Thread: smooth

  1. #1

    Default smooth

    What would be some examples of fragrances that smell smooth,meaning that they are not harsh,they don't bother,they don't smell synthetic,they don't sting your nose.fragrances that form a nice aura around you,and just smell quality,because recently i have sampled some pretty expensive niche fragrances that smell bad,bad meaning that they smell worse than some designers scents.

    Some scents are harsh opening but end up super smooth. Egoiste as mentioned has a rough start (less with the current version) but becomes silky smooth.

    Musc ravageur is similar starts rough then smooth

    Most of the male/unisex Guerlains and/or Dior Homme flankers do know.
    In addition to these also most of the Armani Attitude series, Endymion by Penhaligon's, (vintage/discontinued) Givenchy Very Irresistible to name only a few.

    Smoothness is why I love the way so many of the Dior exclusives wear on my skin, like Ambre Nuit and Mitzah.

    i am leaning to egoiste or antaeus,but i don't know about the longevity and projection of recent versions,vintage is hard to find,those who have it are not that stupid to sell them,what about parfums de nicolai,do they have good blended versions,i read that new york intense is pretty good but besides that do they have other good versions?

    Kilian Intoxicated is about as smooth of a fragrance as I can think of. So is HdP Fidelis.

    Dior Homme Original... definitely very smooth from beginning to end.

    I wouldn't consider the opening of Fahrenheit Parfum smooth with the blast of suede and spice, but the mid and base are very smooth with the boozy vanilla.
