What Ho! It’s 20 scents more one never knew a gent could wear?! The Perfumed Dandy’s Library Catalogue #8

Has The Perfumed Dandy mentioned that since starting out on his amazing adventure in the Wicked Wild West that is the World of Women’s Perfume he has amassed from dear readers an astonishing array of now over 500 suggestions of once forbidden ‘female fragrances’ that you consider fit for a gentleman to wear?

Well, The Dandy has most certainly mentioned it now!

Being ever one to share both the love and the wisdom, I have taken it upon myself to spread cognisance of these suggested scents far and wide each Saturday (this week Easter arrived and so the post has been delayed until now).

Such is the premise of our weekly peek inside the The Perfume Dandy’s Library Catalogue.

What follows is the eighth installment of ’20 scents one never knew a man could wear’ that may tickle either your fancy or your funny bone…

If you would like to further the cause of one of the fragrances, getting it a step closer to the dizzying heights of The Perfumed Dandy’s Hit Parade kindly respondez-vous to this post.

Alternatively if you believe you have the perfect perfume for The Dandy but can’t see it listed below simply visit ‘Suggest a new scent or recommend an old one’ to put the name forward.

Allons-y!!

More Vaudeville that burlesque?

  1. Dear Mr Dandy
    A great selection with a bit of everything! I’d like to know more about Premier Jour and the beautiful Dita Von Teese. But I’ll happily read whatever you review.

    Would love to hear about Calandre and Ivoire (worn by moi over 30 years ago). Was just gifted these two vintage and pristine…divine!
    Also, Noa went through many a bottle as it was non-offensive and adored by children.
    can’t wait for these to come!

    • Dear Brie
      Yes, I think it’s the vintage of the Ivoire that I need to get my hands on… the current reformulation received quite a big push here towards the end of last year.
      I’ve been led to believe it was the precursor to the whole Balmain range being made available again.
      Yours ever
      The Perfumed Dandy

  3. I’m looking forward to the review on Ivoire, Opium and Dolce Vita. Yes, Dandy, I’m already aware of your feelings for Angel. 😉

    • Dear Gripping
      Oooops. Perhaps I gave too much away with that comment on Angel.
      Actually I think what I was trying to say is that I find the endless flankers that Mugler produce a little mind-numbing.
      Angel was not for me, but it does have some admirable qualities!
      Yours ever

    I would like to know your opinion of the new Ivoire and also of Dolce Vita. I used this one habitually from 1995 and in spite of several reformulations it is still … happiness.

  5. Nena

    Liqueur de Parfum happens to be my favourite version of Angel. And I’m dying to know what Dita Von Teese Rouge smells like, since her first perfume smells wonderful.

  6. Lilybelle

    Calandre and Ivoire, please.

  7. Lilybelle

    And also 1969, please!

  8. All I can say here is that I absolutely love Ivoire. I compared the vintage and modern a while back, and the vintage is slightly better. I got it from The Perfumed Court. But both are soapy, soft, and wonderful. I look forward to reading your opinion!

    • Dear Joan
      Thank you so much for that insight into the difference between vintage and current versions of Ivoire.
      I’m hopeful to get my hands on some of the old stuff to inform the review, but it’s always cheering to her that a modern perfume isn’t a complete imposter.
      Yours ever
      The Perfumed Dandy

  9. Miss Misty

    Balmain Ivoire old or new.
    They are of course different scents but the new one is actually pretty good.

    Hello Perfumed Dandy
    While there are some delightful scents on the list I feel that Davidoff is calling your name. The bottle is less than amazing so maybe it is hiding a delightful little known gem?

    • Dear Rabbit
      Welcome to The Dandy’s…. do make yourself at home!
      I love nothing better than a hidden gem, so that could be right up my street…
      Your selection is noted down in the leather bound ledger.
      Yours ever
      The Perfumed Dandy
