...How about Crabtree and Evelyn's Nantucket Briar?

Victoria's Secret

...I like Love Spell,Coconut Passion ( very nice cheap option when I want to smell like a coconut cream pie!) :lol: . I also like the Heavenly line pretty well, and Very Sexy is okay ( though the name is totally stupid...). Rapture is okay if you like rich older style floral orientals like White Diamonds and Black Pearls. I really love some of the ones they've semi discontinued, So In Love ( a lovely rose) , Basic Instinct ( a sort of warm , ummm,slightly skanky? earthy floral?), and the long gone garden line .

Which perfume will be your next buy ?

...Probably Ted Lapidus Fantasme as a blind buy. I'm also stalking something at my local discounter.

Long Lost Perfume

They're pretty good especially if you nab a sale.
...I have bought the LLP Casaque, Memorie Cherie,Tuxedo and Bond Street. I passed the LLP Bond Street to my mom as I didn't think I really needed both versions they were quite similar.I think that they are pretty close to the originals ( I have some of each of the last three mentioned) of course some things aren't duplicatable nowadays - nitro musks, some of the sources for raw matieriels just don't exist any longer due to extinction, over harvesting,or no market for the out of favor natural essence. Thus small family operations that farmed a product may no longer be there as the fashion for the product shifted they had to as well or not survive.

Comments on perfumes: compliments and insults

...Today I was wearing Liz Claiborne Spark and had brought some parfum spray for a coworker. She said it smelled like Lysol spray to her. But that she didn't mind smelling like that (l did have a bit of Orange Sapphire still on from the day before the added citrus may have altered the effect somewhat) I hope she likes it. I did give her a purse size .
