This is my first post on basenotes. To introduce myself, I am a 17 year old guy that has been hooked on to the fragrance hobby for about two years. I have sampled many designer fragrances and a few niche ones as well. I have also been browsing basenotes for a while, and have learned much and have gotten a chance to talk with many fine individuals.
I feel like his post is sort of the end of my journey regarding my fragrance hobby b/c I've frankly run
The other day I found a bottle of Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers for a dollar, which was enough reason for me to buy it. When I looked it up here on BN, I came across a review whose author opined that Sunflowers was in some way "wrong for these times," or words to that effect--that in this period of worldwide economic and political malaise it was pretty poor form to wear a fragrance as blithely 90's-optimistic as the Arden product.
Now, I'm not so much interested in the question
