    Re: Light Soapy Perfume for Women?

    I would suggest EL Pleasures.
  2. Re: Which fragrance has been in your 'drobe for the longest time?

  3. Re: If you had to pick only 4 perfumes to wear from now on, forever...

  9. Re: Perfume virgin looking for my own perfume

    I second Dune (Dior). It manages to be classic but eccentric at the same time. It evokes a feeling rather than leading one to identify individual notes as it progresses.

    Re: What smells "gothic" to you??

    Aromatics Elixir and The Body Shop's Japanese Musk. It's the herbal, autumny, earthy smell that causes this association, I think. Although intensely floral scents also qualify--Boudoir for example.
