Lauren Harris, 20, a student, said, "I don't like the smell of cheap fragrances, and they don't last as long. I think designer fragrances are too expensive. I like peach body gel from Victoria's Secret because body fragrances are more pleasant."
Rhonda Roberts, 29, a financial-aid officer, said, "I think fragrances can be a bit expensive, but the more expensive fragrances last longer. Most cheap fragrances stink. I like body gels because they seem to last longer."
Melanie Cason, 26, a bookkeeper, said, "Designer fragrances are too expensive because you get such small amounts; I feel like I'm paying for the name and promotion. Some cheap fragrances are good. I like body gels; they last long and they keep you from having to use as much cologne."
Anne Stuckey, 81, a physician, said, "I don't use perfumes because I get clean with soap, and in my profession, you work with children. But occasionally I use the bottle of Chanel No. 5 my husband gave me as a gift."
Carole Clark, 48, who works in marketing, said, "I don't think fragrances are too expensive -- you pay for what you want. I would never use a cheap fragrance. I would not enjoy them, not because of the price, but because of the scent. Besides, I use the entire line of Calvin Klein's Obsession. I like body gels and lotions; you can wear them with the perfume and have a total essence."
Tina Riley, 47, a certified public accountant, said, "Fragrances are not too expensive; you get what you pay for. I've never tried cheap fragrances. I am a Chanel No. 5 lady. Yes, I like bath gels because they make the whole bathroom smell good and make me smell good."
Elsie Nelson, 70, a homemaker, said, "Some fragrances are too expensive, especially when you are on a retired person's income. I can't use cheap fragrances because of allergies -- they are too strong and too harsh. But I can wear Ellen Tracy or Red. I don't use any of the body products because they are too strong for me."
