Not big on florals though, I also have a lot of love for lavender, tobacco blossoms/white tobacco flower, honeysuckle, heliotrope, and some species of geranium as well.

I like a lot of florals and think them best when blended, but if I had to choose one it would be rose, simply because rose and oud are notes that traditionally have been used together. Black Aoud is more of a rose scent for me and I love it. Rose 31 is good too.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Big fan of florals here - like many of them.
If I had to pick one, I'd say indolic jasmine (eg Sarrasins). My favorite floral though is Metal, which is hyacinth and other fresh flowers.
Lavender, but of course.
Lavender. If that doesn't count, then jasmine sambac.
if lavender counts, then lavender by miles and miles.
Mine is rose. Always has been. My contemporaries, my family, my girlfriend, and most people I meet don't seem to understand that there are masculine florals, so I catch a great deal of flak for wearing rose scents, but I think my persistence is catching on, or I've become more judicious. Before I was trying. Now I can pull it off.

Definitely rose for me.

Neroli, hands down. I really love it. I like iris when it's a bit dry, like L'Eau D'Hiver, and sharp geranium.
Really love jasmine, but yet to find a jasmine I can wear

I'm not familiar with Puredistance. Do you happen to know where I can sample it in London?

Champaca, as in Tom Ford's Champaca Absolute. Mmmm.
Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.
Mmmm..trying to decide. I love lavender and violet but I think rose wins for me.
La vita è breve, la morte vien.
Wanted!!! Rectoverso Tea Tobacco by Ulric de Varens. PM Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lily of the Valley and Rose
Rose, or lavender or iris (if those two count). Tough call.
Click to view my swap thread (L'Occitane and Tam Dao products going):
Rose - but I cannot wear it on skin since rose fragrances turn urine-y on me. Fuck skin chemistry! Next to rose is jasmine if it is done right a.k.a A La Nuit
Rose, violet, frangipani.
I have a particular affinity to florals, but it is very hard to choose a favorite.
I seem to gravitate to rose and jasmine scents, particularly, dark or alluring or indolic in nature.
But, truth be told, I also like uplifting florals as well.
I like lavender and violets. Have yet to try rose but I have a sample of Noir de Noir coming my way and hopefully I'll try rose 31 soon
Rose, Geranium, Tuberose and violet - I really can't split these.
Rose. There's not even a close second for me.
Current Top Five:
1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
Lavender by a long shot.
Lily of the valley, and Jasmine are good too.
Rose without a doubt first. But also really enjoy Jasmin, Violet, Tuberose, and Heliotrope.
Does Osmanthus count?
Lavender, violet, orange blossom (love the top notes of Fleur Du Male for example, which I believe to be ob), rose, else I'm not sure which is which but I'm generally quite floral friendly, I'd say.
Rose for me.
Hard to choose between rose, carnation and jasmine.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Easy one for me, Hyacinth! I absolutely love the fresh, clean, ozonic type vibe that hyacinth gives off. It often kind of reminds me of freshly shampooed hair and just embodies "clean" to me. I know these types of white florals are considered feminine by many, but I adore them & wear them often (especially in spring/summer). Among my favorite hyacinth scents are Bond No 9's High Line and Andy Warhol Montauk, Hugo Boss Boss Pure, and Oscar de la Renta's Live in Love.
Also, I know these were more of a 90's trend, but the ozonic white florals & marines are also the fragrances I find the most sexy & alluring on females. (scents like Cool Water Woman and Live in Love attract me like glue

Roses of all kinds... Bulgarian Damask, Rose De Mai (Centifolia), Tea Rose, Rose Water, Black Rose, etc. etc. they're all the same to me, and I love it!
I also like white flowers as I have a lot of them in my garden.
