Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

I'll have to second http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1436.jpg Jean Patou Joy.  I actually love the perfume but it only works on me if it is very cold outside.  Otherwise the civet is... dirty.

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

I think people naming

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.8130.jpg Lush Vanillary

are reacting to the caramel notes. I love this fragrance, and it smells good on me. I could see how someone's chemistry could easily make it turn though.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.7624.jpg Annick Goutal Ninfeo Mio This definetely has a mild, transient urine note that I think is related to the 'boxwood' note.  I could see how on some it would be more pronounced.  I love this perfume though.

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

Roses smell beautifully on the bush but some  rose notes play demons with some chemistry.  Fortunately http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1436.jpg Jean Patou Joy smelled very nice on me especially since my husband picked it up for me in 1966 strictly because he liked the word JOY.  We knew nothing about the smell or notes until I uncapped it. WOW!   14 He's wanted to buy me another bottle, but since I read about the reformulation, I don't want to be disappointed.

The EDT of this smells like urine on my skin. But the pure Parfum version smells like HEAVEN! What's up with that???  91

Weird, I have the EDT and love it! I have a sample of the pure parfum and they both smell the same to me?!

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

I love Yves Rocher Iris Noir, but  can see where you are coming from, Swedish Girl, and perhaps iris note/orris root is to blame? Have you tried any other iris perfumes that give you that same vibe?

Don't beat me up ladies  dumbom but I think http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.455.jpg Lolita Lempicka L de Lolita Lempicka smells like cat urine and I loved it the first time I tried it, but discovered that cloves and immortal flower together give me this illusion smell!

Actually, now my nose associates cloves with this perfume and cat urine! But I love the way real, fresh cloves smell and I love them in apple cider!

Thanks, Conifer- I wish I could take total credit for this one- one of our no longer active Fragranticans gave me that line-   51

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

It's not a perfume but a perfume gone bad that smells terrible ...some  perfumes that their chemicals turn off as  time passed or the heat turns them bad  ...avoid heat and place them in a dry/cool place!!!

I don't know what's wrong with my nose! Other people describe AE as heavenly smelling but I've huffed it many times and get nothing but cat pee.

So sad...  24

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

What a funny topic  21

I actually love this perfume, but as I found an old bottle (perhaps 4-5 years old) with a little bit of this lovely juice inside and sprayed it on, it had gotten bad and started to smell like urine. My mom also commented on that I smelled like cat pee.

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.96.jpg  Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche A little story about this one:

Some years ago this was my everyday perfume and a good friend liked it so much on me that she bought one for herself. In the evening her boyfriend came to pick her up for a night out. His first comment entering the house was: Have you got a cat? She asked why he said that and the answer was: It smells so much of cat urine here. Needless to say who was given the perfume.  smile For me it's still nice, for her a big no,no.

Re: Perfumes that actually smells like urine

I don't know if elderflower is ever used in perfumes,but I used to have elder bushes outside my back door and when they were in flower it smelled like we'd had a visit in the night from a hundred tom cats. I got rid of the horrid things.
