Cologne/Perfoom/Smelly Goods?

So.... BPAL is a new thing for me, and I've been delving into their site.

After conversating about it a bit, I now am curious as to what cologne's and perfooms and teh such that people like to wear, and/or smell on others.

I'm a fan of Armani Code....not too strong, and a nice subtle, at least for me, smellgood.

Again with the Armani, I like their Aqua di Gio on other guys. Smellygoods!

For girls, I haven't smelled too much that wasn't tolerable. WELL, that's not true, I just don't know what they were called. :rolleyes:

So.......What do you like, all of you'ns?

(all on other people, unfortunately. I'm not much of a perfume wearer...yet).

For men, I love Armani Code and Tommy Bahama. Both of these smell especially yummy on one of my best friends.

For women, I'm a big fan of White Linen (as I've mentioned elsewhere, my mom wears that) and one of the older Abercrombie scents (I know...don't shoot me. It actually smells really good!).

That's all I know the names for, but they've made a pretty strong impact.

There are some good Abercrombie colognes out there...I just don't know their names. lol

Personally, I wear Japanese Cherry Blossom from Bath and Body Works right now--I got a big ol' bottle of it for Christmas, and the pretty-bottle line (I guess they call it their signature line?) calms down quickly and doesn't make me sneeze while the alcohol wears off. I switched to it from anything that smelled like coconut-lime. Turns out I love that smell on others, but not so much on myself.

I love summer because all the ladieses smell like coconut oil. I-m so happy

For guys, I'm not too familiar with scents honestly. I think I have smelled the Armani stuff Elle mentioned, but only in a magazine insert. = P My SO wears Curve in a little black bottle, and sometimes I steal it and wear it too. = P I like men's scent mixed with women chemistry, it's always a nice change.

One of my friends gave me a BPAL imp of Endymion. I think it's nice and smells girly or boyish (but not manly) depending on the mood of the wearer.

I like 'good' smells. Meaning that I will put on cologne, just to smell it. Not alot, either, just some, especially when I don't need to wear it....like to bed. Or I'll have a cheap bottle of say...axe or something goofy, and spray my room/car because I don't care for the smell, even if it's smelling perfectly fine otherwise. lol

My all time fave is Intuition by Este Lauder. Usually I wear a Cool Water for women knock off, Pleasures Delight, Kirra, or softer sweet pea or orchid mists. I love perfume and have had to actually stop buying perfume because I'm running out of room to keep all of them!

My fiancee used to wear Axe all the time until I gave him a bottle of Curve for men. Now he switches from Cool Water for men, Curve, and Nautica. Plus he washes with Irish Spring soap combined with Nautica and his own personal smell drives me crazy! I usually sit there and just smell him for a minute before we go out anywhere. Wink

What stigma is there around Axe? *runs off to google*

It's very much just a mass cultural eye-roll; it's considered the bastion of adolescent male primping. Most people think it smells awful, which it does when it's used as a catch-all deodorizer/air freshener/cologne, etc. Too much is VERY much too much with Axe, and teenage boys are pretty well known for not really understanding the concept of just enough. Also, it's cheap and chemically.

But I really do love the way it smells on him. Blum 3

I only like certain Axe scents, and I generally like those in body wash form rather than as a spray. Gillette can be nice too. Old Spice, though... *gags*

(I haven't ever knowingly spent much time around a guy who uses fancy cologne, so I make do with the scents I actually get exposed to.)

Kittae's picture

I think the only folks who should wear Old Spice are older men--I mean, full white hair kinda stuff. I'm a bit young to be looking at that age group myself, but my boyfriend's mom's boy-toy wore Old Spice, and he smelled AMAZING. I-m so happy

Andrea's picture

My first boyfriend wore Old Spice, and I always assumed that it was part of his natural smell that I just didn't like. Not too long ago my current boyfriend had to borrow some of his dad's deodorant in a pinch, and he smelled almost exactly the same as my ex. It was very unnerving.

Freydis's picture

Therefore, I can't refer to it as a 'good' scent...cause it makes me unhappy every time I smell it, as it makes me miss him terribly. Sad Axe Phoenix is nice in small quantities; but my all-time fave men's colognes have to be Drakkar Noir (if the wearer hasn't bathed in it, that is) and Davidoff Cool Water for Men. Women's ones, on other people: Lauren by Ralph Lauren, which my best friend's sister used to wear all the time and I just loved it; and Jovan White musk. For myself, Bath & Body Works Sunflower body spray, which is really bright, yet subtle, once the alcohol evaporates; and Victoria's Secret VS2000 Aries (which, 9 years later, I still have nearly 1/2 a bottle left).

