I need a pick me up, something to get ready for springtime, I''m done with the snow and ice and having my kids home for snow day!! I have plenty of cloths, can''t buy any new shoes due to my mutilated ankle, so I thought about a new perfume.

What is your favorite?

Oh goodness, I am going to catch it from Ellen if I even try to answer that question.....
Perfume is another of my * cough* obsessions.....

Ok here are my three current faves - Teint de Neige by Lorenzo Villoresi, very powdery with sweet cherry and almond.

Chanel No 22, powdery incense, available from Chanel Boutiques only.

Lipstick Rose by Frederick Malle, smells like a waxy old fashioned lipstick - literally!

Some suggestions for spring by Christian Dior, Diorissimo if you like lily of the valley, Diorella - peachy, floral, citrus.

Fleurissimo by Creed.

Coco Mademoiselle is easy to get and pleasant for spring, floral patchouli.

Hermes Kelly Caleche - soft leathery floral

Prada Infusion D''Iris. Smells like iris, bergamot, and wood. Very soft and great for everyday, but very sensuous as well. I get a lot of compliments from men on this fragrance, because it''s not "too perfumey", very understated. When my husband got it for me, it could only be found at Saks, Neiman and Nordstrom, so I don''t know if it can be found at Sephora or Macy''s or any of the other mainstream stores yet.

I''ve been layering Jo Malone Orange Blossom and French Lime Blossom colognes - both are floral but one is more "green" (the French Lime) - I love the combo!!

Your post made me laugh as I''ve been meaning to try Lipstick Rose ever since I got a whiff of it on someone visiting. Can''t find it anywhere on this side of the Atlantic though.

This week I''ve been obsessing with Encre Noir by Lalique. Can''t describe what it smells like, it''s an odd one me and I think it''s kind of peppery, maybe? Lorelie, if you haven''t smelled it yet, try to find it.

Girlocks- For the spring (and i can almost kill myself for saying this) i still love D&G''s Light Blue. I know everyone wears it but I still think it''s a lovely fragrance.

Bulgari Omnia is my favorite department store perfume. It has a really non-typical smell, I believe it's technically an oriental but it isn't as heavy as most out there... I think some of the notes are tea, cardamom, white chocolate, and pepper if I am remembering right. Yet it isn't super foody, or deadly sweet or anything. It's an easy one for non-perfume fans to like- everytime I wear it my sister asks "What's that wonderful perfume?" It's also one that men like too... sometimes too much
It was what I was wearing when a (freaky male) customer said "I'm going to leap over the counter and ravish you, you smell so good!" Oh the horror! It took months for me to stand to wear it again.

I also wear Aquolina's Pink Sugar if I'm feeling in the right mood. It's fun but very very ubergirly, and often a little much for me.

My husband filched my Bulgari Black, so it's his now... I draw the line at smelling the same. It's unisex and yummy, it reminds me of very soft incense.

I also wear a lot of perfume oils, from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Possets, primarily. I love many, many, many of the BPAL scents. Some of their non limited edition scents that are pretty yummy and not too odd or heavy are: Antique Lace (soft vanilla), Eat Me (it's an Alice in Wonderland reference, and it is DEAD sexy), Bliss (mmm melted chocolate), Obatala (truly an amazing perfume, very unique and light, perhaps my favorite of this group). They do samples of those too, which is great. Bottles aren't too expensive usually either.

Possets, also a small perfume oil company, does amazing scents. Really ANYTHING they have is wearable, I've found. BPAL can be very hit or miss- they make some very out-there stuff, but what I like I love. Possets, on the other hand, about 99.9% of it is absolutely gorgeous, and the ones I don't love I can enjoy in a "hmm, this would smell lovely on someone else" sort of way. They're very reasonable too, and have samples galore.

Pure White Linen by Estee Lauder. Something about my chemistry makes it smell amazing on me.
Men, that I don''t even know, are constantly telling me how great I smell!
My husband loves it (late at night) when it''s so subtle he can only smell it when he gets close.

Burberry London. It''s a great winter perfume. It must mix well with my body chemistry because I absolutely adore it. I really am super picky on perfumes and can look for an hour and not find anything I like. Once I smelled this at the store, I had to go back later and get it. It''s that awesome!

Bobbi Brown Beach. It literally smells like sunscreen and sand and ocean. I love it in the winter because it make me smell like summer! My husband despises perfumes (which stinks because fragrances are an obsession of mine and they all seem to give him a headache) and he loves Beach.

I wear this everyday
You have great taste vesper!


When I first tried it on at the store, I could not get the yummy smell out of my mind for the next 2 weeks (ok, I sound crazy, lol). And I usually don''t even like perfume!

I might have a solution for you with Lipstick Rose!

Try this website as they will ship internationally -

www.lessenteurs.com

I will definitely keep a lookout for Encre Noir - sounds gorgeous!

L''artisan La Chasse Aux Papillons is what I love. Sometimes, rarely, I''ll wear Spring Flower by Creed. It does not surprise me to see such high quality boutique fragrances listed here.

Anything by Escada--Rockin'' Rio is a great one--they are always summery and fruity and remind me of warm weather and tropical vacations. Definitely good winter pick-me-up fragrances!

Sadly no. Alot of people are allergic to fragrance and they don't know it. Most derm perscribed products are fragrance free for a reason.

ETA...This was in response to Sharon...I guess I didn't hit quote.

I forgot to mention that my favorite perfumes: I love Midnight Rain by La Prarie. My fiance got that one for me so I wear that most of the time. There is also a fragrance by Alora called Verde that works amazing for a light refreshing clean sent.

Ditto....The fragrance industry has been working on eliminating known allergens in perfumes as far as I know especially recently - one thing you could try if you are ok with scented lotions Deb ( if those don''t trigger anything) is to wear one of those as some of the higher end ones have a good amount of fragrance and longevity.

Ugh, unfortunatley there is a lot of problem with lotions too, not to mention shampoo, and soap. I''m sure there are some but it also helps to know what fragrances that you are allergic too. A good dermatologist should be able to help you with that. After working for a derm company for a long time one thing I realized is that just because its expensive doesn''t mean its better quality, sadly. That is a generalization however I''m not an expert in that area anymore and that is about all the help I can provide.
