    Default Cologne that resembles alcoholic odors?

    Hey guys,

    Are there any colognes that inadvertently make you smell like you've "had too much to drink"?

    I'm curious, tis all.

    Ambre Russe smells like an alcoholic who's been on a 5 day bender.
    My wardrobe is finally up to date as of 12/27/15.

    Strangely, the most alcoholic accord/drydown/base note I ever got from a scent, was Hammam Bouquet by Penhaligons. As unusual as it may seem, the final impression of no other scent was ever perceived with such strong associations of alcoholic fumes/vapors, at least to my nose.

    Bombay Sapphire Infusion.
    Smells like a better version of the gin by the same name.
    The best "fresh Juniper" scent available (yes, better than penhaligons), as well as a godd fresh citrus scent.
