Scent Description: Smoke, motor oil, low-octane gasoline.
This is so well-blended and shockingly gorgeous! It smells like all the things it says it does, but I’d almost call it pretty. Gas, oil, and smoke is pretty (!). The scents are married together so you take a sniff, and it’s like a watercolor journey through each one, bleeding and leading into the next. Nothing really stands out, yet I can identify them each as it goes along. It’s impressive. I sampled it just for kicks on myself and it’s still as lovely as it is in the bottle, but I don’t think I’d honestly wear it with my plethora of other choices. I gave it to my guy, whom it was purchased for, and it smells even better on him (I’m jealous because Kentucky Bourbon & Woodsmoke and The Gunslinger were the same way). He smells like a romance-novel version of an auto mechanic. I’ve been stealing huffs all day. He works at a car dealership, so I kind of added this to my Ajevie order as a silly joke gift, but we both like it a heck of a lot more than expected. This is probably going to be his first official roll-on. Joke’s on me!
When I first put this on I was not a fan, but now that it’s been on for a bit it’s really nice, it smells slightly sweet and smoky! Feel like I might reach for this a lot!
I used to work at an auto mechanic shop and Trashcan Man smells exactly like that place – gasoline and motor oil and gear grease. This is a totally realistic and literal scent – definitely not an interpretive one!
Strong gasoline smell with almost a sweet smell underneath? My husband likes it but I can’t see myself wearing it.
This is incredibly realistic smoky sexy gasoline. I was taken aback by it at first but after some testing it has become one of my favorite perfumes to wear around the house. Warning, it’s pretty strong and in your face & so, so good if you’re into this kind of obscure smells.
