    Default Fragrances that can suck the oxygen out of a room

    There are some fragrances so strong that they can suck all the oxygen out of a room.

    I'll start with three. And I'm sure there are many others:
    • A*Men (even though it's my all-time favorite... moderation, please)
    • Kouros
    • Polo Green
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    Aventus, if not sprayed responsibly.

    A Men is definitely intense and I love it, but it does not hold a candle to Joop! Homme in terms of projection and longevity. Nothing, and I mean nothing, will choke someone out easier.

    Santal 33 will take over a room if oversprayed. I know from experience.

    Wings by Giorgio Beverly Hills... this stuff transforms oxygen molecules into toxic levels of lavender instantly.

    Definitely one of the most suffocating fragrances from my collection.
    The Dreamer from Versace: what does this scent have that is so alluring and enticing towards the opposite sex ?

    Guess I better rethink that opinion.

    As far as Montales go, Blue Amber would be the one I would name.

    I've never felt that (I mean fragrances that suck oxigen), but it might be disturbing for one to walk in my room right after I sprayed some Kouros.
