    Definitely The Dreamer by Versace. The scent is so complex, it can be a bit unnerving to wear casually. You really need to sit down and study its character to understand it.

    I feel the same way about Chypre Rouge.

    I've seen L'Homme Sage mentioned a few times, and I have to say that it effects me the same way. It's very bracing to me, I don't feel like I can "settle down" with it, even though it interests me.

It's really hard to explain. It's not complex, but it goes on and just sticks, great sillage and lasting power but like a little white cloud hanging near the skin... it's VERY different. I generally like odd, intellectual fragrances, but this is a different level than even that. it's like, hmm... it's like... sweet pasty powder...
    L'eau d'hiver is the one. Simple and complex, dreamy and rational.

    I find when I am pushed out of my comfort zone, I am forced to think and smell more deeply. For instance, when I choose fragrance simply because I enjoy the way it smells, I often take it for granted. I stop at enjoyment. Also, I find that when a fragrance is masculine, it limits my experience. However, if I put on some traditionally women's scents, I often think more about the scent, how it makes me feel, does it work on my skin. There are more variables to consider. Does this smell feminine? What does feminine smell like? Do I like the way it smells? Do I appreciate it for its composition? What does it remind me of, if anything? These questions often get sidetracked when I wear a scent that is less challenging in these ways.
