What's your 'everyday' perfume and can you describe it?

I'm on the hunt for new daytime scent and I haven't found it so I thought I might ask MN for a shortlist so I can maximise my extremely brief perfume-sniffing time while my toddler is happy in the buggy ie distracted with snacks

My previous one has been Marc Jacobs Daisy which I like a lot (just want a change) - I suppose it is floral but without being sickly, it's sort of fresh and zingy but not too overpowering.

Liz Earle number 15, is lovely

ElizabethBathory Wed 13-Nov-13 14:37:38

Diptyque Philosykos. It's like a cross between fig and coconut but not sweet at all, smells very fresh and 'green'.

I've gone back to Chanel's Coco Madamoiselle recently after I used to wear it regularly years ago. You can't beat a classic!

I love Coco Mademoiselle Vikki but for some reason I never felt like 'me' with it on so never bought it. I think it was too glamorous for the rest of my style.

Ha- was going to come on and say Daisy! I also loooove Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. It is also (obviously) fresh, not overpowering and lovely.

Wearing orla kiely's perfume at the mo, can't remember it's name tho. Like DKNY pure too.

Vikki88 Wed 13-Nov-13 15:14:48

I understand what you mean ElizabethBathory but I just love it! It puts me in a better mood straight away.

creed spring flowers
'Vibrant fresh green notes combined with succulent fruits including Peach, Apricot, Melon and Apple shimmer over an exquisite floral heart of Jasmine and Rose. A subtle Musk base provides just the right note of playful sensuality.
Top notes: Bergamot, Apple, Apricot, Melon, Peach
Heart notes: Jasmine, Rose
Base notes: Musk'

illuminum white gardenia petals
'As fragrant as a bouquet of white flowers, quivering in the gentle April breeze, this is a delicate and charming scent.
The top notes of gardenia and wisps of lily dance around the heart notes of ylang ylang, muguet (lily of the valley) and jasmine, which bring a further trio of white flowers into play.
Amber wood underscores this light, fresh, modern bouquet, adding depth and an aroma of deeply rooted tradition. Truly the scent of a future queen and a must-have for any princess.'

both are fresh-floral if you ask me

Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. - I get complimented on it all the time.

JeanPaget Wed 13-Nov-13 15:40:12

Channel no 19 - a green fresh floral, quite iris-y.

(I do also love Lily by Stella McCartney though)

springthorn Wed 13-Nov-13 16:29:30

Ghost Deep Night.

It's the only fragrance I've ever smelled and thought straight away: that is so me.

Heart notes: Apricot, Peach, White Wood
Top notes: Cereus, Rose
Base notes: Amber, Vanilla
Scent: Floral
Feel: Feminine, Mysterious, Seductive, Sensual, Sexy

Ooh I forgot about Ghost Deep Night springthorn, it's gorgeous. I wore their other one in the tall blue bottle for years.

redmayneslips Wed 13-Nov-13 17:04:45

Tom Ford - Portofino Neroli - very 4711 apparently (though HUGELY more expensive) confused

Next I want Creed Vetyver

LaFataMalvagia Wed 13-Nov-13 17:14:37

Everyday I wear the little sephora body sprays. My faves are the coconut and purple berries.

My 'day time' (but not wasted on work!) perfume is Armani Acqua di Gioia. It's fresh and 'acquatic' apparantly, and a bit jasminy.

lifesgreatquestions Wed 13-Nov-13 17:16:24

Chanel COCO here! It's classic, intense warm and spicy, so I have to be careful just to use one or two pumps, and I always get compliments.

dumbelina Wed 13-Nov-13 17:20:08

DKNY Be Delicious Green Apple - lovely and fresh for daytime.

AmethystMoon Wed 13-Nov-13 17:21:40

Chanel Allure Sensuelle
I switched from Chanel Allure about 7 years ago. Quite spicy, warm I think, I get lots of compliments.... Particularly from men... So be careful wink

BitsinTatters Wed 13-Nov-13 17:23:54

Chanel coco here too

Loves it.

HelloBoys Wed 13-Nov-13 17:29:38

Lacoste Femme was mine. a friend of mine described it as smelling like leather jackets etc. Now I'm drawn to Michael Kors Sexy Amber.

I used to like Nicole farhi Aqua (I think name) but not sure if they do it anymore.

PenelopeChipShop Wed 13-Nov-13 19:18:15

Ooh thanks everyone, some I haven't heard of. Will look out for Lily, that sounds me. Northernexile I tried that Chanel one this morning and I agree its also nice! Could be that one. Trouble with this is smelling perfume is one thing you can't do online!

MillyRules Wed 13-Nov-13 19:24:04

Chanel No. 5 during the day and Chanel Coco for date nights with DH.

scarlet76 Wed 13-Nov-13 19:40:51

Love chanel perfumes. Eau Fraiche, Allure, No 5, Coco Madamoiselle.
Recently tried Estee Lauder Modern Muse and liked it.

KatieScarlett2833 Wed 13-Nov-13 19:46:17

I like Daisy too but am currently loving Jo Malone lime basil and mandarin.
