I know people love perfume for many reasons. As for me, I love the brand itself, the brand image. Stunning body design and last the smell. I accept both light and strong fragrance, but only limited to certain brands. I think each brand suits different groups of people. Like Hugo Boss, quite sporty; Lacoste crocodile, good choice for mature gentleman but not young people, I personlly believe. So what's your attitude towards perfume choice ?

I actually love a perfume brand because of its scent.the name comes secondary.though most of my favorite scents are designer brands,I loved them because of their scent and not really of the brands.I love Escada Rockin' Rio,Britney Spears' Curious,and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea.

..usually, I buy perfumes because of its smell.. It doesn't matter if its branded or not.. the important thing for me is the smell.. Others I know buy perfume basing from the brand.. but I don't agree with them.. It doesn't matter if the perfume if expensive but it doesn't smell good..

you are right there, but don't you notice that brand perfume often lasts longer and smells nicer? thanks

Magic, that's not the case. it depends on your skin and the notes in the perfume. I buy a lot of perfume oils from a small company. (and the smells are amazing) Chanel number 5, despite having all the sort of notes that usually last on my skin, I actually can't smell anymore after less than half an hour. one of my Black Phoenix perfumes lasts about 4 days on my skin. including baths and swimming during that time.

well, of course, both reason are important for me, because the brand endorse the perfume.. i prefer citric smells, or fresh smell, makes me more relaxx. i really like flower by kenzo, 212 sexy by carolina herrera and ange ou demon by givenchy.. i wish u havr a nice day!

Hi, magic9. I love a perfume because of its smell. Sometimes the brand name does not have to make a huge difference. I can buy perfume that costs one dollar and it smells just as expensive than the higher priced brand. I love any of my perfume to smell nice and lovely with passion.

I don't care the brand of the perfume, but I care on the smell. When I buy a new perfume, I should smell it, if I like the smell, I will buy it. If the brand is famous, but I don't like the smell, I will not buy it. Happy mylotting!

I get a perfume for its smell. I too look at the brand but that comes next to smell. I too love Hugo Boss and Tommy Girl.

I rarely use perfume. Anyways, I love perfumes because of its smell. Although brand is also important, I go more for the smell. I don't wear any strong perfumes, I go for more relaxing, soothing, cool smell. I usually buy customized perfumes in malls. They are not so expensive, but you've got freely choose what smell you want (more like personalized perfume).

I do love perfume because of its smell and brand. It's very unpropriatable when you have a perfume having a nice fragrance, then, never heard BRAND.. LOL... It must be both!

I used to love colognes and perfumes. While at school, I liked Nenuco and Angel's Breath. It was really refreshing and smelled really nice. But ever since my first pregnancy, I had an averse reaction to any, I mean any scent. Even after I gave birth, I never wore any perfume since then. Now I'm trying to wear a little cologne to accustom myself again :)

i don't love perfume at all.. i really don't like it.. i am highly alergic to the highly smelling things... and perfumes being one of them.. but this allergy has developed recently.. earlier it used to be easy for me to chose light smelling perfumes.. but now i can't bear that too even.
