Hi all - got a boots voucher for Christmas and want to treat myself to some new daytime perfume. Have lots of evening stuff and usually wear Lovely by SJP during the day but would like a change. Not up to speed with newer things - any suggestions?

Cheers y'all

I got Daisy by Marc Jacobs for christmas & love it, haven't smelt the SJP one though so can't compare.

Do you want something similar to Lovely or a contrast? 'Now Smell This' blog has some great reviews. Do you like florals / musk / vanilla / or 'dirty' smells? I would say avoid any celebrity scents - Lovely is the only decent one grin. I really like Armani for her (in the gold cylinder) - not particularly original but warm and sexy.

Daisy is really nice - I've had that before. Light, funky and youthful.

I tried some Jo Malone stuff on in Selfridges today. It was gorgeous.

How weird smurfgirl, I was just coming back onto the thread to recommend L'eau de Issey myself!

Rose by Paul Smith. It is gorgeous. My favourite ever perfume.

Don't sniff too many at once though.
I second Daisy I treated myself with points, it's lovely. I also got Kylie Sexy darling on double discount day and its nice
