I remember Sweet Honesty -- it smelled exactly like baby powder. Very sweet and innocent.  I used to love Avon's Soft Musk talcum powder for summer.

I adore perfume to this day! In high school I wore Heaven Scent and Coty's Flambeau, Woodhue, and Tigress (I generally received fragrance as gifts and sometimes got lucky!)  I would still love to get my hands on some original Heaven Scent!

I don't think this one was around when I was a teenager, but I probably wouldn't have been sophisticated enough to own it anyway!

I remember some kind of light musky oil ... was it Bonnie Bell? Came in a flat round bottle with a green round top I think.  *Need to Goggle it *Sounds strange for a teenager but that's how I was. I did  not like super sweet scents. There was plenty of interesting perfumes in everyday shampoos so maybe I felt no need. I wasnt really into perfume until my 20s then it leveled off as I got older
I think someone gave me aTabu perfume gift set Phew! Not a fan. I remember my mom having a small bottle of L'Air du Temps.

I remember a perfume by Palmo Picasso (?) my first real grown up perfume --I must have been 20---then moved on to Estee Lauder.

Now everyone seems allergic to scent, and wearing anything at work is a no-no, so I do not bother much except to occasionally spray around my bedroom every now and then or lightly spritz on lingerie.

I think this may have been it. The cap is familiar the bottle was different, unless I am confusing it with another brand:

I'm wearing Jovan right now, Swest! It's not the same as the original and doesn't have any staying power like the original. But it's reminiscent enough that I enjoy it as a light fragrance in the summer.

In my early teens I wore really, really cheap ones that came in tiny bottles - Muguet (Lily of the Valley?), Tosca (musk?), something by Yves Rocher...in my late teens when I worked alongside school, I moved right onto Guerlain!
  • Complexion: NC 15 winter, NC 20 summer. Still oily.
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: *Very* fine + wavy. Middle / dark blonde (my natural hair color) with some highlights.

anne - I think you wore some nice scents for a young girl.  I still have one from Yves Rocher - Voile d'Ambre - that I will be wearing again as soon as the weather cools down a bit!

Of course, you made a huge jump when you hit the Guerlain counter. :wink:

I wore Coty Muguet de Bois, Cacharel Anais Anais, 4711 and the long discontinued Avon Come Summer.  Years later I bought the rereleased Come Summer but it just didn't have the same staying power I remembered  :(

I know what you mean, Thanna.  I am always sorry when I try to revisit an old fragrance and discover it has been reformulated.  They're never quite as good, are they? :(
