What kind of perfume do you wear?

Yesterday Toby and I stopped into Sephora to smell perfumes. Toby had a stuffy nose, so he wasn't much help, but I fell in love with Clean. You smell like you just stepped out of the shower, all fresh and sexy and kissable. What perfume are you wearing these days?

P.S. Six other quirky perfumes.

D&G Light Blue

Simple Dwellings said...

I have always loved Allure by Chanel. Other perfumes I wear always make me feel sick, because I can smell them constantly. But for Allure, I could spray it all day and never tire of it. It's also a clean, fresh smell, which I have always been drawn to. :)

Nome Alone said...

Rarely use perfume, but when I do, I'll spray some of the kind I used to wear 10 years ago for nostalgia: Ralph by Ralph Lauren. I'll try 'clean' next time!

melle-belle said...

I've been wearing Ultimate Clean for a couple years. It's the best thing EVER.

Leah Greenblum said...

Barely There by Bobbi Brown. It is a light, everyday fragrance.

PoetessWug said...

I only wear Estee' Lauder's 'White Linen' now...I'm all about clean too, but the clean smell! LOL I hadn't even heard about 'Clean' perfume!

Sunny Rising Leather said...

Fendi Palazzo - it's so clean and woodsy. I love it!

rebecca said...

I wear a bunch of different ones. I sometimes wear SJP Lovely or Covet. Sometimes Flowerbomb. Sometimes an Aveda fragrance (I think it's Water #5). It all depends on season, occasion, and mood.

melle-belle said...

Oops, I guess it's called "Clean -Ultimate" No wonder I love it: bergomot (like in earl grey tea), lavendar, jasmine, lemon. It's a hodge-podge of all of my favorite smells.

sherri lynn said...

Twirl by Kate Spade. Other favorites are Romance by Ralph Lauren and Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana. Wearing perfume makes me feel so feminine!

Anna (A Newfound Treasure) said...

I love Heeley's Iris de Nuit!

Keegan said...

If you enjoy un-perfumy perfumes like me, I highly recommend D.S. and Durga. (http://dsanddurga.com/) My husband wears Burning Barbershop and it's delicious. Their Coriander scent for women is also wonderful.

Avery Leigh Cox said...

Definitely Chanel Mademoiselle! My favorite scent in the whole world, Ive been wearing it since high school and have never gotten sick of it!
Keep up the great work Joanna!
Best,
Avery

Sasha said...

Alfred Sung. Old school sexy.

maggie. said...

I have crazy sensitivities to perfumes (itchy skin & severe headaches), so I'm pretty much au naturale. I use apricot scented tom's deodorant though, so I guess that counts :)

French Cannes Cannes said...

I've always wanted a signature scent and I finally found it last year- Trésor, by Lancôme. Not too strong, so I can wear it without getting a headache. In finally finished my first bottle of perfume - EVER. (all the others I would buy, use for a week, and then give to a friend because they were too strong!).

Jessica said...

I was devastated when Stila discontinued their fragrance Creme Bouquet. I used to get SO many compliments. So I went online and researched what "notes" they used for it and then searched perfumes with the similar make up. That's how I found Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. I love it and still get compliments. Just enough so people get a whiff when you hug :)

Behind the Lashes said...

I change it with the seasons. Right now I love Gucci Guilty.

Cheryl said...

I wear Pink Sugar or Body by Victoria from Victoria's Secret.

My all time favorite is Flower Bomb though from Nordstrom. It's a little spendy though.
:)

M said...

I mostly wear Marc Jacobs Blush. I don't know if it's in stores anymore. Sometimes Burberry Brit at night. My third - coincidentally - is Clean de Provence. I am not crazy about it. I should check out the plain old Clean.

Cara said...

Ralph Lauren Rocks and Burberry Brit Red. Burberry Brit is my special holiday perfume, I love it.

Dancing Branflake said...

I wear Nina Ricci's Premier Jour. I've worn it since I was 18 so for the last ten years that's been my scent. My husband loves it- he thinks I just smell that way naturally because I've worn it since we've met.

Teresa said...

I love Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit from Sephora. I tend to prefer sweet smells. This one smells like vanilla with a touch of citrus and it is all natural. Love it!!!

Tee said...

