I've blind bought and sampled and studied notes and accords and still have such little understanding of what it is I like in what I love or love in what I like. Let alone what I love or like in what I hate.
But I can say, definitively, that I've found four amazing, spellbinding, scents that I will continue to buy until I can no longer find them and that is more encouraging than any of the veteran enablers you'll find in any forum.
On top of that I've got another 5 I've yet to really give a go that I'm extremely excited about, based upon preliminary testing!
Current finds and absolute loves and, I firmly believe, must tries:
1. Platinum EgĂ¶iste, Chanel
2. Quasar, Jesus del Pozo
3. Thallium, Jacques Evard
4. Encre Noire, Lalique
