Hi all,
It was my birthday today and I got the Ariana Grande Thank U Next perfume as my cousins had it, and it's absolutely divine. It's my new favourite.
I also love Gucci Bloom, Alien and Black Opium although I've never had them.
What about you? X

At the moment, Hermes Eau Des Merveilles and Maison Margiela, Flower Market, but I chop and change. My all time favourite was Jolie Madame by Balmain, but alas it's not available any more sad

My favourite is the Body Shop White Musk.

Every Christmas I buy my wife Estee Lauder White linen, and Cinnabar. I also push the boat out and buy her Clinique Wrappings. It's an unusual name for a perfume, but how exclusive is it? Made only for Harrods, but you can find it on line, however, you will still need deep pockets.

sharon103, thanks. X

Spangler Clinque Wrappings is my favourite too. So hard to get hold of; used to be able to get it in a perfume shop situated in Cheshire Oaks, a shopping outlet village not too far from me, but sadly they haven't had it for the last couple of years. So Harrods online it is I am afraid! Also love Estee Lauder's Private Collection (which is another green, fresh type perfume similar to Wrappings). If all else fails, I still love Chanel No 5.

The first time that I bought Wrappings, it damaged my wealth. On the greeting card I wrote: To my Ex. Not ex-wife but Ex-citing, Ex-clusive................Ex-pensive. ( I thought of Ex-orbitant, but then thought better of it.)

Tom Ford at the moment.

Love Cinnabar, Spangler. A lovely warm spicy fragrance from years gone by.

I have left, a small squirt of Estee Lauder Amber Mystique.

"L'Eau d'Issey Absolue" because my son bought it, by himself, for my 60th birthday three years ago.
There's a small amount left in the bottle.

"Ghost" which I found in Mum's dressing table after she died.
I won't wear it if I'm seeing Dad though.

Compliments to you all, ladies. You evidently have standards, such beautiful fragrances that you wear.

Puzzler61 Sat 31-Oct-20 21:29:44

I hope you’ve had a nice birthday Flyingh. It’s always a joy to receive perfume and it usually lasts for ages.
I keep going back to Mademoiselle by Coco Chanel. Just a light spray over my head and let it fall onto my hair and my clothes.

NotAGran55 Sat 31-Oct-20 21:34:10

I tried Cinnabar years ago and my friend said that I smelled like a rice pudding!

I might try it again as I should like it . It’s also a lot cheaper than my favourites.

BlueSapphire Sat 31-Oct-20 21:36:14

Anything Chanel. Am wearing Gabrielle today.

Yiayia4 Sat 31-Oct-20 21:49:36

l’Eau d’lssey by Issey Mikake.
Happy Birthday

geekesse Sat 31-Oct-20 21:56:24

I love my half a bottle of original L’Interdit by Givenchy - much more charming than the new formulation.

quizqueen Sat 31-Oct-20 21:57:15

I can't abide any perfume; it makes me heave to be close to anyone wearing any. Disgusting stuff; I'd ban it!!!

EllanVannin Sat 31-Oct-20 21:57:15

YSL Libra isn't bad.
