    Default What would I like...?

    OK - I'm calling on the massed experience of this community to give me some ideas on what I might like to try! Call me lazy, but you probably all know a lot better than me!
    I love the following: Mitsouko, Y by Yves St Laurent, Caleche, La Perla, Aromatics Elixir, Cristalle and, softer, Tresor and Ystatis. Whenever I wear Light Blue (D and G) friends at work comment on how lovely it is, which amazes me really as it is very different from those ones listed above that I think are more "me".
    What I'm looking for is that base note that is fruity/spicy ...I think! Rich. But not sandalwoody. There must be something that all my faves have in common in the base notes that I identify with!
    Sorry to ramble on, but am interested to hear opinions.

    I'd say that your tendention is chypre, according to your list.

    Why don't you check this ozmoz link for lists of fruity/floral chypres, I think you'll find smth

    As to my personal favs, I'd recommend the Chanels, the Diors, Armani City Glam for her, Diva Ungaro, Narciso Rodriguez and Vivienne Westwood Boudoir.

    If you want smth in the lines of Light blue, you might like Delicious Donna Karan, I Love Love Moschino Cheap&Chic and Eclat d'Arpege Lanvin.

    Good luck and don't forget to post the results of your search, it's always interesting!

    It looks like you are leaning towards aldehydic types that are somewhat oriental
    some would call that quality perfumey, but not bad at all if you can pull it off

    ever tried

    Coco Chanel, rich, floral, distinctly aldehydic, fruity with fresh vanilla undertones
    Ombre Rose by JCB aldehydic, rose

    Great suggestions from everybody and some unusual ones that I may struggle to find. But, yes, I have tried and love Givenchy III and Miss Dior and tested Paloma Picasso last week. I think I like it! Thanks again....many excellent ideas here.
