    Default What's the brightest/liveliest/cheeriest fun scent for a larger than life character?

    Something that just screams "that guy's an absolute BLAST!!!"

    A colorful, exuberant, infectious character in a bottle... Everyone smiles uncontrollably in his presence...

    For me, Costume National Homme managed to make that effect when I tried it for the first time in 2013. Today I relate more with that first impression when it comes to that frag than I find it to be like that objectively. I also find Hermes Terre d'Hermes to be rather close to instigating such emotions in me. This is a very subjective matter, as most are when it comes to personal preferences and/or "feelz", but I have to mention Guerlain Homme EdP, Bvlgari Aqva Amara and Versace Pour Homme here as well. I really love those and find them to be very positive. I'm looking forward to see what makes other tick as thread develops.

    “I have often observed that [scents] cause an alteration in me and work upon my spirits according to their several virtues; which makes me approve of what is said, that the use of incense and perfumes in churches, so ancient and so universally received in all nations and religions, was intended to cheer us, and to rouse and purify the senses, the better to fit us for contemplation” - Montaigne

    Amouage Beach Hut Man - How much more fun can you have hanging out on the beach next to your own private beach hut with your circle of friends and smelling great to boot. Throw in a case of cold Corona Extra and you're set to go. Limes optional.

    So many great suggestions! The parrothead scents are sweeping the field, but big neroli is a winner, and cool class (HM EDT, Chanels) and old school class (Havana) are all awesome. Then all those perfect clear bright citrus scents and eaux - yes!

    My suggestions are all DONE above, but I once provoked many big smiles with happy rays from a great bottle of Neroli Sauvage.