I really like the way Axe smells and I feel really, really dirty thinking it. I can't even really disagree with the stigma...most of the guys I've met who wear it are overconfident boys who think they're god's gift to women and are really quite the opposite. I still like the way it smells, though.
Mad props for finding a good one who uses it...hang on to him. Smile

In general, I prefer guys to be totally natural when it comes to scent. If they can get away without deodorant and not smell, that's kind of nice, and if not something really mild, and maybe musky, usually appeals to me.

I don't ever wear perfume, but I like the way my shampoo smells and my deodorant is scented with something non-floral called "Radiant SIlk", whatever that means. I hate florals. I even like the way fresh flowers make my kitchen smell, but when people wear flowery perfume it always makes me think of old ladies and never manages to smell like the outdoors and fresh flowers. Food smells are always good on other girls, like vanilla and brown sugar, or various fruit things. I don't mind some perfume on some other girls, and some of the girls I know...the way they smell is intoxicating, but I have no idea what it is they use.

That's why I love Wet Garden... it smells like an actual flower garden, not some terrible, old lady floral smell. I dont use perfume very often though, so I usually wear it in lotion form.

Either that or I use pure rose oil, which smells exactly like fresh cut roses.

but it helps! Smile

I'm a big BPAL girl; that's all I wear now, and it's easy to fit it to my moods; I have two big IKEA boxes full of BPAL. The cool thing about BPAL is that, compared to most real perfumes, it's really inexpensive; that makes it relatively easy to collect. I hear you shriek, you're kidding! Oh no, I'm not.

My favorite perfume line is Annick Goutal. The scent I always wore before BPAL was her Eau de Charlotte--black currant, vanilla, mimosa, cocoa. It's sweet, but light, and positively edible, but doesn't "read" as a foodie. I wore it the day Sir and I met, and he still thinks of that as "our" perfume. Well, "our" perfume is about ~$40 for a bottle of eau de toilette, the most diluted strength of perfume. BPAL is between $15-$30 for a bottle of perfume oil, the strongest strength of perfume. Granted, you get almost 2 oz of eau de toilette and 5ml (almost 2/10ths of an ounce) of BPAL, but the BPAL goes a LOT longer. The eau de toilette has to be re-applied several times a day to get the same effect as one BPAL application.

My other favorites were jawdroppers (pricewise) like Joy. 1 oz eau de toilette = $60+. I have expensive tastes, what can I say, and the House of Patou makes amazing perfumes. I loved YSL Paris in the '80s, and men LOVED it; I had guys in my office following me around sniffing, going, "I need to get a bottle of that for my wife, that is luscious." $60+ for one ounce eau de toilette. It's a wonderful, full rose scent.

I can't remember right now which one of my BPALs is a dead ringer. I need to get that database project going. There's a spreadsheet by which one can keep them all straight, but it doesn't work for me. Anyway, my favorite BPALs rotate depending on my mood and the season. Sir's favorite on me, famously, is Death Cap. My spring selection is Agape, Lovers in a Rice Field, White Rose, Red Rose, E Pluribus Unum, Passionate Shepherd, and I can't remember what else; I'm not in front of my drawer(s). As the weather warms, I'll be swapping those out for fresher, summery scents like Boo Bam, Opuhi, Marae and Tiki Queen (I love the Atomic Tikis). When I don't know what to wear and I just need to smell delicious (but not irresistable to Sir), I wear Mama-ji. Ask Fairnymph. She nearly huffed me to death.

On Sir, I've always loved plain old Florida Water. My favorite BPALs on him are, in order, Blockhead (OM NOM NOM), Frederic and Calico Jack.

I only have bottles of Blade of Grass and Yggdrasil, but I have imps of Anubis, Midnight, and Devil's Claw. Grass is my only spring one, but it smells so light and sweet that I haven't gotten tired of it yet. It's really lovely, and though it seemed to have no stay when I first bought it back in the fall, it's been almost 12 hours and I can still definitely smell it. Such a nice dry phase... *huffs*

ETA: Also, in the limited editions, The Host of the Air from the Bards of Ireland series sounds interesting to me. Are you trying it, or do you know anyone who is?

