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 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?

I've worn Calvin Klein's Obsession for about 8 years. I get lots of compliments but they never believe it's Obsession as it apparently smells different on me. I've tried to mix it up in the past but people prefer the Obsession.
