    Default mix between amour and she?

    Hi Basenoters!

    I really need your help here... I'm looking for a new fragrance, one to wear on summer evenings. I'm thinking something along the lines of a mix between Kenzo Amour (wich I feel is too "wintery") and Armani She (wich is too bland). I don't want anything fruity at all, and not too much florar either I think. I would like it to be warm, sweet but not foody, creamy, possibly a bit exotic... Maybe a woody musk with some vanilla/tonka bean?

    I realise the discription is somewhat vague but could use some pointers, I have sniffed my way through a lot of the designer brand houses but so far no luck.

    I really can't stand too much amber in a perfume.

    Scents I've been suggested by the sales assistants and not liked(among others...)
    -Thierry Mugler Angel
    - Calvin Klein Euphoria
    - Burberry the beat
    - Gaultier Classique
    - Guerlain Shalimar
    - Gucci Guilty
    - Laura mercier vanille gourmande and almond coconut (along the right lines but too "foody sweet")

    I'm so tired of sniffing my way through tons of perfumes! :/ Does anyone have any suggestions?

    much love!

    Take a sniff on Chanel no 5 Eau Premiere. It has some "cotton"-feeling, just not as much as Kenso Amour, and has the same darknes as Armani She. - And if there is a possibility, test the perfume of nr 5 as well. - Both are very beautiful, and working well in hot weather, at least on my skin.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    I saw the name "Margareta" and immediately thought of Trussardi Inside Women in relation to your question (I think it was Margareta who "discovered" it!) -- I think it falls smack between Armani Elle and KenzoAmour.

    How about Crystal Noir by Versace?

    Here are a few you might like based on your preferences:

    Hypnotic Poison - Dior

    Sweet Oriental Dream - Montale

    Amaranthine - Penhaligon

    Maybe one of the Comptoir Sud Pacifique vanilla scents e.g. Vanille Coco.

    Oh, Twolfie dear, how nice of you to remember! I agree with you about your suggestion, but Trussardi Inside Woman is not for sale in Sweden, so emser would have to look for it on travels. - I never managed to get a bottle of it, I just used every drop of my little test!

    Sorry, both Twolf and emser, I don't log in so often on Basenotes nowerdays, that is why I haven't answered your PM:s. But now both of you have got answers. Great link for parfymistas in Sweden, emser!!!
