    Default HELP! i need to know this perfume

    Please help. I have a photo of a bottle of perfume I simply have to know the name of. MY friend has this perfume but doesnt know where she got it. It is a beautiful smell with a coconut top note with hints of vanilla and lilac I think. We have taken bottle into shops and chemists to no avail. I have been on a mission buying some awful perfumes I wont name here in an attempt to mimic the scent but they are not a patch on this wonderful perfume, it lingers on your clothes and skin for ages also, I will not be content until I find this perfume, can any one help and how do I upload photo, the bottle is small and ovalish and there is a little fairy holding a wand on the font imprinted in the glass, it is a pale lilac colour.
    thanks
    sheila
    next day...uploaded photo, please see below...

    Sheila - you really need to post a picture of the bottle.

    In the meantime try this search function: http://www.fragrantica.com/colors/#FF33CC

    Thank you so much for your prompt reply, unfortunately this is not the perfume but am impressed how you tracked down another one with fairy and wand! I have tried inserting image from my documents but not sure how to, the link asks for a URL which I dont have, I can only upload from my documents.[IMG]http:///Users/mini/Desktop/]. I doubt this will work but please be patient until I find out how to do this, this perfume is so nice the world needs to know the name of it!! P.s any tips on how to upload image would be great.
    thankyou
    she....,.pps, have already tried the fragrantica colours website also

    @ Sheila,

    Thankfully (for you) none of us can access your desktop.

    You'll need to upload your picture to an image hosting site such as Photobucket: http://photobucket.com/ and then you can post the image here (via the link to Photobucket)

    Ok thanks for that, just a thought but could I upload from facebook or hotmail?? Oh and thank you very much for taking the time to find all these fairy related bottles of perfume which unfortunately do not fit the bill. I appreciate it. Will endeavour to upload photo now.

    Thank you for searching, can't believe photo came up, not a great photo at that. I guess the only way of finding out is if someone recognises it, but it is the most lush delicate coconutty fragrance that I have ever smelt. I will tell a few tales now, I went onto a perfume forum on coconut perfumes in order to find out some information and in my quest to replace this perfume I bought firstly noix de coco by yves rocher, this is coconutty allright but lasts for little to no time and you need loads of it, not a patch on this one, I then bought victoria's secret coconut passion as it was also recommended as lovely and cococnutty, again this was such a disappointment, it is sickly sweet and cheap smelling, and very vague, you have to squash you nose right into your wrist to smell it!! Both these perfumes were rated highly as best coconut perfumes on said forum. I am not wasting any more money but am going to try my best to find out about this one.
    ps sorry if my posts are all over the place but I'm new to this kind of forum thing.
    thanks

    Not an expert in fairies, but the bottle -- the sprayer mechanism in particular -- looks like it might be targeted at kids. Something by Air-Val, perhaps?

    I agree: what does it say on the bottom?

    I will upload photo of info on bottom as soon as I get my friend to bring bottle to work..again!...think she's getting fed up with me by now. I am very doubtful that this is a kids perfume as it is way too sophisticated and just too nice.
    thanks for your input

    terrific work poppy patchouli...a new member helping another new member is the spirit of Basenotes.

    well now sheila has me all curious about this Vanderbilt scent so here's what I found. The scent, but no other info. is listed in BN database:

    Oriental Floral fragrance for women. Reverie was launched in 1999. Reverie was created by Christine Nagel and Francis Kurkdjian. Top notes are bergamot, mandarin orange, peach and pineapple; middle notes are iris, jasmine, cinnamon and orchid; base notes are sandalwood, virginia cedar, tonka bean and vanille.

    Nosed by Nagel and FK ??? sounds very charming

    Wow -- here I assumed the scent was from some lesser-famed source(s) than Nagel and Kurkdjian! I'm staggered.

    What a surprising thread. Heaps and tons of thanks to She and Poppy Patchouly!

    Wah! I wish I hadn't read this thread, because now I want a bottle! Reverie gets lots of good reviews on Fragrantica. Interesting that neither of the BN or Fragrantica note pyramids include coconut, tho.

    I was so intrigued by the sound of this perfume (coconut!... although as msveronica9 says, coconut is not listed as one of its notes) that I decided to hunt it down. There was no sign of it in any of my usual online shops, so I had a look on Ebay and there was a bottle up for BIN. So I bought it. I'm really looking forward to receiving this one. I shall report back when it arrives.
