Fragrances – Facebook Poll Results

Fragrances – What to wear? Which scent represents me? Which scent will leave a lasting, positive impression?

Chanel No. 5 and Hermes Rue du Faubourg have been the main two fragrances I have worn for most of my adult life.  Two others that come to mind are Loves Baby Soft, as a kid, and Bijan in High School. (Funny enough, I still have the box and use it to hold buttons). I own a few other fragrances and occasionally apply.  However, I do often wonder what is popular and what am I missing as the options seem endless.  So in an attempt to get some clarity I asked a local Women’s Facebook group, “What is your favorite fragrance?”  I received and great response and here are the results…wish I could provide you all of the delicious scents too!! (And, BIG thanks to the participants!)

CHANEL fragrances were overall the most popular (Chance, No. 5, No. 19, Allure, Christalle, and Coco Mademoiselle all mentioned).  However, the champion with the most mentions was…

CHANEL Coco Mademoiselle  “Sexy, fresh oriental fragrance recalls the irrepressible spirit of the young Coco Chanel. An elegant, luxurious scent in a classic signature bottle, perfect for the dressing table or for traveling. Notes: bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks, vanilla.”

A close second was one of my longtime favorites…

CHANEL No. 5   “The now and forever fragrance. The ultimate in femininity.  The most powerful, concentrated and long-lasting form of fragrance; the fullest expression of the perfumer’s art.”

Surprisingly, there was an eleven way tie for the 3rd most popular fragrance among this Facebook group.

Jo Malone London fragrances received many mentions (Orange Blossom, Wild Fig & Cassis and Grapefruit). However, the most votes were for…

Jo Malone’s French Lime Blossom  “Inspired by a stroll along the Champs Élysées, French Lime Blossom is a romantic, full-bodied floral. The scent of sweet lime blossoms with a twist of bergamot and tarragon is evocative of the first day of spring.”
