    Default You're wearing WHAT? Name that scent game #8

    My SO chose a scent today that smelled light, ariy, fresh, almost watery, slightly sweet and downright wonderful. So I asked him what it was he chose and he said....

    Here are the notes, can you name that scent?

    Jan Moran writes: This 1991 scent begins with a citrus splash of bergamot and mandarin, followed by an herbal heart of rosemary and lavender. The Oriental theme develops with sandalwood, cashmere woods, and kephalis wood, while amber and vanilla add smooth subtlety to the elegant composition.

    I was shocked when he told me he was wearing this scent because on me it was barely detectable and I totally discounted it because I don't really care for this designer's other scents. It's been sitting on my swap list for the last 6 months...Now it finds a new life. Amazing how different things can smell when worn by other people!

    Ungaro I or Versus Uomo as those are the only two on your swap list with a date of 1991. Don't you hate a cheater?

    Another favorite of my SO, a huge disappointment to most of us, and perhaps one of the least successful launches in recent memory, this smells incredible on him. I picked up a bottle at TJ's last summer for $6.99 and for that price I figured "hey, I can spray my linens!"...but when he wore it, we both agreed, it was a winner.

    Top Notes
    Elemi Gum, Coriander, Myrtle, Juniper Berry, Artemisia

    Middle Notes
    Atlas Cedar, Sicilian Cypress

    Base Notes
    White Musk

    Has to be Oxygene pour Homme.

    The female version smells wonderful, never tried the male counterpart.

    I agree, it's Lanvin Oxygen Homme (2001)

    Oxygen Femme is one of my favorites too. Never tried Oxygen Homme, but agree with everybody else. :-)

    Round 3!

    I remember liking this one when I was in college, but recently upon receiving a bottle of it, I found that although I appreciated this unique scent, I just wasn't into it anymore...probably because I overdid it in college - I remember wearing this the day I fell down a flight of stairs and broke my foot - not a good association! I've never met anyone who actually wore this scent, but if I do, I'll say "You're wearing WHAT?"

    This masculine scent contains a blend of oriental notes mingle with spice, bergamot, jasmine, lavender and is accented with amber, cedar and sandalwood. Topping off with final notes of vanilla and oakmoss.

    good luck!

    Round 4

    A friend of mine was wearing this one night while we were out playing pool. He smelled great but I wouldn't normally give him much credit for fragrance choices, so I thought about what this could be...it was light and fresh, but not sporty...slightly powdery with something almost apple-like about it. It had a crystalline, almost watery edge to it, very unusual to men's perfumery. I assumed it must be something from a department store and began to review a list of possible scents in my mind, but when I asked he explained it had been a gift from his mother after she returned from a cruise to the islands. He told me the name and I said "You're wearing WHAT?"

    Top note : Lemon, Mandarin, Cassis, Tarragon
    Middle note : Ginger, Mace, Geranium, Carnation
    Base note : Cedar, Sandal, Tonka, Moss

    but, depending on which website you check, you might also find the following notes:

    Blackcurrant, Bergamot, Galbanum and Clove. Middle notes of Vetiver, Jasmine and Cedar. Basenotes are Amber, Labdanum and the ever popular Musk.

    Anyhow, don't get confused between this 90's masterpiece and its more modern version...

    Round 5

    The other day I was standing behind a friend on a train station escalator when a blast of wind blew through the passageway. I immediately recognized the scent that he was wearing but couldn't quite place it. It was a classic to be sure. I wasn't very taken with it, but my friend is a little older and tends to love his 80's power scents. I was thinking Azarro or Van Cleef, but after he told me what it was, and I was shocked cause I hadn't thought about this scent in ages, I had to ask, "You're wearing WHAT?" It was something I had first smelled in the mid-80's!

    Top Notes
    Bergamot, Aldehyde, Cardamom, Mandarin

    Middle Notes
    Carnation, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Cedar, Sandal, Rose, Orris

    Base Notes
    Vanilla, Moss, Musk, Tonka, Amber, Benzoin, Leather
