Perfume is a popular gift, but I think it's hard to buy a scent for someone unless you are sure they already wear it. Fragrance is so personal. But one year I got Flower by Kenzo and I ended up really liking the powdery floral scent.

I never really considered myself a perfume girl, until I thought back and realized that I've been wearing fragrances for a long time -- and it all started with Love's Baby Soft.

I moved on to Essential Oils and yet always wore a scented body lotion -- I used to love the cucumber melon from Victoria's Secret, but they discontinued it. (Anyone else miss it like I do?)

A few years ago, I was obsessed with BCBGirls Nature by Max Azria -- it was a clean tangerine and amber scent.

And now I am really into the soft apple, sandalwood, and magnolia scent of Be Delicious by DKNY.

When hautemama83 asked CafeMoms what fragrance they wear, she was looking for change. She wore Victoria's Secret Very Sexy, a blend of vanilla and blackberry, but wanted something new.

Christine0813 and BrandonsMom100 love the fresh floral of Pleasures by Estee Lauder.

The citrusy Clinique Happy and the pear/vanilla infused Britney Spears Curious also got multiple mentions. Lots of people love Britney's scent -- I really want to sample it now!

What's your favorite scent?
