    Default Fragrances that emphasize on one note?

    Sometimes when I'm wearing a fragrance.. One note stands out to me. For example Tam Dao.. all I can think of is the sandalwood. All I can really smell is the sandalwood.

    I think some perfumers take that extra effort to make something that emphasizes on one note or accord (even if they use 20 notes to make it)

    I also think this would be a good topic for the noob noses out there, who perhaps want to find something that focuses on the one note to better serve them in the future. I certainly don't mind learning more myself.. so if you know any fragrances that fit this topic, feel free to reply to this post.

    Here's my list
    Sandalwood - Tam Dao
    Lavender - Drakkar Noir
    Rose - Noir de Noir

    Orange Flower - Zohar by Ayala Moriel ( one of the few to capture the "dark side" of orange flower )
    Lily Of The Valley - Diorissimo by Dior ( though I've hear it's been reformulated badly )
    Jasmine - Sarrasins by Serge Lutens ( I find A La Nuit too... exaggerated )
    Rose - Velvet Rose by Sonoma Scent Studio ( like a thousand roses exploded in your nose )
    Tuberose - Carnal Flower by Frederic Malle ( it's just become the classic )
    Narcissus - Champaca by Comme des Garcons ( to be fair, though, I've never smelled a champaca flower )
    Lilac - En Passant by Frederic Malle ( cool, dewy lilac - ethereal if ever a fragrance was )
    Gardenia - Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder ( though Yves Rocher discontinued Pur Desir was on par )
