I do use cumin in cooking, but the thought of it in a fragrance doesn't appeal to me at all. I don't want to smell like I'm wearing my dinner. In the "plummy" thread someone mentioned Rochas Femme, and I recall that people have said the reformulation has a distinct cumin note, whereas the vintage I believe does not. Some have said that cumin gives them a sweaty BO note, while others seem to like it. I can totally understand cardamom, with its spicy camphorous odor, in perfume, especially in ripe fruity ones, and cinnamon, and anise, and even pepper. But cumin? I just don't get this one. What do you think of cumin as a perfume note? Anyone care to enlighten me?
