Have you ever fallen in love with a perfume after one whiff?

Eternity by Calvin Klein. I used to work with a perfume addict, who spent most of her wages on perfumes and wore a different one all the time. She used to be hard to be close to because they were so overwhelming.

This was the only one I ever liked, and I had to ask her what it was. After that I tried it and it suited me, luckily, and I've been wearing it ever since!

Sometimes I can catch a smell of it when I take my scarf off or something (you know how you get 'immune' to the smell on yourself) and fall in love with it all over again.

Disappointingly at my gym, sometimes people say 'Ooh you smell nice. What's that you're wearing?' I proffer my wrist, and they say 'Not that, your hair.' Outrageous, but women of a certain age around here prefer the smell of Pantene!

Yvresse (formerly Champagne) by Yves St Laurent but it's so difficult to get hold of here these days.

L'elixir by Nina Ricci. Sprayed it on me at the airport and thought 'I must have this'

I used to wear this about 20 years ago when it was Champagne.. loved the little bottle

I just bought myself a big bottle of Jimmy Choo - it's the only one my boyfriend tolerates. I love heavy perfumes.. Womanity, Amarige, Dior Addict but he hates them

Definitely this one. I loved the look of the bottle, tried ages to find the perfume so I could see what it was like and loved the smell instantly.

I often get people asking me what it is.

Another vote for flower bomb. Got a sample of it and Im gagging to buy it, but its not cheap!

also Amor Amor did a limited edition version back in 2005 and I loved it. Borught a large bottle in duty free in Spain, couldnt find it here, a year later managed to buy another big bottle in Egypt but alas thats it. Gutted they only did it for a limited time

I love Hugo boss women. Been out for years not to expensive but I always go back to it. Anais anais ( spelling rubbish ) makes me feel sick

Great thread

A few years ago I fell in lust with Valentino Rock n Rose. I adore that scent.

More recently, it has to be Flowerbomb, one sniff and I had to buy a bottle. Its not that cheap, but I make sure it lasts. I dont think I could be without it now

Also, quite different to the scents Ive mentioned above, but I love Thierry Mugler's Angel and also Womanity is nice aswell. My boyfriend hates Womanity though so I dont wear it that often!

I really love Tom Ford's Violet Blonde. For some reason it smells like my mother's face powder did when I was a child. As she is no longer here I get a strange kind of comfort when I spray it on. Apart from that it is a really lovely fragrance as well. Sorry for being morbid 😔

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
I bought this today; it is absolutely beautiful. Classy, elegant and long lasting from what I can tell so far - I can't stop smelling my wrist. I will probably end up buying the shower cream and body lotion too at some point.

A couple of years ago I tested L'Occitane Cherry Blossom at an airport. I'd never heard of it before. I thought it was lovely. Since then it's been my staple daytime perfume. Everyone asks what it is and it's amazing that still hardly anyone has heard of L'Occitane when their fragrances are so lovely.

Eden is lovely and Estee Lauder Beautiful is gorgeous. There are so many others I like but these I find stand out as being quite strong and unique scents which I love.

Has anyone tried Estee Lauder Sensuous?

I buy most of my fragrances on the basis of falling in love with them after just one spritz.

- D&G L'Imperatrice

- Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria

- Elie Saab

- Flowerbomb, Viktor & Rolf

were probably my most recent examples of these.

I also love going back to old fragrances I used to wear. I've rediscovered Dune by Dior and love it even more the 2nd time around.

I LOOOOVE Oh Lola by Marc Jacobs. My husband gave it to me 5 years ago as a gift, and it still one of the most sentimental scents I know.

My mum asked me to pick up some Balenciaga Paris perfume whilst in town today. I was blown away with how beautiful it smelt - so had to get my own one of course.

[quote=MillionLiraBill;54986342]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.

http://www.spacenk.co.uk/product/sho...grance/duro.do

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.[/QUOTE]



I bought some of that for a male friend in the 70s and ended up keeping it myself to use in summer as there weren't many fresh light perfumes available for women in those days. It was all heavy florals or orientals

I used to love Cristobal by Balenciaga, then struggled to get it and used to buy it abroad but can't even do that now. They have discontinued so many lovely perfumes
