Sprayed Aromatic Elixir on my wrist yesterday morning, initially hated it, but as the day went on scent developed into something very special, I couldn't stop smelling my wrist, ordered bottle of the stuff last night. On the shelf atm. Earl grey and cucumber cologne by Jo Malone for daywear and for the night Iris Nobile by Aqua di Parma. both complimented very frequently.
I wear Clarins Eau Dynamisante day after day, have done for years and years now. In contrast, I usually have a favourite 'heavy' scent on the go too, I've been through Allure, Coco Mademoiselle ( stopped wearing that after Kiera knightly started advertising it as I can't bear her!), more recently, Miss Dior Cherie and currently a new one from Avon which I absolutely love and was only a tenner on offer!!!!
I should love no.5 as it has three of my fave essential oils in, but it smells like mix of old ladies, dishwater and cat pee on me unfortunately!!!!
Also, I sometimes wear jasmine oil by itself but it's an aphrodisiac so I have to be careful unless I want DH making a nuisance of himself!
Love perfume.....my first was a cheaply one called 'Babe' but I vividly remember my brother buying me LouLou when I was about 14 as it was all I wanted for my birthday!!!
Old favourites which I recently repurchased and they came this week - Carven Ma Griff, Prince Matchebelli's Cachet (very old fave from early work days!) and Eau de Courrages. All bring back fond memories.
The only other perfume I have repeat purchased is an Avon one ( ? me too!) - Herve Leger Femme but I will most definitely be buying more of their new perfume "Premier Luxe" it's absolutely gorgeous. I bought it to wear to work but I really like it.
