Thread: Question for the men.. (mostly)
Its so funny that this thread should be posted as recently I've discovered that I am becoming a HUGE fragrance snob when it comes to my dealings with girls. Because I spend so much time thinking about which fragrances to wear and when to wear them, I unconsciously have high expectations for the scent of any girl I may be seeing/dating. Unfortunately, as you all can imagine, I don't often meet girls who commit as much thought to their fragrances as we do, and therefore I'm usually underwhelmed by the quality of the perfume I come across. In fact, most girls I date smell of something simple like cheap body spray or lotion, the kind you pick up at Bath & Body Works or Victoria Secret. Mind you, the girls are usually 20-25 yrs old, so maybe they have not yet discovered the joy of fine perfumery. Can't wait to date a real fume-head like myself!
Primarily, I do it for myself, as I rarely receive compliments from women regarding my fragrance, but when I do, I find it a great ice breaker/mood setter.
As for what a woman wears, it's probably akin to makeup: I generally prefer more naturally looking women as opposed to the other extreme who have heavily panted faces one step below a clown's. Unless she has b.o., a woman's scent is probably taking a back set for my attention to her face, body, etc.
Though this thread isn't meant for me, I must add that fragrance - all fragrance, male or female - doesn't influence my attraction to a guy one way or another, except in the sense of smelling nice being better than BO.
That being said, I'd get interested in anyone who wore a fragrance I liked.
Boss Deep Red and Dior Hypnotic Poison make me crazy
Wearing scent (in this day, that is) is a sign of good grooming, and perfumes will always be a symbol of seduction (Cleopatra was to have scented the sails of her royal barge with perfume before she seduced Mark Antony.)
In truth, we're scent-lovers. A person wearing scent will always turn our heads.

I love a woman to smell great. And yes it does turn me on. My gf wearing LP No.9 smells like sex on a stick, pure heaven.
From my point of view, I wear fragrances for me, if a woman likes it, then that's a bonus.
In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...
