    The scents I love the best are often wildly unsuitable. (That may be why I love them so.)
    Diorella and Cristobal are always well behaved and can go anywhere, and when I need an aura of polish 31 Rue Cambon does the trick.

    Greens, musks, chypres...I expected aldehydes to be mentioned more frequently and I'm surprised they're so under-represented. Interesting.

    Hi Kyra - I am trying to keep the wildly unsuitable, but exciting, scents to a minimum because I find that I just don't wear them very frequently because they are so ......well, unsuitable is a great description! I'm going to start another thread, as a spinoff -

    Same here! I love sniffing Ava Luxe Madame X on my arm at the grocery store, lol.

    My anytime frags: SJP Lovely, BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom, Ava Luxe Love's True Bluish Light, Philosophy Amazing Grace. All four are always well-received and not overwhelming.

    I'm rather new to the perfume addiction thing so I actually don't have a great number of full bottles/holy grails. I'm still testing. But I did find some loves this summer that turned into staples. Therefore, I'll have to give my spring/summer anytime 2:
    L'Artisan Parfumeur - Premier Figuier. I just find it so classic. I've been complimented on it many times when I wore it to work, and even though it's an everyday staple I still get excited when I wear it.
    IO by Carthusia - I was addicted to this almost upon first sniff. I recieved a sample from a fellow BNer, gave it a spritz, and said to myself "this is what summer calls for." It's the mint in it. I don't even know if it's an official note, but it's very present for me (though not overbearing.) I absolutely hate being hot and the refreshing mint and sheer florals are all that's refreshing about summer.
    Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

    I'm wearing SL's Fleur d'oranger a lot this days...and nights. Bought it a few months ago and I'm halfway through the bottle...Creed's FdTRB...get lots of compliments on that too! Evenings I wear Iris Poudre or my current sample of Narcisse Noir (craving a bottle of that)

    Dulci - Let me know how you like it. If for some reason you don't I'll buy it from you :-)
    (Just joking) But in all seriousness - I am stocking up since it has been discontinued - wonder how many bottles are still left out there in discount warehouses?
    I know what you mean about stocking up, I panicked and bought another bottle of Colony recently when I noticed 1stperfume put it on clearance. I don't ever want to be without it!

    Lots of good ideas in this thread, I'm taking notes...

    LOL! Me, too. I would love to have the new Premiere version of No 5, but they pulled it off the shelves until next year and I can't find it online. I hope they don't stick in those awful chemical sunscreens they put in some of their newer scents, they make me sick.

    In current use, I only have one go-to fragrance. L'Artisan Vanilia. So delicious, yet not really foody. I know when I spray this on, I will enjoy it, and not have to worry about what people around me think. It's very pleasing and comforting, too.

    When I'm dithering and need to grab a safe frag that will do for anything, it is usually Fleurs d'Oranger by SL, but I get a bit bored with its safeness. Others that I rely on to see me through any situation:

    Les Nuits d'Hadrien
    Miss Dior
    Perles de Lalique
    La Perla
    And last but by no means least, any of the Jo Malone colognes.

    If in doubt, I tend to avoid using strong tuberose. It can be an aquired taste. I wear tuberose a lot at home, but not for 'out'.

    Eau Parfumee au The Rouge and Premier Figuire Extreme. I've worn both to work (on a public library reference desk, where scent can be an issue) without problem, and also wear them on 'comfort' days.

    Oh my goodness Tovah, what are those amazing flowers in your pic?

    Note to self: stay on thread!
    Lots of good ideas popping up on these posts - lots I'll have to sample.
    Go-to frags at the moment are Gres Cabaret and Madame Rochas and I also love Vol De Nuit in the winter and Jicky and Un Jardin en Mediterranee in summer.

    Until now, VdN has been the bottle I'd pick up on a chilly morning if I couldn't make my mind up, but lately I've been loving the salty Cabaret and soapy Madame. Oh and I'm liking Blue Grass too. I think the slightly herbal element is what makes them good. But the little bottle of Voile d'Ambre in my handbag has been getting a workout too...

    Methinks I need to give Champ Elysees a try. It has come up on the "delicate, feminine scents" thread and also in this one. Also, I love the name Vocalise. There are so many great suggestions from everyone, I truly look forward to getting started with the exploration.

    Lately it's vintage Mitsouko edt (so soft and autumnal, I love it) and Chergui.

    In warmer weather, Caleche (there's some aldehydes for you!) and Balmain de Balmain.

    I have to agree, I'm finding no 5 edt very easy to wear and it works for most occasions. My second choice at the moment would be Bulgari The Rouge.
