  1. You’ve got me wanting to try both this one and Soleil Rochas. I like orange blossom and patchouli, and I don’t know if I’ve ever smelled osmanthus.

    Have you ever tried Queen by Queen Latifah? I’m guessing it might be too sweet for you (I haven’t yet decided if it’s too sweet for me), but it’s a sweet, boozy tangerine to my nose. Can be found for $10 American around here. (I seem to have veered off-topic, but I read your review of Rochas Soleil Rochas and noted that you liked orange, and thought tangerine might be close enough.)

    1. I have heard great things about Queen from Australian Perfume Junkies. I am a secret fan of overlooked celeb scents. I adore Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights and Hilary Duff With Love. If there’s tangerine in it, I’m interested. Thanks so much for the tip! Watch this space!

  2. My husband bought B by boucheron by mistake for me at the airport (I requested Boucheron Femme). Thought it was a tad boring at first, but like you I have come to regard it as an interesting day scent and very elegant in an austere sort of way. The bottle is very beautiful too. Really look forward to reading your blog every day by the way!

    1. Thank you so very much Jasamber, and welcome! I am delighted that you like the blog. Yes i agree that b by Boucheron is slightly more unusual and that if you wear it to work you’ll stand out for all the right reasons! Your husband got it right!

  3. Got a sample of this finally, and it is niiice. Have you tried it on a warm day? It started out rather light and floral, but a few hours later it was quite apricotty (to coin a terrible word, rather than rework the whole sentence). I’m surprised it didn’t sell better, but perhaps most people do buy perfume based on one quick spritz and few minutes of consideration.

    1. Hi Laurels, I know exactly what you mean by apricotty and I rather like apricotty. I don’t like peach in perfumes, but I find apricots are much denser and richer so I prefer them. I think B by Boucheron is underrated and I wouldn’t turn down a bottle any day of the week! So glad you like it.
