    I always thought Malle's Musc Ravageur would be good on a woman. I thought it was way too feminine for a man.

    Rate: Coco Mademoiselle

    Musc Ravageur is not a creed, it is made by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle.
    I think its better to wait more and see what others have to say in your first thread. (FOR EXAMPLE I LIKE AQUA WOMAN BY ROCHAS!!!)
    --------------------------------------
    Also I think some of the options are more of a joke!
    (Gucci Pour homme?! It is spicy-masculine and unlike M7 its not wearable for a woman)

    Musc Ravageur is Eyes Wide Shut in a bottle.
    Gucci Pour Homme is church in a bottle.

    Default Re: Scents men love on a woman: "final verdict"

    That list is not a list without Prada's glorious Infusion D'Iris on it.

    Bulgari's Rose Essentielle is a thing of great beauty too.

    My wife also smells delicious in D&G's The One - shame the male version is cack.

    Absolutely!

    For me it's different scents for different women.

    Stay: Spring Flower/Virgin Island Water
    Go: No. 5

    On female scents in general (since y'all are in here checking this):
    I'm not picky as far as a scent that ups her sex appeal. Almost anything sweet or edible. Warm too. No go on a wall of flowers, not at all. Those loud-@ss flower blasts are no-no for me. And I don't like those generic turqouise fresh body spray smells either. But anything sweet and edible from Candy to pastry I like for that.

    As far as what she could wear heavy everyday that I'd never ever tire of:

    FENDI PALAZZO !!!!! (absolute favorite hands down)

    Agent Provacateur
    Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil
    Creed Spring Flower
    Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline
    Badgley Mishcka
    Hermes Un Jardin Mediterranae
    Creed Virgin Island Water

    Ditto. Of course, close to 40% of the scents listed are unisex or men's aren't they?

    Cheers,

    P.S. No one, I hope, is going to suggest layering Bandit with Pink Sugar?
