Thread: whats your equivalent to the power tie?

  1. #1

    Default whats your equivalent to the power tie?

    do you have a frag that you wear at work that is your power tie equivalent of "do not f*** with me today i am in charge" fragrance? like "i dont give a f*** what u think" scent when youre in that kind of mood?

    i dont know if i have one. even tho tobacco vanille isn't a rough fragrance given the vanilla, the strong scent it has is why sometimes i like to wear it when im in one of those moods. its like i know its not a work scent and it's strong sillage but again 'i dont give a damn' type of days it hits the spot!

    i can see where aventus would work for this but i dont like the smell of aventus even tho i own it.

    My favorite less altruistic scents are:

    MPG ~ Route du Vetiver
    Guerlain ~ Mouchoir de Monsieur

    For me a power tie scent is Profumum Fumidus, which opens with a good measure of scotch whisky but stretches out into a classy but fortified vetiver. If I want a DFWM scent, I wear SMN's Nostalgia, which smells like black leather, gasoline and motor oil.

    Maybe K10 or Pen's Douro fits. When I am being aloof and perhaps distainful or arrogant, Pen's BB. Or maybe Lorenzo Villirosi Vet Sigilli Anthuna or however that is spelled!

    +1 on the Vintage Tabarome if you can find it.
    If not, Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet--

    Grey Flannel.
    Dior Dune pour Homme.

    Both very dry, no-funny-business scents with excellent projection.

    +1 Vint.Tab. Also like the Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie suggestion, although its so dang lovely its hard to stay in that agressive mood!

    Aramis Havana too.

    Vintage Tabarome or maybe a good shot of old form Givenchy Gentlemen - let them get a blast of raw civet! Bois du Portugal or Blenheim Bouquet for a more civilized muscle flexing.

    Floris Elite. Beautiful, but not a fragrance that invites others to hang out and watch the game.
    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion.

    I really enjoy both of these scents. TFE took a few wearings to grow on me, while Elite was an instant winner.

    I like the way you think. I'll have to get some Douro.

    I've been using a sample vial of this, and agree.
    Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
