Thread: Good fragrances for Jury Duty
Apologies for what may be a provincial thread about Jury Duty in the US. I'm not sure how global this type of service is. US citizens can be summoned to serve on juries in civil and criminal cases. The relevant facts for this thread are that you are required to spend up to several days in a large assembly room which is generally not too crowded and may be drafty. Once sent to a courtroom, though, you may find yourself in close proximity to many people you've never seen before and will never see again, in a variety of crowded rooms which may be hot, cold, stuffy, drafty, or anywhere between.
Last time I was on jury duty, Habit Rouge EdT bloomed unpleasantly in a hot and stuffy room and I felt distinctly uncomfortable. Nobody said a word, though.
So, give me your suggestions! You can have fun and make jokes (15 sprays of Rien, Sec Mag, etc., sorry, I just took those two off the table). Good laughs and useful suggestions will be welcomed and appreciated equally.
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.

Depending upon how deliberations go - Almost Innocent by Vive Maria.
Bandit By Robert Piguet.
That should get the bailiff wondering....
Anything light and inoffensive if a scent is to be worn.
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
2 sprays of Chergui.

I forgot what i wore in my recent jury duties (in DC, it's one every 2 1/2 years, plus the federal ones). Not Bandit, though...
Likely something fresh but inoffensive like Sycomore. And in light doses.
Personally I wouldn't wear a fragrance in such an uncomfortable situation because you may have unpleasant memories associated with the scent from your jury duty.
Kinski, Guerlain Homme...
Or something that stays close to the skin and may go well with the seating arrangements, Rocky Mountain Wood.
Something that is a crowd pleaser, but pretty mellow in strength...YSL L'Homme perhaps?
I usually skip wearing a fragrance when I'm going to jury duty. They call me up once every three years, like clockwork! If I were going to wear anything, I'd pick something like Prada, Infusion d'Homme or Mugler Cologne.
If you're bringing a laptop, get there early to score a seat by an outlet! I usually bring a deck of cards or two. People get so bored sitting there all day. Everybody likes playing cards. OK, maybe not everybody... but seriously... time flies when you're having fun, and there's nothing less fun than jury duty.

Something strong so they can send you home.

Just a hint of Musc Ravageur or Bulgari Black. Never know who you might run into. (winks, makes clicking sound through side of mouth)
Based on its name, how about Tubereuse Criminelle?
Escape by Calvin Klein-- for those who would prefer to get out of jury duty.
Anything from Acqua Di Parma. Others will enjoy it too.
Un Crime Exotique.
