    I could say Embalming Fluid by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab but that would be redundant. So..how about a triple dose of Domenico Caraceni 1913

    Joop! Homme...this stuff is so crap that it would keep the soil fertile for many years!!

    In all seriousness though I would probably go with something bright and airy like Creed MI...I don't want it to be morbid!

    I'll bow out gracefully drenched in Chanel of some kind. Probably a truck load of No.5 .

    LOL! Mimi, you can be embalmed in it!

    As for me, and I know this is a cop-out answer, I want to be buried with all of them. Just like the pharaohs of old, they were buried with all their possessions for use in the afterlife.

    I want to make sure I have my entire scent wardrobe with me!

    I've never smelled it, but after hearing it described by Luca Turin, I think Iris Gris might be fitting for the occasion.

    Well, you have the obvious puns here (and punning is all I can do with a thread this barmy): Eternity, Beyond Paradise, Back to Black, Angel, White Linen, ELDO Rien, Gorilla Pefume Breath of God or Superworldunknown, Passage d'Enfer, etc etc. In fact, there are so many it's unnerving. Is perfumery this morbid?

    What would please me more would be to be scented with something pertinent to the manner in which I died:

    Poison... gold-digging spouse
    Jasmin et Cigarettes... smoking kills
    Yatagan...serial killer
    Cool Water... lost at sea
    S-eX... heart attack
    100% Love...dysentery
    MoslBuddJewChristHinDao... a Sikh with a grudge
    Chanel Bleu... suicide

    Okay, enuff.

    1740:Marquis de Sade. I'd hate to end my life paying tribute to such a perv, but that scent speaks to me more than anything in my wardrobe, even Derby. I know....blasphemy!

    Probably a fragrance with prominent rose or vetiver notes to complement the dank, earthy elements in the grave. Got any recommendation?

    Well they say that Andy Warhol was buried with a bottle of Estee Lauder's Beautiful....so I guess I would go out with a bottle of Calvin Klein's Obsession. It sums up my era of between love and madness lies obsession.

    I think I would go for Joop! Homme as well...
    ... mainly because it's the only thing I can think of that would cover the smell of Formaldehyde
