Thread: "Me in the bottle"
L'instant de Guerlain Extreme
I'm warm And I'm modern.. but somehow classical. Like playing a Trance show in a town that still has cobblestone streets and old buildings!
i could alos wear with a great pleaudre
Vent Vert Vintage (Balmain)
Comme une évidence (Y. Rocher)
Gold Donna Karan ( with such a pleasure this one ..)
Jasmin de Varens
"A la Nuit" de Lutens
My style is pretty boring, really. I'm not a colorful or formal dresser, my life gives me no need to be, so black jeans and a dress shirt kind of maxes out my formality level! Looking at what I wear and trying to match a fragrance to it would probably come up with something fresh and inane, not at all my style of fragrance. Frankly I'm just not that into clothes, and feel no need to put on a tux to enjoy a formal fragrance.
But in terms of personality JAR's Jardenia ... reclusive, introverted, slightly odd, fond of flowers - and cheese!
Armani Eau pour Homme - very Old School and formal
I actually had to go and browse through my wardrobe but I think I foundone. By far not my favourite but consistent and a fairly matching description : Minotaure - Paloma Picasso
I'm full of contrasts, happy go lucky guy with the eventual let down mood swing and inexplicable frustration. Wholeheartedly devoted a lot of things but often slightly planless. Well dressed (not necessarily expensive) and apparently attractive/sexy but angry at myself for caring a bit too much about it. Old fashioned all right with very precise aesthetic ideas of what I consider class and style.
Overall just about bearable according to g/f and mates
Jaipur Homme I would have to say it has the mystery of a Moroccan spice market and is opulent like the intricate art of the far east. I am great lover and collector of items from the orient and most of my home decor is influenced by it so this fragrance does fit me.

By Kilian Straight to Heaven - that's me.
Come to think of it though, I could list 5-6 that I felt that same way about.

Well, the singular word I think that describes me is 'ingenuous'... and while one synonym of that is naive (!), others are simple, plain, honest, deceitless and natural.
So there can be just one candidate for me in a bottle:
I'm with Makassar - it can't be just one.

A*Men Pure Malt... just because i drink too much, and i smell like wearing it even when i'm not... (^_^)
I wish i had the charisma to say La Nuit De L'Homme, but that's reserved to Vincent Cassel's levels
Esencia de Loewe. You have to get pass the somewhat austere and cerebral exterior before you get to enjoy the smooth and awesome drydown...
Well, as a middle aged equity partner in a firm of accountants, I'd have to plump for Bois du Portugal.
Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.
I guess I have a look all be it 20 years younger than I should dress , I dont think I smell in accordance to my style tho
Another Minotaure Paloma Picasso here, verging towards Mhyrre Ardente AG. Bright but mysterious, warm but a bit of a loner, sweet all the way, but mostly when I dry down
Isnt this topic just way too pretentious? I wont point fingers, but in another topic someone described certain notes to be for the "Mentally-challenged" and here their "fragrance" are obviously more "classic" "tasteful"... No offence, but i think someone could use some fresh air.
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

I pick Etro Shaal Nur. It's unpretentious, fairly feminine, multi-faceted, modern but not edgy, and it was created with nobility in mind. :-)
