Who wears perfume? Which ones do you like? My old fave was Issey Miyake- L'eau d'Issey but now I only use Carolina Herrerra (Chic for men). It's really expensive (I paid 55 bucks- which I find a hell of a lot, cos you don't get all that much)and it smells really classy... Doesn't Angelina Jolie also wear one of C H's perfumes?
Whattay'all use? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I used to hide my scent...till I discovered most of the girls I was interested in liked my natural smell more... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

I don't wear any perfume (no, not aftershave or silly names like that, it's all perfume men, get used to it). Never have, because it stops me breathing (really, my throat closes - an asthma thing). I get so annoyed walking down the street and pass someone who reaks of the stuff - I just choke.

And I think 'real' perfume...is more expensive...

Pulled from a website:

What is the difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne?

The differences are simply a matter of the amount or concentration of oils in the fragrance. These oils are called "juice." The highest concentration of "juice" is in perfume (or parfum). Next would be Eau de Parfum, then Eau de Toilette, and finally Eau de Cologne.

Actually, Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne are generally interchangeable, particularly in Men's fragrances. After Shave has the least amount of oils. The higher the concentration of "juice" the longer your fragrance will last, and the less you need to apply.

Of the commercial ones, I like Madness by Chopard and Omnia by Bvlgari the best. I currently have the former, but it's expensive so I use it sparingly and only on special occassions http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

But the perfume I most often wear is one little drop of cinnamon essential oil. It doesn't cost so much, and that little bottle lasts for a long time. And it's the nicest scent there is, at least for me.

Any ladies actually prefer a man who washes enough not to need artificial scents?

I wouldn't wear a perfume, only if I was allergic to it. I agree that some people wear perfumes that stop you from beathing. This appears mostly to women http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Why some of them are not able to understand that their perfumes can even kill a mosquito that flies around them? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

a) he (she) stinks and you grimace http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

b) he (she) wears a nice perfume that really attracted your attention http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Although I am also allergic, especially this season http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif , I love subtle perfumes. I put on only one drop or two, nothing more (nothing more as far as the perfume is concerned, that is http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif :D )

Well I do admit that even though I would look twice anyway, a scent drifting by me is not unwelcome... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
