Without perfume I feel like something’s missing. But I unfortunately forget about them very often 😉

Not at all, I would like to, but I suffer from migraines and when I wear perfumes I end up with an headache:(

I wear perfume every single day. I find it hard to commit to one one signature scent. That is why I prefer to buy the smallest size available, fortunately here in Europe most fragrances also come 30ml/1oz sprays; plus it’s also portable.
My favortites are displayed on a tray near my wardrobe, the others are securely packed away from daylight. Some are more than 15 years old and still smell “fresh” (Guerlains even get better with age).

I feel naked without wearing some sort of scent. I have several that I choose from depending on the season and my mood. I even bought an extra bottle of the one I was wearing when I met my SO and leave it at his place — when he has a tough day he’ll spray the bed pillow and pretend I’m there (we live a long way apart).

I wear perfume daily, the same scent. I found one that I love and decided I had to wear it all the time. This week I decided to try a new little fruity scent I bought. But I will definitely be back to my fave next wk. 🙂

I wear it daily too, all different one everyday, depends on my mood. So I have 40 of them!! Now I am lemming for Miss Dior Cheri Green 🙁

I do love to wear it, but I don’t feel naked without it. I love to change it up. I’ll wear what I call “seasonal” perfumes with the changing seasons – heavier scents in the winter, lighter in the summer, like a lot of people. I love to mix perfumes and essential oils to create my own scent, too.

I am not a fan of perfume – I don’t like being able to smell myself (bad OR good). I wish I liked perfume, though, I love it when people have kind of a ‘signature scent’ – perfume that smells good on them that they always wear. I do use body spray sometimes.

Nah – it’s one of those things that I do if I remember and have time, but that’s not very often. I rely on the scent of my body lotion 🙂

I have several fragrances and I like my perfumes in general, but it’s not a must for my daily routine. In fact I try -not- to wear it to work as I am in a small office and want to be respectful of those with allergies or scent sensitivities. I do like to use it when I am going out for a night out, though.

Fragrance is an absolute must! It’s an instant mood enhancer for me and I wear it all the time! I use different scents to invoke different moods.

Yuck, no. Most scents give me a migraine plus my job doesn’t allow the use of fragrances. In fact, it’s really become socially unacceptable here to wear perfume or fragrance in public places.

It’s viewed as offensive and inconsiderate of others’ sensitivity to scents. Most workplaces don’t allow it. The only time it’s really considered acceptable is when you’re going out to the bar or whatnot. Funny how regional views on perfumes are, lol.

Yes, your reply tickled me, that’s why I asked. In my country I don’t think it’s forbidden (I’m French). I love finding someone wearing perfume in a very discreet way (like you have to be very close to the person to smell it) and I HATE when I come across someone who has sprayed the whole bottle on her.

I used to take the train everyday to do to work and I remember an evening on the come back there was this woman who started to pamper herself in the train (hair, make up) even if she was already more made up that I will ever be. I found that very gross (pampering in public). At the end of it, she picked her bottle of perfume out of her bag and sprayed 4 or 5 pschitts on her (she was already wearing her perfume before adding more: I had felt it when she passed beside of me). And THAT was particularly grosser than everything she did before. In the type of train I was taking (TGV), you can’t open window, they’re sealed (it’s a bit like in a plane). So everyone beneficited from her perfume during that time. It was smelling very good, no problem but after a hard day work, heavy smells how delightful they are are disgusting.

I love perfume but I think that perfume should be worn in a discreet subtle way. 🙂

I understand the “why” but I need to ask where you live. In Paris perfume is a must, of course in a discrete, non aggressive to the others way…

Yes! I usually switch it up but I am on a mission to finish up products because my collection is getting out of hand, so I have been using the same one regularly to use it up.

Yes :)) I feel naked without a little scent. I LOVE LOVE from Moschino and Clinique HAPPY TO BE are my all time favorite! 🙂 They are my must haves for perfumes and boys love it. lol.

I do – everyday…even if it’s not a perfume per se, I always do wear a scented lotion and right now my favorite is Bath & Body Works – True Spa Moroccan Honey/Date Body Yoghurt…

as far as perfumes I’m a big fan of scents by Fresh, Marc Jacobs ‘Pear’ and juicy couture signature scent. But really, it all depends on my mood. Since Fall is right around the corner my scents become a little heavier and I’ll wear something like SJP’s Lovely or anything else that has a hint of musk…
