Do Tell: What is your signature fragrance?

I love getting to know you all and have been thinking it would be fun to have some super-interactive posts. A couple of weeks ago, I began a new series called “Do Tell” in which I pose one question in hopes that you’ll share your own personal answers. This week’s question: What is your signature fragrance?

  1. What a fun idea for a post! I’m inspired!
    I love this question most because fragrance is my ultimate indulgence.
    My scents change with the seasons…

    WINTER: Amarige by Givenchy
    SPRING/SUMMER: Michael Kors (my most signature)
    FALL: Flowerbomb by V+W

  2. My signature fragrance in the fall/winter is Dior’s Hyponotique Poison and in the spring/summer, Chanel’s Allure. Love love love!

  3. My signature fragrance is Thierry Mugler’s Angel. All my friends say when they smell it when they are out and about they immediately think of me.

  4. Burberry Brit and China Rain although everyone tells me I smell like dryer sheets (probably because I use entirely too many). I’d mix in a little baby spit up at the moment as well. I used to work in fragrance development for Calvin Klein so this topic fascinates me!

  5. My signature scent is Boucheron. My husband and I got it in Paris at the fabulous store in Place Vendome. It is so quintessentially Paris!

  6. Hm, though I love to branch out and try new scents, especially boutique perfumers, I’ve had a steady relationship with Chanel No5 “Eau Premiere” over the last coupe years– it’s a lighter take on the classic No5 but it has a distinct depth and bite to it.
    As for my edgy, more out there preference, I’d have to say Editions de Parfum’s “Lipstick Rose” — it’s fab.

    Spritz-spritz, Alcira

  7. I love to layer Chanel No. 5 year-round – shower gel, lotion and perfume. But, for special occasions I whip out the Eau de Joy by Jean Patou.

    Both, very old school, I now realize.

  8. I love my collection of perfumes!

    -Everyday(casual feeling) Perfume: Heavenly by Victoria Secret
    -Night Time Perfume: Sexy Little Things by Victoria Secret
    -Everday(chic feeling)Perfume: Oscar by Oscar De La Renta

  9. Depends on the season…

    Fall/Winter: London by Burberry
    Spring: Believe it or not, I wear Can Can by Paris Hilton
    Summer: Bath & Body Works Honeysuckle body splash is wonderful

  10. 30 years ago I smelled Oscar on a flight attendant and LOVED it…then my Hubs bought me Chanel No 5 ten years ago, but while in Paris last year I found Escada in a skinny raspberry bottle and I’ve been in heaven ever since…I don’t stray much from those 3..

  11. I alternate between Tiffany by Tiffany (duh!) for Fall/Winter and Quelques Fleurs by Houbigant for Spring/Summer. I’ve found that men love both. 🙂

  12. I love reading everyone’s favs! I am tacky I guess… I love bath and body works aromatherapy lavender- vanilla body spray! I have used it for about 6 years and can’t seem to stop. I try to change and before you know it, I am spraying it on again…

    For special occasions I class it up and mix it with kate spade new york Twirl. lol!

  13. I don’t really wear perfume any more…instead I use Philosphy Amazing Grace body wash and lotion. I LOVE how it smells and I have people ask me once a week what I’m wearing. So light and feminine. I ought to look into a going-out scent though!

  14. Since I can’t stick to just ONE I have a few I always purchase when the bottle runs empty, but during the winter months I seem to favour Samsara. I love the heavy, rich, exotic scent that seems to go so well with the season. Men stop me all the time and ask me what I’m wearing. Men!

  15. I’ve been wearing Ralph Lauren Romance for about 6 years now and don’t know if I will ever love anything as much! Sometimes I start to wonder if I need a new signature but always remember you can’t go wrong with a classic.

  16. Indian Coconut Nectar by Pacifica Pefumes, burberry brit, rosewood by banana republic and lolita lempicka. I pick which fragrance i use depending on my mood and location.

  17. I’ve worn Stella by Stella McCartney for almost 8 years…bought it as my “wedding fragrance” and never stopped spritzing! I also wear Stella by Tocca on occasion.

  18. My signature fragrance is Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan, definitely my favorite year-round, and I get lots of compliments! I have the shower gel, body cream and perfume. I also love Ysatis by Givency which I’ve been wearing for about 25 years.

  19. I wear Carmen (Victorio & Lucchino) The bottle is as beautiful as the fragrance.

    Ellen Tracy for everyday.

    And Fath de Fath for evening.

    I really enjoyed reading about everyone elses favorites. Some I’m really looking forward to smelling! Vanna

  20. Philosophy Unconditional Love body wash & lotion. It’s not as overwhelming to me as perfume can be and also doesn’t change on me throughout the day (I problem I’ve found with perfumes). I’ve had women ask me what I’m wearing and my brother -in-law said that his hat smelled like Debbie after he left it on top of my jacket.

  21. Love this!
    I love Kiehls Original Musk for all seasons and I also wear:
    Fall/Winter: Tom Ford White Patchouli for evening
    Spring/Summer: Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey and Antonia’s Flowers

  22. Interesting read! My faves depend on my mood but these are my most go-to perfumes:
    Annick Goutal – Eau d’Hadrien & Mandragore
    D&G – Light Blue
    Carthusia Mediterraneo

  23. Love this series….I have worn Chanel’s Chance for several years. Chanel No 5 is a sentimental scent for Mom gave it to me when I was a young girl. ~CJ

  24. Ever since I was 16, I’ve worn Samsara by Guerlain. It’s sensual, spicy and easy on the nose for everyone. I’ve had complete strangers ask what I wear and I’m still proud to wear it today.

  25. I’ve always been a Bulgari girl but lately I’ve explored other fragrances! What I’m currently using:

    – Balenciaga Paris
    – Jo Malone Limited Ed. Sakura Cherry Blossom
    – Bulgari Voile de Jasmine

    When i got married, this was what I used:
    – Annick Goutal Au d’Hadrien