Whip, Magdalene, Rose Red, Chuparosa, Iambe, Kurukulla, Mictecacihuatl (which you can't have--it's all mine, mine I tell you!), Rose Cross...I could go on. I suggest you run this search and dig around, or join BPAL.org and dig around in there; there are note recommendation threads.

Citrus: Whitechapel, Santa Eularia des Riu, Envy, Huesos de Santo (if you can find it), for starters. Do you like orange, lime, grapefruit? Lots of grapefruit scents.

Spice: Pickled Imp! My favorite non-musky spice.

I can't find a grapefruit scent by ANY perfumer that holds for more than a few minutes on my skin, and it's one of my very favourite smells. Sad

I have a problem huffing deliciously-scented people...I've been made fun of for doing so before, in fact! I can't help it! How people smell is, to me, how I imagine how people look to most other people. Scent is my primary sensory function. I categorise people mentally by how they smell the way others rank people by appearance.

Miss ML, when are you getting your velvets? I can't wait to hear what you think of them. Also, am I crazy to be curious about MB: Underpants? Do you think I'd like it?

I'm going to research those other non-BPAL scents you like (if I can wear them). Have you tried any CB:IHP or Violette Market, btw?

I dunno! They've been ordered, and the Lab's turnaround time was so fast on my last order (ordered 4/9, CnS today :O ) that I wonder if business is okay there. I mean, a week turnaround? When's that ever happened?! The long version of, it's likely that bottles will be reaching decanters sooner rather than later.

Underpants: I have some! A teeny bit of sniffie! I dunno if you'd like it, but I wish I'd known you wanted to smell it!

Violette Market: I have a bunch I just got in a trade. I need to go through them.

I didn't want to smell it when I was in Portland. But since then I have fallen in love with MB: Closet and Antique Lace. WTF.

The Cthulu reviews have me VERY excited - I was afraid of a strong smoky/medicinal/dry scent but it sounds more fresh/zesty, yay! I just ordered my bottle of Pink Kitty and I have a bottle of Nudie coming to me from someone who didn't like hers. Very curious to see about Tiki (reviews sound promising) and Panther (no idea what to expect, really!). That IS really fast for the lab.

I was frimped a Violette Market that didn't work on me - my skin warped the vanilla in this scent (which was dark chocolate/sandalwood/vanilla) - but it was so gorgeous sniffed and initially, and I found out I can actually *wear* it. I have a few things coming to me to try. I'd love to see your reviews when you go through yours. Smile

but my current fav is Haiku from Avon - should be on the serious cheap stinky side of things, but it's a really nice musk with just a hint of a light floral something, but it's the muskiness that I love.

Other than that you'll find me wearing a very very light spraying of Shalimar. My mom was given a bottle of the stuff when she was a baby, and as a kid I fell in love w/ the antique bottle & the smell became a memory thing. Apparently, 50yr old, dehydrated Shalimar differs greatly from new, wet bottles. I'm still trying to decide which one I like better some days.

but alas I am also at a loss and could use some recomendations.
I want to find something that's really me.
I love spices like clove and cardamom especially, but not something too strong.
Also like peppery scents, but i sneeze alot as it is and that may not help me.
not big on the dry flower smell, but i do like lavender, rose, and jasmine as long as they don't come off potpourri-ish.
Grapefruit smells make me salivate. Sandalwood is awful.
woody, earthy or mossy smells also lovely

I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for (obviously). either something nice and dark and spicy or peppery, maybe with some burnt nut or sugar tang to it. or something really clean and crisp that is subtle yet different that what we usually smell.
I have to admit, I'm always getting those little free samples from the bay and stuff but most of it smells the same to me. like dusty flowers. but i did where clinic happy for a year in junior high, lol.

my mum wears chanel no.5 I believe and my sister is the permanent vanilla bean, so anything similar to that is probably not so great for me (not cause it doesn't smell good, but it makes me think of them not me!) and anything chocolately would make me crave SO BAD (always craving chocolate, if i smell it? it's over, chocolate binge and no one better get in my way)

if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear em. I know I seem finnicky, but most of the BPALs I've heard of all sound so good I just need to narrow it down cause I have no clue where to start.

