I wore Mitsouko today for Chypre day. It was my second time to give it a try, my first wearing being less than successful. And today was about the same ... Mitsouko does not love my skin.
I saw so many of you wearing Bandit today, and I wish I would have worn it also. Bandit is 100 times better on my skin than Mitsouko. I guess I don't think of Bandit right away when thinking of Chypres. I admit to being more than a little confused by this Chypre classification. I mean, it's easy when oakmoss is listed in the notes, but it gets a bit vague when oakmoss is not listed.
That is one of the reasons I enjoy the Sniff n Speak days so much. It allows me to stretch a little and wear something I normally wouldn't wear. It allows me to learn a little more about the different classifications. It allows me to read other's views and thoughts about some fragrances I'm not familar with.
Back to Mitsouko. I admire and respect Mitsouko, even if I don't like it much.
