    I get a strong talcum powder sensation from Jovan Musk, followed by the whole Dior Homme lineup (including flankers).

    If you mean talcum powder as a synonim for powdery, here is very enlightning thread on what it means, perfumes with a marked powdery feeling and raw materials contributing to it: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/213...-what-are-they

    IMHO, I had the feeling that these categories and scent give way to the feeling you are asking about:

    1. Aromatic fougeres of the kind described as "barbershop scents" by Americans, from the least expensive to the most: Pinaud's Clubman, Dana's Canoé, Avon's Wild Country, YSL's Rive Gauche. Cons: many associate these with "Grandpa's scents" mainly due to the fact these belong to a style that was quite popular decades ago.

    2. Men's florals: Amouage's Gold, Caswell Masey's Jockey Club, Royal Copenhagen, The Baron. Cons: Floral notes are quite bold at first.

    3. Spicy / orientals: Penhaligon's Hammam Bouquet, Guerlain's Habit Rouge, Fragonard's Zizanie, Dana's British Sterling. Cons: Same as # 1.

    4. Femenine ones: Molinard's Habanita, Guerlain's Mitsouko, Guerlain's Shalimar.

    Scents I used and were described as "you smell like talcum powder", however, I did not share the opinion: Aramis JHL, Estee Lauder's Youth Dew, YSL's Jazz, Azzaro pour Homme, VC&A.

    As to niche, my experience with these is rather limited.

    My favourite powdery scents are Habit Rouge (EDP) and HdP 1725 Cassanova. They smell powdery, but not quite the same as J&J baby powder......

    Most powdery scent I've come across is Royal Copenhagen (you may as well be pouring talcum powder over yourself), closely followed by Lagerfeld Classic and Lagerfeld Jako.

    Hmm - many of the above-mentioned perfumes certainly have a powdery component, but I don't find that overall they smell like talcum powder.

    That one that comes the closest of any I know is Flower by Kenzo. I loved this stuff - bought it for my wife before I got all into perfumes and haven't sniffed it in a while. I don't know if I'd still recommend it ... need to try it again.
