I want it too...I could use 5 bottles per week with that price. Unfortunately nothing came up with this name when searching... Is called Defo by... which brand? Could you help us a bit more ?
LOL, defo = slanguage for definitely. Could be a good name for a perfume (or aftershave for that matter) dontcha think?

I was talking about "Tattoo" (per my first post on this thread) by Andrea Botta. It's an eau de parfum sold in Denner for CHF9.95/pink packaging/made in France. Haven't seen it elsewhere but then again, I've not looked. Had a look online but no joy and as for the Denner.ch site, well it seems like all searches lead to their vast wine selection even though I did not put wine as the keyword/search criterion.

Re: Perfume

Samsara by Guerlain, Mlle Coco, Chanel and Arpége by Lanvin. All have a rich, luxurious fragrance imho!

Re: Perfume

I also love Clinique Happy. I generally like light, fruity scents, nothing musky or oriental.
L'eau par Kenzo has been one of my favourites for many years. For me, it's a spring perfume, smells very fresh and light, like first spring flowers.

For summer, I have Estee Lauder Azuree Soleil - smells like coconut and tiare flowers.

Currently I'm using Cacharel Scarlett and DKNY Red Delicious, I also have Be Delicious Fresh Blossom for summer. All fruity-fresh, slightly sweet. And LUSH Vanillary is one of those perfumes that attracts a lot of attention - as the name says, it's pure vanilla and smells totally edible.

Ladies out there - what perfume do you use?
I am at a loss for a new one have tried many, but to no avail.
I normally like the fruity, fresh kind for daytime - Clinique 'Happy' or Dior 'Addict Shine' - but don't want to buy these yet again. I don't like ozone smells, overly floral or cloying.
Please help!
Stale beer or apple cider leni nice to hear from you

Re: Perfume

Oooh, my favourite subject (after handbags!)

My current favourites are Viktor & Ralf Flower Bomb, Jimmy Choo, La Prairie Midnight Rain (costly but gorgeous), Valentina, Alberta Ferretti and the classic Coco by Chanel (I have yet to meet a man who does not love that).

For summer I love Clarins Eau Dynamisante and Eau Ressourcante.

I always like to have a few on the go at once as I tend to get bored with them ... my friend gave me a good tip recently and that is to use older ones to lightly spritz curtains, carpets, laundry and the interior of the car, spraying more into the air than directly onto fabric to avoid discolouration.

Re: Perfume

Re: Perfume

Love fruit and light floral smells too.
Have to agree I love L'eau por Kenzo, Light Blue by D&G, but also love One by CK, except when it fades out to a powdery talcum...
Looking for new suggestions myself...
Fell for a gorgeous rose one in Zurich duty free, that brought me back to an Avon one I had as a kid, but forgot to take note of the name and have never found it since. Plenty of rose ones, but not that particular one.

Though I adore heavy musky or spicy oriental notes my allergies wont let me indulge!
This thread could do with a scratch and sniff patch!

Re: Perfume

Nina Ricci does nice fruity perfumes. I used to wear one of hers that came in a green swirly bottle with a purple lid that smelt of green tomatoes and basil!

I also like light flora smells with hints of citrus.

Pure by Jil Sander, will probably be my next one as it is also along these lines and smells gorgeous on a friend of mine. However, a perfume which smells great on someone else, doesn't always smell the same on your own skin!

Re: Perfume

Same here - I use a Lemon Verbena perfume from Yves Rocher - so fresh and very reasonably priced.

Re: Perfume

OK girls i need help

My favorite perfume so far is

After that i tried




Now the bottle is almost empty and i need a new one. Any ideas? Anything that smells of jasmine will be great. I know i should try some and see but if you do know any jasmine smelling stuff you will save me loads of time

Re: Perfume

Wow, thanks Kittster, for sharing this perfume list with us. I recognized few of the ones I'd like to buy but I'll do it in a "slowly process" so I won't block my credit card ...again.;-)
  • Eau de Baux by L'Occitane, very woody, smoky scent with vanilla, great for winter
  • Eau des Merveilles by Hermès, hard to describe, but also woody, with a hint of orange and it dries down to a lovely powdery scent with a bit of spice
  • Escale à Pondichery by Dior, lovely for summer, light, but, you've guessed it, with a woody, cinnamon-like base
  • Alchimie by Rochas, sadly discontinued, this one is vanilla based
  • Theorema by Fendi - best perfume EVER, sadly discontinued (you just don't market a warm, foody, sensual scent with a black and white ad featuring a skinny, pale woman on her own)
  • Angelique Noire by Guerlain, this is vanilla after a mad night out in a cigar bar
  • Infusion d'Iris by Prada - starts off like shoe polish but dries down to smell like very expensive, floral soap
  • Eau d'Orange Verte by Hermès, green, citrus scent that's lovely in summer
  • Narcisio Rodriguez by Narcisio Rodriguez - not sure about this one yet, powdery with a woody base
  • Herba Fresca by Guerlain - fresh cut grass with lemon zest, another great summer smell, only wish it would last longer

Oh I loved this too. Have you tried Eau par Kenzo? Also L'eau D'Issey smells similar to me.
If you want jasmine then Jo Malone has a Jasmine perfume. 212 Herrera is also also supposed to be jasmine.
