So I'm in need of some new scents to try but without being able to get anywhere to actually test them (the nearest mall is 45 mins away and I dont drive LOL) I'm looking for suggestions....When I get back from my trip to California I'll be buying some IMPs from BPAL but that aside what do you recommend or what are some of your favs and how would you describe them? I've been a fan of these for yrs now Mackie by Bob Mackie Oscar by Oscar de la Renta So also by Oscar Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger recently tried Cool Water (dont care for it) Clinique Happy (love it) Blue by Ralph Lauren (its so so but I doubt I'll buy it again) WANT to try Oscars Tropical Got any suggestions?

I am addicted to the Estee Lauder line, especially Pleasures and White Linen. Tuscany is great for some things, but its on the heavy side so I save it for evenings in Large Spaces. My honeybunny wears Pleasures for Men - its got a really nice clean scent.

Almost forgot about Aliage it was intro'd back in the 70's as a Sport Scent - first of its kind - Estee was ahead of the pack cool green and citrus-y yummy - you usually have to ask for it by name or as the Sport Scent - its not normally 'on the counter'

if you like fruity smells, i would reccomend DKNY, there are a few scents and they have a new one out now for the summer, ive smelt it in the shop and it smells quite like peaches and orange i think. the original DKNY is an Orange scent, the bottle is long and clear. another one Dkny do is the apple one that one is round shape and i love it, i dont have the red dkny and hevent really smelt that yet. i also have lacoste inspiration, thats a nice scent, kind of like vaninila but something else mixed with it lol, and ralph loren i dont know what its called but its in a pink box and i think its an old sumer one, im not over keen on it but its nice for a change and smells flowers or fruity also

Ralph Lauren "Romance" its a light, clean smell, and a bit musky, but not overwhelming at all like some musks tend to be.

Oh, I LOVE Tommy Girl. My best friend wears that scent and I'm always reminded of my best friend whenever I smell that scent on someone else. I also love Clinique Happy. Hmm, seems we have the same taste in perfumes. LOL. If you like Clinique's Happy you might love Clinique's Happy Heart. I've been wearing Elizabeth Arden's 5th Avenue since High school and you might like to try Estee Lauder's Pleasures and Ralph Lauren's Romance for Women.

I like The Body Shop White Musk, I have often smelt it on other people and think it just smells o nice and soft and knowing it is not tested on animals like a lot of perfumes are pleases me....

I actually haven't tired any of those LOL. My favorite perfumes are Navy and Red Door. Navy has a lavender-ish scent. I'm not really sure how to describe Red Door because it's been a really long time since I've actually used it. I normally just wear The Healing Garden's Lavendertheropy body spray. I love the way it smells and it's very inexpensive.

Healing Garden....you can find that at Walmart right? or am I thinking of something completely different? I love lavender but am quite finiky about it..I've smelled some lavender scents that I just dont like at all...maybe I'll check Healing Gardens out though....something inexpensive would be ideal for day to day/casual use...

Hey they've got it at Wal-Mart. I tend to smell lavender stuff to before I buy it cause it can be a bit much. I hope you like it though. You never know they might have another scent though that you like.

I really like Heavenly by Victoria's Secret, Hugo for Women by Hugo Boss and Salvatore Ferragamo. All these are very floral and sexy scents. I always get complimented when I wear them.

I have the new one by Liz Clayborne it is called Crush and it cost $60.00 a bottle, It is very expensive, I also have some oil purfumes, this Muslin guy sells it it is called Eyptian Musk and it is only $5.00 a bottle but spells really good. everyone compliments me about the smell, I love it and it smells good, very lite. Do you all have that there?

Hi, a woman after my own heart, i love perfumes! I find i buy them all the time! Luckily i have a shop quite close to me where you can buy them heavily discounted however im in the uk! But i would suggest DOLCE AND GABBANA LIGHT BLUE, this is light and i love it, i also like hugo boss deep red, i prefer this if you are going for a romantic meal or out somewhere nice! DKNY the original one is lovely too, but this isnt the be delicious range. armani 'she' is also lovely for a day to day wear! I hope this helps, however everyones preference is different, and perfumes also smell different on different people. Dont know if you care for this info.... BUT tips for perfume wearers, dont rub you're wrists together after spraying, this does something with the molecules (not quite sure on the science) so do a squirt on each wrist. Also apply you're perfume just under you're ears on you're neck, this is where you're glands are and where it makes the perfume smell different from person to person! Take care! amy x

I am not a big perfume user. But I do like to use this one body spray that goes along with my body wash from Bath and Body works. It is called Moonlight Path. It is a mixture of lavender smell. :) They do have a Eau de Toilette now. But when I tried that, it seemed a little strong to me. The lotion leaves a very nice smell also. Anyways, if you don't like driving to the mall, they also have a website. Here is a link to the products that I absolutely love!!! http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/sm-shop-by-fragrance-bath-and-body-works-signature-collection-fragrances--fi-2077826_cp-2073259.html

My favourites are Rive Gauche by Yves st Laurent (a real oldie, but a firm favourite). I also love the range of Poisons, can't remember who does them and can't get in the bedroom to have a look as hubby's asleep lol. I also like anything with Musk in it. I had a tester of cool water and hated it too. Funny how the same perfume smells different on different people. lol

Have you sampled any of the perfumes and colognes that Avon has available??? The nice thing about this company is the representatives bring the products to you. That could save you a 45 minute trip.

actually a friend of mine that I met online some yrs ago is my Avon rep, I should ask her for a sample of Celine Dions Paris somethingorother scent they carry cause off the campaign pg its quite nice....I never thought of that royal thanks! as for the 45 min trip, we seldom do it so thats why I'm asking of suggestions, I buy my perfum from FragranceNet so once I have a list of suggestions I'll slowly start buying mini bottles and the ones I like I'll buy larger and the ones I dont like I'll give away or to my daughter if she likes them LOL..

My two most favorite perfumes are White Diamonds and Obsession but who can afford to buy them. I get them when someone is nice and buys them for me as a gift.
