    Um, I hate to throw gravel in this slightly bizarre psych major-turned-self-professed fragrance oracle machinery, but wouldn't it be a lot easier just to look at people's wardrobes and see what they like? I'm sure that says more about their taste in perfumes than who their favorite band is or if they like to feel depressed?
    Or why not do the opposite? - you look at their wardrobes and tell them who their favorite artist might be, where they should go on vacation and - why not? - assess their general emotional stability?

    Well, considering I've only started just recently in the world of fragrances and currently own only 3 colognes, it'd be kind of tough to assess what type of cologne I should get.

    It's just a silly idea, and I'm hoping people give me feedback as to how accurate my recommendations are. It could end up being hit or miss (or, a complete disaster), but it's fun for me, and hopefully for the people participating too. If I just based it on wardrobes or what people already know they like, there wouldn't be any "discovery", or fun for that matter.

    Also, it actually takes me a while to come up with the recommendations! I put a lot of thought into it based on people's answers and what I think "fits."

    What a phenomenal thread this is turning into. Neat! I think it's fun to get a feel for the personalities of those here on the forum, and I'm looking forward to seeing what your recommendations are - especially those for me.

    I'd actually prefer you NOT look at my wardrobe here. I'd rather get your input without knowing what I already wear even if some turn out to be the same.

    Well i'll be the first to give you feedback on your recommendations : How the heck did you know that i am such a huge fan of Patchouli and Amber ?

    What i also like is that i have never tried any of your recommendations , so that leaves something to look forward to in the list you gave me for sure . For example, Narcisco Rodriguez for Him could very well be a match made in heaven, based on my personality, and based on the reviews i'm reading about it .

    Thank you for taking the time to do this and i hope you're having fun , just like we are having fun finding out the results

    this is going to be fun!
    Part 1:

    1. How old are you? 18
    2. Male or female? Male
    3. Are you an introvert (enjoy time alone) or an extrovert (outgoing and social)? I need a good mix of both, but mostly introvert
    4. Do you like to be unique, or do you like to fit in? I like to be unique, but not so unique as to be garish.
    5. Are you more "organized, careful and disciplined," or more "disorganized, careless and impulsive"? Depends, I'm disorganized, but I'm not impulsive, and I usually do research before buying things.
    6. Do you sometimes enjoy being depressed or melancholic? Absolutely not.

    Part 2:

    1. In terms of your favorite smells in life, do you prefer clean (eg. soap), fresh and natural (eg. rain, wood or the ocean), human (eg. musk, skin), sweet (eg. fruit, ice cream) or chemical (eg. nail polish, leather, gasoline)? Sweet smells mostly, I'm open to pretty much everything except overly clean, safe, generic scents. Ex:I hated TdH and GIT. I love the smell of gasoline, but I don't like Fahrenheit(I only tried the new reformulated one)
    2. Do you prefer to wear old-world smells, like your father's cologne, or something new and modern? Sort of a vague question, I don't really know how to answer this one. Here are some of my favourite scents though, Tobacco Vanille, A*Men, Tribute Attar, Ambre Narguile
    3. In general, do you prefer art to be simple, or complex? Simple I suppose, I don't care for abstract art. Although I do like Dali's clock drawings
    4. What kind of music do you like? Rap, lots of rap, a bit of metal
    5. Who's your favorite band/artist? The Roots, or Young Jeezy
    6. What's your favorite movie? Don't have one, but some of my favourites are The Goodfellas, Casino, Scarface, LA Confidential, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises
    7. If you could go to any city in the world on vacation, where would you go? Venice

    Well, you certainly got most pretty accurately, kudos to you! Maybe not my favourites, but certainly most of them are ones that I enjoy a lot (well, APOM is one of my favourites indeed)? The only one I really don't like there is Egoiste, and Silver Factory didn't do much for me either. I don't rate Ambre Précieux anong my favourite ambers, but I do like amber a buckload.
    But the rest of them, you really got them right. Only Eau Noire is missing, that was an easy one for you
    Thanks for taking the time and effort, this really is a fun idea!

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I have been meaning to try Oud Wood for some time now, while I absolutely love Narciso Rodriguez for him, and like Terre d'Hermes (the edt). I am going to try and sample most, if not all of these on your list once I get the chance. I'm a bit concerned about the batches of Patchouli 24 being different and reformulated now, but it wont hurt to give it a try. Lumiere Noire sounds amazing from the description and note breakdown. I would have never even thought of trying it otherwise...

    Thanks again!
