I need to buy more sister a lovely scented body lotion for her birthday. She would like something to wear instead of perfume with a lovely perfume. (No clues have been given about notes).
Please has anyone any suggestions as I am suffering with a bug atm and can't get out to try them?

Angel by Thierry Mugler - lasts ages on me!

Anything by Jo Malone smells gorgeous and lasts all day.

I second L'Occitane body cream for having a beautiful lingering power.

Their Néroli & Orchidée is beyond gorgeous!

If you're looking for something a bit cheaper I get loads of compliments when I'm wearing bodyshop's shea butter body lotion (not the body butter)

If she likes the Hawaian Tropic scent they do an after sun that can be used as a body lotion. Aren't they the same thing. The scent lingers.
Even thinking of Angel body lotion and I start to get a migraine smile

LOVE L'Occitane Rose 4 Reines (v delicate floral) body lotion and perfume. I wear them separately not together.

Was also going to say Thierry mugler angel lotion - really sweet long lasting smell.
Im hoping I get some for Xmas this year as bit too pricey to buy for myself !

I think Angel is like Marmite - You either love it or hate it.

LoadsaBlusher Thu 30-Oct-14 14:54:17

definetely holly I only wear it on evenings out now as it's so strong , I know what you mean , I have friends who loyally refill their angel bottles at the angel fountain in Debenhams and others who really don't like it thlsmile

Philosophy Amazing Grace, soft and feminine lasts all day on me.

BiancaDelRio Thu 30-Oct-14 18:00:34

I think I'd actually prefer to rub Marmite all over my body than Angel grin .

My suggestions are the Laura Mercier Soufflé Body Cream in Ambre Vanille.

And Diptyque Do Son Body Lotion. Gorgeous scent and really long lasting on me. Their Fresh lotion is lovely too.

Fushi - bringer of peace lotion, gorgeous scent

StUmbrageinSkelt Fri 31-Oct-14 10:54:39

Angel's one I'd only buy if I knew she loved it. ::shudder::

Rituals do a lovely scented body cream. Mei Dao. It's like a whipped body cream with a gentle subtle scent. They also do a matching body/ pillow spray. Just really soothing and calm. They have concessions in some UK stores, are also online and have a shop near Oxford Street in London. It's a Dutch company
If you don't like Angel you'd probably love this grin

Liz Earle Silky Body Lotion. I like the bergamot and ginger but obviously it depends what your sister likes.

HeyMacWey Fri 31-Oct-14 16:04:27

Any of the laura mercier ones would be a good choice.
Long lasting and smell delicious.
