    I still love Chanel No. 5. I recently went looking for Private Collection by Estee Lauder because my mother used to wear it and I thought it might trigger good smell memories for her. Tough to find!

    1. littleredbear | | #33

      Chanel No. 5 is my favorite!!

    2. JayElle1987 | | #44

      Do you have a good place to buy Chanel No. 5? My mom has been trying to find it for ages but I know the formula has changed over time so maybe she's just looking for something that doesn't exist anymore?

      1. ln2 | | #62

        Nordstrom.com Just be sure to look to see the label says Paris and it isn’t L’eau, which is a lighter version.

    OVER the Holidays,my sister gave me the cologne "Maja",which was out of production; there used to be only TALC made in Mexico.Its my favorite cologne. But they stopped making the perfume,only did the TALC in Mexico., until my sister found the bottled form, recently, SURPRISE and gave it to me at Xmas.Its an exotic,old fashioned scent.I love it.:D It made me feel very beautiful, heh. I'm kind of old fashioned about scent; roses, lilac,,gardenia perfumed oil is great.Chanel #5 was still made from real flowers, I loved that. Yes, my mom bought perfume I wanted to steal,as a kid. HA HA It used to be if you wore a perfume at a social gathering one of the guys would smell it,and turn around,and say,"Wow, beautiful smell, who's wearing it?"--so I guess the male of the species actually IS OR WAS attracted to scent if you wore it.

    I just can't get ahold of "desert,food smells" as PERFUME. Why would I want to smell like a LEMON, or a CHOCOLATE DESSERT? I can see vanilla, but I can't see more than that.OK,PEPPERMINT is yummy,but not on ME. ON the FOOD! I bought this wonderful oil "Red Poppy," but they discontinued the scent--to start making DESSERT FOOD SMELLS. Prada sounds wonderful.

    I am stopped or tapped on the shoulder from strangers on the sidewalk or waiting in line asking what perfume I am wearing. I get comments like “it is divine”, heavenly, yummy, and one elderly gentleman that told me he had to stop and go back to find the source of the most beautiful scent he has perceived in years, so stopped, backtracked, until he was able to pick up the scent once more and find the person wearing it. He told me his wife, now deceased, wore something similar and she was the best thing he had ever smelled until he was out for a walk today and picked up on the scent while I was passing him by going the opposite direction. It is mostly elderly men or young men in their in their 20’s that ask. (I am 68) I also have women comment or ask as well. Other perfumes don’t do a thing for me and I smell like the men’s locker room after a hockey game. So when asked I reply I am wearing “COCO MADEMOISELLE” by CHANEL. I use the double strength as it only costs a few dollars more and lasts all day sans reapplying. Prior to this I wore CHANEL #5, getting the same reaction but to a lesser degree.

    My favorites at the moment is Jo Malone's English Pear & Freesia, which is a cologne. My newest is Armani/Prive Orangerie Venise. The first perfume that I loved was Shalimar by Guerlain Paris. It was also a first gift of perfume from my husband, 52 years ago.

  9. dkbshirk54 | | #9

    Tough question...either jo Malone blush & peony or Ralph Lauren romance or DKny apple...amongst others :)

  10. Kbudesilich | | #10

    I can’t choose just one, so...
    Trish McEvoy’sBlackberry and Vanilla

    Wild Bluebell by Jo Malone

    I am a scent person. I just recently tried Flatter spray in the scent Pineapple Grove and love it!

    Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. The name says it all....

    At the moment its Mugler by Angel - I got a free sample here of it https://www.megafreestuff.co.uk/free-mugler-angel-perfume/ and I am going to buy big bottle, it smells amazing.

  13. islandpeach | | #13

    My fragrance favourites have changed many times over the years. What's appropriate at 18 may not be right at 58. Our body chemistry changes too and although classics will always be classics they change over time as ingredients become unavailable (or even illegal).
    I would kill ( kidding) for a small vial of Joy by Patou in its original form . Or even Tosca (4711).
    For a very entertaining read : The Little Book of Perfumes by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez.
    Don't laugh but if you like single florals one of the best was (now unavailable) a barbershop aftershave by Pinaud called Lilac Vegetal. After the alcohol evapped what was left was a very romantic, old-fashioned garden scent , completely top-note and uncomplicated.
    What do I wear now (on the rare occasion that I wear scent). It's a custom blend with bottom notes of labdanum, oud and myrhh; middle notes of sandalwood, oakmoss and clary sage, and top notes of damask rose and lilac. So i guess it would be called an Oriental/Floral.
    Sadly when it's gone it's gone because the perfumer is gone.

