    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?

    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

    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

    White (or more likely black) t-shirt scent: No. 5 Eau Premiere. Strikes the right casual accord with its newer citrus accord. EP is always right and I don't fret the selection process the way I do with other scents. Although I was initially wary of the large bottle, I am spritzing my way through it. I wore it today to a mover-and-shaker event at which I spoke to the mayor for a fair length of time and met a major philanthropist. The mayor smelled marvelous. I didn't dare ask, but I think it was Cristalle.

    Another scent is this category for me is Chance EdP. I wear this a lot; I like the yeastiness of the patchouli. I also like the Eau Fraiche version, which is greener and crisper.

    From the niche nook, Fleur de Cassie slots in nicely here.

Sometimes I like to wear Annick Goutal's Ce Soir ou Jamais in the summer when it is really hot and I'll wear a white t shirt - it just seems to bloom in the heat and the tiny bit of skank in the bottom just highlights the simplicity of the white t shirt.

    I don't own a white tee-shirt, I'm surprised to say. But I do know what I WOULDN'T wear with such an item -- Opium! I remember being around 11 years old and being fascinated with my stepmother's Opium. I wanted a spray of that stuff so bad. So, when she was out of sight, I snuck into her room and doused my self unthinkingly with a surreptitious spray -- slap-bang in the centre of my clean white t-shirt. Caught in the act! The stain never came out, no matter how many times the tee-shirt was washed.

    As for black cashmere days, I wear Cabochard.

    I understand "white tee shirt" not literally , but metaphorically as the "go-to" clothes you choose quickly, the safe outfit you can select with no decision making when you can't think of anything to wear. [that would be my black top tank top or turtle neck].

    My go-to frags change , but over the last year I found myself reaching for Winter Star and Chergui in cold weather, and Jasmin Noir all year round.

    Come to think of it, Eau des Merveilles would do nicely as well (the way it's behaving today on me, anyway. It's been different on other days... which might make it a little too temperamental to be a white tee scent. I'm so writing myself out of it! Never mind.)

    Although many of my t-shirts are getting crowded out of my closet by work clothes (booo), I still love to spend my weekends in my old jeans with the hole in the back pocket and a much-worn tee. Most likely, I'd just dab on vanilla perfume oil from the Body Shop - simple, pretty, and oh so smooth. Fruity on top and it settles down into a slightly musky amber that says, "Hey, I know I'm pretty, but stop staring at that hole in my back pocket."
