    Freud - Tuscan Leather 'cause of his affinity for the smell of cocaine.
    Jung - Avignon 'cause it smells like church and would remind him: Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit.

    How about you?

    According to Creed, their Selection Verte was created in 1901 and was worn by Sigmund Freud.

    Of course, such stories are amusing, but pure poppycock.

    Freud- Knize Ten, as this fragrance manages to combine quite successfully both the swagger of Old School Viennese gentlemanliness with a hint of sweat, sensuality, brooding mystery almost bordering on the subconscious, even the unconscious, but also fascinating and slightly menacing dark edginess

    Jung- unaware if any designer or niche Swiss house existed contemporary to him or even if not Swiss had a decisive presence in most places he lived so that he could have had ready access to it and thus find his signature scent

    So far, everything I've tried by Creed turns my stomach. I wonder what Freud would have said about that?

    That's interesting! Is that definitely untrue?

    Creed's claim of perfume making going back centuries has been widely discussed on these boards over the years. But their claims of making fragrances for kings, queens, and famous movie stars, politicians, etc. has never been substantiated.

    What HAS been substantiated is only that the family was in the tailoring business many moons ago. I guess it's possible that they could have made a (bespoke) fragrance upon request from one of their tailoring customers way back when, but there has never been any evidence of them providing fragrances to the public until the early 1970's; certainly not to kings in the 1700's.

    So Creed's history appears to have simply been made up for general enjoyment and marketing purposes. But their fallacies have accomplished exactly what they hoped they would. They have sold TONS of their fragrances over the past few decades.....mainly beginning in the 1980's. There's no doubt that their claims of kings, queens, John F. Kennedy, Humphrey Bogart and Marlene Dietrich wearing their scents have enticed thousands into buying their wares. So their marketing has worked like a charm.

    How do we know it's all poppycock? Because there's no evidence of any older Creed bottles before the early 1970's. If such evidence existed prior, you can bet one of our fine Basenoters out on a mission would have discovered it by now. We see evidence of perfume bottles from the 1950's and 1960's all the time on eBay. They aren't hard to find. So isn't it something that no Creed artifacts have ever been seen from those decades (or earlier) if they have truly been around so long?

    Here's an interesting thread from several years ago that touches on all this.....

    Sigmund Freud : Dior Homme.

    Many have mentioned in reviews that it smells like a ladies handbag. Lipstick as well from the iris. Mother, is that you ?

    Carl Jung : Chanel Pour Monsieur.

    What fragrance captures the psyche and the soul of a man ? Surely this classic masculine. Many others could be chosen as well.

    ( Im mostly familiar with Mens fragrances, hence the suggestions. May add some more later)
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !

    Good suggestions! I was trying to think of a fragrance that might conjure up something to do with Freud's mother fixation but I came up empty.

    For Jung, I am thinking something more feminine... perhaps he has selected a fragrance with his anima in mind?

    Maybe Myths Woman by Amouage.

    Sigmund Freud due to his interest in hysteria - Creed Aventus

    Jung tried his best to keep an open mind and look at all possibilities and evidence and in this way was actually more scientific than the majority of academics who only allow the very orthodox views to be considered - and given his interest in Dream as a path to therapy

    My mistake, I had BF Skinner in mind. I disagree with some of his practices and conclusions. We're as clean and unconditioned like alcohol. Then Programned. That's what he gets. 70% isopropyl, 30% water.

    As for Jung... Chanel Sycomore - Deep, complex, bright.
