Thread: Smoothest scent you own
I will let you determine what you deem smooth. Pick a scent. I'm curious how folks will answer this.
my choice is vintage Dior Homme EDT btw
Pierre Cardin Iris Sauvage.
Armani Privé Ambre Orient.
Amber and vanilla. Two of the smoothest notes I can think of,
Im a Creed kind of guy....
BUT Uhmmmmm, I digress; Tom Ford Oud Wood is the smoothest fragrance probably ever... IMO. Yes, I own this too although I rarely ever wear it depite mine being 250ml bottle, and maybe only used it six-times in 10months.
I haven't really given it much thought, but LiquidNight by A Lab On Fire has got to be one.
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie
Slumberhouse Ore, Mona di Orio Oud & Arabian Oud's Kalemat. Guerlain's Rose Nacree might soon join the list, once I get a few more full wearing's...
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
Creeds Royal OUD....IMHO (Master piece) also MIP EDP
"Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "

Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
In my opinion, Creed's 1849 Millesime is the smoothest scent I currently own. Second would be Musc Ravageur.
But it's hard to disagree with Royal Oud & CC1. I define smooth as a fragrance that easily evolves from top to heart to base.
Slumberhouse Pear & Olive. So smooth it's slippery.
Jil Sander Man
Tough to pick just one, but Ambre Precieux comes to mind. Also Ore as well.
Vince Camuto, Pleasures, Fahrenheit
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Back to Black by Killian
To me, smoothness means there exists a fluid transitioning from top to mid to base notes. A smooth scent can be composed of any and any notes as long as they are well blended, rounded, and a tad powdery.
My choice would be Cuir de Lancôme.
Gucci Pour Homme II
Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
GIT...amazing linear journey

Prada Man (Amber) very smooth.
Boss Elements Aqua mayhaps even smoother.
Rochas Man, albeit sweet gourmand, quite smooth.

I dont really have anything genuinely smooth, not like Egoiste or Coromandel. Egoiste is the definition of smooth for me.
The smoothest I own is probably between Armani PH, Body Kouros or Pure Havane. See, so far I don't do smooth!

Without a doubt : Narciso Rodriguez Musc for him.
The way the musk and iris take turns on the skin is simply heavenly and brilliant.
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Ambre 114 & LIDGE are the most smoothest in my collection.
OFF SITE SALES, DECANTS ---Dior,Chanel MFK, MOLECULE 01* VINTAGE ANTAEUS*
+1 for Dior Homme (this one is extremely smooth for me...only in the dry down...the iris is rather sharp on top.)
I would add Diptyque Boulevard Saint Germaine, Chanel 31 Rue de Cambon and L'Occitane Eau de Baux from my collection. I think all four fragrances are equally silky smooth in "fragrance texture."
MPG Santal Noble is certainly one of the smoothest in my collection.
Another one for me is
Safran Troublant by L'Artisan
Another vote for Dior Homme here,
Vera Wang for Men
Tom Ford's Noir de Noir is the smoothest thing I have in my opinion, but I prefer scents with a little harshness.
L' Artisan's Vanille Absolument. Now that's smooth!
Chanel Coromandel +1
Chanel Cuir De Russie Edt
I have to add Chergui now to the list. I haven't wore this in some time and forgot its charm.
Gaultier^2 , very smooth, with the boozy amber musk and vanilla
Sorry -- I'm struggling with 'smooth' as opposed to harsh?
