Any suggestions? Open to all types, just want it to last all day and smell beautiful.

My favourite go to strong perfume is Alien by Thierry Mugler, it's lovely!

Have you ever tried Perfume Parlour?

Really cheap perfume oils and sprays. Most of the ones I've had smell stronger and last much longer than the originals you get in the shops!

This week I've bought Jimmy Choo, Baby Powder and Ghost Serenity from them. Definitely all lovely, strong smelling with lasting power.

Opium -YSL
I used to work with a girl who wore this. I found it extremely overpowering and didn't like it at all, but it is certainly a strong smell.

Came on to say alien too!

I truly adore "poeme" by Lancôme, it's not that widely available but is amazing, strong and unique.
When it was first marketed it was described as having the power to attract people to you grin
Apart from that I wear Angel and that is strong too, agree with a pp regarding Alien ( same family as Angel ) I smelt it on a friend recently and couldn't get enough of it, have dropped enough hints to dp so am expecting some for Christmas!

I only do strong smells.

Chanel No 5. It's the strongest perfume ever.

I have Tom Ford Black Orchid. It's a very powerful and grownup scent. I only wear it on nights out.

I'm rather partial to Tom Ford Velvet Orchid. It's a bit strong when you first put it on but its lovely when it settles and lingers all day on me.

Clinque Elixir

Put your own gas mask on before attending to children

My signature perfume is Poison, by Dior

People are always commenting on how strong it is! (This may not be a good thing!) grin

Tom Ford White Suede

Knowing by Estée Lauder .... Still a firm favourite after 20 years

OP needs to tell us what occasion this powerful scent is for.

A christening?

Job interview!?

Out powering somebody else's perfume?

Chanel Coco EDP

TWOBANANAS Tue 15-Nov-16 08:05:40

Not an occasion, I just want a perfume that lasts and gets me noticed! In a good way!

CatSittingMonkey Tue 15-Nov-16 08:06:55

Crystal Noir by Versace. My fave.

WhilkandMisky Tue 15-Nov-16 08:10:26

Bon Bon by Viktor and Rolf and Black XS by Paco Rabanne, I always get comments on these perfumes when I wear them.

2 more votes for Poem by Lancôme & Opium by YSL. I also love super strong scents and these are my winter faves

YvaineStormhold Tue 15-Nov-16 08:21:09

She's on the pull 😉

Try Poudree by Narciso Rodriguez.

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Tue 15-Nov-16 08:23:21

Coco Mademoiselle always gets comments. Not too strong, but every time I wear it, a man comments on liking the scent. Maybe I should wear it more often!

atticusclaw2 Tue 15-Nov-16 08:26:55

Paloma Picasso.

It is gorgeous. I have worn it since I was 16 (30 years). Its frequently commented on. Not many people wear it.

Calvin Klein Obssession is extremely long Lasting, similar to Opium but much cheaper. Definitely an evening scent though as a very strong spicy oriental.

I love Alien too. Last time I was in the British Library a man came up to me in the reading room and asked me to write down the name of my perfume so he could buy it for his wife.
