    Default Guess that fragrance (true story)

    I extended my arm and asked him to smell. He leaned in to take a quick whiff and said...
    "Mmmm....it smells like silly putty. It smells good"

    I wanted to spank him after he compared my fragrance to silly putty.
    However, I couldn't because he did say it smelled good.

    Can you guess the silly putty frag?

    Can you give a hint if it's niche or mass-market?
    I've heard of Play-Doh comparisons before but never silly putty.

    I'll give you a few notes, but be fair and try not to look it up. It's a pretty hot frag these days.

    Jasmine, Moss, Vetiver and the note that may give it away is a love it or hate note type of note. I can't give you that one just yet.

    This is gonna drive me NUTZ because more than one of the BN reviews of one of my best loved frags mentions a Playdoh note and I CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH ONE IT IS.

    Will stay patiently tuned in.

    Isn't play-doh the same as silly putty?? I'm sure this isn't the one you're talking about, but I'll say it anyway: L'Heure Bleue has a sort of play-doh smell.

    From the discussion going on here on BN I remember someone mentioned JPG classique and Boucheron Trouble.Probably not it,though

    Thanks for this post (you can see I am keeping a close eye! :bounce.

    Playdoh and silly Putty are not the same (not that it matters except smell-wise - and they don't smell the same either) but I scampered off to the directory because LB is one of my faves and the last six reviews don't mention Silly Putty or PlayDoh - which I was, in error, looking for - but rather medicine! Perhaps I should have gone further back?

    Give that man a medal! He is so right!

    Piguet Fracas is very meh! - almost clean on my skin, even in the parfum!
    I bet it will be nicer in summer heat but it's really not worth the wait - for me.

    Now I have to go sniff some silly putty, because I don't recall it smelling like Fracas. If he is right, I may rub some silly putty over my body.


    I'm off for some silly putty.

    I don't get silly putty at all in Fracas. I would have gone with the Hypnotic Poison/Castelbejac answer. Interesting.

    Wow. Fracas. You chemistry must be very true. I wish it smelled like that on me. It turns into wet white flowers in fridge water when I wear it.

    I was going to guess Jour de Fete.

    Just wait, one lovely Basenoter from Norway will come and smack you all, and it will not be the ruler, I promise! :wave: Who would have thought Fracas? On me it is intense yet mellow, sexy and with dignity, and perfect for the evenings after hottest summer days.

    I love Fracas on summer evenings. It smells nice on me, too. Very "clean," I'm told. Actually, though, I'm tired of it - but that is a different thing. Yes, chemistry is certainly interesting!

    Fun riddle.
