    Default Re: Matching fragrance with clothes

    For me it’s a complex equation that usually starts with the weather and what mood I’m in. Then I get dressed in clothes that match that mood and wear a scent that either accentuates what I’m feeling or remedies it.

    The big exception is when there’s an event that I have to dress for specifically and then I try to match the scent to what I’m wearing(although I occasionally start with scent and go backwards).

    If you were to wear a turtle neck sweater, would you need a fragrance that made you smell like a prat when you already looked like one?

    If you were to wear a baseball cap with your ears tucked in, would you need a fragrance that made you smell like a bit of a berk when you already stand out as one?

    ...no, so fragrances don't need to match clothes.

    I think there are some scents that will always suit more formal occasions, and past that it is just down to weather and time of day.

    .
    Hmm, not agreeing with you here. See, I believe there are multiple situations, occasions, functions and activities where for example a turtleneck or baseball cap with ears tucked in are not just ok or suitable but also cool

    So, I see no prob with matching clothes and frags., rather find if quite nice and I do aim on reaching that balance, just a private joke for me. Like wearing Kouros and Vaillante Rebellion shirt, The Duke and cowboy boots, pastel t-shirt and espadrillos with Patou pour Homme, Aventus with cigar and open neck collar shirt and suit or the said baseball cap with Old Spice etc.

    I don't even know how that would work.

    But I stand up for the turtleneck. It gets very cold where I am and they're great in wintertime. They also look great under blazers or suede/leather jackets.

    Unless I'm a car burglar, I have moved on from the t-neck. Just depends on how they're worn.

    I think they get a bad rap because of how they're perceived in media. I think of Sprockets from SNL. Or a mom who go a good deal on one at Sears for her kid.

    But I know Steve McQueen looks good in one!

    A cable-knit sweater with a turtleneck is the warmest thing around. And when the lows are many degrees below freezing, trust me, you want that extra warmth.

    Besides, I think combos like this look mighty stylish and not very, um, early 90s-y.

    I agree, although I personally do not wear them (doesn't ever get lower than 50 F where I live).

    If I'm picking clothes according to what I want to wear and fragrance according to what/how I want to smell, aren't they going to match as a result? I mean, maybe not in anyone else's head, but if I were worried about that, I'd call for a vote every time I got dressed.

    yes, just like I do it.

    Also I would like to note that I choose depending on a season. Summer is for Byredo. Winter for Tom Ford. November is also special - it is Kilian
