Thread: 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!
Thanks in advance.

Straight to Heaven by Kilian is a good one.
Sugary rum over patchouli and cedar.
Do a search for 'bay rum'. There are dozens...
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.
on the cheap side spark seduction and casran by choprad
If I remember correctly, you're a vanilla fan as well? Have you tried Mona di Orio Vanille? Rum, vanilla, and spices. Good stuff.
Guerlain Homme Intense. Rum, Rhubarb, Lime and Vetiver.
Botrytis from Ginestet
I'd like to swap:
Tauer - Lonestar memories
Guerlain - Jicky EdT
virgin island water
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.
+1 Virgin Island Water
Serge Lutens Chene
Speakeasy by Frapin....the first 20-30 minutes are a bit rough but once it start drying down HOLY rum, beautiful.
MPG Eau des Isles & L'Artisan Eau de Navegateur (closely related)
C. O. Bigelow Bay Rum
Ogallala Bay Rum Sage & Cedar (& Limes and Peppercorns)

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!