I have two that I rotate:
Hermes eau Jardin sur la Nil in the summer, spring and when I'm tired; Chanel Eau Premiere in the fall, winter and on dates. It's by far my favorite version of No. 5.

Christina Marie said...

Anything with vanilla or gardenia in it! Fresh and sweet!

xo,
Christina

clinique Happy, I love love it, subtle but fresh and flirty

Jackie {York Avenue} said...

I still wear Victorias Secret Heavenly that I've worn since high school! A few months ago I went on a perfume finding mission but it was so hard to find one that I loved...so I went back to my old standard!

Kate said...

I wear Clean everyday, I love it! My other favorites are Bliss.

Beautiful by Este Lauder

erica said...

I've been wearing Guerlain's Champs Elysee since 1996. My dearest friend introduced it to me by mailing me a tear-out sample from a magazine. He committed suicide in 2000, and I've continued to wear it ever since in honor of him. Plus, it really is a wonderful perfume and suits me perfectly!

Elisabeth said...

i still wear a variety of victoria secret but the perfume i'm going to splurge on soon is DAISY by marc jacobs

michaela p said...

I've been uber sensitive to smells during my pregnancy, and the only perfume I've wanted to wear is L'Occitane's Rose 4 Reines Eau de Toilette. It's a simple, natural, light, pure rose scent - I love it!

SmartBear said...

I have to switch it up based on the season. Right now for fall I am wearing Kiehl's musk and for winter I wear Walking in Air by CB I Hate Perfume (smells like snow :))
Best,
Tina

Jillian said...

I recently discovered Burberry 'Weekend' and it's love.

Jennifer said...

I'm in love with Flora by Gucci. So light and fresh, sweet but not too fruity...

Kendall Marie said...

daisy by marc jacobs and twirl by kate spade

StephV said...

Flowerbomb...but I wore Burberry Brit for years before that!

beth said...

i rotate perfumes--my top three are stella by stella mccartney (nighttime), burberry weekend (summer), and pure by dkny (daytime, since it's light and doesn't bother my coworkers).

kacky said...

Allure by Chanel. For as long as I can remember. Love it.

Anita said...

I was just in Sephora doing the same thing this last weekend! I'm picking out a new scent for myself for Christmas. Currently deciding between "boyfriend" by Kate Walsh and "Chloe." It's a hard decision!

Maud said...

Chanel #5... I love how classic it is!

Laurel said...

Love Clean! It's my travel perfume (as it's the only perfume I have that's in a bottle less than 3 oz). From October-April I wear Burberry Brit (since it's on the heavy side) and April-October I wear Elizabeth Arden's Sunflowers.

miss hill said...

I ADORE this post. I love knowing these facts about people- I love the responses. I too like clean, and love Demeter Laundromat- can you get cleaner? it smells like you've just laundered your clothes and your you! I am sure you've read, and probably blogged about the book Perfumes. So hilarious. When a perfume I loved was described as eau de rubber-gloves, i swiftly changed my mind!! http://www.perfumestheguide.com/Perfumes_The_A-Z_Guide_-_Luca_Turin_and_Tania_Sanchez/Where_to_Buy.html I WANT TO SMELL ALL OF YOU!

Gabrielle said...

Tomato by Demeter. Smells fresh and green and sweet, like a tomato plant. They also have some other interesting ones, like Dirt and Wet Garden (haven't tried those yet!)

Ms. Bunny said...

I can't wear perfume on week days because I work with museum artifacts. No scents allowed and lotion-free hands. Because of this, I have owned a bottle of perfume in years.

Sarah said...

I wear "in the library" by CB I Hate Perfume. http://www.cbihateperfume.com/in-the-library.html
I love it so much - for the first time I finished a bottle of scent! It smells light and leathery and sweet at the same time, but is not overpowering at all.

Amelia @ House Pretty said...

Sensi by Armani - love it!

CLP said...

I recently fell in love with MCMC perfumes which are made in NYC. I love Maine and Garden. They are subtle which is nice.
I recently got into OLO Fragrances based in Portland, OR.
I just got Leisure Nomad and I love it.

Kendra said...

Serge Lutins Un Bois Vanille, Bond's Chinatown, and Lolita Lempicka!

iida said...

