Trying to find a perfume...

Ladies (and gentlemen)

I have booked myself a ticket to visit my old man in England soon and thought that as the trip is two days after my birthday perhaps I should treat myself to a new perfume while I'm passing through Heathrow...

I have at the moment Angel (Thierry Mugler) and Hugo Woman (Hugo Boss)

I love the Angel but it is quite intensly spicy and I've been refilling it since I was 16. The Hugo Boss one is nice but I've had it for a long time and I think the smell has lost it's zing.

I would like to find something which you could put to these words:

fresh
peach
floral
spring
innocent
feminine
fairy

(I know fairy is an odd one to put in there but I always imagine that fairies would smell really lovely if you could catch one)

Basically I don't want to smell like a granny but I do want it to be something, well, nice!

Any ideas?

Unfortunately I don't think they'd let me take that on the aeroplane!

There is nothing like the smell of stale ale and kebab!

Can you get a perfume to match that smell?

Thanks! I have seen that one mentioned a few times when doing some research online...
I really don't know how best to descibe the smell I want so I know that the descriptions I put up are a bit general...

Avon's "Honesty" is everything but the 'peachy', but then 'floral' AND 'peachy' is a tall order.

Perhaps if you check the Body Works type places and look at their body sprays, you might find something. If not, you could find things to mix?

I'm a Vanilla Fields, French Vanilla, Vanilla Musk, etc kinda person myself, so floral is a hard one for me to think of.

Good luck.
