Thank you for asking the question and providing the synopsis! That list contains numerous frags that I've tried and given away. Looking over the list makes me more aware of why I wear and prefer certain frags.
I'm more of a "green", "woodsy", "citrus", "lavender" and "vetiver" girl, and I receive many compliments on those types of scents - I think because they contrast well with my appearance, smelling cool, clean, and sporty. The florals, ambers, orientals, etc, are just too warm and predictable for me most of the time, based on my size and coloring (petite, dark hair and eyes) and don't add much to my presence. There are a few exceptions, of course (24 Faubourg, e.g.).
Thanks again for the information!
Bond No.9 West Side
Montale Soleil di Capri
Serge Lutens Chergui, Ambre Sultan
BRITNEY SPEARS FANTASY

According to l'internet, men supposedly prefer "baking smells" like cinnamon and vanilla.

I Love when my Wife wears Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf, Armani Code for Women and Romance for Women. I also Love Chanel No.5, Creeds Spring Flowers, Champs Elysees by Guerlain, Petite Cherie by Annick Goutal, 5th Avenue by Arden and Angel by TM.
I also am very fond of Sensi and Mania by Giorgio Armani....Sensi White notes and Dior's Forever and Ever will always have a place in my Heart.
Out of all these scents.....Flower Bomb is the Bomb that's for sure.....
My husband would prefer someone who can cook well and doesn't smell like a box of donuts. I cannot imagine what would be sexy about smelling like an artificial cinnamon bun, just make some real ones and stick on some ylang ylang.
Champs Elysees - I have that on my list and with all these sales going on, I keep forgetting about it.

In her bottled up is a woman peppery as curry,
a yam of a woman of butter and brass,
compounded of acid and sweet like a pineapple,
like a handgrenade set to explode,
like goldenrod ready to bloom.

***Added fragrances listed throughout thread to first post.
Maybe we should have a frag-off to get a top 10...um, somehow...(I don't have any ideas. Anyone?)
I thought the thread they answered to about their attraction to fragrance on women was much more interesting than listing favorites, which vary according to individual taste, experience, lifestyle, etc. I don't even think of it when applying a perfume, unless my DH hates it. I don't want to be a scent abuser.
I copied the list.
i second coco mademoiselle,
Creed- Windsor (All-time favorite)
Creed- GIT (signature)
Lolita Lempica Au Masculin (fav gourmand)
Creed-Aventus (biggest compliment getter)
Serge Lutens- Arabie,Fumerie Turque, Chergui
MFK-Lumiere Noire (fav mysterious scent)
Santos de Cartier-Fav 80's
Creed Spice & Wood
Wow. They list some real stinkers--I only have ten on that list and that's all I want. I say pooh on the list. Even our friendly basenotes men aren't familiar enough with women's fragrances to judge. Surely to God that list highlights what they are most familiar with-- fragrances with penetrating sillage. That list is just ridiculous. If I had to rotate through that list I'd kill myself.
Please, spritz responsibly.
I really like Sarah Jessica Parker's two perfumes a lot.
I've smelled Lovely and was very fond of it, but I've yet to smell the other one.

Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."
