    Default Best/worst name of a perfume?

    What is the best name of a perfume you've ever heard?
    I often want to try (and want to like!) just because they have such great names.
    I was so disappointed when L'Anarchiste didn't smell good on me, beause I would love to wear a perfume called l'Anarchiste.

    Narcotic Venus might not be a very tasteful name, but I knew I had to try that one the very second I heard about it!

    Also, some names are terrible. There are many perfumes I've never tried just because of the name, like Baby Doll for example. Or White Linen.

    Whats your best/worst?

    Oui
    definitely the daftest name for a perfume to be marketed in the English-speaking world. They could have re-named it Yes and it would have been no problem. It's the MR2 pitfall. Famous in the marketing world, the MR2 car was laughed at in France because reading the name out in French produced the French word for shit. Well who wants to drive a crap car - literally? It's now called the MR and has no problems.

    Who wants to smell of wee?
    (Though as I've mentioned before there's every chance I'll be buying a bottle of this for a sister-in-law who I really can't stand, just so I can snigger childishly to myself at family gatherings 'she smells of wee!' I may be old, but sadly, I'm not very grown-up!) ;-)

    LOL! That's a great story! And it makes me think of another crap name for a perfume: Youth Dew. Is there anyone out there who does not have english as their native tongue who can pronounce those two words together?

    My swedish accent isn't extreme, but I don't think I could go to counter and ask for Youth Dew and be understood.

    One of the best for me are Tubereuse Criminelle and Musc Ravageur, very suggestive.
    I agree with Zibeline - Fcuk is one horrible name. I gusee it falls near these utterly forgettable names and fragrances of Escada and those endorsed by celebs... Fcuk is memorable but I sure would never want to smell of it.

    BEST:
    Eau d'Orange Verte (rolls off the tongue)
    L'air du Desert Marocain (paints a vivid picture of the Maghreb)

    WORST:
    Cumming (needs no explaination)
    Hummer (ugly car, ugly name)
    Fracas (sounds a bit feral)

    Default Re: Best/worst name of a perfume?

    Hehe Dimitri, Cumming: The Fragrance, is what it's really called, so it's not as bad, still makes me snigger though! Eau D'Orange Verte I don't like the name of, one of my friends who doesn't really comment on much, when shopping for fragrances with me, said why would you call a fragrance Water of Orange Green, and to be fair, he's right, it's not like it's anything special when said in French either!

    My favourite fragrance name, is Bandit. I don't know why though. Mitsouko comes in at a close second.

    One name I can't stand, is Djedi, it's cool and all, but I don't know how to pronounce it, and that makes me sad Dejedi, Deejedi, D'Jedi, Dejdi, Jedi?!? I just don't know how to say it!!! I also don't like the name Moshino Friends.

    Why would you call a fragrance Friends? Just why?

    Default Re: Best/worst name of a perfume?

    I agree that Musc Ravageur is a great name. It's French, so it has that mystique for us English-speakers, but the words are understandable and evocative in English.

    One of my personal least favorite names is Shedonism by Origins. Get it, SHEdonism? Ouch. Seems kind of cheesy to me.

    Default Re: Best/worst name of a perfume?

    "Lolita Lempicka" I just love the way it rolls off the tongue!
    "Voleur de Roses" translates to 'theif of roses' - very cool name
    "Mechant Loup" = Big Bad Wolf!!! - clever!
    "Lipstick Rose" perfect match for the juice itself!
    The Chanel number series ~ distinctive!

    I agree with Zibeline - the FCUK name comes across as crass - nothing more.
    My own preferences lean toward clever or meaningful names...not those that are obvious shockers!

    I've always liked the name Shalimar for the perfume - soft, mysterious, yet seems like an invitation.

    Jil Sander's Feeling Man was an awful name (great cologne). "Feeling Man" conjures a lonley image, an individual reaching out and finding nothing. Too many hard sounds, too.

    And, to me, the worst of all is Axe. Period. Bad. Bad. Bad.

    If you put a question mark after most fragrance names and turn them into a short question they are rather humorous:
    Examples and responses:
    Unforgivable? No, just unwearable.
    Trussardi Inside Woman? No, Trussardi behind tree.
    Moss Breches? No, I washed them today.
    Boss Intense? Yes, that's why I quit my job.
    Glow After Dark? What can I say, I grew up down wind from Chernobyl.

    Yeah I agree about the name... which is a pity given that the fragrance is pretty and inoffensive.

    A lot of the Etat Libre D'Orange ones are really strange. I think "Don't Get Me Wrong Baby, I Don't Swallow" is probably a worse name than FCUK Her. Anyone know what this one smells like?

