Thread: What is your Signature Scent?
What is the one fragrance that personifies who you are? That one scent that if you could only save one bottle, that would be the bottle you reach for? Is it possible to have only one signature scent? Or can you have a different signature scent for each season?

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

If it was up to my wife, I would wear nothing but Kouros.
But, as I have a bit of a say in things I reckon I have 4 or 5 absolute 'would never, ever be without' scents.
Aramis 900, Antaeus, Kouros, HdP 1740 and Encre Noir.
"...her fragrance all in my keeping; softly she comes in the night." Lyrics, Gordon Lightfoot, "Softly."
Every bottle I own - variety is the spice of life. I have never had a signature scent or the desire for one.
Dior Homme Intense. I wear a lot of scents, but I find myself wearing this more than any other. I even regret not wearing it when I have something else on. But thats just me lol, to each its own.
Aventus and Dior Homme Intense for me.
Hermes Equipage comes closest to being a signature scent for me. Like everyone else, I wear a lot of different frags, but I like to think that Equipage best exemplifies what I think I am all about.

I Wear My Scents To The Seasons Winter Spring Summer & Fall I Have Them Set To Casual,Work,Date or Clubbing For Each Season. Am I The Only One Who Does This?
I never had a signature scent until I discovered Silver Mountain Water by CREED. For the last year, if there was one fragrance I would choose above the rest, its SMW.
Not one, but Sables definately personifies how persistant and or obnoxious I can be. As obnoxious as ten sprays of Sables for someone who loathes immortelle.What is the one fragrance that personifies who you are?
That would be vintage Je Reviens even though I don't wear it simply for the memories.That one scent that if you could only save one bottle, that would be the bottle you reach for?
Traditionally I think this is what a signature scent is.Is it possible to have only one signature scent?
I don't know any country where you would be arrested for it, so why not?Or can you have a different signature scent for each season?
If one were to ask my friends about me and perfume and what I like they would undoubtedly mention vintage Worth Pour Homme, Givenchy Gentleman (although the older I get the more I reach for Monsieur Worth over this) and Sables. I guess these are as close to a signature as I have.
I have over 100 choices in the morning. How can I call anything a signature scent? Signature scent and favourite scent may not be the same thing.
If you wear the same scent 99% of the time, which I guess is what you would define as a "signature scent" then this forum is probably not the best place for you. I love trying different frags and continually discovering new experiences to delight my nose.
My worst nightmare would be having to wear the same fragrance every day for the rest of my life. However much I loved it...
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
My all time favorite and signature scent has been the vintage D&G PH. These are the scents that my woman, family and friends know that if they smell it in the air, i must be near.
But i have many many more fragrances that i wear. My other currents faves are DH, DHI, t'dh, v'dh, oud by mfk...etc
If we're going by the amount of times I've worn it then Fahrenheit.
Some day's you're the statue and some days you're the pigeon.
Couldn't ever just have one, but if I had to, I think the ones that would compete best as a signature for me would be GPH II, Creed SMW, Creed GIT, LIDGE, & TDH Parfum.
I don't have one. But, the only fragrance that I've been wearing more than once a week is my vintage...
The closest I have right now would be Mont Blanc Legend, but I reserve the right to change that on any given day

If someone does choose to wear a single fragrance nearly all of the time, then good for them. I'd be happy to read their thoughts here as long as they have something worthwhile to say.
I have a signature scent. I don't wear it 99% of the time - that's not how I define having a signature scent. I love trying new perfumes, but I can see myself wearing a single one nearly all the time for periods.
If having a signature scent is your worst nightmare, then I would say you don't have a very active imagination.

At present I don't have, but Azzaro Chrome used to be my signature scent sometime...
I joined Basenotes to find a signature scent, "me in a bottle". I found it a futile exercise. I'm too complex, with too many changes of mood. Hence, according to my wife, I have way too many bottles and still want more.
Now if you think signatures means scents that made you go "Wow I have to have that", that narrows things down to 8 that I have and about another 8 I want.
I could get it down to 1, a desert island frag, but I would be choosing something that worked well anytime, not my absolute favourite for whatever mood I'm in.
I too have far more something of a "signature rotation" (consisting mainly of my current wardrobe, not just the "own" but also the "test" department), rather than one specific signature scent.
TdH is the one I call my signature scent. But with me owning so many other scents now, I am using it less and less.
once Jules by dior..now Eau savage Extreme!
