I don't know anything about it, sorry. As a general advice I may present my personal findings, while other guys may have collected different experiences.
Perfume has to be applied as a complement to natural odors which eXclude definitely overpowering washing detergent, fabric softener, shampoo, deodorant and the like. Want to smell OF leather, buy a leather jacket! In order to generate a comfort zone around You the perfume should be close to the edge of perception. That's how most of those functional fragrances in said cosmetic products work. Find out the current trend and go for more-of-the -same or develop a different style of Your own.
I personally fall for big hits of the 70s, Caron - Yatagan for example. It's odd, namely a bit grimm by todays standards - as it already was back then - but neither overpowering nor boring. Caron - Third Man is another which may be of interest, quite soft. Van Cleef & Arpels - Tzar, manly ele- and arrogant, give it a try.
