What are your favorite perfumes/body mists?

My go-to is Coco Mademoiselle. I've also harbored a longtime attachment to Love's Baby Soft as it was my first fragrance I was bought as a child. My mom got me Wind Song when I was little and I couldn't stand the smell. I've wanted to experiment with making my own perfume. The scent that I hate the most is freesia and I can't believe how much its used in fragrances.

Has anyone tried the Sailor Moon perfumes? Much of their anniversary merch seems to be all hype.

No. 72092

Man my taste in scents is super weird. I love CDG's Avignon, Chypre Mousse, Masque Milano's Russian Tea, Penhaligon's English Fern and Lily of the Valley, lots of woodsy/grassy/chypre scents that aren't necessarily everyone's cup of tea. They're usually expensive as fuck to boot, I'd love to find a cheap scent that isn't too widespread or sugary sweet/babby's first perfume, but everything that's mainstream right now is kind of samey to my nose and too saccharine or cloying.

I must be broken or something, my bf loves typical girly scents and I smell of either eau de Mother Superior or mosquito repellent, there's no third option.

No. 72094

You're not alone in that regard. Mature scents can be really nice.

On topic: My boyfriend got this for me along with their red rose scent.


I really like it. It smells like kind of a sweet, lemon pound cake. The rose one is certainly very rosy and the staying power is fantastic.

I have so many perfumes that I wanna buy full-size so I can have them forever smelling amazing and looking all pretty on my shelves and stuff but I’m kind of worried about expiration. Some say perfumes only live for like 5 years while others say they live forever. I wanna get the Viva La Juicy and Victoria Secret perfumes but I’m so scared it will be a waste of money and they expire before I have the chance to even get through a quarter of the bottle. :(

What do you anons think?

Perfumes can last indefinitely depending on quality and storage. Keeping them in a cool dark place will help them last, I have a cheap bottle of almost 20 year old Baby Soft that's still good because I've kept it in a dresser drawer, but a bottle of tokyomilk perfume went bad quickly when it was exposed to the sun on a shelf.
As for a favorite perfume, I can't get enough of Chanel no 5.

Me too haha. I love the packaging mostly. I just recently got Sucre, and it smells like the original but with a slightly sweeter tone to it.

I have Oud Sahara from this line and it smells amazing. It's a very rich, strong incense-like scent that doesn't smell like unwashed hippie.

My winter fragrance of late has been Tocca Cleopatra. I never really wore it until the cooler months because i've been wearing Marc Jacobs Honey for so long but I wanted something more season appropriate. It's very light but smells more refined and sultry and I think it has changed my taste in perfumes because now i'm looking for a nice floral for spring/summer that isn't quite so…basic…like the Marc Jacobs perfumes. I always gravitated towards Marc Jacobs fragrances because they're very light but I find them really underwhelming in terms of longevity and uniqueness. I hear really good things about flowerbomb hair mist so I might try that one or a different Tocca fragrance.

Anon, if you love weird or rarely found in mainstream scents, this is your holy grail. I'm a woody/leather/earthy gal, there was never a lot of choice for me in lady perfumes and men's are often too harsh on my nose, so I went for this. Overall I'm really impressed with them, got myself Paperback and Espresso for a try, couldn't be happier. They last all day on me, but I've heard it depends on the scent and your skin. I was overwhelmed at their store as well, I was literally smelling everything for an hour, lol
If you can't try them on irl, then I'd suggest you pick a combination that's kinda safe and basic and see if you even like the mono-scents. Also they have this online quizz stuff where they pick two scents for you based on your preferences and personality, idk how good it is, but it'll cost a bit more. May be a fair starting point for you, if you're completely lost.
Also the similar scents you're confused about vary either in sweetness or fullness, likeee their Earthworm is just a wetter version of Dirt, Espresso is a tad sweeter version of Black coffee and so on, their pine scents come in range from the "manlier" ones to the sweet ones. They ofthen state such stuff in the descriptions and it matches reality quite well. Imo if you're sure you like the scent and can stand occasional sweetness, you won't be dissapointed with its different version.