I adore Clean perfumes, but unfortunately they really don't go well with my skin, I smell like strong soap. I wear Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel and Daisy by Marc Jacobs, and I have a fatal weakness for everything by Kenzo.

Sage Crown Parker said...

clean sounds nice! i need a sent, they always smell so perfumey to me...

nichole (eat & be pretty) said...

Right now I wear Marc Jacobs Daisy but I've recently fallen in love with both Calvin Klein Euphoria and Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle

courtney said...

I wear either Hunter or Love by MCMC Fragrances. Such amazing scents, and they are all handmade in Brooklyn.

Kristina said...

I also love the fresh scent of Clean and have been longing to get my hands on a bottle. I currently wear Channel's Chance Eau Tendre. It's so feminine and sophisticated.

danielle19 said...

I'm another Daisy by Marc Jacobs girl. I love having a consistent signature scent, but I also love Dior Addict Shine in the winter.

Wendy said...

I wear Elle from Yves Saint Laurent... heavenly.

Mal said...

My fave is the traditional/first Marc Jacobs scent. I also love some of his body splashes, especially the pomegranate, my lighter summer fragrance is generally Fresh Lemon Sugar

http://chicgeekery.blogspot.com/

love+cupcakes said...

Fresh out of the shower scents are my favorite but lately I've been using Lola by Mark Jacob which is nice but I always wonder if it's a bit too strong for close quarters like work...no complaints yet, but I can't help but wonder.

Sabrina said...

Spring Fever from Origins.

Briana said...

French Lilac by Pacifica. Reminds me of springtime!

Ashley said...

I love love love Clean! I've been wearing Lola, my backup, a lot lately. My main perfume is Pink Sugar, but I'm out right now.

Megan said...

Burberry Brit in the fall/winter, Trish McEvoy #9 Sexy in the spring/summer. Two of the only ones I've found that don't give me a headache!

Karly said...

I've been wearing Burberry The Beat for years, and I adore it. It's smoky and sexy, but not overpowering. It's sophisticated and deep, with distinct wood tones and floral topnotes, and leaves a lingering romantic scent.

madeline said...

I use "Pink" by Lili Bermuda. I got it when my mom and I went to Bermuda after I graduated high school. It's lasted through all four years of college and now I need to go back to Bermuda!

Julie Kaye Davies said...

Annick Goutal's Eau de Camille

Snow White said...

Gucci's Flora. And Givenchy's Organza. I have a lot of perfumes but I wear those two most frequently. I also love the Body Shop's vanilla line... I wear the eau de toilette sometimes.

Shelby Clark said...

Marc Jacobs Daisy or Poppy by Coach. I love floral, feminine, flirty scents! :)

Lyss said...

I've been hooked on Armani's Aqua di Gioa for the past few months. Sometimes I fear that I do not have a a mature nose for perfume...

HiLLjO said...

I don't wear parfum; I prefer naturalness and the alcohol/ingredients freak me out in perfume.

Susie said...

Chance by Chanel and Miss Cherie by Dior. Got them in the airport on my way back from Europe. Love em! Dior one's a little bit strong though~

Ginny Cook said...

I love Jo Malone perfumes (Fig and Cassis, Pomegranate Noir, Lime Basil and Mandarin...and on and on). I also find the Roger & Gallet perfume to be light and sexy (Gingembre is the best!). But I'd love to splurge on a bottle of L'Artisan perfume in the Vetiver or Fig scent!
Ginny

Alyssa said...

I actually just bought Clean 2 weeks ago and I love it!

Lauren Kent said...

i switch it up regularly. right now, i have four i'm wear.
covert - SJP
j'adore - dior
moonsparkle - escala
english velvet - jack wills

Pearl said...

My boyfriend recently surprised me for my birthday and arranged for a tour of a high-end perfume store in order to test a bunch of scents that were unique and figure out what I liked best (best gift ever).

My fav brands were Heeley (Sel Marin smells like your skin is kissed with sea salt after the beach. Cuir Pleine Fleur is amazing mens cologne that smells like your favorite leather chair), Comme des Garcons (#2, 888 - they are known for avant garde scents like adding smoke to a perfum), Diptyque, and L'Artisan Parfumeur. Highly recommend testing these out!

brooklynash said...

