    L'Heure Bleue parfum.

    I surprised myself there; not what I was expecting to say...and yet, somehow, it feels right.

    => of course - not Mitsouko. Mitsouko was not that much before it was hyped by Turin. Aunty Mitsy is just an example of what Turin thinks of as a perfect modern perfume, abstraction, contrast, color blah blah ... .

    So, what is the most beautiful painting You ever saw? Does that question make sense? If not, this thread is an other hype of perfume as a treasured good, isn't it?

    Plenty of great suggestions here. I'd certainly agree with Patou PH, Shalimar and L'Heure Bleue.
    For me, while not necessarily a favourite I have to acknowledge the spectacular beauty of En Passant.

    I beg to differ, WildThingy. Actually the question does make sense as it simply asks about one's own 'encounter' with paintings. Similarly, this thread calls for BNers' personal experience with fragrances, no matter how limited it may be. It doesn't ask for the most beautiful fragrance in the world. Beauty is after all in the eye of the beholder. I'm sure Mitsouko has legions of fans who have never read Turin's book.

    I have come across many beautiful fragrances, but I'm not inclined to judge which is the most beautiful. Among these beauties:

    Enlevement au Serail
    Mitsouko
    Shalimar
    24 Faubourg
    Coco
    Bois des Iles
    Le Temps d'un Fete
    Jour Ensoleille
    L'Ombre dans L'Eau
    Rush
    ...etc.
    Currently wearing: 31 rue Cambon by Chanel

    Yes Carnal Flower fits "beautiful" nicely.

    I agree. It's heartbreaking.

    I'll have to add Habit Rouge, Attrape Coeur, Plus Que Jamais, Jicky, Mitsouko, L'heure Bleu, Shalimar and Apres L'ondee...and Quand Vient La Pluie...and Bois d'Armenie...and well you get the point

    I would have to agree with you on Homage Attar.

    Since the question is SMELL... I think I have to say Chanel Cuir de Russie (new extrait), which is unfortunately so quiet (not even an hour) and also fleeting (2-3 hours) on me... now, that's for heartbreaking! I adore it, but hardly wear it myself. Next is Amouage Lyric Woman Extrait, which is what I call a sensual (pitch)dark floral that wears like a perfume oil. A good and well preserved vintage Arpege (1970-80s) extrait is truly special as well. I could go on and on...

    Can't we just answer a simple question?

    ...and for a split second, I thought about defending my response of Mitosuko, Wild Thingy, but something tells me a) you wouldn't get it and b) you're not worth it.

    MikeNY, I'm so sad to have spoilt Your love for Miss Mitsy. And sure You're right I know, people here prefer to answer questions like these:

    name the 5 worst frags ever ... everybody names 5 (some 6 but - its meant to be 5)
    help me with my next purchase 8 out of these 27 .. answers without question in dozens picking along each ones likeing

    Mitsy is without any reasonable doubt an archetypical semi synthetic perfume of a rather old style. What about THE ONE most beautiful painting, sculpture, poem, song. Come on, does that make sense for a person of culture and distinction? For instance THE ONE most beatiful painting would be that single first sketch of a - wheel. First wheel in human history, what a beauty that would be. Any caveats here? Mike, ad hominem argumentation isn't Your style, is it?

    <edit> Want to know about my preferences, then? Paco Rabanne METAL (just for today) on my GFs 21yo daughter. S-Perfume S-EX on me today. ELdO Encens Et Bubblegum on GF. Each of these is as least as beautiful as Mitsouko (1976 EdT formulation), go figure!

    I hope I can never answer this one. I have celebrated highlights being Absolute Pour Les Soir - Carnal Flower - Eau Noire - Portrait of a Lady - Marquis de Sade and many more. I only hope I have many more new to come...

    I don't have ONE... quite simply there are too many fragrances that portray beauty in different, but equally profound, ways.

    The fragrances that I find truly "beautiful":

    Guerlain Apres L'Ondee
    Guerlain Attrape Couer
    Chanel No.22
    Caron Pois de Senteur de Chez Moi
    Dior Diorama

    Not a fragrance but Grand Bazar in Istanbul smells just beautyful. And an ancient Hammam has a very intense and special smell. Those two are very unique and i doubt they can be replicated.

    But the best "scent" are those who remind me of my childhood. Whenever that happens i have to stand still and smell and fill my lungs and mind with memories.
