Topic: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I have lately discovered, that my skin really doesn't like every perfume. I tried one perfume (Paris Hilton Sirene) 3 times, in different days, trying to figure out how it smells on my skin. There was practically no smell! I read the reviews here and was wondering.. My skin discriminates this perfume.. superglad

And another perfume, this time Champs Elysee, tried it about 3 times, too. I wanted to like it, because I had great time in Champs Elysee in spring.. but no. The perfume refuses to leave any smell on my skin. But I happened to spray it accidentally on my scarf, and it really had a nice, soft smell.

Any similar experiences?

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I had the same problem with few perfumes. What I did sometimes I used shower/bath gel that has similar smell to the perfume and after that I applied unfragrance body lotion/bodymilk to moisturize my skin followed by few spritz of the perfume. The result was much better compared than before.



But the weather/temperature, your skin acidity as well as your skin chemistry can affect its longevity as well. I noticed for some time in certain months, my perfume smells differently/tend to last longer/disappear quickly to my nose once they sits on my skin. Probably because of my hormone cycle  36

Leaves a very slight licorice smell that disappears almost instantly.

This one smelled delicate and lovely at bottle sniff and blotter test.  Sprayed it on my skin and detected a very faint jasmine/citrus scent.  Then, after about 5 minutes, I could hardly discern anything at all.  Very sad. Will not hold on my skin at all.

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I had a some what different experience with SDL. I first purchase a mini as this is a pricey perfume. The mini was wonderful so I then bought the big bottle. When it arrived it was a rainy day. Apparently the barrometric pressure was high and i could not smell the perfume at all just alkahal then nothing. Next day was much nicer weather and the scent was there.

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I think my skin rejected (for the first time) a perfume: http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.35.jpg Givenchy Hot Couture because I sprayed it on my wrist and it didnt smell like anything- no scent and after a while it smelled really bad, not like the "ht couture" i remember smelling on other people...weird

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

many times with lots of stuff. My skin is super dry,exept for the face.

I know I should use body lotions, but most of the time I'm just to lazy for that, or I don't like the oily "dirty" feeling of the body lotions, and I don't want to stain my clothes with it.

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

When I saw this one at the store http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1574.jpg Yves Saint Laurent Elle 

I jumped at the chance to try it. I had read the reviews here and had it in my want list. Sprayed it on, waited a bit, then smelled. I could smell something very faint. Smelled again after 5 minutes, nothing! I thought, ok maybe I haven't sprayed enough and tried again, still nothing. Well, took that off my want list straight away. A pity, because it sounded really good.

Perfumes up for swap in my had list.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.152.jpg Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline this remained also a secret to me. Cute bottle but is the scent really so light?

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

If you really love a fragrance when it changes with your skins oils, spray a light concentration on scarf(it may stain) or hair. I do this with fresh lemon fragrances for the summer.Naturally wear Samsara.

This stuck perfectly well on my clothes, but not on my skin. Almost instantly gone, even when I emptied half the sample.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.3592.jpg Calvin Klein Secret Obsession

Most CK perfumes stay about 24 hours on my skin, except for this one. It took more than 10 sprays to be able to smell anything at all and I had to reapply again after two hours.

When I'm good, I'm really good. When I'm bad, I'm better.

after 5 min I cant smell anything on my skin

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I found another one, that leaves me puzzled: http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2938.jpg Estée Lauder Sensuous . Tested it twice on my skin and could smell only a very light woody note,  and nothing stayed on my skin.

Many seem to like it, though. Same perfume on different people behaves differently. Like when my sister had bought Especially Escada same time with me, without knowing it, and I could not recognize it on her. It was like a different perfume.

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I think it's our noses and being anosmic rather than our skin. I sprayed enough http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.4094.jpg Jessica Simpson Fancy on to kill a diabetic but I couldn't smell ANYTHING! My roommate almost barreled over when I walked in the door. Same with http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.151.jpg Bvlgari Omnia which at least makes sense to me as I grew up around mill-work and lots of spicy woods my body had to defend itself.

New SWAP list here...

Re: Does your skin reject some perfumes?

I don't know for sure whether it's skin chemistry or being anosmic to the notes, but I cannot smell Victoria's Secret Naturals Blackberry and Tonka Bean mist at all, even after 15-20 sprays and I've given myself a headache from the alcohol content.
