Thread: Which fragrance "haunts" you?
Ethereal, lingering, now I can feel, now I can't, keeps me sniffing, clean, manly, simplistic yet full:
Bulgari Pour Homme.
Clinique Happy for women haunts me. The hottest chick I've ever dated/loved wore it. To bad she used it to cover the booze seeping from her pores. I still love them both, but after the knife attack, I had to cut my losses...so to speak. Thank God she never found my guns.
On a happier note, Jil Sander Background haunts me. Sometimes just opening a mini splash is all I need...OK, maybe a little dab on my finger tip. Thanks again JWS for indroducing us. Unlike the previous GF, Jil is a keeper.

Great post, Monkey. My response is based on my own quirky definitions of haunting. The first is a combination of profound beauty and deep melancholy which includes Voleur de Roses (after the numerous mentions here this will have to be my SOTD) as well as Lutens' Douce Amere and Montale's Blue Amber. The second are those scents that repel me at first but which I can't simply dismiss and consign to my "tested, don't like" drawer as I do with so many. It's probably no coincidence that some of my favorite people are those I'm initially put off by. This group of fragrances include Eau d'Hermes, Sandringham, and Blenheim Bouquet.
My current top 10: Richard James; Clive Christian No. 1 for Men; L'Artisan Voleur de Roses; Creed Aventus, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, Virgin Island Water, and Windsor; Serge Lutens Chergui and Gris Clair

Daim Blond has been haunting me for the past few days. I keep focusing on the apricot, musk and suede notes as I find them in the mix. Each wearing seems subtly different from the preceding one.
