What are your favourites? I'm looking for something new. I love Bronze Goddess and also like Avon's Tahitian Holiday.

Guerlain Terracotta might be worth a go.

MsBojangles Thu 09-Jun-16 12:22:00

This is nice too and a bit of a bargain: www.fragrancedirect.co.uk/lolita-lempicka/lolita-lempicka-elle-laime-eau-de-parfum-spray-40ml/invt/0057190?istCompanyId=17773c4e-a26f-4631-9b91-73e6422dbe77&istItemId=iwliixmmq&istBid=tztw

O de Lancome
Yardley Jade

A Scent by Issey Miyake

All fresh and green and uplifting!

Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi. It's the only citrusy fragrance I really like.

MissBattleaxe Thu 09-Jun-16 13:56:06

Any of the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea range- they're all good and not much more than ten quid.

MsBojangles Thu 09-Jun-16 14:00:51

leedy, does that TF last longer than Neroli Portofino?

leedy Thu 09-Jun-16 14:21:11

Yes, it does - it's not super long lasting but doesn't vanish as quickly as Neroli Portofino does on me.

(I tried the Neroli Portofino Eau de Parfum the other day and that lasts, but I suspect it is hideously pricy)

O de Lancome for "posh"days
and
m&s Florentyna range for everyday.

You suspect right, sadly. I've stuck a bottle of 4711 in the fridge, that's almost doing the trick.

Great suggestions, thank you.

MsBojangles, indeed, pricey AND it doesn't last long on my skin, either. I remember being SO disappointed when I couldn't smell it anymore after a few hours my £132 50ml bottle (2 years ago - now I see it is £145, yikes!). sad confused

I now alternate between the body oil and body spray. Neither of them last very long either, but at least, I don't feel so bad as they are not as expensive.

I love Jo Malone for the summer, either Earl Grey and Cucumber or Mimosa and Cardamom.

CoconutAmericano Thu 09-Jun-16 21:23:09

I like the Nuxe one

AmberNectarine Thu 09-Jun-16 21:32:41

I'm currently wearing Mimosa and Cardamom a lot.

Also the original Issey Miyake.

Bronze Goddess smile It's summer in a bottle!!!

sammy891 Fri 10-Jun-16 13:02:17

D&G Light Blue

maitaimojito Fri 10-Jun-16 13:05:01

I love the limited edition Marc Jacobs, Daisy. It's th one with different coloured and sized flowers on the top. It's the only Marc Jacobs fragrance that I actually like. The rest are too strong for my taste.

Also D&G Light Blue.

New Body Shop one is nice - Polynesian Island. It's like Bronze Goddess but a bit softer and more floral. I think it lasts longer than BG which is gone in an instant on my skin!

I like the sound of the Lolita Lempicka MsBojangles - might have to order some. I love the original LL fragrance!

Jil Sander - Sun
Clinique - Happy
Salvador Dali - Sea and Sun at Cadaques
Kenzo - L'eau par Kenzo
