    Default What fragrances are popular in your country right now?

    I'm just curious to hear what Basenoters from all over the globe have to say about this.

    I smell Bleu De Chanel everywhere I go. Everywhere. I. Go.

    I tested the sample I got from Nordstroms last night actually, and found it off putting. No matter how much I test it, I just can't like it. I'm hoping the EDP version coming out in the next month will be better to me.

    I'm with you on that. I blind bought a small bottle and while I don't necessarily regret it, I don't really "get it" either. I'll wear it every once in a while because of how much love it seems to get elsewhere (I'm wearing it today actually) and think maybe I'm just missing something....but am always a bit disappointed. It's not bad, but it's not great.

    On topic: I work in oil and gas and smell a ton of Stetson...

    1 Million, its flankers and knock offs: ubiquitous beyond tolerance.

    Here in Puerto Rico, the most common men fragrances as of now would be:

    1. Bleu de Chanel (a lot of clients and co-coworkers wear this)
    2. ADG - Also very very popular here, even more so in the ages of 40 and up
    3. YSL L'homme - Very popular work scent here and I believe is very appropriate for our weather
    4. One Million - Lots of people are wearing this, but I can't really figure out how these men are wearing this in 95-100 degree weather.

    In my neck of the woods different versions of Boss, AdG, Allure Homme Sport and LeMale seem quite common. I think I also saw Ferrari and 1 Million at some top ten list short while ago.

    For me.. in Florida. I typically smell AdG, and Cool Water on people. Every now and then I smell La Nuit, or 1 Million. Other than that.. those are the only really recognizable fragrances to me, this is just from people walking by, picking up their sillage. I have definitley smelled lots of other stuff, more so citrus typed, and aquatics, but not so instantly recognizable.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Not sure how to speak for the entire USA, lol...

    For example, fragrances are much more common in NYC, then they are, say.. in Central NJ. Whenever I go to New York I notice A LOT of people wearing something nice. You are also more likely to get complimented on your fragrances in the city as opposed to the rural areas where not too many people care about scents.

    To answer your question more specifically, I did notice a lot of people wearing Terre lately.

    That's a good point. I know different parts of the states might as well be different countries.

    I think a lot of guys just don't know any better. I wore Polo almost every day for almost 6 years before I accidentally found this website

    Brazilians love themselves some 1 Million and Carolina Herrera 212! (alone with other sweet concoctions, to be honest).

    A unique one that I can't get away from (here specifically, since your question seems to be fishing for regional distinctions) is the original or flankers of MALBEC, by the Boticário brand. It supposedly contains real grape must essence of the famed Argentine varietal. That sounds disgusting... but it's really quite nice and wickedly projecting, long lasting stuff. I'm just so sick of it. My dad now doesn't welcome me home unless I return to the states with at least one bottle of the stuff per year.

    Oud Ispahan

    SoOud Nur

    You can smell these three almost everywhere. At my work maybe 7-8 co-workers wear Oud Ispahan and Black Afgano. That is why I sold my Black Afgano bottle. lol

    Also in the Midwest of the USA, and honestly....I don't smell a lot of fragrances. Period. Unless I'm at the mall or in a club. But just going about life in general, it is somewhat rare that I smell a fragrance, either on a man or a woman. But usually when you do smell fragrances, for whatever reason, it's generally the typical "young" (sweet) type scents like 1 Million, Le Male, Acqua di Gio (smell that one quite a bit, actually), La Nuit de L'Homme, A&F Fierce (see Acqua di Gio - LOL), etc. on the younger guys. Sorry, but I don't know women's scents well enough to notice which ones those are when I smell them.

    Ha. Its a funny One. Always prefer the smell of it on others to on myself so quite happy it seems so ubiquitous!

    They are in London. I've smelled everything from Creed to Penhaligon's on people who were simply walking down the street.

    THIS. Bleu and YSL L'homme - but especially Bleu. It seems like all of a sudden, I'm smelling these two more than everything else combined.

    I used to smell AdG all the time, and occasionally I still do, but it isn't everywhere the way it was even just a few years ago.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you consider a "classy" scent? And does your current collection consist of? I've noticed that you don't have anything currently listed in your wardrobe.

    That was mostly just a joke on my part. Bleu de Chanel is a fine fragrance. Not my personal favorite, but I think it smells much nicer on others than it does on me.

    And I have no idea what you're referring to with the wardrobe thing?
