For men's fine fragrance my favorite is Sauvage by Christian Dior, and woman's fine fragrance I would say Daisy by Marc Jacobs. My least favorite scent is clove: ever since I had a dry socket after getting my wisdom teeth out the scent just reminds me of a bad experience. have many favorite scents, but I'd say my favorite is sugar cookie. It reminds me of Christmas time with my family. I feel all my favorite scents have story that brings back memory from my past.
