what product do you use to achieve the fragrance that you want? i know everyone wanted to smell good. some prefer to put on perfumes while others like colognes. while some others, just depend on their soaps or lotions for their fresh smell. i am particular with the way i smell but i seldom put on perfumes because it triggers my migraine. i just use lotions with a distinct floral smell. i am satisfied with it already. how about you? what do you use to smell good? any specific perfume that you like so much? or do you prefer to be identified with signature cologne? or perhaps you'd like to change perfumes and colognes from time to time, depending on your mood? please share :)

I use Lush products as they're a fresh and natural scent. You can layer your scent as you choose by combining bath products and moisturisers. It's fab. www.lush.com I also use BPAL oils for fragrance when I want something a bit heavier for going out. www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com

Lush has such great products. You visit a mall with one outlet and you are sure to be drawn to it... I don't use their soaps though but their toners are really effective. My honey uses them.^^

I just bought a new perfume oil from a company called Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab(or BPAL for short). The scent I just purchsed is called "White Rabbit". Here is the description for the BPAL site.... WHITE RABBIT Strong black tea and milk with white pepper, ginger, honey and vanilla, spilled over the crisp scent of clean linen. I think it's smells heavenly and it's a perfect year round scent. If you love perfumes, or just reading about scent descriptions (I have spent hours reading the descriptions on this site...they are just so fun!), check out: http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/

Depending on the time of day and season I'll use a perfume like True Star and Black to get my wanted fragrance.

I like Annick Goutal's Petite Cherie. It has this very fresh fruity floral scent. Very youthful. It reminds me of a very young lady on the brink of adulthood. It's a scent that's suitable for everyday use and never fails to get compliments. I wear it almost everyday and at almost all occasions. Very special. Also, I like L'artisan's Jour de Fete. This has a lovely scent of vanilla and almonds. Smells really like food. I love it as well and I use it on special occasions when I want to smell enticing. Additionally, I also like Jester Lorena's Orange Vanilla. Especially the body oil. I use it on occasions when I donn't want to apply a separate body moistuizer. This is a simple all in one product for me. The scent is wonderful and lasts all day. The natural vanilla in the product also smells really seductive.

Well... I mostly use Boss whenever I go to parties... I can't afford to use Boss everyday so I use adidas or Lomani in day to day life....

I love so many different scents but my favorite is Giorgio, when I go to work I only were the lotion so not to offend anyone with too much perfume but when I go out I like to use the soap, lotion and perfume. I just love to go to the counters and try all the new stuff too.

at home i spray lysol including the bathroom and the comfort room to keep them smell so good and to get rid of bacteria, as for ourselves after we take a bath we spray cologne in our body to keep us smooth and fresh.

I love Calgon for everyday use. Most especially the Hawaiian Ginger version. I love it and I always get compliments! I don't use perfume as much. Only during special occasions and if I have no choice at all LOL I only use unscented lotion.

I believe people should not really rely on perfumes and scents. As long as you keep yourself clean with the aid of the right deodorant, you can definitely be fresh all day. I believe that Eau de toulette is apecially made for special occassions or when you feel down. It's something like chocolate that can uplift ur spirit...

I use perfume because my body skin is sensitive and I can't really use any body lotions or shower gels that contains "fragrance". Therefore I have to rely on my perfume. I used to buy 2-3 perfumes and use them according to different moods that I have. But now, I think I discover my own signature perfume that I love the most. I indeed plan on to get a large one once I use up the two perfumes that I got now. My favourite is Givenchy Amarige. It's really amazing scented and it's very long-lasting too. I put it on and when people talk to me, they all go, "wow, you smell so NICE!". I was totally amazed that one time one person even said that after 6 hours of me putting that perfume on.

Most of the time I use colognes to smell good. Perfumes are too expensive so I use it sparingly. My favorite cologne brand is from Victoria's secret. They have a wide array of scents to choose from and the smell lasts longer than the others. It's just that in my country it is too expensive compared to local brands. I am for variety so I don't stick to one kind of brand or scent. I usually keep three or more different kind of colognes and scent to match my mood.

I use perfume to smell good. I love perfume. My favorite perfume is Victorias Secret garden collection. I have every scent, but my favorite is My Desire. I also like Avon perfume, just about all of those smell pretty good. I have a huge collection of different perfumes, lets just say that I could wear a different scent everyday of the year.

I don't like regular perfumes, they give me a headache. When I really want to smell good I use my Merry Xmas massage bar from Lush (it's become one of my signature scents). It moisturizes my skin and leaves me smelling absolutely delicious, like a combo of whitechocolate/oranges/cinnamon. And the scent lasts all day, I can still smell it for hours after a perfume would have worn off.
