Prince Perfume Collection

On the topic of Prince's womens perfumes. The only one I'm familiar with is 3121. I personally haven't smelled the scent. Wondering if anyone owns 3121 or any of his other past perfumes. I'm thinking about purchasing a bottle from Prince's collection and I would appreciate any feedback and suggestion(s).

Thanks smile

I have the 3121 perfume and wear it often. It's nice, kind of musky. I bought a few a while back and will be selling one on ebay when I get around to it.

Eventually every cloud runs out of rain.

I bought a few bottles of 3121 at Target. I think some of them arestill in the packaging. I used it a couple of times. Everyone always said I smelled good - and wasn't expecting something like that on a guy. smile Nothing strong, just a spritz, maybe two. Perfume or cologne shouldnt get there 10 minutes before you do.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I have it and when I wear it my friends say it smells like purple.

I also got some essential oils off eBay a few years ago. Not sure how legit they are but one was called pink cashmere and the other was 319. 319 smells musky and sensual. Pink smells kinda flowery, girlish. I really want to know exactly what's in 319 because I don't wear it often as I don't want to run out.
Surprise, surprise.
Another treat. Another trick.

There was also Get Wild. Some didn't like it but I think it's a very sexy scent. I also have a few if the 3121. But I like Get Wild.

Thx to everyone for the comments. My purple interest is officially peaked. I read the notes on fragrantica.com (see link below) and the scent sounds wonderful. I'm going to see if I can find a bottle of 3121. As for "Get Wild" and 319, I can't seem to find any info on the NET about them. Is the perfumes still available for purchase?

I'm interested in the 3121 perfume as well. Just hoping it wasn't tested on animals (Prince's protégés don't count, har har).

I am not aware of any other Princely "aux de toilette" besides this...



I didn't realize I still had it in my collection... that ought to tell you how often I use it. wink

I got it as a gift. I do believe it was available through mail in 1995, as a companion to the Get Wild single (the label lacks a date but indicates it was made exclusively for prince ). Oh, it will make your senses go wild... trying to figure out what the hell it smells like, exactly... bottled sweat? Ha It's a floral musk (reminds me of a manly dandelion). lol To be honest I like it less for the scent, than I do for the novelty. razz

Leave it to Prince to design a bottle as savy as that. Really does makes a statement wink Thx for up loading the images of it for me. As for your novel review, not surprising to me at all. I'm picky about my scents as well. I don't own many perfumes (mostly designer types Chanel N5, Narciso Rodriguez (Pink bottle) Calyx, Youth Dew, Fracas by Robert Piguet and Velvet Robe by Apothia. Oh and few drugstore brands, but the only one I wear in DS line is Sand and Sable by Coty. The rest of the DS line scents sit in lovely bottles on my dresser looking pretty. Just for novelty sake. What's another bottle added to the collection? If 3121 does smells pretty on my skin to wear comfortably, I'll be trilled. And if it turns out the scent doesn't react well with my body chemsitry, I'll display the purple fuild proudly on my dresser for years to come. Satisftied Prince fan either way, right wink

I bought 5 bottles of Get Wild for $5 each at the Prince Celebration at Paisley Park back in 2000. I gave four as gifts and kept one. I loved it so much; wish I had bought more.

Apparently, yes. Now, I'm wondering why Prince wouldn't promote his own perfume? http://www.hollywoodrepor...ion-312066

$5 each? Thats awesome! I'm curious about the scent. Wish I had a chance to try it back in the day. Oh well. 3121 will have to do wink

I remember when I went to find 3121 in stores and read it was sold at a certain dept. store exclusively. I went to the counter and asked the woman, she was an older lady, I said, "Do you carry Prince's cologne, 3121?" She looked at me in complete disgust and said, "I have NEVER carried ANYTHING, by Prince."

I wanted to school her on why she should but I just chuckled to myself and walked away. Just the way she said it was like I wonder if she had something really personal against him. Perhaps a scorned lover, my head canon imagined.

I bought a bottle in the NPG Store in London. Very sweet flowery smell and very high quality. One spray and you smelled like flowers all day and all night. I only used it while going to Prince concerts, it was too feminine for everyday use. To my taste anyways. I prefer more wood like perfumes/aftershaves. Still have some left over, but in 20 years the perfume degraded and the smell has become a bit chemical 😅

LOL lol

Honey, there's people like that in every mall. They feel like they're better than you and have an uptight spoiled attitude and only carry the brands worth carrying in their stores and anyone who isn't on their level are peasants or sub-human.

Maybe if Prince would've worn high fashion clothes and collabed with Versace the lady might've considered carrying anything from him lol

I can't go to the mall without a single incident like this happen to me. A few months back I was walking through the mall and this lady was giving out free samples and when I passed by in front of her she did not make eye contact with me and looked as if she purposely was ignoring me and ended up giving a sample to the person after me. What a bit-

Hey, I ain't got no money, but honey I'm rich in personality.

I really want that Get Wild perfume though eek It's very Prince-like.

Even if I don't like the scent/notes I'd still wear it......unless it smelled like sweaty socks or underwear
