    Default red fragrances for women

    my gf says her favorite fragrance she ran out of is lacoste red... there's no such thing right? i mean for women?

    there's style in play which is kind of feminine.

    then there's Eau de Lacoste L.12.12. Red which i haven't sniffed but don't expect to love.

    can you guys recommend me better red fragrances for women? she's fixated on the red-ness.

    I'm not exactly sure what this term refers to. It's so subjective. A sort of juicy depth? Anyway, you might like 'Montale- Red Vetyver.'

    Looking at the Lacoste fragrances listed in the directory, l'm almost certain she is referring to L.12.12.Red. Just because it's listed as masculine, doesn't rule it out. Many women here wear fragrances marketed to men.

    There are more than a hundred fragrances listed with "Red" in the name, with a huge variation in notes from fruity to spicy to floral & probably everything in between.

    L.12.12.Red appears to be mainly fruity with a touch of spice & vanilla, so perhaps you need to focus on these notes, & not the name?

    I'm not sure myself. Habit rouge feels red to me. Old spice. So i guess orientals? Aren't there more orientals in the feminine category?

    yeah i noticed it's an eau so perhaps she could wear it. she's not a perfumista at all that wears masculines because they have specific taste. she just mentioned that and fresh out of the shower fragrances were her favorite.

    That's exactly how I perceived it the few times I tested it. Very faint.

    it's confusing dealing with a noob. i think she said she didn't like sweet fragrances. definitely not into florals... so why the red?

    There are red bottles, but I don't know about "red" scents.

    Try to describe what she already wears.

    Maybe Montale Red Aoud? This might be too sweet.
