Name That Scent: What We Think Thirdman Eau Profonde Smells Like

Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk.

Fragrance: Thirdman Eau Profonde, $150-250

What Thirdman thinks it smells like: “An unexpected eau de cologne to indulge in uninhibitedly. Its original depth and comfort makes it the eau de cologne for the modern epicureans. The contemporary clean amber: atmospheric, sumptuous, deep, enveloping.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “Lemony, like cleaning fluid. Pine Sol!”
  • “What I use to clean my wood table. It’s like watered-down cleaning solution.”
  • “Very clean! Soapy.”
  • “Musky.”
  • “Abercrombie & Fitch, but not as strong.”
  • “I went to the department store, and put my face in a stack of polo shirts.”
  • “Generic department store fragrance — floral and ladylike.”
  • “Combination of what you would want sex to smell like and frat boy, but not sex with a frat boy.”
  • “My grandfather.”
  • “Cologne, not perfume.”
  • “Unisex…iness?”
  • “Scented bug spray.”
  • “Sterile, like a hospital. Or a dentist.”
  • “A poolhouse.”
  • “Really cheap. You could buy this in a drugstore.”

Tune in next week when we review Valentina by Valentino: “an irreverent Italian floral oriental in which each facet reveals a paradox”.
