    Red face need ladies advice

    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.

    Bashfully,
    Nick

    My husband wears SL Rousse, Gucci Pour Homme II, Dunhill, Cool Water (though not so much in recent years) and one of the Beckham fragrances...can't remember the name of that one. Of them all, the one I notice the most and really love to smell on him is Rousse. I wear it too sometimes.

    I know most guys try to avoid this, but take her cologne shopping with you. Taking a women shopping is asking for it I know, but at least you will get your opinion.

    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,
