My favourite go-to is Opium by YSL. I tend to vary my perfume depending on my mood and what I’m wearing, but one of my favourite every day scents is Karma from Lush.

For my wedding I wanted something different, so I wore Aura by Thierry Mugler

I wear the same one every day so I’d say it’s my favorite…it’s Le Labo Patchouli 24

newbiebee1977 :  Viktor and Rolf – Bon Bon. I love it and will be wearing it on our wedding day in 2 weeks and my FH adores it one me. I prefer fruity over floral.

When it comes to perfume, I find one that I love and wear it daily for a good 2-5 years before the itch to find a new scent kicks in. My daily go-to for the past couple years has been Viva La Juicy Gold Couture. Before that, it was Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift, and before that was Dreaming by Tommy Hilfiger, but I stopped wearing it when I learned that he was a racist prick.

I love perfumes, particularly perfume oils, so I have quite a few favorites among my collection.



The Torture Queen by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab (BPAL) – White amber, vanilla musk, white tea, ambergris, gardenia, and chrome 


Woods and Florals:

Midnight Garden by Alkemia – Tuberose, lily, honeysuckle, gardenia, moonflower

Antares by Alkemia – Nicotania, oakmoss, cedar, white patchouli, Queen of the Night

Indigo by Nest – Moroccan Tea, Kashmir Wood, Cardamom, Wild Fig



Titania by BPAL – white grape, white peach, iced pear, musk rose, sweet pea, moonflower, snapdragon



Snake Oil by BPAL – Indonesian oils and vanilla

Lyonesse by BPAL – Golden vanilla, musk, stargazer lily, white sandalwood, grey amber, elemi, orris root, ambergris and sea moss

Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain (and its dupes) – Golden vanilla, benzoin, incense, cedar, pink peppercorn and bergamot


Other Gourmands:

Pachouli Cacao by Alkemia – Dark cocoa, bourbon vanilla, and blonde patchouli

Irrésistible by Alkemia – French macaroon accord, sweet almond, and bourbon vanilla

Asp Viper by BPAL – Snake Oil with King mandarin, myrrh, and almond

Coral Snake by BPAL – Snake Oil with blood orange, blood apple, lemon peel, plumeria, and red gardenia


Of these I would say my most often used daytime fragrance is The Torture Queen. I haven’t really considered a wedding fragrance yet, but I think I might look for something new to wear.

newbiebee1977 :  My current fave is Chloe eau de toilette. I tend to go for florals so that one is perfect for me. Otherwise I love Chanel Coco Madmoiselle or Miss Dior.

My go-to for the last few years has been Poppy by Coach. I love florals & vanilla scents, this one is beautiful and light enough to wear every day.

My favorites are Marc Jacobs WOMAN (his original perfume – gardenia, mid-notes of jasmine, white pepper and honeysuckle and a musky base), Bond No. 9 Madison Square Park (grape hyacinth, huckleberry, prairie dropseed gradd, red leaf rose, red hunter tulips, teakwood – smells like florals on a backdrop of crisp greens) and Bond No. 9 Highline (bergamot, purple love grass, indian rhubarb, red leaf rose, tulips, grape hyacinth and bur oak – has a green grass and wildflower kind of smell but fresh).
