    Lightbulb That perfect fragrance to wear while writing an essay!...

    Something that evokes a feeling of melancholy, It need not be too strong. As a matter of fact, I need something light please. Thanks!

    From your wardrobe I'd go with Bulgari Black.


    But if you're looking for something new, I think Narciso Rodriguez for Him fits the bill. It's melancholy and on the lighter side.

    HDP Hemingway or Narciso Rodriguez are excellent suggestions.

    I know it's not melancholy, but mint typically stimulates the mind, and when I taught, I would let my students chew peppermint gum or candies while they were taking a test. Perhaps if you needed some mental stimulation while writing, you could try Menthe Fraiche or Geranium Pour Monsieur.

    I shall look into this one! The essay is on Edgar Allen Poe.

    Wear nothing while writing. In the back of your mind, be thinking, or smelling that special fragrance. Grab inspiration of the great beat writers , they didn't do such imaginative , wonderful work because their lives were perfect. They longed for something. Long for that perfect scent, while you write. Reach, and create.

    None. When I'm writing I want none of my senses being worked or distracted. Same with reading. I put on my shooting muffs, baseball cap pulled low, no fragrance, no nodda. I'm in my head for better or worse.

    Melancholy? You say you want melancholy? Oh have I got melancholy for you! In fact, I'll give you two. One is affordable and the other is ridiculously luxurious. Both are superb.

    - Narcisso Rodriguez for him.
    - Memoir Man by Amouage.

    OK, I must confess, Memoir isn't light, but it's really magical stuff, and Parfums Raffy online sells 2.5ml carded samples at a great price. Highly recommended!!!

    Interesting! For me, it depends on what I'm writing. If I'm working on anything creative, I love to go a little overboard with something that mentally removes me from my surroundings. Gucci Pour Homme. Interlude Man. Lonestar Memories! Oof! That stuff takes me somewhere alright. H.O.T. Always by Bond. Ooh, or KOUROS!!!

    Can only speak for myself, would thus only partly recommend it as an advice. Whenever I have to write an essay or anything more non-fictional and/or specialized on a certain very precise topic or sometimes just when having to fill out certain forms, documents etc., I usually go for a cooling, more discreet and often fresher scent.

    Thus, the likeliest choices from my wardrobe are: Guy Laroche Horizon, Very Valentino PH, Kenzo PH.
