The Devil has all the best tunes………. The Perfumed Dandy’s Guilty Pleasures Hit Parade

Heavens above!!!

Or should that be hellfires below!?!

Satan, so they say, has all the most enviable songs… but does he have the best scents as well?

To kick off our little trip to the dark side in “The Perfumed Dandy’s Guilt-Free Guilty Pleasures” season a poll…

No, not the heathens-dancing-to-their-doom-around-a-maypole sort of poll… a vote… an election.

A Special Edition of The Hit Parade!

From the cornucopia of questionable perfumes you mentioned in the recent grand confessional of clandestine fragrant passions I have selected a dozen favourites.

Cast your three lucky votes for any of the tantalizing twelve scents below to decide which diabolical aroma The Dandy will wear this Friday 14 March 2014.

Charlie by Revlon

Musk by Jovan

Purr by Katy Perry

Lily of The Valley by Crabtree & Evelyn

Joop! by Joop

Fame by Lady Gaga

Tweed by Lentheric / Taylor of London

Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears

Red Door by Elizabeth Arden

Chance by Chanel

Brut by Faberge
(Vintage & Wild Card Entry)

Dolce and Gabbana by Dolce & Gabbana

You have until 1200 hours, that’s midday in old money, Greenwich Mean Time Thursday here in London to cast your vote.

The winner will be announced around the same time on Friday!

In case you’re thinking there are a few of your favourite guilty pleasures missing from this pick… it’s surprising just how many of them you’ve already voted to the top of The Hit Parade!

Not so secret after all it sems…

Yours ever

The Perfumed Dandy.

      Isn’t it the best… Raquel Welch no less on devilishly good form in the original Bedazzled. Elizabeth Hurley, of all people, would play the part in the remake some three decades later!

  3. Fabulous shots, Perfumed Dandy! Here are my votes:

    Fingers and toes are crossed.

  4. SallyM

    Excellent poll! I vote for Tweed, Tweed and Tweeeeeed!!

  5. Bee

    I am quietly amazed at all this love for Tweed! I cast my votes for Britney’s Midnight Fantasy – and I regret nothing!

  6. Marco Chau

    My three votes go to Tweed by Lentheric / Taylor of London.

    i feel a little sheepish taunting someone i just “met” to wear ANY of this rot. however, since you asked so nicely: BRUT !!! x 3 . and suffer silently and across the pond please. then go shower, bathe, shower, get a salt scrub, shower, bathe and then let’s play some more!

  9. My bigger sister did wear Charlie. I can still remember how it smells.

  10. Dear Mr Dandy

    Tweed and Charlie Blue. I like Tweed and would like it read your view on it. However, I tried Charlie Blue last year and scrubbed it off vigorously. I may feel differently now my tastes have morphed somewhat, but it was such a shocker that I dare not try again.

    Your friend

    PS Actually I would like to see all of these reviewed, but I guess there’s still time!

    • Dearest Iscent
      Shall that be two for Tweed or two for Charlie? Will your inner demon or angel win out?
      Of course, if you would like to see these all reviewed, just keep recommending them and they may, in time, make it to The Hit Parade proper!
      Yours ever

      • Dear Mr Dandy,

        Ah, I didn’t read the question properly- something I often admonish my 7 year old son for on homework night! I love the Jovans, so a vote for Jovan Musk, one for Tweed, one for Charlie Blue and one for Katy Perry. Her music is bubble gum pop and much too young for me, but I can’t help liking it. Maybe I will feel the same about her perfume!

        Your friend

        PS I LOVE the guiltly pleasures thing!

    Looks like Tweed will win the day, but out of those I find Chance the most annoying and evil though this is I’d relish a review on it!

  12. Alice

    Oh dear, I’m the guilty party that confessed to sometimes wearing Chance (hangs head in shame), so my three votes go on that delightful fume!

  13. Mary Beth

    Tweed, C&E LotV, and Charlie (if it’s the original!) – otherwise D&G Red. Can anything be more ‘in your face’ that that one? Oh – and, Dandy – you must choose mine as Friday is a ‘special’ day for me.

    • Dear Mary Beth
      A ‘special’ day!?!
      I feel you may be in luck for Tweed stands a good chance of romping home.
      As for D&G Red…. I can almost smell it from here, a few years away from last encounter!
      Yours ever
      The Perfumed Dandy

  14. Brut! (if you absolutely have to wear one of these 😉 )

  15. One vote for Brut (love the girl’s saucy smirk in that ad!), one vote for Jovan Musk and one for Charlie, please.

    The first picture was a bit of a jolt for me, Sir Dandy – for a split second, I thought I mistakenly wandered into a very, very wrong website.