Chanel #5 over Kiehl's Original Musk lotion.

Allison M. said...

Jo Malone's Nectarine Blossom and Honey.

Mrs. Parker said...

Fracas by Robert Piguet. My all time favourite.

Stella said...

chanel - chance. was a gift from a friend when I was in Paris visiting her. I love it!

Marta W said...

Burberry Brit or Calvin Klein - Euphoria. Few years ago Deep Red by Hugo Boss was my favorite.

Simone Carousel Girl said...

I wear perfumes from LUSH either the vanilla one or a limited edition one I got called american cream, They are so unusual and lovely

Talia said...

Cashmere - DKNY. I love it and get many compliments.

jdknitter said...

I love fruity scents especially lemon. Sugar Lemon by Fresh, and Be Delicious (the original green apple) by DKNY are my fav.

Anonymous said...

pacifica solid perfume! natural stuff without chemicals :)

Julia said...

my favorite would have to be the chloe perfume! The new love, chloe smells amazing too!
floral girly scents are my favorite!

nicole said...

I wear Ore by Zents. It's sexy, alluring and a bit masculine. It's a long-time favorite of mine. Here's a link to it:

http://www.zents.com/edt_ore.shtml

P.S. Men have walked up to me and asked "What perfume are you wearing? I'm going to buy that for my wife!" - this has happened on more than one occasion, ha!

Paige said...

Chanel Chance

Maggie said...

I love Clean! I wear Clean Skin, and I sniff myself all day!

Anonymous said...

Essential oil mix from etsy that smells like Aveda's Shampure scent. Very clean smelling also...always get complimented when I wear it too!

Ida F said...

Gaultier2

Heba said...

right now I'm in love with these two perfumes believe by Britney Spears and Carolina by Carolina Herrera

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

I wear a French perfume that is basically straight-up vanilla. Grown manly men even love it. People tell me I smell delicious all the time.

Anna said...

Bond No. 9's Andy Warhol Union Square. Love it. The beautiful bottle cracked in my suitcase one trip, but I managed to salvage almost all of the perfume. It now sits pretty in a glass bottle on my bathroom counter although it doesn't compare to that bright floral one.

Bethany said...

I've been wearing Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely for years and I still love it. They say that when choosing a fragrance you should find one you love and stick with it, especially if you're a parent because it will help your children remember you. Our sense of smell is the strongest tie we have to our memory - whenever you children smell your fragrance it will give them strong recollections of you, even when you're gone from them.

Rojo. Bleu. Púrpura & Vert said...

Armani Code I love it (love it!).
Emporio Diamonds by Armani, my husband loves it.
Acqua Dio Gio, Armani, my first perfume, still wear it from time to time.

But for very special occasions: Amarige from Givenchy.

Mary said...

Spring Flower, Love in White, and Sublime Vanille all by Creed. I also love Penhaligon Bluebell.

For ORGANIC scents I love this brand, Honoré des Prés... it's French! xx

Meredith said...

Creed Spring Flowers is SUCH a lovely fragrance. It was created for Audrey Hepburn. Their perfume is expensive as heck so I don't wear it that often, but the splurge was well worth it. It's made with really high end ingredients so it doesn't ever have an alcohol-y smell.

I also love Stella by Stella McCartney. It's floral but sexy--definitely get asked "what perfume is that??" on a regular basis by guys :)

rianz said...

There are several perfumes that I love and used to wear regularly, but when I started having babies I didn't want them snuggling into me and absorbing all those toxic chemicals. (Many of the same chemicals that are found in cigarette smoke.... what's the difference for your kids???). Plus I liked the idea of my children knowing "MY" scent, not a synthetic version of something else. My youngest is 16 months so maybe when she finishes breast feeding I'll consider perfume again. But I love essential oils for scent right now. And to be honest I think I'll be very careful before I start "spraying" myself again! xx

Alysia Victoria said...

tiffany's pure <3 <3 <3 nothing compares! burberry london (so sweet and comforting), j'adore dior, gucci envy me

Angry Asian said...

it's always been Estee Lauder's Pleasures or Gap Dream.

tho really, i don't wear perfume often.

