I need new perfume and have a voucher!

Allure is lovely, also by Chanel.
Have you tried any Penhaligon? Think they are gorgeous, very rich and evocative.

Never heard of penhaligons but will look out for it. Will sniff allure!

Clinique Aromatics. Paloma Picasso. Assuming you like a strong fragrance.

Estée Lauder modern muse is GORGEOUS

Chanel Les Exclusifs are lovely. Only from Chanel shops

I love Chanel No 5 Premier Temps which is a lighter, more summery version of No 5. I have both & wear one of the two every day depending on what mood I wake up in smile

Don't know if it compares to Chanel, probably not but I recently bought dolche and gabanna original for women. It is gorgeous.

Chanel No 22 (one of Les Exclusifs range; Selfridges stock the range) is better than No 5.

Another vote for Allure, gorgeous perfume. Will be my next purchase!

Another vote for penhaligons, I have Chanel no 5 and also Artemesia (I think). Definitely worth checking out if you have one nearby.

I love no.5 and also like Donna Karan Cashmere Mist , D&G The One and Gucci Guilty.

YSL Rive Gauche? Seconding Clinique Aromatics Elixir.

DolomitesDonkey Sat 08-Feb-14 06:20:00

Jill Sander's number 4, or have a dabble with some Piguets.

Classic and modern aldehydics:
Chanel No. 22
Caleche by Hermes
Rive Gauche by YSL
Miriam by Tauer
expensive but lovely (samples worth a try): Gold by Amouage, Vega by Guerlain
If you like classic bouquets but are looking for a change:
24 Faubourg by Hermes
For a flirty but stylish chypre:
Y by YSL

I'd smell the other Chanel perfumes - sure I read somewhere that there are ingredients common to all the Chanel perfumes

Morgause Sat 08-Feb-14 07:01:21

Chanel 19

Great ideas. Thanks all very much.

I got a bottle of narsicco Rodriquez which I have probably spelt wrongly but it does have a lovely smell!

No5 is my favourite perfume. The only other one I love almost as much is Arpege which is the nearest one I have ever found to it, despite trying hundreds.

I wear no 5 for day and CoCo at night smile

Prada eau de iris

Try Estee by Estee Lauder. it's one of her classics. I alternate it with No.5. Gorgeous!

I always love No 5 is my favorite but La Perla (black lid horrible bottle really) is my second fav. It's a bit sexier I think and it's pretty cheap.
