Thanks for investigating for me!

I emailed Amir and he told me to post it back to him and he'll look into it. Is that what he said to you too?

I must again recommend Pure Gold (1 Million) and Bondage Extreme Homme (Dunhill desire) from Milton Lloyd. They are both cracking smells

Many thanks to all who have recommended Perfume Parlour. I received Infused, the Prada Infusion d'Iris smell-a-like today - it's really great and to my nose it smells exactly like the real thing. It lasts longer than the EDP too. I'm going to try the Chanel-a-likes next.

Cacharel Liberte http://www.cheapsmells.com/viewProduct.php?id=8446 smells quite like Coco Mademoiselle... But I'm loving Lidl's Suddenly Madame Glamour (very good dupe!)

I can't find the Lidl or Aldi perfume in any of my loacl stores.

I do really like the M&S perfume range, they are really good value and very similar to more expensive perfumes .

In case anyone was wondering, I have tried the perfume parlour sprays and they are very good. Not as strong as the oils, obviously, but great when you miss having a "whoosh" of perfume spray!

I've discovered another Coco Mademoiselle smell a like!!!

Superdrug have some new fragrances in their Gift section, including one called Truly Beautiful http://www.superdrug.com/uncategoris...l/invt/254387/. £6.99 for 50ml, or a little one for £2.99. I also got one called Precious Woman which is a bit like Flowerbomb.

Smile Women Gone?

I went to re-order on PP one of my favourites WOMEN by D&G but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know if they have discontinued it? Hope that is not the case.
Can anyone recommend another similar one please.
When man sacrifices the Love of POWER for the Power of Love, there will be peace on earth.

Is it not just listed as D&G? Or "Double"? The best thing is to email them, they're very helpful.

Made my first PP order last night
3 x mens sprays
Bondage - Jean paul gaultier le male
Furnace - Fahrenheit
Liberate - 1 million

3 x 3ml mens oils
Bondage
Furnace
Liberate

Hope i got plenty of comments off the girls with this stuff on! anyone else used any of these one's?
i plan on using the oils with the matching sprays to boost the pulling power!!

Got a call to say they had no Bondage so ive opted for Issomist in place of it!!

I got the Liberate (Paco Rabane Million) in the spray for my husband. It is very nice indeed. I have also got him the Joop smell alike. He has got Joop in the real thing and they are certainly similar.

I have both oils and sprays for myself but my husband does not rate the oils at all. He says he cannot smell them on himself. I think it is probably that he cannot be bothered putting them on as they do require slightly more effort than the spray!

Hi Patty, thanks for the input, i cant wait to recieve mine now! ive just finished reading the whole thread and the only worry i have is that people have said that they haven't had any comments from other people with the PP stuff on and they only say that they could smell it on themselves! can you confirm that this stuff from PP does get you comments off people and its not only you that can smell it on yourself?

Cheers Kev
