What are your wearing?~Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally

O.K., it's not a decorating or house post but thought it would be interesting. What kind of perfume are you wearing these days? I received a variety pack of Ralph Lauren perfumes for Christmas from my dear hubby this year. I had one in particular in the pack that I was interested in trying but wasn't sure. I had caught a wiff of it at Carraba's (I know the food is suppose to be more frangrant) on a waitress, and asked her what she was wearing. She said it was Ralph Lauren's "Blue".  Here's a pic of the little guy, even the bottle is pretty!
I love it!!! I have had several compliments on it. Here's everything that was in that pack....
The only thing it doesn't seem to last all day. Which is a bummer. Do you have any tricks on making perfume last longer? I've tried the lotion before and the powdering before. A co-worker said she loves the perfume, but on her it smells too musky. It's funny how the same perfume can smell different on different people. Ever had this happen? Interesting..... I love Bath & Body Works stuff, too!! I have worn a vareity of it from Warm Vanilla Sugar to Dancing Water.

My sister's favorite is Moonlight Path.

For awhile I was wearing "Nina" by Nina Ricci, but tends to go on strong then fade through out the day, but this one did seem to last.

I use to wear this one back in the day and  I still smell it on some women occassionally.
My friend even named her daughter "Ciara" after this cologne, she loved it that much!!! My daughter's favorites have been from Aeropostale. They smell good and are reasonably priced. They seem to last on her, too.
A very favorite of mine is Estee Lauder's Pleasures Delight.

I wore it for the longest time and still wear it on occassion. I always got compliments when wore it!... So what do you wear? Do you wear any at all? Let me know your opinion and share any fragrance secrets that you have. I will be joining Smiling Sally for her Blue Monday. I thought this suitable with my "Blue" perfume bottle. You can find more blue items and join in on the fun at her blog Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for doing this meme, this is my first time particpating in this party. I, also, want to mention some giveaways going on. Diann at the The Thrifty Groove is giving away two beautiful rooster chargers.

Hello Michelle, I like this post, lets see I get alot of complements when I wear Perry Ellis 360, But I also Like Alfred Dunner Sung, I used to wear Ralph Lauren along time ago I believe it was called Lauren. Anyway I have always heard to layer your scents. As for Bath and Body works I so love Moonlight Path....But It is so true how different perfumes smell on each person...Have a terrific week.

I like "Happy" by Clinique. Althought, I ought to try Nina since that is what my grandies call me! Linda

I do spritz on a little cologne everyday. It just makes me feel good. I usually use LaCoste. Perfume smells different on everybody due to your own unique body chemistry.

Happy Blue Monday..Luna

Oh this is cute...Happy blue Monday.

SmilingSally said...

That sounds like a scent I should be wearing...blue. I'll have to check it out.

I prefer wait staff NOT to wear fragrances as it interferes with the enjoyment of the food. (I do have an extremely sensitive nose.)

Happy 1st Blue Monday.

What a great variety of sweet smells for today. I have a hard time finding one that lasts all day. It has something to do with your body chemistry so they say.

Michelle, it is just me again. I participate in Pink Saturday each week. Our hostess for that day is Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. She is a lovely lady and you would enjoy her blog. She suggest each Saturday we feature someone we have not visited before. Since this is my first visit with you, I would like to feature you on this coming Pink Saturday.

Interesting post. I love to wear fragrances but tend to wear them only in the summer months as my skin is very sensitive and dry. I have several brands of fragrances but my current favorite is Crisp Petals, an Eddie Bauer fragrance.

Cindy said...

Great post! I love the picture of your Ralph Lauren bottles, so pretty. I wear Ange ou Demon by Givency. For a long time, I wore Obsession by Calvin Klein.
You are so blessed to have red hair in your family. I love red hair so much that after each of 5 babies I looked really close to see if I could detect red hair. Never happened, LoL.
Blessings,
Cindy
