Topic: any suggestions please - looking for some new favs
Hi, I have a sensitive nose, a bit prone to hay fever however I love wearing perfumes. My nose is not well educated and I'm only beginning to identify individual notes in a fragrance. I have learned that aldehydes stink on me and my favs seem to fall into the groups of Cyprahs, citrus aromatics and orientals. The only florals I like seem to be single scent frags like rose, lily of the valley - Yardley type of stuff. I love anything with a cologne scent of 4711.
I'm wearing a sample of Chance today and it smells nice and comfortable on me.
I'm having particular trouble finding orientals to wear. My favs are Dune and Opium. Opium I can only wear rarely now because the top notes are quite sharp on me but I wear it for the warm dry down. Dune I can wear anytime and love it. I like hypnotic poison for the base notes but it's a bit sweet. I used to like Samsara but can't wear it now -far too sweet. Maybe my nose is becoming more discerning in middle age?
Are you confused? I am, maybe I should be forget about orientals but I love the dusky, warm dry down.
