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

    Well, bernat if he was really that smart he'd stil be your bf, wouldn't he?

    *sigh*

    " There is no cure for love, except to love even more. "--- French proverb.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I think that, as this thread continues to grow and spiral gloriously out of control with clueless male questions on what chicks dig----er . . . on what compliments an elegant man's wardrobe, I feel it my duty to revive a thread originally posted in the Male Fragrance Forum.


    BABE MAGNETS AND THEIR MISSION STATEMENTS:

    ( I mean guys, what kind of woman do you really want to attract?)

    1. Quorum, Pino Sylvestre, Insense Ultramarine--- These smell so bad she's got to be a masochist. Beat her, whip her, make her write bad checks . . .

    2. Muscs Kublai Khan--Cut to the chase, you only want her if she's an erotically frenzied wildcat

    3. Kourus--But If she likes this atrocity, she's even more perverted than you imagined. Run awaaaay!

    4. Aramis, Brut, Drakkar Noir, Old Spice, Aqua Velva, Azzarro---Her dad probably wore it at some point. One can only hope that she still wants to sit on his lap.

    5. Royal English Leather, Dunhill '34, Patou, Versailles--- If she mentions dad wore these, the family's loaded. Consider eloping to the chapel of Elvis in Vegas.

    6. Roma Uomo, 3rd Man, Tuscany, Vintage Tabarome, ---You are unapologetically masculine, she'll rip your clothes off, NOW!

    7. Le Male---Or queer eye for the straight guy, the bottle design episode. You rejoice in your feminine side.

    8. Jicky, Jaipur, JHL, M7, Chergui, Musc Ravageur---And you do so with finesse.

    9. Diptyque (any) And so, you could buy a boutique together and live happily ever after.

    10. Coty (any): Except you've just been evicted from your trailer park. Good! See if she comes through for you and lets you move in rent free.

    11. Rochas Man: Or A*Men redux. A vast improvement. Still it's so "chocolate shake" that you might attract jailbait. Check I.D. And have a good lawyer handy.

    12. Piper Nigrum: Redundant if you're a waiter in an Italian restaurant, but otherwise a masterpiece of seduction by Lorenzo Villarosi. Think of it !

    You'll smell like a wonderful dish of linguini with olive oil. How many millions of women want to break their diet? Can't miss.

    Default I need your help ladies..(17 year old)

    I've tried a lot of cologne....but I barely get any compliments from my girl friends.... I'm only 17 in my senior year..and a couple of dances are coming up, and I want a frag that gives me more then just a compliment. Maybe I just need more time experimenting w/ more cologne, but im on sucha tight budget that I cant afford to keep buying blind. I know, you're going to say "Go to Macy's and test the frags out"...and I do, but I don't know if girls would like it on me. I want something that really attracts their noses....just how womens perfume (Even victoria secret sprays) attract me noes, almost instantly after applying. I know girls like Vanilla, and floral scents..but I have no clue on what to buy.

    Please gimme some suggestions. I would really appreciate it!

    Here are some of the colognes i own/tried (and just don't work for me):

    -Clinique Happy (Does not last long....)
    -Hugo Boss Bottled (TOOO SWEEET)
    -Kenneth Cole: Reaction (headache...too much apple goin on)
    -Very Sexy for Him (Not quite sure on this one)
    -Swiss Army/Swiss Army Altitude (^ Ditto)
    -Dunhill X-Centric (I returned it, but I instantly miss the scent)
    -Aqua Di Gio (sorta gave me a headache)
    -Coolwater (Dont wanan smell like every dude in my school)

    I want something more sophisticated, yet easy on the nose..and will instantly give that "You smell realllllllllly nice/yummy)"..

    I'm not a woman, but I think you should check out Carlos Santana for men. It was my ex g/f's favorite mens scent (and we've smelled quite a few). It's sweet and spicy - cinnamon, tonka bean, a bit of lavender. It almost smells "edible" without being cloying or too heavy like say, A*men. Actually, if you are out for compliments, try out A*men too. Chocolate + coffee. Women either love it or hate it, but the ones who love it really REALLY love it.

    I would highly recommend Armani Code, its got a very classy subtle citrus scent.. Not too overpowering, smells great with great longevity...

    Also while you're at it you might want to give Paul Smith London and Ralph Polo Black...

    Boucheron's Jaipur Homme is very, very good. If you could get a decant of Malle's Musc Ravageur that would also be excellent. These are pretty mature fragrances, but if you applied them cautiously to your neck and chest, I think you could pull them off at a dance. Another nice thing about light application is that your dance partner would need to be close to smell them well--and they are both so delicious she would want to smell them again after the first whiff. Good luck at your dances, relax and have a good time!
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    See Mackz, 1st welcome. I'll have to put on my Mama hat on right now and say you should be worrying about school and not these fast behind girls ROFL!! OK I'm taking off my Mama Hat now

    What you have to do is find the cologne that works best for "YOU". Cause what the next girl likes might not exactly smell good on "YOU". That may be why you haven't gotten any compliments. You are going to have to do what many of us do and love to do and that's just try everything you can get your hands on. You should get one of your female friends to go shopping with you while you try on some different colognes. You have to realize that even those colognes that may smell fab on you may smell horrid to the next person. Just make sure you bathe well and often.

