Perfumes!! What are Your Favorites.. - Page 2

post #31 of 45
I like Britney Spears Curious, but I rarely wear it anymore. I'm a full time student and one of my teachers last semester had scent sensitivities (my Mom does too). So usually I wear a light body spray for school, like Bath & Bodyworks Rice Flower & Shea or Avon Banana Coconut (it's lighter than most coconut sprays tend to be). Right now, I'm not working/summer break so I've been using fruitier sprays.

My DH wears Hugo and Calvin Klein. He has another one that smells but I can't remember what it's called.

But people aren't sensitive to the same chemicals. One person may be sensitive to chanel no 5, while another can't be in the same room as someone who wears J'adore. The fragrance industry is so huge, and uses so many chemicals (natural or otherwise) for so many things that the idea of banning fragranced products is unrealistic.

Well, not really -- smoke is much more aggressive, being propelled into the atmosphere by burning, and the particles that make up smoke are relatively huge. Also, we know for a fact that cigarettes contain carcinogens and other outright poisons, whereas many fragrances contain nothing more than alcohol and essential oils. So I really don't think you can equate the two.

Sure it does! But that doesn't give me the right to make it illegal for him to use it. It just means I should avoid getting on the elevator with him!

I still remember the smell of the cold, pristine breeze coming down from the Cairngorm mountains in the highlands of Scotland when we were there in 2001. It was the sweetest air I've ever tasted, and I felt healthier just taking a deep breath.

So I do get your point, Gail, and I agree that our air is overloaded with chemicals, especially in cities. And when buying household products, I choose Unscented every time. But I'm more concerned about the exhaust of millions of automobiles, the fumes of thousands of factories, and the effects of second-hand smoke than about the use of fragrance.

You can equate the two. Fragrance contains carcinogens and other outright poison. Fragrances that are natural are not the problem. Don't take my word for it. Look it up.Chemical Fragrance is carcinogenic. It is worse than cigarette smoke.

my mom has about 10 bottles of perfume on her dresser, I think that's the only thing my dad knows how to buy for her

I'm not big on wearing perfume, I'm more of a body spray person, but a woman at work wears Pleasures and it is divine!

my favorite men's cologne is Obsession, a little old fashioned, but that stuff makes me it's like a Pavlov's dog reaction

There are also some natural aromatic compounds that are carcinogenic. And most synthesized aromatic chemicals are not carcinogenic.

Carcinogenic compounds are found in many products including paint, cat litter, toilet cleaner, adhesives, flea powder, moth repellent, correction fluid and shoe polish. By now they are almost certainly in the air we breathe and the water we drink.

Natural compounds are not automatically better than synthetic ones.

This thread is about favorite perfumes, not how toxic they are. If you want to speak about the dangers of perfumes, please do so in the thread in IMO and let's keep this one on topic.

Thank you!

*sheepish look* I'll stay on topic from now on

Does anyone wear gourmand perfumes? Someone mentioned Thierry Mugler's Angel as having a dessert like quality to it. I love perfumes/shampoos/body creams that smell like dessert, which is why I frequently shop at Lush.
I use their soft coeur and Each Peach massage bars, and frequently use them as solid perfumes.

I love Sand & Sable, and have used nothing else for years now. As soon as I finish combing my hair in the morning I spritz some on.

After reading your post i had to go and smell my Angel perfume again I don't smell any dessert like qualities to it at all

It smells more like a musky floral/sweet scent to me. I love it! Could just be my nose though! If you're really into dessert scents though, you might want to try something else.

(I'm a Lush freak too!!! If you like sweet stuff have you tried some of their products like Rockstar, Snow Fair, The Godmother, and MMM ??? They're really yummy! (you have to really like sweet scents to appreicate them though!) They also have a great smelling chocolate butter cream soap i bet you'd like!!)

I have some spritzers that have food smells. It's a brand called "Smell This" and they made bubble bath, body wash, air freshener, lotion, and spritzer/body spray (and some other stuff) with smells like cake batter, cookie dough, fresh towels, peaches, etc... I love food smells! I have a Philosophy body/hair wash that is scented like Frango mint chocolates and it really smells like them...mmm...

I can't wear any. The smell gives me a migraine.

I wear Chanel Gardenia. I love that it smells like the flowers and it always reminds me of my Grandfathers house. He used to grow gardenias and bring a few flowers inside his house and float them in bowls of water.

Unfortunately this scent has been returned to the vault by Chanel and won't be for sale again for quite sometime. There are not many perfumes that I like the smell of because many are way too strong. This one was just perfect. Oh well, I'll savor the little I have left.
