    Default Please suggest a floral or floral oriental with good longevity

    Hello all, I've been lurking for a while and now would like some suggestions for a floral or a soft floral oriental that you think has good longevity. I don't care so much if others can tell I'm wearing perfume, but I sure want to know it! Thanks for any and all suggestions.

    Dior Poison is a luscious floriental, easily available, and everyone will know you're wearing it, for sure.

    Probably not so good for the office then, huh? What works on me so far is Coco Mademoiselle (but it does for everybody, so...) and L'Instant de Guerlain. I'd like something not so mainstream as the Coco, although I love it.

    Frederic Malle Noir Epices. Carried by Barneys in the US; a 3-pack of 10ml travel atomizers is available for ~$95. Tremendous lasting power. There's also Mugler Alien, which you can find all over the internet. Really depends what you like... so many could fit this category. You might want to do some reading research on several of the fragrance blogs.

    Hi,
    Pure Poison is a nice white floriental...you could also try Organza by Givenchy if you like sweet florientals or L de Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka if you like a floriental vanilla scent.

    Thanks for the replies - I have a Dior Poison sample pack (Original, Tendre, Pure, Hypnotic and Midnight) ordered from the Perfumed Court and will try samples of the others mentioned, too. I appreciate your suggestions!

    Etro Shaal Nur Is a soft oriental you might enjoy. It isn't too in your face & it doesn't have a strong chemical odor.

    How about Boucheron Trouble? I tried this recently. A floral/citrus/amber/vanilla oriental without the knockdown power of Poison.

    You can but this online at many discount retailers as it is discontinued.
