    This one always gives me hysterics and makes me wonder if there are scents that could be nicknamed Twit, Twat or Ponce...

    Funny you should ask!

    CSP Fruits Sauvages was always "fruity savages", and likewise their Lait Sucre was "baby spew".

    Actually- no. Nicknames for people only it seems. Never even thought about it before. (ugggah- boring, boring, boring....)
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    What I'm after are nicknames for scents you love and wear.

    I'm sorry tigrushka. I should have explained more. Yes, I do own and wear these scents occassionally, although I can't really say that I particularly LOVE them. When people ask me what I'm wearing I usually reply by saying "poseur juice". I mean it only in jest. Cheers.

    OK, thanks for clearing that up!

    It's just that I wanted nicknames, not "labelling"...

    I have a very complicated method for organizing my fragrances and my 'call scheme' , loosely based on the Dewey Decimal System, is equally complex. It would easiest to explain some of the vetivers:

    Azzaro Pure Vetiver * * * * * * * * *Pure Vet
    Comme des Garcons Vettiveru *Com Vet
    L'Occitane Vetyver * * * * * * * * * Las Vet
    Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental * *Ore Vet
    Vetiver Annick Goutal * * * * * * * Ag Vet
    Vetiver Carven * * * * * * * * * * * Car Vet
    Vetiver De Puig * * * * * * * * * * ** Pig Vet
    Vetiver Guerlain * * * * * * * * * ** * Grr Vet

    So there is no way for the average human being to fathom the depths of my fragrant labyrinth. Which is why I am hesitant to hostess the Basenotes Female Fragrance Discussion Slumber Party. Sorry, I can't have a pride of lionesses tearing about looking for Aqua Allegoria _________ when it isn't even filed under 'A'. (If you posted any comments about bras yesterday, you are not getting an invite to the party, buster.)

    I may have to hire a 'librarian' and teach him my system. And we haven't even gotten to the ones in Ig-Pay Atin-Lay.

    Fendi Uomo-----"Offendy"....and it can be, just not for me.....

    Nicknames aren't necessarily abbreviations, for example I call M7 Mmmmmmmmm7...
