    Mumsy, darling, the one which seems to have chosen me, which is me personified, is Santa Maria Novella Pot Pourri. A friend unwittingly captured this sentiment recently. She said "Oh! I know why you like this. It's because this is what your house smells like" . Enough said.......

    And if I catch a trail of Armani, I would be looking for you.

    What's really funny about this question is that out of all the zillions of fragrances we can all wear. This is kind of nosy personal and it gives a real smelly insight into each of us here. Weird and quite wonderful. We can have a scent line up of BNers. Lol.

Very soft and low key (so British!) but it's rendered beautifully. It's one of those impossible-to-get-in-the-US unicorn things, so I'm glad I was able to get this decant and will enjoy it sparingly. ;-) I'll be sure to keep it on my to-buy list when I next visit UK, likely the only way to bring back home a full bottle or two.

    I'm glad you like it remik, it was love at first smell for me. Out of all the fragrances I have this one has a special place in my collection as something that resonates on a emotional level. Like when you are taken with a stunning piece of art.

    I have been judged by people for my whole life. The two i think really represent me are tom ford black orchird and tobacco vanille. both loud and harsh opening says lot of myself : cold face, oh well he looks like hating this world and everybody. but if u can pass that opening dry down will be heaven. i think i am kinda weak and warm hearted. It is just the way i look that made people think i am cold

    Esencia Loewe . It has a wonderful depth and an unflappable, thoughtful calmness about it that resonates with my personality.

    I must be a Dior boy because the ones that come to mind are:

    Dior Fahrenheit. Vintage formulations; I was wearing this around 1993–1997, and ladies swooned, even knowing full well I preferred boys.
    Dior Homme. Possibly my steadiest go-to these days; modern but refined, masculine but no need to over-perform its masculinity, like me.
    Dior Vetiver. I'm a sucker for vetiver. It works on my skin, it suits my penchant for woodsy-natural smells. I have a bunch of 'em, but this one has climbed to the top in a short time.
    Dior Eau Sauvage. The "classic" vibe of this is also timeless and still current. I wear this and feel like I'm never going wrong.

    That's not to say the above are my top favorites (that list would involve Amouage for sure), but these Diors really seem like me.

    Thats an interesting question.

    I guess, for me, its the five below:

    Musc Ravageur-FM
    1697-Frapin
    Chypre Palatin-MDCI
    Idole-Lubin
    Oyedo-Diptyque

    What does that say about me? I am an intensely curious person, with a lot of different interests.

    Redneck Perfumisto, I like your "categories". Long ago a boyfriend and I, we did no.2 when going to France, we ended up in amazing places. One time we had a run-down palace (the Youth Hostel) in the countryside just for ourselves. But that was before I got into perfumes (I only had Chèfreveuille). Now I would wear Paloma Picasso on a motorcycle tour.
