Well, I didn't get any replies.
I'm not sure why, if anyone could tell me, that would be great, I like to learn how boards work but there don't seem to be any "guidance posts" on this one, so I'll just solicit advice for getting people to talk to me.
I don't really need as much advice anymore, since I went to the store, smelled a truckload of different fragrances, and then wound up buying D&G Light Blue. I liked how it smelled on me both times I did a "sample spray," altho I have to wait till Christmas to see how it really works out.
So, basenotes, what was wrong with my first post, and what could I do better?
