Strong sweet perfumes

After reading a thread on here a while ago I bought myself SJPs lovely but I don't like it at all. It smells almost fusty to me.

Can someone recommend a nice perfume that has a sweet or musky smell that's not too ££'s?

Britney Spears Fantasy is sweet, lasts very well and is really lovely.

Ralph Lauren by Ralph Lauren
Gucci flora

Angel. I hate the smell of it but it's definitely strong and sweet!

Shalimar. Vanilla and strong. I love it.

Not my thing, but:

Mugler Angel
Lancôme Le Vie Est Belle
Givenchy Ange ou Demon

If you like more of a vanilla-sweet vibe, Dior Hypnotic Poison or YSL Black Opium

On the cheaper, celebrity front:

Sofia by Sofia Vergara - a bit like LVEB but without the patchouli
Fancy by Jessica Simpson - very strong caramel/vanilla/pear

Lancôme miracle is a lovely floral/sweet smell that isn’t sickening

Don’t know if these will be too expensive but this is my favourite type of perfume and my two favourites are Lancôme live irrestible and flowerbomb, Viktor and Rolf

Sweet darling by kylie minogue is strong and smells like love heart candy.
Ralph by Ralph Lauren is very strong and smells like strawberry and pineapple.

Beyoncé heat. The red or orange ones are both very sweet.

This is Her by Zadig & Voltaire has notes of jasmine, milky chestnut cream, vanilla and sandalwood. It’s very reasonably priced and lasts! I always get asked what I am wearing when I have it on.

Treson, Midnight Rose.

tuvix i immediately thought Shalimar too. But honestly it's so sweet and heady that it actually makes me feel weird wearing it. Sort of hot and light headed. Love the smell but these days it stays on the dressing table just looking good.

Loverdose. All the Fantasy perfumes by britney spears are all sweet too. Hugo Boss Orange

Prada Candy Kiss - So strong and so sweet!

Armani Si. The eau de parfum

SukiTheDog Fri 20-Oct-17 19:19:24

Armani Si is expensive but.... strong stuff with really good staying power
