    neroli, green notes and musk.

    So this is the fifth day and I am wearing Bois des Iles by Chanel. It starts with aldehydes. I used to think that I didn't like them, but oh dear I do. I read on a Russian natural perfumery blog a little ad for a class which mentioned among other learning objective "learning which smells are the keys to which emotional domains and why."
