Perfume (which for the purposes of my discussion means actual perfume, cologne, eau de toilette, name it) is a polarizing thing. Some people love it. Some people hate it. Some are allergic to strong scents, and some just don't want to have to put up with others' choices.
For the most part, I am one of those who like it. It always seems like a treat to me. Though of course, I've been overwhelmed by people who seem to wear the entire bottle at one time, or scents that I just don't like at all.
One library I worked in had a regular researcher who was a minister, who seemed to use an entire bottle of Calvin Klein's "Eternity" - and though it was just ridiculously overwhelming and way too much, we all agreed it was the perfectly named scent for a minister. :-)
I like a lot of different perfumes, though some are "special occasion" and others are just fine for every day. This is of course my own thing, since it's not like there are instructions in the box with the bottle stating when and where the scent should be worn ...
For the most part, samples are good for me, and usually what I can afford. It takes me a long time to use a whole bottle - often I'm sick of it well before it's gone. Anyway, here are some that are faves of mine.
But this is one of my all-time favorites - so much so that I treated myself to a [small] bottle!
I've come a long way with perfumes since regularly buying my mother a bottle of "Evening in Paris" at the drugstore as a kid ... :-)
What about you? Do you like scent? What are your faves?
