Seems like I finally got me a fragrance twin!
That's what I like: warm and in-between (except for the days when I am in the mood for a cold and distinct chypre!
or hot and loud oriental!). You will not know how often I get thoughts about having a poor taste as well as become hesitant after having read the reviews or not finding ANY in the Directory!
So glad you found the one that you liked yesterday. Did you get a big bottle or a small bottle? What do you like about it, the beginning, or the whole thing? Any particular note done well? Does it last on you? Any comments from your near and dear?
Here is what has worked for me: do not rush to buy it right away, give it a couple of more tries. If samples are not available at the particular store, come with 2 or 3 empty vials and a candy bar and ask a SA if you can take some of the fragrance from their tester bottle home with you to see how it behaves 20 and more feet away from the counter. If you still like it and get up in the morning thinking of it -- you have found it! Invest in a bottle, wear it with abandon and spread the LOVE! We have so many members on Basenotes doing the same thing: musse was the first one to share her love with KenzoAmour (my SotD today) and Oswald Boateng Bespoke on the board, shadesofbleu introduced me to Boucherons and Habanita, Tinker loves her Carons, Tovah spread the word about Cabotine, kewart can't say enough of the good things about Cristobal, Lalage was gracious to point me in the direction of Rococo, Lady_in_Black was so enthusiastic about Maria Amalia, even thisbekevin can't seem to hold his love for Paris Hilton. This is just a few examples, but I suppose you get the picture (and sorry guys if your name did not get mentioned!).
I have a sample of Lancome Attraction and sure need to dig it out and retest now after you post.
Meantime, I was thinking about Chanel Chance, Ungaro pour Femme, Visari Fleurage, Charles Jourdan Inspiration, Les Copains (new, black box). Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!