L. said...

Vera Wang's regular perfume is simple and clean.

ohnomyboots said...

I want to know where Pearl's boyfriend took her!!!

The only perfume I've ever been able to carry off (most overpower me) is Bulgari Crystalline. I love that my daughter associates it with me- that I'm giving her a mommy-smell memory for her childhood memory bank.

mor said...

I love love love love 212!

The Jones said...

Used to LOVE Kenneth Cole "Black" but it got discontinued recently, alas. Now I've been wearing Burberry...but honestly, I also love a good, warm, lush, spicy vanilla (Bath and Body Works "Vanilla Noir" 'cause I'm cheap!).

I wear Coach poppy. I also have had (and is probably my favorite) Marc Jacobs Daisy.

leah vee of boy howdy daily said...

elie saab is my newest perfume. it's light, fresh but stays on all day. it's lovely!

Gandhali said...

either armani code (looove it), or YSL baby doll!

Jules said...

Stella by Stella McCartney in the spring and summer. Burberry Brit in the fall and winter.

Charmaine said...

I like DKNY Be Delicious because it make me smell like apples. I hate perfume that smells overly flowery.
My BF also bought me Jean Paul Gautier Classique X & it smells good too.

I wear by Taverns & the Hague by Caroline Sabas Anthropologie. I adore that citrusy scent. I dropped a bottle once just days after buying it & I actually cried.

Cheers,
Find That Warm Fuzzy Feeling

Rachel said...

I wear D & G La Lune to work. It's light and fresh. If I want to switch it up for evenings, I'll wear Tokyo Milk Song in D Minor or Marc Jacobs.

Kelsea said...

Annick Goutal Petit Cherie is my favorite!

Anonymous said...

I love Chanel No.5 and how every time I smell it, it reminds me of the Christmas my mom and I both gave each other a bottle as a Christmas gift. She is gone now, but the memory always makes me smile.

Lately I've been wearing Taylor Swift's new fragrance
Wonderstruck.

Mornings with Milo said...

Le Labo! Mike and I both love their fragrances and rotate depending on the time of year. They have the loveliest candles and scents! Milo wears Musti by Mustela for babies ;)

Nagehan said...

Addict by Dior! Sexy, mysterious, and confident!

Mamma & Pappa said...

During the fall and winter time, I like wear warmer scents, I love love love Alien, and Lust by Fresh. Scent has such power. One thing I'll always remember about my mother is her love of perfume, her favorites were Chanel, Donna Karen Cashmere and Tresor. I sometimes used to secretly spritz the tiniest amount and pretend I was a classy dame.

That's Not My Age said...

I like a light fragrance, nothing too heavy. Comme des Garcons Odeur 53 is a long-term favourite.

Histoires de Parfum: 1969

Erica E said...

depending on my mood. but these are my all time favorites...
Jean Nate, cashmere mist by DKNY, Laura Mercier either Eau de Lune or Heure Magique and of course the classic Channel #5

Shannon said...

if you like clean (as do i!), you'll love Issey Miyake's purfume.

i can't wear it now because i'm so sensitive to smells during pregnancy. but i'm missing it.

Susan said...

I usually wear Obsession but think I'm ready for something new and different for a while. Clean sounds intriguing.

If you have time, check out my friend's new blog. She's in NYC too.

Trina said...

Most perfumes tend to give me a headache so I much prefer men's cologne. I've been interested in CB I Hate Perfume ever since you posted it awhile ago, but I haven't been able to actually sniff any before buying.

kaela d. said...

Beyond Paradise by Estee Lauder in this beautiful little rainbowish purple glass bottle. I'm in my early 20's and have been wearing it for about 10 years..pretty sure it's my signature scent. I don't think I've gone a day without it...I feel naked. And honestly, at this point I don't even think I can smell it that much because I'm so used to it.

The other day my friend Scott said, "Some lady came into my job and smelled exactly like you...I could've sworn you were in the store." I thought it was quite a compliment. :)

Alison said...

I love flowerbomb, but there's this great pink one from versace that i got spritzed with once and have liked ever since.

Madeline said...

I have been wearing Kiehls musk for the past 7 years. I have had others but nothing is quite like it. I love it and get complimented on it all the time. Perfect for day or night, I like to think of it as my (and probably a million other smart people out theres...) signature scent.

