I've had Clinique Happy, but it doesn't seem to smell very nice on me now. It smells really heavy.

I'm wanting something light to wear during the day.

Simply by Clinique is light and lovely.

I like the Body Shop oil perfumes.

I'm pretty sure they've got a few citrus ones

I like Bright Crystal by Versace. Light, simple and reasonably priced.

I wub.gif this.  It's gorgeous - feminine, fresh and floral but not overpowering at all.  I get lots of compliments.  

Good luck - I spent an embarrassingly long time trying to choose a perfume in the store and ended up with a Jimmy Choo perfume that I hate.  My mum bought Bright Crystal just based on reviews online and it's stunning.

Jo Malone, the orange blossom is divine. You'll need to go into DJ's Parth for this though.

[/size]Victor & Rolf  Flower Bomb   - I L O V E it!!! So so yummy!!! (but not so orangy)


I found it was a 'heavier' smell too so just do a little spritz and it lasts all day.

My very favourite perfume is Armani diamonds, it is gorgeous.  People have stopped me on the street to ask what I'm wearing.  It has top notes of lychee and raspberry.  http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Giorgio...monds-1292.html

My other favourite is Versace pour femme, it is light and floral with Guava notes. It's lovely http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Versace/Versace-1336.html

My absolute favourite is Miller Harris Tangerine Vert, but it's a bit on the expensive side.

I'm currently coveting DKNY Be Delicious.

This is mine at the moment too. It's a pretty 'simple' fragrance. Light without dissappearing in 5 minutes.

My all time favourite is Love In White by Creed. Very fresh & floral, with a citrus note. I wore it on my wedding day.

It's at the high end of the price range but you don't need to use much and it lasts. The whole Creed range is beautiful.  It's a Paris-based perfume house but DJs have recently started stocking it. Well worth the splurge!

Oyedo by Diptyque is my favourite citrus scent - the mandarin scent is probably slightly stronger than the orange in it though. I love this scent, stays all day.

Try Armani Code, that has orange blossom I think? I have it and its nice, but a tad heavy.

I second the Jo Malone if you want something orangey.  If you're near a big DJs, go in and smell the whole range, because some of them mix and match really well together to make a bit of a signature scent.

Hugo Boss Orange is lovely

Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood. Just gorgeous.

Hugo Boss Orange?
Not orange but its floral & fruity ... it is not overly flowery as I cannot wear perfumes that are...its just light and fresh and a lovely scent.
One of my favs for everyday wear
Which reminds me I have run out of it! must get more!

I also use Rose The One by d&g too.  Good for everyday wear.  Not too strong.
