    Default Fragrances that end up in your toilet

    I confess that I have made my purchase mistakes, what a better way to sort this out, by just spraying these " Errors " on your toilet How about you? Do you act in the same matter? Which one of your fragrances have been " promoted " to the Toilet? Up to now from my collection, these beauties have done a wonderful job!

    Shame on you! I really like Davidoff Adventure, although it's definitely not among the best scents I've ever tried I enjoy it a lot. There's something in it I haven't found in any other fragrance yet, I don't know if it's the combination of tea, pimento and the sesame but I think it smells pretty unique. Great fragrance for Fall... Oh, and it's dirt cheap which is always nice...

    I store my bottle of Kouros in the toilet, to make sure it stays fresh.

    Never. It feels like abomination to me. I swap or sell the bottles I don't use - this way they get recycled into new bottles I love.

    Fortunatley only a very few fragrances have turned to be "wrong" purchases for me but if I'd have to mention one it would be Marc Jcobs for Men. The funny part is that I bought it in 2003 and never got rid of it...strange things...

    I haven't done it yet, but now that I think about it, while I have a few candidates that would be deserving in my collection I think the "winner" would be L'eau par Kenzo. It is not really that it smells horrible, per se, but I don't like it much and it reminds me of the smell of toilet cleaner so it should feel right at home in the toilet where it belongs.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    We have Beyond Paradise by Estee Lauder in one of our toilets and Hypnose by Lancome in the other. I've just checked. I didn't put them there, the wife must have.

    Years ago before I got into fragrances and at a time when you were gifted any aftershave it was usually crappy drugstore stuff you would empty down the toilet. I remember having been given a bottle of Zino Davidoff which I just emptied down the toilet.

    I did not know any better at the time.lol

    I think some posters, like me at first, have understood that you flush those fragrances down the toilet, but you mean using them as a room spray for the toilet, right?
    I use samples when I'm on some trip and share a room with somebody to dignify the toilet after its use...

    W cant use room spray or burn Oud in the bedroom because of my son's infant asthma.

    We use Diptyque Essense of John Galliano and a home sprays from L'Occitane like the lavender and the lemon one.

    I'm tempted to use Blenheim Boutique if it doesn't get swapped lol.

    Hah and I thought I was the only one!

    Yes, sometimes I use fragrances to deodorise the bathroom, wardrobe, shoes etc.

    I won't name names though, it would probably offend too many here and get me kicked off BN.

    Actually Essence of J.G. Is excellent Alfarom. I was going to ask what proper perfumes smell like it. You should smell it if you haven't already . It's your taste.

    None of them can be classified as "bad" but, on the other hand, from such an high-end, upscale brand, I expect something more unique. Probably it's just me...

    I love it, but I've finally found a proper body-fragrance that is very close to it: Sigilli's Athunis.

    Having recently reached the half century mark in life, I think I've flushed most every major stinkbomb from my naive youth down the toilet. The only scents I've kept are Polo(Green bottle) and Old Spice. I've since apologized to my beautiful bathroom by leaving it only mild soap bars and an open window.
