I am a bit boring when it comes to smelling nice - well I smell nice but I always stick to the same smell therefore boring.

I don't like the floral stuff - why compete with flowers. 

I like more the spicy smell and even a hint of vanilla.  So stuff like obsession - hyp poisen  and so on are where I tend to play.  But like I say, boringgggggggggggggg.

I would like to try something new and I hate it when the lady at the counter throws all these different smells at you and you then end up so confused and buying something that really smells like fly spray when it hits your skin that you flick it on to a friend. 

So tomorrow I am going to flick out at lunch and buy something new (have to as I am down to my last spray; bugger, I sound like a dog). 

What is your favourite - what do you think I should test for smell - what is new out there?

ok cyl im sorta the same...

go to a dept store and have a play try some of the orientals they are warmer more musky spicy smells.

I wear angel by theiry mugler  nearly all the time but the chanel alleure sensuelle is devine, and i have a montblanc one  http://www.trademe.co.nz/Health-beauty/Fragrances/Women/Other/auction-155277987.htm that is very yummy as well.

I also like flowerbomb by victor and rolf

You can have stages where you love a perfume and then hate it.. lou lou being a case in point for me used to love it..

these are just a few you could try at a store. I really like to shop for fragrence duty free as you dont get hastled the same and can try them out. Not good to try to many at once tho.

The mnaria carey one is quite nice but not one id buy, but if you like hyp poisen you will mayb like these i used to wear hypnotic poisen for a while also.

do let them settle on your skin a bit but mostly the ones i buy i love the smell the instant i put it on.. the chanel one wasd like that... good luck let us know what you buy or like..

With strawberry net, no I haven't tried them, not yet but I hear it is very good.

The only thing is, I have left it to the last minute so need some tomorrow.

Oh my, sounds like so many to choose from.

I got nothing so I am going to be stinky tomorrow haha.

I wore the wrong boots today - I so cannot walk any kind of distance so I stayed in the office. 

Tomorrow I have to flick out Sylvia Park way with the boss - so I will suggest a bit of shopping before heading back to work.  Make her spend as well.  Smiley

Soooo I promise to be smelling super fine in about 24 hours.

lol yep i so not like red door...

I get so many comments about angel i wear it all the time, it to me is like the jpg is for you...

but having said that i do agree with you not everyone can wear it. on some people it is so sickly sweet as to be enought o make you nausious.

I do wear other perfumes but mostly angel..

That is good if you do cos youve got another opinion of how it smells on you.

all this spraying onto a card nonsence is no help.

You need it on your skin to know wot its like

Soap - I don't think I have used soap for near 20 years haha.  I use that liquid soap and body wash stuff.  hehe

I finally got some today along with a new ring and shoes, yet again I am broke.  But I had to celebrate as my transmission was not stuffed so saved thousands (phew).  I got Dolce Vita - giving that one a go.

Awesome

You've reminded me about the sheets we talked about.... I told Mr Pants what you were after, but wasn't sure about colour or size...and he saw the lady he gets them from who had only 3 sets in stock.

He brought home a king size set in 'taupe' it is a light coffee / latte colour.

They sell for around three hundred wholesale in her store, Mr Pants paid $180.00


If you want me to send them down, just let me know. They are the same as the ones we have, really satiny but crispy fresh at the same time. No stress, because if you don't want them I can just put them in the cupboard for the guest room.
