It sounds like it didn’t make the list but I recommended Un Jardin Sur Le Toit by Hermès. They have a whole series that all are “Un Jardin Sur...” which is “a garden on...” and my favorite is “on the Roof” but check out the entire series. I like it also because it’s not as well known in the US so you don’t end up smelling like everyone else.

I suggested Amarige, Flower Bomb, and La Vie Est Belle! When I was in kindergarten, I thought my best friend's mother smelled heavenly (lol!). Towards the end of high school, I was finally brave enough to ask her what perfume she had worn for my entire childhood and she told me it was Amarige and that it had been around for years. I bought a bottle in college and have had it in my perfume collection ever since! I like to wear it in the summer months and I switch between Flower Bomb and La Vie Est Belle in the fall/winter. Can't wait to see what you pick!

I only noticed this because J'Adore Dior is my #1 fragrance since I first wore it on my wedding day, but the image is for Miss Dior, a different scent. Just wanted to point out in case anyone is shopping based on the photos!

I love Light Blue, Chanel Chance, Walking on Air by Kate Spade but my absolute favorite scents have been from a company called Riddle Oil. You can get a little kit with 6 or 7 vials of oil for like $25. All the scents are wonderful and the kit is nice if you like to switch your scent by season -some of them are heavy and some are very light. I always get complimented when I wear them.

Flowerbomb is my absolute favorite!!
