Yep...it is. It's a long story but can anyone suggest a perfume that is sweet and warm? I have worn Red Door for years and that is how I would describe its fragrance. However, I need to move on. I have been looking for a very long time and can't seem to find one that screams " ME". Once I was in a casino and a woman walked past me and I noticed her perfume but she was gone in the crowd before I got to ask her what she was wearing. I don't even know if that is a thing to do to a stranger...walk up and ask them what they are wearing. Still, it was perfect. I would have done it but whether she would have told me or not will never be known. Sigh.

So, I have seen various perfume names on this board before and some that I didn't recognize. I have smelled all of the usual ones in the department stores and haven't found the " one" yet. I am perhaps looking for something not in every store.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
Joycie

I think Emeraude is sweet, even though I dont wear it. Most of what I wear is fruity smelling, like Apple, Peach, etc. And yes they actually do make it, you just have to find it. Those fruity flavours/scents might work better, if youre looking for something simple and sweet.
Funny, many years ago, I wore some apple stuff on a date. We stopped by his house afterwards and while we sat in the den watching tv, his dog came up, smelled me, and wouldnt stop licking my neck, lol. He must have liked it too.

I think perfumes can smell differently on everyone because of body chemistry. I have used only one brand for many years now, Jessica McClintock. I've actually been approached by strangers, men and women asking me what I am wearing. Some say they've tried it and it doesn't smell like that on them, so it's individual.

Try Amarige (Givenchy) or 273 (Fred Hayman).

I'm agree that the smell of perfume depends on individual body smell.
Now I've found my new addiction - Midnight Poison by Dior, try it

I do not wear perfume too often, but when I do it's Max Azria's BCBGirls Nature. You could always try some scented lotion for variety. I love Bath&Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom body cream, it smells great(I get lots of compliments on it) and I am moisturizing at the same time.

Yes, perfumes smell differently on everyone. They will even smell differently after 30 min - 1 hour after you put it on your skin. So don't try it at the counter and think that is "IT". Spray a little bit on, DO NOT RUB IT!!!! Then go shop for awhile. THEN smell the spot. As for "not rubbing" the spot you spray that is something that we always used to do w/ our wrists. I found out when I worked cosmetics in school and befriended all of the perfume people that it breaks it down and can drastically change it and not always for the better.

I prefer Coco by Chanel. Classic and timeless. Not too strong, not too fruity, not too musky. I can not wear the eau do parfum as it is too strong for my nose. I have to stick to the "toilet water", aka eau de toilete. I'm the one that if I can smell what scent someone is wearing they are wearing too much.

Hi Joycie -

If you go to fragrancenet.com, it will tell you the components (fragrance notes, classification, scent strength, etc.) of Red Door (or any other perfume) that you like. This might be helpful as the Red Door notes are listed as roses, orchids, honey, etc., so perhaps if you search on their site for others with the same notes, moderate strength and/or romantic fragrance (as it describes), you can then gather a list & visit a fragrance counter to test them for yourself.

There are also 7 Arden Red perfumes, so perhaps even switching to another in the same line might interest you.

Good luck. I love perfume. Even wear it if I'm not leaving the house... VV
