    Millesime Imperial (Creed) -- smells like money, designed for a king
    Windsor (Creed) -- fit for a man who would have been king

    Herrera for Men (Caroline Herrera) -- smells like a million

    All of these I have had personal experience with. They are ranked first (being first choice) to last using criterion such as effect, quality, design, and the prestige of the House/Designer.

    From the previous posts, I particularly second Blenheim Bouquet, Creed BDP, Chanel pour Monsieur, Boucheron PH, Monsieur de Givenchy, Rive Gauche pour Homme and Van Cleef and Arpels pour Homme

    Others which might be suitable may also most male and unisex fragrances by Acqua di Parma, as well as Floris No. 89, Penhaligons Opus 1870, Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur and La Martina Hombre, since they all suggest, in different ways, boardroom- and -country club masculine stylishness

    Things like Van Arpels & Cleef pour homme smells very, very 80's. If you come as 20 year old entry level white collar worker trying to smell like 1 million bucks by sporting powerhouses from the 80's it might just have the effect of making you look akward, something you really don't want. And for certain fragrances, I think you must be something like a 50+ CEO to pull it off. Such as Vintage Tabarome.

    Unfortunately, it seems to me the recommendations here often ignore important parameters like age and station when answering these questions. So, my answer to you - it depends on age and job.

    I agree..

    Although i know the intention of the topic, to find a scent that projects success. To be honest, i think that most business would wear a subtle, settle less is more fragrance. A highly potent scent 80'er powerhouse could offend potentiel clients, we dont want that.

    Bvlgari Pour Homme (or a flanker) could actually be a very good choice.

    Something distinctive, refined, polite and not too heavy, such as:

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne or edition blanche
    Atelier Bois Blond

    A man of such importance can wear anything he pleases.

    Still, for business, seconding some choices on this forum:

    Bel Ami
    Equipage
    Richard James EDT
    Habit Rouge EDP or EDT
    Mouchoir de Monsieur
    Derby

    I'd recommend something understated and elegant such as Caswell-Massey or Creed's Vetiver '48. I think going with something obnoxious like Bois de Portugal or Antaeus is just so cliche it'll have a detrimental affect.

    for understated elegance. Think corporate raider Edward Lewis in Pretty Woman.

    Not because it is expensive but because the fragrance perfectly evokes the image the OP describes.

    Maxims pour Homme makes an excellent substitute for Vintage Tab.

    i have met some that use donal trump's scent (??), worth for men (much better), chanel PM (even better) and clive's No1 (good scent, but tacky overall) and a long etc

    i like it when people use VC&A for men, Boucheron PH and Signoricci (vintage)

    more often than not, many don't even know what is it that they're wearing
