My first favorites ever were the original L'air du Temps by Nina Ricci, and 4711.
Later, White Linen, Coco, Bulgari, Obsession, men's Tabac, and Hermés Caleche.
Enduring favorites still: Shalimar, men's original Lagerfeld, and my ultimate all time fave -- original Bandit by Robert Piguet.
Plus my favorite pure essential oils, Patchouli, Frankincense, and Lavender.
Yes, many have memories attached. And most fragrances annoy my sinuses unless worn very sparingly away from face.
i like Chanel no.5. I only managed to have it because my mother gave me one. she used to work for a beauty supplier, like MaryKay and other cosmetic suppliers. And i like Chanel Gardenia. i like many others but i dont wear alot of perfumes. i should, because the perfumes i got do expire after years of not using. 🙁 I already have those bottled sprays you can use after shower like victoria secrets body sprays.
For anyone trying to track down an old favorite, obscure, or vintage scent, or learn more about the elements that comprise them, there's a great website called Fragrantica. Discussions, histories, sample trading, and more.
Another Moon in Taurus here / my signature fragrance is Kiton / always complemented on the scent. Subtle no comparison to anything I have ever encountered but unforgettable. Worn it many, many years and never tire of it.
Chanel No. 5 girl here.
I LOVED blue jeans and another "blue..." something from the dime store in the sixties. Cannot find these except at vintage perfume sites.
Sweet Honesty from AVON...I find at yard sales LOL.
And violet. A good violet scent.....priceless.
Blue Waltz. Lol. Cheap stuff from the “dime store”.
