Try the new range of Lyn Harris perfumes at M&S. There are 5 or 6 different scents, eau de parfum, £25 for 50ml. They all smell heavenly to me, my favourite is La Poudree. Only criticism is that the smell doesn't last brilliantly, but that may just be me.
Alexander McQueen My Queen is nice if you can find it. Slightly spicy and floral, lots of violet and musk in it. Not a girly girl scent, a little more grown up IYKWIM. Lasts well and isn't too expensive either
I used to be loyal to Jo Malone but I've either gone off it or it has changed (Amber & Lavender). I switched to Miller Harris terre de bois perfume and also one of the Lyn Harris for M&S ones (a sandalwoody one) and I love them both.
Thanks a milion for all the feedback. I actually did try the hermes jour one and liked it must trt all the other suggestions too. Flowerbomb is not for me I'm afraid, though I must have another sniff to remember why! The green Chloe has such a gorgeous bottle (keep getting suicked in by pretty bottles) but it fades to something v sweet again on me.
What is vetivier? Does it just mean green and woody?
