    Default Which fragrances make you FEEL rich and powerful?

    I realize the answer is totally subjective but figured it might be a fun topic. I've edited this to make it a little more fun. Match a personality to the scent for increased visual effect.
    In no particular order:

    Tom Ford Oud Wood - Gordon Gekko
    Creed Aventus - JR Ewing
    Creed Bois du Portugal - Victor Newman

    Looking forward to some interesting replies, the more descriptive the better!

    Cartier Santos Concentree makes me feel uber-masculine. I feel like I can rip off my tie and choke out a rhino while wearing it.

    I rate 1818 by Brooks Brothers.

    That stuff smells like 1980s capitalistic excess to me, and although it's great under a collar, tie and braces, it also works well under a warm winter sweater.

    To me, those 3 just smell like somebody cashed in on a large inheritance.

    Honorable mention: Fahrenheit... Makes me want to drive a late 80's model Porsche with a white suit, pastel t-shirt and some penny loafers with no socks.

    Neat topic! And wow, three people so far say Aventus. Interesting! I don't get that at all from Aventus. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoy it. In fact, I enjoy it so much I have a 4oz bottle being shipped as we speak... but (reaches for sample... Fffhhhhhhh... Mmmmmmmm...) I don't smell rich and powerful in there at all. I smell optimism and vitality. And there's something happy about it. But I sure don't smell wealth or power. I love it though! Just goes to show how we all perceive things differently.

    Rich and powerful to me:
    - Gucci Pour Homme I (not II. Oh, definitely not II, though I love II!)
    - Terre D'Hermes (more powerful than rich I suppose)
    - Eau Sauvage (I don't know why it smells like money to me, but it does)
    - Bvlgari Man (rich, powerful and a case of B.O. Nobody tells you you've got B.O. when you're rich!)
    - Cool Water (getting rich by not buying GIT! Cha-ching!)
    - Chanel Bleu (rich, not powerful, and not rich in a good way. It smells like spending money for the sake of money)

    Oh, I don't think so at all. Money has a great smell. It's quite unique. I enjoy it.

    Quote Originally Posted by topnotchtennis View Post

    Y'know... I may need to take back my previous comment. I'm starting to think it does. It smells very green to me, as in the color green, but not a bright green. I smell the same gray/green color of American money (keeping in mind my sample is the K04 smokey batch). And maybe it does smell like paper. That sure would be the smell of money. I stand corrected for sure. I do smell it now.

    Eau Sauvage, on the other hand, smells like an American Express card on an expense account. It smells powerful because it smells like someone else's money. It smells like the beginning of a day of enjoying someone else's money.

    No scent can do this for me, but I had the feelin that a fragrance speaks of wealth and a more careless life in terms of money with these few: vintage New York (the new version smells like loss of assets, though), Jubilation XXV, APOM pour Homme.

    Aventus smells like the ultimate new money fragrance to me. Something "blingy" but not very cultured.

    There are plenty of retro fragrances that smell like money and power, in a stereotypical kind of way. I wouldn't feel genuine wearing them.

    I guess Terre d'Hermes would be my choice.

    Knize Ten
    Versace l'Homme

    Both make me feel like a yesteryear millionaire in some luxurious boardroom.

    Sorry if I sound closed minded, but I don't think any fragrance, niche or designer, that makes me feel rich or powerful. Status is something your personality projects, not your clothing, sports car or cologne.
