Bois du Portugal by Creed.
Personally, I would say Voleur de Roses.
What do other Basenoters think?

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!
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.

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.
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.

A tie between these:
Bois du Portugal
Neroli Sauvage is the most beautiful as well as GIT.
D Orsay Etiquette Bleue,i want to drink it :-*
Axe Africa ;D

Another vote for Carnal Flower, one of the richest and most gorgeous things you can buy in a bottle. At the moment, Chergui is a close second.
my favorites that smell "beautiful":
Silver Mountain Water
Davidoff's Relax, Chanel's Egoiste
Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
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.
(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).
'Il mondo dei profumi č un universo senza limiti: una fraganza puo rievocare sensazioni, luoghi, persone o ancora condurre in uno spazio di nuove dimensioni emozionali' L. V.
it's quite impossible for me to pick just one i would say
VOLEUR DES ROSE
APRES L'ONDEE L'EAU DIPTYQUE
ETRO GOMMA -L'OMBRE DANS L'EAU
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.

It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
I think Acqua di Parma Colonia is the most beautiful. However, its longevity on the skin is poor.
The most beautiful men's fragrance I know is Antaeus.

Great suggestion! To this I add Divine Bergamot and Bois d'Iris, and concur with others on Tabac Blond, Acqua di Parma Colonia/Colonia Assoluta, and Voleur des Roses.Originally Posted by giannis
Bois du Portugal, although Musc Ravageur is close.
i dont really think of the frags i have as "beautiful" per se...but of the ones i do have- Rose d'Homme by Les Parfums de Rosine-would be in ...as well as Carthusia Uomo by Carthusia
