I am still in love with SJPs "Lovely" I picked up a bottle when I was in NY the weekend it came out. I also have worn Estée Lauder "pleasures" since it came out. Its so clean and fresh. Those are my two go to bottles. I wear them all year round.

I'm so boring...

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue in the spring/summer

Chanel Mademoiselle in the fall/winter.

I have a few other scents that I use on special occasions or when I just want to try something different but most of the time I stick to my staples.

since i'm very particular when it comes to perfumes (it took me forever to find one i like) i mostly wear the same ones all year round - alternating depending on my mood. though i prefer slightly heavier/muskier/vanilla-y scents so i don't overdo it in the summer. having said that i wear: dior hypnotic posion, dolce & gabbana the one and prada (i think it's just called prada).

That Lolita bottle is beautifuuuul. I usually wear my fragrances year round. I am still stuck on Sean John's Unforgivable Woman. It's so grown-up! :)

I do change with the seasons. In the fall/winter I'm all about Pure Vanilla by La Vanila. In the spring/summer I usually wear Estee Lauder Beautiful Love.

The Pure Vanilla is my favorite. I started wearing it Monday - it's officially fall, no matter that the temps are still in the high 80's!

Wes said...

Lolita is another one of my fav's... I first wore it about 5 years ago and now EVERYONE has it so I had to give it up, lol.

K-Bear said...

BGG, I like the sound of changing up my fragrances BUT so many of them give me headaches that I have to stick with the tried and true. I must say, the beautiful bottles make me wanna give them a try just because! Oh, I heard Diddy's new fragrance is a must have!

I know this was probably intended for the ladies...but I'm commenting!

i switch up all the time. I get at least something new each time I go to the store. my new fave is Chrome and Now by Azarro.

I like the new Usher scent for men, not so much for women. The old Usher scent is THAT HOTNESS!!!

i just smelled that juicy scent yesterday. it is GREAT. i might have to get that. covet smells good too but im not going to run out and buy that.

lymariposa said...

I don't usually use perfume unless I'm going out. I haven't even bought a new perfume in years, I think it's about time I try out one of these new scents. I love all the new bottles everything is so pretty, it will also look nice on my dresser ;o)

Sherita said...

I adjust my scent with my mood. I love Ralph Lauren's "Hot" and "Romance". I used to be stuck on Chanel No. 5!

Calming Corners said...

Yum i love fragrances, but the thing with me is the bottles I loved the way some are designed.

slacker chic said...

That Lolita bottle is adorable. I haven't sniffed SJP's "Covet", but I did douse myself in "Lovely" one evening while on a billion hour layover. It did a great job of making me smell *lovely* even though I hadn't had a chance to shower all day.

Kwana said...

I'm not a big fragrance girl but I'm always looking for the perfect scent and you can barely smell but is just heavenly. I hate it when I can really smell it.

Brandi Bates said...

yeah that new Usher is fiyah! I actually like the male fragrance better than the female.

Afia said...

I wear fragrances depending on my mood so I'm not really concerned by seasons. To be honest, I stay away from scents that are very commercial. I try to stick with more organic scents that are naturally found in nature.

SolShine7 said...

I stick to Ralph Lauren. Romance is my favorite.

ceecee said...

I just got the flowers by kenzo fragrance. I know it's been out for a minute but hey!

I don't really use perfumes. I'm cheap, so I sometimes wear Bath'n'Body works body splash in Cherry Blossoms.

THE WIND

(Part I)

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you;

But when the leaves hang trembling,

The wind is passing through.

(Part II)

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I;

But when the trees bow down their heads,

The wind is passing by.

O wind , why do you never rest,

Wandering, whistling to and fro,

Bring rain out of the west,

From the dim north bringing snow?

I’ve smelt Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest ‘Covet’ and this is so beautiful .I am gonna purchasing it online. I think that SJP has put a lot of effort into her scents. I’m not a huge fan of Celebrity Perfumes either but I liked SJP’s latest ‘Covet’coz it smells great. I’ve checked many sites & finally I found it here with great price:

Hi, I think my favourite fragrances at the moment would be Kenzo flower and Ralph Lauren Hot, that i just bought from cheap smells. The dry down with the vanilla and honeysuckle is to die for!
