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!!!

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

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... 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!

Kiehls has a nice Cucumber Essence Oil with a roller ball applicator

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 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! 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..

this is the only one pure and wonderfull cucumber i ve smelled- and i love cucumber in a perfume- but unfortunatellly lasts about ten min, if that!

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

Dark Curls,
I have a suggestion that could please both you and your man!! Rochas Alchimie

It is sensual, vanilla, cozy & cucumber!!
What else can a man wish for?!
Good luck!

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

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

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume??

+ 1 to Emerald Dream
I guess it's the right cucumber

Re: Best CUCUMBER perfume?? 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!
