Welcome, I am new here, too! It could be that some of you share the same tastes, you are also all living in the same environment and may be involved in similar activities. All of those make a difference in what attracts me to a scent and what doesn't. I really notice it because I have lived in several different climates and cities/towns. Of course, I don't want to smell like the next person, either, so look for things that no one else is wearing and never wear the same scent as anyone I'm around a lot.
I noticed Sephora is carrying a new lighter version of Vetiver, called Vetiver Sport. Sounds fabulous!
