    Default The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/own

    Personally, I would say Voleur de Roses.

    What do other Basenoters think?

    Bois du Portugal by Creed.

    Pure class.
    Top 5 for Late Summer:

    I'm going with Voleur de Roses because I am wearing right now and it is heavenly. I give it my vote.

    I can't pick just one, I have too many incredible frags. But, Bois d'Argent certainly qualifies. So does Egoiste. And Bois du Portugal...I can't pick just one. This is hurting my head!

    Default Re: The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/ow

    This is a tie among TfT, Mechant Loup, and Dzing. They are all works of art to my nose.

    Now, the frag I wear when I need a comforting scent is actually Kouros Sport.

    ETIQUETTE BLEUE

  11. #11

    Default Re: The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/ow

    Well, we need to define beautiful here, or this will become another "what's your favorite" or "what's your number one." Beautiful to me means well-crafted, classy, sophisticated, maybe even "expensive smelling," and probably not something wacky, quirky, ground-breaking, or in-your-face; those are all admirable qualities, but not what I personally would define as beautiful (though we could all differ on our definition of beauty).

    Given that, I say Amouage Dia with Balenciaga PH a close second.

  12. #12

    Default Re: The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/ow

    Right now i would have to say FM's Carnal Flower. This is one of the few fragrances i own that i actually crave sometimes.

    To me Gai Mattiolo Man`s smells like the airlesness in space, far away from here where we are.

    And that should tell my opinion.

    Default Re: The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/ow

    (1) Voleur de Roses and (2) L'Homme Sage are beautiful fragrances. I happen to love them both.

    A long gone treasure: Lanvin Gentleman.
    Chanel Pour Monsieur and Boucheron pour Homme are as beautiful as they are volatile (the original Colognes).

    I own and love Chanel Antaeus, one of my all-time favorites; also, I find Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile one of the most transporting fragrances I've ever smelled.

    I think Acqua di Parma Colonia is the most beautiful. However, its longevity on the skin is poor.

    Acqua di Gio!

    (oh wait, April Fool's day was 10 days ago...)

    I'd go with Acier Aluminum by Creed. It's just so sexy and wonderfully blended; the ambergris and vanilla are to die for. From an ingredients standpoint, it's really rather simple in composition, but the scent itself is just so deep and exotic that I can't help myself... I end up pulling it out and smelling it at least once a day. Now if it weren't $5,120 a gallon (if I can get bottle for $100... and we complain about gas prices).

    Default Re: The most BEAUTIFUL fragrance you have tried/ow

    I think Carthusia prefers it that way. I visited their Profumi in Capri 10 years ago. I walked in and they have photographs of famous clients who visits and use their products. Andy Warhol, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, I.M. Pei, etc. For a while the only way I could re-order the fragrances ( Uomo and Number 2 ) is via post with a check. I have to wait for them to cash the check and then they mail me the fragrances. Carthusia is a very discreet house. With that said, yes, I second the motion, their fragrances are indeed beautiful and true to their ethos that they use ingredients indigenous to Isole di Capri.

    Dior Homme. I feel transformed when I wear it.

    Kind of suprised at all the Acqua di Parma nods. Tried it a few months back at Bigelow, and it didn't move me at all.
