POLL: How Many Bottles Of Perfume Do You Own?

The power of smell is a seriously amazing thing.  It can change your mood and affect your memory. So it’s no wonder that perfume is hugely important to women.


I bought Travis a bottle of cologne almost three years ago, and he wears it just about every day.  I love the way his scent lingers in our bathroom in the morning— it takes me back to when we were first dating.

I’ve been on the search for “my” scent for over a year now.  I was given a little bottle of yummy perfume by a friend, and now that it has almost run out, I’m feeling like I should spend some time shopping around to see if there’s anything else I’d rather invest in.  Unlike many girls, I don’t have hoards of perfume laying around my house.  I’ve never been able to commit to a scent long enough to warrant the purchase of an entire bottle.  But I have friends with a dozen different perfumes or more… what about you?

(Side note: I’m planning on buying a brand new perfume just for my wedding day, so that every time I wear it or smell it in the future, it will remind Travis and me of our special day!  I read about that somewhere and thought it was such a cool idea, so I’m stealing it!)

How many scents do you own (and how many do you actually wear)?  Do you wear perfume every day?  If so, do you switch up your scent regularly?  Any suggestions on a perfume I should try?

    My favorite perfumes are Coco Chanel and Burberry Summer. I don’t wear perfume as often as I’d like though. :-/

    I like scent and am frustrated by the number of places that ask you not wear any. My favorite changes from time to time and my new favorite that I’m crazy about is a frankinscense and amber scented oil that I bought at the local health food store (Aptos Natural Foods). I put it on the inside of my wrist so I can smell it whenever I want to and it always lifts my spirits.

    I like it so much that I special ordered a jar of mango butter with this scent from http://www.inesscents.com so I can smell good all over!!

    I find it EXTREMELY difficult to put on ENOUGH & NOT TOO MUCH perfume. Considering that some people are allergic to fragrances, I just don’t wear it. I also buy unscented deodorant. The body lotion I use is Vanilla scented. At least it smells like food…

    I own zero perfume bottles because the smell of it gives me headaches. But I’m all about essential oils! On my wedding day, I wore lavender to help me keep calm…it’s by far my favorite.
