    Default Which fragrances smell closest to your clothes after a bonfire?

    What are some fragrances with smoked wood notes? Or even fragrances that smell like a bonfire overall? Please and thank you!

    If you're looking for this identical scent, you will not find a better match than http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...ov/TYPE_B.html


    Apparently it falls off pretty quick and that's the only reason I don't own it. It smells incredible. It's actually been on my mind since my first encounter with it.

    I own Ambre Sultan and this pales in comparison to my suggestion from CB I Hate Perfume. There is a little smokiness from Ambre Sultan but nothing like the bonfire of Burning Leaves.

    I think a bonfire has two flavours: First, the fragrance in the room while the bonfire is burning, which is very pleasant. Second, how your clothes smell the next morning, which is unpleasant, IMHO.

    You refer to the clothes smell. It puzzles me, because that clothes smell after a bonfire is like dirty clothes... it doesn't resemble the bonfire, nor the burnt wood, but... it's something like sweat, the opposite of clean.

    If you want the bonfire fragance, I agree, it's nice. But the clothes... I don't like that.

    (In fact, whenever I go to a house with a bonfire, I enjoy it, but I always dislike the fact that every cloth I'm wearing will need a deep wash )

    Baldessarini Ambre has this smell. So does Michael Kors for men.

    Last week I went to a bonfire and wore a sample of Le Labo Santal 33. It melded nicely with the bonfire, even though it didn't smell like a bonfire itself. If you're going to a bonfire, I definitely can say that this is a nice one to wear.

    I guess the obvious one would be Bonfire by Demeter. I haven't sampled it, but I have enjoyed the Demeter fragrances I've tried. The only problem is they are short-lived, edc type strength scents.

    This is a great thread.

    I can't say that 'Breath of God' smells like clothes after a bonfire ( too many cold, wet extended camping trips swatting mosquitoes around a fire of damp wood in dirty bluejeans has cured me of wanting that smell !) but it's sure worth smelling as far as an outdoorsish sort of smell goes.

    I wore it mushroom hunting this fall, and it was the perfect choice.

    It is genius, but. . . not an everyday scent. On me, it smells exactly like I've just stepped in from the barbeque.

    Besides the obvious ones that are particularly designed to smell like a bonfire (these are not usually all that great fragrances, unfortunately) CdG 2 Man and Eau des Iles are good suggestions. Smokiness of EdI isn't exactly that of a bonfire, but atleast it really is quite smoky.
