    Default Help with a valentines/birthday scent?

    I have my gf's birthday soon and valentines is also soon, I am looking at buying another niche fragrance, something special, I live in the UK and it's very cold at the moment, well, nearly always cold

    I am considering TV or Noir de Noir but want more input, it must have great longevity and good sillage.

    I like fruity/gourmands, I disliked musk and animalatic.

    Tried both, currently own TV. Has great longevity but can't comment on sillage as of yet. Tried Noir de Noir twice. The first time I sprayed it on paper and I enjoyed it, the second time I put some on my forearm and I couldn't stand it.

    You're buying the fragrance for your girlfriend, or for yourself?

    ln that case, L'Ambre de Carthage by lsabey. Despite its name, this is dominated by a big hit of apricot-jammy osmanthus.
