There are now 3 threads up & running with basically the same question , posed in various ways on 3 countries (Italy, France, Russia) and having 2 entirely different answers.
What French/Italian/Russian women actually WEAR isn't all that much different from what American women wear unless it's a brand you can't get locally. Which is why Russian women USED to wear the local stuff before they could get their hands on the Western perfumes.
What makes you THINK of a country is an entirely different and to me a 10000 times more interesting question.
Name the scents of things that make you think back immediately of France/Italy/Russia/Turkey (or Paris/Rome, Moscow, Istanbul) etc. and NOW we're talking.
Outside niche fragrances, women start wearing the same stuff with some variations.Boooooring
But maybe I'm wired differently.. nonetheless it's still interesting to see the lists and compare differences.
PS: I'd love to have someone tell ME what scent reminds them of Amsterdam (outside marihuana of course )
