I think I brought this up quite awhile ago(maybe a year?)...but oh well.
All I wanted was a new I stopped at the fragrance department at the Bon(Bon/Macy's now)...I'm content smelling something I like and a lady starts to talk to me about new fragrances...smell this...yadda yadda yadda. Now instead of saying "I'm doing fine by myself" I let her ramble on and on. Finally I say "Thank you" and walk away. She kept suggesting fragrances that would work for teenagers or Britney Spears fans. I cannot outright be rude to salespeople, because I work in retail and understand. However, I don't work on commission at all, and the new Bon/Macy's does. So I walk on to Nordstrom, where the set-up is nicer for fragrances anyways. They were polite, allowed me to walk about smelling whatever I desired. They offered advice, and they were not pushy one bit.
I still didn't find one I really loved, so I bought makeup instead.
I think I'm going to Sephora tonight, I like the no hassle environment.
What perfumes do you ladies wear?
What perfumes do you men like?
Burburry Brit was one of my favorites, oh and I liked Chanel Chance.
Oh, and I have FCUK Her right now(yes, I pretty much bought it because of the name) and I like it, but in 5 months, I have never, not once received one compliment on it. No one has even mentioned it in a bad way.

Love Spell from Victoria's Secret is lovely.

Passionate Kisses was my favorite (everybody told me I smelled like candy), but I can't find it anymore.

I use essential oils as perfume. I'd just as soon not pay for a label or bottle.

I have a gorgeous DKNY perfume that I wear for special occassions. For everyday I use a Body Shop moonflower spray, it smells lovely and it's not insanely expensive. Oh, and it doesn't make me sneeze like some perfumes do, lol.

Vanilla by L'Occitane
Happy by Clinique
Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden
Noa by Cacharel

I have tried Very Irresistible by Givenchy and Tranquility by Clarins and they both smell pretty good.

I like the smell of Happy and Heaven. But the strongest reaction I've had for perfume is when my friend would wear Opium by Yves Saint Laurent. It made me wanna do naughty things The only bad thing is, some people might think it's an "old lady" perfume.

Eternity by Calvin Klein is my favourite.

Make sure you ask for samples of any perfumes you want to try. Most stores have lots of samples to give away (and not just perfume).

I don't use any perfume I smell like nothing

I have a bad noise and all the perfumes are the same for me but my sister buys one of PUPA, in a rose chaped bottle, is nice. She said that "chance" of coco chanel was great...

Ralph Lauren
Ana Sui 'dreams'
Giorgio 'G'
Aqua diGio
Jean Paul Gaultier- this is the one perfume that I get the most comments about, it must just really suit me, I get amazed at how many people notice this......

I want.............
Issey Miyake- Leau D'Issey
Gucci 'Rush'- had a bottle of this before, and I just love it
Rochas 'Byzanze'- again had this before and I love it- nice for night time,

Like I said I am a perfume junky, but they are soooooooo nice

I con't tolerate strong perfumes, but I find Elizabeth Arden's to be very fresh and tolerable..Btw, Britney is doing a line for them Their newest one is called (I think) Phenomenal Woman, something like that. Supposedly, accdg to the saleswoman, men can't resist it She gave me a sample of the lotion and it smelled nice. I love their Sunflowers, Green Tea, Spiced Green Tea, and Red Door

I love pretty much anything at Bath and Body Works

Opium is hot
