    On my wife I like anything, but particularly rose.

    Whatever it is in Chanel no5 does something for me....

    I also really like that fresh and fruity smell I associate with "The Body Shop" toiletries.

    I picked citrus, but there are a lot of notes I like on a woman.

    Pretty much anything except oud, civet, harsh leather. To me, women should be soft and sweet - and should smell that way. Like a Victoria Secret store, not an auto shop or a swamp in the Bayou.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Creed - Green Valley
    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender

    I was between Rose and Vanilla. I picked the rose note, but vanilla rates en par with it in my book.

    I honestly don't know. I was clueless about men's fragrances until I found this forum a few years ago (and it took me quite a while to actually sign up. I lurked for a long time). I'm still pretty clueless about women's fragrances unless they're masculine enough for me to wear them.

    My favorite scents on a woman are things like Black Orchid and Coromandel.

    Another vote for Jasmine, as long as its not too cloying and has been well grounded in its base notes.
    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Usually I just want my woman to smell good. Nothing high quality and complex. Good, simple, yummy!

    I don't like any perfume on my women. They always seem to over apply and it drowns out my fragrance which obviously I like better and want to smell more..!

    I like the same notes on women that I like on myself - just with a more feminine overall interpretation.

    Ylang ylang.
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)

    Animalics, various florals, floral chypres, leather chypres. Surprisingly, something like Mugler Cologne can also be exhilarating.

    Orientals cut with plenty of florals, dry woods, animalics, etc, are often good, but the vanilla bombs most women (and many men) wear today are as repulsive and mind-numbing as it gets.
