Topic: Orange blossom smells like rubbing alcohol to me ??
We recently had a very bad heat wave and I moved all my perfume out of my bedroom from their drawer and into the living room where the AC is. I was worried because of the difference in temperature within a short period, so I decided to test a few of them. I sprayed Emeralds and Diamonds on a paper and noticed what I thought to be a strong alcohol scent. Within a few minutes it was gone, it smelled exactly how it usually smells. Tried a few other and they all seemed fine (some older and not even as well taken care of as the Emeralds and Diamonds) then I got to Oscar and noticed the same thing. My husband said he smelled no alcohol at all, to him the smelled as they normally do.
I looked up the top notes and they both contain orange blossom. Could that be what I am smelling ? How strange I never noticed it before, and am I the only one who thinks orange blossom has this scent (or, perhaps I really am just smelling alcohol, lol) I have only recently begun to notice isolated notes in perfumes, I find it quite tricky !
