This is the blog of a female fragrance newbie who became interested in scents in late 2007.
The famed Mitsouko. It does not take long before a novice to basenotes becomes familiar with the popularity of this perfume. It is described as a scent that is hard to know, but it is said time and time again that if you just keep trying, you will come to love it. How could I resist? I had to try it.
I first smelled this in January at a Nordstrom counter. I did not spray but just smelled a blotter. Blech! I thought, and moved on.
But I had to give it another
I got a little package in the mail today, which made me happy. It held a one ml sample of Guerlain Mitsouko EDP and 2.5 glass spray bottle of Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee.
I started with the Jardin. I am in love with Un Jardin Sur le Nil. It is my daily perfume and I would eat it if I could. I wish I could drink it. I just love it. But I also want to experiment. So I decided to try another Jean Claude Ellena scent.
I put a healthy spray in the inner crook
