    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.

    You know, I want to hunt down Can Can for a test spritz too! Lots of endorsements here. Usually really sweet candyish stuff makes me feel a little queasy, but it sounds like it's not as sweet as all that.

    None. Honestly, if I found a fragrance I loved that was a drugstore or celebuscent, I'd be praising it to the skies! I don't care where the juice comes from, as long as it smells good.

    back when kenzo ph and fahrenheit were overly popular I was ashamed to even wear them.
    I've never stopped using adidas sport, but I wouldn't easily admit it.

    Jovan Musk Oil, Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds & RED by Georgio Beverly Hills. I don't own any more of the last two but I do still have the Jovan.

    Elizabeth Taylor Passion parfum, Diamonds and Rubies and Diamonds and Sapphires which is a muskier version, IMO, of Estee Lauder's Dazzling Silver.

    My new interest in the Dali scents has me baffled as well.

    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.

    A quote from Robin at Now Smell This, re: getting free perfume samples, really applies to this whole topic as well:
    If you have no shame (and why have shame?)
    That just says it all, as far as I'm concerned!

    It was actually your post in the SOTD thread that helped me to 'come out' about my love for Can Can. If it weren't for you I'd still be ashamed to admit my feelings for Can Can. LOL

    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.

    I wore Anais Anais back in the day and a couple of months ago I bought a bottle...I still love it! I guess it's less that it's embarrassing in and of itself, but "back in the day" was like 25 years ago...

    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!
