L'Amandière by Heeley

amazing longevity!

I love this. To me it smells like a sunny, summer allotment. A bit over grown, with hawthorn and brambles. This may sound strange, but its definitely not woods or meadows. There is green, slightly fetid undergrowth here. Amazing hot day, summer perfume.

Its staying power is pretty good as well- you can still detect it the next day! However I feel it maybe is a love or loathe it perfume, as my usually unbothered husband can't stand it... ( really dont get violet in it, as mentioned by another reviewer. )

Pros: lovely green smell
Cons: love it or loathe it.."

Tubéreuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

I love the opening blast of wintergreen which then settles into a fab tuberose. I'm not a fan of rose perfumes and although knowing tuberose was different, had avoided it up till now! I'm in love! Interesting so is my 5 year old daughter who declares it's her favourite!
Good perfume - and good staying power
