    Default Your favorite boozy scent

    The perfume has to have an alcohol note in it.

    I like Straight to Heaven by Kilian.

    Idole de Lubin -- very smooth and light, yet lasts 8+ hours in all seasons

    Frapin L'Humaniste -- cold, refreshing, light gin tonic

    Bentley Intense for Men does the boozy part for me.

    Pure Havane also has a bit boozy opening note which I don't mind. Pure Malt has a lot more booze going on for it, but I don't care for that one. Feels more like something you'd do shots with, not spray on yourself.

    I like rum note in Frapin Speakeasy the best, but I also enjoy the mojito in Guerlain Homme , the malt whiskey in Pure Malt, and the gin and tonic notes in Bond 9 Brooklyn.

    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    Lubin - Idole EDP and EDT
    Guerlain - Homme Intense
    Mugler - Pure Malt

    I also get a boozy vibe from my Creed Virgin Island water - the coconut and lime reminds me of a summer cocktail.
