What fragrance do you guys (and gals) think the lead male character Mitch Brenner (Actor Rod Taylor) would have worn in Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"?

...and what about Melanie Daniels as played by actress Tippi Hedren?

bois du portugal or green irish tweed

melaine would wear fleurs de bulgarie

Mr.DBond007 weighs in with lovely choices from CREED for Mitch and Melanie. Interesting that he has Melanie wearing a long-lasting rose fragrance. We all know she is going to need it!:shocked:

I was going to suggest a fragranced aerosol pigeon & gull repellent but there doesn't seem to be one. One site I visited echoed the general industry advice : Electric shock is our specialty.

Is there a cologne with an electrical theme?

Hear hear - I heartily appreciate the "locavore" choices.

My choices would be:

Macassar (Rochas) for the city

Green Water (Fath) for the country

I know, right? Mitch is just that kind of community aware, socially conscious, ever appropriate man. Macassar for Monday- Wednesday and Cravache for Thursday- Saturday. He would never be in the city on a Sunday.

Okay, since I am a great Hitchcock fan (though Birds is not my fave film of his), I imagine Tippi Hedren wearing Tabac Blond and Rod Taylor Jicky or vice-versa :)

They would both definitely own Chanel fragrances. Especially her. In fact, Melanie probably has the entire line-up. Ditto anything floral and aldehydic from Guerlain, her favorite being Mitsouko. Lydia secretly loves Shalimar but would never admit it. Mitch probably doesn't wear anything in Bodega Bay; but if pressed he likes a dash of Dior's Eau Sauvage. And of course, when he's at the Cuir Du Castro he only sports his very own manscent, Eau de Mitch.

Oh, actually, Mitch couldn't wear Eau Sauvage because it hasn't been invented yet. Let's say in lieu of that he'd wear something fresh and citrusy maybe Canoe or 4711. Or one of those ancient Guerlain scents like Eau du Coq that his neighbor in the city gave him because he "had some extra from his last trip to the Continent..."
By the way, I love this question! It's fun. Post some more movie characters!!!

I'm late to the party but I agree with 4711 for Mitch. He's a basic guy.

Tippi Hedren is anosmic after having a couple of falls years ago which damaged her olfactory nerves. She said her favorite perfume was Joy by Jean Patou. She also likes the smell of coffee, rain and puppies.
