Hey tdi! I don't care for sweet sugary fragrance, and generally despise fruity ones. I can send you my bottle of Lulu Guiness Life's a Bed of Roses-- Maybe it won't give you a headache.......sorry, it's aspartame in a bottle. I've never sniffed any Brittney frags so I can only go by notes and reviews.
Okay, seriously, I like SF Incanto Dream. It's a nice summery freesia peony, mild and inoffensive, with a distictive pineapple note. I've almost bought it several times, and put it off until this spring to enjoy this summer.
Another mall scent I've kinda liked is Maybe Baby by Benefit. It's too light and delicate for me, but what I smell is pleasant peachy musk. Just now I read the reviews rtamarie41 mentions a cream that would layer well called Touch Me and Try to Leave. The names may be marketing to adolescents, but the fragrance was nice.
I'm lucky, it turns out, although I don't get to see my mom much, she did fall for two of my very favorite fragrance-- kai and Rose Essentielle.
