My obsession with perfumes comes in waves. I was really into perfumes a couple of years ago. Ahhh...the time I spent with Hugo Boss "Woman" and "Femme". Good times
However, I haven't worn anything for about two years now. I can't stand having any of my old perfumes on me and even going to the perfume section in a mall makes me nauseous. I guess I'm in my fresh air stage at the moment.
But a hint of the right aftershave or cologne on a right man, just a bit so you'd have to be really close to feel it...that is just...swoonworthy...
So my question is, how many of you girls wear a trademark scent? What do you put on?
J'adore by Dior
J'adore is a soft, elegant floral scent that's great for feeling that early-morning freshness, or a refined sophistication, without the heavy musks of Chanel perfumes. It also combines the delicate and powdery white-florals with earthy notes of Amaranth wood, rich Damascus plums, and including a few spicy undertones. Dior has created an excellent arrangement of all these different scents, where neither distinct characteristic empowers the other. While I admire this perfume for its unique balance, I don't recommend it to the hard-core, or even moderate perfume enthusiasts. You'll want something with a more outgoing personality. I've never been the person to wear fragrances unless I find one strikingly pleasant, and even then, I prefer some understatement. Don't know about anyone else, but I'm not keen on having the entire room smell my perfume. It should be a scent that I can individually enjoy, or anyone standing semi-close enough. And it works for almost any occasion.
Two other favorite perfumes: Ralph Romance (lush, warm florals) and Ralph Cool (a spunky fruity-floral musk), both by Ralph Lauren

Something light, fresh and crisp. Preferably with an invigorating, citrus blend. I'm currently looking a similar scent offered for women. Thinking about trying Lacoste.

My signature scent is Wild Wind by Gabriella Sabatini. Sadly, it's no longer being made, so I occasionally buy bottles from ebay and stuff to keep wearing it. It was the perfume I wore when I met my SO and he very much has a reaction to that perfume, to the point where he cannot say if he likes the smell, he just strongly identifies it with me. So whenever he smells it, he instantly gets flashes of us together
I do have other scents as well, amongst others, the MAC perfumes (love the pink and black one) and although he bought those for me, and he loves em, they don't have the same emotional meaning to him
I personally totally get turned on by the deodorant Nivea for men. It's ridiculous, I know, but it just melts me completely. The Playboy for men one is also awesome
I do enjoy cologne, but just a hint of it, so you get pleasantly surprised when you hug someone or kiss them on the cheek. Nuzzling in a guy's neck who's wearing the right cologne as well as the right amount of it can be like heaven
Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.
60% of the time it works 100% of the time.
