    Default Naughty naughty bad girl scents

    I thought we could have a female version of the thread on the guys' side about Bad Boys and Frags they would wear.

    What perfume does a bad girl wear?

    I vote for Tabac Blond and Mitsouko (you can see she is winning me over)
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. 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." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    I've always called Bandit my "don't jack with me, guys" fragrance. I feel a little bitchy wearing it, sort of like tall black boots with pointy toes bitchy.

    yes, I know what you mean...and I just realized I am wearing a little of both Tabac Blond AND Mitsouko, which seems so very wrong and therefore must make me a BAD GIRL at least tonight

    I don't know why...but Hugo Deep Red smells a bit naughty to me. And it kinda creeps me out that my mom likes it so much, lol.

    And I think Ambre Sultan is pretty raunchy and bad-ass (in the good way!!!).

    Bvlgari Black kinda teeters on "bad girl" for me...but IMHO it says more "I'm dark and mysterious...but I still like to get close to people!"

    Bal à Versailles must be one of the ultimate bad girl scents.
    Also, chanel's Antaeus (wich is promoted towards men but i think any woman that wears such a scent could be deemed as "bad girl", wich makes her -to me at least- very interesting!)

    I also second Bulgari Black...sort of a Biker Girl frag, and the Antaeus, which I tried to wear, but alas, I guess I am not quite BAD enough! Love to sniff it though.

    Zagorsk. It has an unsettling effect on people, and when I wear it, I've noticed a distinct shift to a very low-key, but unmistakable bad-ass mode, almost as though some sort of sub-sonic frequency kicked in: inaudible, yet very, very tangible.

    Makes me feel sort of like Jaime King as Bad Girl

    I don't think I even own anything "bad girl"! Unless you count Dior Addict, which makes my husband think of sex.

    I think Fracas is for a bad girl. Or maybe Hypnotic Poison. I can't wear either of them successfully, though.

    Maybe wearing something intended for men like Timbuktu is a bad-girl thing.

    Oh, how deeply charmig frags you are choosing for naughty, naughty bad girls scents...

    Some of them mentioned are among my absolut favourites!

    I guess you mean sensual with naughty, naughty bad...

    I have a frag I find sort of mean, and that is Gucci EdP. I get a feeling of a person only thinking about herself from that frag. But you don´t mean mean with bad, I guess...

    Please, correct me if I am wrong.

    When I was younger, and I was truly a "bad girl," I wore Opium, Obsession, and Amarige. (just to name a few) Now that those days are far behind me, and I don't feel so much the "bad girl" as the "been there, done that, girl" I like some of the same ones, but with a different attitude wearing them. I am currently looking for something different than the same one's I've had in my collection. So, I can't say until I update my stuff.

    My favorites in this category are: Boudoir, Nirmala, Agent Provocateur, Youth Dew Amber Nude, Ambre Passion, Hypnotic Poison... hmmm perhaps even Gucci Rush.

    But now I really just have to give Bandit a fair chance on my skin .

    I forgot to add: La Perla to my little list .

    I'll second (or third or fourth or whatever) Bandit. It smells like marijuana. Like your clothes after a big rock concert. Like a fresh bag of buds, minty and peppery. (No I don't partake of the weed anymore.)

    Also Cuir de Russie, but in an earthy way, like, "I just had a roll in the hay down at the stable with a cowboy wearing leather chaps and chewing tobacco." Yee-haw.

    Also Cuir d'Arabie, as in latex and cigarette smoke, then harsh leather, and (who can say?) mint. So Dominatrix in latex, chewing Wrigley's Spearmint with a lit skig hanging out of her mouth.

    Kingdom, for a big case of B.O. that you have to keep sniffing because there is some divine sandalwood and a little chypre rose in there. Like a great-looking guy who refuses to wear deodorant.

    Dzing, because it smells like a circus floor of sawdust and animal poop. OMG how long does it take for an elephant to pee? Lookit that...

    However... Muscs Koublai Khan and Musc Ravageur are my go-to bad-gal scents. They make me feel like an Angelina Jolie-type bad girl.

    slightly OT here, but frags that are SUPPOSED to smell like cannabis (pg coze, fresh cannabis) smell more like patchouli to me...none of them capture that, as you said, minty, herbal smell. not quite eau d'bongwater.

    let's see... what do bad girls wear? exhibitionist-type bad girls like to make an impression; they get into momma's perfume cabinet and are wearing paloma picasso! but then what if you are a sneaky bad girl...maybe something smokey - fumerie turque!
    Seeking: woods patchouli fresh tuberose

    I love this thread!

    From my wardrobe, I'd pick Kingdom and Bvlgari Black. OH says that Daim Blond smells "slutty" but I just don't get that. Especially as I wore it for my wedding (at least he loves it). On the other hand AP Maitresse was my honeymoon scent and that did the job, even though it seems just as at home in the office. The two I sampled that were so bad girl I couldn't even keep them on my wrist were the original AP and Vivienne Westwood Boudoir.

  33. #33

    Default Re: Naughty naughty bad girl scents

    I concur about Bandit - just tried that today. It's an interesting scent, given that it was released in 1944. It smells modern.

    And AP smells like sweaty knickers. I wouldn't wear it.

    I tried another couple of so called naughty fragrances today. Tom Ford Black Orchid smelled interesting at first, with hints of rose and chocolate, but dried down into a rather uninteresting patchouli.

