What's your favorite fragrance on a girl?
What's your favorite fragrance on a guy?
**That's right, paid account expiring soon, which means I must create frivolous polls.
Helional's a chemical (this
suggests the word itself is a commercial brandname)

"Good performer in detergents, liquid detergents, alcohol and shave creams."
Thanks, Z! It sounds like it's just an industrial fragrance, and a made-up one at that; interesting that it's listed among those fruits and exotic oils in the description of Innocent.
"with top notes of ozone"
Funny, when I smell ozone on somebody, I assume they have something to hide. Or that they clean swimming pools.
Yeah, the name really makes it look "natural", though I suppose if it smells nice, it comes to the same thing in the end. Not sure what ozone smells like ("electrical" according to descriptions I've read, but I don't think I've ever actually smelt it)

Re: Helional ®
I suddenly just realized I may have been thinking of the smell of negative ions (which are good for you) when I thought I was thinking of ozone (which isn't that good for you). We need a Google Odor Search...

Re: Helional ®
Excellent - lots of information by knowledgable people and sume ;) I'm pretty sure now that I wouldn't recognize the smell of ozone. However, Don reports having smelled ozone on people - I think he knows the smell because he solders. Negative ion generators are popular in Japan, and we had one in our kitchen. It smelled great (I liked to stick my face right up near the little generator points), and *really* knocked out odors.
p.s. "Ozone is an oxidizer and a poisonous gas, similar to
chlorine gas (used in WWI as a chemical weapon)."
Uhhh... Heehee, and -
"in some public toilets they ise uv lamp so that the
ozone produced will kill germs in the toilet."
"Ozone is an oxidizer and a poisonous gas, similar to chlorine gas (used in WWI as a chemical weapon)."
That's America for you - everything is either the greatest thing since sliced bread or the imminent end of the world. Or both at once, sometimes.

Ooh, don't get me started on sliced bread. *shakes fist at invisible enemy*
I don't wear fragrance. Neither does Jess. Maybe I should.
I do remember that, at least sometimes, in High School you would wear vanilla extract, or something that smelled remarkably like it. I loved to sniff near you. You always smelled so good.
Wow, good memory!! Yeah, it was plain old vanilla extract, from the big bottle. From there I moved on to clove oil, mmmm... These days, I wear all kinds of things.
Don wears Fahrenheit, and I dated a couple of guys who wore Obsession. See what Jess thinks of those - but then don't come near me, because they make me seriously gushy.
I don't know much either, but I like walking behind people! Everyone here wears a lot, contrasted with where I used to live, where subtlety was a bit more highly valued.
oh man I LOVE ANGEL!!!!!! i never had it but i got one of thoses tester things and i loved it.
The original Angel is soooo nice. I had a hard time choosing between it and Innocent.
I don't know much of anything about fragrances. Except I know when I like something, and I know when I don't. Heh.
I like to wear patchouli and sandalwood. I only rarely wear real perfume, in which case I like Clinique's Happy or Eau de Dali
. Which, now that I think about it, are very different from one another.
I have known Josh to wear cologne exactly once since I've known him, and I'm not even sure what it was...
If you like patchouli and sandalwood (I do, too!), you should try Indecence by Givenchy. (I remember you commenting about the bottle a while ago... oh, here it is!
) I like Clinique's Happy a lot (I made Don try it on once). Eau de Dali, I HAVE to try that!
I need to remember Indecence next time I go someplace with perfume so I can try it on...
