What's in your 'fragrance wardrobe' ? <eye-rolling emoticon>

Sorry for the mildly irritating terminolgy in the title, was flicking through a few perfume sites, saw it and it inspired me to start a new MN thread.

What perfumes do you have ? What are your favourites ? What was bought for you that you never wear ? And what would you like to try/buy next ?

Before anyone leaps on me and yelps 'We've done this before!', I know, I've contributed, but I like to know if anyone else has found anything new that they love....

I use Eternity but also have some Sublime which I have had for ages and love.

At work I have one of the Next perfumes in my drawer if i fancy a quick squirt - but I couldn't tell you what it is !

I have....

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.

Does anyone still wear Obsession !? I had the dregs of a bottle from years ago & couldn't believe what a strong scent it was !

Think I will have to go & sniff the Eternity Summer !

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.

But I used to wear Obsession all the time boy, I must have ponged ! You only needed a tiny drop & it lasted for days !!

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.

At the moment I have three on the go.

CK One Summer
Hugo Boss Woman

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.

I wear Poloma Picasso. And given that my "gentleman companion" recently told me he loves it ("cause it smells like you"), I'll keep wearing it!

Vera Wang, J'adore and the summer Ghost are my current favourites. The first two in the evening (if I ever went anywhere!) and ghost in the day.


piffle · 03/08/2005 20:10

bought for me but I wear them all - Tresor (love) J'Adore, Dune.
I adore Paloma Picasso and D+G Red, also love Clinique fragrances
But the must have one is the Clarins Eau Dynamisante range


piffle · 03/08/2005 20:11

OMG and Jo Malones too best stuff... here I am lathered in it and forgot to mention it!


lunavix · 03/08/2005 20:11


it's my wedding fragrance, so I wear it on special dates with dh and we both LOVE it


WigWamBam · 03/08/2005 20:15

Another vote for Paloma Picasso here. I also like Karma from Lush, and Green Tea from The Body Shop, but they're probably too cheap and cheerful to count
