Those Jo Malone-esque perfumes in M&S are quite good

this lime blossom one is nice and light but deepens to a nice bergamot finish

this one is Rose and Amber, quite an old rose smell, again a nice deeper finish

I haven't tried the orchid and vanilla or the honeysuckle and jasmine one so would be interested to hear what others thought.

Nice big 100ml bottles too. And 3 for 2 at the moment on the internet.

I have the Lime body cream, which I use as a hand cream. It smells lovely, but the scent doesn't last long, in comparison to Jo Malones grapefruit cream which lasts for hours.

Having said that the M&S costs 1/6th of the Jo Malone, so I think it's a pretty good buy as an everyday treat.

I have their honey body butter and it smells really lovely--almost as good as L'Occitane's.

It cost about £4 and lasts for ages.

This is my kind of thread--lots of cheap ways to cheer yourself up in November.

Sorry, it was actually £6--still good value, though.

Here it is

ooh I might have to try that first one as Bergamot is one of my favourite smells.

Actually does anyone know of any other bergamot based perfumes?
