    Default Fragrances you don't wear in public

    Do you have any scents that you choose not to wear in public for whatever reason? Perhaps they are too animalic, feminine, or dated and you think other people wouldn't like them.

    Yes, some Carons, L'Heure Bleue or some vintage extraits. They just don't feel right at the moment on me (when going out with them), which says nothing about how much I may enjoy them. L'Heure Bleue e.g. has become more and more a contemplative ME fragrance.

    I'm having trouble picturing situations where I'd think, Dark Aoud would be perfect today, but I will take it public sooner or later.

    Not used to the raunch of Leather Oud, but I've already worn it in public and damn if the honey and other notes in the drydown didn't combine with the smells of baking bread and pastries in my local bakery to transmorph into something stunningly yummy.

    I like to wear some of the old, comforting scents that remind me of being a kid, when I am at home. Blue Stratos, Jovan Musk, Brut for example.

    Some of the stronger powerhouses, some scents with leather and musk notes, too overpowering scents in general.

    Sort of...Back to Black is REALLY powerful on me. Projects like a beast. I'm not opposed to wearing it out in public, I just haven't had the guts to do it yet. My wife really likes it, so if/when I put it on, I usually do it at night when we're staying in.

    Can't say I have any. The scent of any frags I own is to be shared with everyone else (even though everyone else may not agree with them).....Smile

    there's some. like M7 or Ambre Sultan, I would prefer enjoy it all by myself rather than go out and do something (and not enjoy this gem up into the fullest)

    I can think of two at the moment:

    The Third Man / Number 3 / Le 3me Homme by Caron

    and

    Animale Animale for Men by Animal Parfums.


    Both are too strong for my taste, and I feel that one spray of each is more than enough to cover half a block.

    Some have said that Salvador Dali PH shouldn't be worn out, but I've done it. So no, I have nothing I won't wear out.

    Inevitably some will like my scent, others not. Most probably don't even notice.

    Some of my By Killian samples. I like them, but they are just a bit too much for me.

    None! I wear all my masculine and feminine fragrances out without hesitation. I heard someone earlier mention L'Heure Bleue; I wear it out regularly. I am myself and I wear what I like!

    I can feel a little uncomfortable with daring scents, scents that are a bit feminine, etc. But usually I'll say screw it and wear it anyway.
