I wanted a new fragrance that I hadnt worn before as my wedding day fragrance. I love so many perfumes so it took a while to work out which one. I got samples from the shops of the perfumes that I though would be appropriate that I liked. I too wanted something that would last all day but not be too overpowering. I got FH to smell them as well (after I narrowed down the choices a bit). Of course he said some of them smelt like fly spray
. We both picked the same perfume - Estee Lauder Pleasures Delight. I got it in a pack with the body lotion and shower gel and the scent lasted all day. I also had a little sample of it too but didnt end up using it.
I love wearing it especially for hubby to remind us of our beautiful tropical wedding.
As for getting a perfume for your BMs I agree with the other girls - its such a personal thing that you should let them pick a perfume for themselves.
