    Default Smell like.... A new car?

    Thank you for posting the link.

    For some reason, have always perceived (though admittedly due to mainly if not even exclusively personal, subjective reasons alone) 90s and/or early to mid 2000s male and unisex designer fragrances from houses like Boss, Kenzo and others comparable to these as quite descriptive and iconic for this particular age.
    ]
    Especially as these being the most convincing and close to a new car smell, also without imposing unreasonable and/or inaccessible requirements in terms of not just price, availability and supply chains, but also their fairly versatile and quite adaptable everyday appropriateness.

    Geez... 224$ for 50ml. Eau de Schmuck, more likely.

    Good grief!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    There must be plenty of schmucks as there are increasing number of options at similar price points.

    I’ve only had a sample of it, but to my recollection Zegna Peruvian Ambrette has a very new car (or new shoes/suit) vibe to it.

    At that price, they can't expect this to go over well. Gear heads aren't going to pay anywhere near that.

    Why spend that much? You can spritz on some Montale Fougeres Marine and smell like a new car for much less!

    What’s wrong with Hermes Bel Ami? Nearest thing to a signature scent for me.

    Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, etc. gearheads? If they want to drop money on a fragrance, I don't see em doing it on this.

    Sounds like an interesting gimmick, but for that price, I'll pass.
