They're insane! How's that for an explanation.Originally Posted by SlimPickins
Great story. I've had some similar experiences (though I'm single) - I've invited company into my fragrance closet when they've expressed some interest. The most recent time was two women at my house for dinner just two weeks ago. One thing that I think is true of everyone, our impressions are deeply affected by mood, timing, and context. I think clearly that your crowd was biased (perhaps by some of your own pontificating - I've done the same) toward non-traditional scents. That perhaps made them dismiss classics like Vetiver and Boucheron. I myself had the same reaction toward classic scents until just recently (too "cologney". I bet you could frame your presentation differently and they'd flip for those scents.
