After a long term "scentless" relationship with a woman whose migraines could be triggered by perfumes/colognes, I'm again a candidate for smelling good.
I took your collective advice (after much reading) and made the following purchases:
Chanel - Egoiste
Givenchy - Very Irresistible
Green Irish Tweed - Creed
Terre de Hermes
Vetiver - Guerlain
YSL - M7
The GIT and Terre arrived a week ago. The GIT is fantastic....really knocked my socks off! Terre is quite nice, but strong and long-lasting. The rest arrived today and first impressions are all very good, but a little too much "sniffing" for me in one evening.
1) What, where, when do you wear each of these (above) scents? Day, night, date, sports, Fall, Spring, in/outdoors, restaurant, etc.
2) How do you rotate your scents? Or do you choose one for a period of time, then switch?
3)I've determined I can apply 4/5 sprays of GIT without offending, but only 1/2 of Terre de Hermes (and it's still there 24+ hours later!) Any advice on the rest of my initial collection?
Many thanks to basenotes and it's members for giving such good, thorough advice on what has always been a difficult decision for me.
Those are some good ones!
I'd wear Egoiste in the evening and a light application for the office. VI is a good evening wear, I think. Again, perhaps for the office as well with a light application. I believe Terre d'Hermes is good anytime.
I hate Guerlain Vetiver so I can't recommend when to wear it, if at all.
I rotate my scents based on how I'm feeling that day, no aforethought .
