Most of my stuff (body cream, body wash, powder, body spray etc) comes from an etsy store and it all has the same scent– it’s called Rose Jelly. Smells absolutely divine!

There are really so many fragances that I love, right now I’m using Miss Dior Eau de Printemps so much (it’s summer here in Canada), during the winter I love so much Angel by Thierry Mugler La Vie Est Belle by Lancome.

Ooooh, Tom Ford frangraces are to die for, I’ve tried as many as I could find but own Black Orchid. M6 current summer go to is Versace Yellow Diamonds. It’s bright and fizzy. Used to love, love, love, Gwen Stefani’s first fragrence L.A.M.B. I don’t know if it’s still available but it’s the ultimate summer fragrance.

Elizabeth & James Nirvana White in the day and
Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black at night!

or
Vera Wang Princess (although I hate the name)

A custom order I got from Epically Epic with notes of jasmine, vanilla, and gardenia. I’m OBSESSED with it, and I’m not even a big fan of white floral notes! I originally had it made for a friend who loves white florals, but I’m totally hooked now, I even wear it to bed.

Hi Christine! Mine is Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay, it is fruity and light, but with a woody/spicy note in the end which makes you feel refreshed in this summer heat, love love love.

It’s still Still by Jennifer Lopez. I have more than a dozen others, including Chanel, Michael Kors, Dior and Guerlain fragrances but I still (STILL, heh) come back to this one time and time again.

it just suits me so well.

I’ve been on the hunt for a new signature fragrance for months and having tried dozens of perfumes I’ve fallen hard for Cartier Baiser Vole – fresh and floral and feminine without being dull or boring.

I’m crazy for tropical fragrances in the summer, so I’m alternating between Pacifica’s Indian Coconut Nectar and Tahitian Gardenia.

Mine is English Laundry Signature for Her. I was introduced to it by Birchbox 2 months ago and quickly ordered the gift set. I really love it! Prada Candy is my second one favorite at the moment.

I’ve been on a layering kick lately, so my scent has been Creed’s Virgin Island Water over Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess over whatever sample of sandalwood perfume I can find. It’s really lovely and not strong, even though it’s several different perfumes.

I work at Sephora so I get to wear different fragrances almost every day at work. I’m not usually big on florals, but I am loving Chloe’s “Roses de Chloe,” and Balenciaga’s “Florabotanica.” Also, Maison Martin Margiela’s ‘Replica’ line, especially “Flower Market” and “Jazz Club,” are amazing! I’m seriously considering buying one or the other even at the steep $125 price.

DKNY Be Delicious and Versace Yellow Diamond are my summer go-to’s. Would love to try Dior’s Blooming Bouquet and D&G’s Dolce. I need a Sephora run!

I really like Si Lolita, too. My current favorites are Chanel Bois des Iles (that’s my perennial favorite), Armani Prive Rose Alexandrie and Kilian Beyond Love. Also Madonna Truth or Dare.
And about 100 more, I’m such a perfume nut!

I’m currently bouncing between Chiffon and Violet Mallow from Solstice Scents. They’re both wonderfully creamy and sweet but not too sugary or “edible” like a lot of gourmands can be. Not to mention Violet Mallow lasts for a full day or longer on me(!) and fades to a wonderfully mature light marshmallow scent as time goes on.

I’ve been wearing Coolife Le Premier Parfum. It’s not exactly summery but I’ve been trying to review it. I like it but I think I’ll be switching to something lighter until the fall hits.

Right now it is Elizabeth & James Nirvana White and White layered over Black! For some reason I don’t like the smell of Black by itself. :-/

Have you tried them? 😀

Marc Jacobs Honey. I wear it alone sometimes but I always mix it with other perfumes. It works well with like everything

Oh, no! Not another Tom Ford Fragrance shout out. Based on your love for Oud Wood it was my initial introduction and I have fallen so very far down the slippery slope of his fragrances. Can’t wait to check out this one now!

I like cold weather sweater type fragrances best.. they feel so cozy and luxurious. Summer, I tend not to wear fragrance because my skin chemistry does not suit traditional warm weather style lighter, fruitier, super floral fragrance. Instead, during the summer, I use scented body wash. They are lighter and do not overpower my senses. Korres has a number of really nice body washes and I like Japanese Rose and Jasmine.

My favourite real fragrance: Creed Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie. Total love affair with this scent.

Right now, I’m obsessed with Marc Jacobs Dot and Fresh Sugar Lychee.

I’m also loving Britney Spears Island Fantasy, but it has such poor staying power that it’s tough to name it as a favorite.

at the moment i am obsessing over my Tory Burch perfume. also i need to get my hands on the Elizabeth and James Nirvana White. got a sample of it and my husband cant keep his hands off me when i wear it.

Hi Christine, I llove Plum Japonais. I’m also a big fan of Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens, and Figuier Eden by Armani Privé.

DKNY Be Delicious is my favorite, but my very special-important-occasion-only one is one I get at an Irish imports shop in town called “Inis.”

I LOVE La Panthere by Cartier. I have never received so many compliments from women AND men on a fragrance I’ve worn. I love the big cats, and the bottle which is carved into the face of a panther is simply exquisite. It’s referred to as a feline floral fragrance. I’m coming close to calling it my signature fragrance!

Chloe’s See Eau Fraiche is my new warm weather favourite and I’m also loving 2 scents from Atelier – Grand Neroli and Mistral Patchouli.

My current favourite fragrance is Bottega Veneta. A really beautiful scent that others have complimented me about. Another favourite is Dolce and Gabana’s Sicily and my all time favourite Poeme by Lancôme – an oldy but a goodie.

For summer: Jo Malone English Pear and Fresia. Also Cheap n Chic by moschino.
Winter: Hmm, I am on an Opium by YSL kick at present but I also love Guerlain’s L’instant and Insolence perfumes too.

besides MAC’s Turquatic which can be worn during any season I would say Victoria’s Secret’s
Bombshell Summer 2011 just recently re-promoted due to popular demand

Roses De Chloe…LOVE LOVE this fragrance. It’s just a clean, feminine scent with a hint of rose…it’s perfect. I was also wearing Marc Jacobs Daisy orginal scent. I wore that one for years. The body lotion with the little shimmery flecks is amazing also.

Chanel Coco Mademioselle is my everyday, interchanging with all the lovely samples I got (the usual suspects like Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, Marc Jacobs Honey, Flower Bomb and a few others). But! I am soo getting MAC’s Turquatic when my Chanel runs out (and that’s gonna be soon)! I am a total snob when it comes to fragrances, so this is not because I am slowly turning into a MAC junkie and will by it just cause it’s MAC :), it really suits me so well that I just have to have it 🙂

I’ve been alternating Repetto, Coach Poppy Flower and Hermes Un Jardin après la Mousson.

I love love love Repetto, but on me I think it will suit slightly cooler weather more. I favor the Hermes on really hot, super-summery days and the Coach on the more springy weather days!

TEA! After quite a bit of searcing, I finally found a fragrance oil that smells like tea. I love it and can’t get myself to switch to anything else right now.

Issey Miyake – L’Eau D’Issey
Ralph Lauren Romance (the original one)
Bath and Body Works – Sheer Freesia
Aura Cacia Chill Pill essential solutions (essential oil blend)
