Topic: Help finding similar Ylang Ylang and Myrrh fragrance, please.

There is a Bath and Bodyworks lotion called Sensuality that claims to be ylang ylang and myrrh. I love *<3 * the smell of this on my skin and have been looking for a similar perfume for years. I honestly can't tell what makes it work, but it works.

Any and all suggestions welcomed!

Someone suggested Black Orchid to me today. http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1018.jpg Tom Ford Black Orchid

Is this right? Any other ideas?

I have never tried the lotion that you like, but this fragrance has prominent myrrh and ylang ylang http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.7670.jpg Girard Bouquet D’Orient

The Tom Ford is patchouli and truffle, so it does not fit your description

I still have the ylang-ylang scent from BBW. I love it too!

Give http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.36.jpg Givenchy Ysatis a try. No myrrh but it's heavy on the ylang ylang.

Hey, I just met you and this crazy...I love perfume, so call me cuckoo!

No suggestions, but I had and LOVED that fragrance, sigh.

Has a ton of myrrh, but I don't detect a particularly strong presence of ylang.

the spice must flow

Re: Help finding similar Ylang Ylang and Myrrh fragrance, please.

Thank you! I'm going to go hunting for these this week. I do wish B&B Works would just bring that line back!

Re: Help finding similar Ylang Ylang and Myrrh fragrance, please.

I remember loving this one too, I hope someone can find us something similar.

I am so blessed!!!

Re: Help finding similar Ylang Ylang and Myrrh fragrance, please.

There are lots of perfumes with both these notes but depending on what other notes are there they will be entirely different scents.

Take http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.11214.jpg Agent Provocateur L'Agent, http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1745.jpg Jil Sander Jil Sander No 4 , http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1131.jpg Oscar de la Renta Oscar , and http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.15.jpg Robert Piguet Bandit ...all so different, but all contain those 2 notes.


Something I love right now and you might also enjoy has the myrrh but no ylang-ylang...http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.10553.jpg Kate Walsh Boyfriend

Yes!  Gone are the days of the good Bath and Body Works scents.   Darn.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.36.jpg Givenchy Ysatis comes about the closest. In vintage.
