    Default What is the iciest, chilliest, most camphorous fragrance you have tried?++

    I would like it chilly from top to dry down.

    While I don't like florals/fruity scents, I think in addition to buttery florals, I might enjoy really camphorous ones so if you also recall florals or fruity florals with menthol/camphor thing going on from top to dry down, do share. I don't want to smell like vapor rub but then again, I have never associated the bold, pure and chilly camphor smell with vapor rub/muscle balm. I am convinced these are two completely different odors :P.

    Please don't limit yourself to these floral/fruity category. I thought I should put them out there.

    I am a female in my twenties who tends to favour dry, mysterious unisex scents if this makes any difference but either ways, please do share whatever you can think of that is chilly and camphorous all the way . Thanks .

    hmm interesting post. Do not know the answers myself and intrigued to see the suggestions of others.

    This. When I first applied it to my wrist and inhaled the scent deeply, I thought it burned out my nasal passage with a powerful camphorous chill. Once I learned how not to overapply it, it became one of my absolute favourites. Elegant, airy, woody, sweet, resinous and mysterious with a capital "M"

    No camphor, but icy and chilly it is:

    De Bachmakov
    Eau de Parfum
    by The Different Company


    Luckyscents description is perfect:

    The Scoop
    In a tribute to his Russian ancestry and to celebrate the year of Russia in France, the Different Company’s co-founder (with Jean-Claude Ellena) and renowned designer Thierry de Baschmakoff joined forces with the perfumer Céline Ellena to compose the fragrance which bears his name. De Bachmakov is not a literal evocation of Russia, but a poetic fugue on the magical moment when snow begins to melt on the steppes and the earth gives way to the rites of spring; on the first rays of sun to touch the Siberian forests swept by winds from Asia.

    The fragrance is as limpid and bracing as a shot of ice-cold vodka: along with peppery, aromatic bergamot, the lemony, anise-tinged shiso leaves and tangy, zesty cilantro lend their green, aldehydic fizziness to the blend, sweetened by a sprinkle of nutmeg. Freesia and its tender, white floral notes add a jasmine richness to the heart: as the fragrance evolves, its limpidity gives way to a surprising chalk accord produced by a blend of woody notes and musk.

    De Bachmakov is sap and snow and the first spring flowers: a cool herbal potion brewed near the Arctic Circle. It is also the very gifted Céline Ellena’s last composition for The Different Company: all the more reason to snap up this gorgeous and truly unique fragrance.





    De Bachmakov Notes
    Cedar wood, bergamot, shiso leaves, nutmeg, coriander leaves, white freesia, soft chalk accord

    I was thinking Geranium Pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle, also. VERY intensely minty, however the geranium adds a bit of flower/skankiness to it. Very hard to describe, you have to smell it. Still...it's not very camphorous.

    Two others spring to mind:

    Scent One: Hinoki by Monocle x Comme des Garcons and Spirit of The Tiger by Heeley (inspired by the smell of Tiger Balm ointment)

    That was fun to read about, ... too bad its $1400.00.

    I like cool/camphorous scents as well!

    I'm wearing Eau de Lalique today, and it is cool, fresh, peppery, and dry with an herby edge (I smell dill and tarragon) that remains all the way through the drydown...I'd say definitely check it out. Not a lot of discussion about this one, but it's very good quality and can be had at a great price.

    I really enjoy the frozen Pears in Higher (Dior) (original - not Energy edition) and am thinking of making this my summer scent for 2011.

    2 excellent suggestions for a "chilled atmosphere" surrounding the wearer, without relying on mint.

    As for the Mint scents: Selection Verte, Oxford & Cambridge, Green Valley, Heeley Menthe Fraiche, Lacoste Booster, Fath Green Water, Live Jazz, Malle Geranium, Molinard Double Fraicheur, L'Eau De L'Artisan, CDG peppermint

    As for camphoraceous scents: Windsor I, Tubereuse Criminelle, Spirit of the Tiger, Body Kouros (sorta), Lacoste Booster (kinda), Oxford & Cambridge (Kinda)
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    Although not camphorous, Chanel No. 19 is a bit chilly, and a huge 5 star masterpiece IMO.
