Scenting Yourself For Thanksgiving.

What fragrance will you choose to wear to Thanksgiving dinner this year?

Are you choosing a scent that you know and love, or are you making an effort to wear a more “holiday-ish” scent?
Heritage edt by Guerlain--for the symbolic meaning (to the first Thanksgiving) and because I find it to such a perfect autumn fragrance.

That’s a wonderful pick! It really is nice for this season.

I was considering Ambre Narguile if I went towards a holiday-type scent, but I’m not sure if I want to go that route. Maybe for Christmas.

I will probably wear Aramis. It was my father's signature and I always remember him around this holiday. He was a doctor and actually used forceps and surgical needles to suture up the turkey.... Heritage is a great choice, though!
My father figure --my mother's former boyfriend when I was growing up wore aramis exclusively year around. I wear it Christmas Eve and Christmas Day--and always fondly think of Dean--who introduced aramis to my mother--who introduced it to me.

I'm going with a Hermessence as well: Brin de Reglisse. Light, airy, and diffusive.

I’ve been meaning to compare - well, not compare, since I believe you said they were almost a timeline - the Brin de Reglisse with the Jicky and Caron Pour un Homme. I’d had a rough start with the Jicky.

But light, airy and diffusive sounds perfect for a gathering.

Pippin, your posts have sparked a deep dive into memory banks for images of being around 'ol timers in my 'youngin' days. Appreciate it!

To honor their memories, I'm narrowing a Thanksgiving wear down to something I would have recalled smelling at family Thanksgivings:

1.) Ralph Lauren Chaps (vintage)
2.) Avon Wild Country (vintage)

Leanin' towards #1...



Kosui - Great idea for a thread

Ah--Ralph Lauren Chaps! Had a bottle of this in the late 70s and loved it.

This is such a sweet sentiment 🙂 What a wonderful idea for choosing a fragrance - scents that you remember from past Thanksgivings. I love this.

And thank you so much for your kind words!

I'll be wearing Homesteader's Cologne Water by D.S. & Durga on Thanksgiving Day. The strong sage note fits right in the kitchen when I'm rubbing down the turkey with butter, fresh sage, rosemary, and thyme.

HCW smells very herbal and woodsy and matches my memories of Thanksgiving, family and a wonderful meal together, spent thinking about all those we love and how grateful we are for every one of them.

That's a good question that I've actually given some thought to in the last week. My wife and i will be going over to my mother-in law's house for thanksgiving, along with my wife's brother and his wife & 3 kids. So you figure there will be at least 8 people in a home with a small living room & kitchen/dining room area. The reason I was giving some thought to it is because I didn't want to wear anything too strong (such as Tom Ford Black Orchid EDP or Parfum) with all of us being in such close proximity to each other, but something I would still enjoy wearing (Maybe Pasha De Cartier Parfum or the Limited Edition Parfum, Dior Homme Intense, or Dolce & Gabbana The One EDP). I'm thinking maybe one of those because I both enjoy the scent and it won't be too over bearing either as they don't project too much but still smell great.

Good thoughts here...better to not overpower the smells of the dinner which everyone is there to smell and taste, eh?

Reading this was lovely!

This is very, very thoughtful of you.

I remember sitting down to a meal once at a dinner party, and the woman next to me smelled great, but had sprayed with such a heavy hand that it started mingling with the smell of my food, and it was just a really uncomfortable experience. In a more positive light, I learned from that dinner, and always remember to use a light touch when I’m wearing a scent to a dinner or any occasion that revolves around food.

The edp.

Hmmmm, I didn’t even consider the edt!

Ugh, no wonder you're struggling with it! 😆 Try the EDT, it seemed fleeting to me at first but a generous application of the stuff yields really interesting results, I get random wafts popping up in the air during the day, mainly tuberose and iris but also cedarwood and the notes are really distinct to my nose!
