Philippa, Bulgari is an expensive brand; but I think their scent is pants.
I didn't like Patchouli even in the 60's. I used to love a rather heavy scent called Faberge. Love Fenjal shower gel, but am a bit allergic to it.
I wish the scent and shower gel companies would just use simple herb smells like rosemary.
Love the scent of Lily of the Valley. I remember getting into a lift when I worked for ITN in the 60's, it was full of suited and booted middle management (male) who had all over-used the after shave; the smell was so 'high-pitched' that my eyes were watering as I got out.