Roberto Cavalli Paradiso! (jasmine, citruses)

It's heavy, strong and stays long on clothes (I love wrapping myself in my scarf and smelling this delicate scent from fucking weaks ago), exactly how I like it, lol. My friend who uses those watery stawberry perfumes and stuff hates it, people on sites label it as "for going out", but I love to wear it daily. It's expensive (for me) so I usually use very little.

Have you smelled Glossier You? I've never smelled the scents you listed here so I'm not sure if it's similar to any, but You is extremely fresh/clean smelling without smelling like laundry detergent. It's not floral/powdery at all.

It's very subtle and almost just smells like fresh out of the shower skin. Not sure if this sounds appealing to you but I recommend it to everyone at this point because I'm OBSESSED. It runs for $60, which I think is relatively affordable for a perfume.

Daisy was my go-to every day for the past 2 or 3 years — I got a giant bottle of it complete with matching lotion and shower gel for Christmas all those years ago. To this day it's the only perfume to not give me a headache, and I'd get compliments on it constantly. My bf would bury his face in my neck and say I smelled "intoxicating" whenever I wore it — which wasn't often, because I was already running way low on it when he and I met.

It smells so strong and disgusting when you first spray it, really fit the idea you might have of a 80s perfume, overpowering and not well balanced.
But once it settles down, the powderiness almost completely disappear and let place to a more rounded and creamy baby powder smell, very comfy and seductive. It's inspired by Louise Brooks so it has a sweet naughtiness kinda vibes.

On this note, let me get out my soap box.

I like smelling like coconut body oil, pineapple leave in conditioner, and peach body mist. I know I sound like a preteen in 2006 or a pina colada. Idgaf what others think, it smells delicious to me. It’s weird how people get so offended/concerned/confused when you don’t use or like regular perfume as a grown woman. Then there’s people who get offended when others use it! And those who belittle anyone who doesn’t use essential oils or those who say essential oils are for smelly hippies.

As long as someone doesn’t smell nasty or overpowering, who cares? It’s such a personal thing, everyone’s going to have different tastes: that’s why the market is so saturated. I don’t personally like floral smells but I’m not going to insult people who do. Different strokes. Wear whatever smell makes you happy and you feel represents you. Obviously some smells are off putting, like stale cigarettes or body odor. Encouraging good hygiene and stopping people from bathin in a smell, sure, worthy cause. We all have Axe middle school flashbacks. But being elitist about brand or type is just a lil silly to me.

Ok soap box put away.

Be careful if you buy the ultime concentrations to not put too much on, or people WILL be able to smell you from feet away and it really does last all day. The longevity is incredible.

Try not to put purfume directly on your skin all the time. Perfume is mostly alcohol and it can age and dry your skin up quicker. Try putting it on your wrists or clothes over putting it on your neck to avoid early aging.

I love niche fragrance but I've gotten way more compliment wearing some cheapass vanilla or coconut EDT than my expensive Serge Lutens or some old fragrance my grandma gave me. People like you to smell super basic and sweet (when they don't just prefer the smell of clean bare skin), complicated niche fragrances or "refined" fragrances can actually be quite repulsive to a regular person.

I love my body shop vanilla perfume. Sweet smells are my kryptonite honestly, I don't even care what other people think because I enjoy smelling it on myself. I almost always prefer cheap perfume because I can get tacky food based scents like cotton candy or apple or 'marshmallow' (it's just musk).

Pic related is my fucking fave.

No. 82321

I get what you're saying but I think we should care about what we smell like, mainly out of politeness. I have a jasmine fragrance that I adore, sadly it's a note that can be very reminiscent of cat pee to many people so I won't wear my jasmine if I know I have to spend the day very close to other people, I also won't wear my angel muse powerbomb if I have to be in a closed space with other people either. I don't want to be known as "that girl who wear too much fragrances".