See if you can get a decant of it, because you can't buy an imp. That might hit the spot exactly. You might try Pickled Imp for major spiciness, but PUT IT ON, don't judge it in the decant/bottle. For grapefruits, get an imp of Cheshire Cat, Croquet--actually, if I were you, I'd go to the Mad Tea Party and pick out an imp pack. I have yet to find one in there that isn't lovely, and the one that wasn't--Mad Hatter--is great on Sir. I'd also dig around in Rappacini's Garden, where you'll find the infamous Death Cap. If you like earthy, you'd love that.

He now associates the Chanel smell with me, most particularly dressed up for some event / dressing up for him, but generally as "oh that's her" kind of thing. So I like it.

I just realised that my perfume collection costs as much as my wine collection. Eek

Prior to BPAL I didn't really wear perfume because I didn't like most of it and I have very sensitive skin, that has only grown more sensitive (rosacea fail!) over time. I did wear RL Romance for special occasions, and it's still a scent I love.

Rather than list all my bottles (70ish?)...I'll just say that I tend to like light scents that combine 2-3 of the following: floral, fruity, green/herbal/grassy, musky, aquatic. But I also really like oakmoss, metal and cream notes, and lately, worn leather. My tastes have been morphing a lot, though... and there's lots of other stuff that I really like in the right blends. That's just the general idea. Biggrin

I don't like spicy (except for carnation in moderation and saffron), buttery/heavily foody, smoky/incensey, or dirty. And I HATE wisteria, red musk, and pennyroyal. Those will ruin any blend beyond repair - no other notes can make up for them.

I've always wanted to wear perfume or something beyond standard antiperspirant stick, but I'm too much of a coward to try putting smelly things on my skin and being around other people >.>;

I also don't know enough about what things smell like to know what might be good on me, haha. I mean, I know what basic spices and fairly obvious florals (rose, lavender . . . er, that's it) smell like, but beyond that, I'm clueless. Saffron? Musk? Patchouli? What do these smell like? :?

Add in an allergy to imitation-lavender scent stuff that happens to be in a *lot* of public bathroom soap dispensers and my aversion to trying perfumes keeps building.

I do love looking at the BPAL selection, though, largely because I love the descriptions and the sections.

... by the amount of smelly goodness going on around here, since I don't ever wear anything but a deodorant. Heck, I keep away from aftershave balms most days (although my skin could use a regular application of one of those, at least during the colder season) due to the fact that I find any smell on myself (that isn't myself incredibly, irritatingly distracting. OTOH, Mei's reviews sound absolutely fascinating, and I know that there are a couple of smells out there that I find utterly intoxicating (like the spicy, fruity smell of the flowers of that one, ancient rose bush in the in-laws' garden that seems to have been killed off this last winter, sadly).

Anyone else have that problem, and how do you deal with it, if you do?

Andrea's picture

I have that problem. Spraying my body before I get dressed seems to help, if it's a light and sprayable scent. I get weirded out when my clothes smell like anything other than Gain detergent. Also, using a pleasantly scented hair product (stay-in conditioner, "smoothing serum," detangler, etc) after showering can give you some smelly goodness without having to change the scent of your skin. I'm much more tolerant of that than I am of perfumes and body sprays. (I did try putting regular perfume/body sprays in my hair, but that usually ends up giving me headaches.)

I don't get it, but not only do the 15 yo boys here wear more hair product than the girls (seriously!) but the girls steal their deodorant sprays and use on themselves. No idea what it's called on your side of the pond, but here it's Lynx, in several flavours including but not limited to chocolate and a duo pack that can be worn separately or combined.

I usually wear Clinique Aromatics, or for painting the town red, Opium. I love it but it's just too much for daytime wear. I'm partial to ylang ylang, but it usually comes in an overly floral (florid?) blend. Lavender turns straight to menthol on me, and it's in so many oils and soaps and the like.

I've sort of burned out on bpal, sadly-- it just took more energy than I was willing to invest to keep up with all the limited releases and decants and swaps and the like, but I still wear Fallen and Lotus moon from time to time--which is odd, because I'm not a fan of strong florals otherwise, especially not rose.

Guerlain's L'instant Pour Homme has become my regular, and I sometimes wear Demeter's Honeysuckle when I need a quick bit of summer--it would be too strong if it didn't fade so fast.
