I Am King By Sean Combs

I think it's important for a man to smell nice. I've been looking for a new fragrance to try out. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks for any advice.

Anybody know what sort of cologne any of the Rat Packers might have worn? I have no clue about that.

I've seen all the promotion for I Am King by Sean Combs. I wasn't sure if it was a good scent or not. I've read some mixed reaction about it. I will admit that I like the marketing for it though. It's promoting a lifestyle and attitude that I'm sure many men will find appealing.

Here are some ads for it, plus a mini-movie (it's like five minutes long) that I hope you will check out.

I think what I find most off-putting about I Am King is that he really believes it...
..it's like, dude, get over yourself..

Keith said...

Hey Joe. Thanks for the comments. Yeah, he's definitely a cocky guy.

There's only one king in my life. That's my husband.

Keith said...

That is so sweet. :-) I'm sure you are his queen.

Hey pallie Keith, dude likes we have Dinospoken of this before...our Dino's cool choice of Dinoscent was the provocative Woodhue by the fab folks...recently read that our Dino's boypallie Ricci uses this scent in honor of his daddy-o....

Diddy is such a pimp! Love the heli shot!

And what a fun query about the Rat Packers' cologne . . . will mull that one over.

Hope you had a great weekend, K!

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. That's right. Man, I had forgotten all about that. Thanks for letting me know again. I appreciate it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks for the comments. I did have a great weekend. I hope you did too. I love those pictures. I thought that video was pretty cool. I know now what Dino wore, but it would be interesting to know what Frank and Sammy wore. Cheers!

I forgot to mention this. I almost hate to because you will probably poke fun. The only thing my husband uses is Old Spice.

Keith said...

I'm not going to make fun. Most of the guys in my family used that when I was growing up. Many of them still do. I've used it myself over the years.

It smells surprisingly good actually, I thought I would hate it. I'm still loving my more traditional fragrances like Hermes Bel Ami or something like Dolce and Gabbana The One. Oh, and I hope you're Easter weekend was a good one :)

Keith said...

Hey Dapper Kid. Thanks for the comments. I wondered if it smelled good or not. Thanks for mentioning those other ones. I'll have to check those out. I did have a nice Easter. I hope you did too.

for the love of frank said...

i remember being enchanted by a liz claiborne fragrance my first love wore... it's rare, but occasionally i get a passing whiff of it and swoon! it's positively smashing dahling...

as to sean... it's tough to respect a guy who is continually changing his manner of personal address. seriously, how many names have i had to re-remember now?

sweet style though, that cat's coooool. puurrrr

Allison said...

Diddy is definitely pretty into himself - you're right, this is definitely selling a lifestyle type image!

Fast Eddie's Retro Rags said...

They could've rocked Aqua Velva or English Leather, but a little less "blue-collar" were Chanel Pour Monsieur and Aramis.

As for you, may I suggest Envy by Gucci? Smashing, that.

La Couturier said...

I think it's quite important for a guy to smell nice =] I love it when my guy friends wear cologne - it makes hugs all the more delicious ;].

Bisous,

Keith said...

Hey For The Love Of Frank. Thanks for the comments. It was nice to hear from you. Yeah, he does seem to change his name all the time. lol He does have some cool style & swagger though. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Allison. We definitely know he doesn't suffer from low self esteem. lol I think this is selling a lifestyle as much as a fragrance itself.

Keith said...

Thanks Fast Eddie. I appreciate the comments. I'll definitely have to check that out. I like the name Envy. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hello La C. Thanks for the comments. I totally know what you mean. I love to smell some great fragrance on my female friends. I do think it's a good idea for men to smell nice too.

Some Like it Vintage said...

Never really cared for Sean Coombs, but the ads are very stylish. Maybe the rat pack put whiskey behind their ears for a nice manly scent :-) !! lol!

Thanks for stopping by the blog and commenting Keith, always appreciated. Nice to know someone out there is reading it!

Keith said...

Thanks for the comments. I'm not that big a fan of Combs. I like some of the things he does, but I think he's full of himself.

I like your idea about what the Rat Pack used for their cologne. lol

You are very welcome. I like your blog a lot. Thanks for stopping by mine.

Cologne and appearance go hand in hand. To pull of cologne with a desired effect it's best to stimulate the eyes and nose at the same time. Dress nicely, it doesn't have to be a suit but put a little effort into it and you'll find your results skyrocketing. Different colognes work well on different people too. Asking the sales clerks for advice isn't generally your best bet, they just want to sell. Finally, when using cologne, don't bathe in it. A little goes a long way. Ultimately get a scent you enjoy - you're the one that has to smell it the most. Go sniff around and see what you like!

Keith said...

Hey Steph. Thanks for those great comments. I really appreciate them. It was wonderful to hear from you. That's some fantastic advice you offered. I'll be sure to keep all that in mind. Thanks again. Take care. Cheers!

I heard once on a tv show that was featuring a modern-day rocker (forget who) obsessed by Sinatra that he (FS) loved Yardley's English Lavender. This guy had the liquid soap in his bathroom for this reason! Don't know if Frank would've worn it as a fragrance....

Keith said...

Hey Tikimama. Thanks for the comments. I had never heard that anywhere before. I appreciate you letting me know. That's cool. Take care. Cheers!