R. said...

I rock Be Delicious by DKNY; sometimes I wear Chance eau Fraiche by Chanel, but Be Delicious is my fave. One time a friend hugged me and said, "You smell delicious! What are you wearing?" They thought I was joking when I said, "Be Delicious..."

haley said...

Nina Ricci! It's an eclectic and beautiful scent.... :) Apple bottle!

confessionsofacatholic said...

I've been wearing Chance by Chanel for roughly a trillion years. men love it. TRUST.

Becca (Petal Floral Design) said...

can't live without marc jacobs classic perfume. simply lovely. ps. love those ranunculus

Bethany said...

Daisy by Marc Jacobs! Simple and a little sweet.

rachel om said...

Aerie's signature scent!

roberta said...

for everyday I love, really love CK one, for nights out with boyfriend Diamonds by Armani and for special special nights with boyfriend agent provocateur perfume..this is really sexy

emily o. said...

euphoria by calvin klein. i've worn it for at least 5 years...and i still get compliments!

Paula said...

Clean has been my daily perfume for over a year. Love it!

house of violetta said...

autumn\winter: hermes Un jardin après la mousson and sometimes Prada Infusion D'iris

spring\summer:Hermes Un jardin sur le Nil
also keep rose water in spray bottle in the fridge to cool but carry it around in my purse to spritz through out the hot summer Milano days.

Colleen McCorrister said...

I wear clean...I figured out that I smells like the original Pantene Pro-V. This shampoo is horrible for my hair but it smells wonderful!

Michelle said...

I love Clean Fresh Laundry. It feels fresh and not too overpowering.

Ana said...

Have you ever been to Bond No. 9 on Bond St.? They have the most beautiful perfumes! I also love that they're kind of special and that you can only find them in a few stores. I love West Side the most, but all of them are lovely. The bottles are kind of cheesy, but the scents...the scents are incredible : )

Sara said...

perfume is one of my favorite things. I would love to have a signature scent, but I haven't settled on any one scent yet. Right now I'm using Annouck Goutal Ambre Fetiche and Grove New York Luxe based on my mood. But I think the thing I get the most compliments on is my Lush Dirty Body Spray!

AnAdelaideGirl said...

Chanel No. 19.
For today, yesterday and forever.........

It is clean, slightly green, fresh and powdery with a bit of a 50's vibe.
I get many compliments (from men and women), my husband loves it, as do my children (if I ever have anything else on they say I don't smell "right")
...totally agree with Bethany's comments about children remembering your fragrance. My youngest son took a scarf of mine to hospital as it smelt like me (he was only 6 at the time) as it was a great comfort to him.
...but most of all I love it myself - it just makes me happy!

Artaud said...

I've been wearing Coco Chanel since the mid 80s, when it first came out and I was a teenager. My Mom went to a conference with my Dad and all the wives were given swag, which included a tiny bottle of it. I loved it so much I kept sneaking dabs, until the bottle was gone. I got a full size one for Christmas that year and I've worn it ever since. I've flirted with other fragrances (Opium is wonderful and sexy, especially mixed with sandlewood oil), but I never feel quite like myself without my Coco. My husband and I were in London recently and we went into a Penhaligon's shop to "play." He loved the way Artemisia smelled on me, and we bought some (including a beautiful silver plate compact with a solid version in it), and I do like it a lot, particularly because it reminds me of our time in the UK, but I still prefer Coco. I'm terrified that Chanel is going to stop making it!

Soap.....it probably smells sort of like Clean, but one less step in the morning. ;)

Kate @ Savour Fare said...

I've gone through phases -- in college and law school and through my early 20's I wore Anais Anais by Cacharel (my husband still says that's the smell that reminds him of me. To me, it's the smell of Paris from when I was a child), then I switched about 5 years ago to Hermes Un Jardin Sur Le Nil (smells like grapefruit and rain) and lately I've been wearing Jo Malone's Orange Blossom.

Honey & The Moon by TokyoMilk

Emily L. Eibel said...

I wear Kept by MCMC– I LOVE how it's a floral but it's roughed up with leather... I really want MCMC's Love too– it totally takes me to fields of sage in the west! Before MCMC I'd wear Fresh perfumes, but they're too sweet smelling for me now!

