    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.
