I've been using Lancôme La Vie Est Belle for the past year or so and adore it, particularly as it lasts all day, but I want to try something new. Wondered what other lovely mumsnetters recommend?

Mine is YSL Cinema - purely because it's the nearest I can find to Armani Sensi which I LOVED and was discontinued

I'm keen on Marc Jacobs scents but my favourite scent in the world is Jasmine, so 'Indian Night Jasmine' from The Body Shop is absolutely divine and it lasts for ages.

I've had other top names like most I guess but that one is something else imo.

My absolute favourite perfume is Angel (the original one in the blue star shape bottle).
Dh has got me Vera Wang Princess and Pink Princess as well, they're lovely as well.

Beaufort London's Fathom V. I have a sample and it's amazing, absolutely love it and hoping to get a full bottle for Christmas. Hints have already been dropped grin

Jo Malone wood sage and sea salt, JM orange blossom and Stella by Stella McCartney. The only scents I ever wear, love all of them.

I'll second the Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine, it's gorgeous and long lasting. I also really love their Black Musk (dusky, roses)
I've just bought JLo Glow which is gorgeous (it reminds me of atrixo hand cream! But in a good way grin)

I'm wearing Angel at the moment, I'm complimented a lot by people telling me I smell nice and I can catch a whiff of it myself all through the day.

Love it!

I've been wearing Chanel Chance lately as an alternative to Lancôme La Vie Est Belle. Love it and receive many compliments.

Charlotte Tilbury's Scent of a Dream. I got a sample of it sprayed on a card and hated it at first, but could not stop sniffing it all day and I'm obsessed with it now. Will be getting myself a bottle for a birthday pressie and I can't wait.

Still, Angel is truly a love or hate fragrance. I love it too and my DP (who never usually comments on this stuff) always tells me I smell nice when I wear it. It lasts like nothing else as well, really hangs around. Some people really can't bear it though!

Bal d'Afrique by Byredo. It's a good day perfume but different enough to be noticed.

SloanePeterson Thu 27-Oct-16 13:59:33

Stella by Stella McCartney has been my go to for nearly ten years and I still adore it. Recently I was bought a bottle of Armani Si Rose which at first I was unsure of but have come to love. My bottle is running out and am probably going to ask for another for Christmas. A waitress asked me what it was the other day, and I've actually had lots of comments about it.

Lottie I suggested on here that the CT fragrance should be called Scent of a Drain 🙊. Not a fan.

Mine is Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights. Seriously. It's incredibly grown up and complex. Smells like a dank mossy forest at dusk. Potent and really enjoyable for the time of year.

Lottapianos Thu 27-Oct-16 14:11:24

Haha Pasadena! I completely get that its not for everyone, its quite intense, but settles down beautifully after about half an hour

I like the sound of your Jessica Simpson stuff though - will check it out. Where usually stocks it?

mumsnit Thu 27-Oct-16 14:42:43

Body Shop Black Musk for me too! Also love White Musk Smoky Rose at this time of year.

Liz Earle no 15 is on my Christmas list smile

Used to adore La vie est Belle but find it too overpowering these days for me to wear all day - it has incredible longevity shock I do like it on others though.

My favourite is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, but if I am running low on that I like Shadow by Ajmal.

Nanasueathome Thu 27-Oct-16 14:44:44

Jo Malone orange blossom

TheNaze73 Thu 27-Oct-16 14:47:33

For women: Chanel Coco Madamoiselle
For Men: Chanel Bleu

I'm flitting between 2 from Lush. Their Imogen Rose and Lust.

Lust is very jasmine heavy, and quite love/hate.

Christmas in New York by the library of fragrance

FurryDogMother Thu 27-Oct-16 14:49:10

I have two - Estée, by Estée Lauder, and Unforgiveable Woman, by Sean John.

Prada: Les Infusions de Prada Oeillet Eau de Parfum.

Woweee heady, not sugary... so hard to describe. Out if this world.

LadyCatherinesshades Thu 27-Oct-16 15:53:38
