    Default Fragrance that smell like gasoline?

    I happen to love the smell of gasoline, but inhaling too much may be toxic. Perhaps this explains my love for Fahrenheit. I know Lucky 6 I believe opens up similar to Fahrenheit's middle notes, but that doesn't last long.. literally 3-5 minutes. So with my knowledge of fragrances and having a nose that's been around the block a few times, other than these 2 giving off that oil/gasoline smell, more notably Fahrenheit whom executes it much better.. Are there any other fragrances with an oil or gasoline note? Preferably gasoline.. MMMMMM!

    Himalaya.
    I've had lots of girls ask their friends what smells like gasoline prior to unloading it.
    I always played dumb. No biggie, it was my least favorite of the big 4 "flagship" millesimes.

    I'll also add Tar & Skai from the CdG Synthetic series, Nostalgia by SMN & Eau de Fier by AG.

    I would suggest that you try Antidote by Viktor and Rolf. Gasoline is not listed in the notes, but to me, the crazy mix of notes create a slightly synthetic feel that I felt was somewhat like Fahrenheit, but lighter.

    Donna Karan's Fuel Men. Full Bottles are about 200+ dollars, but the 10 ml are still available. To men, it's like a fruitier take on Fahrenheit.

    Hi all,

    I have to agree with my friend nsamadi. One of THE most unique fragrances ever created and (IMHO) ONE of a few fragrances that is truly worthy of the title "Masterpiece" is "Santa Maria Novella's NOSTALIGA".

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    Ditto on Nostalgia! You know that smell you get when pumping gas? that "headspace" of gas, as I call it? It's in there. But so is all the other smells that come with a high class car such as leather and woods. Even the bottle is shaped like a gear shift.

    Clean has a noticeable acetone note.

    I remember the first time I tried it. It was like, "Who poured nail polish remover in the Hawaiian Punch?"

    Caron's Pois de Senteur though I do think is a great perfume, has a strong and noticeable gassy petroleum vibe . Shalimar in EDT and extrait ( not EDP for some reason ! ) can come across as a bit gasoline-y to me too .
    ( I DO like gasoline in smell ! )

    Nostalgia by Santa Maria Novella. And Tubereuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens top notes do too.

    Sorry, I do not think Knize Ten or Bal a Versailles smell like gasoline.

    1st half of Knize Ten.

    SMN Nostalgia.

    If Himalaya smells like gasoline, then you have an 'off' bottle where the top notes are wonky.

    I've got the original formulation of DKNY Fuel for Men, and there is a subtle gas note in there. I usually hate these kinds of notes, like the rubber in Bvlgari Black, but I really like this one for some reason.

    Aromatics Elixir by Clinique smells like gasoline to my kids! They hate it - because they say it reminds them of the smell of a petrol station!

    I find both Knize Ten and Tauer's Orris have a hint of gasoline in the top, but I've yet to run across a total "gasoline" fragrance.
