    Default Rose 31 = vagina?

    I tried Le Labo Rose 31 for the first time today and, well, er, uh, after the B.O. opening, all I could think of was vagina (and then pencil shavings). I wafted it under my girlfriend's nose and she said, "Oh, nice," and I said, "Vagina, right?" and she said, removing herself from my company, "How would I know? I don't make a habit of going around smelling vaginas." Okay, well, be that as it may -- don't you guys get that note in Rose 31?

    In any event, I love the scent. And I may have to buy more than a sample. And then never ever wear it around my gf. She has no sense of humor about these things!

    Are you sure you weren't just thinking of cedar, or perhaps a cedar tree with a hole bored into the trunk???

    With this sort of sense of humor, I doubt you'll be getting much vagina in the future.
    And no it doesn't.

    When you say it smell like vagina, you meant its tangy, salty, and pungent?

    well, all i can say is if you don't smell what i smell, then you must have been batting for the other team all your life and don't know what it smells like, ha ha, no offense meant, hopefully no offense will be taken, etc and so forth.

    but i swear that's the note i get right after the, er, opening. what can you do? it is what it is.

    anyway, i'm not (totally) perverted ... but i can't speak for my nose.

    maybe someone you know uses a rose scented douche?

    It is not unheard of for women to perfume the area around the vagina, I think this is far more likely than any random scent capturing a note that is universal vagina

    But then Chandler Burr did describe a perfume as smelling like a man's (clean) anus once, and he knows what he's talking about.

    Even if you do get that association with Rose31, it only makes for a dorm room discussion. I'd like to think that we can do better than that here. I mean, is that something that you absolutely need to share?

    There are ladies that read our posts and I enjoy that. I think its worthwhile to uphold the levels of discussion that have made the MFD a welcoming place for the girls.
