I'm always swearching for new perfumes. So, I'm open to any suggestions. Right now I've been wearing: Daisy by Mark Jacobs, G by Harajuku Lovers/Gwen Stefani, Juicy Couture and Vanille Abricot by Comptoir Sud Pacifique. What do you suggest I should try next. And, what does it smell like? Is it fruity, citrus, woodsy, flowery etc. Thanks so much for all your suggestions!

M by Mariah Carey! It's a really pretty scent, a little strong though. Very feminine and floral with a hint of honey.

I'll have to check out JC. I don't think I've ever smelled it. I do like citrus scents. Thanks for the suggestion!

My all time favorite perfume is Chance by Chanel. It has a very classy smell - not floral. Another one of my favorites is Guess. There are lots of great perfumes out there through Victoria Secret as well. Heavenly is my favorite VS scent. Good luck finding a new scent you like. My best suggestion is to go visit a store like Macys or the Bon Ton and sniff around :-)

I don't remember smelling Chance. I did smell Mademoiselle and liked it. I have Coco. I have a few older Victoria Secret perfumes, but haven't tried the newer ones. I usually go to Sephora and start sniffing, but after awhile it goes to my head. Then I get a headache. So, I try to have a mental list of which ones I want to smell and if it has potential, I ask for a sample. Thanks for the great suggestions. I'll look for them when I'm shopping.

Oh it is a good discussion because I have been thinking about getting a new perfume as well but I don't know which one is good... I like flwery smell but not too strong, which one will be good and have a reasonable price?

I like Daisy by Marc Jacobs. It's a bit flowery. It's a normal brand name price. What kind of flowery? There are a few good rose scents. I like the JLo for the rose scent, and it's not too expensive. I like vanilla based and fruitier perfumes.

Byblos by Byblos - Blue botol with flower cap
I usually use the byblos since 15 years ago. It's flowery smell and not strong. The only thing it's only availbale online. If you like sweet smell, maybe you want to try Realities from Liz Clairborne, also only available online.

I do like perfumes very much, previously my favirate is Chance of Chanel. i just got a new one name IDOLE d'ARMANI from my bf, the smell is really perfect. At the first spray, you might feel it is too strong smell, then you grow on it, the smell turns out to ajust to match you. Another point is that it lasts very very long,so the whole day you are immersed in this good smell, which makes you quite happy!

I would suggest Alien by Thierry Mugler it has a slight vanilla scent to it, anyway its gorgeous and smells gorgeous on. The bottle is really pretty it's a deep purple color.

Hello, I have been wanting to try a new perfume myself . I sometimes am pucky and will buy something and the sale it on ebay. I wish I could just find one and stick with it . I want something where people are gonna think mmm that girl smells good . Yes, I have body sprays but that is not the same and there are 2 from bath and body works that everyone seems to like the first one is called water blossom ivy and its a clean shower aloe smell but you can only get it online , but then there is one that you can buy in the store called moonlight path and to me its a powder/flower/musk smell . at first i didnt like it but it grew on me. Yesterday, I went to Ulta and tried out a few and there is one that my fiance likes and I know a few people told me to try it out: DOLCE & GABBANA LIGHT BLUE PERFUME. I really cant explain the smell it is sweet yet almost citrus smell. Then, I tried Estee Lauder Beyond Pardise Blue and it kinda was a lighter version of Irish Springs mixed with flowers and that was nice . Long time ago I used Vera WAng Princess ooooo and that is super sweet and yummy but for me a more fall and winter scent . I hope you get some ideas!
