    Does the petroleum note in Fahrenheit count as weird? If so, that's my choice.

    ETA: Ah, I see you've added a poll. Given your options, I choose nothing. lol

    Maybe the rubber note in Bvlgari Black?

    I also like the salty animalic twang of Oud Ispahan.

    I like Immortelle and Fenugreek, but only in small doses. Eau Noire is a shining example.

    I also like that coppery blood smell in L'Anarchiste

    I feel like this poll is a loaded question, as the notes listed above are not the actual effects of animalic or musky notes (good old "pudeur") in fine fragrance. The question is framed to mischaracterize these sorts of notes, and does no service to understanding the complex compositions that incorporate them.

    ^ agree, seems like a "troll poll".

    I like various oud notes, also civet and castoreum.
    Behemoth cut a slice of pineapple, salted it, peppered it, ate it, and then tossed off a second glass of alcohol so dashingly that everyone applauded.

    Excellent idea - O.P. - how about altering your poll so that members actually vote - please.

    Thank you for your suggestions, but I do not find them either fun or original.

    A very famous designer supposedly said he wanted to recreate a man's crotch.

    Quite a few people I hang out with noticed a very prominent poo note when testing vintage Diorissimo.

    Bye guys, I expected basenotes.net to be more fun.

    Since the first post has been edited out by the O.P. we may as well close the thread.
