Spill the beans.  What are your favorite fragrances?

Do you have different scents you wear seasonally?  Or for date night vs. every day?
What about for your guy?

    I wear Giorgio Armani Si. I would say it is floral with a vanilla base? I don't wear perfume regularly, just to work (sometimes), events, or date night. I want to buy the house perfume from Sezane but I don't see the point until I'm back in the office/more regularly socializing.

    My everyday perfume is mademoiselle by Coco Channel or Princess by Vera Wang
    I have a few different ones I wear on different occasions but those are my fave.

    I love floral eau de parfum from Coach. It's my go-to for pretty much everything.

    On my “moving” flight from Canada to US 3 years ago, I had some time to kill a the airport Duty Free and purchased D&G Light Blue; it’s since become my one and only perfume. 

    I’ve worn a few throughout the year; I think immediately before discovering Light Blue, I was into Elie Saab Le Parfum; and before that it was Lancôme’s Miracle. But I’ve grown out of them both. 

    @inthewoods23 @BusinessWife I also never heard about wearing a special perfume to remind me of our wedding day. Then again we had a pretty atypical wedding so, I didn’t look into any special customs.

    Aaaah, this thread is bringing back memories! I haven’t worn perfume since TTC (thanks ISWTE!😄) or nail polish, or anything else disruptive to hormones/the immune system. So this is a fun way to live vicariously through others. I want to try some of the ones y’all have mentioned. (I didn’t think I was really into perfumes at all but I wrote a novel here! Surprised myself.)
    I’ve been a vanilla perfume person since high school?/college. Over the years I’ve graduated to roll-on vanilla oil. Then I heard that the scent of vanilla makes men feel attracted to you so I stopped wearing it at work. It’s my signature scent though and can’t wait till I can wear it again daily. 
    Way back when, I switched to Mademoiselle by Chanel for work. It’s a nice light barely-there scent perfect for work. I see you @daisy0322.😉
    Then I found the original Juicy Couture perfume, which is light & faintly sweet: vanilla, tuberose, water lilies. 
    My last favorite is Bluebell by Jo Malone. It is so simple: fresh & clean & smells like springtime. 
    My absolute fave perfume of all time was Beauty by Kate Spade. It smelled exactly like Hawai’i: gardenias, honeysuckle, tuberose, jasmine, and fresh air all rolled into one beautiful bottle. But alas, as is the fate of every single amazing product that I find and fall in love with, it was discontinued after I got my first bottle. Tears ensued for years over this loss. 💔 💐

    Love this thread. I'm terrible at trying to choose a new fragrance. However, my father in law bought all of his daughter in laws a bottle of Prada Candy for Christmas, and I'm really enjoying it. It's like the perfect combination of sweet but soft in my opinion. I smell slight hints of flowers, but mostly a caramel/vanilla scent
