One aspect of this new hobby that I really enjoy is, even as I think I am starting to get a fix on a fragrance, the next time I wear it, I might detect a new note or trait I had not noted (and I do take notes) the last time I wore it. As an example only, I've worn one particular fragrance 4 times. Here is my verdict after each wearing:
1-nice; try again
2-ugh, what is that note, and why did I think I liked this?
4-Flat out gorgeous. Buy a bottle
Now, that is the most extreme case of fluctuation I have experienced. But with many others, I am routinely experiencing differences between wearings.
Do fragrances change from wearing to wearing? If so, what causes that? Or is this just a newb experience? As you get more experienced with fragrances generally or with a specific fragrance, do they (your fragrances) become more fixed, immutable for you?
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful end of summer/early autumn weekend.
