Ok I'm out of my current perfume (Elie Saab) so nicked some of DH's Tom Ford. Now, I think I smell amazing, but am I just associating the smell with DH and that's why I like it? Is aftershave stronger than EDP? Or is it just the same kind of stuff in a less girly bottle?
As does my aunt. I bought it after exclaiming that she smelt lovely at a family gathering. Floral doesn't suit me, though am partial to origins ginger essence and Claris Eau dynamatisme as women's scents.
I also wear eau sauvage, and eau de baux, and vetyver for l'occitaine. (Very like grey vetyver from TF, but only 40£) I'm getting spicebomb for Xmas - it turns very spicy and earthily vanilla ish on me.
I think the gourmands have overwhelmed the feminine market and now the candy/ sugar notes with added fruit are ubiquitous and unbearable.
I much prefer the masculine scents now, but make an exception for Pomegranate noir, Wild fig and cassis, and Dark amber & Ginger lily intense cologne from Jo Malone (these are unisex though).
Ooh, I was wondering about men's cologne! I have a friend who leaves his scene on me when we hug hello/goodbye and i love it, it never occurred to me to buy some for myself. At the moment I'm wearing lemony herbally smelling things from l'occitane but might have a sniff around the shops!
