I just pulled out my Dolce & Gabbana The One for spring and summer. I still like it but not as much as I did originally so I'm on the hunt for a new scent.

I like scent in the warm seasons more than the cold ones. There's something about a waft of scent in a warm summer breeze that I really like. But I don't like strong scent. I walked into an elevator recently and just about choked on the fragrance left behind by someone who had already left. I much prefer to be the only one who knows that I'm wearing a fragrance.

I agree! but I do like scent in the winter; I love the faint smell of perfume on a cashmere  scarf  or sweater.

I also wear scent everyday, even when home alone. Some favorites: Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker,Falling inLove and Amazing Grace,both by Philosophy and Tova Nights by Tova. I recently tried a sample of Candy Florale by Prada;I'm waiting on a bottle I ordered from Ebay. I also want to test the new one by Gucci called Bamboo.

I stopped wearing perfume when I started taking public transportation and that was 18 years ago. Now that I drive to work, it was just never a part of my morning routine so I don't think twice about. My co-workers wear enough that I'm sure at the end of the day, I have many wonderful scent attached to me.  :grin:

For me, the scent that always drew compliments was the original ‘Rive Gauche’; sadly  the modern version is nothing like the 80s  version. I like ‘Mitsouko’  but I have to be in the right mood. My husband bought me Serge Lutens’ ‘Feminite du Bois’ last Christmas and I am rationing it because it was so expensive. I am not keen on wearing scent when the weather is hot and humid.
What are your favourites, Jenn?

I do not wear perfume to work. Also, not anywhere I think I might be anxious or generally unhappy. Smelling the same scent later would bring it all back to me. Am I weird or what? The memory comes back in full force, I almost re-live the life situration I was in when wearing that scent. So, I only tend to apply some when I am relaxing and having fun. Ok this sounds really odd. BTW I suddenly got a lemming for Nahema (again).
