Thread: looking for romantic sent
I curently love PI by Givenchy. But im looking for more romantic frags to add to my set.
The Dreamer, Ungaro III, and Zino fit perfectly under this category.
K-six is gone, but Saint-Six is his holy rebirth.

Peggy: "Right now, we have to get to the mental institution. Something terrible has happened."
Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."
Fr. Sordid Lives: The Series
"Live, live, live! Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death."
Envy is a good one and pretty safe, you might also enjoy Jaipur homme or Opium Homme. These are among my favorite orientals
If you really want to lay it on: Colors for Men by Alexander Julian, an extremely flowery oriental.
Very sexy and luxurious: Musc Ravageur. You should love it for the strong vanilla but the musk takes this way beyond PI IMHO. Probably the best choice.
Cacharel pour homme is a personal fave, warm nutmeg and woods, for cuddling up by the fireplace.
Burberry Brit is an allrounder which works romantically, too. fresh on top, powdery, rosy, vanilly in a cheerful way.
Caron Third Man is very rich, sweet and powerful, quite impressive when applied with care, but for special ladies only
Costume National Scent Intense for blind dates meant to culminate in kinky sex
Serge Lutens Arabie or Ambre Sultan or Fumerie Turque if your date is into dates and belly-dancing and all things oriental.

Well I'm 20 and this is my favorite category of scents, so here are my favorites (Pi got me into fragrances, so I feel we may share similar tastes).
Zino - Read a lot about how it was an old-school scent and may not appeal to everybody. While it may not appeal to everybody, it's an awesome, sweet, mysterious fragrance that my friend said was something a sexy pirate would wear.
Lolita Lempicka - Healthy dose of licorice and violet. If you like sweet (guessing you do with Pi), and you like licorice, this may be a favorite.
Rochas Man - Girls love chocolate, and this has a wonderful chocolate note mixed with coffee. The lavendar can be a bit of a turn off, but my most complimented scent from girls.
Ungaro III - Another somewhat mysterious scent that smells more like refined gentleman. Would be perfect for going to a "cultured" event with your significant other.
Dreamer - Very similar aura to Ungaro III, but completely different scents.
Black Jeans - This is my dark scent. The spice reminds me of something conjures up images of dead flowers in a fire (don't ask). Very good for looking mysterious and "bad boy" to this nose.
Body Kouros and M7 - My "cozy up by a fireplace and watch a movie when it's cold out" fragrances. Both are very warm and smokey, but BK is a sweeter burnt sugar scent, where M7 is an almost leathery powder scent. Both awesome.
Well, I'm not sure exactly what makes a scent romantic, but my GF often seems a little extra frisky when I wear one of the following:
YSL M7 and Kouros
Jacomo de Jacomo
Chanel Antaeus and Egoiste
TBS Woody Sandalwood perfume oil
But you can't count on any particular scent appealing to any particular individual. For example, my current GF is pretty indifferent to Azzaro Visit, but it was a favorite of an ex. And of course, you can't count on a fragrance to attract anyone who wouldn't be attracted to you anyway.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
