    Question What did Michael smell like/what perfume or cologne did he wear?

    I've been wanting to ask this for a long time, but I didn't want you all to think I'm weird.
    But today I finally got the courage to ask.
    So, what did Michael smell like?
    I bet he smelled amazing!

    I remember reading stories about Bal A Versailles and Tom Ford's Black Orchid. People have mentioned a few others-I heard about these after his death. I know he said women's perfumes smelled better.

    Oh, I almost forgot Lisa Robinson's story about Jungle Gardenia-she was wearing it (around Victory Tour time) and he recognized it immediately-so she gave him some-and the next time she saw him backstage he was wearing it.

    I actually love Jungle Gardenia-gardenias period. It was one of Elizabeth Taylor's favorite perfumes, so maybe he quit wearing it when they became friends.

    As far as I know BAV and Black Orchid were his "signatuture" perfumes.

    I read on another forum that Michael even used to pour some Black Orchid into the rinsing water of the washing machine.

    Is it just me who thinks it'd be nicer to meet him after a show when he's all sweaty? :P

    I was gonna ask the same thing, but then I thought about it and was like "how exactly do you describe a scent?"

    I splurged on BAV a few years ago, because I wanted something of him that I knew he liked at my fingertips. I think of warm, floral, spicy-ness when I wear it...

    This link might be helpful in describing the scent: http://www.jeandesprez.com/balaversaillesexclusive.html


    I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.

    nothing weird about that. I'm sure a lot of fans has been curious about this. I certainly have, and still am at times...
    I remember in the 90's, there were a lot of talk among my friends that he liked the Opium perfume. idk where it came from, it was just a lot of talk about it

    I am extremely devoted to Michael Jackson

    Sorry to bump this thread but maybe you can help me.. I know Michael used Black Orchid as a scent but do you know whether he used the male or the female one?

    And what about Opium, was it the female scent?

    Thanks a lot for your help!!

    I am in no way saying this to make Michael sound extra Magical!


    BUT.. When I and my wife (than girlfriend) shook his hand in 2009.. my hand smelled nice for the rest of the day!! As silly as it sounds, but that scent that his backup dancers mentioned on the special features in This Is It is REAL..

    the scent was not so much "cologne" type sent.. but almost a powder scent, if I can try to explain the difference that way.. it had a.. ahh it's hard to explain, a Vanilla, cinnamon-esk type sent.. !?!?

    I promise you, my wife and I smelled our hands all through the day "I don't want to wash my hands ever again." even while eating dinner (while Michael was rehearsing) and before I knew I could actually HEAR him if I was close enough.. I was like "oh no, we're eating." checked my hand to see if the food masked the MJ scent, and it was STILL there.

    I have never shook someones hands and make ME smell better! haha.. I thought to myself, that's how I want to be with others, leave that lingering to subconsciously remind people of me all day.
