It would be interesting to read our Ladies' opinions on this.
Personally, I think it is a wrong question for this audience. My strong belief is that we are here exchanging fragrances and fragrance-related information, learning from other's experiences and encouraging each other. I have never been a cheer-leader in my life, but often times on Basenotes I feel like one.
I have a handful of signature scents, therefore it does not bother me at all to give a name or even a decant of the fragrance that I am wearing at any given moment. On top of that, I have about 50 in the category "Others". I suppose, it reqires love and compassion and understanding to appreciate a nice composition. And also about me: once a teacher -- always a teacher! I am pleased to share my knowledge and to hear other people's thoughts and impressions, and I am always happy that a scent suits them to a T. I feel a bit upset when the scent does not "sit right" on them, but I am not giving up, either. It happened with Poeme on my SIL -- she loved it on me, but on her it was a cheap and loud yellow acacia, somehow "sun tired" and "too much". Where did the mimosa and the honey go, I do not know. And you know what? We kept trying together: two attractive girls (and age does not matter, really!) were having a blast at the mall. Sicily soaped up on her, #4 was too sweet and too in the face, Faubourg 24 was too woody, and Versace Yellow Jeans just fit the bill, in all senses, too! After that she graduated to Yves Rocher Mimosa (not without the influence of this board) and now planning to get a sample of Mimosa pour Moi (after a chorus singing praise to it here). This is as good as it gets and this is progress!
Good luck on your article and welcome to Basenotes! What fragrances do you like and why? And what is your "signature(s)"?