No. 82322

Well, you're right but I don't use much so I don't actually think anyone can smell me unless they get right up in my space (which barely ever happens), and I don't think it smells harsh or offensive to begin with either. I was more imagining that people might think it childish or unrefined or something for an adult to wear scents like that.

I had no idea jasmine smells like cat pee to people, is that just exclusive to perfumes? I have jasmine in my yard and it smells beautiful.

No. 82326

Jasmine and white flowers in general have a poopy or cat pee smell it's due to the indole molecule naturally present in those flowers, the thing is it's also present in… Human intestines.
I personally love white florals but you can see people complaining about the pungent smell quite a lot in fragrances forums so it made me a little insecure lmao.

My current fav from Lush, currently trumps Dirty being my everyday scent. Description on the packaging is accurate. It's very long lasting and one spray is enough or it'll knock yourself and everyone in proximity to you out. Shit packaging and looks like Windex but does the job. I'm also sad they've changed the packaging to their Gorilla Perfumes, they used to have really nice illustrations on them and colourful. Now they have plain ass stickers.

I've gotten into indie brands in recent years because you get such interesting scents that way. My boyfriend and I got oils from a local shop Thorn and Moon, find them on etsy. I am currently in love with their Eden smell. I don't see it on their shop listing anymore, which is a shame. It's dark florals and red apple, the apple being the sort of after-smell that really settles in. This 'Alkemia' site recommended earlier in the thread has everything I like, so I'm definitely going to be getting some of their stuff. Finding a good rose perfume is a multi-year endeavor for me.

Beginner tips?

I've never been girly or very feminine but I always secretly wanted to be. So I'm trying to ease into that sort of thing. A scent seems like a nice subtle way to do so.
But I know nothing about this. And to be honest, I think my senses of taste and smell are a bit off (thanks bulimia), so I don't have much confidence in my ability to choose one on my own.

I love this one too. It's kind of basic bitch but the perfume is amazing so it's okay.
Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel smells almost exactly like it IMO.

I really love fresh and floral scents with a select few sweet fragrances. A few months ago I discovered Maison Margiela's Tea Escape and I love it so much. I love tea and it smells like some of my favorites- jasmine and a slightly sweet green tea. That shit is $126 a bottle though, and I already have several other scents I need to get through. Last week I was on vacation and found an almost perfect dupe Panier des Sens Jasmin Precieux. I got a small vial for like $7 and the full bottle is only $40.

Go to the store and smell stuff. If you smell the following, you'll get a good sample of the different genres that are available:

Dolce & Gabanna Light Blue - fresh citrusy summery.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - sophisticated yet flirty floral. Autumnal.
Dior Poison Girl - sweet candy like.
Dior Blooming Bouquet - ethereal floral. Soft and pretty. Spring.
YSL Mon Paris - sparkling fruit punch.
YSL Black Opium - sweet dark and sexy. Wintery.

These are all expensive but you can use them as references.

In theory EDT project more but last least and EDP last more with less projection.

In reality it varies from one fragrance to another, the only way to really know which one you prefer is to spray each version on one of your wrist and see and compare how it performs. Sometimes the scent can also be dramatically different from the EDT to the EDP, ex; philosykos by diptyque EDT smells amazing to me, but I hate the EDP.
It happens that a cologne or EDT performs better than a an EDP you have to sample a lot to find out which ones.

I'm a huge perfume pleb right now and I really like Versace Red Jeans. That Katy Perry Killer Queen one is one relatives tend to buy me as a gift a lot and I like that one too, although I like Red Jeans better. When I'm out of uni and actually have money I'll probably try out some fancier stuff.

I have a major nostalgic soft spot for the Gwen Stefani gothic lolita and visual kei weeb perfumes that had the dolls on top from years ago.

Right now I'm trying to work my way through some perfumes I got as gifts years ago that I've had for ages (throwing out gifts rustles the jimmies of my inner hoarder). There's one super floral one called Orient by nSpa that smells really good, then there's an agreeably generic one with a Glee logo on it that I'm not sure why I even own since I never liked Glee and finally a Forever Friends perfume my grandma got me that's the most sickly sweet scent I've ever smelled. Working my way through the Forever Friends one at the moment since it's the worst of the 3 and I won't really be getting up close and personal with anyone for another 1-2 months so even if I don't like the scent so much it's no big deal.

