I always think about how everybody thinks that hamburgers smell good, but nobody thinks that people who smell like hamburgers smell good.

the food oriented perfumes tend to smell like things like coffee beans or bananas

When I went shopping for a cologne, my initial intention was to get something with notes of coconut, chocolate, coffee, or anise. The store I went to didn't have any of the last three. They did have coconut stuff, but they were all piña colada-scented, and that felt a little too white-girl's-18th-birthday-party to me.

Ended up getting the below and being happy with it. Has notes of leather, so it reminds me a bit of new-car smell but in the least douchey way.

""Salvatore Ferragamo launches the new FERRAGAMO fragrance for him: a statement blend that expresses the confident and courageous soul of a modern man who journeys through life with passion and inevitable sophistication.

Who do you want to be? Elevating the House’s timeless codes with a sharp contemporary twist, this blend is conceived for a free-thinker that follows his instinct and rules while embracing every new challenge with no hesitation. His restless spirit leads him to look at things from different angles, with unstoppable creativity and boundless curiosity. As he lives in constant motion through dynamic connections and emotional experiences, becoming aware of who he wants to be, he always leaves a lasting impact wherever he goes. FERRAGAMO fragrance is the ultimate expression - the very essence - of this strength and sentiment, which resonates through a rich sequence of contrasting yet harmonious elements poised between gentle masculinity and unrestrained attitude."

perfume is really sick because you probably don't want to spend 2000 dollars on a shirt from a fashion house but you can afford a bottle of smells that will last you a handful of years

these are my favorite cheapy sleepers



this is perfect for a cold winter snowy day when you're walking around in the woods or if you just want to feel like you are. it smells like rotting leaves buried under snow.



do you like rainy days? do you like the movie Inland Empire? Do you like the smell of black ink? This is it.

I suppose when all you have is words and images to market a product whose utility is its smell, you're going to have to get real conceptual.

I worked at Wendy's for a bit. The distinct odour combination of hot grease and anti-septic cleaning solution still traumatizes me. It's like Satan himself walked in and said "make it a combo," and this bipartite stench was the result.

That's why I've been inspired to work on this new scent, "Nightsquare Patty."

this is why I honestly believe that fragrance might be the purest art form. you can't take a video of it, you can't download a picture of it. you can only smell it in real time.

food probably 2nd place but you can take pictures of food.

i've read about places where you can go and make your own scent. probs expensive...never probed. but go in and say "make me smell like a burger."

i worked at jintheb when i moved from home (in tx) to az the month after graduating h.s. and there was already a hierarchy at the place. the coolest dude there would spend time at the place even during a day off showing up drunk and stuff with his cool unintimidating country friends lol. but everyone made fun of an old lady who worked there

thankfully i snagged a job as a night cook at a nursing home and got my own bathroom and worked alone except for two aides that came in to help serve and clean

heads up you can use a search feature on fragrantica and enter in terms of what you like and it will show reccos based on what you entered.

it's fun to play with. got a recco for something that smells like petrichor and mechanical grease.

I feel this way about pancakes after working at IHOP. Completely ruined for me.

I have perfumes and lotion that smell like you just opened a jar of vanilla icing, or strawberry yogurt. Watermelon bubble gum.

can we talk about how magically around the same time cigarette smoking indoors was banned that white women began to form performative "allergies" (coughing in public) against strong perfume?

which led to the current state of watered down aquatics or the scared tendency to "only put on a couple spritzes for special occassions"

Now is also as good of a time as any to also state that I don't think perfume is necessarily a "tool of seduction"

I think it should be a personal journey

Maybe he still wants them to smell like people though, that's why I said "might"
