    Default Re: Which scents chicks dig/females love/blah blah blah

    Interesting thoughts Hammy. The sense of smell is so primal! Maybe we need to pay more attention the people who smell really great to us. I can think of two dating instances where I just hated the guy's choice of fragrance & yep, we were very different people in the end.

    No proven theories here...just an interesting thought.

    Default question

    If there were one or two female fragrances that you would LOVE to smell on a man, what would they be?

    1. Asja by Fendi seems like it was created for a certain kind of subtly well-dressed, intelligent man. A great oriental for unisex wear, less obvious than Opium (but I like that feminine on confident men too).
    2. Bandit!

    Ok, so thinking of how vague and bland a description "well-dressed, intelligent man" was, I googled the phrase, found this:



    No Asja or Bandit for him--he's too cuddly, but sounds like his lady has both.

    Well, Asja is not an insta-wower. More of one that becomes nice through familiarization. But I'm wearing Asja right now, and it does seem like a cuddly, sweeter guy could pull it off, sorry to have doubted ya, Ryan Gosling, hey boy!

    *sniff* hmm:

    Currently smelling from Asja edp one hour in:
    Soft oriental--verging on floriental/classic non-girly floral, dry fruits/honey/light pipesmoke that comes and goes, and mostly a clove/carnation drying down to the oriental genre's version of a skin scent. It's a little potpourri or winelike and certainly wintery. It gets described as similar to Serge Lutens Arabie, which I can see, but that one is harsh while Asja is strong but whispery and not as daring as Arabie.

    Most are either really into the bottle and presentation of Asja or really repulsed by it. Its look seems like a riff on the extremity of "orientalism" in perfume history, kind of old Hollywood fine line between costumey silliness and elegance. For any more masculine type who would care to wear it, the spray edt (or rarer large spray edp) in the gold and black wood-like ricebowl bottle would probably smell more like a men's scent applied lightly. But if one is the type of guy who will wear edp (really this edp is difficult to apply from the tiny black flacon): best to avoid the mini black flacon edp that has black and gold stripes on the sextagonal box. Those were a promo batch, and mine had gone off due to the bad packaging and now smells weakly of soap. The plain no stripes red and black edp box with the same little black flacon inside smells better due to the packaging fitting better, likely. Those minis with the black rather than red caps seem best! Fendi's packaging was a bit inconsistent and confusing, but that's all perfume I guess ...

    cool intro to a line that i usually overlook. trying (scratching my head) to remember if i ever owned or even smelled a fendi perfume and the answer is no (for men). for women, the only one i've tried (and actually bought for my mom, back in the late 80's or early 90's) was the original fendi in the tall, rectangular bottle with black, round at the top cap. the only memory i have of it was being very 'winey' (as in 'wine like'), reminding me of a very rich, strong, opulent and spicy sonoma valley or napa valley pinot noir or zinfandel (don't know why, don't ask me). if anything, this is based on very vague memories, i would compare it to the versace l'homme vintage (the bottle with small letters, not capital letters).

    Like anomie et ivoire was saying, it would depend on the type of guy. The guy I'm refering to is the sweet tall man type.

    L'Heure Bleue or Bal a Versailles because I think they might be harder for a man to pull off. and though not as daring as BaV or LHB I could totally see a man in Vintage Antilope by Weil,

    Though in a recent interview it has been said that my future husband prefers to go scentless,[I can fix that] though I spend hours dreaming up what delightful things I'd like to spray on him. I think he'd be so sexy in a really spicy,leathery, floral.

    My eldest son wears Shalimar. The chypre loveliness of Mitsouko would be outstanding on a confident man. I'm looking forward to smelling Brad Pitt in No 5. A boyfriend from my late teens/early 20s smelt fabulous in original Rochas Femme. Diorella is interchangeable with Eau Sauvage.

    I know a womens taste in fragrances can differ from there male counterparts. So what would you like the man in your life to wear?? How would you want your man to smell? Include scents for each occassion...summer, winter, day and evening.

    Thanks

    Default Ladies, please help me choose ONE fragrance(male)

    Hello girls, I'm a 25 guy and I want to know your opinions on three fragrances.
    I've sampled a lot and narrowed it down to only three I would like to have as my signature, just choose the one that makes you weak on the knees (or if you dislike them all, please say so too):

    1. Carolina Herrera - 212 Men
    1332738196_334718712_1-Fotos-de--PERFUMES-CAROLINA-HERRERA-ORIGINAIS-LACRADOS-.jpg

    2. Abercrombie & Fitch - Fierce
    bigPhoto_0.jpg
    PS.: FIERCE is not popular at all where I live(no A&F stores in my country), so judge it only by the smell

    3. Chanel - Allure Homme Sport
    perfume-allure-homme-sport-100ml-chanel-original_MLB-O-178849932_5817.jpg

    All three are very versatile in my opinion, and I could wear them all year.
    Please, let me know which one is the best smell and compliment getter!

    Default Re: Ladies, please help me choose ONE fragrance(male)

    My choice is easy: Carolina Herrera 212 Men. Wonderful fragrance. Attractive, versatile and not very common. Good all around.

    Abercrombie&Fitch - IMO is generic, nothing special. Many folks like it.....but, very common. Not a bad thing, just...rather blah.

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport. Why not just Allure? I've smelled Allure on a few men and it smells divine!. Allure Sport, not so much.

    That's my opinion, since you asked.

    Default Re: Ladies, please help me choose ONE fragrance(male)

    Thanks Lorien! Yes, I want sincere opinions like yours lol
    Keep them coming girls, please

    EDIT:
    Oh, and about the original Allure...I don't know, I didn't care much for it. Not that appealing to me and I had the feeling that sometimes it's too strong.
    I liked the sport version better.

    Default What do women like to smell on a 30-40 something man? (Male fragrances)

    So there has been plenty of discussion of this on the male frag boards... but I thought I would take it to the source. Ladies, what fragrances do you ladies like to smell on a 30-40 something man and why?

    I guess the reason I ask is that there is clearly a diverse age range on the boards and as professional 36 year old man I was curious. I definitely feel like some fragrances are more appealing to a younger crowd just like there are some 80s powerhouses that I feel "old mannish" for a lack of a better term (this is not meant be offensive).

    When it comes to fashion, I have to admit, I cringe when I see men my age wearing True Religion jeans... that's just not right. Then again, I don't feel comfortable in tweed either. So clearly, when people say... anyone can wear anything... I get that sentiment but...
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.

    Default Re: Ladies...

    I can tell you that Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme is a definite win for me. It's a very sexy, warm, inviting scent that works wonderfully with my husband's chemistry. That's the key. You have to find something that works with YOU, because what my husband wears might smell different on you. I also love John Varvatos and Jean Paul Gaultier, too.
