    I do, when I remember. I currently wear Michael Kors most regularly. I try to make sure I don’t overdo it. I like it when others wear perfume/cologne, as long as it isn’t overpowering.

    I do. Just a few squirts of mild perfumes though. I’m very sensitive and lots of them give me a migraine for hours.

    @cbgg:  I love perfume and wear it almost every day. I also notice when others smell nice. However, when I worked on the ward I didn’t wear it because one day a mother mentioned her baby smelled of me… And that made me sad because her baby should smell of her!! But now I work in the community I hold / have hands on care with babies a lot less

    My favourites are DKNY be delicious and Ralph (Ralph Lauren)

    No, because SO hates perfume. I will wear it now and then because I do like it, but the last thing I want is for my man to think I stink. I do use scented moisturizer. He can deal with that as long as it isn’t freshly applied. I have an eBay order of an old favorite perfume on the way, so I’ll probably make him suffer at least a few times soon. I hope to one day find the magical scent that he actually likes, but I’m not holding my breath on that one.

    ETA: The perfume on the way is Sun Moon Stars. It’s a vintage, original formula. Potentially spoiled, but I took a chance. If it smells like I remember, I know SO is going to hate it, but I’ll enjoy the trip down memory lane.

    I do not wear it. I get pretty bad head aches from many fragrances so I don’t bother wearing any just in case others have the same issue.

    Soon 🙂 . I’m deciding between a couple. I don’t care if it makes other people ill since its not like I’m going to soak myself in it. Until then I have a scented bodywash& lotion combo + my VS scent (Amber Romance)

    Most perfumes are too strong for me and give me headaches. I wear my perfume for special occasions.

    I’ll wear it on special occasions, but generally speaking perfume makes me sick/gives me headaches. So I tend to avoid it!

    I wear it every day but I rotate fragrances so I don’t become tolerant to one and overdo it. At the moment I’m wearing Tokyo Milk Sugar Sugar.

    I looove perfume and have quite the collection! I love when I can smell mens cologne, it just seems sexy to me. I’m just not a fan of anything like White Diamonds or patchouli GAG!

    My current favorites are – Marc Jacobs Daisy & Dot, Coach Poppy and anything by Giorgio Armani.

    I wear perfume daily. During the week I typically do a few squirts of body splash & my fav perfume — On the weekends when I get dolled up to work at the bar, I wear a lot more. I ALWAYS get complimented on my perfume — I typically mix 3-5 smells. I go for light, fruity, sweet, musky scents. I cannot wear heavy scents, they make me feel nautious.
