Perfume question

inchworminjerseyNovember 7, 2003

I've been going crazy trying to find a light floral scent that doesn't seem to bother people when you are in a crowd. Some perfumes seem to have an undertone that can be really irritating to some people's sinuses. Any suggestions of things to look for...Thanks

The one linked below is very light and fresh smelling. I can't tell you how many compliments I get on it...including from complete strangers.

Here is a link that might be useful: Heart

weed, I have yet to try yours but intend to eventually.
One floral perfume I used to wear years ago is Anais Anais from Cacharel, it's very soft and not overpowering. L'Air du Temps de Nina Ricci is also a classic soft scent...

mitch, you can get a sample pack for $7.50 if you email them about it. If shipping is outrageous, and you really want it, I can order it and mail it myself for less.

Weed, I ordered Heart,, hope I like it, didn't know they have a sample pack. Also like Miracle body mist by Lancome, and love the new Blue by Lauren, but it's so light it's gone in an hour.

Dragonfly, I caved and bought the scented Blue lotion. I don't often find scents I like, and I just love it. During the time I was testing it, I got 6 spray samples. Then when I bought the lotion/perfume combo I got a small sample bottle. I'm going to sell them on eBay to help underwrite the cost ;) Seriously - these things sell!

If you end up not liking Heart, email me and I'll buy what's left. Even when I have other scents around, I still use Heart regularly.

I love Heart also. Ohhh how I miss Love's Musky Jazmin scent... even trusty e-bay doesn't have it.

Nelson/bach and Aura Cacia both make essential oils that I LOVE...and I have noticed that natural scents are much less likely to freak out the sensitive (mints and the heavy florals like rose and jasmin seem to be exceptions- some people are specifically allergic to roses, and nothing else, it seems)

Hove perfumier in New Orleans also makes wonderful blends and single-note fragrances that come both in cologne form and in a solid (beeswax and jojoba) that lasts FOREVER on my skin.

You might try Lancome's Tresor. It has a base of peach tones.
