    Default IF you had a signature scent, what would it be ?

    Dont know why, but I actually consider having a signature scent and sticking with it and never do. I simply have too many choices at my disposal. Lets say you were to go with one signature scent for day and one sig scent for night, what would they be ?


    Day: Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

    Night: MiP EdP

    In my case Prada Amber Pour Homme is my real signature scent. I wear it very often, and the days I don't wear it, I have to at least smell the cap it's so hard for me to part with it. I wear it in different situations, in different moods and it never lets me down. It keeps my spirits high!

    I don't have a consistent signature scent, but if forced to pick a day and night scent it would be:


    L'Instant De Guerlain Pour Homme and EDP version. Two absolutely beautiful and unique scents.


    Antaeus and Tuscan Leather would be my other choices.

    For me, there's no such thing as a signature scent. It would be like wearing the same clothes every day. Variety is the spice of life, as some wise person once said.

    Default Re: IF you had a signature scent, what would it be ?

    Really no such thing for me. But if I HAD to choose one day/hot weather and one night/cool weather fragrance, they would be:

    Day/hot: Gendarme V
    Night/cool: YSL M7 (I have only worn or smelled the original version)
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Gendarme or curve for me. Niche stuff is for special occasions or going out.

    I find a "signature scent" too tedious, but, if I had to conjure one for that fantasy, it would be:

    Day - Joop! Homme
    Night - Givenchy Gentleman

    Égoïste is - and will always be - my signature scent.
    But, it gets fierce competition from Antaeus; Dune;
    and Fahrenheit. Not to mention Poison and No 5.

    Probably Sous le Vent, maybe tipping towards Tiffany for Men or New York.

    SLV is more daytime and the orientals more evening. Both have enough citrus up front and breezy herbal information to make me happy, it's really a question of whether to drop into a cool mossy chypre mood or warmer woods at the backend.

    In my own day to day, I always like to smell lots of different things. I have many samples and several fragrances and I even get the added joy of a diversified scent portfolio with various traditional shaving creams, bath soaps, and home fragrance!!!

    But I really understand the idea of a "signature scent" I relate it to a significant other, or a place, an event, a time of year, some nostalgic memory. i think perhaps its the external factors that make a scent signature for me, rather than the scent itself.

    Say you start to date someone, and you just happen to wear a fragrance, they come to love that fragrance, and they share their love of it with you. They identify it as you, on their sheets, on your sweater they wear, and when they are close to you. There's just something very powerful and comfortable in that, that drives me to want to wear that signature.

    Or perhaps, you wear a fragrance on a chance night, and it just feels so fitting so perfect, and the night is so memorable and wonderful, you cant wear anything else but that and it feeds not only your memories, but is a portion in the picture everyone else who was their painted in their head.

    Silver Mountain Water for me

    and every new years eve since high school I have to wear Original Santal, nothing else will do haha

    outside of these, there are many fragrances I like very much and wear a lot whenever I feel compelled, and would not mind people associating them with me....... who knows they may one day turn into a signature for me too!!!

    The first time I've ever worn a fragrance and thought: "there's no point having all these others because I want to wear this for the rest of my life and nothing else" was when I first tried Tobacco Vanille. One day soon, I'm going to buy a flacon and spend every day and night in tobacco heaven, but until then:

    Day: L'instant de Guerlain pour Homme
    Night: Tobacco Vanille

    What a cop out!

    Ok, so let's say the evil wizard that pawful mentions says, "choose 2 and only 2 scents to wear from now forward, or else I'll destroy them all and destroy your sense of smell as well!" Then which would you choose?
