I love it and it loves me. I wear it day and night, summer and winter. But my secret is one short spray after my shower, never ever heavy. I like my perfume to be only noticeable when someone is close enough to kiss my cheek – and they always comment how lovely my perfume is.

I used to wear my mother’s Arpege when I’d go on dates in my teens (I’m 60 now – but still a teen at heart sometimes). I’ve often thought I’d like to get a bottle and now your post reminded me of it all over again. God bless you ladies!

I am an admitted “smell good” addict. My husband is constantly complaining about the dozens of perfumes and body sprays cluttering our bathroom cabinets, but I just cannot help myself! For several years now, I have been plagued with the loss of my absolute favorite scent: Magnolia Blossom by Bath & Body Works. It was my signature scent–literally the only fragrance I wore, until it was discontinued by B&BW. According to a couple of Internet pages, top notes were peach blossom and pear; mid notes were magnolia petals, honeysuckle, jasmine, and rose; base notes were amber, musk, and white sandalwood. The product can still be found on eBay, Amazon, and the like, but the perfume or body spray will cost you no less than $100. Since the devastating news that the fragrance line was being discontinued, I have been searching far and wide for a comparable scent. To date, I have been totally, frustratingly, unsuccessful. If anyone familiar with the scent has any advice, or alternatives, you have my full attention. I am going to check out the basenotes.net page referenced in a comment above. However, if anyone else has any advice as to an alternate fragrance to try, based on the notes listed above, please let me know.

I have always described my fragrance preference as “clean,” “powdery,” “fresh.” After reading your fantastic post, I understand I lean more towards soft floral and aromatic fougere. Some of my favorites are “Inner Grace” by Philosophy (“clean” is the best way to describe this scent–very much “fresh from the shower”), Cashmire Mist by Donna Karan (powdery) , Very Irresistible by Givenchy (this is the scent on which I most often receive compliments), Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Brilliance by Jessica McClintock (very floral–this scent is much more rose-scented than my norm, but I have inexplicably loved it from the start), and Heavenly by Victoria’s Secret (old go-to from my college days that I have just recently begun wearing again). Glad to know there actually are people out there as fragrance-oriented as I am!

These scents depends on my mood, the season, and the weather. My main scent is musk/woody. I have not used it in many years. The second scent is spicy and third scent is between citrus/floral. I just started to rewear my musk and my new husband does not like it and my children (17 and 18) who never been around me when I did wear musk, likes it on me. Now the questions are it because of his nose? Or should I ditch the musk?

It smells awful out of the bottle, but 15 minutes on my skin and it changes to a delicious musk. It is rather dark and rich, so these days I only use it in winter. Top Notes: Mandarin, Neroli, Galbanum. Middle Notes: Rose, Jonquil, Jasmine. Base Notes: Vanilla, Vetiver, Musk. That said, I always come to the same notes for my warm season perfumes. If you want to know what notes are in your perfume, to help find that essential perfect YOU: check out basenotes.net. Their explainations can help you recognize what note haunts you in all your favorite perfumes, so that you can find the one perfume that has it all!
