Which Perfume/Aftershave do you use?

I ask the above because I don't see the point in paying over the top for fragrances.
I am not working so money like for most people is tight.
I have always used 
Marks and Spencer Mens Fragrances.
They smell expensive and some are delightful to smell.

So what would you recommend? Thanking you

    I use whatever people buy me for Christmas, or whatever my partner brings home from her job (she sometimes gets those sorts of things as freebies). Honestly, I have no idea what brand / fragrance they are :D

    Marks and Spencer’s  soliel homme 
    lit was some kind of seasonal special which unfortunately can’t be bought now. It’s a great shame because it’s delightful, and I mean that in a manly way of course. Huc hum.

    I buy the lynxx aftershave daily fragrence. they only cost £6 and are my favourite. I'm not really one for spending lots on aftershave.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.

    There are many different perfumes I like...at the moment I'm wearing Si.

    I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to perfume and wouldn't touch a  'celebrity' brand with a barge pole...

    Having said that I've had a couple of fakes in the past which I thought were pretty good...lol

    I have expensive taste. My all time favourite perfume is J'adore Dior. Expensive but smells beautiful and you only need a very small amount each time so it does last quite a while.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    When i have a shave i use Old Spice and have done for over 45 years, when it comes to using something to smell good i have three favourites, Aramis and Paco Rabbanne  both of which I have also used for over 45 years and more recently Roger and Gallet and whilst not cheap they last me for a long time.

    Two main Favourites.

    Gucci's Gorgeous Gardenia and Dior's Hypnotic Poison.
    I have a lot of different fragrances but always find myself going back to these two in particular. 

    I always appreciate a whiff of fine fragrance on others too.. ?

    Ooh, I love hypnotic poison too, also the pure and original...
    Poison is definitely one of those marmite ones I find...

    Ahh the original 80's fragrance -  Poison @Cress
    you could always smell it at least 5 minutes before the person wearing it came in to the room! Along with Giorgio by Beverly Hills.. That stuff was absolutely lethal! And my Mum loved it. ?

    I have 2 perfumes from Calvin Klien one called Eternity and the other called Eternity moment. Although I do love Chanel. I have Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel it is an exclusive luxuriant brand the women love. 

    Does anyone think that vegan perfumes/colognes are much better and eco-friendly? Please share your opinions. 

    I myself would love to own a collection of vegan perfumes as I own 3 vegan body fragrances and 5 vegan perfumes and I love them. 

    My sister loves Paco Rabanne perfumes and they're her favourite brand.

    I have Gucci Bloom perfume. My husband got me it for my birthday 2 years ago. It’s still my favorite perfume, actually. As for the aftershave, I usually take my husband’s Dior Sauvage, but don’t tell him, please, shhh.

    Oh dear, I am going to be in so much trouble as personally I cannot stand chemically induced smells.  You may think you smell lovely, but actually you are so insecure that you need a "fragrance" to get you through the day.  I have a daily shower, and I smell natural and don't offend anyone with these ridiculously over-priced and highly advertised perfumes. I was in a hotel once and some stupid bimbo came in to the dining room reeking of "perfume". Everyone got up and moved away. We are in a cost of living crisis and still people are going to buy scent (chemicals) at ridiculous cost. I think only a very stupid woman would thank her husband for an £85 bottle of rubbish.

    That said, I admit that before I became chemically sensitive I too was a stupid person, but at least I had good taste and wouldn't buy something like YSL Opium Black. I bought the original YSL for men (no longer available) and Chanel No: 5.

    I don't wear perfume of any type. All I ask is that those of you who do wear perfume, please keep it to a minimum. It really does make me feel very ill.
