If you had £100 to spend on perfume, what would you buy?

I need a new perfume. My go-to for that amount of money is the original Coco but I'm thinking of trying something new. I like spicey and warm frgrances, nothing aqua-ish or excessively flora but love anything with a cinnamon, black pepper, oriental kind of vibe. Any suggestions?

I used to love the original Fendi Theorema too but that was discontinued years ago.

Opium, my all time favourite. I only get it at Christmas

Penhaligons do good Spicy and warm ones. I will go to harrods and have a look.

I don't like Opium because my (horrible) mother wears it! I love Penhaligons but never really know where to start as the names confuse me.

Do you find the Jo Malone lasts? Somebody bought me the greet tea one, which does smell very nice but it's gone within an hour.

I spent £100 yesterday on 2 perfumes. The first Michael Kors Coral and the second Gucci Bamboo.....both 50ml but absolutely gorgeous scents especially the coral!!

Although that doesn't really fit your brief.....

Parfums d'Empire's Ambre Russe. Bloody love that stuff (not a summer fragrance though).

Have a look at hermes Eau de merveilles. They have an ambre de merveilles which I love for winter.

Coromandel from Chanel les exclusifs

Andy Tauer - L'air de desert Marocain.
Someone's selling it on eBay with a starting bid of £69.

Funnily enough, I'm currently trying to source an affordable bottle of Coco! grin

Prada (Amber) Eau De Parfum

Coromandel by Chanel and LADDM by Andy Tauer are two great suggestions. I've also recently tried Guerlain Shalimar and was surprised at how much I liked it. You also can't beat Bois des Iles by Chanel for spicy and warm...

11 Semma by Odin might be up your street. It's warm and spicy, with a lovely amber-y base, and a flush of humbugs. Also, second Ambre Russe but neither of these is widely available (les senteurs in London) for trying out casually in the High Street. Now are they summer day scents (as if you need one in the UK more than five times a year).

Kenzo jungle l'elephant might be up your street and can be sampled at BeautySpin.Alternatively I second LADDM by Tauer and Jo Malone's Dark amber and Ginger Lily( which I love but suspect it's an amber for lightweights).Another option might be a Guerlain exclusive or a Chanel one.

Guerlain or Bulgari.

Jo Malone- pomegranate noir
My all time favourite

Any Tom Ford would suit your brief.

Judydreamsofhorses Thu 08-Sep-16 15:52:29

If it was my £100 I'd buy Heeley Agarwoud, but I agree with the Tom Ford suggestions.
