    I bought Egoiste for myself the other day (even though I'm a girl) because I heard it smelled like Chanel Bois des Iles. I love it and think it works well on me, but it would be phenomenal on a man....

    Re: A fragrance for a burlesque artiste

    What an interesting new career!

    I think Lipstick Rose and Bvlgari Pour Femme would be perfect, because they both smell like old-fashioned retro girly lipstick.

  17. Re: What deodorant to use in combination with EDT or EDP?

    I like the Estee Lauder Youth Dew roll-on. Obviously it's scented but it's very subtle (for Youth Dew, anyway), but I think the smell of it adds some subtle warmth to whatever fragrance I'm wearing.
