    Quite frequently posters ignore what the OP is asking for and just post what they feel like posting. I don't think that's helpful. It doesn't mean I'm depressed about it.

    I find it amusing that people lack such basic reading comprehension skills. Oh, and the OP emphasized to list just one note for each.

    Of course they can do what they want, but I think it's a common courtesy to respect the intent of what the original poster had for the thread they made.

    Since smelling Wall Street, I've been put off all Marine notes for the time being, that dry down is not nice at all.

    I've also just noticed that each fragrance I've worn over the past 4 days has coriander notes.

    Love - Coriander
    Hate - Marine notes.

    Default Re: Your most loved and hated note in perfumery currently.

    Tbh I'm having a difficult time choosing either way. There's no one note that sticks out as my most, or least favorite. I don't like the civet in the current Kouros, but love it in Dior's Leather Oud. I thought I didn't like tuberose after smelling Carnal Flower, but then fell in love with Tubereuse Criminelle. Thought I didn't like cumin because of Puredistance M/Opus IV, but then realized that Rose 31 is loaded with it. I feel like any note can smell good when used correctly.

    I specifically asked for your most favorite and least favorite. If that's an hard question to answer, then don't answer it! I don't have an issue with people writing down more than one note that they love, but I'm not interested to know all of the notes you love, I just wanted people to write down the note they loved the most, and they're least favorite. It's as simple as that. But you do what ever you want to do. I'm thankful anyway for all of you that answered to this thread, it's great so see what notes y'all like!

    I see that a lot of you hate Civet. I really need to sample something that has a prominent civet note so that I can see what the fuss is all about!

    Default Re: Your most loved and hated note in perfumery currently.

    My most hated (i hate very rarely anything) is that note, a spice that is present in top and maybe middle notes of

    • Santos Cartier Concentree (not in the original but in concentree)
    • Caron Yatagan

    I'm not sure but it can be basil. I just can't stand it at all!

    I like especially many citrus notes like bergamot,lemon verbena, lime. Carnation, peppers, artemisia, various woody notes.

    Well since we're going 'currently', I'll confess I'm on a bit of a hay binge at the moment.
    Full bottles of Chergui and Sova are on their way, and I really get some hay-like notes from Sana, too.

    Most hated stays fairly constant - sour yuzu.
