    Default What would you wear to a fragrance awards ceremony!?

    Can't sleep.
    Saw some Fifi or Fufu or what haves you on fragrantica, looks pretty swish.
    Wondering what the bods who attend wear and MORE importantly what would you choose from your wardrobe.

    A high quality natural-based gem that ironically will never win an award at such events. Something along the lines of Sultan Pasha’s Aurum d’Angkhor or Bortnikoff Bonheur would smell intriguing during the inevitable meet-and-greet, air kissing... etc.

    Incense Rose by Tauer Fragrances, or Black EDT by Comme Des Garcons if it's raining outside.

    Sauvage, the only choice for such an event.

    On a serious note, Memo Paris Shams Oud. Sure, it's not really obscure or anything, but from my (full bottle) collection, it would be my "go to" choice for a fragrance awards show. In fact, that would be my first choice for any type of fragrance related event, local meet up, or social setting where I know I would be interacting with other fragrance enthusiasts vs a non-fragrance related event.

    Royal Oud, simply because it's the classiest fragrance in my collection.

    I'd troll everyone by wearing Aventus. Most awards ceremonies are b***ocks anyway.

    I like the way you guys think. This is an event for aficionados and professionals, so I also would wear something outstanding and uncommon. And, this is one of the few times I’d truly overspray.

    For starters, I’d likely go vintage and remind people what fragrances could smell like without handcuffing perfumers with regulations. I originally thought about first edition Lauder For Men (which is an outstanding black tie event fragrance), Gucci Nobile, Eau de Patou, Creed Vetiver (‘48), and Creed Santal Imperial. Or I could wear one of several true unicorns just to drive people nuts. ‘Oh, you’ve never heard of this? This is the greatest and most elegant oakmoss fragrance of all time...’

    If I were a perfumer, I’d simply overspray whichever fragrance of mine I’m trying to promote.

    I wonder if the people that actually create these scents even wear anything? They're around it so much, I could see the place either being devoid of much fragrance at all or just a huge smog cloud and you can't even find your seat.

    I'm guessing if they were wearing something, it's probably the latest and greatest, I'd try to find the most vintage and rare thing I could get my hands on.

    I was thinking before I posted, “I wonder what fragrance Paul Kiler wore at the recent awards banquet where he was a winner?” Paul, if you’re reading, do tell.

    On the more daring, statement making, borderline provocative side, Creed BDP, among safer, generally classic dry, gentlemanly citrus choices, either something like Armani Eau pour Homme or with a similar structure yet additionally with pine, lavender and/or some spice, like three Penhaligon's fragrances happen to like very much: Blenheim Bouquet, Sartorial, Opus 1870