    Alexander McQueen Kingdom, which has been described as crotch-like or even like a whore's armpits, but to me was a very inoffensive citrus. A sheep in wolf's clothing.

    SL Chypre Rouge and Fumerie Turque could definitely be described as bad girl scents. I can't see anyone sweet or innocent wearing either of these. A lot of people don't seem to like Chypre Rouge but it works on me.

    Cool Re: Naughty naughty bad girl scents

    In this dirty old---------er, I mean this gentleman's opininon, I take grave exception to the suggestion that Mrs. Emma Peel would wear Bandit.

    Bandit is for:

    a) Waking up in a strange bed, not knowing how you got there.
    b) Waking up with a monster of a hangover.
    c) Waking up in a sleazy motel room.
    d) Waking up unemployed-----and answering a help wanted ad for a dominatrix.
    e) Waking up with masochistic fantasies about Nazis tying you down and interrogating you.
    f) Waking up and joining the SS, cuz you dig those leather boots.
    g) Waking up because the smoke alarm went off-----your cigars set the bed on fire..
    g) Waking up to watch an old Marlene Dietrich movie, preferably " The Blue Angel."
    h) All of the above.

    Imho. Bulgari Black would be Emma's scent.

    In fact, I recall one particularly brilliant review here in BN which stated that Emma would wear it, while she counseled Steed to keep his bowler on in times of stress, and watch out for diabolical masterminds. Damn! I wish I could remember who wrote that..

    But why quibble? You're all way too bad, and badly need to be spanked.

    On my "bad girl" days, I wear masculine scents like Guerlain Vetiver or Creed Tabarome. I think it throws people off a little bit and that gives me the upper hand! If I had to choose a more "femme" frag, I would choose Musc Ravageur although that says "mysterious" a little more than "BAD"....Tabac Blonde may be an excellent choice for some people but on me it just smells like bug spray--and that's just stinky.

    Hmmm...I don't have a 'naughty' scent. My Ambre Sultan reminds me of a Catholic mass (I wish I could shake that image, but when I smell it on me, I just get reminded of the incense from the mass...)...and all my perfumes tend to be either floral or chypre. I don't generally do orientals (other than AS)...so I've decided I need to find a naughty frag. I keep reading about Tabac Blond...never have sniffed that one. I don't think the shops in my local area stock it. I'm going to have to spend a day in London sampling pretty soon...

    Had to think about that for a day.
    I fully agree upon Vetiver which i love and Gucci Rush, which makes a great gothic seducer that lets your lover ponder about dread or delight. Or the one that would even make my beloved ironic-iconic Bettie Page hysterically shudder of lust: Fracas. And the great femme Tabac Blond. Even can agree upon the heavenly latex-ish Bulgari Black, but...

    Le Baiser du dragon is it for me.

    Equally intimidating and voluptuous.
    Wild woods and the power to fly...

    Vetiver, neroli, patchouli and an exhausted lover's breath breath-like vanilla base that couldn't be softer...


    Another one came to my mind: imagine a mediterranean beauty around 1939, she's passionate and torn between pleasure and pain. She wears black and she smells like honeysuckle.
    Nostalgia for a slow hot screw... today she would use Sicily, of course.

    Femme by Rochas makes me blush when I open the cap. The cumin in the mix brings to mind a sweet and sweaty encounter. Still, it can surprise you with its elegance, all at the same time! Now, that is a masterpiece! I only wear it at home. Never would to work!

    Well as an ex-biker chick who sold her iron horse this summer after a decade of happy wandering, I can confidently tell you that sexy, badass biker girls wear... all kinds of scents.

    But the one that I used to wear when I went out partying in my alt/grunge/biker/rockchick heyday, and got the most growls of appreciation from big hairy leather-clad men for, was Opium. I vivdly remember a chap who looked and sounded like a bear standing next to me at a bar and rumbling 'you wearing Opium? I love that stuff'. That's still one of my big 'bad girl' perfumes; I love the stuff too.

    But now I know more about perfume and get my leathers in a bottle rather than wearing them head-to-toe (sounds sexy; actually rather sweaty - though that can be a sexy smell in itself). Bandit and Tabac Blond are 'killer' frags to me - they bring out my striding, assertive, confident 'don't give a damn so don't mess with me' side. If it's bad as in 'sexy mofo' it's Vol de Nuit and Narcisse Noir along with my beloved Opium and for 'just plain strange and a little bit twisted' bad, Bulgari Black (but twisted is often a good thing, I feel).

    Am I the only person who really really wants to go out and party with Moondeva?
    Reckon she could teach me a thing or two. And Purplebird can bake brownies to help the party go with a swing...

    But I'm getting lots of tips on what to go and sniff next time I go to the shops...
    Agent Provocateur, Jolie Madame, Paloma Picasso, Black Orchid, Gucci Rush and Le Baiser de Dragon (very appropriate for a Welsh gal) for starters .
    And when this winter I go back to my cool weather staples of Vol de Nuit and my other favourite orientals I will count myself a litle bit 'badder'. Lovely.

    Not only would I love to party with Moondeva, but I hope that if I was bad enough she'd lock me up in her perfume closet.

    I second the Black Orchid and Bandit recommendations.

    Did anyone mention Film Noir by Ava Luxe?
