I have Chanel Chance and Oscar de la Renta.

I don't bother asking what other people use so I have no idea what I like on others.

I tried Evening In Bakersfield but after all of the complaints about how bad I smelled I stopped using cologne altogether.

Whatever Jays was wearing last night is what I like. I'm still sniffing my pillow, reminds me of him.

You do realize that most of what the posters are listing cannot really be referred to as perfume. Read some articles about what substances are actually in these scents and then read about the true art of perfume making and what ingredients are used for those and you might have a change of heart about what you spray on your body.

Prior to World War II, all fine perfume was 100% natural and chemical free. Perfume was made by combining extracts from flowers and plants that were almost always farmed organically or wildcrafted with 100% natural "spirits of wine" or wine alcohol distilled from grapes grown in the great wine regions of France. However, after the war, the chemical industry, which had experienced rapid growth in response to the war effort, needed new market to keep factories running and began manufacturing "fragrance" or synthetic perfume.

At first this may have looked like a great idea. The price of synthetic flower and plant extracts used to make perfume was dirt cheap by comparison. Furthermore, there was less hassle - no farming, no harvesting, no variation of flower scent from batch to batch and therefore no variation of a particular perfume from batch to batch. What's more, the imitation flower and plant essences used to make synthetic perfume were mixed with cheap alcohol made from petroleum instead of wine alcohol.

We now know that this process and product are hazardous to your health and harmful for the enviroment. Not only is petroleum a nonrenewable resource, but it is refined using harmful chemicals and additives that cause cancer. These synthetic chemicals can also contain "hormone disrupters" which means that in addition to causing cell damage, they can also mimic hormones in the body that promote tumor growth.

Haven't experienced this stuff yet, but I'd love to...

Yes... mine hasn't been listed yet. I could drop the name but then it would be overused

I have always loved the original Curve on men, drives me crazy. Even if some old greased up guy walks by doused in it. Which is usually the case, lol. I just love the smell. My personal favorite right now for me, is LAMB by Gwen Stefani. I also like Fendi Palazzo.
