Another vote for Flowerbomb here, also Miss Dior Cherie which is very similar.

Which is nicest - the Eau de Parfum or the Eau de Toilette?

I know the parfum is usually stronger, but sometimes the toilette version of a perfume is sometimes not as 'heady'.

Is this the edition with Kristen Stewart on the front? I'll buy the mag to smell the perfume if it's still available.
Bumping my own question

I've just bought the issue with Kristen Stewart on the front, and the free nail varnish, but I've had a quick flick through the mag itself and can't see any free sample of this perfume

Yes. Many years ago, and it was an oriental one only available in Harrods.

Unfortunately it didn't reign long. Unsurprising really that it didn't, considering it was called "Ming".
My Mum had Ming in he 80's

It was like a much nicer "Opium". 1983 I think it came out. I was gutted when it disappeared, not that I could afford to indulge myself more than once with it at the time.

A girl at uni(she lived a few doors down from me in halls) always wore Dior Addict and i would smell it all through the corridor and drool.
It is now one of my staple night perfumes, it just smells like pure sex!! My friend really loves it too but is guttedas she cant wear it as it doesnt smell right on her.
I also fell in love with Dior's Midnight Poison.
Alien is another one i fell in love with...i just really like heady scents.

This is the bottle, just looking at it brings back a lot of memories

If it was discontinued I reckon this one would smell awful now lol.

I bought that after a friend had it on her scarf.

I lasted two days before I had to give it to my daughter I love the smell, but it just makes me feel ill.

Another old one I used to love but can't find it anywhere now is Byzance by Rochas. It's really annoying. I think it must be discontinued.

No perfume sample on p157 of my issue of Glamour mag

Just an advert for the Vogue app, followed by an advert for ebay's fashion outlet ... followed by an advert for Lea & Perrins

I really love Dior Addict and Lady Million by Paco Rabane.
I was hooked on both after my first smell!

I was recently given Elie Saab perfume, body lotion and body spray for my Birthday...It is lush. I normally wear Angel but this has me hooked already

I'm also trying to get hold of a sample of Tom Ford 'Bois Marocain', my friend says her partner wears it but it smells divine on her also

[quote=Sharona68;54587847]I was just flicking through my daughter's Glamour magazine and there was a sample of a perfume I've never heard of.

Narciso Rodriguez - For Her.

I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

Must try it, my absolute favourite perfume is Jo Malone - pomegranate noir. It really stands out nad I get lots of compliments when I'm wearing it.

Duro by Nasomatto. Not many people have heard of it, and it's ruinously expensive, but it's absolute sex in a bottle. It's about the most masculine thing you can imagine without actually rubbing Hugh Jackman all over yourself.

Sadly I would have to sell some of my own offal in order to be able to afford a bottle of my own.

On a more down to earth level, Dior Eau Sauvage is just beautiful. It's an absolute classic and every man should have a bottle.

Two that have already been mentioned and could not be more opposite. Chanel Mademoiselle and Jo Malone Pomegrante Noir. Love these two.

I love these two as well, along with Angel and Innocence.

Mind you, the Jo Malone one gets a mixed reception with my friends - some love it and some (namely my brother) exclaim 'What the hell have you got on???'
