    Default Whats the most attractive lady's perfume to you? (Feerie appreciation & a thief's journal)

    IMG_20200531_000432_1.jpg

    Obviously here's my choice,
    I found this earlier tonight in the depths of my home-studio, it's Van Cleef and Arpels Feerie, an ex's from a year ago. I sprayed it on a friend to get an idea which one it was (my ex had her fair bunch of perfumes) and wow I really like it, I believe it's a very attractive lady's perfume, the most attractive in the non-animalic side, the first hour of blackcurrant+smoky rubbery violet+ hints of some clean note (aldehyde?), light airy rose and powdery Iris is so cute! Then I decided to layer it with HL and now it's an official Aphrodisiac! I can't imagine wearing this myself and also couldn't imagine such a tacky bottle hold such enjoyable a scent I'd want to bury my nose into, I'm not ashamed to confess I won't be giving this back and will be using it in my bedroom for the foreseeable future! It sits on the opposite side of animalic musks and leathers I usually find attractive, this is innocent and elegant, (opposite attractions?) it's not a full and complete perfume, it's airy with holes and light projection, mysterious while being a light cheerful scent and that very incompleteness makes me want more of it! I will need more experience with it to figure out the notes but my first impression is attractive as f!

    The lady who wears it has so much to do with it......

    I had an ex girlfriend in the early 90s who wore Bob Mackie for women. It was intoxicating. Over the years I’ll be walking and smell the trail afteR passing someone and it still hits me. I’m sure it’s different these days but it’s the one that always turned by head

    Lubin's Epidor and Louis Vuitton's Apogee come to mind.

    But a mediocre perfume on the right lady is still better than the perfect perfume on a lady I am not interested in.

    Mitsouko edt is a favorite of mine, but there are so many. Chanel No. 5 edc. I also like women in fragrances marketed to men.

    I really like perfume on women, especially if they have taken care to choose it for themselves carefully and apply it with a deft touch.

    That being said, I do got nuts for ANGEL and BANDIT.

    Many of her collection but to name a few which I love on her are:

    - Robert Piguet: Baghari (this stuff is so good!)
    - Coco de Chanel (older edp bottle) Quality all over the place

    and in the cheaper segment:

    - 212 Sexy (it really smells sexy!)
    - Nina Ricci (original) (lovely fresh)
    - Clinique 'Happy Heart' (formal gem)
    My Top '11':

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Armani: AdG Profumo
    - Jacques Bogart: Furyo
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)

    Without a shadow of a doubt, Narciso Rodriguez for her.

    It had an almost caveman like effect on me.

    Yes the black one is very sexy, also the Poudree flanker. I think all NR women line are up there, probably my favorite feminine line. Even the NR for him EDP would be a sexy perfume on most ladies.

    Mostly classic fragrances, especially but not exclusively classic Chanel ones, with more recent creations by classic houses like Guerlain also included for good measure, several near powerhouse feminine Balenciaga like Le Dix, a few vintage Shiseido and/or Serge Lutens ones.

    Yet so far the most attractive fragrance have sensed was likely the Tosca flanker Bella Firenze. Though the elegance, looks and charm of the lady wearing this may have also been a factor, this fragrance managed to be even more than just seductive or merely attract compliments, attention and positive feedback, also conveying a quite unique sense of Mediterranean joie de vivre, warm, cheerful and also very fascinating at the same time.

    In this oreder:

    Molinard Habanita
    Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d'Iris
    Amouage Lyric Women
    Guerlain Samsara
    Prada Infusion d'Iris
    Van Cleef & Arpels First


    Own all of them.

    First would be at the top, next to Habanita, if he didn't have those bitter heady flowers (narcissus & hyacinth) for an hour.

    I think Habanita is in my top 5.
    Love the juice, love the bottle.

    Admittedly I blindbought Habanita for the bottle and I love the scent on myself, it's a less sad but rougher L'Heure Bleue.

    Portrait of a Lady (original formula) by Malle... but that one I prefer wearing myself.

    On the right woman, I would love something like Hasu no Hana by Grossmith, Nombre Noir by Shiseido, Mitsouko (vintage) by Guerlain or Risque (pour Femme) by Roja Dove.
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)
    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6)
    Anat Fritz and its reissue, called Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    8) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie

    Rougher?!
    For me it has no roughness at all. It's as smooth as it gets, with perfect projection.
    I sniff it to exhaustion.

    I never had the opportunity to test L'Heure Bleue.
    EDP?
