    Lutens Miel de Bois. I actually do not wear it, but I saturate a scent strip with it once a week and keep it on my work desk. Whenever I need a lift I reach for it. It keeps me sane while working on the computer all day.

    It's Terre d'Hermes for me as well. I've been told it's "masculine, dirty,sexual, and earthy" on me. Blends very well with my natural scent.

    Honorable mentions to Rose 31 and Czech and Speake No. 88.

    What an interesting post. The answer could (and probably will )change rather soon, but for me it is Versace's "The Dreamer".

    I like questions that I have to contemplate. I tried DK Black Cashmere for the first time yesterday, I understand why it is so highly rated by both women and men. I've been on something of a frolic with Kiton...a sophisticated greenish celtic tweed-like scent I can wear, but can't bring myself to saying...yet.

    Curion, Heritage, Dior, Cacharel, Trussardi...some of my favorites, but I think right here right now, I'm still Dunhill Edition.

    Thanks for asking

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    The original question is unique in that our personalities can be so fluid from day to day. TODAY, however, my defining fragrance would have to be something mercuric and light/dark. It has been a bit strange today, and I'm not sure anything would qualify. I did bring out my sample of Dzing! and thought how odd it was. Just as Rome was not built in a day, neither are our lives any more predictable. Sometimes we stumble, and it hurts.

    MikeD, you are so spot on. From day to day, my fragrance that defines me changes. That is what is so absurd about the question asked, but it does cause us to pause and think. I hope tomorrow is so much better.

    Le 3eme Homme by Caron. That's 'cause I find it has a dynamic that both makes a bold statement and also speaks of more hidden, intricate inner traits. Also, it has a sweetness about it...I'm currently of the mind that that sweetness comes from not just fruit notes but also floral notes; some websites say it has jasmine, though the Caron website does not. The notes also seem to convey elements of mystery, poetry and lyricism, all connected to the core of a man, and for me that core is symbolized by its base of wood and a little musk. I sometimes wonder if we choose a fragrance to wear based on how we want to project ourselves to others, or because it speaks to a need in ourselves...maybe both. I mentioned Le 3eme Homme because I've worn it about 5 times in the last 2 weeks, so obviously it connects.

    Eau des Merveilles EDT and the Pure Perfume, especially now in the cold.

    I am about to buy my third bottle of the EDT. I have gone 2 bottles on many of my fragrances before, but I believe this will be the first time I actually made it to three!

    Yes, an interesting question to think about. I am in agreement with those that say it could change on a daily basis...mood, ambition, those around me; anything that may influence me, and as I discover new scents. For now:

    Although my alter ego wears Songes, one of the few white florals that I can wear... I'd have to say that the scent that defines me at this moment is Musc Ravageur. On my skin, it develops into distinct separate layers of danger, innocence, and sexiness. It swirls around me in an intoxicating haze. I can't get enough of this one.

    I had it 16 years ago at the age of 30. Perhaps I was not mature enough, finally I didn't like it that much. Now tried it again and I admire it.

    Different scents may showcase different parts of me, and thus will suit me at different times.

    The only scent that has come close to 'defining' for me is Mitsouko parfum, and she is still the one.

    The scent that defines me is that which wafts from my medicine cabinet when I open it, the smells and nuances of over 100 scents comingling and generating an absolutely incredible fragrance. If only a perfumer could capture this smell, they would be famous beyond description.
