    Default Help need intoxicating/seductive scent that..

    Help,
    I need an intoxication/seductive scent that is not cloying or in your face, like
    Angel, Le Male or AMEN cologne by Thierry Mugler or any others of the same.

    There has to be something that is intoxication/seductive that is not fruity or sweet or chocolate or coffee smelling out there.

    I want to be able to wear this out on a date, when we go out to eat or to the movies.

    Any suggestions?

    Fahrenheit (lightly applied 2 hrs before a date)
    Azzaro ph (the same)
    Antaeus
    M7 (sweet BUT seductive)

    Hope this helps..

    Serge Lutens' - Chergui. If this doesn't put you both under a spell, nothing will.

    I would suggest Dior Homme. Sweet, but very aura-like and subtle. A great date scent.

    I also suggest Chanel Egoiste. Also rather sweet, but it includes beautiful rose and sandalwood notes.

    Ambre Sultan by Serge Lutens - to me, it is not in-your-face at all, but on others (here at BN) it is...test on yourself first.

    I have to agree with the suggestion of "Vera Wang". I got it because my girlfriend loved it so much. Initially I was very skeptical because of all the bad reviews of the longevity of Vera Wang but I gave it a try and found I easily get 6 hours and usually 8. It is a fragrance which I feel can be used year around, best used in the evening. I get VERY good results on dates I use it on.

    Kingdom - It's sexy, spicey and definitely seductive. The great thing about it is that it's not cloying.

    Hmm..."intoxicating" and "more lighter" are two descriptors that generally don't belong in the same sentence. That said, it's all about how you control the application. Both Costes and Idole de Lubin can be applied very light indeed, with superb effects! So can, for that matter, just about anything.

    My SOTD day today: L'Air du Desert Marocain . Yes, its price went up recently but this is 'magic' in a bottle!

    Thumbs up Re: Help need intoxicating/seductive scent that..

    Based on a recent purchase and several subsequent applications I would definitely recommend Jean Patou Patou pour Homme if you are willing to pay the price.

    It is available in decant from several Basenoters and if you really search, by the bottle for the equivalent of your first born. It is a discontinued (WHAT were they THINKING?!) item. The drydown is subtle yet amazing, and very much, to my nose anyway, a masculine scent of the first magnitude that quietly insists: "c'mere ladies..".

    I second: Idole de Lubin, Envy, Egoiste

    And add: Black Cashmere, Basala

    In the same vain as Patou pH, Sander Man Pure and Maxim's pour Homme fit the bill.

    Rive Gauche. Masculine, noble and confidant. Completely different than anything out there except maybe Barbasol shaving cream!
