I wear Jessica McClintock, and have for years. Every day, even though I work in a hardware store.

Ages ago, I complimented my dental hygenist on her cologne and asked her what it was. She told me, and added, "Total strangers stop and compliment me on this cologne". So I bought some and have been wearing it ever since. She was right: total strangers do compliment me and ask me about it, even though I just spray one light spritz on my throat in the morning.

AND I like it myself (I hate most colognes).

I agree with you, pdswife - cooking magazines should not have perfumed pages in them!

It is funny if I get a whiff of a certain men's cologne it will immediately remind me of an ex boyfriend or friend in highschool & college...weird so many years later.

I always wear fragrance. For years and years I've been wearing Cassini by Oleg Cassini. Occasionally I'll wear Yardley English Lavender. I always bathe with Yardley English Lavender soap and, Fisher's Mom, every bath/shower ends with a dusting of Coty's Emeradue bath powder. Buck always gives me a box of it for Christmas. Love it.

We've lived in our condo for almost 30years and so we know lots of neighbours. Because I'm a senior citizen...lol, I'm always getting hugged, and along with most hugs I hear, "oh, you smell so nice"....I've been wearing Fendi for years. Love it!

I got hooked on Dream by The Gap when I was in high school and have been wearing it ever since! My husband wears Gray Flannel by Geofry Beene but I have always been a sucker for CK Obsession!

If you subscribe to a magazine that does that, you can request that they send yours without them. At least you used to be able to do that. My mom developed perfume allergies in her 40s and that is what she did.

YT--We have aftershave here too, as well as cologne. Aftershave is generally not as strong and long-lasting as cologne.

I LOVE perfume and cologne. I wear them most of the time. If I am going to be in a crowded or closed-in place (airplane, etc.) I don't wear them because I know a lot of people do have perfume allergies.

My absolute favorite, since 1978, is Jontue. Some of my favorites are Emeraude, Tabu, Avon's Sweet Honesty, Avon's Hawaiian White Ginger (I don't know if they still make it either Fisher's Mom--I bought another brand of white ginger but didn't like it), Chanel No. 5, and floral scents like rose.

Musk makes me feel sick to my stomach--can't take that at all!

As far as men's colognes and aftershaves, my favorites on James are British Sterling, Canoe, and Brut. I remember Hai Karate from when I was a kid and would love to find him some of that if there is still a bottle of it somewhere out there! I have to keep James well-stocked on his "smell goody" (as he calls it) because if he runs out, he wears mine!!!

My dad aways wore Old Spice, and I always loved it. Someone got James some right after we were married though, and I can't stand it on him! Why? It reminds me of my dad, and it is really hard to get romantic with your sweetie when he smells like your dad! I have talked to others about that, and they have the same problem! So it looks like Old Spice may have to skip a generation!

I almost forgot--I had some cologne called Brown Sugar (they also have one called Sugar--actually it might have been that one that I had) that I got from a beauty aids home party that someone at work had (can't remember what it was called). That stuff smelled so good! The funny thing was, wherever I wore it I heard some interesting comments. Someone thought she smelled popcorn, and some girls sitting behind me at church thought they smelled candy.

OMG! ME TOO! Barbara, this is how I feel about Old Spice on Ken. It freaks me out just a bit. I bought him some from Bugs for his first Father's Day, and it weirded me out horribly. LMAO! Glad I'm not alone on this one. (I'm having a deja vu moment. Have we talked about this before?)
