    Unhappy recommend something sweet

    Hi. Can someone recommend a perfume for me? I am a girl in my mid 20s. I wouldn't want a perfume that older women use or young teenage girls. I guess i don't like anything that's 'too strong' and i'd like it to be sweet and not very floral. Other then that i like a lot or perfumes but i cant find one that suits me. I think i like vanilla and lavender? Or simply something sweetish

    Thank you

    Hi, welcome to basenotes! The sweetest ones l've tried recently are Nina by Nina Ricci, Allure Sensuelle by Chanel, & YSL Parisienne, all quite sophisticated yet youthful scents l think. Good luck!

    Hi postage and welcome to Basenotes.
    I find Angel by Thierry Mugler is very sweet when a woman comes near me wearing it, but it's very popular from the amount of people I know who use it, between the ages of around 25 up to mid 40's.

    Sonia Rykiel's Belle en Rykiel is a really nice sweetish scent that I think would suit a 20something. It has lavender notes up top & vanilla at the base.

    It's available reasonably priced at internet e-tailers too.

    Have you tried the Benefit line? Laughing with LeeLee, Lookin' to Rock Rita, etc. There are 6 in all, I think. I can't remember which is which right now but one of them might fit the bill for you.

    Gucci Rush is sweet, if I remember correctly. And a very nice fragrance.

    L'Instant and all its flankers from Guerlain could work. Also Dior Addict, CK Euphoria, the Lolita Lempickas, Kenzo Flower and Amour.

    If you're a bit more daring you could try Shalimar, it is vanilla with bergamote and smoke. Classy, special and absolutely ageless.

    Lol, I see many pink sugar recommendations incoming. You'll probably like it if you're young and not an expert in fragrances. I'd try to say something different and recommend Burberry Brit.

    Here's a unisex that's personally too sweet for me. You might want to smell Gaultier 2 by JPG. Very sweet (too sweet for me) with a very nice vanilla. Just go easy on the sprays since it's quite potent.

    For lavender my fav is The Healing Gardens lavendertherapy .Vanilla - Vanilla Fantasy by Body Fantasies, or a Bath &Body Works vanilla . Another to try is PI by Givenchy marketed to men it is a sort of fougere/vanilla that works well for anyone regardless of gender.I have read a review that said the whole family of four father,mother,son,daughter all wore it .

    Jardins de Bagatelle by Guerlain (it's floral but sooo sweet and young and happy)

    Burberry The Beat is pretty sweet (huh, I rhymed...), and I've just recently discovered L'Artisan's Premiere Figuier Extreme, which is also sweet, but interesting too. And it's not particularly floral.
