    Default Presidential Scents

    John F. Kennedy used to wear Creed Vetiver. Sarkozy from France had a specially crafted fragrance for him from the house of Guerlain.

    I'm curious. What is a fragrance that a world leader or politician would wear?

    Something that screams class and authority and commands power I guess.

    So what do you imagine is a scent worthy of a world leader?

    Lol Obama wearing Brut?

    Hmmm...I'd expect something a little more current from someone as famous as he is. I'm not hating on Brut or anything, but when his predecessors have worn some refined stuff, I'd expect him to step up his game.

    They're too baggy. He needs to slim it all down. They're 2 sizes too big.

    Can anyone tell me which version of Gendarme is the best? Apparently there's an EDP, cologne spray, and an eau de cologne. Also, what's the difference between a "cologne spray" and an "eau de cologne"? I know EdC is supposed to be a light concentration of the scent, the same amount found in an aftershave, but what is a cologne spray specifically?

    Gendarme is one of my favorite scents. The EDP is the same as the original in terms of smell but it's more concentrated. You can easily smell the EDP 8 hours after application where the EDC is gone after the 4-6 hour mark. It's one of the cleanest fragrances on the market.

    YES! Terribly tailored and look as though they completely lack structure. Not how I’d prefer to be represented internationally—though, I digress haha.
