Thread: Favorite Estee Lauder fragrance
Tuberose Gardenia and Youth Dew.

It may be cliche, but my mother's signature scent is Beautiful, and I couldn't imagine her in anything else.

I would vote for the recent Brasil Dream For Him,a nice summer companion.
I also like Intuition For Men,almost a Chanel's Allure Homme clone...
On a sidenote,Lauder For Men gets very few wearings during the year:too heavy/strong/formal for regular use.
It's never too late to mend.
Intuition is very similar to Chanel Allure Homme but it has less cedar in the middle notes, and some of the sandalwood and tonka on the bottom has been replaced with a hint of incense. All of which make it much more wearable as an office scent. The bottle however is a disaster: ugly and extremely difficult to hold while spraying.
I love Estee Lauder's fragrances...I grew up with them!
My mom's fave was White Linen and I, too, wore it for a while. I still love it but it doesn't really capture my essence. I have a mini of it and dab on a few drops every once in a while when I want to evoke her. Add a burning Salem cigarette and I could probably reincarnate her, but I can't stand cigarette smoke.
My favorites are Azuree, Private Collection, Cinnabar and Youth Dew.
My fave masculine from the line is Tuscany. One whiff of it and I'm a junior in college again...wow, memories. I like Aramis too.

How sweet to conquer hate by love,
Perfumes the axe that lays it low.” Rabindranath Tagore, Indian poet.
Another vote for Tuberose Gardenia and another for Youth Dew. I listened to a speech Chandler Burr gave and I had no idea what a hugely revolutionary fragrance Youth Dew was when it was first introduced. Apparently, it was a game-changer. Gotta respect that.
