    Default Fragrances with Numbers in the names - what could they mean?

    Any frags with numbers in the names you know of? Any joking guesses at what they might mean?


    Oh Knize Ten, how thee is loved. Ten? What's Ten?
    Ten - the number of times I've got to shower to get it off
    Ten - the number of women in line to smell my glorious odour while wearing this frag
    Ten - the number of bottles I've gone through

    jo malone 154 - the number of seconds you can smell it for...



    ... well, you get the idea
    Have at it!

    I'm no perfume expert. But for example with M7 by YSL, it's their 7th fragrance for men from the house of YSL.

    I know Herrera 212 Men comes from the area code from New York

    As well, in Turin's The Guide, the authors connected the number for ( Givenchy) Pi to the amount of seconds it keeps their interest .... 3.14 seconds to be somewhat exact.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    M7 - 7 - the number of decade you have to be living and breathing to enjoy this fragrance.

    Sorry, that's a bit of an exaggeration. I did find this to be a very mature smell for my tastes though.

    No joking guesses to offer, but I have read where 1000 came from for 1000 by Jean Patou. It comes from the number of submissions that were rejected before the scent was chosen.

    i personally think it's a nice way to label a fragrance. creates a sort of "musthavebility" of a particular series + doesnt give off any indication of what the smell be like hence you can make your own interpretation

    uh gawd, y'all too serious. This was meant to be an over the top joke about numbers in frags and what they might mean...



    Chanel no 22 = 22, the number of flowers they crammed in there

    It works as well alphabetically as it does numerically. Preparation H is an unqualified success. But what became of the testers for Preparation A to G?
