    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.

    Eau de ABC is f***ing garbage I can't believe they can't put together a decent f***ing stream of the Oscars this is complete and utter bulls**t how embarrassing.

    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.

    And in other news, Kanye West is the greatest artist who has ever lived...... according to... Kanye West.

    So I guess yes, there is another even more self celebratory industry, one in which you don't even need talent, just good auto-tune recording studio.

    I confess: I first read this thread as "What would YOU wear to the Oscars," and I was about to reply "condoms." But then I re-read the question. And that would be a vulgar answer, you know.

    The scent I'd wear would be Creed Vintage Tabarome. It's my all-time favorite power biz scent.

    Some BNers would probably call that vulgar, too.

    Well, let's face it. The Oscars have a certain bad taste reputation. OTT is considered normal in that environment. Why fight it?
