60. What do you think of perfume? Do you wear it?

I have anosmia so I can't smell it. I could when I was younger and I remember liking perfume then, but I can't remember how that felt now. I think it usually contains toxic chemicals and I would be very careful about what my perfume was made of if I wore it now. I think it can be inconsiderate to other people to wear it because you never know who around you has allergies or hates certain scents, and the way people wear it is usually overpowering. My parents always get headaches from other people's perfume or cologne so that factored into my awareness about perfume. I like a lightly scented lotion made from non-harmful ingredients. I have a pretty holistic view of these types of things and the knowledge that your skin absorbs anything you put on it. If you wouldn't feel comfortable eating your perfume (because of the chemicals/effect on your health-not the taste) then it's probably not great for your body when it absorbs into your bloodstream.

I save my perfume only for special occasions. As much as I agree that perfume is a lovely addition to enhance your presence while dressing up, I also believe that we should not get very much used to/ dependent on it.

I love perfume and wear it every day.

I love perfume. I get mine from So..

I wear organic, ethical perfume and have said goodbye to nice luxury brands that put the planet and its inhabitants in grave danger (too bad, because I loved them, they smelled nice)

Yeah I love perfume

I think perfume is an accessory. I wear Amor Amor by Cacharel.

Perfume used to trigger migraines in me, so I avoided it, but it doesn't anymore and so I've developed an interest in perfume as this whole new world has opened up.

I like gourmand fragrances, with notes of lavender, honey and vanilla, but they are too heavy for the summer, when I like fresher, woodier fragrances. Lush make a perfume called Breath of God that smells like a bonfire by the beach with a forest just being you, that I like in hotter weather.

CK One and Davidoff Cool Water remind me of a good period in my life.

No I don't wear parfume. I do not like to much. In my 30ies I used Aftershave. But not now (I am in my 50ies) I try to smell neutral.

I love perfume but I find it really hard to get one which lasts on my skin, and which I like the smell of on my skin. I can generally find perfume which falls into one or other of the categories but not both.

I can't afford it. I wish I could.

I like it alright, in moderation. I wear this amazing citrusy scent all the time.

No. But it's not the worst.
