What scent on a first date - old dog, new tricks?

Topics of conversation
...to get a reaction to that "special" scent, the date may be a total "dud" as far as perfumes are concerned. So, just show your personality - like dalmajen says - and forget about making a big impression with that well chosen scent. It may not be noticed at all, unless it is applied too heavily. It is...

What scent on a first date - old dog, new tricks?

...But with joking aside...this can be a big dilemma for a lot of women who are entering the dating world, at a more mature age. Just consider...they probably have had a full life..grown children..perhaps grandchildren..They are now alone. No husband..kids all doing their own thing etc. They don't want to come across as a Newbie to relationships..but in fact, they are newbies) I still believe if you are ever in this position...just be Who you are..don't change your persona or your fragrance preferences! I always believe...what you feel comfortable with, will be the best decision. That goes for clothes, shoes, make-up. perfume etc. So...don't let that first date be daunting...just be yourself...that is more than enough!

What scent on a first date - old dog, new tricks?

...wear something warm like L'Ambre des Merveilles (inviting and cozy but not in-your-face sensual) or Une Rose Chypyre by A. Tauer. As DiginDirt and Dalmajen said, wearing a distinctive frag kind of sets the tone. I also think of Mona di Orio's Les Nombres d'Or Musc, which is more subtle than it sounds, a...

What scent on a first date - old dog, new tricks?

...Digindirt:I should probably choose to wear something elegant and unoffensive but I would probably decide to wear a Tauer. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression :wink: I Totally agree!! I would wear something different, and distinctive! Something quite bold and wonderful! Tauer #12 would be just perfect, or Alien Essence Absolue! Might as well show him who you are, from the very beginning! :wink:

I Must Have It!!

...Cryptic:I went berserk a few months back and bought about 20 bottles. That cured the itch for a time, thankfully. :oops: :shock: 20?? Wish I had done that with my favorites from the 70's!

I Must Have It!!

...Digindirt:Yves Rocher Voile de Ambre. Had to have it AND. A backup bottle within a week of sampling.. Also, Boucheron Trouble troubled me until I got a big bottle. You really love Voile de Ambre....It is an amazing frag., especially for the price!

I Must Have It!!

...Wichapi:My latest obsession was Creed Love In Black, but I cured it. A bottle is on its way. Prior to that it was Keiko Mecheri Datura Blanche and Private Collection Un Crime Exotique Parfumerie Generale.Currently I'd love Bond No.9 New Orleans, as well as Julitette Has a Gun Not a Perfume. Wow!! You must have a very large dressing table! :shock: :D :lol: (just kidding Dear) I knew you were lusting after Love in Black...glad to hear it's on it's way! :wink:

I Must Have It!!

...Dlane1953:Rose Barbare by Guerlain. I have a small sample which I use judiciously, since the cost for a bottle is high. What a divine fragrance--I won't be content until I have a bottle sitting on my dressing table. I know the feeling! My obsession is Divine L'inspiratrice. And I won't rest till it's on my dressing table either! :wink:

I Must Have It!!

...The reason we get samples is to explore new Houses, and new fragrances. It might be a mainstream or designer frag, or a newly discovered Niche. Have you come across something lately, that you just can't stop thinking about...almost an Obsession?? You can feel the scent pulling you in, even when you haven't applied it that day) We can't just drop everything, and run out and buy every beautiful perfume we try, we would have to be almost millionaires to do that! But, joking aside..Which is your Obsession, or Must Have at the moment?

Best web shops for samples

...Hello Gsav..and Welcome! Yes, samples are a wonderful way to discover new fragrances, and new loves, or even dislikes. I firmly believe in samples, as things today are very expensive..and as you pointed out, you have a family, and other things you must make priorities. The two sites you listed are very good for samples. I see you reside in the U.S...so you are also lucky to have many wonderful stores to try fragrances. Lucky scent is a very good online sample store, and this is also a good site for samples.. http://theperfumedcourt.com/ You can also order decants as well as samples). Compare prices etc., and if something attracts your attention, by all means, get a sample!