Diptyque's L'Ombre Dans L'Eau is my favorite fragrance and is massively underrated. The eau de toilette in particular. I don't like the eau de parfum version as much. It smells like an entire rose garden, petals, stems, leaves, and all.

philosykos by diptyque is the nicest niche perfume I've ever smelled, it's really unique but not in a "yikes what's that smell??" way, it's very fresh and cozy.

I prefer simpler scents. It's nice to walk into Jo Malone and know what I would be smelling before I pick it up. That being said, I'm broke, but this fragrance is my jam. It's nice to have a more earthy scent whilst still being light and femme.
If you like this, I recommend their 'Gardeners' range, though they don't have a fragrance for it, just body lotions and the like.

My mum loves it too, so I let her know they're on sale right now.

I started buying Swiss Arabian products, most smell really high end for the price. Many also come in very beautiful bottles like pic related. The one in pic has a really light, soapy smell according to my mother. Their women's line of products tend to be more "matronly" in smell, ie very natural floral scents, and not alcoholic smelling since they are oil. The alcohol based scents are incredibly strong and will last a few days on clothing. I got a sample of Attar Al Ghutra and it hands down has to be my favorite, can't afford to get a full bottle though because I opted on getting a ton of cheaper scents instead.

I just bought Far Away. The bottle itself smells nice, but when you spray it, it reeks of that cheap alcohol smell. I bought the infinity version as well, and I personally prefer it over the pink bottle.

No. 119052

wtf is wrong with you?

No. 119082

Ooo, tell me more, anon. I've never liked buying women's perfume because it feels like a waste of money. The scents I like tend to only last a couple of hours, then it's gone. Plus, the alcohol in them is trash too. I checked out the Swiss Arabian website and am considering ordering a sample. Would you recommend the concentrated oil or the eau de parfum spray?

No. 119092

I unironically like rue21 perfumes and body fantasy, I grew up poor but imo I still rather it over Chanel and Gucci and all that

No. 119093

The sprays definitely have a more intense smell that lasts longer; I'd recommend the oil for people who are more sensitive to strong smells. It also really depends on the particular scent you get with them. Almost all of them are strong and long lasting, but some definitely smell better than others as far as quality goes. Some of the more masculine scents like their ouds have that alcohol smell you might not like. It also depends on the kind of smells you like. The oils tend to be more floral; the sprays tend to have sandalwood. The oils are also cheaper and tend to be the ones that come in the fancy bottles.

I'm also like you, I found perfume to be a waste of money, but I kind of fell in love with these. I'm extremely sensitive to smells, especially chemical ones, and even get nauseous or close to fainting at the smell of my mom's perfumes or nail polish. I haven't had a problem so far with this brand, even though the smells are as intense as the kind of things that make me feel unwell.

No. 119096

The oil sounds perfect for me, then. I just have zero experience with using a perfume oil. I would certainly be interested in trying the one you posted. Do you think one of those mall discount perfume stores might have some? Where do get them from or do you order online?

No. 119118

I order mine online, I got mine off of eBay because I was able to find it cheaper, but Etsy also sells them. This store I buy from gives you a huge box of Swiss Arabian samples if you buy their scarfs too, so you can see if you like them and which ones you want to buy.

And honestly it all depends on the type of smells do you like, indie brands for more unique out of the wall stuff or classic luxury brands for well classic perfumes.

A good quality perfume sadly can get a bit pricey, so the rule of thumb is that if it looks too good to be true avoid it.

I second this, frantagica has everything you need to know about perfumes. If there's any you like, you can look it up and read what notes it has and other perfumes similiar to it. Or you can search by type or notes if you know there's something you like.

If you have 100% no clue I would just browse frantagica for a while and make a short list of a few scents you think you might enjoy and then sample them at the drugstore/perfumery when you can.

