    Depends on the club. I would say something like Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather or Noir De Noir.

    Tuscan Leather smells like an ash tray. It's definitely isn't a mass appealing scent, something one might want, when going clubbing

    People ask variations of this question on here a lot and I honestly have *no* idea what as to what the criteria of a good "clubbing" fragrance would be.

    I suppose you'd want something that would be kinda sexy and strong enough to be detectable in a crowded space over many hours of exertion, but without being so overwhelming and toxic that nobody can stand near you?

    To you maybe. To others it smells like cocaine, others a new car interior, to others straight up leather.
    It’s popular (in pop culture too), I suspect that alone will have appeal that the OP is looking for.

    Best Clubbing fragrance is basically code for “best panty dropper”.

    Was actually looking for something fun and playful not a “panty dropper” I’m gay.

    Black Orchid or Champaca Absolute; Neroli Portofino for something fresh.

    It comes down to whatever one you feel most comfortable with in this so called 'clubbing' scenario. I suggest trying them out and see what works best for you.

    noir de noir. dont want anything too light if youre dancing and sweating. neroli portofino would probably have disappeared before you even walked through the doors...

    A full 250 ml flacon. It’s heavier; will deal more damage.

    This.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Honestly, I wouldn't wear any of them to the club. I mean maybe Tuscan Leather, but the thought of sweaty bodies and BO mixed with a nuclear batch of TL almost makes me want to hurl. Black Orchid or Ombre Leather might be alright though.

    Tom Ford gravitates towards a kind of elegant smokiness that feels suffocating in large doses (and I think that's true even of Ombre Leather; it's mildly more wearable than TL but, boy, in heavy doses it's still gonna cause folks to choke), and his lighter fragrances tend not to last on the skin particularly long.

    Easily.

    Just cuts through all the designer dreck you smell in clubs, which is what you want when you announce your presence among the other faux alpha-males looking for potential mates.
