    -A single dominant note
    -Light chamber music mix
    -Orchestral master mix
    -I don't care, get the ladies.


    To me, they serve different purposes.
    However, the more complex yet well balanced formula may mean more mastery and value to me when I spend.

    In my case: "an even mix of all" and/or a selection diversified enough of all categories mentioned above.

    I look for something I enjoy. Minimal, complex, somewhere in between... all I care about is whether or not I enjoy it.

    Molecule 01 is simple and I enjoy it.
    LDDM is complex and I enjoy it.
    For me, it's really that simple.

    All of them... Unless I could only have one fragrance in my collection. But the point of having a large collection is that I could have some that have a single dominant note, some light blends, and some that have a bit of everything. Like most other things, I like a mix.

    Its not how many notes they use -- I don't give bonus points for level of difficulty -- It's the end result. How nice does it smell to me? That is all I care about, and I enjoy a wide range of fragrance, so I have no overall preference.

    Default Re: What kind of formulations do you look for?

    I like perfumes from all three categories. I like Habit Rouge, which could be considered a Symphony, I like Hammam Bouquet, which could be considered a Concerto, and I like L'Ombre Dans L'Eau, which could be considered a Dueto.

    I even like solos, such as Agua Lavanda.
