    Default Scents your mother loves/hates

    Just thought it would be a fun topic.

    My parents don't approve of my hobby because it's expensive and they feel I'm wasting my money. I still buy new scents, I just don't tell them about it. But they still smell them around the house.

    There are a lot of scents I own that my mom hates, but my mom really hates aquatics. But the one scent she begged me to never wear again is Versace Pour Homme. She complains every time I wear this and says it smells horrible! But I like it and so does my peers lol

    There are some scents I own that she does like. But the only scent that ever WOWed her is Chanel Allure Pour Homme Edition Blanche. She didn't stop complimenting me when I wore it. It's probably because I hardly wear it, as an old flame of mine used to complain whenever I wore it, so I stopped wearing it for her, and it lost its appeal to me.

    So what are some scents your mother loves and some she hates?

    Hehehe interesting subject. I got the most compliments with Tobacco Vanille, Baldessarini EdC, GPH II and Santos.

    Pure Malt was not so much to her tastes. She complained that I smelled too feminine. I told her it was Basenotes approved. Then she just rolled her eyes at me....

    My mother loves most of my scents, with the exception of several amber based fragrances, which she says smell like a medicinal cream from her youth.
    Plus New Haarlem falls into this category.

    My dad wears Gucci Pour Homme I and Versace Pour Homme and my mum likes both of these on him.

    So far, thankfully, no fragrance that my dad or I have worn and/or still wear was ever disliked by her.

    Each time I go visit my mother she almost never likes what I'm wearing - basically her compliments rotation consists in "too spiced", "too woody", "too incense", "ehwww, no".
    My current top five:

    Guerlain - Homme Intense
    Angela Ciampagna - Liquo
    Charenton Macerations - Christoper Street
    Dior - Fahrenheit Absolute
    Azzaro - Pour Homme (vintage)

    My mother loved every scent I would wear as she always told me I smelled nice.

    Same here, although CH 212 Men is a particular favorite of hers.

    Loves:
    -Straight to Heaven (just like me, her favorite)
    -Flower of Immortality (loves the peach note)
    -Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin (unfortunately, I hated it)

    Hates:
    -A*Men (way too strong for her)
    -Giorgio for Men ("smells like a bad Walmart shopper")

    My mom wore Dana Tabu, so what she likes on me kind of make sense. Sahara Noir, Terre d'Hermes, Eau Sauvage Parfum and Olympic Orchids Dev One have all received compliments. She seemed to really like Sahara Noir.
