LOL Yes, actually I had asked before (a few years ago) if anyone else had experienced the same thing. It had been awhile though, and I thought it fit perfectly here.

Or do like Granny Clampit on the Beverly Hillbillies, and dab a little "vanilly" behind your ears.

I wear CK in2U (her) and also a fragrance by the Gap called Dream More. Both are light. The CK perfume lasts a long time which is why it cost a bit. I used to wear another by Jean Paul Gaultier though I cannot recall the name but it was a nice bottle of a woman dressed sexy Nice scent and it also lasts a long time.

The best thing to do when purchasing perfume is as others have mentioned, get a card and spray it, maybe rub some on your wrist, and then wait to see if you like it. Label the card too because often times I find cards for perfumes that do not match the name of the perfume. I agree, it really is too bad that stores do not give out those vials of perfume, I loved those.

As for myself and most people that I know, we are using scented body sprays/mist.

As for the perfumers, they are buying at Victoria Secret.

Customers buying in dept stores are buying scented credit cards.

People shopping discount stores are buying natural scents in lawn & garden.

Thanks Andy. I can hardly wait to go to the spa for another garlic rub.

Jo Malone's Nectarine Blossom & Honey is my favorite scent. Ever since I found it I haven't worn any other fragrance line. Sometimes I'll mix it with Orange Blossom. I do get stopped and asked about it quite a bit, but it can only be purchased at either Jo Malone stores (my nearest is in Las Vegas at the Wynn) or online. They're out of the UK.

Tip for unmarried girls who are looking for a husband: Dab some gravy or hotdog relish behind your ears. If that doesn't work, try some motor oil!

I liked Aramis on my hubby but due to allergies that he's developed over the years he can't wear it anymore which means when he's around me I can't wear Opium---he literally starts coughing and choking. But I get lots of compliments when I wear it and he's out of town. It's difficult however to stop at perfume counters in the mall as it's an instant headache for me--same with candle shops.....be careful if you travel with perfume that is over 3oz as the airlines will make you throw it away and they don't care what it cost you.
