I’m trying to use up some Angel body creme and was told I smelled like someone’s mother in law. Code: Old lady.

I like vanilla and woodsy sort of scents any suggestions? What makes you smell really good besides a shower of course?

You can check on E-bay for frags, but it's possible to get sold fakes there, particularly of perfumes that are really popular.   But things like rollerballs and mini's are generally safe, as it doesn't really pay fakers to fake them.  Discounters like Fragrancenet, and FragranceX are safe places too, and lots of people buy frags through them. 

 

And yeah, vanilla and woods.  And ambers like Ambre 114 ( <--great stuff )

 

Wintertime is definitely the the time to start bringing out the big stuff and the heavy hitters.  Things which would be way too much in warm weather.

Just got a couple Jo Malone samples to test out. This past year I used the Maison Margiela Jazz Club perfume and Tonka 25 from Le Labo.

I bought this honeysuckle perfume from Bath and Body Works one or two years ago. It’s my favorite scent! For lotion, I also prefer a more floral scent. My favorite is the Sleep scent, also from Bath and Body Works. I have this deodorant that’s lavender and charcoal. Haha I really love flowers

So many people have said black opium and I agree. It’s amazing.
I recently brought police miss beat fragrance and it’s exactly the same as black opium at a £20 price tag

My mother wears black opium lol! I prefer the original Opium- it’s not as sweet to me.

Youth Dew is pretty good

I like “Tabu” it’s dark and moody and long lasting and pretty inexpensive for a rich fragrance!

My love is Must by Cartier, but they discontinued it

There are some good dents with the profile you describe at the Body Shop too, if you have that in your country.

Personally my favourite perfumes at the moment are Neon Rose by Floral Street, and  Bergamote 22 by Le Labo (this one is aspirational though because it's super expensive, I just have a couple 1mL sample vials)

 

But I only like to wear really clean, fresh and green florals. I don't want to smell like sugar, or any food (I will make an exception for some citrus scents), or overly musky/spicy. I like sandalwood and cedar, but as a bottom note rather than the dominating scent (though I absolutely adore those woody scents on men!)

 

To find a new scent you like I really recommend purchasing coffrets of sample sizes of a brand's offerings, so you can test them out in your day to day life rather than just going off of your initial impression in store (which isn't going to capture the mid or bottom notes of the scent anyway).

I hope you throat punched whoever said that to you—how rude.

Personally I love Ralph Lauren’s Romance, and I get compliments when I wear it. I like Burberry as well, but apparently no one else liked the way it smelled on ME because no one ever says anything when I wear it. Fragrance smells differently on different people, as we all have our own unique chemical makeup, so finding the perfect fit is usually about trial and error. IDK if you read a lot of magazines, but you could try sniffing the scent packets that are added to mags as free samples, and seeing if you find one that suits you. I’d definitely recommend finding a spray bottle in the store and trying it out IRL before spending a bucketload on a full-sized bottle, though.
