    I just bought the new updated Marc Jacobs Daisy (it’s a bit pink… can’t remember the name though..), and I LOVE it!

    Also loving Versace Bright Crystal, and any of the Chloe fragrances (but only for night time/ winter).

    • DDGD - Kate DDGD - Kate says:

      It’s called So Fresh!

  • laladaniiexo says:

    Marc Jacob Lola in Purple or Pink both are amazing floral smells, Also Jennifer Lopez – Deco has a nice coconut “just got back from a holiday in the bahamas kind of smell” and it is only about 40 dollers and long lasting!

  • Peta says:

    I love Miss Dior, it really wakes me up and makes me feel happy about the day ahead. When getting a new fragrance I love buying the packs of 4 or 5 mini perfumes and see which one I like the best wearing it for a while. Sometimes I love a scent in the store but hate it by the end of the day, so minis really work well for me, and there should be loads around at the moment for Christmas.

  • jaz36 says:

    I just bought myself Vera Wang Princess 100ml for $50 at United Discount Chemists, as well as the small Eclat D’Arpege by Lanvin for $35 at Terry White Chemists. Both smell gorgeous and make me feel beautiful and confident. :)

    • Amelia Murden says:

      I recommend Vera Wang Princess as well, my mum has a bottle & I absolutely love it! (I occasionally steal a squirt of it because I love it so much)

  • Maria Alyssa says:

    I love Victoria Secret Dream Angel for autumn/ winter… While D&G Light Blue for spring/ summer

  • Linda says:

    Both Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue and Nina Ricci L’air du Temps are my summer faves. Both light and airy. Light Blue is slightly citrusy and the Nina one almost smells like a waft of baby powder!! I dislike anything heavy or too strong.

  • Sandhya says:

    Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue is to die for! I just recently started wearing this scent and I’m always having people asking what perfume I’m wearing.

  • amyxx says:

    right now im really liking the ralph by ralph lauren. it smells amazing. (:

  • amyxx says:

    gucci guilty smells divine. but i think its a bit more of a special night out purfume. it smells more of romance to me.

  • glamshell says:

    Recently purchased J’adore by Dior on strawberrynet for less than $100. Loving it.
    Also rotating with Flora by Gucci

  • Juanita says:

    I’ve just brought 7 different scents from an online company called Symbolic Imports, they are all hand-made. I brought the following scents
    – Gingerbread Cookie
    – Clean Cotton
    – Brown Sugar & Fig
    – Dragons Blood
    – Fireside
    – Oatmeal Milk and Honey
    – Pink Sugar

    They all smell amazing in their own way .

  • KaijaS says:

    I love Romance by Ralph Lauren, since I got a small version as a birthday present. It’s sweet but not sugary, and not over-powering!

  • jarjar says:

    I love vanilla scents

  • luxebylulu says:

    My summer/day time fave has been around for a long time but I keep coming back to it – Aqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani.

    For winter/night time, I love Incredible Me by Escada.

  • Tess says:

    I’ve recently reawakened my love for Chanel fragrances with Coco sitting firmly on the top of the list; it’s got just the right amount of sensuality for Summer nights & Coco Mademoiselle does brilliantly for daytime.
    Fragrances: yet another thing I can never seem to have to much of!!

  • boo says:

    My fav is Hugo Boss Intense….but I think they stopped making it
    Does anyone know or have seen it anywhere? I’m rationing the last little bit in the bottle.


  • imoni22 says:

  • sexylady says:

  • jamieconnolly says:

    My fave fragrance of all time is Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf, smells amazing but its super expensive and now that I have run out I found another perfume that I love which is so cheap. Its christina aguilera’s By Night perfume smells sweet and fruity like berries with vanilla

  • MidnightBlueRose says:

    I love Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf too! Such a beautiful scent!

  • vavoom says:

    Burberry Body is amazing – I can’t imagine anyone not liking this one!

  • GraciRose says:

    Stella by Stella McCartney is my signature frangrance. People have told me that they can tell whenever I am in the vincinity because of the smell- but they always say that it is a very pleasant scent!

  • Tashy79 says:

    I just brought a new fragrance for my wedding. I am very sensitive to strong smells and tend not to wear a lot of perfume. I found a gorgeous fragrance by Jimmy Choo, they have 2, a parfume and an eau de toilette which is my absolute favorite. It is so yummy I am trying to stop myself from wearing it everyday before the wedding, and it is quite reasonably priced too.

  • Samdri says:

    Love Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf and Lola by Marc Jacobs

    • Bree01 says:

      These two perfumes are at the front of my collection at moment! Can’t get enough of Love Flowerbomb..just such a pretty smell!

  • lozzieheartsaparty says:

    Gucci by Gucci – heaven-scent! pardon the pun xx

  • amylim_1 says:

    gucci guilty men and women! The women is more of my “night” scent
    and daisy by marc jacobs is my daily scent
    hope that helps!

