    Default Best fragrance for meeting her parents?

    Lets say the Le Male does its trick, she falls for you, and now she wants you to meet the parents. What fragrance is good for the situation of meeting a girls parents for the first time

    Something inoffensive and conservative, office wear-like.

    +1 something conservative and inoffensive. Light (very light) applications of Le Male or Dior Homme would do.

    Or, one could wear something as offensively sterile as Light Blue, which will give the impression that one scrupolously attends to his personal and his household's hygiene with powerful disinfectants. Which might scare the girl who has to smell that, but will reassure the parents.

    Absolue pour le Soir. Just kidding

    I'd wear something with sandalwood. Its such a regal and noble scent. It will assure her parents you have sincere intentions.

    I would probably go for Creed Silver Mountain Water. Second to that, would be Terre d'Hermes.

    Not sure it's the best idea to be smelling "sensual" in front of her parents =P

    (the following written, assuming hetero parents)

    Something her mom would like but not likely make her (mom) lust after you -- unless you're into the sort of thing that gets you Jerry Springer or Maury.

    Pleasing mom is most important. Here's the simple calculus:

    1.) If mom is happy -- everyone is happy. She has the power over the father. You know the power I'm talking about.

    2.) Dad isn't stupid. He knows what you'll be doing with his daughter anyway. I wouldn't wear anything feminine since dad probably doesn't want a possible son-in-law to be a pansy or weak and unable to protect his daughter. If he's of (USA) Southern or lower Mid Western culture, apply so lightly that dad can't even smell it at "hand shake distance". Mom, you can probably get away with a hug.

    Wear something that smells equal or slightly better than their socio-economic status. You don't want to smell like money if the parents are 8th grade graduates living in a 1970's faux wood paneled trailer with a shrine to Dale Earhardt and an income from selling hubcaps found alongside the road. And you don't want to smell like dollar store disinfectant if her parents are the least bit classy.

    Naturally, wear something that fits you (from an outside perspective). You may love something Brad Pitt wears to the Oscars...but you aren't Brad Pitt going to the Oscars.

    I can't offer any suggestions without knowing more. Chose wisely and apply lightly...and don't take it too seriously. You're dating the person, not their parents.

    Something her dad would have worn had he been into scents, and something her mom would have liked on her husband.

    Ok so she fell for you. The question is do you feel the same way abt her? This will affect the choice of personal fragrance for that 'meet the parents' session.

    Just wear whatever you want, there is nothing they can do about it. Wear something evil and nasty.

    There is a solution to this. Wear no scent yourself but buy your girlfriend a high quality scent as a gift and make sure she wears it. When it is commented upon how wonderful she smells and it is revealed to be a gift from you it is smooth sailing from there on.

    Good luck!

    Depends how serious it is:

    If she's Miss Right, I would go with something light and inoffensive
    If she's Miss Right Now, wear whatever you want!
