    Default Seasons and Weather: Your Top Choices

    I have found more and more that my fragrance choices are highly correlated to the weather, and accordingly, the season. Occasionally I will wear a Virgin Island Water in the middle of a dreary winter, but for the most part, picking a fragrance for the day is just like picking clothes for the day as far as what "fits."

    Obviously people won't wear the same fragrance every day for the entire season, but I would be curious to see how people fill out the following... obviously very situation dependent (date vs night by the fire with a book), but just curious to see where this goes. Figure just copy paste below would be the easiest.


    Fall
    Day:
    Evening/Night:

    Winter

    Kind of difficult for me as I have always seen myself wearing any scent in my collection that's at my disposal regardless of the time of day or season in any of the four locales where I reside throughout the year.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
