Do You Have a Signature Scent?

Are You a Perfume Cheater?

Some of us, like me, would buy up half the fragrances in Sephora if we could. Others, like my dear mama, have spent a lifetime cultivating a captivating air that revolves around an unmistakable signature scent. And some people stick around for a little while before they move on to something new, like butterflies resting momentarily on flowers. Having a signature scent takes a lot of work or a lot of luck, and I wonder how many people have the dedication. So tell me, can you maintain a signature scent? Or do you fall victim to the temptation of olfactory infidelity?

I have literally been wearing the same perfume for 8 years! I cannot believe it has actually been that long now that I counted it out! Anyway, it is just classic Ferragamo and I loveeee it!

I definitely could not be loyal to one fragrance for the rest of my life. Different areas of my life need different fragrances, plus I'd get really bored.

I used to wear a Hard Candy fragrance and I liked it but didn't love as it was too sweet. But now I've found my perfect match: Vera Wang Princess !

My signature scent, Fiorucci, has been discontinued, so I'm on the prowl (as it were) for a new one. So it was actually me being cheated on by my perfume, not the other way around! :-p

I have to keep the scents flowing. So I'm not monogamous at the moment with any scents.

I have fragrances that I'll wear as long as they're made, and will stalk to buy back-ups of when/if their d/c, like the original COCO by Chanel, Colors de Benetton, Clinique Happy and Bulgari Pour Femme (Rose Essentiel), but other than those, I'm a total fragrance 'ho.

I'm a total fragrance cheater. My husband knows how much I love them so I get a new one for almost every gift-giving occasion. It just never gets old to try something new and I love having lots to choose from and switch up.

I've been using the classic Diesel for a few years now, but I love L by Gwen Stefani and the new Hugo Boss orange!

I've been devoted to Alfred Sung's Shi for years. That's definitely my signature, but I'm down to mix it up once in a while with something different just for fun. I'm REALLY picky, though, so it's hard to find something I like.

I wear Realities..I think it's a Liz Claiborne, but not really sure because it only says Realities on the bottle. I've worn it for about 5 years now, so I suppose you could probably say it's my signature scent. I've tried to switch it up a few times, but my boyfriend says it's just not right..lol and I love it anyway!

I don't wear a lot of perfume, but when I do I stick with Tresor by Lancombe, Beautiful by Estee Lauder, or the classic Chanel No. 5. I want to find a "signature scent" but I'm just too lazy to find one! ha ha

I usually use White Musk from Bath and Body Works, but when I have a special occasion, I use Ferragamo's Shine from the Incanto series.

I have been using Irresistible by Givenchy for two years now. Beofre that, I used Mahora by Guerlain. It smelled beachy and exotic and had it not been a limited edition, I would have made it my signature scent. I'll probably move onto something else when my current bottle of Irresistible is done.

I have over 50 bottles, so cheater to the extreme. I have never found my absolute love in perfume. I imagine it's some niche perfume that will be discontinued before I can get to it.

I have multiple scents I want to try, some not as easy to get since they're not very commercial. I have the tendency to like similar scents, but I think maybe I could pick a signature scent when I'm a little older. I like the idea of ia signature scent and if I was sure about which perfume to pick, I'd already have one.

I wish I had a signature scent-- but there are so many perfumes out there that smell absolutely amazing, that I just cant resist! I try to only use one bottle at a time, then when it runs out, I treat myself to a new scent. I just got through with Vera Wang Princess, and now I'm on to Miss Chere Dior...I'm thinking next time around I'll do some Issie M...what do you think?
