HI:

Again more Creed for me. While buying DH's Xmas gifts I got a sample of the Royal Water and Original Scent--I think both genders can wear them and my next Creed purchase will be Royal Water. Captivating. Fresh. LOVE it! Got a sample of the Island Water for a friend and it is her new obsession! The coconut is lovely.

I just treated myself to the smaller 75ml bottle of Chanel Bois Des Iles. I've been sampling their Les Exclusifs- do far ive tried Coromandel and Beige too but they didn't tempt me to buy a full size bottle. I've got samples of four more of the range to try out. I do love the Bois des Iles though. Yummmmy.

On a whim, I bought Jo Malone's 'English Pear and Freesia' yesterday. I'm LOVING the scent. It's definitely soft and feminine, but it has an after-scent which is slightly musky - smells very womanly. It's probably one of the my first 'mature' scents. I will try and layer it with Jo Malone's 'Orange Blossom' next week.

I had to find another go-to scent, as apparently Vera Wang discontinued 'Bouquet'.

I love JM English Pear and Freesia! I am 3/4 of the way through a 100ml bottle. The shame with Jo Malone is that they are all EDT. I wish they came in EDP formulation so the silage was better.

I have a few new bottles as of late. Bottega Veneta is beatiful, once you learn how to wear it. Les Nombres D'or Tubereuse , Editions De Parfums Carnal Flower (as well as Iris Poudre) and at the moment going through several samples of Caron. My favorite so far as Sacre. Sadly not all of these will be able to come with me, some will live at a friends house until I return to the states.

HI:

I am happy with the Chanel #5 Bath OIl I received for Christmas--the scent lingered and permeated the house.... :))

Has anyone bought Montale? I'm very interested in trying their Vanille Absolu as I've heard its not terribly sweet.

Oh and bought a bottle of Pour Une Femme De Caron. I really love that scent.

I love Montale's Vanille Absolu. It's a very grownup and elegant vanilla with a hint of woods and it has a good longevity. I definitely recommend this. And the price is very reasonable.

I like Creed's Vanille Sublime and I agree with Sharon as it is very subdued. The only problem with it is that it doesn't last for more than an hour on me. Now this could be me because I have dry skin but it is the shortest lasting perfume (on me) that I have ever encountered and for the price it just won't do.

Missy--it isn't "you", as it didn't last on me, either. Short of drinking the stuff no additional amounts I sprayed on added fragrance value (for me). This is unusual for Creed, but that is fine...I don't have to like everything they produce!

I've heard that about the creed; plenty of money but nearly zero lasting power which made me shy away from it. The montale I can get from luckyscent and it wouldn't be too pricey at all (I've gotten a sample on the way to me at the moment).

Anyone know where I can get a sample of it? I would rather not spend a bundle on a full bottle if it only last a couple of hours.I suppose I could try Niemans as well.

I tried Les Nombres D'Or Vanille, which I really liked...except for a single hour where it got nauseating and turned to pure candy on my skin. It was quite long lasting though.

I've also tried Nicolai Vanille Intense which smelled like a burned out Yankee Candle.

I can't really wear much in the way of this stuff, I get sneezy and allergic.

The ones I wear when I DO wear it:
--Perfect Veil by Creative Scentualization, sometimes layered with Perfect Nectar, Perfect Vanilla or coconut milk.
--Kiehls Musk
--CLEAN (some variation usually)
--BOYFRIEND by Kate Walsh

After a lot of samples, my husband got me my first proper bottle of grown up fragrance for my birthday, Vaniglia del Madagascar
by Farmacia SS. Annunziata. It is so divine, firstly vanilla then fresh sugar cane and something that reminds me of a freshly fallen tree. I'm no perfume aficionado but I know this is exactly what I want to smell like.

HI:

Bought some Burburry Brit Summer for men: and I love wearing it too! LIght, but no staying power. For me the EL Bronze Goddess Capri is also nice and summer light--but again no staying power. BUt for the few moments--they both smell great!

cheers--Sharon

I'm bumping this thread up in the hopes that you will all share your new perfumes discoveries with me.

Sooo......

What are y'all wearing these days? :bigsmile:
Another stone, or another meal? Hmm...decisions, decisions....

I posted this in Rosetta's perfume thread I think but just wanted to share here too. I am loving my dh's diptyque eau de tarocco. It's very different than my usual to go for vanilla perfumes. It's primarily citrus and so spicy but sweet and just sublime! :love:

It is over a year since anyone posted to this thread, but I am new here, and I really adore fragrance.

When I started I was all about the soliflores, such as Annick Goutal Rose Absolue and Des Lys. I also love her Eau de Charlotte --will always have a bottle of this.

As I sampled and learned more I discovered some bigger deeper fragrances that I now count among my favorites

Safran Troublant by L'Artisan Parfumeur
Ormonde Woman by Ormonde Jayne
No 23 by Ava Luxe (similar to Ormonde Jayne -- and less expensive)
L'Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer
Une Rose Chypre, also by Andy Tauer
Rose 31 and Santal, both by Le Labo

these are all wonderful especially in winter. In summer I go back to several by Annick Goutal, and also Jo Malone Fig & Cassis, and Dyptique Philosykos.

Many others that I love, but the above are my core holdings.

Oh -- Chanel No 5 scented body powder. Really wonderful.
