Topic: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

After many months of curiosity and inquisition, I finally found out what my fiance loves to smell in a perfume. To my dismay, his favorite scent is cucumber. I am an oriental spicy, vanilla type gal, and while I will continue to wear and collect what I Love, I want to find a nice and feminine cucumber scent that doesn't smell too cheap. Help!!!  http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/kapitulation.gif

Hi Dark Curls!

I love cucumber-I love spicy and some vanillic fragrances too, but the scent of a sliced cucumber is so refreshing!

I used to think I would love to keep a bottle of Cucumber (not in database) by Demeter in my purse-it smells exactly like cucumber and nothing else! But the staying power of this note is so ridiculously short, I've never bothered trying to find fragrances that use a nice cucumber note...

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.8390.jpg DSH Perfumes La Plage Sealooks like it's worth testing though!

Good luck! And probably you should find a good lotion and/or cucumber scented oil and seriously layer to make it last!

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

I have been using Vaseline's intensive care- aloe and cucumber body lotion and it felt like such a relief,both for my mind and skin...And I was like..."what does this remind me of???"

What we are looking for dear Dark Curls,is http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3247.jpg Shiseido Relaxing Fragrance

Reasonably priced,cucumber and bamboo,classy and ideal for summerwear...You won't smell like a salad and your man should be happy with it.

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

Thank you everyone! http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/11.gif I ordered a 10ML bottle of En Passant last night, because I love Frederic Malle, but now I am pondering the Shiseido relaxing fragrance or the Estee Lauder Emerald Dream.. http://fimgs.net/b/img/smilies/rodna.gif

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

And for a more 'happy cucumber' option instead of the 'vampy cucumber', try of the same house Rochas:

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2541.jpg Estee Lauder Emerald Dream , it's a strong beautiful wet tropical cucumber. My husband doesn't now I own it ( one of my secret purchases) and each and every time I wear it he asks me what I wear that's so nice!!! I think that actually many men like the cucumber smell! This one though is quite an elegant cucumber, with really good sillage

Be nice!
