    Re: Pipe tobacco frag? (Not Tobacco Vanille!)

    Hmmm. CB I Hate Perfume's website has GreenBriar 1968, which is described as including a pipe tobacco note, and also has a straight Pipe Tobacco accord.

    Re: What do you own in a pure parfum version?

    Chanel No. 19. It's the only strength of this one that I like, though I'm trying to also like the EDT, quite frankly because it's cheaper. :)

    I also have the pure parfum Chanel coffret from last...

    Is it just totally wrong to say Black Orchid?

    Maybe, but I really like the idea.

    Re: Scents that drive her wild

    OK, I'm un-shushing.

    I understand that the original hyperbole is hyperbole, but it does suggest a mindset that a lot of women are likely to find unattractive, no matter how it's perfumed. The idea...

    Re: Bois 1920

    Yep! Oh, that's interesting - I didn't even realize, until looking just now, that Terre d'Hermes is officially a masculine. I even went to check Eau d'Orange Verte, but I just assumed that Terre...

    Re: Scents that drive her wild

    I guess it's the hyperbole ("drive her wild") that's bothering me. A fragrance might make you fractionally more attractive, or....well, frankly, I think it can hurt a lot more than it can help.

  89. Re: Whic is the most preferable Serge Lutens fragrance for men?

    Actually, I pretty much agree with you on the opening - I only really like Serge Noire about two hours in, but I love it so much then that I'm willing to wait. This is the opposite of my reaction to...

    It occurs to me that the finger in her mouth annoys me more than the lack of shirt. The clothing (or lack of) choice can be an intelligent, confident, quirky kind of sexy - I think it's overkill and...

    Re: Scents that drive her wild

    So you missed the "it's the man, not the fragrance" part?

    Fragrance doesn't do what you're asking. Just doesn't work that way.

  92. Re: Whic is the most preferable Serge Lutens fragrance for men?

    Serge Noire. For me, it leaves all the others behind. (And I like some of the others a lot.)

    But it's emphatically not a blind buy choice. Some people hate it with a passion.

    Re: recommendation for a leather scent?

    So, not sexy, just nice?

    Daim Blond or Cuir Venenum. Comfortable, friendly, luxurious suede/leather.

    But not both, IMO; I have them both and while I love them both, they're similar enough to...

    Re: anti unisex

    In my case, I'm a woman but almost the only "feminines" that I like are galbanum-and-jasmine-soaked green florals - and I actually don't see why something like Chanel No. 19 parfum or the original...

    As a woman who wears Sushi Imperiale, I don't think it's the least bit feminine. I think that it's unisex leaning toward masculine, and if I were choosing a scent for an occasion where a masculine...

    I like it a lot. (I love Cristalle EDT, No. 19 parfum, and the old Vent Vert, and like Green-green-green-and-green and the new Vent Vert, so I guess it's no surprise that I like it.) It's not...

  100. Re: HELP! I am a newbie with indifferent nose and a cold(!)

    I believe it's "officially" a man's fragrance, but I wanted to suggest sniffing Creed Original Vetiver. Green, bright, not too sweet, not floral.
