my current fragrance rotation

I have always loved perfume.  I've worn perfume as long as I can remember.  When I was young, my Dad would bring it back for me & my mom from Duty Free when he would travel.  My parents often buy me fragrance as gifts - and I usually have half a dozen or more on rotation.  Sometimes I have a signature scent that I'll wear every day for months - and sometimes I switch it up daily.  I started as a pre-teen with the standard Love's Baby Soft and Exclamation and moved into Clinque from there.

At the moment I am wearing mostly these scents.  And I have to say that since roller balls started coming out more and more - I keep a larger rotation of perfumes on hand.  They are usually around $20, they take no space at all, and I can carry them in my purse or carry on bag when I travel.  They are also a great way to try out a scent on a smaller scale before you commit to the full bottle.  Not that I don't repurchase roller balls:  this is my 3rd bottle of Stella by Stella McCartney.

Roller balls started out as gifts-with-purchase and were promoted as a way to carry your scent with you for touch ups.  They really got popular in recent years (probably for the reasons I've mentioned) and Sephora took off with the concept.  Many of the ones I have are exclusive to Sephora.  They even have a "roller ball" subcategory under their fragrance section.  They recently had a 3x the points event for fragrance so I added some of the ones below at that time.

I think Chloe is my absolute favourite at the moment.  I am also in love with Nirvana White.  I had quite a few samples of Nirvana White & Black before Christmas and I got to love those scents.  White is my favourite.  My BFF loves Black - so it worked out well - we just split the packs!

Burberry Brit is one that my parents picked out for me - I have the matching creams and the full size perfume as well.  I just love it - I've worn it for well over a year.  I think it really suits me.
