I gave up on perfumes alone. I use some good body creams/lotions, either alone or layer them after using a shower gel in that fragrance. They moisturize my skin as well and the fragrance is usually more subtle and can be spread wherever you want.

I like several; Victoria's Secret's Amber Romance, Several Grace ones from Philosophy (LOVE Summer Grace! And they have some that are more moisturizing in both shower gel and cream for winter skin), Organza's Indecence, Tresor, Avon's Skin So Soft (Pink - Sensuous?) and a cheapie I found at Perfumania, Jerome Privee Moments. Also probably others that I get as samples or gifts. I tend to go for the mild, flowery, or musk-type ones.

I also learned at Perfumania that they have a body cream/lotion that you can mix your own perfume or other liquid fragrance into and it takes on whatever fragrance you use. I could use up my random small amounts of perfume that I have amassed and hate to throw away because some were rather expensive. That would also make them last longer and it is supposed to be a good moisturizer.

My go-to scent is Philosophy Amazing Grace. I don't like the cologne, but the body lotion scent lasts all day and smells wonderful. I also like Living Grace and Unconditional Love, both from Philosophy and Vanilla Dee-lite and Creme Anglaise, both from Lush.

As far as a regular cologne, I love Burberry Brit and Lust, 25:43 and Vanilliary, all from Lush.

Light Blue - Dolce & Gabbana

Clinique Elixir - my absolute favorite in the world.

Also, JLo's - JLo is really nice, I have that as a back up if I run out of my other two

25:43 from LUSH too :) Also Orange Blossom on occasion.

I don't like "heavy" perfumes, these are light and don't last too long, so it doesn't overpower me.

For lotion, I like almond scents and wear Crabtree and Evelyn's Almond Oil. I wait for it to go on sale and stock up.

This time of year I get out my DKNY "Be Delicious". It has an apple smell, which is ..uh... cooler than it sounds.

It's not sexy for going out but I love it for everyday use.

It comes in perfume and a body spray as well as lotions.

Gianfranco Ferre when I can find the original. It's hard to find sometimes and I need to smell it first because I've found it in a few places and the color was off and it stank. It was either sitting too long or mixed with something. But that was always from those places that pop up in the mall around the holidays and disappear a month later.
I got it first when I was in Italy when I was 13. So whenever I know someone going to Europe I give them money to look for me.

I also love "Love" by Ralph Lauren but it reminds me of a time I'd rather not be reminded of.
And Clinique "Happy" is wonderful.

Chanel No.5. has always been my moms perfume since I was a little girl and nothing makes me think of her more than that smell

Shalimar, Guerlain.

I have an aunt who wore it. I remember hugging her and asking what she wore; it always smelled so nice on her.

I adopted as my favorite. While it does not smell as nice on me, I still love it and it's been a fav since I was probably 15.

Fall and winter it's Bulgari's Jasmin Noir. Not "Mon Jasmin Noir" which confusingly is a totally different scent. It is the only perfume I've ever worn that attracts random women in stores to follow me and then finally stop me and ask what perfume I'm wearing. It's a chick magnet.

I get a ridiculous amount of comments/compliments on my "Dream" from the Gap, bought at the outlets for less than $20 a bottle.

I wore that in college and had a purse size aerosol spray bottle discharge in my swim team duffel bag. The scent never, ever came out and the smell of "Dream" mixed with chlorine is forever scarred into my scent memory! Probably for the rest of the team as well, since my bag would also scent the team bus, especially in the heat. But I adored that scent up until the spillage. I didn't know they still made it.

I also have a big bottle of Gucci Envy Me.

Pretty much Estee Lauder Sensuous (and sometimes Sensuous Nude). I wanted a new scent for my NB, and I love how that smells on me. I don't have seasonal fragrances either; I love the one scent, and that's what I wear when I wear perfume.

I have more than a few which is why I stick to rollerballs or samples, mostly. I get sick of them.

Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey

Dolce and Gabbaba Signature

Tom Ford Black Orchid

Joy de Jean Patou (sparingly)

Vivara by Emilio Pucci. (Sephora has a rollerball and it's yummy but don't like his other fragrances)

I find perfume smells so different on each person. I can't stand one perfume but when my friend wears it it's delicious.

I'm getting some GREAT ideas to try next time I go perfume shopping.

My fave for about that last 4-5 years has been Issey Miyake's L'eau D'isse - LOVE IT. It's about $90 per bottle at Macy's, but it lasts quite a while.

I'm checking out several of the suggestions soon though!

Pink Sugar, by Aquolina. I've been told it smells like caramel. Whatever it smells like, it's yummy.

Also DKNY's Be Delicious.

I recently fell in love with Flowerbomb (Victor & Rolf), but my H doesn't like it.

I shall provide images ... Cause I am bored ... and I really wanna go check out fragrance.net ... WooHoo !!!

I don't know about seasonal scents, I wear whatever scent I want whenever, usually this largely depends on my $$$ ...

In no particular order ... Did I say I was bored ??? And I see TR was trying to get this flighted somewhere ... me being bored maybe we can go spray over book club, they don't move a lot and can smell musty ......

Sand De Sable ... By I have no idea, I smelled it at Wal-Mart when I was in high school and have been wearing it on/off sense ...

Also another Wal-Mart find from high school. I have sense broadened this to include varying different scents of vanilla perfumes ... I like a lot of them.

I just found this one about a week ago. You guessed it, at Wal-Mart, it is currently my lotion and body spray. I love it !!!

I love this one !!!! I found it at Ross last Christmas. Sadly this is one of those I cannot afford at leisure, but if I could I would. Did I say I love it ??? Cause I do.

Peanut's ??? Blankie ??? Pillow ??? FLIGHT ATTENDANT !?!?!

"Weekend perfume by Burberry perfectly balances a feminine, contemporary appeal with a refreshing, citrusy tone that's just right for daytime excursions. First introduced by Burberry in 1997, this casual fragrance for women has a delicate construction that combines sandalwood, vanilla, soft peach, marigold, apricot and musk into a rich balance that's evocative but never overwhelming. This energetic fragrance is perfect for the weekend, and it's a great selection for any day of the week ..."

Not my words but a description & review of sorts for my fave scent Burberry Weekend ......

So it's 50 degrees here this am, so the euphoria is on, and God I love the smell of this stuff. It's so yummy.

Also I wanted to add for those of the folks that react to commercial perfumes you can make your own scents. I do this with the lotion bars I make. Go to any local Natural foods store, or place that sells stuff for making soaps/candles/lotions, most sell essential oils.

For my womans hand scent I use a combination Lavendar, rosemary, and Rose Geranium for it. It is light, clean and refreshing.

For my Mans hand scent I use Cedarwood (tiny amount) Orange, and just a hint of lavendar. It's clean and refreshing, and not flowery.

I have a friend who likes them with no scent, and I have special requests as well. If they buy the essential oils for the scent they want I make it.
