No, smells like a sexy man.   ;)

 I would love for him to wear Hugo -  Hugo Boss.  But I will say Polo matches his body chemistry and you can smell that wonderful smell all day.   :)

I’ve started wearing Patchouli by Murdock of London.  It costs £70 for 100 ml but it smells really nice.  I don’t know if I can trust myself to be left alone in a room with myself.

^ There's a White Patchouli made by Tom Ford for women which is divine.

Speaking of Tom Ford, my favourite perfume ever is Black Orchid. It's brilliant. But again, pricey.

Niki de Saint Phalle by Niki de Saint Phalle
Tiffany by Tiffany for Women
Calvin Klein Eternity for Women
Estee Lauder Pleasures Exotic for Women - instant summer!
Eau de Fraiche parfum from a small gift shop in Montmartre, Paris, in 2004. Never could find it again, but finally found one last year that is a bit similar called Unpredictable Desire by Glenn Perri for Women.

For men, the cheap stuff is fine w/ hubby and me. Stetson Black and McGraw by Tim McGraw.  :o

I have many favorites, although most I can't wear them myself - weird pheremones. So I enjoy smelling them on others

Estee Lauder - Pleasures, White Linen Breeze, Beautiful, Intuition and Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia (these last two I can wear)
Lancome - Tresor
Chanel - No 5 and Black
Coach Poppy Purple - this one I wear daily

Everytime I smell it or hear the word patchouli all I can think about is High Fidelity: Get your patchouli stink outta my store!

That being said I have smelled the fragrance Sky mentioned and it really is lovely.

My girls have both the orange and the purple. They smell very good on them. I haven't tried them yet. I think the purple is called Coach Poppy Flower. Not sure which was new last year, but one of the Coach fragrances was and I think it was Flower.

Fragrances smell very different on me than just smelling them on others or on a test strip. When looking for a new fragrance, I like to put it on and walk around an hour or two before I decide. Most perfumes do not last. The ones made with true floral essence last best. Years ago the Tiffany fragrance rep told me that if one uses deodorizing or antibacterial washes it interferes with the fragrance. Tiffany is a true floral essence as are the Chanels. Most are no longer made of true floral essences. The off brand Undpredictable Desire could be as it lasts quite a while and it's cheap! I guess because it doesn't have a big name behind it?

Actually, maybe I should say floral oil, not essence. Not sure which term is correct.  ;)
