  8. Re: Given the chance, what would you name a perfume?

    From the Freudian line:

    Id
    Ego
    Superego

    These are names(crass) from my experimental/personal blends:
    Vanilla with Balls

    Definitely Eau Duelle. I find Molinard Vanille Marine more interesting than Molinard Vanille.
  24. Re: Which "Vanilla" here would be sensual, and great for Night ?

    Agrees with this, Eau Duelle has a very good top to base development.
    To OP, from your list, I'd pick MIP. For something more mainstream, I'd recommend Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin and Eau des Baux.
