    Default Looking for a boozy fragrance to add to my rotation.

    What's up guys? Like always you have been a huge help in steering me in the right direction when it comes to fragrances. I am looking for a boozy fragrance besides Pure Malt to add to my rotation. I was thinking about the Kilian line, Straight to Heaven. I already own Tobacco Vanille which has a somewhat boozy quality and I feel that Spiriteuse Double Vanille would be a waste by already owning and loving TV. I also feel that Back to Black would be a waste as well since it does have a similar quality to it like TV. I was wondering if you could list 3 fragrances with that boozy quality to help me narrow down my sampling?

    Im a fan and own StH. That rum is strong off the top but very unique and lasts forever. I believe it to be a warm weather frag and this one does not open up on me until the weather is warmer 60° F+.

    I cant think of any right now lol but im sure others will chime in. Be sure and test StH if you go that route, its not for everyone.

    So, you think this is better suited for warmer weather?

    I do, I actually wore it on cold morning (20's is cold here) and could not even detect it on my skin until it warmed up later that morning. I just wont wear it on colder days here but its usually warm in Phoenix so its right up my alley.

    Ungaro III is the thing that immediately comes to mind.
    Guerlain Homme intense does the booze thing in a pretty clever way.
    Idole comes to mind as well, but I'm not really sure if that's what you're looking for.

    Spiriteuse Double Vanille is substantially different from Tobacco Vanille. Quite a bit different. Get both, wear both.

    I agree that they are both different. What I meant by similar is that they both hit you in the face with an over the top vanilla during the dry down. That is why I was looking elsewhere is all. I actually am I very big fan of the scent.

    +1, on me the vanilla in SDV almost disappears in the drydown and a real spicy richness emerges.

    Also L'occitane's Immortelle very cognac/syrup booze.............

    HdP 1740 Marquis de Sade (Boozy/Wiskey esque with leather and pipe tobacco)
    C&S Cuba (Boozy Rum/Cigar Tobacco)
    Creed VIW (Boozy Coconut Rum, similar to Malibu)
    Idole EDP (Spicy Rum)

    The Frapin line will also be a great place to start, since the majority of their line is made up of boozy/congac esque offerings.

    Have you tried the Idole EDP? It sounds like exactly what I am looking for.

    Has anybody had any experience with 1697? I am leaning towards Idole the edp or 1697. I will probably get samples of both.

    Well I've had both of these. 1697 is more tobacco and deep woods with the boozy smell. A very distinctive scent. Idole EDP is spicier than 1697 and the booze note is more noticeable. The spices do dry out a little and the leather is drier - this is a wonderful fragrance but it is a very positive charge. I think 1697 feels older, more experienced, calmer and more mature. Idole is a little wilder and more outspoken and a younger scent. Idole could be worn by a woman or man, but I can only see 1697 on a man. Good luck!
