i love rock&rose the smell is grate i heard that some people say smells like laundry but to me it actually doesnt or maybe its because it doesnt smell like laundry on me!but over all its amazing perfume. i also love d&g light blue works so well with my chemstry, it makes perfumes stronger than what they are so i dont use strong perfumes usually but i have to say light blue is amazing. how's marc jacob's daisy? i so want to get it

Today my mom bought me The One by Dolce & Gabanna and I was soo happy cause just recently I smelled it for first time and I really liked it, and veryyyy rarely I like perfumes right away and I was obsessing about it.
I never thought I'd like it thogh before I smelled it cause first the color of it and the bottle make it look like a strong perfume and Gisele was the face if it whom i don't like at all lol and it's Dolce & Gabanna so I thought it would have nasty strong smell like Chanel #5 type of perfume, but it's quite the opposite

I smelled also the new Hugo Boss one Femme and i don't remmeber how it smelled, but it wasn't bad.

And also I thought I'd like the new "Elle" by YSL cause I was in love with the ad and the commercial, but ofcourse you can judge by that so I didn't like it at all it was kind of strong, so I was dissappointed.

I always check fragfance because of ad too
It's very big disappointing when ad and smell don't match. I didn't like Elle either but ad was nice..

Thanks for your opinion.
i would suggest you try scents that are labelled as "unisex", if you are feeling shy. many of the smaller perfumers have unisex scents, and some of the classics for men have been used nearly as much by women, i think - Guerlain's "Vetiver" and Boucheron's "Jaipur" for men, dor instance. i love both of Hermes' "Jardin" scents: try "Un Jardin Sur Le Nil". also Guerlain's "Aqua Allegoria" series is great: nice, unusual, and not super complicated, generally.

another thing to consider is a really good perfume will likely reveal itself over time, on your skin, with your specific chemistry. Try one on, and walk away for 45 minutes or so.

the best perfume is one that suits you, male or female, and one that makes you feel sexy. i bet your boyfriend wants you to feel sexy, right?

wow, I love Guerlain's Vetiver! yum!

just_me, some other possible choices are:

Chanel No.19
Calandre
Bois des Iles
Vent Vert
Caleche
O de Lancome
Fendi
Un Bois Sepia

I don't wear many 'girlies'(save some strong classics like Fracas, Opium, Vol de Nuit etc ) & I love to wear mens' scents too - like the aforementioned Vetiver, Habit Rouge, Chanel Pour Monsieur, Dior Homme, Bois D'Argent, Floris Lime.

Unless it's a super-masculine fragrance, my husband never seems to mind.

Jo Malone's French Lime Blossom is really good, IMO. I like Floris Lime too but it only lasts two seconds on my dry skin. lol!

Wow, please post impressions when you try/buy them... I'm not familiar with those yet. I'm so horribly slow with the newer scents i'm almost always a few years behind sched. sampling things.

I did sniff a magazine advert scent strip for Prada Infusion D'Iris that smells amazing but I'm trying to narrow my collection. It is tempting.

both the marc jacobs and stella mccartney are florals, and great for a younger woman or someone who is just beginning to sample perfume. i had some of the marc jacobs body butter that i used exclusively on my feet, just out of the shower.

i tested MP last week-after the initial citrus shriek it morphed into a more masculine version of Stella which left me shrugging since i'm well and over Stella...
