    Default What fragrance would you use to go to a History Museum ?

    Hello, this is rather a game to develop the imagination and learn more about the facets of certain fragrances.

    What fragrance would you choose to go to a History Museum ?


    To me I choose Guerlain Heritage

    I like this question and I like the idea of event or place-specific perfumes. Of the perfumes I currently own:

    1) Vintage Mitsouko or Shalimar
    2) Areej - Ottoman Empire II
    3) Ensar - Crime & Punishment
    4) Amelia (Dixit & Zak) - Ghaliya Reflection
    5) Vintage Arden for Men Sandalwood

    Almost anything by Parfum d'Empire -- but especially Iskander, their homage to Alexander the Great.

    Do you ever attempt to match a fragrance to a certain setting?

    Default Re: What fragrance would you use to go to a History Museum ?

    If going to any history museum, something combing a certain sense for tradition and classic style, while not projecting heavily (maybe ADP Colonia/4711 or other traditional EDC, ADP Blu Mediterraneo, Eau Sauvage EDT, Eau de Cartier, Eau de Hermes, Best of Chevignon, Blenheim Bouquet among others).

    If however going to a fragrance history museum and/or one where perfumes, cosmetics and-or fashion etc. are an important part of the exhibitions displayed and the historical periods covered, nearly all fragrances seem a fairly appropriate personal choice.

    Unless the history museum also displays and includes testings, recreations etc. of historical fragrances. In this case, one of the main interest would be to know these respective scents better-thus would actually consider going unscented or wearing something almost neutral with minimal and fleeting projection.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Givenchy Gentleman. It is a fantastic fragrance, it has a composed vibe to it, and it stays a little closer to the body, so won‘t irritate others.
    Searching for:
    vintage Silver Mountain Water, Warner/Cosmair Polo Green, early l‘Air du Desert Marocain (rectangular or early blue bottle)
    I‘m not fond of your overly huge signature^^

    25 sprays of Dior Sauvage EDP or Paco Rabanne 1 Million, to ensure you're able to clear whichever section or area you're in at the Museum.

    History museum? I'd look up what Napoleon wore (probably a Creed), and wear that, and everyone will think the wax statue of him is alive.

    I think Areej Le Dore Antiquity would be the best choice by far

    Aventus was actually commissioned by Napoleon himself.


    Another museum candidate is Noir Patchouli for me

    No, it wasn’t a Creed of course (just in Creed’s wonderland dreams maybe). They don’t say what he wore, but they show the flask he carried in his boots in a museum. It’s very interesting.

    Lol. It makes me think Creed would try to say something like that.
