    Default What would you wear to a Kentucky Derby party?

    the obvious choice would be something with a rose note, but not for me.

    I'm thinking something floral and musky like Burberry Touch or Dior Homme INtense

    It's the most famous horse race in the world. It's in Louisville, Kentucky and it's the first Saturday in May. (It's today.) Living in Louisville, I'd say something super classic and refined - maybe Eau Sauvage. Today it's rainy and not very warm, so maybe Bois du Portugal would fit the bill. The smells around you would be horses, bourbon, and mint, and maybe roses depending on where you were, so I wouldn't suggest a fragrance that has any of those notes.

    Something along the lines of Habit Rouge, maybe even (and more extravagantly) Blenheim Bouquet, Floris No. 89 or No.127, Knize Ten.

    Well the obvious choice would be Guerlain's Derby! Lalique Equus and Hermes Equipage would also fit the bill.

    Wealth and class don't always go together.
    I guess you haven't read "The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent And Depraved"
    " Thousands of raving, stumbling drunks, getting angrier and angrier as they lose more
    and more money. By midafternoon they’ll be guzzling mint juleps with both hands and
    vomitting on each other between races."
    "He had done a few good sketches, but so far we hadn’t seen that special kind of face that I
    felt we would need for a lead drawing. It was a face I’d seen a thousand times at every Derby
    I’d ever been to. I saw it, in my head, as the mask of the whiskey gentry–a pretentious mix
    of booze, failed dreams and a terminal identity crisis; the inevitable result of too much
    inbreeding in a closed and ignorant culture."

    I'm going with Mugler Cologne for the same reason. It's early Spring, I wanted something invigorating.

    Well, as martinijo and I were just discussing, there's the race, and then there's the infield. You got your high and your low at The Derby.

    Exactly. Wealth and class (both grotesque concepts) are more represented here as greed and general douche-baggery. So, the tackier the fragrance, the better!

    No matter what you wear, go have some fun!

    In all seriousness, if you can pull off a masculine floral, this time of year is perfect. I'd even like a sharper/more modern/more synthetic feel, like Bond No. 9 Bleecker Street.

    I am heading to a Derby party in five minutes, and I figured every guy there would be wearing Derby, so I chose Invasion Barbare. May the odds be ever in your favor.

    Ridiculous. There is a big difference between the infield and the stands, as has been suggested, but the Derby is one of the classiest sporting events in the world. Also, suggestions of "inbreeding" are insulting. Believe it or not, Louisville is an actual city with beautiful 19th century architecture, and world-class art, especially theatre. We even wear shoes, believe it or not.
