Some background. I've been in this hobby since late 2011. Really actively pursued it in 2012, sampling upwards of 30 fragrances a month. Was also quite active in the first half of 2013 as well, but in recent months, I've laid back a bit. Been reading BN for a while, but started an account relatively recently.
So, 2014 is a new year.
When I first came to BN, I really didn't care for them. The Chypres. The mossiness was sort of a dealbreaker for me. Just too old lady. But as I collected vintage bottles, interspersed with occasional trips to retail establishments, I began to notice when the restricted ingredients weren't there, and I missed moss and clove and everything else. In spite of myself, I started appreciating and even liking the retro chypres. Vintage Chantilly, vintage 1000, Arpege, and
Sometimes the trouble with testing new perfumes is that it leads me on a trail to more perfumes which I turn also 'need to test'. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm going to have to look into a samples storage solution very quickly!
Much reading, much sniffing and more still is needed. I'm trying many methods to attempt to make scent cling more to my dry skin too, with only limited success.
