Black cafe vetyvr is out of stock (for my birthday pres from dh) - I love the numeg and ginger but can anyone recommend their favourite - I lean towards sandalwoody scents.. thank you grin

I like grapefruit, lime, basil and mandarin and white jasmine and mint. Probably not your choice though if you prefer the sandalwoody ones. What about the Red Rose one?

Wheelybug Wed 03-Sep-08 10:25:41

I'm with Stella here - Love all hers and also Verbena. So probably not much help !

Pomegranate noir - lovely warm/rich smell

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 10:26:38

I do like lime,basil and mandarin but a friend wears it a lot and I want my own scent !! Is the red rose woody underneath do you think ?
What about the 154 one ?

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 10:27:14

cupsoftea - can you describe ? was thinking of fig and cassis too

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 10:28:33

would it be boring of me to stick with nutmeg and ginger ?
I took a chance last on the black coffee and love it so much,so might be worth a gamble on something new

The limey basil one.

cupsoftea Wed 03-Sep-08 10:29:56

mas - check out this description - it's lovely & a pressie from my sis as well.

thanks cupsoftea !
Blue agave cacao one - anyone got that ? sounds in similar vein to black cafe vetyvr

FabioFlangeCat Wed 03-Sep-08 10:37:18

I have a flange.

Looky here

OK, I stretched the definition a bit, as I'm not a "wheel, pipe, rail, etc."

Also I wanted an F and it was the first thing I thought of.
And it's a terrific word.

I could be flanged.

FabioFlangeCat Wed 03-Sep-08 10:37:51

Ooh sorry, hijacking.

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 11:43:04

Pomegranate noir

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 13:55:34

mm, have put that on list for dh,along with vetyvr and the blue agave - thanks !

BlingLovin Wed 03-Sep-08 13:56:37

can you believe I'm allergic to Jo Malone? So bloody depressing. Sneezed all through a meeting once with a woman who was wearing it.

midnightexpress Wed 03-Sep-08 13:59:18

I'm a nutmeg and ginger gal - love it. Friend has the fig and cassis and it's lovely too.

annh Wed 03-Sep-08 14:01:05

Definitely Pomegranate Noir for me. Think you would be better off sticking to Nutmeg and Ginger rather than be disappointed in something as important as perfume though!

MaryAnnSingleton Wed 03-Sep-08 14:06:12

thanks all - BlingLovin - what a shame !!
will let dh choose from shortlist - I think...
