Lubin Idole Edt/Edp
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.
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!
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.

Rocawear Evolution is a nice cheapie that has a huge blast of rum in it.
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.
Idole EDT - it's not a leather scent at all, spiced boozy rum from where I'm sitting.
Haven't tried the EDP.
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).
Profumo.it Cuba Express
With natural absolute of rum. Powerful and fantastic
Straight to Heaven is all rum and probably in my top three scents. Absolutely love it. A real feel good (feel drunk) fragrance.
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.
To a certain extent- A Man Pure Shot and Zino Davidoff
+1 kilian straight to heaven. It has rum in the top note
If you are not averse to chocolate, Guerlain Gourmand Coquin might be worth a try.
Fusion Sacree lui is a pure gem and it gets better the more you wear it!
The whole Guerlain Homme line consists of rum scents.
Try Set Sails South Seas too.

Perfume lovers of the world UNITE!!!!!
1. Straight to Heaven (some patchouli, but this really is a must-try)
2. Lubin Idole EDP (there is a little incense & leather, but it is so dominated by rum you should try it)
3. Virgin Island Water
4. Guerlain Homme Intense
Another nod towards Guerlain Homme Intense
Lubin Idole EDP to die for period
Paul Smith London smells like coconut rum to me. Delightful and rich scent.
Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.
My favorite right now is Gold Leather by Atelier Cologne. Rum, leather, Oud. Beauty!
Frapin Speakeasy is my favorite rum scent!
Straight to Heaven by Kilian is amazing. Patchouli isn't overpowering at all, very clean.
