    Default Which perfume family do you most love in men?

    I am at a stage where i want to switch from the floral family and go to something more masculine in terms of smell (tried egoiste) but am afraid if this is considered as too much as a smell

    So which fragrance family fo you women prefer on your boyfriends?

    Which direction should i follow?the spicy?

    Default Re: Which perfume family do you most love in men?

    Anything as long as it's not oversprayed and it's not really sweet or not too citrusy. Woods, smoke, vetiver, leather, spices, etc. work well and yes, animalic scents, too. Mind, I am talking here about men and not boys.

    bingo, plus animalic and lavender too.
    not to be a broken record, but if you love florals, Caron Third Man is a fougere that might be a nice segue
    Dior Eau Sauvage is a step in the dirt from the cleanliness of Egoiste
    Parfums del Rae Eau Illuminee is a luminous unisex lavender
    Bandit edt - yee haaaaa!!!!!!!!

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    This is a fantastic question.

    Next to my own journey to figure out what I love on me, this ranks high. I'd like to know what sort of scents make me quiver. and I know they exist because I've smelled a guy or two in passing whose scent caught my attention.

    An area worth exploring!
