Ok so the most gorgeous is gonna be subjective but would love to know what you guys think! Long lasting would be good too but obviously all fragrances fade. I quite like Issey Miyake or rose scents but am very open minded.

Any ideas, you lovely fragrent ladies..? smile

Rose D'Arabie by Armani Prive, lasts forever. It should though as it's fairly spendy!

Ooh Tuscan leather by Tom Ford, not strictly a perfume but devine and long lasting all the same smile

My favourite is Jean Paul Gaultier Classique and it seems to last all day on me.

Black Orchid (Tom Ford) is my go-to everyday scent. Lasts ages and smells fabulous.
Years ago I used to wear Prada (original) - I find it a little bit sweet now but it lasts all day and beyond.

My longest lasting rose perfume is Lyric Woman by Amouage. Seriously gorgeous. Not cheap unfortunately.

My favourite is Tocade by Rochas. There is some rose in it. I only need a tiny drop and it lasts all day.

I dislike anything with the smell of rose tbh. Reminds me of old grannies! Its just not my thing. It might be lovely in the mix of things though smile

I love Clinique Aromatics. Gets nicer as they day goes on imo.

Another one for Tom ford black orchid. It's "heavy" and distinctive-but I love it!!!

Another Clinique Aromatics Elixir fan here!

Narcisso Rodriguez, it just kind of smells of woman. I love it.

I used to love Vivienne Westwood's Anglomania as a long-lasting rose (leathery but gorgeous). Not sure if it's still available?

Non-rose, Parfums d'Empire Ambre Russe sticks around forever. I absolutely love it but can only apply the tiniest dab at a time! Tom Ford's dc Amber Absolute had serious longevity too. Ambers do last well generally I think.

Somewhat lighter, Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta is really nice and lasts surprisingly well.

not tom ford vetvier wears off in SECONDS

Kablooger Sat 23-Aug-14 20:28:39

agree black orchid lasts forever but I couldnt wear as a day perfume.

Sensuous lasts forever too and so does Liz Earle 15

That Liz Earle sounds really nice. They've got a counter in my Boots, not sure if it has perfume though.

Chloé, narcisso Rodriguez, Flowerbomb, La vie est belle are all nice and long lasting.

YY to Lancome 'La vie est belle' - absolutely divine and long lasting!

I have a weakness for Chanel... I love No. 5 of course, but also Allure. Also Issy Miyake which I find I must use sparingly otherwise it lingers all day!

Yes to Tuscan Leather - it's a men's one and it is officially the best and sexiest smell in the world ever. I can't afford it but when I put some on in Selfridges it always lasts at least two days, even through a couple of showers. Dp hates it, otherwise I would love to cover him into it!

Chanel mademoiselle