    See, most of us wear perfume for ourselves and not to attract others. Let me give you 2 tips to live by and grow on.......

    First of all, you should be filling up your head with all the knowledge you can find. There is nothing more attractive than an intelligent man, and if he smells good, then it's even better. Smellin good may work for you now, but as you get older and start looking for "WOMEN", you better have way more going for you than some good smelling cologne. Honey, colognes will come and go, but no one can take away what you know. Knowledge will get you farther than any cologne. Coming here is a start. So, you're doing good because you are looking for knowledge.

    Secondly, you need to get you at least one BFF (best female friend). I have a BFF and a BMF. What's great about having a real close friend of the opposite sex is that they can give you that female perspective. My best male friend and I have the greatest relationship. We have helped each other out and have been friends for more than 13 years. He gives me the male side of things and I give him the female side of things. See, your female friend can do that for you. You don't have to try and get with every female you came across LOL!! Save some of them for friends. It will benefit you in the long run. Trust me.

    Now, go try........

    Angel for men/Cologne.....Theirry Mugler
    Gucci Pour Homme

    Girls like guys who smell good, but women like guys who smell good and have money. Now, go study all you can, cause the more you know, the more money you can make. The more money you make, the more you smell good. Catch my drift.....Real Talk

    One time I actually sniffed around a man. He was a superior and bigwig at work, but he smelled so good that I just didn't care. I asked him what he was wearing and he said Pleasures for men. Yummy.
    I agree with the suggestion for Armani Code, that's a good one too.

    Hey guys, I appreciate all the suggestions!!!

    Since now that I will be going to the Philippines (from dec 21st to January 9th)...do you think they'll have real cologne there? or will it be all fake? I'm asking this because, I wonder if it'll be cheaper? (I Hope the hot weather has no effect on the cologne).

    Regardless, I Will be purchasing a bunch of cologne that you ladies/gents have suggested.

    My first purchase will be Platinum Egioste, Armani Code, YSL M7 (MY dad has this..and he never uses it but he barely has any left), and Ill check out the Carlos Santana.

    Quarry: I'll do another update when I actually buy these and ask what girls think about em'. (But i'm thinking about bringing my friend (Girl) to help see which scent she likes. I've been too busy with school and other extracurricular activities to actually go out and buy these.

    I appreciate it I knowww..it's just I want to be complimented sometimes, because I never do and I usually compliment a lot of girls on how good they smell. I Understand that being intelligent is important, having money is good and cologne is just a supplement that will bring the most out of you. I seriously need to get one of my friends to go cologne hunting with me ahha.....I'll be checkin out everything on your list... I've already smelt Issey Miyake and it smells unique.... Dreamer by Versace sounds nice

    Another thing, My mom recently got Very Sexy for Him for a present (it came with other VS perfumes) and she gave it to me, and to tell you the truth it smells very generic and this is not what I want. Also, you have to spray it x100 for it to smell like anything.

    There's a new Kenneth Cole that my daughter just bought for her boyfriend for Christmas. He is 19, and as it's her choice, I thought it might be worth checking out. It's called RSVP. I think it's gorgeous.

    For my 21 year old son, I bought Paul Smith Story, and it smells amazing on him. If you're able to try them out it would be best, to see how your skin reacts to these.

    My head doesn't turn when I'm out with my husband, I still think he's the most attractive guy around. I think many of the newer men's scents in dept stores smell just as bad as the women's. Synthetic clone or head space notes are a huge turn off. Many of the so-called better lines smell just horrible to me, now. I know people complain about reviewers who use the word "bug spray," but if that's what you smell like to me, what it is.

    I like Eau Sauvage, Orange Leaves by L'Occitane and the original Burberry for Men. Citrusy, woody or florals like lavender on men. Not a fan of musk, unless it comes from a natural source like the musk rose, ambrette seed, etc.

    HA! We posted Eau Sauvage at the same time, kewart.

    i have been dating this girl awhile and I like her very much...i have not heard her ever exclaim that she likes any thing that i wear, but i have never heard her complain either. I always think she smells wonderful, but i was wondering if there are any frags that your husbands or boyfriends wear that you just cant get enough of? I know there will be varying answers on this, but any help is greatly appreciated....i asked the guys too, but i would rather a womans perspective since im dating a woman! I realize there is a sticky on a similar topic, but i wanted some more personal responses as to my particular issue. Thank you.

