    Hmm...These Fragrances have all hit the mainstream record so I guess that of all the women you asked they'd probably just note something that was just a tidbit off the their tounge...though some of those scents in that list are good! It's just that none of them even mentioned Guerlain... Ahh well.

    Hell, I'm just impressed that LoneWolf knows so many girls! Assuming one vote per girl, that's 95 girls, not counting niche.

    Not going to work IMO. The focus would be too much on the top notes...

    Btw, nice work, LoneWolf. But I'm interested to know what influence a woman's perfume buying decision, esp. when they are not as well exposed as Basenoters to perfumery. I recall when I was in my late teens to early 20s, girls around my age tend to buy stuff based on what their friends approve/recommend.

    Not that difficult if you use social networking sites like Facebook.

    Great poll LoneWolf!

    Glad to see one of my scents in the list besides Fierce. I don't know exactly the situation at the States , but knowing the marketing behind A&F and the age zone (18-25), I think it is reasonable for Fierce to win the gold medal.

    Zgb (nice wardrobe), if you can get it in a good price, I'd said yes go for it. Fierce has a very pleasant scent, and it is not common outside US.

    It would be nice to have a similar poll, asking ladies between 30 and 40.

    Haha I was kind of a player and got in touch with a lot of girls and their friends, friends of friends and so on.

    I actually didn't use Facebook, I meet a lot of girls too with what I do so I often got their opinions.

    This thread inspired me to do my own mini-mini poll.

    My sisters (both over 60): Le No. 3 de Caron
    My nieces (both over 35): Verace l'homme
    My girlfriend (over 40): Kouros
    My 7 year old great- niece: Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree

    These are the women who matter the most to me. I'm happy. Life is good.

    thanks for the list.

    this will remind me what NOT to wear.. last thing i want is a woman smelling me and reminding herself of her ex boyfriends.
    if i conversate with a woman, i might ask whats your fav colognes.. whatever they say, i dont wear it.
    scents spark memories, past memories.. im trying to make NEW ones, lol.

    La Nuit de l'Homme. Never had better responses than when I wear that stuff around. Mainly college age girls.

    Excellent observation. We make associations with situations.

    I actually like Calvin Klein Eternity--a very white floral scent--but don't wear it because one of my DH's girlfriends wore it long ago. When I came across some essential scent oil he bought in the Middle East for his ex-wife (hidden deep in some medicine cabinet), without sniffing it, I poured it down the sink drain...it was a catharsis for him as he watched me do it...

    Damn straight, Primrose. Out out out with the old! That stuff wasn't even worth smelling. Those smells and the times for them are over and belong with all the bacteria in the disposal.

    Great scene. Pour pour pour, I say.

    Lol! Good point!!!
    To all: I've never tried Fierce, but between today and tommorow I will see to it that I get my nose on the fragrance and see what it's all about.

    So true. So true. When I first sprayed Aqua di Gio, I could absolutely see why most people (and especially women) would like it. It's clean and dirty and warm and musky all at the same time! Yes it's totally synthetic. But most people have only smelled a handful of fragrances in their lives so to them it smells great! They just know it.
