    Cool what perfume would suit a roman toga outfit?

    I'm off to a costume party tomorrow night. The theme is 't' so I'm going to go as a Roman lady in a toga. Got some fancy purple and gold toga fabric so im going to have a fancy toga thing going on. What style of perfume would suit? Oriental?

    I think Dolce Vita would be perfect!

    To elaborate, I know the Romans wore perfume liberally so I was thinking an oriental with crazy sillage would suit, either CK Obsession or Guerlain Shalimar. Alternatively I could go for a rose soliflore ala Perfumers Workshop Tea Rose. Any other ideas?

    I don't have anything pot pourri-esque but I think that kind of scent would work nicely!

    It's a big favorite of mine too - and sort of popped out at me when I took a peek at your wardrobe before making a suggestion.

    I found this old article that may spark better ideas: http://www.usatoday.com/travel/desti...e_N.htm?csp=34

    Shalimar from your wardrobe.

    It exudes a sense of mystery.

    Um, Roma lmperiale by Profumi del Forte. lt's actually a fantastic perfume, & l recommend sampling it with a view to future toga parties!

    From your wardrobe, l think Dune or Obsession would be suitably exotic.

    Dune is a good suggestion, I love this fragrance so much and find it easy to wear. Obsession is not easy to wear but it screams EXCESS - Roman style no?

    Shalimar is amazing. Each time I wear it I love it a little more, especially if I wear it lazing around at home so I can make a point of sniffing and appreciating its progression. From all the replies it sounds like an oriental frag is the go!

    Purple & gold? You must wear Alien of course! :-)

    PS: a lovely gold skin shimmer would be great too! Alien scented or generic.
    It's been a long hot Summer in Sydney, looking forward to Winter & wearing vanilla fragrances.

    Wore shalimar! Was too hot to wear Dolce Vita which turns on me when its hot/humid. Shalimar held up quite well indeed.
