    Smile What's your "white tee-shirt" scent?

    Hi gals and guys! A while back there was a Perfume Posse thread asking what your "white tee-shirt' scent is-- you know, the one you reach for when you just can't make up your mind and nothing else seems right. It may not necessarily be your favorite, but it always delivers.

    I didn't have one back then, but I do now (although in my case it's more like a certain black sweater scent ). It's Mitsouko. I realised it as I yet again hadn't made up my mind out of the shower, and the tan and black box, halfway covered up by sample packages (I'm not very organised) suddenly looked like it would totally work for today. It hadn't even entered my mind in the shower.

    What about you all? What's your go-to?
    Currently wearing: Arpège by Lanvin

    When I don't have the where-with-all to actually make a decision, these are the three that I usually grab to general success.

    Black dress scent - Crown Marechale
    Black sweater scent - Mitsouko
    White T-shirt scent - Bulgari Eau de The Vert or Crown Ess Bouquet

    Prada Infusion d'Iris.

    Instead of Febreze, I even bought an extra 200 ml tester bottle to spray it on the lining of my scarf and suit jacket after I've been at an outdoors cafe where other people smoke. I even spray it on my wallet so when I take money out I smell it...

    I do not have a white T-shirt, be it a clothing piece or a fragrance. Especially despise those that are white with catchy displays, like "CK" or "My friend went to London and all I got was this lousy shirt". Black -- any time, not white!

    I'm with Twolf on the T-shirt issue: black beats white. Though I recently - to my surprise - discovered that I actually do own a white T-shirt; I cannot remember when I got it but it must have been at least a year ago. And it still had the price on it...

    Anyway my go-to scent is Infusion d'Iris. Extremely versatile and appropiate for any situation.

    I'm more of a black than white lover when it comes to my "reach for" shirt,
    in any case my answer would be
    Chanel no. 19. It pretty much feels right no matter what my mood.
    Vamp is another one I find highly wearable for many occasions.
    Attrape Coeur, too, though, as I mentioned before, since this one makes me feel a bit "open" or mushy hearted, I wouldn't wear it to a business meeting, for example. Come to think of it, I don't attend business meetings! silly me!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Same here, I favour black over white too!
    If I ever wear my white t-shirts / linen shirt, I would pick:
    Eau de Campagne by Sisley
    White Linen by Estee Lauder
    Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger
    Currently wearing: Gold Sugar by Aquolina

    Donna Karan Gold is a great "white t-shirt" scent for me. If I'm in the mood for something 'deeper', Dior Addict always fits the bill!

    edited to add: On really hot or humid days, it's Fleur des Comores by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.

    White T Shirt to me implies, tshirt with blue jeans.

    So a few of mine are:

    Vanille Gallante
    No 5 Eau Premiere
    Light Blue (in the summer)
    Jicky EDT

    Black sweather to me implies, black cashmere sweater with blue jeans.

    hmmm...

    Shalimar EDP or L'Heure Bleue
    Bois des Iles or Cuir de Russie
    Vetiver Tonka or Ambre Narguile

    I almost never wear t-shirts, interestingly enough....when it's hot enough, I wear a tank top. If it's a white tank then I'd most likely reach for

    SummerbyKenzo
    Ava Luxe Moroccan Mint Tea
    Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline
    Kenzo Fleur de the vert
    CdG2
