    It's all in the person's mindset. Don't feel scents would give that impression.

    So, the question is sort of dumb, actually.

    It depends on the batch. If its batch number AU79065 then it's cool.

    In principle, there's nothing that says wearing a certain fragrance couldn't make you come off as snobbish. It's all about scent memory.

    The problem is that fragrances aren't, at least traditionally, segmented by class or attitude. If every snob for some reason used fragrance X and everyone else avoided it, then that scent would probably be associated with snobbishness after a while.

    However, most people wear anything. So the only distinctions that seem to have any broader validity are masculine/feminine (because of historic gender marketing) and old/young (because the style of fragrances have changed over the years). Anything else is either purely personal experience (e.g. "this snob I knew always wore fragrance Y") or pure fabrication.

    I personally find Marc from Robes08 to be a perfect example of a snob. No offence.

Ahhh...the memories..
    Avoiding all the philosophical angles / societial discourse people are taking, RL Polo (at least at one time) would have come closest to being the answer to the question IMO.

    I think that if you're wearing something that was blatantly not created to be a crowd pleaser, by smelling slightly off to the average schmo you're communicating that you're no mainstreamer and you have a more refined nose than others. I'd bet money that this has been JCE's game plan for years now.

    Cut to the chase and just play the game; When I'm heading out to a stuffy affair, I can see reaching for Van Cleef & Arpels ph or Charles Street , all the while eyeing Gendarme.

    Why? If anything he seems to like rather not so great mainstream fragrances, e.g. Calvin Klein, a bit too much. Was just watching his 100 top designer frags video the other day.

    Not trying to sound snobby lol.

    I agree, Marc is very much not a snob. Almost anti-snob. That's why I like him. No pretense, he has 500 bottles and Le Male is his favorite. Suck it up.
