    Default Word Association: When you hear the word pretty...

    When you hear the word pretty, what is the first fragrance that comes to mind? Just curious as to your responses.

    My answer: Serge Lutens A La Nuit

    The word pretty makes me think about when I first smelled vintage Diorissimo. Like running in a field in the spring.
    A la nuit is a little too intense for me to think about prettiness; but good it certainly is.

    Rahat Loukhoum, Serge Lutens. Don't know why ( it's not the prettiest fragrance in my estimation ), but that's what my subconscious offered up first.

    I am not sure if I got this. Lol, thought it was a game? If not, sorry! Pretty, I think of Hermes Caleche Eau Delicate or Chanel No. 5 Eau Premiere.

    Diorissimo sprang to my mind first and then Armand Basi's
    Lovely Blossom (nose is Francis Kurkdjian!) - all apricots, jasmine,
    heliotrope, orange blossom and plum.

    "Pretty" makes me think about fragrances that are nice but not particularly interesting...

    Grand Bal comes to mind. It's pretty, but not very interesting to my nose.

    A pretty little nondescprit and rather boring Floral, I'm afraid.

    Same for me. Pleasant, harmless, but I wouldn't buy or wear it.

    I can only associate one thing with the word pretty and that of course is "vacant" so the scent must be ELDO's Sex Pistols

    Hmm, pretty: the grounds where cute and beautiful meet. Vintage Quelques Fleurs -- before they reformed it or started adding "L'Original" to the name. +Pretty much every vintage Nina Ricci (love) or modern Chloe (not so much) I've ever tried puts this song in my mind, including its reactive cynicism:

    "Nice" is the kiss of death in perfumes if you ask me. That said, what other than So Pretty by Cartier?

    Paris Hilton Paris Hilton for Women. Pleasant, unsurprising, frequently complimented by the average male.

    Penhaligon's Bluebell and Pure Tiffany always struck me as "pretty".
