    Default What becomes a legend most?

    In your opinion, what's the drop-dead sexiest fragrance a woman can wear? Nothing unisex, nothing in your collection, just the most arousing, mesmerizing, heart-thumping perfume a woman can wear.

    Since I'm asking men for their opinions, I'm posting this in the Male section. I admit that I don't really know where this thread belongs, in terms of site rules.

    Anyway guys, what drives you wild?

    Why nothing unisex? Tastes will differ from man to man, enjoying even those termed "unisex."

    Maybe some men really like it when their woman splashes on Eau Sauvage or Derby.

    I think Donna Karan Cashmere Mist is pretty nice... in spite of the bad reviews I saw on it.
    And Sarah Jessica Parker has a couple of good ones... Lovely, and NYC.
    Just my opinion.

    Nina Ricci's Fille d'Eve by Germaine Cellier, long discontinued. Parfum for preference, or Dans la Nuit (original, vintage EDP formulation from the Moon/Stars lalique bottle or the five-ounce spray) by Worth. If we have to pick something modern then I'll say Love, Chloe.

    Hypnotic Poison - Christian Dior. The love of my life sprayed some on herself last time I dragged her around the fragrance department at House of Fraser and we both immediately fell under its spell.

    L'Heure Bleue Extrait (Guerlain)
    La Femme Bleue (Armani)
    Insolence EDP (Guerlain)
    Sacrebleu (Parfums de Nicolai)
    Encens Mythique d'Orient (Guerlain)

    I agree with some of the above: Vintage Shalimar, Insolence EdP, Nina Ricci Fille d'Eve, Habanita. For me Shalimar stands apart from the others.
