    I get distracted by Ambre 114 as it's so intoxicating and find myself trying to pick out the notes when I'm wearing it. I think it's the "freshly baked cookie syndrome", where you just get totally distracted by the scent for a while.

    I have that feeling with Bentley for Men Intense.

    I think By Kilian Back To Black brings me to a place outer space.

    I'd say I sometimes get distracted or transported, yes.

    Definitely. I used to save Gucci Pour Homme for times when I needed to be really creative because I felt like it took me out of my surroundings. That strategy didn't work long though. Once I really fell for the stuff, I wore it enough that the effect was lost. Ah, but then I found L'Air du Desert Marocain! Boy, I felt like that one took me somewhere else! But once I really fell for the stuff, I wore it enough that the effect was lost. Ah, but then I found Interlude Man! Wow, I felt like that one took me somewhere else! But once I really fell for the stuff, I wore it enough that the effect was lost. Ah, but then I found Royal Oud! Man oh man, I felt like that one took me somewhere else! But once I really fell for the stuff, I wore it enough that the effect was lost. Ah, but then I found...

    ...sigh.

    Well, not really, but the closest I can remember to something like that for me would be when I wear by Kilian Incense Oud.

    That only happened to me once, which was the first time I wore tf noir de noir. It created a image in my and in a sense put me there. Was a nice experience��

    Even if not constantly, still quite frequently. Also happens with most of the fragrances I like/own/use more or less regularly. It might have been a lesser, thus not main, but somehow noteworthy reason why I chose a specific fragrance over another.

    Yes. When I wear Bond no. 9's Manhattan, I drift back to Kyoto, Japan... where I was born & raised...thinking about my Grandmother and the old-school Japanese way....

    I only have a small sample of epic woman, but when i apply it on my wrist... when i sniff it...i actually see in my mind people walking the silk road.... carrying silk, gold and spices... i also picture a beautiful woman with long black hair.... kind of like the amouage commercial....
