    Default What to wear to dinner?

    I'm hoping to get some suggestions from my fellow members: I am going out for a romantic dinner with mon amour on Saturday evening. Sort of a semi-casula bistro place. I would like some ideas of what to wear, perfume-wise. I don't like perfumes to compete with the aromas of the meal, of course, but I'm also not crazy about really foody scents like Angel. My wardrobe is posted here, if you take a look and give me some ideas I'd be so pleased.

    Thank you!

    Dear Pellen, I haven't has a chance to smell many of the SL that you have but I think the Christian Dior - Miss Dior Cherie would be quite nice to wear in this occassion. It is not too over powering, fruitty and has a touch of strawberry which makes it almost comparable to a strawberry sorbet. I have worn it a few times and got compliments from people saying it is an adorable, bubbly, likeable scent.

    I like your collection!:

    Let's see, I would probably wear any of these three to dinner:

    Prada
    Fumerie Turque
    Daim Blond

    Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger.
    There is really nothing to be said about it.
    It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

    My pick would be Bois Farine, Bois et Fruits or Bois et Musc. Have a great time!

    I see you have SL's Fleurs D'Oranger. That would be a great choice!

    I would go with your Jo Malone fragrance. It is suitably
    herby and citrussy to blend in with the food.

    I second the Daim Blond.

    Something un-foody I'd suggest!
    I pick À la Nuit.

    Although I see you have given it 3 stars, so perhaps you are better off wearing something you are more crazy about.

    I second (or third, or fourth) the Prada. I also think Very Irresistible is a deeply romantic scent.

    I say Spark by Liz Claiborne. I love that scent, but I got "seller crazy" and put it up on Ebay, now I miss it ...

    "...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."