I found that the same perfume can smell completely different on me at different times…can anyone relate to this?

For example, I used to wear Hypnose by Lancome and sometimes it came off as sweet and vanilla-ish and other times it smelled completely bitter and dusty. I had to stop wearing it because I never knew what it would end up smelling like.

tbh there aren't many chocolate perfumes anymore

The reformulation of the XS line basically nuked the cocoa notes, it smells like rotten incense and whisky to me now.

Hey! I went out to sephora and bought it just because of this post and your description is spot on! I'm not going to lie, when I smelled it in the package it smelled great. When I initially sprayed it something smelled really off and it took a minute for it to go away but when it did, FABULOUS. I want to fucking bathe in it and have someone kiss my delicious smelling body all over.

Side note. Is there a way you should apply roller perfume? Is it just on the wrists and neck. Sometimes I feel like others can't smell it because you can't spray it on your clothes.

This post reminds me of how I wore Britney Spears Fantasy everyday during my depressed high school days. I ended up with 3 bottles over one Christmas and this perfume became my replacement for showering. Now I have matured to a plain vanilla scent from Body Shop.

call me a basic b*tch but I really love Pink by VS.

Even in middle school, I was obsessed. Something about its cotton candy link fragrance fills me with nostalgia.

I think the adult version of that would be Viva la Juicy.

Dzing! is one of my all time, close to my heart perfumes.

It's supposedly inspired by the circus and has a kind of funky animalistic quality, but I remember when I got a sample, it really hit me in a way perfumes never did. Like this shit spoke to me.

I am glad I took a chance on a fragrance that gets a lot of divisive reviews. I think it's beautiful, and there's really nothing like it, and I've smelled a lot.

Favourite perfume hands down. Limited edition unfortunately, so very little stock around and it’s increasing in price. Smells sweet and fruity, without being sickly. Pomegranate and red mandarin apparently, I don’t know but it’s incredible.

Is Black Opium by YSL considered a basic bitch scent?

No. 145085

Is it bad that I don't get wearing "experimental" perfumes like this? I mean, sure a scent is for my own enjoyment first and foremost, but I don't want to potentionally smell nasty to someone else at the same time. So I get something that I love but will also be generally liked (or at least not disliked) by people around me smelling it.

The Bug or Assassin perfume by Lush/Gorilla Perfumes. The Bug is peppercorn and galbanum (a green, astringent, and vibrant scent) with a finish of sandalwood. Assassin has a base of vanilla and oak moss, with notes of neroli, blackcurrant, pine and lime. These both probably sound weird especially seeing so many fruity perfumes but I love things that smell the way nature feels, even if it’s not everyone’s taste in scent profile. I’d do a lot to be able to have a full bottle of each fresh and not from respectively 2016/2004 when the scent is probably off from as it was intended. They made products with the Assassin scent recently, but haven’t made anything with The Bug scent except a bath bomb 4 years ago.

a boy i didn't like bought me this for my birthday in sixth grade, and i hated him, but holy shit this smelled so good. i used it all the time for two years. i had never had any type of perfume before and didn't know how subtle to be so i'd spray myself five or six times before dates. once i went on a date and while my bf's parents drove us to the movies they kept saying how good i smelled and i felt really complimented without realizing they were probably trying not to say "holy shit girl relax i can barely breathe". it's britney spears' first perfume. i looked it up and apparently the top note is MAGNOLIA. any recs for magnolia-heavy perfumes for adults lol?

im pretty sure you can still get most of the britney perfumes.
For me it was curious, in control. I bought it in duty free on the way to the school ski trip. I bought a bottle recently, it was very out of date but it took me right back.

I've received more compliments wearing cheap ass celeb perfumes than when wearing expensive designer ones.. Especially Jlo Miami Glow and Christina Aguilera Signature.

