what’s a good perfume for me?

okay but what is a good perfume that smells like spicy, but also slightly sweet? i hate overpowering perfumes on me especially when it’s a floral note. please help me out! 

Re: what’s a good perfume for me?

@bootiesspaceI'd definitely check out Comme des Garcons. Original, 2 Man, Jaisalmer, Rouge. Spicy, not too sweet, not heavy, light on the florals if there are florals at all.

Hi @bootiesspace - Jo Malone London Poppy & Barley Cologne comes to mind that fits your description. 

Re: what’s a good perfume for me?

@bootiesspace the closest I can think of is Lancôme La Vie Est Belle. Not over powering to me. I get so many compliments when I wear it. Ellis Brooklyn RAVEN Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL is really spicy with a hint of sweetness but don't spray it more than once. It can be pungent. KILIAN Paris Princess Eau de Parfum is warm and spicy but very sweet. Not overpowering at all though.

Myrurgia Maja is not on Sephora or Ulta and it is not overly common in the states. It's spicy with a tangy sweetness and isn't overpowering if you don't overdo it. It lasts all day on me and is inexpensive. 

Re: what’s a good perfume for me?

Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne is my favorite spicy/sweet scent.  Wood scents in general are good for winter.  Juliette Has a Gun Another Oud 3.3 oz/ 98 mL Eau de Parfum Spray is another good one.

Re: what’s a good perfume for me?

@bootiesspace Try Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum, that’s the first thing that came up mind with your description.