    I know this has probably been mentioned several times, but <i>all</i> of the girls I know go absolutely crazy for VERY SEXY FOR HIM - VICTORIA'S SECRET

    Of course, A&F'S FIERCE is also a huge hit. They may not be 'quality' fragrances as some might say, but if you're looking for a uhm, blast, I highly recommend these.

    COOL WATER by DAVIDOFF . . . a possible choice as well.

    I recently got my boyfriend his very first Cologne. It is Guess Man, which I believe has been discontinued now? (that's why I had such a hell of a time finding it!) I've owned the female version of Guess (juice is a purple/pink colour) and I love it + it's the only one he has ever complimented me on. I smelt Guess Man and was in LOVE!! And I just love it on him too! It's a great, fresh scent and can be subtle or strong depending on how much is sprayed on. Guess Man is definitely my turn on men's cologne.

    Lol, I've only read the first two pages, but I see all these women complaining about it not being the scent but being the person, but on many a time, i've had girls that I really don't know, come up to me and start a conversation with me about what i'm wearing (Fragrance-wise, lol)

    But, I do agree with a lot of you, there isn't a certain scent, everything smells different to everyone, what is ones nose candy, is another's nasal horror (especially in the case of certain fragrances *cough* Issey Miyake *cough* ) Just try something different, and it's sure to get attention !

    The two greatest loves of my life (one I married, one I didn't) both adored Armani Eau Pour Homme. The problem with that for me is that their ex-boyfriends wore it, so I refused to wear it. (The fact that I don't really like it didn't help.)

    Givenchy Pi is divine. Also Old Spice. (I know, I know...) I just can't get enough of catching a whiff of Old Spice on a man.

    Old Spice is a very nice scent...it is the quintessential mens fragrance. I like it also.

    I love:-

    Givenchy Very Irresistible:- the dry down on it is divine!
    Rive gauche
    YSL L'homme
    Dior Homme
    Issey Miyake's L’eau Bleue D’issey
    Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir Cologne:- My favorite! It is absolutely gorgeous!

    I also love Old Spice! My dad wears this one very well! I don't think everyone can pull that one off though.

    I've yet to smell any of the niche fragrances - but I will be going with dh soon to sniff out the Creed's etc!

    Ladies, thank you for putting in your two cents worth all over this thread, there are some great insights here...

    the best one being "it's not the scent, it's the man..."

    Gentlemen, you have asked the wrong questions in these threads...

    the scent that chicks dig/females love/ blah blah blah...

    is the wrong one to wear...

    I'd be willing to bet a decant of anything in my wardrobe that you can't find a woman on this board that had her mind made up sexually about a guy because of the frag he was wearing,

    I'd also bet that almost any woman here isn't totally turned on by a guy who exudes power, mastery of himself and the confidence that accompanies these things.

    Get a scent that makes YOU feel on top of the world. As long as it's not something that stinks so bad that it drives her off, it will likely be just fine.

    There is no universal scent that will make women flock to you. What WILL make women flock to you is when you radiate confidence. THAT is the universal aphrodisiac.

    If you can't walk into a room carrying yourself with the authority of someone any woman would want to be with, they're never going to get close enough to you to wonder what smells so good anyhow...

    Wear the frag that makes your spine a little straighter and makes you hold your chin a bit higher and that's the one that'll work for you.

    could be Jacomo de Jacomo

    Now there you go being reasonable. Unless you're going to tell me about a magic elixir that will get Tina Fey to instantly fall in love with me, I don't to hear any advice that would require effort on my part. (Tina, if you're listening, please return my calls!)

    This (thaifighter's words, not my unnecessary Tina rant) should probably be moved to the front page of this thread and copied and pasted on to any future inquiries about what women like or how to attract or get women. And possibly pm'd to every male who joins basenotes, just to cut down on some of the repeat questions.

    Strange how advice that is so basic and obvious isn't obvious to everyone.

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

    Only Tina Fey?
    Well, I admire monogamous men, though I'll never understand them.
    Logic indeed. Of course women are attracted by the confidence we exude!
    Ya bunch of wimps!
    Reverse the situation.
    Think of what turns US on in women when we first meet them; is it merely their scent? Of course not!
    Ye shallow ones.
    It's their nubility, their curves, their legs, their hair, their bedroom eyes, their sultry siren voice, the way they carry themselves as they saunter lasciviously towards -----um---.never mind.

    And what's all is this about: " I really like it when my husband wears x "?
    Who cares??
    We want to know what would make you cheat on your husband!!
    For crying out loud! Don't you know anything about men?
    ---
    BTW in case you haven't checked. there's a new thread now on the men's forums entitled:
    " Which scent gets you the most female compliments? "
    Not quite as many responses as this thread--yet; but we're getting there.
    Omnia Vanitas ( or is it omnia clueless?)
    Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all?
    -------
    I propose we merge both threads. We need to understand each other better
    Or at least have a good laugh . . .

    Cheers,
