Good day everyone I hope you all had a lovely day! i did! I do love scents and i can't go out without it, though there are times that i would just be plain me.Most of the days i prefer wearing colognes w/ light sweet smell (i wear baby colognes too), i like the sweet ones.I only wear perfumes during special occasions for the long lasting scents. I like vitorias secrets or bath and body products, and zwitsal too... How about you guys, which do you prefer? Or you don't wear any of it at all? Do share your favorite pls. Thanks in advance.

I prefere body spray over perfume, because I find the certain perfumes are way too strong and give me a headache, but I have never gotten a headache from a body spray, My favorite brand is Calgona and my favorite scent is Mmmmm Marshmallow, I wear it almost everyday.

I always wear perfume, well since christmas anyway, as I was really lucky and got 6 bottles of it for christmas. It is good having a few because I do not stick with one scent, I get fed up of it really quickly so this way I get a different scent everday. I just hope they last me now until my birthday in June and then hope that I am lucky enough to get some more!

Well, I'm a girl and love to wear Vanilla Musk by Coty. It's one of those long lasting perfumes you mentioned but mmm the smell is soooo good! I usually don;t wear anything else. My boyfriend wears a cologne by Jovan I think it is. I don;t know the name of it, but I love to sniff his neck when he does. I'm glad he knows how ti use it though as some guys bathe themselves in cologne. That's just a turn off!

Glad to hear you had a lovely day - I did too! I love scent too, and wear it every day. I always use cologne as it's lighter than perfume, but sometimes I will wear perfume if I am going out for the evening. My favourite is Obsession and Christian Dior, both of which I have used for years. I have tried ohters, but keep going back to these two! I don't like sweet smelling colognes; I like the musk ones.

I do prefer cologne or body spray. I think it is good to wear something than nothing. Most times having some good cologne gives a pleasant atomsphere and also prevent body odors. Now a days lots of perfumes are available and in different smells. I also like the smell of fruits perfumes. Pineapple smelling perfume is one of my favorite.

I prefer wearing baby scents and those fresh scents, I seldom use strong perfume coz I dont really find it appealing to my senses.I like the baby scent of the white switzal baby colognes which I look forward to when they are on sale. Its good to buy thes colognes while they are on sale coz its really almost 50% cheaper than the regular size and enjoy the 300 ml size and almost bath it all over my body. Have a nice day and God bless.

Sometimes i don't want both. I want to be fresh even without both. There are perfumes that leaves itchy feeling on my skin so i don't use it. Cologne on the other hand have been diluted to water so it don't harm any skin but the smell do not stay for long so i find it nonsense to have it. But i prefer perfume with sweet scents.

i don't usually wear colognes or perfume...its not that i don't like it but it just i'm not used to it. Yes i do buy colognes and perfume but i use it only if there is special occasions or if i remembered that i have colognes.. I like the fruity scented colognes and the not so strong perfumes..the feminine scent...

for everyday wear, i prefer using colognes and body spray. right now im loving the smell of cucumber burst by plains and prints. there's one like this from bath and body but p&p are much cheaper. my friends and a lot of people seem to appreciate the smell.. they'd be sniffing over and over each time i use it. and for especial occasions, i use my clinique happy perfume. it just a classic and a lot of people just loves its scent.

I like perfume on me and cologne on my man. My favorite is still White Diamonds, By: Elizabeth Taylor. I also like Lovely by: Jessica Parker. I believe she is the one who put this out. I think that Ralph Laren is the one who makes the Romance Cologne for men, that I like so much.

Cologne is a lighter, less potent, therefore a less expensive form of perfume which has a more concentrated amount of the ingredients of the notes of the scent. I usually get the cologne because I want to have more choices of scents to wear. I also try to wear a body cream. Neither will help with body odor unless the person puts so much on to cover it up and then it becomes overwhelming to the people around them. If you wear the same fragrance often you become sensitized to it and your olfactrory nerves cannot detecet it after you have applied it and it is dry. So if you cannot smell it after a few days that you are wearing it be cautious in not over applying it as the people that are around you have not become desensitized to it and can only stand so much perfume on others. Some scents can cause others to become nauseated or suffer headaches. If you are working with others or in constant contact with others who do not have the choice to leave, and let you know that your perfume is making them ill, please believe them. Sometimes the best way to apply a scent is to spray in front of you and walk into the mist, or dab a tiny bit on pulse points, cleavage, back of the knees, the neck, etc.

I prefer perfume before. I was greatly influenced by my father since he had a lot as part of his collection. I find it alright. Currently, I use a body spray to give me cool and good smell daily. I like it very much.

At first, I didn't use cologne much. I thought it make me become laughing-stock in crowded. Then I think maybe it make me more attractive. But I don't use too much. I don't want to become addicted to cologne.

For everyday wear I much prefer using light smell colognes like Victoria Secret as it only stay for a couple of hours, but I colognes I can spray every now and then. I also only wear perfumes during special occassion like going to church, dates, meetings and interviews as they stay long.

I do not wear them daliy, but 4 occasions i do wear perfumes ,if little distance ones i ll go with deos. I would have severe head ache with vomitting sensations if i wear any perfume, so i do not go with them always xcept when its necessary. I would daily use scented soaps.

I would love to be able to wear perfumes etc but I unforntunately am unable to wear any type of cologne or perfume due to the fact that whenever I have worn them in the past all I seem to do is sneeze until I get rid of the smell. Even when I come into contact with anyone who oversprays it I have to stay away from them even if they are my best friend.
