the best one costs £4 from marks and spencers i thought the same as you just have oh it cant be good for that price but everyone comments on its nice fresh smell it has creams togo with it and shower gels it is called florentyna it has a fresh smell not to soapy or florally i usually wear tresor ,angel or chanel 5 but have to say i get through lots of this one. Marks and spencers have lots of different ones go try some out

what kind of perfume do you like?

floral? citrussy? musky?

talcy0 · 01/06/2007 08:59

Used to use Eternity......apparently that's not good?!!!!!!

Couldn't smell it!!

Not musky....maybe fruity?

Not overpowering though.

Will go out and try some of those mentioned.

Chance by Chanel, (new summer version just out really nice); Light blue, Dolce &Gabanna; Blue by Ralph Lauren and 5th Avenue, Elizabet Arden. Try the website, they sell testers of most makes, really good value!

Truth is nice by Calvin Klein, also Armani Mania always gets nice comments. Karma by Lush is also really nice, very invigorating but very much an acquired taste.

another vote for Cool Water. dont; like the branding, bottle etc - I'm usually a sucker for these things and think of myself much more as a Chanel type. but Cool Water smells great so I forgive them the crap branding. just treated myself to some today in fact after a sveral month drought.
