    Default LITERALLY, the frag you couldn't be without

    If you could have your natural body odor smell like one fragrance, which would it be and why?

    Personally, I think it would be Bvlgari PH.

    My logic: if it's your BO, its going to be stronger in the summer and during physical activities, so it ought to work in summer. In winter, it would theoretically be subdued, and it would be easy to layer something heavier over it (and I think Bvlgari makes a good layering frag).

    Whadayathink?

    Sad to say - with A*men being my signature, I cannot stand it after a late night out or a loooong and late week-end, with Monday on it's way.

    The only choice would be Carolina Herrera for Men - fresh, long-lasting, subtle (on me) and VERY in your face (for others).

    Hermes Belami. But, I think paintrman with his Kingdom and I would be all by ourselves with our potent BO.

    Seriously, though, I'd probably have to pick Chanel PM or maybe even Bois des Iles.

    This his past Tuesday I decided this scent was a personal fav:

    Carolina Herrera Herrera for Men

    The drydown, on me anyway, completely captures my attention. The chemistry on me seems just right. Wow! I hope everyone who wafts it when around me thinks it is as nice as I do. One spray on my chest, and an intense topnote slowly becomes a fantastic kaleidoscope of scent that ends up smooth and delicious and lasts 8-10 hours.

    Of course I agree completely with Mr. Good Life, here, however, for the fun of this question, I think I would answer Musc Ravageur in its oil form. The scent is light , musky, natural , with a bit of sweetness to it, and could be layered if need be. I find this in the oil form to be unobtrusive and natural, and close to the skin.
    Ironically, I do not own this!

    If I could have a fragrance in ADDITION to my own body odor, rather than REPLACING it, my answer would be different. Right now my top two are Tabac Blond by Caron and Eugenie by Creed. They each seem to complement my yin/yang essence quite nicely for me.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    It seems Bvlgari PH and Terre d'Hermes are the two most popular choices. Have not sampled the Bvlgari (guess I need to). I was going to go for the Terrre d'Hermes, but to be different I will opt for Opium pour Homme.

    Default Re: LITERALLY, the frag you couldn't be without

    I had said Léonard pour Homme. Sorry, but -- the more I think about it -- I have to change that and say Bois de Portugal instead. (I really think that this one is -- right up there with JHL -- as close to a Holy Grail as I've come to date.)

    Léonard pour Homme's definitely a "Top 10" kinda scent for me, you bet, but I really think that BdP is the one frag I would most hate to be without.

    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."
