BIC Fragrance Finder

Are you looking for a new fragrance to try and fall in love with? This thread is for people looking for a signature scent or a new addition to their scent wardrobe.


It would help if you have an idea of what you're looking for. If you're not sure how to narrow things down, try asking yourself about


  • Notes? Amber, bergamot, jasmine, leather, just name what you like Smiley Happy
  • Type? Looking for something floral, sweet, fresh, spicy, fruity, woody, smoky, aquatic?
  • Vibe? Something sultry, girly, bracing, polished, simple, extravagant, playful?
  • Place? A scent for the office, first date, weekend day wear, something else?
  • Price? Let us know if you have a budget Smiley Happy


Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I'm popping in to say I was really looking forward to making fragrance suggestions but now I am quite ill with the flu Smiley Sad I promise I'll be back when I'm on the mend but right now I can't think very clearly!!! Haven't been this sick in many years!!!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus   Feel better!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Thanks @Vmaster, feeling better today Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus I just saw your earlier post and I'm sorry you've been sick! It's no fun at all. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better, and I hope that continues and you are well again soon <3

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@lachatonThank you! <3 The downside is I can't smell much these days!

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I love this idea, @pocketvenus ! As someone who sucks with fragrance notes, I'm sure this will be super helpful! I've actually been meaning to ask for advice about a perfume. I love fragrances that smell like one specific thing (ex, a specific type of flower, fruit, wood, ect). I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a perfume that smelled like roses. I prefer rollerballs (they're more budget friendly for someone who wants to try many scents 🙈), but I'm also open to full bottles that are more on the affordable side Smiley Happy thank you! 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder



Fragrances that smell of one flower are called soliflores Smiley Happy Some great, affordable rose soliflores are

  • Serge Lutens Sa Majeste La Rose, fresh cut green floral shop rose. If you want something more musky, try La Fille de Berlin which has a hit of violets as well
  • JO MALONE LONDON - Red Roses Cologne, classic bright red roses
  • Diptyque Eau Rose, light fresh rose - try L'Ombre dans L'Eau for something more dramatic
  • STELLA MCCARTNEY - Stella, powdery woody femme rose, should come in a rollerball size too

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Thank you so much, @pocketvenus ! A few of these are at my local Sephora, so I'll go get samples soon Smiley Happy Thanks for the info about soliflores too! I wasn't aware there was a specific name Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@SpaceLlamayou're very welcome! I hope you find something you really love <3

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

I just recently got the Nest Rose Noir and Oud candle that came free with a fragrance purchase and I am in LOVE with the scent. If anyone knows anything similar to it in perfume form I would greatly appreciate it. 

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder


Dramatic and dark rose-oud fragrances are very popular Smiley Happy You might like

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Hi @Jragon !


I haven't smelled that exact candle, but if I had to guess based on the fragrance notes I'd suggest trying JO MALONE LONDON - Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense, which is a lovely warm floral with rich rose and oud. For other warm roses, I'd try TOM FORD - Café Rose, THE 7 VIRTUES - Rose Amber Eau de Parfum, and AERIN - Evening Rose.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Love this idea for a thread @pocketvenus. Especially since my Velvet is gone and I’m more interested in seasonal scents. Thank you for starting this.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus - This is definitely a thread BIC needs!  Looking forward to people's questions and your answers!  Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Great idea for a new thread, @pocketvenus!  I'll start off--I'm looking for a fragrance with watermelon.  I really enjoyed the Escada Sorbetto Rosso from last year but I'd love to find another perfume with similar notes.

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

not really a perfume (although it should be), but hempz coconut + watermelon lotion smells really good! Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

Awesome list @Vmaster !! @CookieGirl1 the only one I can think of to add is Demeter's Watermelon Lollipop Smiley Happy

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@pocketvenus I've definitely heard of that one but never actually smelled it. Have you?

Re: BIC Fragrance Finder

@CookieGirl1I honestly can't recall as I've smelled so many. I do find this house to be very consistent and spot on with fruity, candy flavours. Not so much with the weirder ones like Sushi and Cannabis.