    My favourite perfume is Chanel No 19 EDP perfume (https://www.theperfumesdiary.com/perfume-reviews/best-chanel-perfume/) and It is a vibrant perfume that you can wear daily or for special occasions.

  16. KarinTS | | #16

    4711 or Echt Kölnischwasser made in München for forever. Used to be readily available, now need to buy it on Amazon or go to Europe.
    Maya, another really old cologne that was once ubiquitous, now on Amazon and expensive.
    And Shalimar.

    1. islandpeach | | #22

      I'm with you on those choices. Lovely classic scents.

    My absolute favorite is Fracas with a lovely freesia fragrance. However, my current fragrances are Rare Gold & Passion, both by Avon. Both are beautiful soft florals. I constantly get complements from men & women about how wonderful I smell.

  18. MrsJSpare | | #18

    I used the very heavy fragrance Rhumba by Balenciaga for years. Now at 67, I wear the complete turnaround from my younger days; La Vie est Belle. My grandchildren love it on me and so do I!

  19. maggiern | | #19

    Chanel No. 22 for daytime; Chanel No. 5 for evening (and the body powder for after bath or shower). Southern women will NEVER stop using body powder!

    Lalique -- my favorite for a number of years.

  22. user-7541004 | | #24

    My all-time favorite is Arpege by Lanvin. Hard to find nowadays, but still available ( when I last checked) at the Vermont Country Store. Simply fabulous!

  23. MEK82751 | | #25

    My favorite since I was 15 in 1967, was "Heaven Sent" by Helena Rubinstein. I bought it for years until it was reformulated by Dana--I did not like the new formula. So sad. Supposedly, there is a company that can duplicate perfumes with the original that are no longer on the market, but I have not tried it--I guess I don't trust they could actually achieve the exact fragrance.

    1. Eileen91 | | #49

      Me too--loved Heaven Sent--until the formula was changed. It was never the same.

  24. Lesley87 | | #26

    Hubby bought me Opium many years ago. Although I love it I refuse to pay over £30 for a perfume and its at least double that. Same goes for Poison. Now I use an old Body shop perfume or a scented bodyspray.

    I used to think I would never find my perfect perfume, but once I accidentally ran into the stand of Estee Lauder at the airport between two flights and fell in love with Estee Lauder Modern Muse. Since then I have been wearing it.

  27. Davidhawkins | | #29

    There are phases of favourite perfume. When it comes to perfume for women, ranging from sweet smelling to long lasting to fresh odour. Jimmy Choo Signature, 6/54. Dior, VERSACE Womens Bright Crystal Eau De Toilette, are some of the highest in demand.

  28. marionswish | | #30

    I just got this one - https://www.freestuffca.com/free-mugler-angel-perfume/ its so nice! I got a free sample of it, then my husband bought me a the big bottle of it. Its the best!

  29. user-7052553 | | #31

    My favorite is Beautiful by Estee Lauder. I am confidently smelling "beautiful" when I wear the scent and it makes me feel feminine. Also, it leaves a lasting memory on others who compliment me.
    Its my "signature" scent.

  30. user-850024 | | #32

    In Cuba, 15 was like sweet 16 in the U.S. On turning that magical age, a girl was gifted with special jewelry from her parents and close relatives, a beautiful soiree, an elaborate ball gown and a French perfume. My family had to flee from Cuba when I was 13, leaving everything behind due to the 1959 revolution which brought Fidel Castro to power. In the U.S. When I turned 15, although there was no longer money for jewelry or a fancy party, I was given a very special perfume, Shalimar by Guerlain. I loved it so much I have worn it exclusively to this day, almost sixty years later. I guess you could say it is my signature scent.

  31. sandystitches | | #34

    I've worn L'EAU D'ISSEY by Issey Miyake for a lot of years now. A friend of mine took a trip to Paris quite a few years ago and came home with bottles and testers for all of us. I think her and I are the only ones still wearing it. I have been stopped and asked what it was and received compliments for it. My husband still goes crazy over it 14 years later!

