    Default A Scent for All Seasons

    Looking for opinions on a scent for a woman who is cultured and elegant (a bit of a WASP/preppie) that is suitable as a signature scent that can be worn in any season or time of day.
    They say, what they say, let them say.

    Do you have any idea of the types of fragrances she likes...e.g., citrus, fresh/clean, musky, spicy, floral, woodsy. It would be easier to make recommendations. I find that appearances/social personae don't always predict taste in fragrance. Chanel comes to my mind when I hear cultured and elegant. But are you looking for a big "house" fragrance or a niche brand? I like Parfums de Nicolaļ as well, from what I've sampled. Any more specific info you can give would be helpful. What is her lifestyle? Casual? Professional? Social/nightlife? Do you know what other fragrances she has worn? Is she open to new and innovative things, or does she prefer the classic and tried & true? Do you know whether she has any particular scent aversions? Knowing her approximate age might be helpful. Stuff like that.

    I automatically thought of Chanel too, and I think No.19 is an all-purpose, good for anytime, anywhere, beautiful, elegant, chic and sophisticated fragrance. And despite its incredible popularity among basenoters, it's not a fragrance you're going to smell on everyone around you, which is important if it's going to be a signature scent.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
