    Default Why fragrances turn bad on the skin ?

    I am new to the niche perfume and I have been sampling a lot recently. Some fragrance I like, some not so much, but what surprises me is how many fragrances fall apart on my skin into some sort of unbearable soap. I am sure they were not intended to be like that. I had to wash them off. These fragrances include Serge Lutens Daim Blond, Amouage Gold and many L'Artisans. I wonder why it happens.

    I think that one reason is the food you eat. If you eat a lot of greasy junk food, that's what you will smell like, and the frag will mix with that (in your sweat) and smell bad. Just something I've noticed.

    It may simply be the progression from top to heart to base that you do not like. You may not like the base notes.
