Tova
Lovely and unique fragrance, though unfortunately something has gone wrong with their stock over the past several months and am unsure whether it is worth purchasing again.

Issey Miyake (the original)
One of my all time favs.

J Lo GLow
If you like Jasmine but without it being too heedy (?) then this is yummy.

Clinique- Happy
Very floral and feminine and uplifting

Estee Lauder- Beautiful

What can be said? It's very unique and a classic.

Vera Wang (original)
This is on my want list. It's super expensive, smells expensive and is worth trying if you are in a shop.

Ultraviolet by Paco Rabanne
My mum brought this home from her holiday a few months ago and we're both hooked on it.
It can be very strong so only a small amount is needed - which is perfect considering we're both sharing one bottle.
A lovely fresh smell which reminds of getting ready for a night out :mrgreen:

Deep Red by Hugo Boss
This has been my all time favourite perfume for about 5 years now.
The one I carry in my handbag wherever I go.
Not too strong, or perhaps it's because I'm so used to it, but I wear a lot of this stuff.
But more of a sensual & fruity fragrance rather than floral which is why I like it.

Pink - Victoria Secret. Its sublte and clean smelling. I adore it

Tea Olive - Hove in New Orleans. I got this while visiting the city. I smelled the tea olive trees in the Garden District and fell in love with that scent. I was able to score a perfume of it at Hove in the French Quarter. When I run out, I'll mail order for more, I love it THAT much!

Brit - Brighter sweeter slightly citrus very fun
Beat- I think it smells a lot like brit the difference is very subtile still nice

Men's
Gucci Envy is wonderful I also love Aqua de Gio

Marc Jacobs Ivy. To me it just smells so sophisticated and old fashioned and evokes memories of my childhood. When I wear I feel like I could be in the 1940s' in early autumn. Its pretty unusual as far as commercial perfumes go, but I am head over heels in love with it.

Maybe Baby by Benefit. Gorgeous, sweet and seductive.

Fuel For Life by Diesel. Slightly masculine, citrus-y and totally sexy.

I was bought some Mariah Carey perfume for xmas and whilst it is unbelievably sweet it's actually quite nice. Obviously very very girly!!
Birthdays was the worst days, now we sip champagne when we thirstay.....

Greed, by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. I've read a few people saying that it's more of a men's scent, but it works really well with my skin chemistry =P I don't even know how to describe it, it's FABULOUS. Woody but still sort of floral

BPAL rocks, I won't wear anything else. My current fave is Oblivion. Seems to be popular with wasps too :roll:

Lacoste Pour Femme- the original one in the creamy coloured bottle. It's been my fragrance for 5 years and I can't find anything I like better (and I've looked!)
I do like the smell of Anna Sui's Flight of Fancy fragrance though- it has a great peacock shaped bottle :)

Addict by Dior
Soft dark musk scent, leaves a warm sweet trail behind you every where you go ;/
Comes in a deep blue and gold bottle..
I pay £60 for a nice big decent bottle ;O lasts agggges..

Black Orchid by Tom Ford
Very deep musk.. not suitable for most people, as its one of those scents that are hard to wear..
You wont find this in standard high street stores, as its a designer fragance.. my ex was only able to get it via delivery from London for me..
Comes in a gold box, with black glass and gold bottle..

Flower by Kenzo
A lovely warm sweet scent.. an every day wear fragance..
Love this, its so yummy with out being a typical fruit fragance ^^
Comes in three different coloured bottles: orange, white and pink..
Can be found in most Boots stores..

I was bought Burberry Brit for my last birthday - and I love it ^_^ It's very spicy and warm, and you only need the tinyest squirt.

I also love 'Stella' by Stella McCartney...really girly, but intense (patchouli, rose and amber tones)

And Chanelle Allure Sensuelle is also beautiful, quite heady but v.expensive :/

Oh, and I'm *dying* to get my hands on a bottle of 'Flowerbomb' by Viktor and Rolf...it's one of the most beautiful (but expensive :/) fragrances I've ever worn (I used to pass by the dept. store near work and have a free spray!)
I knew it was only a matter of time, a matter of wine, this project of mine...
