The very, very first was the Victoria’s Secret in Raspberry Glace. But perfume wise, it should be Bulgari BLV (I don’t even know what it’s called, but it’s the one in a blue bottle)

It’s a little embarrassing, but back in the day, Gap had a line of four or five fragrances, and my favorite was the “Dream” scent. I also loved “Heaven,” but that was my best friend’s signature scent, so I had to claim a different one.

We were in 5th grade.

I loved Dream! My friends loved Heaven but I always liked Dream better. I remember there was also Grass, which smelled, well, just like grass! I can’t remember the other too. But no need to be embarrassed!

They do! I just got a rollerball pack of 5 at a gap outlet at Christmas. I loved dream back on the day. I had the pieces of a dream set which was the individual notes you could mix and match.

Oh, God. Probably something from Victoria’s Secret. Hahaha. kate spade twirl or Chloé are my go-to fragrances right now.

Apparently some scientists in New Mexico recently found that the new “Bombshell” perfume from VS is almost as effective at warding off mosquitos as DEET. I find that absolutely hilarious.

I wore Eternity for many years. I still have a bottle of it but my tastes have changed quite a bit. I now wear Giulietta, by Tocca, most of the time (I find it very comforting) and Allure, by Chanel, on date nights.

YSL Opium. I wore the bejesus out of it in high school when I was out with friends during the evenings. I tried not to wear any fragrance during the day as I was hyper-aware of the girls who completely doused themselves in (bad) perfume and gave me a massive headache (my sister included…). Nowadays I still keep scents to a minimum during the daytime, and usually tend toward the more boutique scents from places like Jo Malone.

That was mine too! I recently spotted it on the shelf somewhere & wow have my tastes changed! I did not care for it at all.

Lol. I still love the scent (probably because it evokes so many childhood memories), but it only falls into my top 5 favorite perfumes; however, it’s not my number one.

My very first fragrance I ever owned, Love’s eau d Love, which I got at 14 or 15, was not to be my signature fragrance. No, that award belongs to the original Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld. My Mom bought it for me shortly after it had been released, and because she had gotten me the large bottle, it lasted for years! One of my absolute, all-time favorite fragrances.

Ooops – I don’t know how my earlier comment got posted here as I meant it to go at the end of the other comments but I wanted to say, Nancy, that I tried to wear Chloe years ago too. I loved the bottle and loved the smell and so I bought a large bottle of the spray, a bottle of body lotion and a bottle of bubble bath powder. I still have the bubble bath powder and it is still fine. It came with a “scoop” shaped like a calla lily (or whatever the flower was that was the symbol). Anyway, the other 2 products are long gone and the fragrance was not a good smell on me personally, though I loved how it smelled on others. But that milk bath powder….still blissful when I treat myself every now and then.

Avon Cotillion, from the time I was a preteen and through middle school. I absolutely loved it. I had those cute bottles shaped like girls in their cotillion ballgowns.

I believe in high school my signature perfume (or rather body spray) was between Calgon In the Rain or Body Fantasies Cucumber Melon.

My 1st real fragrance I can remember dubbing a “signature” perfume was during my 20’s / college years using
Lucky Number 6 by Liz Claiborne.

Omg me too! The flanker Alien Essence Absolue is even better but there is something about that jasmine heart that is really soothing in the original and most of the flankers (I have Alien Aqua Chic as well).

Ditto! Dior Addict was my first high end perfume – and remind my only high end perfume for a couple of years. And then i wen tout to buy a new perfume and got myself – Dior Addict 2!! Ha ha ha

The fragrance is a reminder of youth for me (I’m on the wrong side of 35 now) – my carefree days!

CKOne! I still have a bottle that I wear from time to time, when I’m feeling nostalgic. (OMG my age is showing but I don’t even care, it’s SUCH a good scent!)
