    In an office? At the risk of offending many, I hasten to add this is tongue-in-cheek, and stereotypes are generalisations. LOL!

    Fresh green notes: A young man or woman who likes the outdoors and likes rock climbing. Uses a carabiner as a key ring.
    Rose/flowery notes: A woman who likes cabbage rose motifs on her bedspread. She only likes the colour pink to the point of nausea. Wears puffy chiffon or organza dresses.
    Citrus: A young woman or man in a summer outfit. Likes beach holidays and sports a suntan.
    Soap: A man in Grey Flannel, casual sporty, no tie. Intelligent and sexy.
    Vetiver: A man in a business suit. A professional. Might not be that intelligent, but his shirts are always crisp and ironed and he is athletic and trim.
    Leather: Sophisticated man or woman with classic style. Carries a worn leather attache case and wears linen and cotton. Actually bought things out of the J. Peterman catalogs.
    Aquatic notes: A 19-year-old boy who bought the most popular scent marketed in order to impress young women. Wears only one brand of clothing exclusively with logos on all of his clothes.
    Spices/oriental notes: An elegant woman in Haute Couture. Wears $600 shoes and carries an Hermes handbag.
    80's powerhouse notes: An older person who grew up adoring the Studio 54 days. Loud and obnoxious as his fragrances.

    very vivid descriptions primrose! good work!

    i actually put some bad descriptions in the aquatic section lol but decided to hold back at the last minute.

    interesting how perhaps people who lived through the 80's are reminded of clubs while the younger ones who were born in the decade like me think of them as gravitas bearing things. must be from the image we had of our fathers.

    i agree with david that someone that wears vetiver has fragrance knowledge or was hip in the 60's when guerlain came out with his. i've never heard of it outside basenotes/ this hobby. would never imagine asking an SA to try the vetiver had it not been recommended here.

    i'd ad lavender is for someone trusted with important things like a treasurer. or bank manager.

    i could see spice doing secretaries on the copying machine lol.

    Leather - sophisticated, distinguished, looking to make an impression.
    Aquatic notes - younger crowd, those who know little about fragrances.

    Honestly, at the risk of sounding lazy. I'd say anyone that isn't wearing an aquatic has a mind of their own and/or a girlfriend. At least in the US, it's just SO easy to get suckered into an aquatic, whether it being shoved down your throat by an SA or because your buddy wears it. If I find you wearing anything other than a popular aquatic or Le Male, I'd be quite surprised.

    Fresh green notes -- "good guy", "clean guy", but probably has a skeleton (or body) under the house

    Rose/flowery notes -- old fashioned, depressed, weak

    Citrus -- happy, carefree, irresponsible

    Soap -- possible body odor issues, self conscious, immature/childish

    Vetiver -- distinguished, gentlemanly, really old

    Leather -- formal, conservative, possibly a racist misogynist bigot

    Aquatic notes -- ladies man, "player", confident, opinionated, works hard & plays hard, extroverted

    Spices/oriental notes -- sensual, romantic, seductive, sex maniac, selfish, dark, mysterious

    80's powerhouse notes -- American Psycho, lack of fashion sense, jerk, narcissistic


    Note: I tried to include positive and negative for each. Since the poster wrote dominated, I took it to the extreme in my imagination.

    I agree that stereotypes are intrinsically unfair. However, generalizations are useful because they help us to categorize information, as David Bond pointed out. Therefore, everybody stereotypes. It's a psychological fact, not a political stance.

    The real question is how to tackle stereotypes. I think the most "high level of consciousness" thing to do is to drag them out in the open so that both "stereotyped" and "stereotyper" are made aware of them, instead of them operating under the surface. That makes the "stereotyped" better equipped to deal with reality and the "stereotyper" more critical of his judgment.

    With regard to this thread, in addition, it's all in jest. We're stereotyping based on cologne, how serious can that be?

    Rose/flowery notes: unbridled confidence, attention-seeking behavior, sweet tooth
    Citrus: Carefree, and probably middle-aged. Alternates (or possibly layers) with Lavender
    Soap: Methodical, cold, calculating, and conservative in appearance.
    Vetiver: To me, someone with more refined tastes. To most, the guy who smells a little off.
    Leather: Knows what he wants, has money, willing to stand out even if it means smelling like a wallet.
    Aquatic notes: Trying to impress....someone. Not a Basenoter.
    Spices/oriental notes: Wants his presence to be felt, probably went through an incense phase at some point in his life
    80's powerhouse notes: Powerful, and like most "leaders," a little out of touch.
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    Thanks Rumble for finding the thread. Its freakin' hilarious

    Id like to give this a try

    Fresh green notes-a tree hugger, likes dreamcatchers. May be an eco-terrorist.

    Rose/Flowery Notes-a bit of an arrogant snob, loves the limelight, has no clue that most people dislike him. Drinks only expresso, Pellagrino and wheat grass extract

    Citrus-very chipper, happy-go-lucky people. Quite slim. Probably medicated.

    Vetiver-A well travelled, smart man/woman of the world. Likes Vietnamese, Thai and Indian food. Seen it all and done most of it.

    Soap-A person of modest means. Maybe be overly concerned about appearance. Concerned that everybody wants them. Secretly obsessed by bad breath and BO concerns.

    Leather-Dead sexy. Everybody does want them. Loves men and women. Probably has a really thick wallet.

    Aquatics-Jersey Shore(nuff said)

    Spicy Oriental-Thinks outside the box. Has all the current electronic devices but hates using them. Very friendly and well-travelled. Well groomed and NOT a sheep

    80's-A very tiresome exec in financial or pharmaceuticals industries. Says he knew Steve Rubell and Regine personally. Drinks expensive scotch because its expensive but doesnt know the diff. Probably has E.D.


    All in good fun


    Cheers The Smartass
    My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)

    Have had so much fun fitting the people I work with into this - stereotyping is great as long as you know you´re doing it I love a good laugh on a Sunday morning
