Which perfume am I desperately looking for?

Years ago, (many) I loved the just musk perfume oils at the body shop. And recently I liked their vanilla perfume (before they changed it). So I love scents that smell 'warm', musky and dark but a bit sweet too, I suppose.

Too many scents make my head hurt so I've put off going into a shop and trying scent after scent so I thought I'd ask on here first. Is there a perfume that fits my bill?

Jo malone vanilla and anise?

You might like Valentina by Valentino, it's not musky but it's a warm powdery scent, it's gorgeous. Has quite strong vanilla base notes.

Here is a musk one from The Library of Fragrance. I don't know what it's like, but I have others from there which are nice.

Have you tried Body Shop 'Black Musk'?

Great suggestions, thanks. I shall see which are in the perfume shop local to me to investigate.

I'm interested in the Valentina one as I love a vanilla perfume. Some of the children in my class have told me I smell like sweeties. smile I've sent for a sample thanks.

There was one in a green and white box, inexpensive, around 1990, Im sure independant chemists still sell it. It could have been called Vanilla Musk.

A quick google tells me you can still get it for under £10, its by Coty.

Try This Choco musk. It's cheap, but very good.

Angel by Thierry mugler

You could also layer Dior Hypnotic Poison (lovely deep vanilla) with a good musk such as Library of Fragrance, Jovan Musk For Women, or the perennial Body Shop White Musk.

Angel is the worst cloying smell in the world, it lingers forever. I have a workmate that loves it, but too many people have told her it stinks (in a nice way) grin

You could honestly still smell it the next day when you went into the office.

Angel is very strong for office wear!

Try Cinema by Yves Saint Laurent which is a wonderfully fuzzly vanilla.

JoLo "Glow" is lovely. Don't be put off by the name, honestly it's really lovely smile

MissBattleaxe Sat 14-May-16 14:30:18

No, don't be put off by celebrity scents. Some of them are excellent. JLo especially has a fair bit of critical respect. JLo Deseo is especially good, but not sure it's the vanilla/musk combo you are seeking.

I sometimes like a bit of JLo Glow after a bath before bed, it smells comforting and clean a bit like Nivea.
