    Re: Looking for scent suggestions

    What a ridiculous comment about Hypnotic Poison!
    If you like that one then wear it with pride.
    You might also like Tom Ford's Black Orchid.

    Good afternoon! I am covered in factor 15 so no scent until this evening.
    Glorious, warm day here and it's a Bank Holiday too. Busy doing as little
    as possible.

    Strangely enough I would give my right arm to sniff Aqua
    Manda by Goya again - just for the memories.

    Re: Candied oranges / fresh mandarin oranges scent

    You might just fall in love with Anne Pliska, (as I did!)
    Orangey, vanilla, ambery goodness. Mandarin and bergamot top
    notes and amber, vanilla and patchouli (only a smidgen) in the base.

    Clarins Eau Ressourcante (tranquility) is my mood lifter in a bottle (a very nice easy-to-handle
    blue one at that!)
    Notes of lemon, basil, iris, benzoin and cedar produce a feeling of calmness and...

    Bonsoir mes amis!
    We have had a very sunny day here and I have neglected the chores
    so as to get my quota of vitamin D!
    Roma is my scent of choice - formidable (as they say in France!)

    Re: Suggest please

    It's a bit left-field, but you might just enjoy Sienne l'Hiver
    by Eau d'Italie. The perfumer is none other than Bertrand Duchaufour
    and it has many unusual notes of earth, leaves, iris, musk,...

    Re: Small plastic perfume atomisers?

    Thanks everyone. I shall try Amazon first, as I want to avoid international
    shipping if at all possible. It's amazing to me that there are so few outlets in the
    U.K. for perfume accessories.
