    Chanel Eau de Cologne. Those people are sardine-canned in there and it gets mighty hot in that tux. Not the setting for, say, a patchouli bomb, in my view.

    Aventus...that way I'll at least smell like a winner


    My go to special occasion fragrance is Jubilation XXV, but for the Oscars, I'd probably wear something a little like Vetiver Extraordinaire.
