    Le Beau Parfum would be a nice gift for her IMO.

    She doesn’t like floral except for Ex nihilo Fleur Narcotique she wears that as well as PDM Delina and Le Labo Santal

    Lol....stripper perfume, huh? Yeah, I guess I can see that.

    I'm only familiar with MFK's male/unisex fragrances, but they make some of the best (and long lasting) citrus scents I've smelled.

    And I love citrus on women. Citrus tends to be very simple and innocent, but quite sexy, too....to me.

    Things like Aqua Universalis are beautiful on women.

    If you really want to get the motor running, consider Cologne Pour le Soir!

    It used to be the Absolue pour le soir by far, but I think it has been discontinued. I second Cologne pour le soir. Rather tame compared to the Absolue, but still has some nice warm ambers.

    Absolue pour le Soir is available only through the MFK website in France now. But that’s my top sexy pick.

    Lumiere Noire Femme is borderline carnal. It's not outrightly floral in the traditional sense despite having rose and narcissus in the notes.

    Ciel de Gum is also a nice resinous scent that could be quite sensuous on the right person.

    Not from the MFK house but Maison Francis Kurkdjian's creation Tihota. It's from another house that he found. One of the best vanilla based fragrances that anyone can own.

    Another vote for Absolue pour le soir. It’s ridiculously sexy and beautiful. Still available to order direct from the MFK web store.

    There really ought to be a thread here

    What fragrance most smells like a stripper perfume?

    ..and in fact there was, about 10 years ago. But reading through it one is left with the impression that those who commented have never been around strippers...er...exotic dancers, as the recommendations for said list were quite lame.

    I suspect a real list would have a bunch of stuff by

    Victoria's Secret
    Prada Candy
    Juicy Couture
    Flowerbomb
    Paris Hilton
    Rihanna
    Taylor Swift
    Katy Perry
    Nicki Minaj

    None (from MFK).
    There are many other houses which have far better stuff, and at more reasonable prices.

    Well, I've only tried BR 540 and Grand Soir from MFK, but Grand Soir was literally love from the first sniff (I must run and spray it NOW). It's not sexy in the modern sense, but very seductive on a deeper level IMO.
    Baccarat smells like strawberry to me, no hospitals, no nada, was almost disappointed. Way too innocent for a stripper.

    Another good option!

    Probably. With the Kardashians, Jennier Lopez, and a bunch of others I'm forgetting.

    According to one source, Britney Spears Curious has sold over 500 million bottles worldwide since release, and Fantasy even more. I've yet to smell either one.
