    Default Heavy metal cologne

    I'm a big fan of all kinds of heavy metal. We're not talking about Metallica here (great fragrance, crap band), I mean the good stuff. The heavier the better. Which fragrances come to your mind when you think leather pants, long hair, and head banging?

    Avignon
    Full Insence
    Cardinal
    Sahara Noir
    Messe de Midnuit
    Norne
    Patchouli Leaves
    Oud 27
    A whole bunch of Comme des Garcons

    Any other metal fans here?

    I will always be metal at heart even though all the recent offerings of my favorite bands don't fill my "head" as their older releases.

    Favorite albums :

    - Rust in Peace (Megadeth)
    - Youthanasia (Megadeth)
    - Probot (Dave's ghrol's side project with him on drums )
    - Iconoclast (Symphony X)
    - Awake (Dream theater)
    - Octavarium (Dream theater)
    - A dramatic turn of events (Dream theater)

    Big fan also of Porcupine tree and their drummer, even though those guys are more on the lighter side of metal , but love everything they do...

    Regarding scents, i don't really have a specific scent that reminds me of metal. I pretty much wear anything that has my favorite notes. But it's good idea, maybe i should think of one, just for fun.

    Huge metal lover and musician here. I do think my love for extreme and abrasive things in general plays into my taste for abrasive fragrances. I've always enjoyed riding fast motorcycles and playing metal music. I'm a tamed family man now though, so maybe the extreme fragrances I enjoy just keep me entertained since I don't do the others anymore.

    I prefer my metal (music and perfume wise) a bit more esoteric and edgy (does Death Grips count as a metal band?)

    I agree with those incense scents being a bit 'heavy metal' smelling. I will add one more: vintage No. 88 by Czech & Speake. I always think of this as a 'goth' sort of scent, so perhaps that parallels the imagery of heavy metal. I remember someone saying Ozzy Osbourne wore it.

    Probably anything that's animalistic. Kouros, Acier Aluminum, Black Afgano, etc.

    Cool list tdwctdwc! I'm a big Dream Theatre fan. I always wondered if the basenoter Octavarium took his name from that album, probably not lol.

    First The National, now Death Grips! You're one cool dude MikePerez! I have a hard time putting DG in any genre, but I'd say they're predominantly a hip-hop act. I've tried to get so many people into DG, they just look at me like WTF is this sh!t?!

    I'd heard that about ozzy too, and I've also heard Morissey (not metal, but dark) wears Avignon.

    Ok i guess i'll play along .

    From what i own :

    - Serge Noir
    - Fahrenheit (this one seems more led zeppelenish to me than metal though )

    Big Dream Theater fan. I'm trying to think of scents that would describe something like Scenes From a Memory. Definitely something haunting... incense... maybe Passage D'Enfer. Love their latest album, too - it would be something darker, bolder, but have nuances of light and contrasts. Hmmm. Have to think about that one.

    I was just having some fun! Great thread idea though. I used to be a big metal head and still like it but don't listen to it much these days. That being said in the past year or so I've discovered the industrial/metal band Godflesh and the associated band Jesu. Jesu has really long songs that are very heavy yet very slow and melodic. Really just beautiful stuff. They slay me every time I listen to them.

    Slumberhouse Norne, Norma Kamali Incense & CdG Black evoke thoughts of gothic head banging bands and music.

    I was hoping you'd chime in here Jon! I remember your posts from the "what are you listening to" thread. These bands are more my speed . Amon Amarth are awesome, and Pantera - legends. No word of a lie, I shed a tear when Dime was murdered. What a terrible thing.

    Confused with L'ombre dans L'eau though? Doesn't strike me as "metal". Could you elaborate?

    I've loved Iron Maiden since the 80's. If my life depended on it, I wouldn't be able to connect a perfume with the band though.

    Probably something by Penhaligon's

    Similar to Mike's imagery with No 88. I always sense a foreboding darkness lurking in the background that evokes black metal and the roll-on perfume accentuates the image further.

    Various complications related to diabetes, though decades of raising merry hell could just possibly be part of the equation too. Hope he'll be firing on all cylinders again soon.

    Interesting! I was just thinking they probably all wear Le Male and Armani Code anyways . Niche fragrances seem like the polar opposite of the whole metal/punk/hardcore lifestyle.

    But just for fun, how about these:

    Leather Oud
    Aoud Cuir d'Arabie/Dark Aoud
    Eucris
    Interlude/Memoir/Epic Man
    Carner/Mona Cuir(s)
    Pure Oud
    Tobacco Oud


    Meshuggah
    Deafheaven
    Converge
    Lamb of God
    Between the Buried and Me
    Gojira
    Gaza
    Anaal Nathrakh
    Nails (not NIN, but they rule too!)

    And just FYI everyone, here's the thread that gave the idea.

    I'm thinking Bandit. Black, whip leather, in your face, skin cutting galbanum.

    I'm also thinking the HdP -m trio - metal and mineral. Especially the superdark Petroleum. The rose is more well behaved, but has plenty of metal too. Ambrarem is outright offensive to my nose, marine + pepper + metal is definitely evil.

    Also:
    Ungaro II would be a positively badass choice.
    Tuscan Leather? ....can't argue with that!
    Sombre Negra. Oh yeah. Spray it loud, spray it proud.
    Donna Karan Fuel - dare to show your sensitive side?
    Yatagan! WHAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

    My favorite band that sort of fits this category would be NIN, specifically, Broken. Wish is frigging awesome. My god, that album is over 20 years old and it still sounds current.
