    Default RED which fragrance

    If you would have to assign the colour red to a fragrance, which one would it be and why?

    Habit Rouge and probably not just because of the name nor even a certain psychological bias it can almost naturally create, far more because it has the sensation and almost even the suggestion of a texture akin to red velvet in an almost regal splendor of timeless, impeccably stylish luxury

    Teatro alla Scala would be a deep burgundy red, darker than the red on its packaging - theatrical spiced 80s rose. And POAL with shrieking rose blackcurrant jam. Trying to think of a 'red' perfume I love would be harder. I like Teatro but never wore it and sold it on.

    Une Rose by Frdereic Malle - the color releflects the notes well.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Bond no. 9 Chinatown---Light red. Not pink.
    +1 Rubj Vero Profumo
    Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait by MFK -- also ruby red
    Arte Profumi Velvet Rouge -- can't help but think of the color of red velvet cake though the fragrance smells nothing like red food coloring
    And maybe Sécrétions Magnifique--kind of "dried blood" red.
