Fragrance Suggestions

Hi Ladies,

I was hoping you might be able to come up with some fragrance suggestions. My husband really wants to buy me some perfume or cologne for Valentine's Day. I ran out of the stuff I wear around Thanksgiving and he wanted to get me something new for Christmas. Well, I went looking three different times and came home with a raging headache. I've become super sensitive to smells the last 4 months. It's worse than when I was pregnant. I think I may be entering peri-menopause( I'm almost 43). I did find one option by Philosophy that had a "clean" smell that didn't make me sick. My husband has requested three different options and then he would pick which one he liked.

I've told him I really don't need a present but he always looks at me like I'm hurting his feelings. I don't really want chocolates since I need to lose about 80lbs and I've been able to maintain some will power. I have drawers full of jewelry I don't wear. I have mild cerebral palsy and can't really put it on. I do wear it on the weekends when he can help me. I apologize for chattering on and getting away from my original request. Thanks so much!

I am sensative to perfumes and also on a diet. So I understand. For my birthday hubby got me fuzzy socks and a coupon for a pamper day. It was perfect

Fuzzy socks are nice! And a day at the spa is a plus =)
I love both ideas!

I am also super sensitive, and I absolutely love Elizabeth Arden's Provacitive Woman, I've been wearing it for years.

Have you smelled Victoria's secret sexy little things noir? Its a light clean scent. It comes in a body mist, that can be a lot easier to handle for those sensitive than perfume is.

 I can't believe I'm about to put this out in the universe but Britney Spears Fantasy is awesome!  It's so light and refreshing. I can't tell you how embarrassed I get when people ask me what I'm wearing....LOL
