I'm looking for a new perfume and don't know where to start.

I like quite sweet perfume, but wasn't something not too overpowering and headache inducing for casual day wear.

I've liked Mont Blanc Legend and Armani Si, Lacoste Touch of Pink, Flowerbomb .. But they're a bit too sweet for daytime casual.

If you like sweet perfumes then maybe you could try something with a little more fruit tones to bring a bit of freshness and make it more daytime? Something like the Aqua Allegorias maybe?

Lancôme la vie est belle or Chanel chance eau tendre?

Gucci rush is sweet but not overpowering. I also love wings by Georgio Beverly Hills it smells exactly same as Calvin Klein eternity

Jo Malone does an orange-y one that is light & sweet.

Noa by cacharel. It smells a little bit like elderflowers and Jasmine, but is quite light and inoffensive.

Urura's Tokyo Cafe by 4160 Tuesdays is a gorgeous spring scent. Smells sweet and softly purple if that makes sense.

The older Givenchy perfumes are light and sweet, but have good staying power.

Eau de Givenchy smells just like a flower shop (I think that's the one I mean, blue packaging and lid to the spray).

Viva la juicy Le fleur by juicy couture is a nice sweet floralish day scent

Pleasures by estee lauder and L'eau d'issay are two I like

Illicit by Jimmy Choo?

Paul Smith Rose is beautiful for this time of year. I alternate between that and a bottle of Estée Lauder Bronze goddess, when the weather gets warmer, though I really should replace this year as I've just realised I've had the same bottle since before ds was born and he's just turned 4 blush. The Paul smith is super cheap in superdrug atm.

I had a sneaky spray of the new J'Adore Lumiere when I was travelling through Duty Free more than a week ago. I can still smell it on my jacket and it's like a fruity, flowery, soapy smell.
It's different enough from the original (which I associate with being a new mum) to feel I'm moving forwards with my perfume history. I'll be investigating the price when my current perfume (Petite Robe Noire, not a keeper) runs out.

The original Ghost fragrance is quite sweet but also light enough for daytime.

Ghost sweetheart is sweet

sweetheart Thu 07-Apr-16 14:10:18

YvaineStormhold Thu 07-Apr-16 14:11:21

Kenzo Flower is lovely.

scotsgirl64 Thu 07-Apr-16 14:15:44

Jo Malone has some gorgeous scents.....and you can mix and match them

Cakescakescakes Thu 07-Apr-16 14:40:53

Nectarine blossom and honey by Jo Malone. It's my everyday one.

If you like perfumes more oriented to the young market then Escada summer ones might work. Usually sweet-fruity, very suitable for daytime.
