I admit I usually shy away from 'sleb scents'. I do have JSP Lovely.

Anyhow, I was browsing through all beauty and noticed that one of the JLO perfumes was a floral chypre - however, with things like toffee and honey in it it is going to be another damn Terry Mugler/Calvin Klein bloody obsession smell a like isn't it????

I also was thinking of the miami one.

I basically hate very sweet scents but am thinking ahead to summer. Is there one you have that is not overally sweet (do not want to smell like a cupcake) or overly musky (don't much like musk in summer though I used to wear White musk from bodyshop.

By the way I tried on Bodyshops smoky rose bleurgh! Did not smell of much but watered down vinegar!!!!

I wanted something that is cheap but does not smell so!!!!!!!

For some reason, I have a soft spot for Deseo. Reviews and notes here. I used to live in the tropics and this was wonderful after dark. It's not a superb perfume but it has some edge and sharpness (the drydown can go a bit acrid) and I like it. So test on skin and see if you find one you really like. It has fruity notes and a light amber base so some sweetness is unavoidable but this does a curious sour-sweet balancing act. But if you deeply dislike orientals (Obsession is a heavy hitting big oriental) it may not work for you. Most celeb perfumes tend to be really sweet and some J Los are hyper sweet so proceed at your own risk...

If you like citrus and green there are much better summer options out there. Join the perfumistas thread and ask what people there pick for summer!

I was given a bottle of Deseo, it surprised me as it was quite nice. The dry down is a soft coconut.

The problem I have with celebrity scents is poor sillage.

I discovered that m&s sell Fragonard perfumes and they are lovely.

I have bought and loved patchouli, vetiver and Fragonard

Thank you ladies!

I did wonder at Deseo as I love oakmoss and that does have it.

Sunday - I bought Vetiver from M&S yesterday!!!! I love Vetiver!!! Along with a gift set of M&S Isis and I know that is good for hotter days.

I just got fed up of the 'choice' in Superdrug. I would not even consider any of Rihanna's as I cannot stand her. It is all Britney/Rihanna and Beyonce in my nearest superdrug (though I did get SJP lovely and Elizabeth Arden Blue Grass there on special).
