    Default Perfume and Cologne

    I've just put together a nicely written, medium length post about my recent interest in learning about perfume and how I developed my fascination. But I accidentally deleted the post. Maybe it's a good thing.

    Anyway, I think it would be interesting for a study to be done on whether there's any link between perfume preference and personality type. But this thread is not meant to be a survey. I'm simply curious of what people like.

    So, what kind of perfume do you wear? Or do you tend not to wear perfume?

    Men can answer this question too. Just replace the word "perfume" with the word "cologne".

    To answer my own question, I own 4 perfumes right now:

    Eau de la Recolte Bleue (L' Occitane En Provence)
    Zen (Shiseido)
    Insolence (Guerlain)
    Chance (Chanel)

    Eau de la Recolte Bleue is my absolute favourite and the one I wear most often.

    I have a small bottle of eau de cologne that someone random gave to me a few years back. It's good for reducing the itchiness of mosquito bites.

    So, yeah, I almost never wear perfume. It has a tendency to make me sneeze, especially if it's hayfever season. I occasionally spray a random tester on my wrist if I happen to walk through the perfume section of a department store out of curiousity.

    I think it's pretty antisocial to wear perfume in public as it's often pretty overwhelming and intrusive (and yes, my occasional sampling is a bit hypocritical). My workplace has an unofficial policy of discouraging it as it's impossible to escape the smell in an open plan office and too many people are allergic to perfume.

    My INTP partner never wears cologne. I don't think he's ever owned any.

    Boss No. 6 Cologne by Hugo Boss

    Casual but classy.

    It's a great courtesy when strangers approach you to say that you smell nice.

    NICE! That's good smelling stuff! Donna Karan puts out some killer threads too. I was in Vancouver a few years ago and ended up in a DKNY boutique shop and splurged $85 on a shirt. It still looks good after years!

    I'm a simpleton when it comes to aftershave/cologne:

    Generally don't. I spent too many years working with someone with severe allergies.

    However, if I do, I wear Calvin Klein Escape.

    I also like a verbena and lemon splash I found at Bath & Body Works.
