    I love oud, vanilla, and natural green notes, even green florals. I love rose. I like animalic notes.

    I hate chocolate, anise, and artificial-smelling notes such as rubber.

    Favourite(s)? Now hard to say without drawing up a list.

    Fig and ginger do not do it for me at all. I have tried to tolerate them, but life is too short.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Don't want to come across as a wiseass, but it's usually various 'accords' that make up a fragrance. I mean linalool or lavender is in most fragrances, but I don't hate them all - it depends how it's used. It's the same with civet - when used judiciously you could hardly distinguish it. I don'y know of any fragrance that just smells of civet. Just an observation.

    There's a big difference between eating chocolate or vanilla and smelling like it. I never understood wanting to go around smelling like a batch of mom's cookies. But to each his own.
