I am an average guy in my late forties with a not-so-average appreciation for fragrances. In my experience:
-One person's perfume is another person's poison.
-There are more nice women's scents than men's.
-Powerhouse scents can be art, but hard to wear.
-Italian scents are nice and well-behaved.
-French scents are adventurous, but often go astray.
-American stuff is loud, and can be fun.
