    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.

    Burberry Touch, Coco Mademoiselle, and any woman bold enough to wear a scent before 1993.

    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.

    Shalimar by a mile.

    Although it's not particularly sexy, Guerlain's Après L'ondée is elegant enough to drive strong men mad.
