masterpiece, but maybe too much for your setting (heavy and cloying) and also, the booze note disappears quickly.

    Escada Homme and Nicole Miller for Men are my two favorites. Set Sail St. Barts for men by Tommy Bahama has a potent Tequila notes, and Kiss Him by Kiss also has a fairly strong Rum note.

    nobody has mentioned d'orsay's le dandy yet. is it no longer in production? this seems to have often been mentioned in older boozy threads a lot. maybe it has lost some of the hype but i still like it.

    You might check out frags with juniper berry. They tend to be dry and reminiscent of gin. A couple have already been mentioned. A few others are Creed Baie de Genievre, Guerlain Coriolan or its reincarnation L'Ame d'Un Heros, and Cade aftershave by L'Occitane.
