So which really are the best, and the ones to combine? X

Orange Blossom is gorgeous especially for this time of year, doesn't last long though.

Dark Amber & Ginger Lily is my fave for winter.

154 + Red Roses are lovely together or alone.

Blue Agave and Cocoa is my favourite.

I think you have to try. I love Earl Grey and Cucumber in the summer but my sister thinks it's the worst one in the entire range.

She likes blackberry and bay which smells like mud on me.

I like the basil, lime and mandarin and also pomegranate noir.

Hmm the blackberries one smelt rancid on me, am getting the mud connotations!

Grapefruit is my signature scent !

English Pear and Freesia is my favourite. They say it's autumny but I'm wearing it spring and summer, then blackberry and bay in autumn.

But you just have to go and try them all. The ladies in the shop are usually really helpful and not pushy. All the fragrances are light though so don't last long

I love Blackberry & Bay (no rancidness on me..!), Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Red Roses and Grapefruit. Have no clue about combining though, sorry.

I'm really into Red Roses worn with Wood Sage & Sea salt at the moment.

I've been bought a couple as presents (and then sold on Ebay) and have sniffed pretty much all the others in the shop and honestly I don't get the appeal at all.

The fragrances are so one note and unsophisticated. Most of them are overly sweet and/fruity which is just not my thing.

Blackberry and Bay smells like cheap air freshener confused.

I bought the cologne on a whim, and the smell doesn't last! I know cologne is weaker than perfume, but it seems like i'm not putting anything on at all ... waste of money for me sad

Red roses for me smile

Oud and Bergamot is my favourite

I think you literally have to go in there and try them all for yourself. I saw Blackberry & Bay on a similar post coming out tops and when I smelt it in store I thought it was vile. I think the Cologne might be the most neutral.

You can book a complimentary hand and arm massage, they let you smell the fragrances and pick two favourites. You then get a hand and arm wash, moisturising massage and sprayed with perfume, in a layering effect. I had it done this morning.

The blackberry one smelt like unwashed armpits on me.

I like Red Roses and 154 together.