I have the Bleu de Chanel cologne because I love how it smells, but I have a problem where it just… doesn't really smell or last for some reason. If I put on one spritz on the side of my neck, the smell dissipates to almost nothing in an hour or two. If I put on enough for me to smell it longer, then it's just too overwhelming for myself and everyone around me. Whenever I pass by men who wear it, the smell will waft to me even if they aren't too close when they walk past me. Feels like a waste but I might just put a spritz on my shirt or something so the smell will linger a little longer since it doesn't seem to last at all on my skin lol (but I don't have BO either so I don't know if that plays a role either).

A coworker of mine gave me a free sample of Chanel No 5 that she got and I loooove it so much but I'm hesitant to buy it for the same reasons as above (received the Bleu as a gift).

Do any of you wear a perfume for men?
I do wear the one in the pic(sometimes) because I LOOOOVE how it smells and it is so long lasting. I know its a basic-bitch one and cheap but idc. It's sexy af.

I wear Fahrenheit by Dior. Only a little spritz because it's so strong, but I love leather based scents and it really hits the mark. Lasts ages on my skin too which is always a bonus! I also like Drakkar Noir, which I know is an old man's cologne, but it smells so good.

I love a lot of difficult perfumes, but I also don't want to scare people. I save my experimentals and French vintages for when I'll be home all day, going somewhere low-traffic, or going to be around other perfume fans. Pic related. Modern Love is a fave, but it's also olfactory sexual harassment.

I'm very new to perfumes but I know that I like the scent of Japanese cherry blossom strawberry kiss from the body shop, but I'm a bit unsatisfied with how short-lasting it feels. What are some alternatives that are more longer lasting but retain the same sorta smell and are still relatively inexpensive? Is Gres Parfums Cabotine Rose a good alternative?

My most recent perfume is this one which is such a nice blend between a bit spicy but floral without being too much. I also really like Alien and Hugo Boss Deep Red. I have one perfume that's just straight up for men as well because honestly a lot of men's perfumes smell better to me overall. Any good recommendations for other scents that have nice spice/woodiness to them with just the right sweetness to them?

Le Parfum de Therese by Frederic Malle is truly the best thing I've ever smelled, I wear it daily. At night I like to spray vintage Femme de Rochas and the scent is still there by morning and I layer PdT over it. also has a really beautiful story behind it

some of my other favorites are Guerlain Mitsouko, and Samsara when I want to feel more cozy

No. 148653

It's so worth it for the quality of the ingredients! You just can't find a true dupe for these fragrances. I know the price point is crazy but I don't drink or eat out at a lot of restaurants, so I feel in a few months I can make up for a $300 perfume purchase that lasts me a year or two by budgeting in other places. But maybe that's just how I cope with my addiction to this scent!!

yeah, i’ve tried to find a carnal flower dupe but it’s impossible haha. i think the closest i got was a tom ford fragrance so that’s not really much of a dupe!

the nicest perfume i have is serge lutens’ la fille de berlin. i love the plummy, rich notes; it’s perfect for winter. i usually wear light florals but there’s something about this one that is so lovely. i love his other fragrances too, they’re so beautiful

No. 148678

Yes yes yes! Good taste anon. I've been dying for this one in particular, I smelled it at a Frederic Malle event at Barneys and I've been craving it ever since! Think I'll at least buy a decant and then decide if there's a place for it in my scent wardrobe. And I've read interviews from FM where he talks about the tuberose they use being insanely expensive, like $20,000/kg which is why no one is really duping it! they just couldn't afford to make it at a price lower than what they sell it for

Not sure if this is what you’re looking for but I have a solid of vanillary by lush! I have never used other lush perfumes (and really haven’t used a solid perfume since middle school) but I bought it for travel purposes pre pandemic and I love it! It’s a real ode to vanilla and I recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of the note like me but is bored with it as it is in mass market gourmands nowadays.

Also, anyone who’s found a fragrance with a prominent tobacco note that isn’t the typical cigars and bourbon fare for guys (esp bc I hate bourbon… why is that one of the only notes that is almost always purely realistic smh) I love TF tobacco Vanille but it’s out of my budget atm and am looking to find options that don’t break the bank!
