    Default Your family members' scents

    My fam's not too big on scents (I'm the only junkie I guess) but methinks I'm getting to both my sisters heehee. Just curious on what your family / significant other uses (and putting only their most commonly used scents, to keep the replies short and interesting hehe)

    Dad : for a long time, Quorum and Aqua Quorum
    now Hugo Boss Soul
    (I will soon nick the Adolfo Dominquez Vetiver I gave him coz he doesn't use it! Grr!)
    Mom : those just-like (blank) scents. Ugh. She says designer frags are too strong for her
    Sister 1 : Tommy Girl
    She's taking the Bar exams for 4 weekends this month, so I let her use my Nautica Blue coz she likes it so much
    Sister 2 : Gap Dream and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea
    Brother : Versace Blue Jeans

    Grandfather (late) - Eau Sauvage
    Mum - Used White Linen regularly in the past, but now she just uses my stuff because I urge her to , she prefers mainly CK Be and Hermes Hiris. I think she is sick of fragrance because of me
    Aunt - CK Eternity (ladies'). I never tell her, but I really dislike that scent!

    I think I'm literally the only person in my family who ever wears scents.

    Mom doesn't like them, dad doesn't even think about them, sister just isn't into them. I don't recall smelling anything on any members of my extended family, however I do remember seeing an old bottle of Old Spice in my late grandfather's cabinet once. My cousin has a bottle of something, but it sits abandoned in his parents' house.

    I wish they were into it!

    My sister and I are the only ones in the family who really wear fragrances. My mom has an old bottle of Chanel No. 22 but she hardly ever wears it. My dad uses Old Spice but most other fragrances irritate him.

    I dunno what my sister wears now but in high school she had bottled of Calvin Klein Escape and Emporio Armani She.

    Dad - He has about 15-20 bottles. Most are the usual woody/fresh/aquatic designer stuff. The better ones IMO are Dunhill Edition, Gucci Pour Homme and Versace L'Homme.

    Mum - Has about 10 bottles last time i checked. Her frags are kept in the drawer so i don't really get a chance to see. But i know she has Chanel No.5, Estee Lauder Pleasures Intense and Dior Poison and Ralph Lauren Safari.

    Brother: Azzaro Chrome and CK One Summer 2006. Recently found out he had a few samples but he doesn't want to share

    Grandmother (late): Chanel No.5 and Elizabeth Arden Red Door. She was a great fan of Yardley powders and soap

    I remember my Father wearing the usual frags most working class men his age wore. Brut, English Leather, Canoe and then when I got Older he upgraded to this new (then) frag called Paco Rabbane Pour Homme) smelled great on him, like it was made for him. Then he also wore Polo and others, what we now call classics. He got me my first Polo for my 17th birthday because I was using his stock. lol we still laugh about it. My Mom wore Tabu and White Linen. She always smelled nice. I'm the Oldest but I have 3 sisters amd 1 Brother. My oldest sister wears Coco Channel, mt 2nd sister wears Tommy Girl, my 3rd sister wears Dior Addict. My Brother wears Cool Water and Paco XS. My ex wife wore Coco Channel and Madamoiselle

    Father - from what I remember, I saw bottles of Brut, Paco Rabbane, Polo green. but now he wears nothing but Marks & Spencer's Woodspice body splash. it's great, and goes really well with cigarette smoke.

    Mom- No idea. lol

    Older brother: I Used to steal from him when I was about 12, I'd bring his bottles of EL Pleasures, Fahrenheit and I think it was Giorgio Beverly hills, I don't remember, the first two are still on my top 5 I'd say...

    Younger brothers - they share, unwillingly (they'd rotate their frags with each other's) Lacoste style in play and Clinique Happy. what a fruity bunch.

    Younger sister - she has a bunch of frags, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Bulgari Omnia, Ck Be, some INCANTOs, D&G Light blue, etc. she has bvlgari aqua, and I tried it and loved it, bought a bottle myself.
    LF: CAP/LID for Creed Original vetiver and Creed Millesime Imperiale, 75ml. Please pm me.. Thanks!

    Dad: Butch, chemical, screechy, overthetop, fresh, generic scents. And he douses himself everytime

    Mom: Amazing taste. Has an affinity for the ultra-weird. I once smelled her Tubereuse Criminelle and La Myrrhe. She told me to go buy them right away!!! She also loves the classic chypres (Private Collection, Rose de Nuit, etc). She looooves Jean Claude Ellena. She has everything from the Hermessence line. She hates everything from Tom Ford except Moss Breches. She loves Plus Que Jamais and Metalys. She looooves powdery fragrances. Hates loud florals (Lipstick Rose, Sarrasins), and loud orientals (Musc Ravageurs, Eau Noire). She also likes incense frags (Bois d'ences, Epic Woman). However she loves (and has) all the Amouages. Her current favorite is Oranger Alhambra (go figure). She's a verrry modest sprayer. 3 sprays is way too much for her, even if it's something light like 28 La Pausa or Apres L'ondee. God bless her for blessing my obse...uh...hobby

    Brother: Loves almost everything I have except Amber Absolute, Eau Noire and Miel de Bois.

