Maybe have your horse decide. Do you still have Murray? Take some samples out to him and watch his reactions, does he prefer one over the others?

Before You Do That...

I read that horses have no "get-used-to-it" function re: fragrances; they smell something as strong later as they did the first second, unlike humans! The article suggested wearing no fragrances around horses, for that reason! It also cautioned against fragranced hair/body products around horses. As far as my faves, I love all flower scents, plus coconut & vanilla. I just got a vanilla body scrub.

I like the smell of the outdoors, if that makes sense. If not, then I mean like the smell of fresh air, or that smell that you smell by a water fall or something.

No better scent than the one God blessed us with. :)

That is a great idea! Thanks Jamie! I still own him too!

Grooming - The fine art of brushing the dirt from one's horse and applying it to your own body.

I am another sucker for the smell of a horse. A guy can just go rub his cheek on a horse before our date and I can't get close enough LOL. Other than that, for like household scents I love sage brush after a rain and the smell of yellow and white clover is absolute heaven (especially when mixed with horse LOL). As for body scents, I like the more natural scents like fruits and flowers. Something that smells nice and clean but not too sweet.

I love the smell of fresh lilacs, coconut, and fresh cut grass!

More along the lines of what you're looking for I would say plumeria, gardenia and lilac are all great.
Couldn't have said it better! And I'm with you on the plumeria too.
