Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

It’s National Fragrance Day! (Yes, that’s a real thing, I swear.)

 

 

Here at Sephora HQ, we like to call fragrance our “liquid courage,” because one spritz of the right juice can make you feel like you can take on the world.

 

So today’s installment of Show & Tell is dedicated to terrific top notes.

 

• What fragrance are you wearing today?
• Where do you like to apply fragrance?
• How many fragrances do you own?
• Do you change your fragrance with the seasons or do you have a signature scent?
• What fragrance family do you gravitate toward?
   Floral
   Warm & Spicy
   Fresh
   Woody & Earthy

 

Post your answers in the comments below, then upload a photo of your fragrance stash!

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

Today I am wearing Givenchy's Ange Ou Demon Le Secret, it's my second bottle of the scent!

 

I like to apply fragrance on the inside of my wrists, bend of the inside of my elbows, side of my neck near the underside of my ear, and behind my knees if I'm wearing shorts, a skirt, or a dress.

 

Gosh, to count the fragrances I own....over 15...at the bare minimum. Working in the beauty industry has really stocked me up!

 

I don't really go by seasons in terms of switching up scents, I just pick to suite my mood, for the past year and half I've strongly favored Issey Miyake's Floral, it's very different from other scents I have which are more gourmand/amber based scents, but once I tried it, I fell in love. I used it quite often around the time my boyfriend and I started dating and he would always compliment the scent so it gave me extra incentive to stick with it more. I'm on bottle number 3, and that's from going to the 1.7, to 3.3, to 1 oz bottles!

 

I generally tend to gravitate toward sweet, gourmand scents, but don't like ones that are strictly vanilla or sugary smelling. If it's a floral, I prefer either crisp scents like lily or lighter touches of rose rather than scents like sweet pea, which is just too much for me. Most of the scents I own have a rich, amber base to them. I like how warm they stay and they generally last longer.

 

On a side note, I'm totally guilty of sporting a few men's fragrances from time to time. I'm a lover of Gucci Guilty (hello, Chris Evans!) and Chanel's Allure. Smiley Happy

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

Currently I'm wearing Diesel's Loverdose.  Usually I'll change base notes of underlying scents with the seasons, but mostly I go by sunny/cloudy/special event, tend to put some on my wrists and neck, and I switch between 3 different scents.  I'd have more but I'm INCREDIBLY picky.  I tend to gravitate toward floral yet sweet scents, sometimes spicy if it's moderate.  

 

My fiance's been looking at scents for himself, so far he likes Diesel's Only the Brave (he LOVES Diesel stuff), but I got him a sample of that Paco Rabanne One Million.  AND OMG he put it on, and I couldn't seem to get my nose off of him XD  Normally I'm pretty neutral on most men's scents, but this one is a sniffer magnet >.>

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

I love fragrances!

 

So happy to see this thread come up today Smiley Happy

 

I don't have anything on today as I'm still at home and with this cold, I can't smell a thing! But my recent favorite is my Fan di Fendi which is SO light and springy.

 

Usually I'll spray fragrance on my neck and a spritz on each wrist, if I have on a dress or skirt I'll put a quick spritz on the backs of my knees as fragrances tend to work their way up throughout the day.  I do love to change my fragrances around and while I used to stick to one or two scents only (Chanel Chance and Ralph Lauren Ralph) I might change my scent every day if I can!

 

I really like to wear sweet scents, almost the sugary kind but not TOO sugary! I seem to get the most compliments on those from everyone!

 

Here's a picture of my at home stash, just the top shelf of my perfumes since the ones on the shelf below are ridiculously disorganized! I own far too many to count so here's just a few.  I'm big on Gwen Stefani & rollerballs but the Beiber perfume? My secret weapon Smiley Wink

 

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

Hahah, @ Moregun, don't you just love it when you cuddle and it's like WHIFFFFFFF! *sigh and into dreamy land*

 

I do that to my b/f and I'm always "Please don't mind me and my nose, you just smell heavenly, that's all! Carry on!" Smiley Tongue

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

@ Diana, OMG, I've never seen the mermaid Gwen scent before! That one is so cute! What's it smell like? Or is it just the same scent with a special edition top?

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

@lylysa - working in the beauty industry stocks you up on everything! lol. I have more than 15 as well, but I probably rotate between 2 or 3 - Dolce & Gabbana The One, YSL Parisienne, and Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb. I might wear something lighter this spring, but those are my go-tos.

 

@MoreGun89 - I LOVE One Million on my bf. He sprayed it on in the store and I was hooked. Definitely a sniff magnet! I actually like the women version of the million line too.

 

@Diana - Sooo cute! I think it's hilarious that your secret weapon is Beiber. I'm not gonna hate. Smiley Happy

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

@ Candace, Flowerbomb is def a fave! I was excited that the fragrance bag sampler had it in there! I'm almost out of the little spray. It turned a lot warmer on me which was unexpected, but I like it! It helps keep the scent going longer!

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

@ lylysa YES!  It makes for a definitely happy lady!  He's kind of the same way with me and that good ol' Jasmine scent too now XD

 

@candacebt I saw it on the samples for long enough that it seemed interesting, really wasn't expecting much from it, but, I think I may need to talk him into getting that one in particular >.>

 

@dianabt, I don't think I've seen the Gwen line before, the bottles are adorable!

Re: Show & Tell: National Fragrance Day

I'm currently wearing Coach Poppy

I like to spray it on my wrist and then rub some from my wrist to my neck. Then one more spray to walk through.

I love sweet and floral scents. 

I don't remember how many scents I own.

I still have a ton of Victoria Secret frangence to go through