  • rachelmont10 says:

    Dolce and Gabbana – Light Blue (for daytime)
    Dolce and Gabbana – L’eau The One (for evening)

  • emsanta says:

    Rihanna’s perfume is beautiful!!! it’s sweet and cheap too xx

  • Tahrin says:

    My favs are:
    Paco Robanne lady million
    Burberry the beat
    Vera Wang princess
    Dolce and gabbana #3 l’imperatrice

  • Cleopatraargh says:

    I agree with what has been iterated about the gorgeous scents ‘Flowerbomb’ by Viktor & Rolf and ‘Princess’ by Vera Wang. My personal favourite is ‘Femme’ by Hugo Boss because it smells amazing (slightly musky) but it’s not too potent so I never get tired of the scent. My friends bought it for me for my 19th birthday and I’ve been wearing it ever since.

  • Carla says:

    I personally heart:
    Bright Crystal by Versace (approx $50 per 30ml)
    Miss Dior by Dior (not sure of the price)
    Alien by Thierry Mugler (approx $150 per 100ml)
    And last but definitely not least Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolfe (approx $120 per 100ml)

    Another great idea is to go to a perfume shop and purchase a hole heap of 15ml tester bottles, that way you can afford to purchase some expensive perfume’s and see which ones you like and those that adjust to your ‘personal scent’ the best (some perfumes as we all know don’t suit everyone). And you won’t get sick of wearing the one signature perfume. Although as one lady to did say to me along with being a woman and the beautiful creatures we are to make a scent one’s own is truly alluring…. xx

  • greenbeans says:

    I love Gucci Guilty Intense for women.
    I also am quite fond of Marc Jacob’s Oh Lola!

  • troon13 says:

    I luv Miss Dior Cherie – someone needs to buy it for me!

  • Lucky says:

    I adore Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture and Scarlett by Cacharel
    The top of my wishlist are JB’s Someday, Miss Dior Cherie and Princess by Vera Wang. Looks like I’d better start searching for a pt job to pay for these!

  • troon13 says:

    I managed to buy Juicy Couture on sale a few months ago and it smells great. The bottle is lovely too.

  • alexandrajayne says:

    Dolly Girl by Anna Sui!!

  • troon13 says:

    The new Bulgari fragrance sounds nice – haven’t had a chance to sample it yet.

  • shellstar says:

    my fav is 24 Fauborg by Hermes, its sexy and feminine and has a floral, amber scent. as far as expensive as Chanel, well it can be but if you check out some of the online stores you’ll be able to buy most fragrances at a fraction of retail prices

  • Razerpops says:

    Christian Dior’s “Addict”…it’s an oldie but goodie, I think. It’s a pink scent, very floral but not over whelming.

    If you’re looking even less expensive Sephora has a roller ball kit with quite a few good ones for $32 so you can sample a lot w/o a huge commitment.

  • mandyleigh says:

    Narciso Rodriguez for Her is my number one! :)

  • rochellemara says:

    I love philosophy ‘falling in love’ and kiehls ‘original musk’-i bought both overseas but I think theyre still available as Mecca Cosmetica. Falling in Love is sweet and lovely- a little like Angel but not as heavy-I first was interested in it after reading a story about a girl who wore it and fell in love, and this happened to everyone she knew-no luck so far but a great new perfume for me! Original Musk is also not too heavy but a beautiful soft musk.

  • Liza says:

    I love love love Flowerbomb by victor and rolfe. My bf bought me a bottle for v day a few years ago and I havent used anything since.

  • LoveCase1 says:

    I luv Addict by Christian Dior and Angel by Thierry Mugler.

  • Rebecca says:

    Essence by Narciso Rodriguez – really amazing pure clean pretty scent.
    Gucci by Gucci – the eau de parfam not eau de toilette – warm, expensive and elegant. Completely intoxicating fragrance!
    For the day time (especially Spring days) I love Vera Wang’s Flower Princess. It’s girly and fresh and totally unlike the rest of the Princess range.
    Elie Saab’s le parfum is also to die for!

  • thecatwhosawstars says:

    I adore Donna Karan – Cashmere and Prescriptives Calyx.

  • Wonderwoman says:

    I am using L’Eau de Neroli by Diptyque, it is so pretty in summer.

  • janelleb.xo says:

    I’m so in love with Harajuku Lovers G by Gwen Stefani, although the bottles are so tiny 10mL for $40 at priceline, but they frequently have half price sales on them! Lovers G in particular smells like coconut.

  • KR1 says:

    Every time I buy a new fragrance I always want to go back to my fave Dior J’Adore.. I always have a bottle going as it suits every occasion and season :)

  • GraciRose says:

    Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci is just gorgeous- and can be found at a very reasonable price at your friendly mychemist warehouse. i also love the cute bow-style bottle lid. just adorable!

