I like the scented mosturizers from Bath and Body Works, Especially the seasonal ones. I rub some on my arms scenting and mosturizing at the same time. I use them a few times a day for a light scent.

I tend to not want anything that's long-lasting. The few I've had that were I got from indie sellers using essential oils rather than chemical scents used in most commercial ones. If you want it to last a long time, look for something without alcohol in it and keep in mind that some alcohols aren't "alcohol" according to the FDA, so it may say "alcohol free" on the label and still contain an alcohol (I've seen this with mouthwash.)

I use the Avon Naturals Vanilla lotion/body spray and I can usually still detect the vanilla scent when I arrive home in the evening.

I think the trick is to layer the scent use a body wash, lotion & then body spray or cologne. Just make sure it's not to strong. Bath & body works is a good place to look they have a huge variety and their pretty reasonable.

Neither. Perfumes give me a headache even on someone else if I am near them in a theater or at church.

Layering scents make them last longer.
Using a shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion and body powder etc will make the fragrance stick around longer.
Just be careful that the fragrance is not so strong that people can you smell coming!

I've found that there's alot of people that are allergic to the scented lotions. I know I'm some of them affect me.

If you're worried about how you smell....make sure you're getting plenty of magnesium in your diet. That helps with body odor.

I use a long lasting scented lotion that smells like you just stepped out of the shower. Everybody loves it.

I like body sprays. Some of the scents don't last very long. I carry a travel size in my purse too.

I'm very sensitive and can't do any body fragrances (especially those made with musk) and wish people would go back to good old soap and water!

I love the lotions and body sprays from Bath and Body Works, especially Pink Chiffon!

I think it depends on who are you using the scent for.
Personally ... I love Philosophy Amazing Grace fragrance. very feminine
But there are a lot of people who get headaches from perfume fragrances.
For body lotions, I find a lot of people who aren't fond of perfumes don't mind almond scented things. The more natural a fragrance, the better.

One scent that I just love and haven't really stocked up on yet is from Bath and Body called Japanese Cherry Blossom...I have it in a hand soap and a lotion [not sure if the lotion is B&BW]...I use this and I can smell the light intoxicating smell all day long. I want some more!!!

There is nothing like the smell of good old soap and water.

I am looking for reviews of scented lotions and body sprays. I'd love to find one that stays on for a whole day. Any first hand reviews? TYIA. :)
