Ain't that the truth -- and evidence that the fragrance arts are a field of exploration, because our individual preferences are so varied, even within a connoisseurist crowd.
As with most things, we can look for patterns, even though we're extrapolating from a tiny sampling:
4x Caron Tabac Blond
3x Chanel Bois des Iles
3x Guerlain Mitsouko
3x Guerlain Shalimar
2x Guerlain Jicky
2x Guerlain L’Heure Bleue
2x Chanel No. 5
... and, big surprise, there are no celebrity fragrances! (insert sarcastic smiley)
From your list, 30R, I see you prefer a certain sharp or fresh edge to your wardrobe. C Rose loves classy feminine scents. Teardrop appears to like what I think of as "big" fragrances. LadyM is into rich juices. In general, the classics remain popular overall.
We've done these lists every now and then, and I know my top ten change by at least 50% over the time before. The consistency, though, is that I like my fragrances to sweeten me up and mellow me out, and if they’re green, so much the better.
