    Default For Men: What is your number 1 favorite floral note?

    Mine is:
    violet/violet leaves

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I love jasmine as well and its in Puredistance M. Its the only fragrance I find that is masculine and has a beautiful jasmine note within the spicy leathery notes.

    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.

    Iris ... Just kidding we all know iris isn't floral

    I'm thoroughly enjoying geranium these days but it could only be a phase so I'll say rose. A real lush rose.

    I also like violet and lavender a lot.

    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.

    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
