    Default What Is The Fragrance That Is A constant Reminder As To Why You Participate In This Hobby?

    So I am talking about the fragrance that whenever you spray it makes that hairs on the back of your neck stand up. The fragrance that is a constant reminder as to why you love perfume? You can list more than one if need be.

    For me....Bois Du Portugal and/or L'Air Du Desert Marocain.

    Thanks!!

    On a whim I'd say Baccarat Rouge 540 purely because of how enjoyable it is to wear with its contradictory facets and depth.

    Possibly Vintage Tabarome, but with the caveat that I don't actually own it and have only worn it a handful of times.

    I've inhaled a lot of fumes (and a couple of fragrances too) and this one really is something special as its just monolithically transparent. Sheer genius how it was put together and its evolution through its performance as it wears like a Magic Eye picture would smell as different olfactive images pop out depending on where it is with its show. Great fun.

    Bois du Portugal by Creed for the complex layers of scent that unfold over hours and get better as the day goes on and Mousse Illuminee by Rogue Perfumery because its so good it puts a smile on my face every time its worn.

    Oh man. Honestly, without even wearing it - Fahrenheit. Just smelling the atomizer head gets me every time, haha.

    Probably Creed Jardin d'Amalfi. I don't wear it very often, as I find it a little feminine, but whenever I smell it, it exudes such perfection that I can't help but smile.
