I have always loved perfumes and oils and I have quite a collection that I use as the mood strikes...but I am getting low on many of them and it is time to think about making that Birthday gift list sooooooo..
what do you wear and what do you like and why?
my all-time innocent favorite is Muguet des Bois(lily of the valley)--reminds me of my youth and a cousin who gave it to me as a gift who is passed now...
but I also love the scent of lilac, usually in an oil.
My favorite perfumes are: Obsession, Rare Rubies(Avon), Coty Wild Musk, Revlon's Fire and Ice, White Shoulders, Sand and Sable, CK's Truth, (and also Mesmerize, Odyssey, Foxfire, Jasmine, Raining Violets, Honeysuckle, Lemon Velvet, Hawaiian White Ginger--all old classic Avon you can only find at flea markets or once a year in the book.)
But I need something new....I like the oriental/spicy blends, but not for all the time. I wear the lighter single notes more often--spring flowers and citrus, sweet and pure and crisp. My husband bought me White Diamonds a couple of years ago, and while I like it---I would not have bought it myself--it is a little too overwhelmingly heavy floral, but it is nice at the end of the day when most of it has mellowed and I do occasionally mix it with other scents.
For some reason I can't wear freesia or violets anymore(or Avon's old Sweet honesty--remember that one?)--they were favorites of mine years ago..now they make me nauseous. My mother bought me a beautiful bottle of Lauren for graduation, now I can't get near it without feeling ill.
Lee, my husband, wears Cool Water and Drakkar Noir. he needs a change too---so guys! what do you wear?
