    Generally speaking, I find floral scents centred on white flowers to be beautiful and feel sentimental around jasmine:

    A La Nuit
    J'Adore L'Or
    Sarrasins
    Batitto d'Ali
    Honour for Her

    Other scents can be awesome, evocative, intellectually challenging, moving etc., but the above to me are 'just' beautiful.

    I also probably wouldn't put any straight-up masculine scents into that camp. Don't know why. I have a slight feeling that this sentiment may be shared with some of you as there are a lot of fragrances mentioned in this thread that are feminine or at least feminine leaning (classic Guerlains, a couple of Malle's, Chanel).

    This thread provides some interesting material for thought. Upon considering it, I realized that the Top 5 most beautiful perfumes I ever smelled are not the same as my Top 5 favorite perfumes. Just as the Top 5 most beautiful people I've ever known are not my Top 5 favorite people.

    A perfume needs to have so much more than beauty to make a real claim on my heart.

    What a question... I was thinking about this few days ago.

    Original Guerlain Jicky (I thought why is it so familiar since I couldn't recognize it at first... those banned (carcinogenic) musks were something else)
    Original Jacque Fath Iris Gris (believe all the hype)
    Lanvin Arpège Extrait (Oy Gevalt)
    Caron Nuit de Noël (the Mousse de Saxe base, so dark, cool and edgy, all at the same time; we have nothing like that to speak of).
    Caron Narcissus Noir (you know that pollen heavy, robust narcissus note but add minerality to it... now, how did they do that?)

    Its not a 'perfume' per se but not to mention Ensar's Kinam Rouge would leave the list lacking.
