    Default Good scent for an actor?

    I am a young actor looking for a signature scent. I am very interested in how scents give you extra presence in acting circles, and would like one that would express the flamboyance of my profession while also staying masculine. At the moment I use Gendarme (but no one can tell), Bleu de Chanel, Encre Noire (amazing) and the crown jewel vintage M7, which would be an excellent signature scent except that I don't want to use it all up What do you think would be an interesting scent I could adopt, and why?

    Well, it depends on the role ...

    Kouros: macho a la Marlon Brando
    Knize Ten: automotive, butch but aristocratic
    Yatagan: vegetal woody, dark, almost poisonous
    Bandit: s&m

    And this to remain, more or less, in mainstream or regular priced niche. More examples in (much more expensive) niche.

    That deher one isn't even on fragrantica... Hmm it looks like an interesting one to try. Kouros is fantastic as well.

    To me, there is something theatrical about the classic Guerlains, in their exuberance and otherworldliness. I'd try Mouchoir de Monsieur and Habit Rouge.

    Possibly further Creeds, like the flamboyantly beautiful and ingeniously crafted, yet also richly classic: REL or BDP.

    Millesime Imperial should do.

    I would think it depends on the role, right? For example, if your character is supposed to be offensive, villainous, or whatever, then a matching offensive scent would help your fellow actors on stage be naturally repulsed by your presence.
