So, a dear friend of mine recently heard of my perfume obsession and asked me to find her the perfect fragrance.
She's such a unique person that I feel like my own ideas come short, so I thought I'd ask you guys since you always come up with the greatest suggestions.
So, some details about the friend:
- 28 years old
- Former punk. She's mellowed out in her "older" years and since she had her child, but still a day doesn't pass where she's not wearing a leather jacket, lets say. She still has the attitude, she's political, she doesn't take any shit. That said she's not in anyone's face, she's calm and smart and very articulate.
- She's a brunette (not sure this matters, but I hear people say stuff like "this is such a blonde/brunette perfume, at times)
She's open to masculine, unisex or feminine releases, niche or designer, basically I have free hands.
My own thoughts lead me to something with a noticable presence but not too sharp (not soapy, for example, or aquatic), something more unisex-masculine than straight-up feminine. My first thought was Bvlgari Black, but that felt stereotypical and uninspired. I think my best idea so far is the original Egoiste by Chanel, but I feel like there's something better out there that I just can't think of. I might not even be looking in the right "category" here.
Help, oh perfume oracles!
