I am a lover of artisan perfumes. Even through my (now many) years as a student I have always found space in my budget for luxurious artisan perfumes. I love wearing a different scent every day, and every now and then during my day to stop and smell my wrist, enjoying the complexity of the scent and tracking how the scent develops throughout the day (as a good scent should). My favorite perfume is Ormonde Woman by Ormonde Jayne, a British perfumery. Their scent Champaca is also a lovely daytime perfume (flowery and green) though I tend to prefer woody and spicy scents, like Ormonde Woman.
I am also looking into purchasing some organic and completely natural perfumes that should be less harsh for babies that like to rest their little heads on mommy's neck. This seems to be a good list http://www.natural-living-for-women.com/organic-perfume.html I think I will stick to Old Milk for a little while, seeing as Alia likes it so much, though I suspect my hubby is not so thrilled. I find myself drawn to the smell as well these days, probably something hormonal. http://www.natural-living-for-women.com/organic-perfume.html
