Thread: Most powerful fragrances?
Think Gordon Gekko.
Most Tom Ford private blends.
Aoud Lime with an extra shot. N U C U L A R
Simplex Sigillum Veri
Joop!, A*Men, Le Male, Aramis, Azzaro pH, Drakkar Noir
My most powerful atm: Coromandel!
Three contenders are as follows:
1. Bogart One Man Show (Gold Edition) - Thermonuclear spillage and longevity
2. Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men - 2 sprays and you're good for 24hrs!!
3. Bogart Pour Homme - Cherry Tobacco on steroids

+1 for Bogart frags, they are incredible.
Aramis: the pure tradition of powerhouses, no doubt.
Ambre Russe is boxin in the same league.
Creed Spice and Woods from the one that I have in my collection and maybe Chergui
Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.
It's in my top 10, but I never wear more than 2 sprays. Most frequently, I wear only one 1 spray.
Snarky is as snarky does.
from my collection tho
Not necessarily in this order:
-Clive Christian X
Egoiste is just one of those fragrances that I don't 'get', at least yet
I've given it several (albeit quick, at a store) tries and not only did it not strike me as remarkable, I don't even remember what it smells like
Costume National Homme
One Man Show Golden Edition, by far. Bogart pour Homme.
Keep Smelling Good
Definitely Bois du Portugal.
Creed Vintage Tabarome
Montale - Black Aoud
Amouage - Jubilation XXV
Amouage - Gold Men
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui
"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
"You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do." J.G.
Antaeus sounds good but Aramis probably would be most age appropriate for powerful and wealthy. Loud and projecting it could only be that untamed beast Kouros.
Salvador Dali pour homme
Bijan for men
"Le parfum est la musique du corps"
M7 seems pretty powerful to me. At first if you're not careful with the sprayer it's almost overwhelming. Also, Tobacco Vanille is pretty strong stuff. Oh and both of these seem to feel pretty powerful too, along with Amouage Jubilation XXV if you want to feel really wealthy.
Finally tried Aramis today
Kouros feels like a quiet and tame baby next to it! Though, Kouros also feels more civilized, like a man in a nice suit, while Aramis feels like a leisure suit, a beer gut and a cigar.
Funny story: I just found out my mother used to wear Aramis while I was younger. So much for the hyper-masculine association!

Annick Goutal SABLES
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
