hello!

i'm new to this forum and relatively new to perfume :) i haven't purchased a full bottle of anything since high school, and right now i'm in the samples/decants stage, still trying to distinguish notes and figure out what i like.

what i do know is that i really like osmanthus; here in hong kong osmanthus petals are frequently used in desserts, and it's a scent i find both beautiful and uplifting. i don't know of many perfumes that prominently feature osmanthus though. i have tried and liked hermes' osmanthe yunnan (gorgeous, although more like osmanthus-flavored tea) and ormonde jayne's osmanthus (too heavy on the citrus). if anyone has other recommendations for osmanthus frags, they are very much welcome!
