    Default Unequivocal winner?

    Hi y'all. So the original thread went dead and I been comparing notes, discovering my likes n dislikes, had some overwhelming feedback from you guys to narrow my choices down to the following simply seductive frags:
    (Listed in no particular order)

    *Tea for Two
    *YSL La Nuit
    *Versace Dreamer
    *Body Kouros
    *Chanel Allure PH
    *Egoiste
    *Dior Homme
    *lolita lempicka au masculin
    *antaeus
    *secret obsession CK

    {{I am a hetrosexual, 22-year old male.}}
    Whatever's most wearable in winter, during the day on a daily casual basis (college) and just leaves those around longing for just another whiff (girls only =D)

    Could you lot rate the following from 1 to 10 (one being your not-even-thinking-once choice). I have only just dabbled into the frag world and I must admit, I am kinda confused by reading such split opinions on literally every single juice on the planet!

    Help me pick a winner, please!

    There is no real "winner" among the listed fragrances, and not all would agree that they are seductive. Some fragrances might be more popular, but that doesn't mean you'll be irresistible wearing them.

    Tott I am sure no frag on it's own can make a man irresistible, lol. I was merely referring to the comparative seductiveness of these juices. Popularity doesn't concern. I was thinking more of a consensus where base-noters could help me reach a unanimous decision? =)

    My pick for the top of your list: Egoiste

    Egoiste 1-the rest 0! and it's befitting too since the vanilla note is one I am quite fond of, thanks hednic =)

    I don't want to try rating them, but this is how I would rank them: Egoïste, Body Kouros, Antaeus. The others don't rate in my book, or I don't know them.

    Note: these will probably make you just as irresistable to men as to women. You must be considerate when you politely decline their advances. You can't hold these poor guys responsible for their actions.


    (just to be clear)

    Versace Dreamer, Chanel Antaeus and YSL La Nuit would be my top picks

    Default Re: Unequivocal winner?

    Honestly the only ones that work on a "daily casual basis" that still have sex appeal are Chanel Allure PH and The Dreamer (and also La Nuit, I suppose), with Allure being the easiest wear. The rest are specific occasion scents.

    I think they are all fantastic! But I am gay and know that they all highly appeal to other gay men.

    Default Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Hi, if you had to pick a seductive scent, one that can be worn everyday to college by a 22-yr-old, what would you go for and why? BK or Dreamer?

  16. #16

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Body Kouros, by several country miles. Unlike The Dreamer it smells good.

    The Dreamer. Unlike Body Kouros, it won't rot your teeth.

    I agree with this. If I had to choose one based on your critieria, they would be:

    everyday - Dreamer
    seductive - body kouros

    Both great scents. I'd have to go with The Dreamer over BK barely

    YEs sculptureofsoul, I did. But now I am trying to narrow it down even further, choose my day scent. It's winters here in my country btw, temperatures don't go above 20 degrees in the day.

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    I would not choose out of this 2 because they are both so "unique" that they may tire your nose pretty fast. This 2 are 2 out of maybe 4 fragrances that I washed away when I wore them to work. Anyway if I really HAD TO pick 1 then it would be Dreamer
