    Default Which perfumes make men melt when you walk past?

    I saw a thread in the male fragrances asking what scents women love...so here's the one for us. Which scents do you notice turn heads?

    I'm sorry, it must be annoying to have guys interject themselves in your conversations as often as we seem to do (I sometimes get annoyed just seeing it), but the topic is relevant and I just can't help offering a few of my favorites on women. So, you said melt...and I'm taking that literally. As an easy example, a few of the Chanel offerings for women are fantastic, but I'm not sure I would say they make me melt. moon sparkle by escada i would say makes me melt. dior addict would be the runner-up. hypnotic poison too.

    Mr Ali loves and buys me vintage Poison, Gaultier2 and Chanel No5. He buys me other things if I put orders in but they are what he loves best and left to his own devices will choose. Chanel No5 always in Extrait or EDT, he says EdP smells off. Clever boy recognizing it's a slightly different fragrance

    If a girl is wearing Victoria Secret Love Spell and walks by, she better be able to outrun me Curve for women also smells great. Katy Perry Purr might cause me to go into caveman mode with a club in hand. I'm not picky honestly. Pretty much any perfume smells good to me except for the musky ones. I prefer them to smell girly and soft. It helps if a girl wears a low cut top or leaves the top few buttons of her blouse unbuttoned to help her perfume emanate more In all seriousness, most guys don't pay attention to what perfume a girl is wearing as long as it smells good.

    I've likely had the most "emotional" compliments when wearing Shalimar. From hubby, lately Mitsouko. I'll add Carnal Flower too.

    Have had very positive responses from men while wearing L'Or de Torrente. Mr.T loves honeysuckle and gardenia.

    Armani Mania 2004, of course. Lady Million, Prada L'eau Ambree.

    I've heard a couple times men do go a little nutty for Love Spell. I don't like it myself. I don't like VS as a whole, the store or their merchandise. I think that place is a place that was classy before all the tacky advertising. It was a nice, classy boutique. Now I think that place is tacky, on the cheap side, and has nothing that impresses me much. JMHO.

    I think that this may come as a surprise, and it is contrary to much of what the guys are saying on this thread, but I have noticed, really noticed that there is a theme around when I get compliments from men, and it is not "feminine" or sexy or sweet, or soft fragrances. It is Lemons! Lemons and herbs, lemons and woods, lemons and limes etc etc. You might be surpised but it is true. Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Sicilia (lots of times); Annick Goutal, Eau D'Hadrian and Eau du Sud (lots, usually something like "you smell lovely like you just came out of a shower"!), Carthusia Mediterraneo (strange man in shop asks what I am wearing and where he can get it), Acqua De Genova, which is lemons , limes, flowers and woods, (the same). Honest! And I am definately talking about men. Women compliment on different ones. I have thought about it and I wonder if what is actually happening is that they are smelling something that appeals to themselves?

    Does anyone have anything to say about this, particulary the guys?

    Foustie- I don't doubt a word you are saying but- it may be that because Scotland is not a great producer of lemons, citrus scents may seem very mysterious and alluring to your fellas. Whereas here in SoCal where everyone's got lemon or orange trees growing in their yards, I've never received any notice when I'm wearing citrus. But if I wore something peaty and whiskey-ish I bet they'd sit up and take notice! just kidding.

    This may sound strange given that my husband and I both enjoy wearing fragrance, but neither of us is attracted to the other more based on what perfumes we are wearing. Nothing I wear makes him melt, nothing he wears makes me melt. Our natural scent does, yes, but not perfumes.

    So I asked him whether he's smelled any fragrance, anywhere, that has had that effect on him, and he said, "No."

    In my experience.... Most straight men seem to love vanillas (cheap, expensive - doesn't matter), most gay men like the florals, especially the expensive ones.
    It's been a long hot Summer in Sydney, looking forward to Winter & wearing vanilla fragrances.
