A long time ago people here (CD) described it ranging from old to gross, but I absolutely love Chanel no.5.

I like the full range of fruity sprays- peach, apple, pear, etc.

I like Dana brand's Heaven Sent, Tabu, Ambush.

Two other top favorites: Avon's Sweet Honesty, and Chantilly (not sure who makes that one).

And one my daughter introduced me to: Jovan's Black Musk.

Oh, I also like the original Giorgio, but haven't seen it in a few years.

I don't like traditional colognes or perfumes (they irritate my sinuses) - I prefer my women to smell like fresh flowers if they apply a scent (not necessary) and personally I go either without anything or with something similar.

I smelled Tabac Original on my father recently. He's worn that aftershave for as long as I can remember. It always brings back so many memories. I love to smell that on him.

My tastes changes from time to time.

Philosophy's "Grace" series is my jam for the past year or so. I alternate between Pure Grace, Amazing Grace, and Living Grace.

Yes to Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet! Such a great everyday smell because it's not too strong.

I also use Burberry London a lot, but need to find a better way to apply it. I tend to put too much on because of the nozzle and end up making myself sick from the smell. :/

Shalimar is my favorite golden oldie.
Angel is my favorite newer fragrance.

Lately I've been loving Balenciaga Florabotanica, Prada Candy L'eau and Vetiver Tonka

I normally buy niche scents, very few mainstream, but this spring has been an exception to that rule.

I am allergic to most synthetic fragrances. Back in the day I used to love Coty's "Wild Musk."

These days I wear very light essential oils, usually a blend of sandalwood, musk, ylang-ylang, and also rose oil.

On women... Happy by Clinique. My wife started wearing that right before we got married, then on our honeymoon, and when we were newly-weds, and it drove me crazy! In a good way!

On me... Drakkar. Yeah I'm old school, but it always takes me back to the early 90s when I was fresh out of high school, and a simpler time. My wife likes it too.
