    Have you ever wept at the beauty of a fragrance.....? Which one....?

    Recently whilst enveloped in Black oudh, and the bed of roses it surround you in, I came close to tears..............

    Not yet, but I'll admit it is possible. I'm still a novice at this stage, so I'm open to that possibility at some point along my journey, particularly as I explore more niche fragrances. I've been moved to tears by a film, or a good song, don't see why scents should be any different..

    Onions? Often. Fragrances? Rarely. I'm slow to tears, so usually I only cry at art of any kind when I'm already down in the dumps, in which case it's a case of contrast; the beauty I'm experiencing versus the ugliness I'm feeling at the time. It's the same with music. For reference's sake... it was En Passant.

    I've felt exhilarated, but tears,no.

    But I guess fragrances are works of art used to evoke a certain mood in a person. But I still think crying over a fragrance wont happen for me, unless it's your lifelong mission to find the perfect one

    Cried, never. But I've been moved by the beauty of some, most notably Mitsouko, Iris Silver Mist and L'Eau d'Hiver.

    I've been extremely taken by the beauty of LV Spezie which brought forth a series of memories in strong spurts -- almost made my eyes damp.

    The only time I would cry about a fragrance is when it drops from my hands and the bottle shatters

    No... actually I haven't. I'm far from being emotionally closed off but perhaps I simply I haven't found the right fragrance yet...

    No. Fragrances, for me, are just too inferior an 'art' to evoke such a reaction (same with paintings etc.).

    I might get sentimental over some scents I'm wearing now in a good many of years. But not because of any 'intrinsic beauty' - just because of the 'misty water-colored memories...'.

    What he said!

    But seriously, crying and being in touch with your feelings is interesting culturally. A couple of centuries ago, the zeitgeist was such that crying, despair and similar feelings were very common, and practically expected of even the most manly of he-men.

    Nowadays, being so easily moved would scream of affectation.

    To answer your question very specifically, No, I have not wept purely due to the structural beauty of a scent. But a fragrance or 2, I affiliate very strongly to a certain late family member, and there are times I get misty-eyed when I get whiffs of them and am remembered of him. I see that as the beauty of that scent, if it makes sense....

    No, and I don't think I ever will - except perhaps in terms of remebering someone deceased by the scent or the like. Musc and movies can do this for me, but paintings, as well as fragrance, work on a different level.

    Can't say that I did.
    Then again, I'm not the romantic type, and not easily moved to tears by any kind of art. So perhaps I'm the wrong one to ask.
    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.

    Hm, as someone who cries pretty easily (bawling at Harry Potter anyone?) the only time perfume has made me tear up was when a particular perfume makes me remember a certain someone/a certain time- a memory evoked by the scent itself, if you will.

    That said, there are some scents that I want to wear when I am sad that enhance the melancholy which is somehow cathartic. Apres l'Ondee is probably the best for that.

    I wept after my first wearing of Gucci By Gucci Pour Homme. It was tears of regret and anguish after discovering what a crap scent it was

    sorry i couldn't resist.

    Is the OP putting us on?

    Crying due to a scent = serious emotional issues...
