Sweet Smell Of . . . . . ?

So as I was browsing numerous blogs, I seen this idea and it got me quite interested. When picking a new perfume I simply squirt and if I like it goes on the maybe list. I never think what tones or flowers the perfume may have thats standing out to me.
So i thought I would have a little investigation into this, and find out if certain notes stand out in the couple of perfumes I currently own.
So my perfumes are : 

The Blurb -Naughty Alice is a sensual and audacious new fragrance inspired by Vivienne Westwood s playful and highly creative imaginary universe. Sexy, musky yet comforting, Naughty Alice enlivens the senses and is the perfect example of modern femininity. The fragrance transports you to a sensual dream world where everything is possible and your adventurous curiosity can be unleashed. This chic feminine and provocative new floriental perfume leaves you with a naughty twinkle in the eye.

Perfume Notes he modern powdery elegance of black rose and carnal violet is sublimated by the warm sensuality of the ylang-ylang.

Paco Rabanne Lady Million

The Blurb -Ultra-feminine, glamorous and excessive. The Lady Million woman embodies the ideal woman. No man can resist her and the best won't ever be enough for her!

Perfume NotesIt has fresh top notes of bitter orange, fleshy raspberry and neroli, followed by floral notes of orange blossom and Arabian jasmine and base notes of patchouli, honey and amber.

Marc Jacobs Lola

 The Blurb Sexy with a flirtacious wink. A warm floral bouquet with a signature note of lucious fuschia peony. Designed by Marc Jacobs as an over the top bouquet exploding from the bottle.

Perfume Notes - This stunning fragrance from Marc Jacobs has sparkling fruity top notes of pink peppercorn, pear and ruby red grapefruit. Ultra feminine floral middle notes of rose, fuschia peony and geranium. Warm and seductive base notes of vanilla, warm tonka bean and creamy musk.

Valentino Rock and Rose

The Blurb - Rock 'n Rose by Valentino is the new fragrance for the alluring young woman. 

Perfume Notes - It is a fantasy rose scent that combines a blend of fresh fruit, classic florals and sensual notes that together create a vivid impression of this young woman.

So this was just a fun post to see if any notes stand out, and to me it seems that I generally go for florally/rose scents.
It was also quite funny to see what company's say to describe a product like ... ' for the alluring young woman' or .... 'The Lady Million woman embodies the ideal woman. No man can resist her and the best won't ever be enough for her!' haha ... like really??

What are your signature perfume notes??
