I don't have a different scent for winter. I love VS's Heavenly any time of the year.

i sniffed about 8 new fragrances at Sephora last week - all of them were too floral for my liking.

i'll have to take a sniff of the D&G. on Monday night, my co-worker dragged me into Abercrombie Kids at the Eaton Centre and i fell in love with their Hadley scent. of course they don't have a store in this town...

You're welcome.

It is slightly more of a skin scent. When I tested I did my first spritz, walked around for awhile, and went back for a second spritz on my wrist. The scent really came out then. They do make a lotion, which I would like to get as well. It does last longer when layered.

Hope you (and Rou) like it!

I rarely even wear perfume, but I want The One after reading that description! I'm hoping Ulta has it next time I go so I can give it a sniff.

I find if I'm not super careful to barely spritz on perfume it makes me sneeze all day. Hate that because I have two that I really like, but rarely ever wear.

That description reads all loveliness, but, to me, it deciphers as a fruity floral, which isn't my taste for winter.

There's another version of The One called L'Eau The One and this is what Basenotes says about it:

anything with bergamot is my kind of scent!

I only wear Philosphy's Amazing Grace and Pure Grace. I wear them year round and choose which one I want based on my mood for the day.

Me too...I don't wear perfume much, but I love vanilla and amber body butters.

Bodycology also makes a nice body mist in "brown sugar vanilla" and "toasted vanilla sugar".

Heavenly is a gorgeous scent, isn't it? I discovered it back in high school about 11 years ago and I was hooked, although I can't wear perfume much due to my sensitivity. I believe it has some vanilla notes...it's just a very classy, feminine scent.

^ All of those smell horrible on me. Picking out perfume can be a huge challenge.


Springy, I hope you find it and can test it. I adore it, and I do find it warm and wintery, on me. I also love that it is spicy yet light.

What I absolutely can not stand is a store that will not let you test perfume on your skin. Who is the jack hole that determined spraying on paper was better? Wth! You need to give a perfume 20 min to make sure it does not change on your skin.

When I do test, the best way, I make sure it is my last stop of the day. I need a shower, to calm the loudness, as soon as I get home.

I do envy those who smell good in a number of scents.

Heh, most perfumes are specifically designed to be appealing when sprayed on paper and sniffed within the space of a few to a few minutes. But my guess is there's probably a practical reason why they won't let you spray on skin.

FYI "L'Eau" spinoffs are usually sheerer, sweeter, shorter-lasting fragrances, often aquatic, marketed for use in summer. D&G's ad copy confirms that this is what they're going for. So, this probably isn't a typically wintery scent.
