Well that makes sense, Moore, my friend! I know exactly what you mean. You find these fragrances strong and realise they might be overpowering to other people, but you love them, so hard cheese! LOL! Good for you! I'm a bit like that with J'Adore. I know it's very strong, but I could bathe in it, so those around me will just have to share in its gorgeousness or put a clothes peg on their noses. It's funny how you go off certain perfumes you used to love. Years ago, I loved DKNY (the original skyscraper bottle). Now I think it's a bit tacky. Once, while wearing it, a bloke at work said that when I walked past, the scent I left behind was like a spring shower of rain on freshly cut grass. Apart from the fact it's hard to believe a British guy would even say something like that without laughing, it made me love my DKNY even more. But not now. It is all subjective, though. My Elie Saab may be someone else's rotten eggs. How common is it for women to wear so-called men's fragrance and vice-versa? I'm thinking of trying Givenchy Gentleman mixed with Agent Provocateur. How do you do this layering thing? Just squirt both at once? One on each side? Leave an hour inbetween? Advice, please oh scent aficionados.
