    Default I hate juniper

    I do.

    It ruins everything it touches. Gin, ruined. Black Gold, ruined. Any fragrance with juniper in it, ruined.

    I just find it repugnant. Who's with me?

    I'm okay with it - although I'd rather have vodka than gin.

    While never strongly hating nor disliking it, considered that in almost any fragrance that contains it, this particular note works nearly always better in a synergy with almost any other note, rather than as a standalone/in a single note scent

    Juniper is one of my favorite notes. Agree to disagree :-)

    I hate it myself actually. It's a note I always detested.

    Juniper is right up there with bergamot and grapefruit when it comes to selling designers. It’s pretty much a no-brainer to have juniper in a composition to make it sell to the public. I’m surprised anyone would dislike it, it’s like disliking puppies.

    Juniper is widely used in aromatherapy because its a therapeutic, cleansing and calming scent as well as aromatic. I agree with NickZee on this.

    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.

    Juniper doesn't bother me. It's not featured too prominently in many of my favorite fragrances, but there's a good bit in Cerruti 1881, which I quite enjoy.

    I like juniper, although my gin drinking has greatly attenuated in recent years.

    I don't mind it personally. The only one I own where it seems prominent is Juniper Sling. It works very well in the summer and is quite inoffensive.

    Exactly. Perfectly good alcohol ruined by juniper. (With the disclaimer that Texas and Virginia cedars are, botanically, junipers. Still, they don't smell like juniper junipers.)

    I like juniper, as a note in fragrance, in gin, and in food.

    I like juniper, as a note in fragrance, in gin, and in food. I find it uplifting and refreshing.

    Blasphemy!!!

    now excuse me my while me and my two bottles of gin in the cupboard comfort one another as we try to get over your traumatizing insult.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Gin is made from juniper berries though. I have a few fragrances that Juniper smells great in. Creed Royal Water and Acqua di Parma Ginepro di Sardenia.

    Prefer to drink it than wear it. Often when I drink too much of it, I end up wearing it anyway.

    As long as it isn't an overdosed note in a fragrance.

    The berries, the tree, don't care. Hate it.

    I don't drink Gin, have never tasted the berries, nor seen/smelt the tree .... I have never smelt the note in isolation ... all I can say is I like all the frags I've tried with juniper as a note

    All my drunken escapades of the last few years have been gin inspired.

    Fairly fleeting note. Berries are different from the evergreen leaves.
    Berries: Cool, sweet freshness. Green leaves: Sprightly and piney.
