    Default Best Casino scent

    Just that really. Going to a casino for a friends birthday next month. What would you wear? What should I wear? I want to go with a niche fragrance because I want to be unique among my friends (none of whom have the first clue about the existence of niche fragrances).

    Feel free to either go with something from my wardrobe, or something I don't own yet. I'm just about ready to pick a new fragrance up anyway. Unless you lot change my mind, I was planning on my next purchase being Tobacco Vanille (even before I knew about this gig). Think that would fit the bill? Or maybe something else?

    Just a heads up for overseas guys - one thing I won't have to worry about is trying to overpower the smell of cigarette smoke as thankfully smoking indoors is banned here in the UK. Of my current wardrobe, i'd lean towards Pure Malt I think. Not niche, I know - but not something most average Joe's will have in their arsenal either.

    The floor is yours, gentlemen....

    Molecule 01 is understated and Ghost like, sneaks in and out. Will trail you and leave people wanting more, but will seem invisible to those closest to you after a moments exposure.

    Tuscan Leather is a bad-A scent any way you look at it (or smell at it!)

    Encre Noire seems like something a high roller would wear or smell like

    GOOD LUCK choosing and playing!!

    Ah yes, slight issue there - I (perhaps foolishly in hindsight) gave a friend of mine a sample of STH after I bought a bottle as I didn't need it anymore. He's pretty enamoured with it and is almost certainly going to be wearing that. I don't think he actually owns anything else!

    So really, I need something that's going to outshine STH! One of the other guys ALWAYS wears Le Male, so I could do with something that's going to compete with such a beast too.

    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    Puredistance M is so damn confident and sexy even the croupier will have difficulties concentrating on the game. Horribly expensive though.
    Cuir Fauve from Keiko Mecheri's Bespoke-line is another (crazy expensive but) gourgeous scent.
    Molecule 01 or Molecule 02 are more quiet but not less mezmerising options. (And less expensive )

    Molecule 01 is not understated its just overpriced ISO super E. Thats all you get. You can make tons of it yourself for a fraction of the price.

    aventus is a cologne of great prestige and power, and with great power comes great responsibility. this is not for the average hands of the timid and weak. this is only for the anointed and incorruptable.
