    In my mind the more official sounding "families," "categories," "varieties," or "types" of fragrances don't make much difference, and in fact I really can't mentally hold onto "oriental," "fougere," "woody," too well. So my categories are quite informal.

    My favorites are vetivers and florals. My least favorite is gourmand and other sweet types.

    Love them all but lately I noticed I am not craving for citrus and aquatic scents.

    Default Re: your favorite and least favorite fragrance catagory

    My least favorite: florals. To be specific TUBEROSE MONSTERS! I like some florals a good deal, actually.

    I like most categories, actually.

    It isn't the category that matters as much as the construction.

    Gourmands! I usually can't take the teasing though, I spray them directly into my mouth.

    Highly favored: Woody orientals.

    The only thing I truly cannot stand, even when well-done, is aquatics. Gourmand can be nice, if executed with subtlety, but I rarely like them as I find them. Beyond that, anything can be paradise. Notes I do not like are immortelle, "ozone", "white musk," vanillin, overdosed ionones, dihydromyrcenol, muguet, and iso-e-super, but it is indeed always a matter of dosage.

    Probably think gourmands are my least favorite, even though my exposure has been rather limited in that I haven't even found them to be interesting sounding enough to even seek to sniff out.
