Topic: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

What do you think James Bond would smell like? What scent would you match to a particular Bond Movie or actor (George Lazenby, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, Daniel Craig, etc)?

I don't know the individual Bond movies, but in general http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3697.jpg Halston Halston Z14

Or maybe http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.7397.jpg Christian Audigier Ed Hardy Hearts & Daggers for Him (because of the Martini note wink )

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

Those sound excellent starlight!  Halston is quite obvious that I never thought of and I've never smelt a fragrance with a martini note.



The reason why I ask is because when I asked my hubby what his ideal fragrance would be he said, "Something that James Bond wear"

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

I would go the classical route and opt for

and

and no prizes for guessing who the last one is for ...  wink

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

Not the movies, but it is said that in the books, James Bond's fragrance is Floris No89, which Ian Fleming was very fond of. The fragrance is never actually named in any of the novels, but Floris Lime bath essence is mentioned in Dr No.

Sean Connery is scottish.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

I thought in one of the movies there's a mention of: http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.5012.jpg  Geo. F. Trumper Eucris

Also it would make perfect sense for him to wear something british.

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

Sean Connery wears http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.103.jpg Guerlain Jicky  so its hard not to associate this with his portrayal of Bond. It's smooth, sophisticated and a bit cheeky just like the man himself.

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

BONJOUR.Ian Fleming liked Floris perfumes for him and James Bond.

Carpe Diem.

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.829.jpg  Azzaro Azzaro pour Homme --this would be the one. No doubt about about it.

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

Daniel Craig should wear this in Casino Royale

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

Hmm.. Perhaps something classic, typical British, like: http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3939.jpg Penhaligon`s English Fern 16

Re: What Scent Would James Bond Wear?

What a funny question this is!
Well, I can't think of a more appropriate perfume for James Bond, than this:
