    Talking Help required from the experts!

    Hi!
    I was hoping someone on here with some more experience than me might be able to help? I am looking for a new perfume for Christmas (for myself!!) but I'm quite fussy.....however, I have recently tried 2 perfumes that I really like and they seem to last:

    Emporio Armani Diamonds
    Dolce & Gabanna Pour Femme

    Do you know of any other perfumes that may be similar to these in their 'make-up'/ingredients that I could try as well? If not, do you know what is the best way for me to go about researching this?

    Thanks so much in advance for your help!

    Welcome Cherry Blossom. I don't know what either of those smell like, so can't suggest any for you, but if you look those fragrances up in the search box, you should be able to discover the listed notes. Armed with those, you can use the fragrance directory search, choose the advanced option, and enter your list of notes, the results wil be a list of perfumes that contain your specified notes.

    There are some knowledgeable folks who will suggest some similar fragrances for you, i'm certain

    You should try Nina Ricci perfumes like Nina and Love in paris. Miss Dior Cherie is also very nice.

    Yes as teardrop stated there is a feminine version.

    I think Black XS for Women may be comparable to Armani Diamonds for women, as Armani Diamonds for Men and Black XS for men give off the same fruity chocolate vibe to my nose at least.
