    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.

    EDIT: Never mind, this is a fragrance with a big leather note, which is simply a NO for me! Thanks anyway.

    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.

    If I remember correctly, you're a vanilla fan as well? Have you tried Mona di Orio Vanille? Rum, vanilla, and spices. Good stuff.

    Joop Homme Wild is an extremely good rum scent, though it took a while to grow on me as was wanting something more Joop like.

    Ah man, just noticed you mentioned you didn't want a patch fragrance! lol

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

    Looks like the EDT is preferred by most of the BN crowd.

    Joop! Homme Wild - sweet rum and tobacco, actually quite lovely and seems to be quite a hit with the fairer sex too.
    Smelling good on a budget!
