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.

Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
Like: Vanilla, Heliotrope, (Bitter)Almond and Neroli (L'eau d'Hiver comes pretty close for my ideal of tailor-made perfume)
Apricot (a likable scent but for some reasons perfume that contain apricot usually ends up smell like sweat on skin)

Not so love: Marine notes
Smelling good on a budget!
HATE civet. I seem to enjoy fragrances with a prominent cider note.
Love - iris.
Loathe - fecal.
love: thyme, basil, oregano, rosemary, sage, aromatic herbs in general
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.
HATED: Immortelle tied with Tuberose and Oud/Agarwood/Aoud a distant second.
LOVED: Amber, Vetiver, Cardamom
love tonka bean hate civet
Love oud, vetiver, oak moss
Dislike chocolate, vanila
Love: Rose, vanilla, amber
Love; Oud, Vanilla, Iris, Jasmin, musk, amber
HATE; Rose, patchouli, leather, incense
