-What are your favorites?
As a Christmas gift, I got a bottle of Burberry, which I've been quite entranced with. Burberry themselves describe it as a "floral, fruity fragrance - the fresh and sensual scent includes top notes of black currant, green apple, peach and marigold." I would say the smell of marigold is most predominant, but those with a keen sense of smell can certainly make out the rest of the proposed scents. Before that, I was a regular user of Cool Water - described as "a sharp, flowery fragrance, a blend of citrus, pineapple, and woody notes, and accompanied by the scent of the pure ocean air." For a while there, Cool Water was my signature scent.
-Do you use them on a daily basis? Or just on special occasions?
Back in my school days, using perfume was like a daily ritual - could never leave the house without some on me. Never a full, direct spray, though - I've always done the "shoot in the air, let the mist fall on me" method. I've got a pretty strong sense of smell, and breathing a full shot on me all day would irritate me to no end - not to mention everyone else. Hey, there's something to be said for subtlety, right?
Nowadays, I'll put on perfume if I remember to. More often than not, I'm running out the door, and it's the last thing I'll forget to do.
-Even if you don't wear it, are there any particular fragrances that you like, cologne or perfume?
As far as men's cologne, I generally like the muskier-scented ones. Ralph Lauren's Classic Polo, Christian Dior's Fahrenheit, and Chanel's Pour Monsieur. I really don't take to the "sweet", "floral," or even "spicy" scented fragrances, like Polo Sport, Cool Water for Men, and CK1. Sorry guys, if you're going to use cologne, a man's got to smell like a man all the way. ;)
