    Default First date recommendation- men's input pls :)

    Hi, it has been a while since I've visited this site. I have a first date coming up (probably dinner) and was hoping I could get some input from some of the lovely gentlemen on this board. Would anyone mind looking at my wardrobe and making suggestions? Thanks!

    I would wear Aventus or SMW .... Second date would go with Amber Narguile... If you had DHI I would make that my number 1 though... Good luck

    Angel. Smelled this on quite a few women. Smells great. Enjoy the date.

    Hypnotic Poison would be my suggestion.

    I'd go with something smooth like Shalimar (whose vanilla should also work well with a dinner). Hypnotic poison, in small doses, also, with the almondy note.

    cacio

    Lol... I didn't, sorry about that. I would go with Ambre narguile then. Though I personally wouldn't mind a woman wearing aventus as well..

    "Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "

    Thank you hedonic, cacio, Magnus and jarrod....lots of options to think about! I love Infusion D'Iris but since the weather has finally cooled down a bit I think I want to lean towards something a little creamier to suit the fall for a change. (I live in Florida where it's summer 80% of the time) I am leaning towards Hypnotic Poison, Angel, Alien or Eau Duelle..... Or Miss Dior Cherie.

    Short skirt, stockings, fag in mouth, 6 sprays of either Poison or Amarige

    It's all about creating the right impression

    I'd avoid Thierry Mugler. There is too much of a risk of smelling like people's former casual sex buddies.

    Haha, thanks Mitch....good point!

    Ooh, interesting observation Russel! We don't want that lol. I don't think a Alien is as common as Angel, though. So I don't think I'd let that deter me. I usually get a lot of compliments on it and people asking me what it is!

    This'll have him salivating for you, unless he's vegan.

    Hahaha, that's funny superfluousPastry.... I don't own that unfortunately. Maybe I will just rub bacon all over myself instead!

    Thank you, NickZee. I don't have Michael Kors Sexy Amber in my wardrobe but I do have Miss Dior Cherie EdP!

    My belated recommendations: one following Eau de Baux, Hypnotic Poison or Shalimar. In either of the three, though in very different way, a certain gourmand hint, but also each of them with a particular classic elegance appropriate even for the most formal dinner events.

    Hello Ken_Russell, thank you for your recommendations. I never even considered Eau De Baux, which I love!! Not sure I'd wear it in a first date, but definitely during the "cooler" months! The date actually didn't happen, I had to cancel...indefinitely But I still appreciate the suggestions, I've got another first date approaching

    (Perfume is fun!)
