Fragrances

  1. Do you wear perfume? If so, what do you like? Do you have a "signature" scent?

    I tend to switch around. Right now I'm into Marc Jacobs, has a nice gardenia note, floral but not cloying. Also like Pink Mat (by designer Matsushima). I checked out the new Sarah Jessica Parker fragrance and was so disappointed...it was awful! I haven't found my "signature" fragrance yet, always something new and fun to try!
     
  2. i love Chanel N. 5 Elixir Sensuel (i believe that's how it's spelled). i love it so much because it's like Chanel N. 5 but with an extra note that makes it so much better, IMO. plus, since it's oil-based, it's lasts a million times longer and stays truer to scent than water-based perfumes.
     
  3. I enjoy L'Artisan Vanilla...it's woody and smoldering with none of the food smell of most vanilla fragrances. In the evening I use Obsession.
     
  4. It's a toss up between -

    Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue (love it!)
    Clinique Happy
    Ralph by Ralph Lauren

    I think the fact that I vary on scents reflects my personality.. I'm kind of a chameleon. :embarasse
     
  5. i love Light Blue, but Clinique Happy is too citrusy for me - the smell of citrus fruit makes me kinda nauseous, i'm not sure why.
     
  6. Cartier - So Pretty
     
  7. I love "Un Zest de Rose" (Parfum des Rosine) It's a combinaton of roses and citrus. Also, "Olene" by diptyque and sometimes Child - Jo Malone makes some nice fragrances for a change off - I am a bit of a perfume person but really prefer only French.
     
  8. My signature scent was D&G Light Blue before everyone got into that scent too. Now I wear Gucci Pink. I get the most compliments when I wear Gucci Pink! :biggrin:
     
  9. For everyday wear, its usually one of my Escadas: Ibiza Hippie, Island Kiss or Rockin' Rio. For special occasions: Chanel Chance.
     
  10. I never wear perfume. Smells 'get' to me. I like to sniff the bottles in the stores but I never put it on. As a kid, my mother had to keep her perfume in the kitchen. She'd stop by my bedroom before leaving for work to give me a kiss, THEN she'd put on her perfume and walk out the door. I didn't want that kiss if she was already fragranced!

    I'm afraid that my daughter (age 5) is going to like perfumes. Yesterday, I let her spritz something in a store on a tester strip. The largely missed the strip and spritzed my hand! I had to find a bathroom pronto to wash up.
     
  11. Ginger - I'm a fellow L'Artisan fan! My favorite scent is L'Artisan's "Tea for Two"...reminds me of warm, vanilla chai. I always get compliments for wearing it. I recently purchased the Vanilla scent, and to be honest, I'm a little disappointed with it. It might just be that I have been so used wearing "Tea for Two". It's getting harder to find now, and I've stockpiled bottles of it. During the warmer months, I also wear "L'au Par Kenzo" and Fresh's "Sugar Blossom".
     
  12. i switch between Ralph by Ralph Lauren, Clinique's Happy Heart, and Britney Spears' Curious. I'm not too fond of her but I just love the scent of her perfume!
     
  13. Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille CoCo
     
  14. ^^ Funny! That's the one my daughter spritzed on my hand yesterday! It smells nice but still....not for me.
     
  15. I love all Ralph Lauren perfumes... I choose one for the day depends on my mood. :smile:
