I've not worn perfume much since my first pregnancy and just trying to get back into it but not sure where to start. I'd like to broaden my horizons a bit and try some new fragrances so wondering what people would list as their top eight must haves.
2. Kiehls Original Musk 3. Tom Ford Sahara Noir (now discontinued ) 4. YSL Noble Leather 5. Chanel Misia 6. Prada Infusions Iris 7. Guerlain Allegria Pamplemousse (I don't wear it myself but it reminds me of a departed loved one)
The last ones I had were by Chanel (Allure and Chance), Jo Malone (English Pear & Freesia and Blue Agava & Cacao) and Lush (Sun). I haven't actually been in a department store to smell perfumes for a long time and took my four year old the other day and he surprised me by really enjoying it! I ended up totally overwhelmed by the smells and bought a small bottle of Mon Guerlain which they were promoting in store.
I can't do only eight. I can't even do only thirty. In truth I would have to take all my perfumes, especially as on a desert island I would have time to finally write some notes on them! These are a few I have worn recently and thought that they were quite unique and irreplaceable:
Guerlain Metallica Helmut Lang by Helmut Lang Annick Goutal Eau de Sud Creed Irisia Chanel Bois des Iles Hermes Osmanthe Yunnan Amouage Fate Hermes Hiris Guerlain Grosellina Diptyque L’Ombre dans L’eau Guerlain Terracotta le parfum (which smells like a desert island!) Frederic Malle Iris Poudre Armani Bois d’Encens Bottega Veneta Eau Legere Parfumerie General Louanges Profanes Molinard Habanita Floris Malmaison
Chanel No 5 Chanel No 19 Chanel Cristalle Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Tom Ford Black Orchid Jo Malone Velvet Rose and Oud. Marc Jacobs Daisy ( because my DD wears it) YSL Paris ( because my mother wears it).