    Baby brother (9): Loves Diorling with a passion!!! We have a future perfumista on our hands

    And the ENTIRE family loves OUD (except me!)

    All in all, I'm pretty blessed to have a family that loves fragrances, and support whatever stupid decision I intend to waste my money on

    Not too much research. I have two sisters and a brother and my parents and inlaws. The only thing I know are my brother, Fendi Uomo and my FIL, Old Spice and my mother Chanel No. 5. Obviously, since most of us here are collectors, I have like 23 different frags. When I visited my brother in Georgia I showed him my Basenotes warddrobe page.....he seemed....surprised, like: Jeez dude, WTF!!!

    I really like this topic because it brings back alot of memories! Almost everyone in my family was a scent junkie, and my grandfather's favorite scent is one of mine as well! Everyone had a good collection but I'm just going to list their favorites.

    Dad: Cool Water, Chanel Egoiste
    Mom: Montana, the original in the red box
    Grandmother: Lu Air Du Temps (I know I spelled that wrong)
    Grandfather: I think I got my tastes from him, he loved bold scents! Monogram by Ralph Lauren was his favorite, along with Pasha by Cartier and Havana! Havana and Pasha became two of my favorite scents!

    Today is my birthday, and if I could have anything today, it would be the ability to have dinner with my grandfather again.

    no one in my family(if extended, a lot of my cousins have more than a few bottles and some of my aunts always be smelling lovely!) is really into perfume. my mom has some, she has "mom" scents which i dont think she uses often, my dad don't use anything and my sister has been using paris hilton the original and Happy for a LONG time now. My sister pretty much hates every cologne with the exception of Dior Fahrenheit. I don't really use my bottle so i gave it to her to use

    My mom wears white linen, since, forever. It was always her and her sisters favorite. I did make progress by taking to her a Bond 9 shop and she fell in love with Harrods for her. I have since tried to get her to try more things but she says she isn't buying another perfume for years after spending what she spend on Harrods .

    My dad has had the same bottle of Polo for about two decades now, he wears it very rarely. I think it's time to change that, I'm trying to get him to wear Vetiver but not sure if thats going to work...

    My sis wears Daisy and she nabbed a bottle of Happy from her friend, but the next bottle she's getting is going to be a gift from me, and it will be niche .

    My Grandma wore Joy when she was younger, a rich man used to buy it for her to try to win her over. She wore Red Door for a while until she decided that she was allergic to all fragrances. Now she wears the natural perfumes I make.

    My other G-ma wore 1872 for women by Clive, until she realized she didn't really like it... Now she also wears what I make her. I took her to the CB I Hate perfume gallery and now she wears Smokey Tobacco only on cold days with her leather jacket.

    I was at my aunt and uncle's house this weekend for a get-together and while I was looking through their bathroom for a band-aid (the cat bit me...haha), I discovered a bottle of Opium. I sprayed a couple shots on my wrist - so that's what my aunt always smells like! I've smelled this stuff on her for years, but since I had never actually knowingly smelled Opium before I had no idea. I think it's great on her but this pretty much means I would never be able to wear Opium myself since it will always just make me think of my aunt. That was a fun discovery though.

    Good thread!

    Father: Him and I have an eternal fight going on, that in my estimation will never end (we're both too stubborn). He believes that fragrance is for women only, that women don't want to smell a man that smells like a women, and that the only reason that men's fragrance exists is because it's the industries way of trying to make men effeminite. He won't change his mind, it's soap (dial, irish spring etc.) and his own "musk".

    Mom: Estee Lauder Beautiful and Vera Wang

    Brother: All of my stuff Though he does have an affinity towards stuff I don't really like anymore (L'Homme and Wall Street)

    Sister: Don't know.

    No other real perfumista...
    My mom doesnt loathe perfume but doesnt love either, has got a few bottles on the shelf but I have never ever smelled anything (but i dont complain, its where i got my Eau the vert, Caleche and Opium Pour femme from ), Baby Brother is somewhat pleased with what i gave him (Coolwater Happy Summer, Silver Shadow Altitude, Dior Homme Sport , Lynx Click and the to come Blue Jeans) but thats pretty much it.

    No colognisseur family...
