    While I enjoy someone employing the term "badass" to fragrance, it's a pretty nonspecific term.

    I would think for most who would enjoy that term applied to frangrance that YSL and Mugler probably the most badass.

    CDG is a little too arty/ avante garde to be badass IMO but almmost.

    Caron could be since they have yatagan.

    Aramis: at least their vintage formulations
    Guerlain: while they still produced very dandified and definitely no run of the mill-scents
    Knize: I mean how are they holding up such leathery, green-sporty or smooth powdery-floral frags in the heyday of aquatics?
    Loewe: such an unassuming yet stunning and non-generic European fragrance house

    In terms of designers, Thierry Mugler looks like he could pick up a car.

    Serge Lutens takes the cake with Muscs Kublai Khan. Takes balls to make that kind of fragrance

    Hmm between Thierry Mugler and YSL for designers.

    Not very familiar with Niche perfumes yet, but after sampling Serge Lutens today, wow, some crazy spices in some of their perfumes, definitely a house with balls.

    bad·ass/ˈbadˌas/
    Noun: A tough, aggressive, or uncooperative person.
    Adjective: Tough or aggressive: "a badass temper".

    Andy Tauer is kind of a self-styled perfume 'badass', I suppose... with his manifesto and public denouncement of other houses, and stuff.

    For me it would be Chanel.....(designer)

    I base this on a simple formula:

    10% that Platinum Egoiste, Pour Monsieuer, and Antaeus are 3 of my top 15 favorite fragrances
    90% that I saw a movie about Coco Chanel in which Audrey Tautou played her. Any sentence that shares the words "ass" and "Audrey Tautou" is sure to work me into a lather

    If I had to name a niche it would be Mazzolari.......in fairness I have only sample Lui, but the name Mazzolari sounds kind of bad ass and that scent makes me feel like King Kong's little brother.

    Bad Ass? YSL- No doubt. Kouros, Rive Gauche PH, Opium PH, Jazz, M7, Pour Homme, and all those crazy flankers- quite Bad Ass indeed.

    When I think "badass," I think of a man comfortable in his own skin and confident in himself. He needs no fragrance to buoy up his sense of masculinity. My "badass" scent is the smell of his skin, his unique "odeur virile" and sweat. That being said, then maybe just a touch of jasmine essential oil right between his pecs, or Parfum d'Habit or Cuir Ottoman.

    plus 1 to Etat Libre D'Orange! Just look at their catalogue... Next thing you know, they will produce "Divine Sewage"

    Designer - YSL - Kouros in and of itself assures this. But they also have other wonderful scents.

    Niche - Creed - Confidence/Cockiness and products that actually deliver. Every new scent is a major event.

    Vintage MPG... Jean Laporte, is a frigging genius! When a perfumer has total freedom, and control this is the result.

    Vintage Aramis...Often times an underrated house, and often times does not get the respect it deserves.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    Good lord. I'd never seen a pic of him, but Googled it based on your comment. Not exactly what I would have imagined him to look like. He's a big mofo!
