    Default What would James Bond wear?

    Being a big fan of the Bond films and books I am intrigued to hear what people think.

    Somewhere there was mention of Floris No.89, I have never tried that myself.

    I will use Sean Connery's Bond as the film example as he is most likely the best known (you don't have to pick something that was available during that time-frame, it can be anything from any time).

    I would see him as using something like Silver Mountain Water or Eau Sauvage by day, and then perhaps something darker like Tuscan Leather or Aramis in the evenings.

    This was already done though. Do a search and you will see this exact same topic pop up.

    Well, he said himself that he uses Tobacco Vanille in the set.

    Aventus would be his choice. Picture him wearing it at the casino.

    Q would arrange for James Bond to wear a contemporary masculine powerhouse, none other than Aventus I imagine. Would probably be in a 30ml bottle and would be included in a traveller grooming set.

    Pierce Brosnan has been quoted as wearing Green Irish Tweed in his personal time. That wouldn't be a bad choice for the Bond character either.

    Yes have to agree! James Bond woud never buy his own cologne but he might spritz something thats placed in his kit for him.

    Floris No. 89, correctly mentioned in the initial post, still sounds quite appropriate as high signature fragrance, other than that, perhaps Habit Rouge (rumored to be one of the signature fragrances of Sean Connery, unless it is just Creed-style marketing, during the 1960 s).

    He did in fact wear Eucris in Diamonds Are Forever. Great fit for Connery's bond, both the fragrance itself and the fact that it's a Trumper's from the beginning of the 20th century. I must say that I find the Dior Homme line to be really bad fit for either Connery or Craig. Modern androgynous fragrance for Bond is just an idea I don't get.

    I know Sean Connery was 007 at one point and I remember reading that Sean wears Habit Rouge so I'm going with Habit Rouge.
    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    I would imagine he would wear something close to the skin with low projection so he can sneak up on people without them knowing. Maybe Gendarme or Molecule 1.

    007 would wear something classic, timeless, and not too loud. My vote goes to Habit Rouge.

    I'm not entirely convinced he would bother, to be honest.