Annie said...

I wear Clean too! I also really love Oh Lola! by Marc Jacobs.

kate said...

Annick Goutal's Petit Cherie. No one knows or recognises it, which I love.

Amanda said...

My favorite is Black Orchid Voile de Fleur by Tom Ford. It's unique and not a lot of people wear it, but it's pretty heady, so I usually only wear it when it's cold outside!

leathergal said...

I'm super picky and can't stand overwhelming scents. I too go for clean or light floral scents. I adore Pacifica's French Lilac-I bought the roller-ball version last Christmas and still have some left! Their Tahitian Gardenia and Tunisian Jasmine are awesome too:) at $12, they can't be beat!

jessica quadra PHOTOGRAPHY said...

i've been wearing a gwen stefani harajuku lovers perfume in "baby" which i got at costco for like 20 bucks!
the bit about toby not being much help made me laugh out loud!

Tang said...

Perfume always gives me headaches, but the one that I can always wear and love is Ralph by Ralph Lauren.

Kaylin H. said...

Burberry The Beat or Britney Spears' Believe. I love the Burberry one because it reminds my boyfriend of an amazing vacation we took together! The Britney Spears one smells great, and I don't feel bad wearing it a lot because it's not super expensive. :)

Jovan white musk

Catie said...

I'm wearing Womanity by Thierry Mugler. So yummy! It smells like woods, citrus, caviar and fig.

Emily @ The Poignant Pelican said...

Pomegranate Noir by Jo Malone. It's amazing! It has sweet fruity notes of raspberry, plum, pink pepper and pomegranate with patchouli, frankincense and spicy woods. I love it!

Carrie said...

Fall/winter perfume: Possibilities by Ann Taylor. Spring: Amazing Grace. Summer: Stella by Stella McCartney. Love each of them! :)

Anonymous said...

eau dynamisante by clarins and eau d'hadrien by Annick Goutal both fresh and lovely, theres also an evening version les nuits d'hadrien perfect f you want something with a little more resonance.

Chelsea said...

I started wearing Clean and Clean Sweet Layer a few years ago, and then a couple of my friends liked it and bought it too...and it seemed to smell better on them. You know how certain perfumes respond better with certain people's body chemistry? It made me a bit mad, so I switched.

Now my day perfume is Hesperides by Fresh, which is citrusy.

I need a good night time perfume for when I want to take it up a notch, but I don't like to be toooo perfumy, so I'm happy for all these suggestions! :)

Corrin said...

Just discovered bvlgari jasmin noir l'essence, and have worn it every day since. I love it!

Ling said...

I just use the Sheer Freesia body mist from Bath & Body Works. It's light & smells pretty =) I also have the lotion in that scent, so oftentimes I don't even need the body mist after lotioning up with it.

DeeDee said...

I am in love with Tokyo Milk's "Dead Sexy".
For something sweeter, I like their "Kabuki"
YUM

Clara said...

I've been really into Kate Spade Twirl lately. It's so playful! But I used to be obsessed with Burberry brit. I love clean scents, so that one you found sounds delicious!

I'v been wearing Dolce & Gabbana since I was about 16. Now people tell me that they think of me whenever they smell it :)

Euphoria by Calvin Klein. You only need a little of it to smell sexy & by the end of the day, it's so subtle and lovely.

Does anyone else feel like they're wearing the wrong perfume when no one else has listed it? :P

I love Obsession Night (Calvin Klein), but I'd love to get my hands on Flowerbomb! I don't usually wear perfume, though, so I can't justify getting it :(

My perfume stash is embarrassingly large... I love everything from CB I Hate Perfume, and am a big fan of L'Artisan's perfumes, too -- especially their "tomboy-ish" ones like Mechant Loup and Dzing!

I used to wear L'Occitane's Vanilla Bourbon exclusively but then they changed the formula and it's never been the same. I love caramel and vanilla notes, so I also like Angel by Thierry Mugler and Creme Bouquet by Stila (ordered it off of Ebay, thank God I found it again!). Marc Jacobs is also really nice... floral and a bit coconutty.

