My favorite perfume is Cabotine by Gres. My mother-in-law has gotten it for me and I cannot find it anywhere where I live. I also have Vera Wang perfume that I love. I cannot stand anything that smells melon-y so I am hard to buy for. My favorite scent on my husband is Obsession for Men (he hates it but will wear it for me on occasion). I like Anais Anais but haven't bought that in ages. I also like Magic Noir (Lancome),

I also like Rose Essentielle as someone else mentioned in a previous post. I got a bottle for friend, and I kept the little sample spritzer. My husband liked it very much. Unfortunately, I'm just not a floral girl. I think flowers smell nice, but I like to smell edible.

Since I prefer to smell like food, I buy Angel for myself. I always get compliments from women on the way it smells! So, either I'm wearing too much or it really smells great. I also wear Happy by clinique occasionally. My husband likes that one as well.

When I was younger I used to wear natural essential oils. My favorite mix was orange sometimes mixed with a little cinnamon leaf.

Jil Sander Sun comes highly recommended, and you can purchase the alcohol-free body fragrance. I am looking into this one myself, as it sounds wonderful on paper, but it all comes down to body chemistry, doesn't it?

I've worn Timeless by Avon for almost 15 years. While I'm bored with it, I continue to get so many compliments from people telling me how good I smell I just CAN'T stop using it! (I think it works really well with my body chemistry).

My husband wears Corvette Black and it smells amazing on him.

Any guy try the Paris Hilton for Men? I was pleasantly surprised! I usually stick to the old school of Drakkar, but decided to get this. I got a free leather bag and watch(though a bit too feminine) as part of the promotion.
