    Habanita is my "signature scent". It's amazing but quite heavy:

    Evening after a hard rain. A lot less dust for one, but there's something else.

    I like this the best... but haven't tried the new formulation, I don't know if I will

    I use this occasionally and it's good to a bit too strong

    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Y...Cinema-92.html

    "The top note is delicate and softly fresh (clementine, almond blossom and cyclamen). The heart reveals jasmine, peony and amaryllis. The drydown is warm, opulent, and balsamic with amber, musk and sweet powdery vanilla. The fragrance was created by Jacques Cavallier."



    It smells like a French girl at the cinema supposedly. (Actually it kind of does). I wear it often.


    **edit: I found this picture for it.

    I want to see a picture representation of every perfume before I purchase from now on.

    I'm a very expensive girl...

    my favorites are

    Creed Love in Black
    Carla Faracci
    Floret http://www.vanityfair.com/online/bea...onia-s-flowers
    Burberry Touch
    Cannel Mademoiselle

    I'm not a French perfume girl. I much prefer Russian and New York.

    I can bath in Lily, honeysuckle, and this one type of plant on Martha's Vinyard that is exquisite...I'll try to find the name of it.

    I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

    Lucky You. http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/L...-You-8971.html I've occasionally switched to other things, but I always end up going back to this because it suits me so well. I get a lot of compliments on it, too. This site is fun!

    I find it interesting how the same perfume smells different on different people.

    My favorite scents in general (as opposed to in perfume) are probably sandalwood and jasmine.

    My new favourite is Lush Furze. I also really like the scent of coconut oil - using it as a body moisturiser is cheap, effective and makes me smell like a tropical holiday, it's probably the best value beauty product I own!

    L'eau d'Issey Eau de Parfum Issey Miyake

    Complex floral tones resembling lotus and white lilies.


    Flower by Kezo

    Sweet/musky scent. I get the impression that it complements girls of either middle eastern or eastern heritage. I wear it some days anyhow.


    Byredo Inflorescence.

    Thanks goes to @Uniden for reminding me of this scent. I keep wanting to purchase it, but it keeps being too expensive .

    I don't wear perfume, but I love the scent of bookstores, chococolate and cinnamon, tobacco and an evening in summer.

    Like others here I'm allergic to most perfumes and the smell of them generally give me headaches (or asthma fits - take your pick). However, the least offensive ones for me are the ones that smell like a very light soap, or lightly scented laundry detergent (heck, I even have to watch out for laundry detergents setting me off).

    Essential oils aren't too bad, though, as long as they're very light florals.

    Amber casts infinity of shadows, and my Avalon had cast many of its own, because of my presence there. I might be known on many earths that I had never trod, for shadows of myself had walked them, mimicking imperfectly my deeds and my thoughts.

    My mom collects perfumes, so I grew up spritzing myself constantly with what i found to be the most delicious of all scents. I love so many of them.

    Last year, I was in this little underground shop in Kuwait, where I picked up a 2 dollar oil-based nutty/fruity perfume that I just utterly love. Even hubby loves it. I can't believe I bought only one. I asked my mother to pick me up as many when shes down there; she only found 2 :_;

    Winter scent is Opium
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Y.../Opium-93.html

    and Gucci eau de parfum (It's discontinued but I still find it)
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/G...arfum-684.html

    "Something inexpressively lovely and wonderful advances through the crystal, nearer, nearer. And, oh, inexpressively terrifying. For if it were to touch you, if it were to seize you and engulf you, you'd die; all the regular, habitual daily part of you would die … one would have to begin living arduously in the quiet, arduously in some strange, unheard of manner."

    also love http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/S...ura-11258.html cause it feels like an enhanced version of the above, but unfortunately what makes it initially "better" to me is amber - which for some reason in perfume tends to get me headachy & sneezey after a while...

    (it's also safe to say that anything that looks yellow in a bottle will be "too warm" for me... I tend to go for not chokingly sweet pink, some more pronounced whites and less grassy smelling greens.)

It smells like raspberries and jasmine and I don't know what else, but it suits my skin really nicely. It smells a bit strong imo though.

    When I want to perfume, but something lighter, I go with Demeter fragrances. They have some pretty friggin weird scents, but some really subtle nice ones too. My favourites are Earl Grey, Pumpkin Pie (during the fall), Green Tea, and Gin & Tonic.

    favourite smell? napalm. in the morning.
    A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows the other. Mao Tse Tung

    I used to love Chanel V only.

    Last year I found a lovely French Gardenia, and now I like nothing else.

    Awesome thread!

    This is what I wear daily; it doesn't last long and it's kinda cheap, but it smells delicious and the ladies love it:

    This is what I bust out for special occasions; it's potent, complex, unique, and unmistakable:

    I am a perfume junkie... I have at least 10 bottles, maybe 15... and about 40 decants (samples going from 5 to 20 ml).
    I like pretty much confidential products like Serge Lutens, l'Artisan Parfumeur, Guerlain or Hermčs Exclusives... Creed, Penhaligon's... but also classic French parfumerie.

    My last crushes:
    Hypnotic poison DIOR EDP
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/D...fum-23098.html

    L'Instant GUERLAIN EDP
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/G...erlain-51.html
