Great question! And one I cannot answer, since in my case the need is emotional and not categorical. I am looking to be transported--the "high"--and I have had just as many downs as I have ups.
Note that the ups are brief, as they are for any addict of any substance, in this case something, let's be honest, huffed:
CARNAL FLOWER: Was there ever a tuberose so frankly oily, dripping, and green, to the point that it resembles a floral gasoline? Felt like living inside someone else's sensual existence, totally transportive in a biospheric sort of way. This met a long-forgotten desire to smell the way Rita Hayworth looked in Blood and Sand.
CRISTALLE: A fragrance that is more efficient than I am. This is a multi-tasker. I am not. It makes me work to live up to it. Or at least want to.
UNE ROSE: Gee, look at me. I am not 20 any longer. I am too old for coy. A fragrance of liberation and acceptance. Brilliant.
This is not to say that I am not still looking for a vanilla that isn't tormented by herbs, spice, or crass celebrity.
I think I am fairly well satisfied in other departments.
