    None. I was just in there buying a gift and I think I can say I honestly dislike them all. They are not inexpensive either.

    i want to buy my girlfriend a nice scent for Christmas, nothing wacky but something different than anyone else around here(in mandeville....30 miles north of New Orleans)...i only thought of Vic Sec because she likes pink...any chanel or others that would make her swoon if given for a gift...i need something kinda nice...im in the process of sweeping her of her feet.. :-) unfortunately i am no authority on womens frags!

    It's really nice of you to want to
    make her feel specal and that you're
    seeking advise here, thughtful .
    I'm thinking that since she enjoys
    VS Pink she would probably like
    Pink Jasmine by Fresh. You can find it
    at your local Sephora with matching body
    products.

    I would also add
    Lancome's Miracle and Miracle So Magic
    if you cannot find a Sephora or Pink Jasmine.
    And if you're looking for a Chanel - I would
    suggest Chance or the new Chance Eau Fraiche

    Best of luck .

    I agree with the suggestion of Chanel Chance - if she likes Pink it would suit her well I think. Many of the other VS fragrances smell so similar, so I'd say skip them. You could try Coco Mademoiselle for a change of pace - it's a little different from the fruity floral of Pink but still young.

    You could also try a fragrance like Juicy Couture - it has the same feel to me as Pink.

    coco m and juicy coture are both great smelling frags, but my mom wears coco m and that only reminds me of her and juicy was a big fave of my ex-girlfriend, so.....ha ha....but they are very nice indeed...i think i am going to go and smell chance tomorrow and see what it is all about!

    jdnba I only really liked one VS frag. I'm not a big fan of them either. I'm with smellymonkey in that they all smell similar to me. I was so surprised when I smelled So I Love cause it didn't smell like anything else there. Most of their frags smell like a perfumed fart to me.

    Anyway, please try

    Lolita Lempicka

    Princess...Vera Wang

    Lamb...Gwen Stefani

    Elixir des Merveilles...Hermes

    Alien...Theirry Mugler

    DKNY Delicious Night

    Delices....Cartier

    Flowerbomb....Victor & Rolf

    Light Blue....D&G

    I am not familiar with any of these, but, for someone who likes Pink by Victoria's Secret, Michael Edwards' fragrance system recommends these three:

    AMARIGE D'AMOUR by Givenchy
    CHRIS 1947 by Christian Dior
    EAU DE CAMILLE by Annick Goutal
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Fifi Chachnil (the bottle is quite over the top girly and so is the scent)
    Nanadebary Pink (may be hard to find at the moment)
    I second, or rather, third, Chanel Chance
    D&G Light Blue is pretty, too!
    How about Petite Cherie by Annick Goutal?
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Since she likes all things pink, then I am sure she will love Vera Wang's Truly Pink.
    My sister wears this frequently and it smells lovely on her.
