    Default Name a fragrance and a place...

    Close your eyes while you sample all (or some if you got too many) of your fragrances. Then pick one out which gives you the most vivid inner vision of a natural place/location that resembles the scent. Try to be objective, I'm only after the scent, not the memories associated with it, and a place (could be a meadow, a mountain, by the ocean, at the beach, in the forest etc). Scents from Demeter and CB I hate perfumes are banned from this thread, since they are too obvious .

    To me it is Burberry London, which places me in a pine forest in the middle of the winter with lots of snow in the trees. And it doesn't even have pine listed in its "fragrance pyramid".

    For me it's Garrigue - and the place is Crete on a rather hot August afternoon a few years back.

    d'Orsay Etiquette Bleue - the néroli reminds me of the nocturnal streets of old Cadiz, Andalucia, when the orange trees bloom. One of my favorite places in the world.

    Mont Blanc Presence, hot August evenings in Carvoeiro in the Algarve.

    Guerlain Vetiver, fresh crisp mornings in London. A fresh, crisp scent in those conditions really sharpens the brain.
