    Default Beauty in a bottle (what do you consider?)

    I hear terms thrown around a lot, but one of them that I hear used in only certain situations is the world "beauty." For me, I reserve this sort of title to fragrances that, in my mind, represent pure beauty. Now, that doesn't mean it has to be a female scent. I would say that, for me at least, very few fragrances qualify as beautiful. Plenty are amazing fragrances, and some I like more than the ones I consider beautiful, but the ones I do consider beautiful have that special something that make it unlike anything else. Maybe it is the balance of the composition, maybe it's the quality of the ingredients, and maybe it's the uniqueness of a given fragrance.

    This all may sound a little confusing, so in short, in your minds, what are "beautiful" fragrances, and which do you consider as such?

    So far, I've only encountered a few: Millesime Imperial, Reflection Man, Invasion Barbare (after only one wearing, I can still safely say), and Silver Mountain Water on my mother specifically.

    Anything I apply on my skin from my collection is "beauty in a bottle" to me.

    The only one I can safely say I've tried that I would call beautiful with absolutely no reservations would be Amouge's Homage attar. That's currently my "beautiful" standard.

    Malle's Une Rose would probably land somewhere behind that as well.

    Everything I own is beautiful to me in some way. I wouldn't wear it otherwise.
