    Default Any suggestions based on my favourites?: Lauren, No.5 & Sexual

    What a fantastic resource! I am so excited to have found this site

    I was hoping for suggestions of fragrances based on similarity to those I know do work for me. I get migraines and that narrows my scent choices but I am able to wear Lauren by Ralph Lauren (the original vintage scent is my all time favorite), Chanel No.5 and Sexual and I love L'air Du Temps but it smells like my mom so i don't feel right wearing it[/URL].

    I'm 39 so I have tried many, many scents of the 80's and 90's. After that I just gave up and stuck mostly to Lauren but I really prefer the original and it is outrageously expensive if you manage to find it.

    Just a few I have tried that cause a strong negative reaction:
    Burburry Brit
    Lola -Mark jacobs
    Cool Water-Davidoff
    Anais Anais -Cacharel
    Eternity -Calvin Klein
    Most Estee Lauder

    Warm scents (rose, jasmine, sandalwood) seem to work best for me and sharp and fruity do not. When I go shopping to try new fragrances I am very quickly overwhelmed and most often leave with a headache. I would love to have a list of fragrances to bring with me next time.

    Any one up for the challenge?

    I have a friend prone to fragrance induced headaches, and she wears Jovan White Musk. I know it's a cheapie, but it works on her. I personally find Coco by Chanel to very warm and soothing. It's my go-to comfort scent.

    Welcome to Basenotes! A lot of people who get migraines from fragrances often have luck with fragrance oils, so that may be another avenue to check out. Some brands you might want to try are Madini, Kuumba Made, Attar Bazaar, Auric Blends - you can often find these in health food stores, Whole Foods and the like, as well as online. There are tons of e-tailers as well like Ava Luxe, Sonoma Scent Studio, Cherry Blossom Diva, CJScents, etc.
