What do you like to wear?

For the longest time I couldn't find a perfume I really loved. I was using Victoria's Secret Pink body spray which was nice but it didn't last very long, since most body sprays don't. They're cheap though so whatever.

Then I got a sample of Fergie "Outspoken" from Avon. It was nice, a little more suited for fall/winter or night time but still not bad.

The last few times I was in Sephora I had been asking for a few perfume samples and asking for recommendations for pretty, girlie floral perfumes. So the first four testers were:

Lola by Marc Jacobs - it was okay, not the best

Blue Water - Dolce and Gabbana - apparently popular but did nothing for me

Miss Dior - Dior - it was good at first but after the first scent layer wore off the underlying scent wasn't that spectacular

Princess - Vera Wang - winner! pretty, floral, girlie, and the scent didn't change to something else.

So one the last trips to Sephora I bought a bottle of Vera Wang "Princess" and asked for two more perfume samples and I think I may have found two more winners.

Daisy - Marc Jacobs - another pretty floral perfume that still smells pretty hours later

Poppy (purple) - Coach - still on the fence about this one. I think it may be another good one but I'm going to keep testing it in a few days and see how I like it.

The lady behind the counter also tossed in a sample of Hello Kitty "Big Pink Bow" which smells like it has potential.

Also..I found that Sephora has roll-on perfumes of some of their more popular fragrances for only $20. Some of the scents I've mentioned are available in a roll-on so if you don't or can't shell out for a regular bottle of perfume there's always this. Plus they're small enough to fit in your purse. bonus!

I may expand and try a fruity fragrance next, like DKNY BeDelicious.

Still haven't found a fresh fragrance that I like but it may be that it's just not my style, much like some of the heavier woody or oriental fragrances that are more suited for night time.

"Obsession" by Calvin Kline

Navy

"Woman" by Versace. My all time fav. I think that they don't make it anymore. I have a full bottle of it but it's 1200 miles away (in San Diego). Good thing my wife doesn't like it!

My fav is Oscar. It's intoxicating. I gave it to my mate, she makes me melt with it on.

I am buying her more for my birthday.

Still searching for the one for me. Thanks for the ideas!

Love, Megan

Bond no. 9 has a couple of scents that I have really come to love. The Chinatown is friggin' amazing, and it smells like nothing else so you get the unique factor. The Bond no.9 perfume (that's the actual name) is also really nice. Toki Doki has a scent stick called Donutella that is another favorite of mine, the sticks are not as strong as a liquid fragrance in the beginning, but seem to last so much longer.

I wear Pink Sugar from Sephora. The scent is intoxicating. It lasts and doesn't cost to much.

There is a girl at work that wears the Patchouli, and I can smell her coming even through an industrial refrigeration cooler. One sniff, and I know Claire's coming.

I really feel bad you can't smell, does it affect your taste at all?

I currently have acqua di gio by giorgio armani, I plan on picking up a bottle of Purr by Katy Perry. The armani stuff is light I think it was described to me as a summer beach house on the mediterranean. I like it. Very clean and fresh smelling and not over powering. The Katy Perry stuff is fantastic for a night out. I think both are great any time of the year.

I like to change a lot. have been to Sephora and I did like the Princess Girly aroma. I usually will start shopping when the perfume de jur is getting low. It, at least to me, is like looking for a great pair of shoes. and I like the change.

      Thousands of U.S. trans people fly to Thailand for GCS surgeries every year. But Thailand's own trans folk are not well treated.   https://www.france24.com/en/live-news/20201028-thailand-s-first-transgender-mp-dismissed-from-parliament     Carolyn Marie

      oh my dear Jackie, I’m sure you realize by now I am completely shameless! I mean last weeks video is already over 15,000 views and climbing and all because I talked about dilation! I think I disappointed so many people keeping it clean! Then again I always make my videos as generically clean as possible because the possibility of young people in transition watching is always very real... I’m extremely fascinated by your new project, I would really like to know what you come up with, I’d like to see it, I might even be able to use it on the channel if you’re willing to come up with something! I’m always struggling to come up with something funny at the end of the video, maybe you could do something funny or help me tell a joke and I could be the voice actor?

      @ElizabethStar is that a laser cutter?  Cute ears.   @Emily michelle generally less is more but you do have to color correct to hide the blueish grey that can show through from any facial hair.  Blend blend blend! Using a foundation brush.  And top it all off with a setting powder.   hugs   willow

      @Ithani Keep your head up, hon. If there one thing I know for sure...change is always right around the corner. Take a deep breath and know that things will improve.   Before I let you go....Can I ask what you have done or are doing for yourself to combat this? Are you trying to handle his on your own? Do you have any real life local support or allies?   Susan R🌷

      Hello and welcome @Cristie Bauman. Nice to meet you. You’ve come to the right place for sure. I for one would love to read your story. I’m sure you have some very unique stories to share within your journey thus far and likely more coming soon. Like you, I knew I was a girl at a very young age (4y.o.). I was told that boys don’t act or dress like girls at that early age. It didn’t change who I was inside. I was 56 before I finally said enough is enough and started living my life for me. I’m happy to see you are doing the same. Good for you!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      It’s very boring lol. The weather has been cold and raining so I can’t go outside either. I have been doing a bunch of cleaning around the house. Also I managed to pick out my thanksgiving outfit. I have also been working on my hair and makeup. I was quite happy, I use a bb cream instead of foundation. So I was putting way too much on apparently. And it bothered me on how it looked. So i tried to do it with hardly any and it turned out great.

      I wrote an update on another thread about genital electrolysis: https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/81722-where-to-draw-the-line-for-genital-electrolysis/ . I did end up getting an erection at the beginning of my first session but the electrologist didn't react to it. For most of the session, I think it was in a partially erect stage (probably more flaccid than erect) for the rest of the visit. The second visit it only happened as I was taking my clothes off but it was going away by the time I laid on the table, and didn't really happen at the third (I've had three sessions so far), so it seems as I'm getting used to having electrolysis sessions while half undressed, erections are becoming less common. Although erections are caused by sexual excitement, for me they seem to be also caused anxiety related to sexuality or modesty.

      If you would ever like tips, I worked on voice training for months and now people who thought I was a girl will usually apologize or just look very shocked when I talk. It is all about where the sound is coming from, anyone can do it, you just have to be careful or you could hurt your vocal cords.   I have made posts including my voice trans-formation over the year, and it is pretty crazy, especially seeing as how at that time I was still trying to lower my voice. It was even higher before then, I just didn't notice it (or at least denied it).

      @Emily michelleHow is quarantine going? Are you able to keep mentally occupied?

      I am a 59 year-old, whose birth certificate has Male typed on it, but I've had my doubts about that since the age of 4 or 5.  I've spent a lifetime being a people pleaser and trying to live up to other people's expectations of what I should be.   While I am still alive and have my sanity, I feel it's time to be what I believe myself to be.   I want to learn from others who have been where I am, and hopefully find someone who would like to hear my story.  Gender counselors and Trans friendly doctors aren't common in my state, but we have an abundance of self-righteous religious fanatics who are quick to condemn the Trans crowd.

      Here is the latest, and greatest directive amended as of 26JUNE2020. 1341(2)_D_2018-05-23.pdf

      I did PRK when I was on active duty...one of the best decisions I ever made beside reclassing from 13B to 46Q. I wish you luck on the glasses. I did get to speak to Jilian Shipherd, the director of LGBT care at the VA. She actually seems to give a -crap- about people's care; I was impressed. I also have the latest version of the VA care directive if you want me to upload it.
