The classiest scent in your wardrobe

CHANEL NO. 19 edp

Even though I used to wear it daily, it's still my fancy dress up perfume.

Even though I wouldn't mind wearing it daily, I think some of the classic perfumes will fit your description of classy.
It's really hard to pick just one, but if I have to, it would be the vintage, original "Chloé" by Karl Lagerfeld.

As for a perfume that makes me feel like it's wearing me rather than me wearing it, I would say my bottle of "Shalimar Parfum Initial". It is so powdery that it makes me aware of it at all times, no subtle and smooth there.

This is quite hard to answer for me since I do not really experience many suit and tie events. However, I often choose perfumes that create a contrast - it's kinda nice to wear Pradas Amber or Tuscan Leather in a dance club. And it actually works.

I do suit up when I go to a play at a theater for example; for those occasions I usually pick "34 Boulevard Saint Germain" by Diptyque. I think in my collection it's the only scent that does smell luxurious, refined and expensive and yet is subtle.

Chamade. For some reason, it reminds of women like Slim Keith, Babe Paley and C.Z. Guest.

Since I spend my professional life in formal wear my pick for a "classy" scent is Creed Baie de Genievre. There is someting about it that is just so timelessly formal and Edwardian. Very Downton Abbey.

Hmmmm... Probably Heritage, but I think that's some sort of influence from my childhood. It smells like rich people's Christmas parties to me, so it's hard for me to wear in an informal occasion.

If it could be a classy scent that I find I can wear any time, it would be Mouchoir de Monsieur hands down. I think it's the definition of class for men. It's quite a shame it isn't marketed better as such - Cbanel No.5 uses that strategy to great effect (and deservedly so).

Hmm, the one I got a decant from for my 25th university reunion was 24, rue Faubourg Smile
As Njdeb wrote in her review
The definition of elegance and class



Edit, there are many other scents .. I'd consider Chamade as well, which I now also have as a miniature .

I can't say I have one particular standout that I would only save for Special Occasions, however, I have some that I have to be in the right mood to wear because they can be somewhat difficult.

That said, every perfume in my possession has its own voice, and I treat them as such. Just depends on the day on which voice is the loudest, you know?

I really do not have a 'classy' perfume as i regularly rotate them as my mood pleases. But if i want to stand out from the crowd I put on Amouage Hommage Attar, Jar bolt of lightning, Guerlain Quand Vient La Pluie or Shalimar and Serge Lutens Chergui.

Clive Christian #1 (for women - and blast, it's almost gone!) as well as Amouage Epic Woman.

"Gold " by Amouage

From my collection, I'd pick No. 1 by Clive Christian, because it's a fragrance I don't wear often and because it fits the bill... in terms of smelling "classy".

I realized yesterday that Moschino by Moschino makes me feel slightly underdressed. So, kinda classy.
