My signature scent for the last few years (and still going strong) is Chanel Chance eau tendre. I love the light, clean, rich and sexy smell of it. Before that, it was Eternity for many years. I love perfume and am rarely without it.
We are on the same page.I never leave home without my scent. Mine is Baccarat 540. I do like others, too but I adore Baccarat 540. Warmly, Honey
