    Default Your favorite fragrance names

    As the title suggests.

    My favorites are L'Air du Desert Marocain (Tauer), Tea for Two (L'Artisan) and L'Ombre dans L'Eau (Diptyque), roughly in that order. Hmm, maybe I have a liking for poetic names? Sometimes the names are so compelling that it sounds like something you have to try...

    CdG series names are very appealing to me:
    Anabar
    Skai
    Soda
    Kyoto

    I don't know, something about short and snappy. I also love scents that are named blandly, so I can refer to it as something else

    I like the names

    Angéliques sous la Pluie (because of the image of angelica under the rain)
    Mandragore (because of the mystery and folklore of mandrake root)
    Sybaris (because of the ancient pleasure capital of Magna Graecia)
    Illicit (because it's kind of thrilling to break rules)
    Trouble (because it can be fun, in retrospect, of course)
    Le Baiser du Dragon (the Dragon's Kiss, you gotta love it)
    Ma Griffe (My Talons, or roughly, "in my clutches")
    Parfum Sacré (recalls the sacred mysteries)
    Antaeus (for the not-quite-invincible Greek hero)
    Coromandel (exotic names invoke the mysterious East, in this case, lacquered screens from the Coromandel coast of India)
    Angélique Encens (a play on words: it names the ingredients, angelica and incense, but suggests "angelic incense")
    Nomade (an ambling, wandering journey through life)
    Bois de Paradis (the Wood of Paradise, the forests of the blessed)
    Eau Illuminée (Luminous Water)
    Bois d'Orage (Stormy Woods)
    Palais Jamais (the Palace 'Never')
    Zizanie (Tares, the seeds of discord, a weed sown among one's enemies' wheat to spite them)
    Insensé (Senseless, Unconscious)
    Cabochard (French for Pig-headed, Stubborn)
    Après l'Ondée (After the Rainstorm)
    Chamade (the Drumbeat of Surrender, or Pounding Heart)
    Cuir Béluga (Leather Beluga, the latter for the sperm whale, i. e., ambergris)
    Mitsouko (Japanese for 'Mystery')
    Vol de Nuit (Nightflight, or in another sense, Night Heist)
    Bel Ami (Beautiful Friend, the title of a romantic novel on the theme of adultery, by Guy de Maupassant in 1885)
    Méchant Loup (Wicked Wolf... yup, the one in the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood")
    Safran Troublant (Disquieting Saffron)
    Timbuktu (just the romance of a legendary, far-off place)
    Route du Vétiver (the Road to Vetiver... and what a journey!)
    Ténéré (the name of a desert wind of North Africa)
    Minotaure (the half-man, half-bull of Greek myth, straight from the Labyrinth of Minos on ancient Crete)
    Vent Vert (Green Wind, and an apt name for it, too)
    Macassar (an exotic port on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, formerly Celebes, from where macassar oil, a Victorian-era hair pomade, was shipped)
    Padparadscha (in the language of Sri Lanka
    [Sinhalese], the name for a glorious and very expensive yellow-orange variety of sapphire; I once saw a four-carat one on sale for just over $10,000)
    Daim Blond (Blond Suede, a lovely tactile image that captures the feel of the fragrance)
    Louve (She-Wolf... shades of Romulus and Remus)
    Miel de Bois (Woodland Honey, alluding to the main ingredients)
    Antidote (very handy in case of poisoning!)

    Nice list, Jaime!
    I second Angelique sous la Pluie - beautiful!
    Vol de Niut, from the novel by St. Exupery?
    I have to take issue with your translation of Route du Vetiver; I rather think it's Road of Vetiver, or Vetiver Road...

    To your list, add:
    Kouros - a representation of a male youth in ancient Greek statuary
    Apres l'Ondee - After the rain shower
    Muscs Koublai Khan - no explanation necessary!

    1. Chanel Pour Monsieur. Sounds like something Cary Grant (one of my favorite movie stars) would choose to wear.

    2. Habanita. I picture Rita Hayworth in the film, "The Loves of Carmen."

    3. 1881. Sounds like a fine, old vintage--anything

    4. Irisia. I hear Sophia Loren wears it. Mamma mia... http://www.freewebs.com/celebrityfragrances/

    not sure what it smells like, but how could you go wrong with a name like "fracas?"
    the name "shalimar" also is, perhaps, one of the more beautiful sounds made by the human voice

    JaimeB, That is a great list of beautiful names!

    I like "Après l'Ondée", which I prefer to translate simply as "After the Rain". This sounds to me like the name of a great tragic novel.

    After the rain, hmmm, I believe that is the name of ALL detergent. Sounds better as a novel though. Serously if I was to pick one at this moment, it woud be:

    Terre D'Hermes for reason that Jock w/ scents mentioned. I also like Feuille Vert, others.

    To my knowledge, Route du Vetiver means vetiver root, which is a ingredient of this remarkable fragrance. I guess it explains the earthiness.

    Don't think so.
    Route = road
    Racine = root

    L'Air du Desert Marocain (just plain pretty)
    Odeur 53/71 (Sounds very "industrial" -- like some kind of chemical)
    Tam Dao (it's Vietnamese... but in Thai it can be said as a word meaning "Ask the Stars")
    Terre d'Hermes (one of those names that really fits in well with the actual scent)
    Antidote / Potion (RPG games!)

    1) Un jardin sur le Nil (At the same time I was returning from Aswan trip and Un jardin was being launched, so nice memories)
    2) Voleur des Roses (Maybe because I´m in my "rose period" :-) and because it´s a metaphorical way to define something that I do when wear a frag, because does not belong to my nature.

    BTW, I don´t wear them.

    Sensual Vetiver

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    All the Pierre Bourdon talk lately made me think of one of his more obscure ones, the aptly named Full Choke which is the only fragrance I've ever come across that is based on gunpowder. (It's also the most shamelessly phallic bottle I've seen thus far.)



    Notes: Gunpowder accord, cardamom, white pepper, melon, pineapple, coriander, jasmine, lily of the valley, Javanese vetiver, teak, Jamaican rum, vanilla, musk, amber.

    I generally like short names that I enjoy saying when asked what I'm wearing. Of my wardrobe (current and future), I like the following names the most:

    Millesime Imperiale - just sounds rich and lavish.
    Happy - makes you smile just saying it.
    Lucky You - makes you feel confident when asked
    Lucky Number 6 - feel like a Vegas high-roller
    Double Black - anything "Double" makes it even more awesome.
    Le Male - also makes you feel confident saying it.

    Other names I like:
    Egoiste
    Minotaure
    Black Code

    Names I hate:
    L'Eau D'Issey - I feel weird saying "Issey water" in any of it's incarnations


    In general, womens perfumes have better names.

    Yatagan...with a name like that,
    you know that this fragrance is a Powerhouse. Sounds like something that Atilla the Hun,Gengis khan or Conan the Sophisticated would wear.

    Simple, to the point and it matches the clothing I wear daily. I'm glad I'm back on the bandwagon with the Modern Reserve
