    Default Name a fragrance and the person you envision wearing it

    Name any fragrance that interests you and the type of person that you would envision wearing it. When you smell the scent that you named, if you had to close your eyes and imagine someone wearing it, what comes to mind? You can name specific people (celebrities, historical figures, fictional characters, etc.) or simply a type of person (occupation, character traits, etc.). It can be a fragrance that you enjoy or one that you dislike; there are no rules. Feel free to name multiple scents, or give a different perspective on a fragrance that has already been mentioned. You can elaborate on your reasoning if you find it necessary. I'm curious what you all will come up with!

    To get the ball rolling, I'll start things off with an easy one and will chime in again later in the discussion.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Dior Homme sticks out here as one that doesn't fit. I'd also give Fredo something more...clubby.

    I was writing about Une Fleur de Cassie and trying to come up with who would wear it and Marion Cotillard came to mind. It is sexy without being obvious or vulgar and very French chic.

    My username is after a piece by composer John Cage (and I thought it was funny in the context of a fragrance forum). Cage was a deeply philosophical man with an open and creative mind but also possessed admirable compassion and warmth, he was also close to the earth and loved foraging for mushrooms. I've got 2 for him:
    CDG Hinoki for it's calm meditative feel but also sharp modernity
    Malle Dans Tes Bras for it's warmth, tenderness and mushroomyness
