    ...White flowers, woods, fresh cut grass or herbal.....

    but no patchouli or fruits, except citrus.

    Lighter rather than overpowering.... I don't like to smell someone coming, before I see them..... or have then lingering after they are gone.

    For my fave perfume, it's a toss-up between fruity smell and flowery smell; maybe a flowery smell because actual fruits don't smell like the perfumes we buy since they use artificial scents. For cologne, I'd have to go with the spice smell, that's way better than a woodsy smell because I think a wood smell would get old very fast and spices have a variety of smells. I like my smell to be light, too because strong perfume is very annoying.

    I used to custom-blend perfumes, so it all depends what mood I am in, I have lots of fragrances,,,, but for commercial ones, I like Fendi and First, and DK Cashmere, Victoria's Secret ~ Angel,,,, I like Malaia from Hollister,, I just found that by accident.

    I like the essential oil Vetiver,, that is very woodsy, hard to find a really good pure one though,,,and Opium Perfume in that range.

    Great fun question !

    I usually go for a light fruity scent. My current favorite is a coconut lime body mist that I got from Bath and Body Works.

    i like physique sprays better than physique spray because of the fact some perfumes are too stable. I additionally love fruity scents so as this is yet one greater reason i elect physique sprays. however the only physique spray i like are Clinique satisfied, Beyonce actual celebrity, JLo Miami
