About tilleuil
I'm (relatively) new to fragrance -- after a 2-year obsession ten years ago, followed by a decade of wearing the same perfume without really thinking about it, I woke up one day and realised I didn't love the scent the same way I used to. Also, I don't want to wear the same perfume all day every day for the rest of my life.

I *used* to gravitate to two types of scents: (1) big stompy unsubtle incense/musk/spices/vanilla giants; and (2) icy pine/grapefruit/white floral mixtures that smell like anyone who touches you is about to lose a finger. I'm still figuring out what I like right now. I don't have a very sensitive nose so figuring out what I'm actually smelling is very much a work in progress.

Things I know I like: incense; amber; big roses; beeswax; pine or fir; darker vanilla; jasmine in moderation.

Things I don't like: foody or sugary fragrances; big juicy fruit notes; "fresh" or "green" scents (invariably turn sickly and rotting on my skin); "clean" scents and light musks; strong citrus notes.

I wore the EDT yesterday and am wearing the EDP today. They are both lovely scents -- especially the EDP -- but I'm finding that when I wear them, I generally wish they were a little more substantial. (And a bit less sweet.) I was hovering between the For Her EDP and Mitsouko EDP this morning. Very different moods. In retrospect, I should have gone with the Mitsouko. It has a wonderful depth and solidity to it. It feels grounding, anchoring. For Her just floats around me in a soft, somewhat powdery

A place for all this to go

by tilleuil on 6th January 2020 at 06:11 PM
My dear partner dislikes fragrance and is allergic to many things, and most of the people in my life aren't terribly fussed about fragrance. This means my recent enthusiasm has no outlet. It's going to have to all go here.

The first perfume I ever owned was Angel. In 1996, a family friend gave me two 5mL bottles of the parfum just after it had launched. I didn't wear Angel much -- it was too strong for me -- but as a little girl the chocolatey-foody scent was delicious. A few years
