    Oh, I see it's closer to 6 years old than 5. My mistake!

    What are your top picks among recent mainstream releases marketed to women - for women or yourself?

    I actually really like the female version of Allure (but on women)

    Ode a la Vanille sur la route de Madagascar and Ode a la Vanille sur la route de Mexique are available for sample on theperfumedcourt website.

    I do see them show up eBay occasionally and every now and then on the Basenotes sales threads.

    I think Bottega Veneta and Narciso Rodriguez can't do wrong when it comes to their releases over the last few years, in particular:

    - Bottega Veneta Eau de Velours
    - Bottega Veneta L'Absolu (this just came out - absolutely fantastic)
    - Narciso Rodriguez Fleur Musc
    - Narciso Rodriguez Pure Musc (also a new release)
    - Narciso Rodriguez Narciso (white bottle)

    Thierry Mugler's Aura was a let down in my opinion, but Alien Eau Extraordinaire, and Angel Muse are winners in my book.

    Prada Candy Gloss I like. It smells like a sweet rose wine, very cheerful.

    Dior is lacking on the femme front lately, in my opinion. At least J'Adore L'Or is glorious, regardless of iteration. And Hypnotic Poison EdP is very good too.

    Another like for Bottega Veneta original and Knot.

    I also enjoy the mainstream By Kilian "Kissing". Simple, creamy lotv with a sugary base. Got it for only € 42 around Christmas.
    Currently wearing: Iris Ganache by Guerlain

    Alien Oud Majesteux
    Angel Muse
    Bottega Veneta Knot
    Eau de Neroli Dore
    Galop d’Hermes
    No. 5 L’Eau


    I also still need to try Bvlgari Splendida Iris d’Or and Magnolia Sensuel.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    I’ve been very pleasantly surprised by Miu Miu l’eau Rose. I’m not taken by Rose scents in general, but this is very airy with a freshness that dries down to a lovely soft musk base.

    Angel Muse I will also agree with - the best flanker (IMO) since Le Lys.

    Bulgari Eau Perfumée Au Thé Noir, killer smoke note.

    +Narciso edp

    I keep seeing recommendations for Stash. Celebrity fragrances aren’t on my radar much, but I think I need to try this one.
