What's in your 'fragrance wardrobe' ? <eye-rolling emoticon>
Chanel Allure (which I'm going off),
Gucci Eau De Parfum (the original one in the heavy glass bottle)
Very Valentino - A new addition to my bathroom, I love it.
My current fave has to be Very Valentino.
I hardly ever wear the Allure anymore, I think I wore it a bit too much and got bored with it.
I smelt the new version of Eternity, "Eternity Summer", by Calvin Klein, at the airport on Monday. It is gorgeous, the perfect fresh, light day scent. I have to add that one asap, in fact DH is off to Ireland next week with work so he can get me a bottle from Duty Free.... I knew thre were perks to having a DH who works away
I also want to have a sniff of the Jo Malone range, the descriptions sound delicious. I just have to make the trek to my nearest Selfridges to have a try.
Eternity summer is really nice, and that comes from a woman who isnlt a big fan of the original Eternity. It just smells clean and a bit like freshly cut grass. You aren't the only one who finds Obsession a bit too overpowering, I do too.
I have Chanel Allure and No5, which I wear mostly in the winter. Am mostly wearing Diptyque Oyedo and Philosykos, both fabulous, fresh and easy to wear, and not 'common'. Have also worn Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune in the summer, lovely. Had Nu by St Laurent, but never really got into it.
Buy Diptyque, really worth it IMO.
Most of my perfume is bought for me as presents. I don't tend to just stick with one perfume either, I like to swap and change. Where possible I do prefer to get perfum rather than eau de toilette though as it lasts longer.
I can't wear the stronger scents as they tend to make my skin quite red and dry.
