I am sure this has been previously discussed at some point, but isn't it amazing that even well-established perfumers create fragrances with incredibly harsh topnotes? One would think that with thousands of ingredients to choose from perfumers would select, at least, a neutral opening note in terms of harshness. Since so many frags are purchased at retail outlets by the tester strip method, why risk the first note being a harsh put off?
