    Default Women's fragrances men adore?

    1. What fragrances do you men find most attractive on a woman? Sexy vs. elegant?
    2. Are there particular notes you find alluring?

    (I realize that technically this post should go in the "Women's Fragrances" forum, but I bet far fewer men read that than in this forum.)

    You can't go wrong with Chanel scents. *Chance is the sexiest to me, while Coco Madamoiselle manages to be fun and classy at the same time.

    Coco Madamoiselle gets mentioned a bit here.
    Personally, I like YSL Opium, but I don't think I've every smelled it on
    a woman, so can't comment on it's smell on skin.

    L'Air du Temps is pretty good too.

    Eau de Parfum Gucci is, surprisingly, my absolute favourite fragrance. Nothing tops it in my opinion (and do I love my Lutens, though !) I am amazed not to smell it on women more than that (in fact I only met one girl wearing it once.)

    Annick Goutal's Grand Amour is fantastic too, in a totally different way (Goutal's women's fragrances are really beautiful, by the way : Eau de Charlotte, Petite Chérie, Passion... all jewels !)

    Aromatics Elixir by Clinique had me going crazy in the middle of a Sephora store !

    Mitsouko and Vol de Nuit by Guerlain, obviously...

    And I will end this already too long list with Coco by Chanel, a precious thing...

    There are so many more, but I think you girls have big enough a choice among these ones !!!

    Alexander McQueen's Kingdom is absolutely amazing. I gave a bottle to my sister and she wouldn't wear it because she said it was too masculine! What's that about?

    I also love Hermes' Eau des Merveille. It is a wonderful ambergris fragrance that smells clean, like soap. I was lucky enough to have a friend (thanks Shannon!) send me a sample and I loved it. I now have a full bottle on the way. I had several people compliment me when I was testing this one. I highly recommend it!

    I also am totally addicted to Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie. It's roses and ambergris and musk. The dry-down is magical. I have had women stop me and ask what I was wearing with this one too.

    just discovered a sample of Ma Griffe - a very fresh, green and elegant EDT also carrying some kind of Carven house element I am familiar with from their Vetiver. The difference is a rather personal one - I find it easier to wear than vetiver, which I remember as more in your face! Does anyone have experience wearing Ma Griffe?
    I was surprised to find a benevolent comment from De Charlus in the directory!

    It all depends on the lady and the situation.

    A few weeks ago a girl came into work, and I recognized that she was wearing Joop (she was impressed, but come on, who can't recognize Joop?). For some reason, it just fit her perfectly though it wasn't a men's scent. I typically don't like any of the Tommy frags for women, but my one lady friend wears one of them particularly well (I don't remember which one it is though). Once I was out at a club, two ladies had Angel on- it fit one of them much better than the other (probably clothes and hair color had an influence of this one for some reason).

    But in all truthfulness, I just like a pleasantly-scented women regardless of what they wear.
