    Default Fragrances I'm ashamed to admit I like (guilty pleasures)

    Drumroll please...

    Mine are (ahem) those 'by' Britney Spears. All but one of them.

    Oh, and Pink Sugar.

    I am now officially on a mission to sniff out Can Can.

    Fantasy by Britney is a real guilty pleasure of mine, it smells like these dolls my sister had that turned into cupcakes, not that I played with dolls as a kid...

    Oh God yes, my SotD was in fact Paris Hiltons Can Can.
    Funny you should mention it, Oolala!
    Other than that I like Britney's Curious, I'm not a big fan
    of her Fantasy line, but that first one still rocks my world.

    Other than that I still looove Sunflowers by Arden, I never
    wear it, but I love it. It takes me back, waaay back!

    In the right mood, I really like fresh watery aquatics. I know they smell like cleaning products, but I don't care! I used to love The Body Shop's Oceanus, especially the bath oil. I should really give Cool Water a sniff -- I never have.

    I like J.Lo's Deseo, but I'm not especially ashamed of that. It smells really summery and good to me.

    I have got to try Paris Hilton Can Can now! Lately, I like Gale Hayman's Delicious Cotton Candy. I have Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, and I love its juicy fruity syrupyness in hot summer weather, but I've yet to try Fantasy. I would probably like that. I also love Jessica Mcclintock, Provocative Woman by Elizabeth Arden, and I keep a Jovan Musk Oil and a Coty Wild Musk oil just in case I'm in the mood for those.

    A few of my guilty pleasure scents come from the Home Shopping Network, which is a teeny bit embarrasing (I guess I've always had the blind buy risk gene- but they can be returned to HSN, unlike Evil-bay).
    Goddess by Marilyn Miglin, and Acqua Serena by Perlier are the names.

    I also enjoy a few scents with manly names and hope no one asks me what I'm wearing when I have them on- Eau du Coq and Le Troisiemme Homme particularly.

    LOL my co-workers would think I am nuts to avoid or be embarrased by celebrity scents- they already think I am insane by seeking out pricey unpronounceables when there are "really nice" perfume lines like D&G, JLo, and Baby Phat available everywhere. I must admit, now I must sniff Can Can

    Edited to add: Elizabeth Arden Provocative Interlude is another guilty pleasure.

    Not that I feel shame over any of my scents, but ones that are rarely mentioned; perhaps it is the thrifty price tag peut-etre.

    Ciara (100 strength) by Revson

    KooKai Oui-non and others

    Morgan de toi

    Charlie (original not a flanker)

    Wind Song

    Aviance

    many more, but those are the first ones that pop into my mind.

    Like Brielle, I admit a certain fondness for Charlie. A friend of mine (NOT a perfumista!) wears it and she smells just wonderful. I don't wear it often, but once in a while I indulge, for old times' sake.

    I wore Charlie back in the day, but if you knew that one the current one just doesn't deliver. I like Charlie White very much, however. It's a fruity floral, and fruity florals are my guilty secret entire genre, not that I really care to keep it a secret. Obviously.

    Mariabar, I sampled Diesel Fuel for Life last year and was very impressed by it. I also sampled and loved Beckham Signature for Women at the same time (they were freebie samples thrown into my Ulta shopping bag). Now the Beckham one I do find a little bit embarrassing to admit to, but it smells very nice!

    I don't really feel embarassed by any of my fragrances choices but I suppose Kate Moss Vintage is the most fitting for this thread. Not because it's a celebrity perfume but more for the fact that I despise Kate Moss herself, I really am not a fan! But I do enjoy Vintage's lightly powdery quality, it meshes well with my skin and garners a lot of compliments. Plus I think the bottle is very pretty

    Vintage Chantilly is sensational! That little hint of evergreen (juniper maybe?) and the leather in the base makes it rather grand, IMO.

    As for SJP Lovely, I was unimpressed at first too. In fact I could not smell it at all, except for wisp of musk. I tried it again later and find it much better, I have always surmised that the first batch I sniffed was spoilt.

    B&BW White tea and Ginger is fabulous in the summer.

    I suppose I can understand the sheepishness that might come from wearing a "cheesy" celebuscent, but I really don't get why there would be any shame attached to wearing and enjoying a fragrance that's inexpensive. I've always worn Avon scents proudly - it's never occurred to me to be ashamed of them just because they're affordable. (Yves Rocher scents are very affordable, but people don't seem to be ashamed of them - is it because they're French?)

    Anyway, I've recently discovered that I love Fancy by Jessica Simpson! (It reminds me a lot of Euphoria, actually....with a sweet and creamy pink cupcake at the heart!) That doesn't really shame me either, but I do have a bit of a giggle when I get a compliment or inquiry about it. Same with Pink Sugar. I think it's the fluffy pink and frilly over-the-top girliness of these that makes me feel a bit silly, and the fact that these get so many more comments than my much more "respectable" perfumes. But I'm happy to wear them, and happy to admit it when I do!

    Don't get me wrong, there are definitely scents I won't go near because I don't like or respect the celebrity associated with them (I hear you TheLipPrint) but if I do sniff and like and buy, then I'll happily own up. Actually I have a mini of With Love...Hillary Duff (!!) on the way to me now, and I have every reason to believe I'm going to love it! I'm also intrigued by lilybelle's Delicious Cotton Candy....but yeesh, that bottle!!

    Btw, blkbrd, I've always been under the impression that WE are the tastemakers!!

    Default Fragrances you feel you 'shouldn't' like but secretly do...

    I had a bit of a experience recently. I walked past a young woman who I thought smelled very nice, so I asked her what she was wearing (as you do - I always do this nowadays because I know it'll bug me forever if I don't).

    Turned out to be Armani Diamonds.

    I tried some on my arm and it was okay; like pleasant deodorant smell. Somehow that girl made it sing. It was a hot and sweaty day and the scent radiated around her very beautifully.

    I'm only pulling faces because I generally approach over-advertised celeb scents with caution. I do own some though, so I know occasionally there are pleasant surprises.

    Please tell me that some of you have had this kind of experience?

    Well, I rediscovered 5th Avenue about a year ago on the mother of one of my son's classmates. I recall thinking, "She smells great, and I know that classic scent. Could it be 'Envy'?" But it was 5th Avenue. And I now own some. And like it. It's an old school shampoo-ey, soapy, aldehydic thing.

    Speaking of Elizabeth Arden, I also kind of like 'Pretty'.

    5th Avenue isn't too bad actually. I used to work for Elizabeth Arden ages ago, so I tend to avoid the Arden scents because they take me back to being behind the counter

    Speaking of Elizabeth Arden, I also kind of like 'Pretty'.
    I like EA fragrances too the clerks at two P/x es (military department store)were always very kind ! 5th avenue is on my To buy list.
    Which do you like Hillare, Pretty or Pretty cologne ? They have slightly different notes.I've got the cologne.
