    Default Odeur 53 or Odeur 71?

    Odeur 53 or Odeur 71? Which do you prefer and why?

    My pick is 53, it's less harsh to my nose, 71 has too much burnt rubber in the opening for me to handle.

    my vote is for odeur 53. to me it smells unique while being light and "fresh" - a combination that is not too often found. a very pure scent and definitely very modern. love it!

    I haven't smelled Odeur 71, but the reviews lead me to believe that it's more interesting than Odeur 53, which smells like alcohol and nail polish to me.

    I love both.

    However, I cannot wear O53, it gives me a splitting headache (courtesy of a very realistic nail polish/turpentine/copier toner cartridge note). So, I wear O71 and love it.

    Try both, you might not have to choose one or the other, you might like both!

    I prefer Odeur 53 by a wide margin. Odeur 71 is OK, but there's something in it that bothers me. It's like sticking your tongue on a 9 volt battery. A salty/electrical smell that I don't want to smell like. Almost the smell of smoked almonds or salted pistachios.

    Odeur 53 on the other hand is simpler, but cooler. Odeur 53 is stronger than one might think-- I get a headache too if i wear too much. But on me it wears nicely with one or two sprays. Lasts a long time too.

    I think 53 is the perfection of a concept. 71 is more like a side exploration of that concept. Interesting, but not as essential as 53.
