Thread: SLEAZY fragrances!
Two of my favorite frags, Drakkar Noir and Brut, are considered by many people to be sleazy. You know, the kind of frag that Larry the Lounge Lizard would wear. In fact, I read a review on BN that described Drakkar Noir as "this is a sleazy fragrance", and I thought it was hilarious. I'm talking frags that have no class, at least to people who don't like or wear them.
This thread is here just for laughs, NOT to make stereotypes about people who wear these frags. Trust me, if there's anyone who should be offended by this thread, it should be me, since I'm a hardcore wearer of both Drakkar and Brut.
I mention Drakkar and Brut because those are the first colognes that I think of when the word "sleazy" is mentioned in the fragrance context. What frags do you think fall into the sleaze category?

A wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf. The scents of today are doubly as disreputable as '80s scents. You will seldom meet a modern person as sweet as the scent he wears. I prefer honest masculinity to under-handed insincerity; fist-fights to lawsuits.
Seems I remember a basenoter describe Acier Aluminum as a scent for 1970s era porn stars. While I really like Acier Aluminum, I can see it being considered "sleazy".

Stud by Phat Pimp is an animalic, lactonic fougere that oozes sleaze, but it's far more interesting than the majority of $150-$300 niche fragrances.
You could call thousands of them sleazy but it's usually because people use too much of them. Drakkar Noir was/is like that because many people tend to saturate themselves with it.
I can't relate with Aramis being sleazy. My dad's an emergency room doctor/intensivist/medical director at a major hospital, he's worn Aramis for 30 years and all kinds of patients (and others) are still always telling him how good it smells. It does smell great, and if Patou pour Homme is the smell of man, Aramis isn't far behind. It's also one of the few classic chypres that hasn't been thrashed by EU regulations. Just use it with a little finesse.

Aramis is another favorite of mine, and though I don't find it sleazy at all, if you bathe yourself in it, it does smell sleazy and crass.
I think we define frags as sleazy because of the sleazy people we have experienced that wear them so there will be a lot of different answers.
I think most popular modern "clubbing" frags are sleazy.
Obsession for men. Seedy middle aged math teacher trying to seduce young students, a man visiting a bar picking up an unhealthy looking woman after money gets exchanged, extramarital affairs in cheap 70's hotel rooms, etc, all concentrated in this juice.
If you're thinking sleazy as in Appetite for Destruction era Guns N' Roses sleazy, give Dirty English by Juicy Couture a try. I like it a lot.
I've heard Pressa wears Paco Rabanne

Santos Eau de Sport (and I love it)
All the loud 70s-80s era loud herbal-woody fragrances come off as 'sleazy' to me. Imagine a dodgy VHS Ron Jeremy porn flick with elevator music, a cheesy intro, and 'inspired' acting..
La Nuit de L'Homme EDT
Acqua di Gio here in Sweden for sure.
Not many native Swedes wearing this.
Aramis immediatly sprung to mind for me too , as well as Paco Robanne
Lots and lots of one of these:
seems like there's a correlation between price and sleaze, as many of the older frags happen to be inexpensive or available at drugstores, without the glass between...
I cannot evoke a sleazy rendering to go along with a frag no matter how hard I try... maybe the original Sure deodorant scent.
If you have "A Wide Stance" this might be the scent for you.
It gets no sleazier.....well...perhaps Quorum.
