These are the perfumes I have, recommend a winter one for me....pretty please...
I have decided that my perfumes, while all lovely, are decidedly summery. I want to get a perfume that evokes log fires and snow and woolly scarfs and mittens for the winter months but I'm really not sure what that might be.
Here is what I have:
Ralph Lauren Romance Clinque Happy Kenzo Flowers (beginning to dislike this a little) Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Clarins Eau Tranquility
All of the above I would use as day to day perfumes
I have Chanel No.5 and Coco Mademoiselle which I would use for evenings/nights if I had a social life and ever left the house post DD
These I like.
I also have Jo Malone Lime Basil and Mandarin and have had Chanel Chance in the past both of which smelled like aftershave on me. I have Lancome Hypnose which I always think I like but get sick of very quickly and bought Guerlain's My Insolence on a whim going through a dutyfree which is absolutely VILE. Also, I can't abide Angel, Opium or Obsession.
I know some of you lovely ladies are incredibly well versed about perfumes and things like top notes and stuff like that which I know nothing about. I also feel that my perfume collection is something like a beginner wine drinker waxing lyrically about Blossom Hill Zinfandel so all advice much appeciated!!
yellowbottle- if you have the time, I recommend that you have a read through the ongoing thread entitled "The Worst Perfume ever!". it has morphed into a really informative thread about some of the best perfumes (yes, the title is a misnoma). There are some perfumistas on there who will certainly make some fantastic recommendations for you. It has certainly opened my eyes to what is out there. There are also sample sites, so you can try all sorts of perfumes before you commit! Enjoy x
Wow! Just read all 22 pages and feel my purse may be in trouble! I'm still no-one the wiser though as my now recognised as mostly nasty collection seems to fall into many categories! Thanks for responding and recommending that thread as I wouldn't have read it based on the title :-)
My pleasure. You are very much like me at the moment- lusting after a new winter perfume, but not knowing what to go for. I have placed a sample order from surrendertochance.com, so am going to try 5 different perfumes. I am looking for a perfume that is unique, glamorous and perfect for Christmas meals out and Christmas Day round a log fire. I would certainly recommend you post on the worst perfume thread- someone will help you out!
Find The Worst perfume Ever thread. It is without doubt the most informative perfume thread I have ever read and has wandered away from Worst perfumes to best perfumes, perfume memories, website recommendations, sample sites, discussions and expert advice.
No other thread will compare so get over there now and visit the experts!
What I love about the Worst Perfume thread is that it's turned me on to the idea of sampling, which isn't scarily expensive. There are some incense-type scents recommended on there which might tick the cosy winter box for you.