I wear japanese cherry blossom, mariah carey M and Harajuku lovers and very wang princess.

missy pig said...

yes! I love CLEAN too! I bought the mini set and its good smelling like laundry haha.

I received a DKNY of floral + apple duo from a friend and I like it as well

Clean sounds so nice... I'd like to try it! I wore Viva la Juicy on my honeymoon and now every time I wear it, it makes my hubby and me feel extra romantic. :)

I just got Gorgeous by Victoria's Secret and its pretty light, vanilla-ish. I also love Rosewood from Banana Republic.

I carry flowerbomb by victor & rolf and wear it as my everyday scent, but wear French Kiss by Tokyomilk from Anthropologie going out... reminds me of the first Christmas with my boyfriend, when he got me the scent.

Gosh, I can't remember the last time I wore perfume! Maybe I should, there is something sexy about smelling good.... Always loved Abercrombie 8.

Joanna or anyone that can help, could you email me where you got your blackout shade for Toby's room? I am in need of one and can't find. Thank you! amynicole.bracken@gmail.com

YSL's Baby Doll has been a favorite of mine for years. It smells just like sweet grapefruit.

I also love Thunderstorm by Demeter and usually get compliments from guys if I wear any kind of tangerine-based scent.

So, I'm a little bit perfume obsessed, but I'm really drawn to weird, original scents. I really hate generic ones that smell too chemically to me now. I think it's sort of like becoming a wine snob, once you taste really amazing wine you can't easily go back to bad merlot...or whatever. Ok, that might make me sound pretentious, but I swear I'm not! I just really love perfume :)

So, my main go-to is layering Comme de Garcons' Avignon (which is a strong incense that smells exactly like a European Catholic church during mass) with L'Artisan Parfumeur's Vanilia, which is a slightly ashy sweet vanilla. It's a grown-up vanilla that isn't too formal, but when it's paired with incense, it's this great strong, sexy sweet, smoky combination. I adore it.

Other perfumes that will always be on my all time favourite list (but can not afford...sad!) are Chanel's Coromandel (exclusive line) - it's also kinda hippie but sophisticated. Slightly patchouli, which I have always loved growing up with hippie parents, but then really chic vanilla and spice... it smells like the most graceful lady you can imagine - but you know she had a little bit of a wild youth :P

Then, my other love is Liasons Dangereuses by By Killian. It is the most sensual, beautiful, floral, berries amazing perfume ever. So so beautiful. It smells like a picnic in a forest dripping with flowers and fruit... Oh man.

There are more (obviously, haha), but those are my all time favourites to date :) I would encourage you to check out Katie Puckrick on YouTube - great perfume videos, as well as the Perfume: A to Z Guide - super great perfume reviews. Ok, stopping rambling now!!!

my husband bought me champs elysee, a perfume i never would have even tried out since its so...womanly. he told me he smelled it in a coffee shop, and tracked down the girl who was wearing it to ask what it was. he said "excuse me, what perfume are you wearing? i think my wife would love it." i asked if she thought he was a creep coming on to her, but apparently she thought it was sweet!

Tocca Cleopatra. So yummy and perfect.

You have to try anything by Strange Invisible Perfumes. They make hydro-distilled botanical perfumes. Very organic and eco friendly. Each fragrance smells AMAZING!

Happy Bodegian said...

Kieihls Musk or l'occitane the vert.
So fresh and clean!

Shannon said...

It's funny to read this, because just bought 2 bottles of CLEAN yesterday. I bought the pink and the light green. Summer Escape and Fresh Outdoors, I think they are called. Both smell great!

Basil by Marc Jacobs. it keeps me in the perfect mood all day long.

Lindsay said...

Got a sample of a bvlgari jasmin I absolutely love and hopefully will get it for Christmas. I usually don't wear anything, but I like soapy clean scents, coconut, vanilla...once in France, this girl smelled amazing so I asked her what her perfume was and she just said vanilla. It was the most perfect vanilla.

Deb Harvey said...

I love Chanel No. 5 and Victoria Secret's Love Spell. I've been wearing Chanel Chance, however, for the past year and a half. It lasts forever!

Stephanie D said...

I wear a french perfume, Yves Rocher "summer water". I know summer is over, but I love it. I'm also partial to Gap's "Dream". :)
