I was given a bottle of 'Paris' YSL edt as a 'thank you' present and I hate to be so mean, but I really don't like it. Now I am in a difficult position-I either thank the person for their thoughtfulness or I just let them know that I am notoriously complicated when it comes to fragrances and it is not a good idea to give me scents? Of course the only option is to thank them gracefully... and give the bottle to a charity shop. I need a scent for spring. It may sound silly to use the word 'need', I know... but I am someone who loves the feel of a fragrance around my person; I can go without makeup- but I love the comfort of a nice scent. The trouble is.... I love my Mitsouko in Winter but, when it is hot I can't wear it.
I am hoping that the 'noses' of TTB will be able to help me.
I have compiled a list of scents that I like/dislike, perhaps you can find 'my' fragrance for Spring
Scents I like
wood (as in the inside of wooden cupboards and drawers)
eucaliptus (as when a breeze blows over an eucaliptus grove)
the stem of a freshly picked tomato
spices (cinammon and cardamon are my favourites)
sun dried linen sheets
Scents I don't like
anything fruity (as notes in a perfume) especially strawberries, apples, citrus.
very strong floral scents
