    Cool BEST: Clubbing Fragrances


    Hey guys! I noticed that everytime I go to clubs, I find myself reaching for only about 2-3 scents (Dior Homme, Pure Malt and sometimes Azzaro Pour Homme) from my wardrobe. But I want more. I wanna know what other frags are perfect for clubbing?

    What's your top 5?

    Thank you!

    i wore pure malt, but the smoke in the room made it feel like i don't have any cologne on. i would also like to know some good scents, especially those that can cut through smoke

    Nothing really. I usually go scentless. I've even worn some mega sillage monsters like Black Aoud and they're no match for a dark crowded place with about 1000 different smells in the air.

    I've only found two scents in my wardrobe that sort of work. S-eX by S-Perfume which reminds me of the smell of vinyl records or Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford because of its smokiness.

    Gucci Rush for Men is a go-to in this category. Ambre Sultan works well, too. Go light on the trigger with both. They're long-distance scents. The incensey notes go very well with clubbing.

    If you really want to set yourself apart and stand out in the crowd - don't wear any. You'll be a breath of fresh air.

    I don't agree with that, you just won't be noticed. A lot of people don't wear cologne and the people that do usually wear the typical ones and overapply as well. Finding something unique and being somewhat subtle about it is key.

    Some scents I've worn out that really work well for me have been...

    Hypnotic Poison
    La Nuit De l'Homme
    Tobacco Vanille
    Pure Malt
    Black XS
    Rochas Man

    I think almost anything with the proverbial "monster sillage" works so long as it doesn't turn funky on you when you heat up. It also depends on what kind of club you're at. The catch is that big frags are usually a love/hate affair (A-Men, Joop!) and you may really turn off someone you're hoping to turn on.
    Chicago, like almost all US and most European cities is now smoke-free so that is not usually an issue. But if it is, try Tom Ford's White Patchouli. It contains a huge amount of an industrial compound specifically created to mask stale smoke.

    I definitely make a distinction between clubs - vs. - bars/restaurants/lounges. If we're talking straight up dance clubs, the big places with the big dance floors, blaring music and lights, packed crowds etc. - I look for fragrances that have higher energy / sweetness / projection / etc. and although I LOVE Pure Malt, it's more a bar/lounge/restaurant fragrance to me.

    For true CLUBBIN' I go with:

    A*MEN
    Givenchy Pi
    YSL La Nuit
    Euphoria Intense
    Musc Ravageur
    Champagne de Bois (SSS)

    And in the summer or hotter weather I throw in - Versace Eau Fraiche

    I don't think you need monster sillage as much as you need a scent that accomplishes two things:

    1. Makes you feel confident and have great positive vibrant energy when you wear it
    2. Really smells good to the females who get in close to talk to you or dance with you...

    ..Because in most clubs it's so loud and crowded you need to be in close to have conversation, which means IMO you really DON'T need a fragrance with so called 'monster sillage'.

    Also, I hate Le Male. Maybe it smells good to women but it smells terrible to me, especially the powdery aspect of it. I simply do not feel confident or manly wearing it, which goes against my rule #1 above, so I don't wear it.

    I've been toying with the idea of getting 1 Million though...

    If any of you guys want a great clubbing scent that is a bit different, Escada Magnetism worked wonders for me.

    I guess it just depends on who you plan on clubbing. "Boy that guy sure was vicious but dam he smelled good!"

    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

    The first scent I would think of would be Gucci Envy for clubbing

    Others I think would be a good fit would be Musc Ravageur, Rochas Man, and Body Kouros
