Lumiere Noire Pour Homme.
Thread: Special Occasion scent??
Whats the one scent you go to for special occasions??
SALE:Bond no.9, Armani Code Summer, Prada, Kenzo, Amouage...more!!
For the most part, I vacillate between M by Puredistance and Harrods Swarovski Crystal Oud Edition by Bond No. 9.
Creed Windsor !
Depends a lot on the special occasion, but I'd say Knize Ten, Versace l'Homme, Chanel Antaeus, Armani Eau pour Homme, Sandalwood by Crabtree&Evelyn are way up on my list.
I use a few, it depends on my mood and the setting:
Mona di Orio: Oud
Mona di Orio: Vanille
My celebration perfume is Gold man. Big, huge, rich.
Maybe Clive Christian No 1 Pure Parfum, but could also be any of a dozen others.
Creed Windsor or Jubilation XXV.
Penhaligon's LP No 9
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Harrods Oud +1
La vita è breve, la morte vien.
Wanted!!! Rectoverso Tea Tobacco by Ulric de Varens. PM Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LIDGE...Yep, LIDGE! But I will use it for non-special occasions sometimes too.
Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Having recently married (three months ago), I can tell you what I wore to my wedding (He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood), wedding reception 6 hours later (Eau Sauvage), and the next morning (Guerlain Heritage).
Recently wore Rochas Moustache to my daughter's junior high graduation.
Of your wardrobe, I've only tried the Jil Sander, but I recall that it would do well for a special occasion.
Want to revive this thread because I am curious. Here are mine so far:
Amouage Tribute Attar
Pure Distance M
MDCI Invasion Barbare
Creed Royal Oud
I think these will be in the future as well:
Clive Christian X
Chanel Bois de Isle - Parfum
What are yours?
My current special occasion scents are pure oud and incense oud by Kilian.
Creed Spice and Wood
On special occasions, I reach for something from my Roja Dove and Xerjoff 17/17 collection. The nature of the occasion will determine which one I choose to wear. For instance, for my 25th anniversary I wore Roja Dove "Roja", my wife scent was Xerjoff 17/17 Dama Rose. The last birthday celebration I attended, I wore Diaghilev. And the previous, Xerjoff 17/17 RichWood. For my niece weeding it was Danger. My last business dinner was Xerjoff 17/17 Homme.
Depends on the special occasion, season, event, etc. I do like Jubilation XXV as a celebratory fragrance, especially during the fall and winter holidays.

Patou Pour Homme
Spice & Wood
Vintage Bel Ami
I have recently acquired Patou Pour Homme Prive and no doubt that will join the list.
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
Strangely I tend to go for Van Cleef & Arpels Zanzibar - discontinued, rare and rather lovely IMO.
Generally what is most expensive or limited in quantity:
Extreme Oud Kilian
Pure oud; oils and attars
Something from the Xerjoff Oud Stars range
A White Oud attar I got years ago and have been unable to find since
To be frank, no boast, most of what I've got probably falls in special occasion territory so I tend to wear them whenever.
What I'd like to try
Prices Rreduced!UK Only:Kilian B2B, Incense Oud, Pure Oud/MFK Pluriel/Ensar Oud/AgarAura Oud
My UK Swapsies!
Need some Roja help: Need a Roja cap, any one (gave away my Fetish cap)
Also my Harrods Oud bottle needs a cap
I generally wear whatever I like the most, within reason. Dior Ambre Nuit, Amouage Reflection Man, Amouage Tribute, Bulgari Black, Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille. Oud-laden attars are potentially a bit much, or so I fear. I'll learn more this winter.
That depends on the occasion.
D600 and Memoir Man are great for upper class events. Romantic occasions? I´d go with Back to Black or Noir de Noir. Formal ones: Reflection Man or Green Irish Tweed.
That are more options: Jubilation XXV, Invasion Barbare, Royal Oud, Lumiére Noire, Pure Malt, etc. You just need to see what´s appropriate for each occasion.
