    Default For Men: What is your number 1 favorite floral note?

    Mine is:
    violet/violet leaves

    Not big on florals though, I also have a lot of love for lavender, tobacco blossoms/white tobacco flower, honeysuckle, heliotrope, and some species of geranium as well.

    I like a lot of florals and think them best when blended, but if I had to choose one it would be rose, simply because rose and oud are notes that traditionally have been used together. Black Aoud is more of a rose scent for me and I love it. Rose 31 is good too.
    Most worn scents according to my haphazard use of the SOTD...so perhaps my favorites.
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (23 wears)
    2. M7 by Eves Saint Laurent (18 wears)
    3. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (21 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (14 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (13 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (12 wears)
    7. Terre d'Hermes by Hermes (11 wears plus; often not recorded, my "go to" scent.)
    8. Interlude Man by Amouage (11 wears)
    9. Journey Man by Amouage (11 wears)
    10. Santal Royal by Guerlain (10 wears)

    Big fan of florals here - like many of them.

    If I had to pick one, I'd say indolic jasmine (eg Sarrasins). My favorite floral though is Metal, which is hyacinth and other fresh flowers.

    Lavender. If that doesn't count, then jasmine sambac.

    Mine is rose. Always has been. My contemporaries, my family, my girlfriend, and most people I meet don't seem to understand that there are masculine florals, so I catch a great deal of flak for wearing rose scents, but I think my persistence is catching on, or I've become more judicious. Before I was trying. Now I can pull it off.

    Neroli, hands down. I really love it. I like iris when it's a bit dry, like L'Eau D'Hiver, and sharp geranium.
    Really love jasmine, but yet to find a jasmine I can wear

    I love jasmine as well and its in Puredistance M. Its the only fragrance I find that is masculine and has a beautiful jasmine note within the spicy leathery notes.

    I'm not familiar with Puredistance. Do you happen to know where I can sample it in London?

    Rose, or lavender or iris (if those two count). Tough call.

    Rose - but I cannot wear it on skin since rose fragrances turn urine-y on me. Fuck skin chemistry! Next to rose is jasmine if it is done right a.k.a A La Nuit

    I have a particular affinity to florals, but it is very hard to choose a favorite.
    I seem to gravitate to rose and jasmine scents, particularly, dark or alluring or indolic in nature.
    But, truth be told, I also like uplifting florals as well.

    Iris ... Just kidding we all know iris isn't floral

    I'm thoroughly enjoying geranium these days but it could only be a phase so I'll say rose. A real lush rose.

    I also like violet and lavender a lot.
