Have you switched to your fall scents yet?
« on: September 21, 2012, 11:37:31 PM »
I have!  I fidget all summer wanting to get back to my favorite, heavier perfumes.  I know I can't get away with using them in our hot, humid climate, but lately it has been a little cooler here.

That means I can use my Aromatics Elixir, Voile d'Ambre, and two sprays of Sensuous Nude and Eau Premiere.  I know this may not sound exciting to everyone else, but I am pumped!

I am also experimenting with using scented oils as a base to bring out my favorite notes.  I have musk, amber, vanilla, and patchouli from C.O. Bigelow.  They look so cute lined up in their little brown bottles with their little wand applicators.  I feel like a mad scientist!  Sometimes I even use them by themselves, especially for sleep.

What - you don't wear fragrance for sleeping?  You really should try it.

So...what have you all been smelling like lately, hmm?

It's still in the 90s here in TX but I've pulled out my fall scents too.  I just use the calendar to decide when to make the switch since the weather doesn't always cooperate.  I've been reaching for 10 Corso Como, Comme des Garcons Ouarzazate, Guerlain Angelique Noire,  Le Labo Rose 31 and FM Musc Ravageur. 

I love wearing scent to bed!  Just be sure to switch it up.  I went through a phase where I wore Guerlain Eau de Shalimar to bed almost every night.  Guess what happened the first time I work it to work that year?  That's right - I barely kept my eyes open all day!   :eek:

btw - I love Voile d'Ambre!

I know - it's a cheap thrill and the only Yves Rocher I own, but the others I might have liked seem to be discontinued.  I always read reviews before I order anything and that was how I found it.  Love woody Orientals!

Oops - I left out Narciso Rodriguez For Her.  I may save this one for colder weather, though.

I don't feel like wearing scent, not even Mitsouko. I have a bottle and I like smelling it because it instantly transports me to a 'secret place of my own', but I cannot wear it on my skin. I like the scent of my current body butter, which I use every morning after a shower. It is by Perlier and it smells of almonds. I need to have a foray into some perfume departments....

Oops.

Well, not everyone likes it.  I was curious about your reaction.

Haven't switched quite yet; I am at the very end of Delices de Cartier that I started wayyyy too long ago (that'll teach me not to buy the larger bottle for a good deal, since I like changing scents but don't like leaving a bottle open/unused for too long).  Next up for me is Hanai Mori Butterfly -- I loved it but bought it around a year ago, so I don't remember if it's EDT, EDP, etc.  Just looking forward to starting it in the next week or so when Cartier uses up.

Now that Sephora is carrying the Atelier colognes I look forward to trying their amber scent.  I have Vanille Insensee and Oolang Infini and both work well for fall weather in TX.  Sadly, none available in my closest store yet.   :(

I must be the minority here because I wear the same fragrance all year long.  Arpege.

Nothing wrong with having a signature scent!