    As for favorites:

    Shalimar, Chamade, Jicky...many Guerlains are well titled

    Alpona sounds like dog food, but Narcisse Noir is lovely

    I like Vent Vert and Ivoire from Balmain and don't think that Balenciaga ever came up with a silly name.

    I think Serena is a genius at perfume names, LTBL is long but clever as can be, and Heart of Glass conjures up shining fragility without a hint of ice.

    At first I did not care for Opium or Poison as names but I got used to them and they don't irritate me at all now

    Burberry and Bvlgari chose rather quotidien names for their scents except for Blu Notte which I think is quite nice but jazzier than the juice

    And for whatever reason I have always liked the names Tocade, Cabochard and Yatagan (although people think I'm saying "yet again")

    Two of my favorites are YSL creations (Opium and Cinema).
    I also like Chemistry, Tuxedo, Acier Aluminium and Hammam Bouquet.

    My least favorite? I have to admit that Hummer comes to mind, as does Trussardi's terribly named Light Her, but SKARB definitely takes the cake for worst moniker of all time (at least in my book) -- it sounds like something you'd name a Scandinavian tree fungus.

    For the worst, I'm with Zibeline and the others regarding FCUK - loathsome.

    On the other hand, we have:

    L'Ombre dans L'Eau
    Chamade
    Parfum Sacre
    Shalimar
    Vol de Nuit
    Sous le Vent
    Angelique Encens
    Ce Soir Ou Jamais

    Beautiful, poetic. There are so many other lovely ones, but these were first to come to mind.

    Ruggles, you are a genius. Snorting in my keyboard, here.

    I really don't like:
    Hiris - reminds me of hirsutism. Not good.
    Anything "pretty" "delicious" "charming" "bewitching" "cute" and other painfully obvious attempts at cupcaking (that's SO a verb, now) women through marketing. Hand me the puke bag.
    Anything childishly "naughty". Spare me your overwrought "naughtiness". If I want sex, I won't seek it in a bottle of perfume, thankyouverymuch.
    X pour homme/femme. BE CREATIVE, already! Gawd.

    I like:
    Philosykos - Fig-lover. Great name, sounds just exotic enough and rolls off the tongue.
    Ligea - If I were to name perfume, I'd use mythological characters. Someone stole my thought.
    Padparadscha - Sounds opulent, and the jewel is gorgeous.
    Jour de Fête - I know, I know, I'm biased. But it just sounds so delightful.
    Vertige - Vertigo. Like the sound and the implication; that whoever smells it would be dizzied with olfactory joy. Bit of a letdown after gaving smelled it, though.
    Aziyadé - Sounds pretty. Bit of a dubious backstory, but soit.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Not so great...

Addictions are really sort of endless and are interesting only from the perspective that they are no longer something that must be hidden or something that one must be ashamed of; no, we are all human and there but for the grace of God...so stand up and own your addiction, take it by the horns and wrestle it to the dirt where it belongs before it kills you or takes away any last shred of dignity you might possess along with your family, job, dog, clean underwear, and car: drugs, drinking, sex, gambling, football, food, shopping, etc.

    Subcategory: Scents named after hardcore drugs: China White. A fragrance fit for Johnny Thunders, RIP. And scents named for the effects of drugs: Stoned. (Stoned always bringing to mind the sixties, and Keith Richards doping about on a Moroccan cushion.) Cannabis Rose; yes, in this day and age it is desirable, apparently, to smell of either skunkweed or vodka.

    More Lifestyle names: Rock Muse. Why not just say "groupie"?

    Truth in Advertising Names: Classic Chypre from Esteban. White Jasmine and Mint.The truth is boring. What you see is what you get.

    Great Names in French That Are Unpronounceable by Sales Assistants or Cause People to Think You Have a Speech Impediment: Guerlain, take heed. L'Heure Bleue. Spiritueuse Double Vanille. Parure. And also: Dis Moi, Miroir; Le De (What are you wearing: Le DUH.)

    I've always loved the Gobin-Daude names, even though they fit beautifully into the tongue-twister category.

    Oh, it's so tasty! I'm not even going to attempt to describe the notes because my lil mind/nose doesn't work that way. It is sweet and spicy, but not overwhelmingly so on either end. Gosh, that sounds so generic. I would totally send you a samp, but I have no decant supplies as of yet. Go try it! If you like gourmands/orientals at all, you may like it. If and when you do, let me know what you think!

    I will do it! I hate to miss out on something I might like.
