I own about 9 bottles of perfume. Sometimes I will wear just the 1 fragrance for the week, sometimes I change them around a bit depending on my mood / the season.

I can't really pick one out that is my absolute favourite or is my signature scent (although I love :heart: Violets and woody scents). I tend to buy a completely new fragrance to try when I run out of a bottle.

My safest go to would probably be Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline EDT or Chloe EDP at the moment.

What is your signature scent?

I rotate a few:

- Chanel No 5 - mostly for weekend wear in Winter.
- L'eau Chanel No 5 - much lighter than the original, so where whenever I feel like it.
- Dior J'adore
- Jo Malone Blue Agave and Cacao

Rainy Days - I love Jo Malone Blue Agava and Cacao! I found it too sweet and heavy for summer though so will get some attention again in the colder months.

I also have Dark Amber and Ginger Lily which I use going out at night mainly.

ETA I feel left out of the Chanel No. 5 club. It just smells like cat pee to me. I can wear Chanel No.19 and smells great on my skin.

Beautiful by Estée Lauder. I've had men say to me I smell so great they want to eat me!

I don't know about eating someone but when my DH wears Chanel bleu or allure for men I just want to snuggle in his arms.

I really like Kylie Minogue's Dazzling Darling. I've run out and need to get another bottle!

I have a few. Miss Dior is pretty much a winter perfume. I find it too heavy for summer. Summer daytimes I usually wear DKNY Be Delicious, summer night times Cacharel Wish. I used to wear Chloe Narcisse religiously, but went off it, as it's very sweet. I prefer fresh scents, nothing too heavy or floral.

I have a whole pile of others - my partner seems to like Oriental/woody scents and keeps buying them for me, but I hate them! So I have a few bottles of perfumes that I've tried once. I gave two away but they keep coming!

My favourite at the moment is Miu Miu perfume.

Omg, an old bf used to wear Chanel Allure and I LOVE it. I still can't smell it without thinking of him.

I have so many I love but Givency Irresistible is my signature. It's a bit different from the usual woman's fragrance.

It's a fabulous scent isn't it. Masculine, light, sensual and clean.

I love perfume buT don't have a signature scent as I like to mix it up. If you like violet try Marc Jacobs Daisy. He also once did a sole violet splash which was so good I brought two.

I love my Chance Chanel.  So much so that DF bought me all the creams etc for Christmas.  Otherwise Vera Wang Princess for a bit of a change as I love it too.

Considering that the natural environment is trying to kill me, manufactured scents are a definite no no. Perfumes *sneeze sneeze sneeze* Body creams *itch* *hives* *itch*

I stopped wearing perfume daily during my first pregnancy due to morning sickness and really haven't restarted it. So my fragrance knowledge is at least five years old. I like it have a couple of options on rotation, including Chanel Chance, YSL Baby Doll and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. I'd like some new recommendations based on these!
