    Default Rum based fragrances

    The smell of sugary rum is to die for. Are there any fragrances based on the note of rum out there? The ones I've tried are: Vanille Absolument (love) and Frapin 1270 (also love) and that's about it. Suggest me all of the rum scents you know of! No incense, patch or leathers, please!

    Yalla!

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are not looking not to drop a ton of $$$ for a rum based scent then try Lacoste pour homme; not bad actually. But you could do a lot better on the niche side if your willing to spend a few extra dollars.

    For me personally, rum, sandalwood, and sugar cane were the top three prominent notes. I didn't really detect leather but I have some strong leather fragrances in my collection so I could be missing it. This is the edt by the way.

    The only other one I can think of would be Sequoia.... Has a bit of rum in the top and mid.

    Mona di Orio Vanille think of an orange creamsicle with rum in it. So basically vanilla, orange and rum. Good juice wish I had of purchased a bottle with the price was a humble $170 rather than the ridiculously $230.

    I haven't detected ANY leather in my Lubin EDT. It's just an insanely sexy, spicy rum fragrance with a longevity and projection well above what I thought myself. A friend smelled it on me from three meters away (7 feet?), and detected it on me after a good night of sleep (I came in to work at 2145, he smelled it and commented on the greatness of it, and commented again the next day at 0700). I applied it at ... oh ... 2030 or so. So longevity and projection is great on me, at least, even though I can't detect it for very long.

    All in all, try it out. It's damn good, and as said - leather? Not in my book.

    If you like vetiver, you might like Helan's Vetiver & Rum. I find the combination super comforting and cheerful.

    If you don't mind spices with your rum, you might like Pinaud's Virgin Island Bay Rum. This stuff is ridiculously good and dirt cheap (about $1/ounce).

    We have L'Artisan Parfumeurs Havana Vanille ( or the boring name Vanille Absolue ) and Frapin 1270, which I think the very great rum scents. Another rum, that I really love now, is Majda Bakkali Fusion Sacree for Him. Maybe the best rum that I've ever tasted. You MUST try FS if you want a better and special rum scent.
