    Default Fragrance Questionnaire

    I have appended (read: flogged) this wee questionnaire from makeupalley.com and decided to post it here.
    Of course tastes on BN are often fickle or fleeting, so copy/paste the questions and add your own answers that you feel best suit you based on "what you're about" in this time and space. Ill begin...

    1) Favorite floral frag.... Ladies: Flowerbomb V&R and Versace Blonde (I dont have a men's fave).

    2) Favorite citrus frag.... Eau d'Oranges Verte - Hermés

    3) Favorite spicy frag.... LPNo.9 for Him - Penhaligon's (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, black pepper)

    4) Favorite green frag.... Narciso Rodriguez for Him, for its lush green fougere qualities.

    5) Favorite musk frag.... Again NR for Him and for Her, for their amazing egyptian musks (albeit synthetic ones).

    6) Favorite leather frag... Minotaure - Paloma Picasso

    7) Favorite amber frag... Gaultier2

    8) Favorite patchouli frag.... I don't love patchouli. I prefer it in tiny doses where it embellishes a scent (Colonia Intensa - Acqua di Parma), not when it takes center stage.

    9) Favorite fruity frag... Bazaar for men - Christian Lacroix

    10) Favorite clean frag... Cologne - Thierry Mugler

    11) Favorite ozonic frag... I'll pass.

    12) Favorite gourmand frag... Rochas Man (but I also love the 'gourmand-like' tonalities in Prada Amber PH).

    13) Favorite woody frag.... Tam Dao - Diptyque

    14) Favorite avant garde frag.... Scent Intense - Costume National

    15) Favorite frag name... I don't think I have one, though I like the quaintness and frankness of "Eau d'Orange Verte".

    16) Favorite frag packaging or bottle.... Packaging: Hermés use exceptional colours, design and paper stocks. Hand wrapping flacons in tissue (á la Hiris) is remarkable too. Also love "Angel Schlesser PH" packaging... an assortment of textures and layers. Bottle: Penhaligon's apothecary-inspired bottles, and the infinitely elegant ST Dupont "Noir".

    17) Favorite frag advertising.... Parfums Thierry Mugler

    18) Favorite frag house.... Too hard! Old school: Hermés. New school: Narciso Rodriguez (2 out of 2 means theyre off to a good start).

    19) Favorite perfumer... Yikes! Possibly Francis Kurkdjian. I have many!

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
