    I've had a lot of nice (older) man comments recently on the newer Diorling. Unexpectedly nice in the heat.

    This is by far the one I get the most compliments for, especially from men.

    The ones I've worn and gotten the most flattering comments from men are: Madini Olive Flowers, Shalimar, Angel, Diva, Trouble and Fracas.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    I've found that I'm a sucker for stone fruit notes (genus Prunus, plums, cherries, peaches, apricots, almonds etc). Non-white florals (rose, carnation, violet, lilac, frangipani). And patchouli

    So smelling something like Le Baiser du Dragon, Dolce Vita, Yvresse or Black Orchid on a woman will do it for me.

    From men, for me:

    Most comments of "sexy" (bizzarely) are for Mure et Musc Extreme. Which to me still smells safe, basic, comfortable and pretty, not sexy.

    BEST comments are for the Reglisse Noire, it's not a crowdpleaser but the guys who appreciate it, really seem to appreciate it wholeheartedly. Not necessarily in a "you are attractive" sort of way, but "what are you wearing, you smell so so good! so different!"

    On me, men seem to like Flowerbomb, L'Ambre des Merveilles, and Queen. I adore Bulgari Black, and wouldn't mind more external validation when I wear it, but alas...

    My tastes are pretty classic so far- a traditional (also including, but not limited to, the non-reformulated or rarely reformulated ones) classic fragrance by Chanel, Guerlain, Givenchy, Worth, Dior, even the more pedestrian and affordable houses of Vanderbilt, Elizabeth Arden are among my absolute favorites.

    However, the most, not just alluring and sensual, but also luxuriously complex, stylish and almost nostalgically, conservatively beautiful fragrance ever sensed as a ladies SOTD was Bella Firenze by Tosca- underrated and little known, but also richly, multi-layer Mediterranean fragrance.

    I don't have a whole lot of experience, but... On my wife black orchid is straight up little-black-dress-sex-in-a-bottle. I also love smelling hypnotic poison

    as a male, one of my favorite fragrances ever to smell on a woman is Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, I know it sounds crazy because theres so much quality stuff out there but I have to admit it does it for me every single time. Im also partial to Phaedon Pluie De Soliel
    "Stings the nostrils, in a good way. Im going to be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline."

    Current Top 5:
    5.) Santa Maria Novella Muschio
    4.) Dior Homme Intense ( Vintage )
    3.) Dior La Collection Privee Ambre Nuit
    2.) Creed Aventus
    1.) Xerjoff Ibitira

    I love the way Amor Amor and Dali Mix smell on my wife. Surprisingly, Dali Mix did not smell as good on my sister's skin. Love Dalimix!

    In general:

    Florals
    Leather Chypres
    Floral Chypres
    Mossy Woods Chypres

    Intelligent fragrances like vintage formulations of Rive Gauche, Aromatics Elixir, Mitsouko, Joy and Cabochard are the most exhilarating things I've ever smelled on a woman. Many others including things like Arpege,1000, Bandit, Tresor, Paloma Picasso, Y and Tabu as well. Smelling Mugler Cologne on a woman at the local co-op was also surprisingly affecting. :-) I generally dislike most orientals on women. Things like L'Heure Bleue, Attrape-Couer and Opium are exceptions.

    As someone wrote, "When you manage to appeal to both the reptilian brain and the neocortex of menfolk..."

    Poucher: “Chypre perfumes are generally classified as belonging to the extremely heavy, very clinging type, and curiously enough when copious quantities are worn by elegant ladies the peculiar fragrance is much appreciated by masculine taste.”

    I have found that my own husband could not care less, provided I don't smell of BO. There are things he certainly does not like, but my wearing a fragrance has no obvious effect on him. That is not to say that I have no effect on him, I certainly do, but it has naught to do with fragrance. So the most important question is what fragrance has an effect on the particular man you are wanting to appeal to.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    If I went on a date with a woman who wore Black Orchid... oh muh gawd. SWOON. I may buy a bottle at some point, but I think it'd probably be way over the top on me.
