    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......

    The Baron and Midnight in Paris. The latter had my relatives asking why my room smelled like 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.

    If you don't mind a flowery scent, you are looking for Kenzo Power (original, not cologne).
