LOL!  I was thinking: geez I guess after I work out I must smell, but I can't tell.  =)


I <3 happy!  I use lancome's magic or miracle, idk what it's called but it's pink.  I also have the DKNY green apple (don't know what that's called either), VS's pink & body mist.  I LOOOOVVVVEEEE the body mist so I use it sparingly when I'm with the hubs b/c he picked it & brought it back after he went on a "mission" to the mainland.

 

Have fun trying to find your "smell"  =)

mamarazzi and Nohea, your notes made me laugh!


I actually can't wear most perfumes. I am really scent-sensitive, and most perfumes give me crazy allergic reactions — watery eyes, sneezing, etc.


But for some weird reason, there is one scent that I CAN wear, and that's the pink DKNY cologne — the Fresh Blossom scent. Which, luckily, I also happen to like. Whew. Oddly, I seem to be allergic to even the other scents in the DKNY Be Delicious line. That green version that Nohea mentioned? It smells so pretty, so I tried it on a few weeks ago while shopping ... and by the time I got back to the car my eyes were tearing up so bad, I had to wipe it off with a baby wipe. Weird, eh? Go figgah ...


mamarazzi, if you need a new scent, go to the counter at someplace like Macy's or Sephora. They usually have nice salesladies who will help you figure out what kinds of scents you prefer — floral, fruity, spicy, fresh, woodsy, musky, whatever. They they'll suggest a few in family of scents you like.


I did that at Macy's, and then the lady let me take home a little test vial of the scent I liked. She recommended I try actually using it a few days, because any scent will change slightly with your body chemistry. That's how I found the one scent I can wear! ;)


Good luck on your search!

My very first perfume, my DH bought me years ago, is Escape by Calvin Klein. It's very subtle and not overpowering. I too am sensitive like Esme. I start sneezing and get watery eyes. Usually the floral ones are the ones that will trigger it. It has to be non-floral or fruity smell. I just got into the Clinique Happy Heart and Escada Rockin Rio (which i don't think i see in the store anymore).

I LOVE Victoria's Secret #55.  They don't make it anymore though.  It's such a soft sweet smell.  At least that's what I smell...I hope it doesn't smell like a box of crayons to others when I wear it.

 

Isn't there a place by Sephora at Pearlridge where you can make your own fracrance?  I can't go in there.  It makes me want to pass out from all the different scents.  Same with the perfume aisles at the store.

I too am sensitive to smells but not as bad as Esme and I do smell bad also LOL! Wink

 

My very first one was a men's cologne drakkar or something probably hehehe!

 

Then I remember getting Cool Water (?) YEARS ago,  is that what it's called? haha

 

Now, I got a green tea perfume spray that isn't too bad, these were all given to me btw as I don't buy my own.

 

Those Sexy Expressions or whatever it's called they have at Walmart and Longs etc, I like one of those, I think it's the yellow one Smile

I have a lot of Victoria's Secret and Bath & Bodyworks sprays.  I also wear Chanel No. 5 and Romance by Ralph Lauren (my favorite).  I love the smell of the Green Tea perfume by Elizabeth Arden, but it never stays on me long.

I'm also on the hunt for my signature scent.  I've never worn perfume (except for high school days because everyone had a bottle of Cool Water LOL).  I tried going into one of the Perfumemania stores...whoa...I couldn't tell one scent for the other, the smell of those stores are so overwhelming. I got a bunch of samples from a Sephora order and just when I think I've found my scent, the next time I wear it I don't like it anymore.  The hunt continues....

I LOVE perfume and cologne! I love when guys wear cologne.  The hubby wears armani mania.  LOVE it.  Scents always bring back memories.  HA HA HA.

My scent (and has been since I met the hubby) is j'adore by dior.  i also love lancome's miracle.  before j'adore it was chance by chanel.  i absolutely love it.  my friend wears it now so it makes me happy. HA HA HA.  I hope that doesn't sound weird.  But I like to smell it.  I love the fruity perfumes, but I can't stand it for too long.  I get nauseous and I get tired of it quickly.  I get really picky about the perfumes I wear.  I had one by Escada that I loved, but I forget what it's called.  I love Calvin Klein's Escape.  I absolutely love Ralph Lauren's Romance.  Wore that one for years, too!  I also had a DKNY one I wore for a while, but forgot that one, too.

NO!  NO!  NO!!!

 

I get massive headaches from ANY type of scent!  I even made my husband stop using whatever crap he was using when we first started dating!  Ewwww!!!!!

 

Thats why I can't stand walking past what I call "the stinky stores" like Abercrombie & Fitch and that other smelly one..... I can't remember the name..  hahaha!! 

 

The whole section in VS???  Yeah, I totally hold my breath when I walk through there!

 

*bleh*

When I'm feeling cheap (which is most of the time) I just buy those sprays that they sell at Wal-mart...it's a nice light scent and I don't mind if I go through the bottle in a couple of days.  Smile

I have worn Happy, Escape, CK1

Usually I wear Opium and I love it, but ever since I got pregnant this time, it is kind of gross to me.  No complaints (that I know of) from anyone else, but still...if I can't even stand myself...

I just found a fun, young, light scent from Sephora---the Hello Kitty roll on perfume!  Ha!  It is fabulous!

I also love Angel.  They sell it at Nordstrom...that is an all time favorite.
