Heres an interesting topic I though up today in the car... If you were to make a steampunk perfume/deodorant smell, what would it be? I for one think that freshly cut wood would make a nice smell... How about you?

I smelt the new Diesel at Macy's, pretty hot, and a very industrial/steamy bottle/satchel

A subtle blend of Brandy & Pipe Tobacco. Smells like Steam Spirit.

I second Diesel, it smells great and comes in a pre-steamy package.

I don't mean something that exists, I'm saying make up your own smell. Describe what a steampunk smellyproduct would smell like! Lidenbrock's got the idea Wink

I ordered a sample of Black Phoenix labs "Cthulu" scent... Yeah, I was curious to find out what the Great One smelled like. I'll be sure to let you all know what is what with that scent  Wink

I've always had a certain nostalgic affection for the smell of Cordite now I stop to think about it.
Not entirely sure I wish to know what Cthulu smells like but my guess would be Calamares & Kelp. Lips sealed

It most certainly has a taste. Make something that smells like brass tastes. I'd personally, as a scent say...failing the brass smell, something that makes the air smell damp, and oily. Like being next to a greasy machine.

Brass has a sort of...sharp, dribble inducing smell. Very odd indeed.

Brasso has a very distinctive aroma with obvious connections to brass per se.

I recently took delivery of a box full of old brass cogs and other watch/clockwork parts, the smell when we opened it up was devine...
So I am thinking a blend of (if you could somehow capture it...think book/movie Perfume) oily brass cogs, leather, pipe tabacco, sandalwood (love that woody scent) and perhaps just a touch of Patchouli and Bergamot for slight spice and sweetness...

But I am avidly perusing the Black Pheonix website as I only use perfume oils and their blends sound absolutely devine...scent is such a powerful motivator  Grin

Ahhh...this one sounds pretty darn good to me...

HELLFIRE :: NEW FORMULATION
A scent celebrating Sir Francis Dashwood's Order of the Knights of St. Francis of Wycombe, also known as the Hellfire Club. A swirl of pipe tobacco, hot leather, ambergris, dark musk and the lingering incense smoke from their Black Mass.

    Dear Mr. Langstaff,

    I like your word "smellyproduct" (really. I'm not joking). I can picture going into a store and asking for the "smellyproducts" section, then watching the reaction on someones face.

I've got a small box full of various imps from BPAL and Possets (they make some great ones too!)

I'm almost never disappointed with anything from either of them!

Mssr. Atterton you are, of course, correct sir. No smell in and of itself. Though I think the good Professor has nailed it in one. Brasso. I spent many an afternoon between deployments polishing what seemed like all the brass in North Carolina. And that is exactly the smell I associate with our lovely brass.

I was thinking along the lines of this thread the other day when I was putting on my perfume.
I'd imagine for a female, herbal/floral smells would be most attractive.

Yes but there wouldn´t be much steampunk/victorian about herbal/floral smells in themselves.

As a child I knew some old ladies who had been born in the Victorian era.My recollection is that they could be divided into those who smelled of Lavender & those who smelled of Lily of the Valley.

one smell that i particularly like is the scent that is produced when the ban saw at school slices through a peice of pine, its particularly old and once the saw gets going the smell of oil, grease, heating metal, fresh cut timber and a slight hint of burning wood all come out and it truly is the smell of the saws history and i do love it.
