I have a collection of about a dozen or so fragrances that I wear frequently, and have had two Bond No. 9 fragrances on my wish list forever (So New York and Nuits de Noho, which are fabulous mixed together, even more so than each individually). Some of my favorites are light and airy (Philosophy Falling in Love, Elizabeth W Sweet Tea, Diptique Oyedo) while others are deeper and more heady (Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Poupee de Rochas, Ginestet Botrytis). Despite liking fragrance, I am extremely conscious of the fact that many suffer from fragrance sensitivity and allergies, and I rarely wear any to work or in situation where I will be in close proximity to strangers. For example, I think that perfume should be banned at the gym, on trains, planes, buses (basically any place where the person next to you cannot easily escape)! Heavy scents are an instant migraine for me and for some reason I find that those who wear the most offensive fragrances tend to apply them with liberal abandon. I was nearly put into a Tresor-induced coma on the bus home yesterday by the woman whom I can only assume washes her clothes or bathes in the stuff. The fragrance permeated the entire interior of the bus, and this was at 6PM. I can only imagine how strong the scent must have been when freshly applied. Regardless of personal preference or taste in scents (and I think fragrance is highly personal), I believe that a person should have to be close enough to touch you to deduce that you're wearing perfume.
What is your opinion on fragrance? Do you wear it daily? What are some of your favorites?
