For me, it's tobacco.  I swear, if the perfumer even thought about using tobacco as a note, I can smell it  vissla

For me: PATCHOULI!!!  53

Sometimes I quite like it, whereas other times I absolutely LOATHE it.

Jasmine, I'm always surprised when I look at a perfume's profile and see that others don't smell jasmine as much as I do lol.

High pitched jasmine, and linden. Some perfumes that I thought I may like are ruined because of what smells to me like an overdose of linden.

Oud.  And when it binds with rose, I can forget about smelling/enjoying anything else.

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Orange!  This is good, because I adore orange, it's one of my favorite notes.   29

Licorice is another one.  This is bad, because I can't stand the smell of licorice.  I like to eat it in candy, but I don't like the smell of it in perfumes.  It ruins Pink Candy and a few others for me because the licorice note overpowers everything else.   grater

Cinnamon. Spicy, yummy, cinnamon.

Treemoss / oakmoss without the right amount of citrus oil to balance.

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Orange blossom tends to drown out other notes on me! To a lesser extent, so does lemon- Good thing I like both of them!

If there is lilly of the valley in it, that will be ALL I smell.

Oud would be second on my list.  It doesn't completely drown out all other notes, but not for lack of trying.

I often find myself unable to escape amber when it's in a fragrance.

Happiness is an unattended department store perfume counter, stocked with plenty of paper blotters, testers, and empty drams.

Patchouli, Gardenia, and Sandalwood for me.

Leather tends to overwhelm me in a fragrance even though I like it -

Vanilla at all times.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Vanilla too glad and vetyver.  Both i love fortunately  superglad

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Maybe it's psychological when I am aware of the note patchouli; I'm not a big fan of it but I smell it above all the other notes I would like in a perfume.

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Vetyver, on the smell strip and on other people, perversely it disappears on me.

On me Amber tends to dominate almost over other notes contained in anything I wear with Amber in it. Also Lavender.

Tuberose! It just seems to bulldoze all the other notes. Any fragrances based on tuberose all smell the same to me. I'm astounded when someone can pick out other notes.

Sandalwood!

When it's on my skin it also stands out very much. Sometimes I like it sometimes it kind of ruins it for me.

Re: Which note dominates all others to your nose?

Civet and coconut.
