    No lady at present but in recent times common favourable scents have included Pure Malt (big reactions on this one), Musc Raveguer and for occasions the chocolate+rose of Tom Ford NdN has been a huge hit.

    IB and GIT have also been popular but more day to day with honourable mentions to Jubilation XXV and B2B on more formal occasions.

    But, really, every woman is different. Big surprise, I know.
    I agree every person is different but I too have noticed this with a long term r/s, I haven't come to any solid conclusions but I think PM, DHI etc have a sexy animalistic side that fits in well with when you are dating/seeing someone new. Overtime once you become familar that sort of fades etc. Ah could probably read more into it but eh could be seasonal for all I know.

    My ex's favourite was Infusion d'Homme.

    The current, plutonic, female friend likes: GIT, Rive Gauche, Esencia and most classic masculines.
    Anything remotely sweet or unisex gets her disapproval.

    My girl loves when I wear Black Afgano. She even got me a 2nd bottle for Christmas, then a month later she had moved it to her vanity and wears it all the time now (and it smells incredible on her)

    An ex gf loved Armani Eau pour Homme on me. We broke up and the fragrance got reformulated. Good runs had to end sometimes I guess.

    My spouse found these scents 'sexy' on me:

    Penhaligon's Sartorial
    Montale Musk to Musk
    HdP Tubereuse Capricieuse

    And gave me (unsolicited) thumbs up for:

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille
    Original Vetiver
    Memoir Man
    Grey Flannel
    Ambre 114
    Endymion
    Les Heures Fougueuse

    She stopped buying fragrances too!

    First, an on topic comment before I go off on a tangent: I think it's so much fun to figure out a woman's taste and try to temp her senses with a scent. I love it when I notice trends. I had a 1st date recently who complimented me on L'Air du Desert Marocain. Normally, I wouldn't wear LDDM on a first date, but I already knew she loves middle eastern food. And sure enough, she loved LDDM. On the other end of the spectrum, I've found that women who love desert never fail to enjoy Hanae Mori HM.

    I know this is off topic, but I just have to say, dude, that's AWESOME. Totally the right attitude. Absofrigginlutely. Years ago, I moved across the country, partly to rekindle an old flame relationship, but it crashed & burned in about a month. OOPS! I was single in a new city, so I figured it made sense to use it as a reason to REALLY start over. I looked at everything from my furniture to my clothes to my hobbies, habits and everything in-between, and I started making changes. I didn't try to tackle everything at once. I made a list and one by one, I made tons of changes. Some were little things, like, I stopped using paper towels and replaced them with cloth napkins. Other changes were big, like, I saved up and bought myself a damn nice bed, a leather couch and cool black & white art for the walls. And I started focussing on my hobbies (writing and photography). As I made all of those changes, I became a happier man, partly because I became more 'ME'. And I became more proud of my home. Even though it's just an apartment, it's definitely a place that feels like ME.

    Perfume plays a role too (getting back on topic since this is a perfume forum). Years ago, I wanted cologne that would make me smell attractive to women. But that can come off like trying too hard. These days, I focus on finding scents that I love that also fit my personality.

    All of these things came together and made me, as a friend put it, more of a catch. I'm still a work in progress of course, as are we all, right? I think it's amazing to look back and realize how much easier it was to get dates after I made those changes than it was before I made them. I look better, I smell better, I feel better, I'm happier and even though I live in a similar apartment, it's so much better of a place to bring a date back to. My place now has style ... and isn't that part of the reason we wear fragrances? Style?

    Anyway... I ended up rambling (sorry!) but I just wanted to say that you're 100000000% on the right track with an attitude like that. Rock on!

    Its a tie between YSL L'Homme and Creed Silver Mountain Water. I think she prefers L'Homme it was a scent I wore when we were first dating. So I not only have that exact bottle but now I have a back up just in case!

    I'm noticing a few comments about wives and girlfriends wearing your scents. That's awesome.

    I think my wife would smell great in TdH and CdG 2 Man, as well as some of my softer unisex scents like CdG 2 and Silver Mountain water, but I guess that's for another thread.

    AHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!! That's HILARIOUS!
    Hey man, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I think your approach was 100% spot on, the more you think and act on your own terms, the happier you'll be. Also, it'll give you an opportunity to grow, most people are scared to buck the trend and be their own person, but if you do that all you'll get out of life is a shadow of who you are. I'm super happy for you and what you're accomplishing, most people don't get this far. As for me, after years of battling a powerful disease, ulcerative colitis, and recently undergoing two surgeries, I'm finally realizing health, although I'm still in recovery mode. I'm only a couple of months away, and like you probably thought to yourself after the relationship ended, I've already suffered enough from this, why let it continue to bother when I can move on. That's part of why I'm getting into fragrances, I always liked them but now I'm discovering there's a whole world to it, with a lot to learn, which is perfect. Anyways, rant over, thanks again for your thoughts, cheers.

    Usually the more mainstream something is the more well liked it is.

    I ALWAYS get compliments with Chanel AHS, Bleau de Chanel, 1 million, and fresh aquatics.

    Most of what I love doesnt get the same love back. No one has ever enjoyed Tobacco Vanille on me

    But I do get lots of love with Millisime Imperial. LDDM stands out in my mind as the only stink bomb that literally drove a girl away by ruining a dinner because the smell ruined the food.

    Im also in my late 20's and date in the similar age range.

    Santal Massoi, SDV, VIW get thumbs up.

    I almost forgot Christian Dior Bois D'Argent is the overall winner.

    My wife would like me to smell like old fashioned turpentine and frankincense. Now, while I would do anything for her, including dabbing raw turps behind my ears if that's what she wanted, I'd prefer to find something a bit more... civilized. Still, after 20 years I've discovered that she's right about most things, so perhaps a turpentine/olibanum concoction is something I should check out...
