And if there are any fragrance lovers out there, what would you recommend for me? I'm totally clueless!
I love quite deep woody smells (I think, rubbish at describing them) And also quite sweet vanilla tones - not too keen on florals. I usually wear Tierry Mulger Alien, and love Angel but it's too much for day-to-day. Also love a Patachouli (sp?!) scent that I saw in M&S the other day. And in my yoof I used to wear Gucci Rush/2. And a period of a Kylie Minouge one - sweet darling?
I want to go to Fenwicks at the weekend to sniff some, but no idea which ones to zone in on.
Why don't you wear your usual scent? I did (if I wore any, which I can't actually remember) - but there's no point recommending it because it's out of production and is fairly unusual (Liz Taylor's Black Pearls).
My lovely Dad (now sadly no longer with us) bough it or me especially. He wanted a scent that would never age or go out of fashion. So I could always wear and it and remember my wedding day. And, as it turned out, it also reminds me of my Dad.
