    Default The Most Sensual Fragrance Poll!

    Follow the description carefully please! The most seductive, dreamy, sensuous, sensual, warm, calm, inviting fragrance that puts your conscious at total ease. Something soft, yet powerful. That's what I mean by my semantic description of sensual. So, go ahead, and give the cologne that is too lustful to wear and you will only do so to get soo noticed and remembered by.

    *Please try and stay close to department store names, I can't stand those fancy names "Diptique" or other ones that are too expensive and you can rarely find them in the mall. Thanks.

    Well, the only fragrance I like that matches your specifics is Dior's Poison, a fragrance I've recently fallen for.

    If you weren't avoiding niche, I might also suggest Serge Lutens Muscs Kublai Khan.

    LoL, thanks for the smiley face. Another name I've never heard, Kubla Khan. I swear, these colognes are crazy. Or something like " Un Velour de Roses," hah. I just want mostly department store/boutique store names.

    BTW-- Dior's Poison? That's for women it says.

    Dude why can't you explore niche. These aren't "weird" mystical scents only available in a single store in the middle of nowhere in Antarctica. These are all relatively widely available, and many are relatively inexpensive. Just because a perfume's name is in French doesn't mean its "crazy" either. Man, you need to broaden your approach here. Oh, and why does it matter if it's a "women's" fragrance, if it smells good on you, no one will know or care.

    ^Sorry, what is "niche" exactly? Totally unfamiliar w/that. Also, if it is for women, then I don't want to be mistaken for one when wearing it, otherwise it would be unisex. Haven't smelled Poison but I guess it might be a bit too rosy/flowery/girly.

    Niche means you won't likely find it at the mall. Most niche scents are easily available, though. I started trying niche fragrances as soon as I got into fragrance and haven't had an issue obtaining samples and bottles.

    I don't care about the gender divide in fragrance; it only matters that it smells good to me. I was answering your poll on what I'd say fits your description, but that doesn't mean it's necessarily the right fragrance for you.

    For your description, the best ones I can think of are Penhaligon's Endymion and Serge Luten's Chergui.

    If you don't mind your "sensual" being a bit more powerful, I'd take a look at Yves Saint Laurent's M7. Maybe even Serge Luten's Ambre Sultan.

    The original, the "plain" Poison. ( There's also Hypnotic Poison, which I don't like but many guys do, so give it a sniff, as it may match your description, possibly more so than the original ).

    The five Poisons are: Poison, Tendre Poison, Hypnotic Poison, Pure Poison and Midnight Poison. Despite the shared name, none of them smell alike.

    I tend to mostly enjoy niche so Poison in a notable exception in my tastes. There are many niche fragrances I know that might suit your needs better than my suggestion, though others can probably come in with some more designer recommendations.

    While you're at Dior you might try Dior Homme, which could also fit your bill. Everyone seems to love it here but me.

    Unless you wear drag and a full face of makeup to go with the fragrance, no-one will mistake you for a woman just because you wear a frag marketed to women.

    Most of the qualities you listed are usually attributed to creamy and sweet/thick frags, which arent my style, but out of the ones I own or have tried:

    YSL L'homme is really good, own this one
    Bulgari AQUA is probably the sexiest aquatic

    The Dreamer is nice, and quite unique. But personally, I find an intelligent man with great conversation about interesting, yet diverse topics to be quite sensual. Not a scent in the world can take the place of a witty personality. Good luck with becoming lustfully unforgettable

    What about Department stores like Barney's and Saks that sell Serge Lutens, L'Artisan, Frederic Malle, Tom Ford, etc...? Do those count?

    And I think you should try some niche fragrances; why pigeon hole your hobby? It is like a car collector refusing to drive a Porsche.

    In addition, to answer your question, none, your personality and social skills should enchant people; not your fragrance. If you look and talk like a train wreck but have the cologne of the Gods then there is no helping you.

    Plus this is not a Harry Potter movie; no cologne is going to cast a cute little magic spell on people. A cologne cannot put a person's "conscience at ease" - the very idea is absurd and is asking way too much from a fragrance.

    Ok, fine, I will play along, go pet a unicorn and milk a fairy and collect the dust and put it into a 3ML decant from Sally mixed w. M7 and viola - you have your answer!!!

    other than that if you really want sensual you will need to at least "explore" the niche market... there are crafted fragrances out there with so much more thought to the entire experience that they blow all of your "designer house" fragrances out of the water... right now I am absolutely hooked on Montale Attar...

    It seems to me that these are two very different descriptions. The former, for me, is Hypnotic Poison. It's like my favorite jeans and a killer pair of heels.

    Too lustful to wear doesn't make it into my wardrobe. I like a more subtle approach.

  28. #28

    Default Re: The Most Sensual Fragrance Poll!

    Well I meant too lustful to wear in the sense that you would only wear it for a special someone, certain event where you surely would not want to go unnoticed, et cetera.

    Bulgari Black smells like black fashion gloves, i don't see anything sensual there.

    When we talk about sensual, we usually mean something lusty, creamy, or even a bit milky in that it drives the other person into you closely, something like a frosting cream undertone, makes the person want to lick you up.

    Bingo. This scent is all that and more. Try Gucci Envy as well.

    I'll throw in a mainstream frag that most have never smelled in the public and that is Dunhill for Men (2003) in the slender curved bottle. Its all that you described in your requirements.

    Kiehl's musk wears differently on different people, in that some find it raunchy and sexy, while on me it smells soothing and sensual. IT's very affordable.

    Exactly - those three are like honey sweet, peppery, and cappuccino. L'Homme and the one are nice for what you're thinking. They're popular for a reason. I don't find them terribly interesting anymore, but they're nice compliment-getters and they make people get close and sniff.

    The most sensual I experienced is the dry down of Paul Smith Story, creamy, soft, warm, not perfumy like, IMO good for intimate moment (you know when someone stick their nose to you skin, and your skin smell exactly like that "frosting cream undertone" with a bit peanut added and it's not like you're putting on a fragrance and smell good, it's more like it's your skin scent) but the middle notes are quite feminine with jasmine and rose. The middle notes will stay for like 2 hrs before the fragrance hit it wonderful base.

    Pretty accurate. They smell and sell. If I wanted a go-to for an evening party, those would be solid choices

    Any decent oud/agarwood oil is just pure sex and sensuality to me. From dirty, animalistic through to humid jungle, this one is my sex scent!

    If I can get a spray of 212 on my partner, it is also super sexy the next day. like a whiff of floral hanging round a musky/woody base that got dirtier during the night.

    I second Poison. It reminds me of my first teenage funblings. The smell of the original Poison makes me feel 13 again when I catch a whiff, which is very rare these days.

    JPG Gaultier^2, Thierry Mugler Angel, Ambre Sultan, CdG 2 Man and Cacherel Nemo all have very 'sensual' elements to them, however no frag turns me on like Angel or Gaultier^2 on my girlfriend. I don't think a guy could pull off Angel in public without some funny reactions, however Gaultier^2 works on either sex.

    At the moment you can officially buy it just in Paris at Les salons du palais royale (or you can have it shipped to you in europe ordering it online from them).
    Rumors are that it will become temporary part of the export like for the next xmas. Otherwise you can try to find it online from "unofficial" sources.