    I was born and raised in Texas, where (at that time) you didn't leave the house without your perfume and your lipstick on! Nowadays, I don't wear lipstick much, but I still always put on my perfume.

    Oh!!! And don't laugh, but I somehow stumbled through a whiff of WHITE SHOULDERS not too long ago--oh the memories that brought back!!!! My Mom wore it while I was a kid and I wore it through high school. I didn't know if they still made it and I never did find who was wearing it...talk about a ghost from my past!

    Chanel No. 5 for years. Sometimes, though, I will spray on Musk by Alyssa Ashley. These are my 2 favorites.

  33. user-2510887 | | #36

    My favorite perfume is Jil Sanders No. 4. Initially discovered on sample in Vanity Fair magazine. Unfortunately it has been discontinued but Zi have continued to find through EBay. My 2 nd favorite, Escape by Calvin Klein, has also been discontinued but I find in various places. I’m very sensitive to perfumes so it disheartens me when my favs are no longer available.

  34. sparklewench | | #37

    Le Wild by Chantecaille. A true gardenia perfume that truly is soft and each note completes the scent of a gardenia. I found from Lanikai Bath and Body from Hawaii, Tahitian Gardenia body wash and body lotion that almost smells identical to this perfume!

    1. doreet | | #57

      OH YES GARDENIA!!! my mom and I used to buy single Gardenia corsagges from a street florist when we went into San Francisco,to meet my sister.Just one gardeirna gave out a strong wonderful scent when you wore it.---It was amazing. I still hold that floral scents are the most influential to humans.-Has anyone tried "Flower Bomb"? I'm curious especially considering WHO'S perfume it is.

    I have collected (and received) so many perfumes over the last few years, so it’s about time to share a few of my faves. I use perfumes every day according to my mood. It’s that finishing touch that completes a look and identity.

    Like my style, my preference for scents has changed over the years. I used to wear fresh scents and these days I prefer to wear more sweet scents. I recognize that the rose scent is a big favorite ingredient for me now.

    I have selected five of my favorites in this post, but by the time I am ticking this, I got two more BIG favorites to add to this list: Lancome ‘Idole’ and Givenchy ‘Irresistible’

    Blue Grass! My mom wore it and her mother before her, so I have a lot of memories associated with it.

    Gentle Fluidity Gold Eau de Parfum

    It is not too heavy. Light and airy, yet it is always noticed. The sort of scent you want to melt into.

    My favorite everyday perfume is Giorgio but it is no longer available by the original maker. There are some knockoffs but they are not the same. I loved the gardenia scent and everyone used to tell me how much they liked the scent. I really miss it.😥

  44. Eileen91 | | #50

    My favorites were Cachet and Heaven Sent. Both not made anymore, at least not in the original formula. When Cachet was being discontinued, I bought all the bottles I could find. I'm now down to about 1/2 of the last bottle. I wear it only for special occasions, trying to make it last.

    Giorgio is my favourite everyday perfume, however it is no longer available from the original manufacturer. Some knockoffs exist, but they are not the same. I adored the aroma of gardenias, and everyone used to compliment me on it. It's something I genuinely miss. Check More Details here-->

    As you know person's fragrance is a good indication of their personality. I use Bleu de Chanel and it is absolute class. It is an elegant and authoritative fragrance at the same time. After you spray it on, you will feel more confident.

    Tabac 28 by Le Labo. It is their signature Miami scent. It is reminiscent of what I think Hemingway’s Cuba must have been. I often get asked what scent I’m wearing…mostly by men. My backup is Bergamo, also by Le Labo. And then, there’s always Chanel #5.

    According to me, Jimmy Choo's Perfume For Men is the best perfume for men. Jimmy Choo perfume is a modern and fresh fragrance that combines aromatic, fruity, and woody components. Honeydew melon, pink pepper, pineapple leaf, lavender, patchouli, and suede are among the notes.

We can buy Kiehl's perfumes both online and through many beauty retail stores at the most reasonable prices. I bought this product online through Amazon and it is working really well. If possible, just give it a try.

    I must admit I’m a cologne kind-of-guy. Changing scents with the different seasons. Jo Malone is my favourite. Specifically, Pomegranate Noir in summer and Whisky & Cedarwood for the winter months. I also like layering their scents for something a little more dynamic. Oh, and they last.

    Aromatics Elixir by Clinique. A friend gave me a sample several years ago and its been my signature ever since.
