My "no-list" is incredibly long and usually has something to do with chypres. *I've tried soooo many of them and they all end up smelling harsh, bitter, sour, dusty or musty on me. *Over the years I've learned, but I still try newer ones from time to time. *It's always "nada" though. *The house of Guerlain is also a big no-no for me. *I can only wear Shalimar and Winter Delice- nothing else truly agrees with my skin from that line. *Carons are also generally no-nos for me. Something off-putting in the bases of both these houses it seems. Whatever it is, they clash terribly with my chemistry and smell like anything from burning rubber to chlorine. Very disappointing.
While it's great fun to try new or new-to-you fragrances, the fun is certainly cut short when something smells awful or you end up with a migraine (ugggh!) *Still the only way to be sure is to try it on your skin. *So...we persevere I guess. *
