Default Can we have a perfume / cologne thread?

What is everyone wearing?

I want to know your secrets.

Tell me about your history of scent.

About 11 months ago I bought a bottle of Chanel Antaeus on my birthday and it propelled an addiction into the history of fragrance.

I've since accumulated about a dozen bottles of various moods.

I love sweet perfumes and own a ton of cheap ones. Cotton candy, vanilla, cherry, stuff like that. Most of them are pink and brandless. They still smell really good, though.

i've been blasting this the past few days https://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/...s-900-116.html

it really grows with the summer heat! the rose note is really nuts in high temps. I bought it during the fall thinking it was for that.

usually in the summer i go with straight Guerlain Vetiver but it fades so fast or my nose just ignores it.

this rose note is really long lasting

I do have Pink Sugar, actually. I even have the sparkly mists but I exhibit some restraint and don't use it much. I favor summery fragrances and rarely deviate seasonally, but in fall I will get fragrances with apple and brown sugar notes. And I double down with complimentary scented lotions and body butters. I like to smell like a cupcake shop with smooth skin.

I've never seen (or noticed?) Angel, but now that it's on my radar I'll try it. Reading the description it seems like something I would like, depending on how strong the floral notes are. I'm all about some subtle blossom-y goodness but if it gets too much like a straight bouquet I'll get a headache.

i wear both the guys and girls versions

(gender distinctions of perfume didn't exist until like 1960 - total marketing scam)

guys' is like coffee and rotten bananas - girls' is more like rotten bananas and cotton candy

if you like pink sugar you deserve to upgrade to angel. you'll love yourself for it. you can get bottles for like $50.

I like the sound of both, for sure. I can't stand the overly musty kind of cologne that's so popular.

angel is a fougere (tends to smell like food)

i tend to dislike florals too (personally - but i like smelling them)

i like chypres that are deep and heavy in the oak moss territory and smell like wet forest floors

Yeah, I used to exclusively wear that sort of stuff. Inexpensive, fruity, feminine body mists from Bath & Body Works.

Every dude I know just douses themselves in Axe, Old Spice, or crappy aftershave. You guys are a cut above.

can you describe this? what did you replace it with?

In high school I had a bottle of KISS (the band) cologne that everyone swore they loved but it's gotta be a cheap dupe of something better.

aquatic cologne from the 90s is an infiltration of that porn-becoming-mainstream ideology of like naked shaved twinks smelling clean and smooth-bodied.

On the other hand you have pubes and chest hair and oil and forest floors. Maximalism.