  • Andy7819 says:

    Angel by Thierry Mugler is my favourite.

  • allybee says:

    Lanvin Eclat D’Arpege

  • Brides says:

    Ralph Lauren Romance, Pleasures Estee Lauder, Miss Dior Cherie. My favourite atm.

  • MelanieD says:

    Flora by Gucci smells beautiful!

  • bubbleybecci says:

    Definitely DKNY be delicious range – theyre sweet but not overpoweringly so and are just downright gorgeous!!

  • Jayzee says:

    Try Vera Wang!! Not the princess or anniversary etc., try the original. It’s just called Vera Wang – you may have to ask for the original. It’s almost shaped like a square shaped pyramid, light peach in colour and smells AMAZING, and lasts more than the day – you can wear the same top again the next day and theres no need for a second spray.

  • Supriya Pkn says:

    I love the L’occitane Spring cherry EDT which came out for valentines day….Ill be using up until winter. I also purchased the britney spears mini perfumes and they are not bad for a celebrity frgarance

  • Sparklehorse says:

    My two new perfumes this year were Wonderstruck Enchanted by Taylor Swift (smells fruity/cake like) and Hypnotic Poison by Dior for night time

  • Kendelle says:

    I’ve been wearing the same perfume since I was about 16/17. Took me about a year to find one I loved and wear it almost every day. Whist this isn’t for everyone I really liked the idea of being associated with a certain scent – and it works! Whenever I go home or catch up with old college friends they all exclaim “omg you smell like Kendelle – I’ve missed this!”.
    I wear Poem by Lancome. A little exxy, but I go online to save money and I’ve never had half empty perfume bottles going old in the cupboard, so no wastage.

  • Nikki Rajkovic says:

    My new lush fragrance of the moment is Versace- Yellow Diamond, it is long lasting and wearable day or night. I have people comment and tell me that it smells amazing. It is my signature scent for the season. I reccomend purchasing it from David Jones, as it comes in a splendid four pack, which includes a body wash, arm roll on and body lotion. It is just devine.

  • sarahssbabiee says:

    OMG! MY FAVE PERFUM WOULD HAVE TO BE: ANGEL BY Thierry Mugler . it comes in a cute star bottle and it smells absolutely amazing and its long lasting. its a bit pricy but its most definetly worth it!
    MY Other Favorite Fragrances would be: Reveal by Halle Berry, Twilight woods from Bath & Body works, Juice couture and Dior J’adore for women smells absolutely amazing. Try them, you”ll like them:)

  • GMeers says:

    My perennial favourites are YSL “Parisienne” EDT for everyday or special occasions; Christian Dior “J’Adore” EDP for evenings of formal events; and Versace Pour Femme EDP for everyday.
    Add to that CK One Summer and Versace “Bright Crystal” in warmer months, and Cacharel “Promesse” for cooler months :)

    …and I have about 20 other scents, some opened and some waiting for me. I love perfume!! 😀

  • TriedandTested says:

    My fave perfume for the colder months is Lady Million by Paco Rabbanne. It lasts and lasts and the smell evolves over the course of the day!

  • aislinmcleod says:

    My two favourites are Oh Lola – Marc Jacobs and Flowerbomb – Viktor and Rolf. They are both so perfect for me and I’m so glad I have them :)

  • Lucy Margaret says:

    I love Beyonce – Pulse

  • Marisa Robinson says:

    Givenchy ‘Dahlia Noir’ is my fave at the moment. It has a sweet, fresh, floral scent and it makes me feel ultra girly.

    It has been described as…
    Dahlia Noir or the “Black Dalia” is a powdery fragrance of dusty chypre – floral structure. Top notes of mandarin, pink pepper and mimosa lead to the extensive and intensive core of rose, iris and patchouli. The base wraps up the composition in a mysterious veil, made with notes of sandalwood, vanilla and tonka bean.

  • beautybabe1 says:

    My fave is Angel by Thierry Mugler, have loved it for years.

  • Amelia Murden says:

    Viva La Juicy Noir by Juicy Couture is a gorgeous scent, it smells exactly like berries! I got a squirt-card sample thing of it the other day and had it in my bag all day & it made it smell amazing.

  • prittykitty says:

    My fave is Jean-Charles Brusseau’s Fleur de Ombre Rose, which is sweet and floral and perfect in every way….except that DJs don’t stock it anymore! If anyone knows where I can find it shout out!

  • Aisha Aizee says:

    Well, i don’t know if this for you but my favourite is Estee Lauder’s Pure white linen :)
    All the best for you

  • RobbieC says:

    An oldie, but a goodie – I can’t go past Glow from JLo

  • neverendingdreams says:

    i’m really loving rihanna reb’l de fleur atm, get compliments when i wear it and it lasts well too
