So Many Fragrances

So my daughter must be a hard one to shop for, because this past Christmas she received SO MANY fragrances!  She said, "I must smell bad or something."  But I told her that perfumes are the "safe" gift for her, because we all know she likes body sprays and perfume and teens are hard to buy for anyway.  

Well, she received a total of 16 fragrances.  Funny that that's also the number of years she turned in December as well (total coincidence).  Sixteen!!!

This one is her current favorite, from Bath & Body Works.





I used to wear perfumes and body sprays before my youngest son was diagnosed with severe eczema, but nothing too strong, because I have pretty bad allergies.  He was (and still is) extremely allergic.  I can wear really light scents, and mostly fruity (those are the ones he can handle).  Floral and strong scents aren't good.  But my daughter wears her scents at school and by the time she gets home from school it's worn off enough.

Do you have a favorite fragrance?  Share it with a comment!  =0)

Speaking of fragrances, I've been wanting to get this new one I learned about from Melissa over at Bubby and Bean for my daughter to try.  It's called Tru Blooms, and it's made in Chicago.  Bubby and Bean is having a giveaway for the scent (wish me luck).  You can enter too!

Bath and Body Works body sprays are all fabulous. I haven't tried the Forever Red scent, but it looks pretty haha. My favorite is Victoria Secret Heavenly... it's a little stronger than most BABW formulas, but only a few sprays and it acts as regular perfume. Much cheaper than actually buying the $50 bottle... oh gosh, I'm so cheap. Anyways, folloing you on Blog Lovin, too! Have a great week!

I have worn Vanilla Fields by Coty for years. It's very inexpensive and the scent is subtle.

Sorry to hear about your son :( My son has eczema, allergies, asthma... but not that severe.

And that's so funny about your daughter, I remember I always used to get a ton of Bath And Body Stuff when I was younger too. Smells good though so I never complained haha

I used to wear perfumes all the time, but in recent years I don't too much anymore. I always loved clean scents and anything with vanilla.

Forever Red is my absolute FAVE. I actually work there and wear it EVERY DAY! I also love their Paris Amour.

I'm not a big perfume person and am really sensitive to smells, which is why I love Tru Blooms. Thank you so much for posting about it by the way! :)

I love anything that smells like lemons and citrus! It seems to be a popular fragrance lately, so there are a lot to choose from.

The Forever Red from Bath and Body is my new favorite. I love it because it is fruity and perfumy. I have a hard to time with sprays, but I love using the body washes. The scent is not too strong and seems to last.

I'm so picky when it comes to fragrance. I haven't worn perfume in years. I only let my husband wear one cologne and even that one I'm starting not to like anymore.
