View Full Version : What is you Fav Perfume /Aftershave /Fragerance?
Mine is Diesel Masculine, mmmm that smells so nice!!
I like Britney Spears:curious
Tomb Raider Master
Axe and many more.
I like Charlie Red but like Tomb Raider Master said, there are more to choose from! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
My favourites are Issey Miyake and Kenzo Homme. I wear them daily.
Givenchy Homme is wonderful... Burberry Weekend is also nice. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
I like Avon's Dreamlife or Soft/Sensual Embrace (can't remember which it is). Nice and light - not bowl-you-over, sock-you-between-the-eyes strong.
Perfume? (that includes aftershave) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/yuck.gif Generally I don't like them, never have. Being asthmatic for 30 years, perfume would stop my breathing instantly. So I never wear any and keep my distance from anyone else who is. I especially hate it when you walk past someone on the street and they reek of the stuff.
I especially hate it when you walk past someone on the street and they reek of the stuff. I agree with that!
(btw perfume in large amounts is harmful to your olfaction, because perfume is chemical fluid "It is unhealthy to buy products that contain anything other than pure unadulterated essential oils ordistillate waters, no matter how attracted to the synthetic fragrance that you may be"). Just don't think that I'm a perfume hater, I'm just telling facts :D

i have two http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
Victoria's Secret Vanilla Lace and Candies
I'm sorry, I like the natural smell, not like the BO nasty natural, just natural clean smell. I guess I'm that way because my brother is allergic to perfume/fragrance and added smell type stuff, so I've grown up without it. That includes soap, shampoo, deoderant, laundry detergent, air freshener, so on, so for.
BTW I despise Axe. I think smells horriable, and teenage boys spray too much of that **** on thinking that women are really turned on by it. T.T Stupidity is bliss.
My favourite is Madness by Chopard.
And speaking of perfume, little is good. Using a ton to cover up the fact that you've missed your bath is just yuk!
I like 'Diesel - Masculine' or 'Hugo Boss' but generally it makes me sick to smell any kind. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
I only use it if im going out to meet a girl lol http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
my favourite perfume definatly has to be:
dolc'e vita (pronounced dolch-a'veeta) LUV IT!
i also rate "beautiful" gorge ;)
Not a big Aftershave fan, but it's better than putting on raw alcohol LOL! My personal preference would be Jovan Musk. However, try natural fragrance extracts http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif . Much better http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif .
Olympic Sprit: Heritage
Only available during the Athens 2004 Olympics http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif
Call me crazy, but I like how my gf smells after a bath http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
I'm with you Net. I had to leave a job because the girl who worked with me used to drown herself with Opium. She put it on before she left home, when she got to work, after lunch and before she went home. I spent my days not being able to breathe with my eyes watering.
I am not an asthmatic I'm just allergic to them. I have to be very careful with soap, deodorant, shampoo, air fresheners etc. and I have a really big problem with flyspray. My knees and legs go weak, I cannot breathe, my lips go numb, my head feels like it is separated from my shoulders, my brain stops functioning and I get an immediate migraine.
About the only one that does not make me sick is Anais Anais and then only lightly. Really prefer old fashioned Lavender Oil or Lavender Water. I sometimes use lavender oil if I have a headache (rub a little into the temples) or a few drops on my pillow if I can't sleep.
Oh hell, Opium is one of the worst I find! It has such a pungent, overpowering smell. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/yuck.gif I'm the same with other sprays too Kate, but not as bad. Fly spray is appalling, some hairsprays, and damn air "fresheners". I always remember in the 1970's I couldn't get too near my mother when she was getting ready to go out as she used lots of hairspray to maintain her upturned bird's nest hairstyle! :D
And again, like you, I am OK with natural essential oils.
I've never understood why people wear perfume, and what's even funnier to me is that despite never wearing any myself, I so frequently get people saying 'mmm, you smell nice, what are you wearing?' :D
whatever is on sale
My mum was the same Net, although in those days I never had a problem. It was only in the 90's when the MS got really bad that I developed an allergy.
I hate getting into an elevator with people, I avoid them like the plague. Why do women think it is attractive to drown themselves in perfume, or men for that matter with aftershave. You get close to them to kiss or hug them and you reek for hours of their perfume or aftershave. It is so revolting.
With what it does to my sinus's and breathing I would much rather smell BO. I have just suffered 2 months of hayfever because someone close to me has Jasmine. Jasmine should be banned and it should be illegal to wear perfume or aftershave in public.
The pain and suffering I have just gone through with hayfever was appalling. It is enough to make you suicidal. When you wake up in the middle of the night sneezing, and for 2 months barely able to breathe. I have been going through 2 boxes of tissues about every 4 days. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif
Sorry to read all this Tramp /Net. I never realized how much other people could be affected by what I/we wear. I tend to only wear aftershave on the rare occasions I go out, and then only a hint. Having read this I will no longer do so. I would hate to think I have affected some one elses quality of life. 2 Months? :(
No wonder I hate the end of winter beginning of spring. The hayfever only started to clear this week. If I could find out who has the Jasmine I think I would commit murder. For the last 2 weeks my sinus's have become infected. And if you know what an infected wound smells like, just imagine having that smell in you're nose all the time.
I have no objection to anyone wanting to wear aftershave but try to pick something with a natural fragrance like green apples. Smells delightful and usually doesn't cause people a problem. (Like the Norsca Green Apple Shampoo fragrance).
I have had male friends visit wearing aftershave and they have given me a kiss and I have had to shower and change after they have left because the aftershave is on my skin and clothes.
The trouble is people think that if a small amount is good, lots is even better. It's like anything, if you overdo it it's bad. Really the idea of perfume or aftershave is you should only get a gentle aroma from it when you get really close. But people put on soooo much that you can smell them coming 20 feet away. I don't know why my friend wears so much aftershave as he cannot smell it himself as he lost his sense of smell after a really bad car accident.
Thank you Drewy for your responsible attitude as most people just don't realize or care that what they are wearing can cause someone pain and suffering. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
While there would be a number of blo ody minded people out there who don't care for others I think the majority are like myself, ignorant to the facts (although we've been probably told enough)
BTW. How far away can Jasmine affect people? I have it home and if is going to trouble my neighbours or pedestrians walking past then that will be my job for the weekend - pulling it out.
I'm not too sure, the problem is at this time of year we get strong winds which blow the pollen around. Up until last year there was Jasmine on the fence 2 doors down and my hayfever was a lot worse last year. Luckily it was ripped out when they demolished the house and fence and put up a new fence and house. This year the hayfever was not quite as bad so that indicates it is probably coming from a bit further away. Then again it may be in the neighbours yard on my topside as he has a six foot fence and I cannot see into his yard.
That's why I said if I knew who had it I would kill (or get the council to get them to remove it). But with the winds the pollen can travel a long way. Personally I don't think it should be grown as it probably causes more than 50% of all hayfever. It is a shame as it is a really beautiful vine and if you are not allergic to it the perfume is lovely. But if you have a problem it is unbearable. I only have to walk past it and I start sneezing.
