    Tuberose, cumin, curry spices, barnyard Agollacha and fermented sinensis. Basically I love the scent of Indian and Asian spices. Tulsi is another note I’m obsessed with that I see others find challenging.

    I like immortelle also.
    There's a very special Immortelle 43/17 from Carta worth investigating.
    I like it very much.

    I like Immortelle, but that a tough note to "integrate" into a composition without it overtaking it. It may just be I'm sensitive to it.

    I remember Annick Goutal's first release of Sables. That was a love it or leave it type deal.

    Yea, it was a bit much in the first release. I'm not sure how toned down it was in the reformulation.

    I've always wanted to smell Eau Noire. I like the immortelle in Luten's L'innommable, but in Marlou's 50ml it's not too good.

    I don't know the likes and dislikes of others, I'll say something animalic which doesn't bother me in the slightest but might bother others.

    Certain floral, fruit and/or incense notes that are considered largely acquired tastes but also love/hate matters, also certain aspects of leather and of not burnt/unsmoked raw green or barely dried tobacco varietals and types

    I have some never ending love-hate affairs with immortelle, civet and tuberose.

    I enjoy vanilla scents, something that falls in the love or hate category for many.

    Not sure if many others hate it but I like (synthetic) musks.

    Default Re: Note you love that many others hate

    I love a lot of notes that are hated by the general community: galbanum, bitter herbaceous notes, carroty iris, cumin, civet, other animalics, leather notes like isobutyl quinoline, indoles etc etc.

    There are also some notes that seem to be disliked here that I love: white musk, for example (but not laundry musk). And I'm probably one of the few here who likes 90s watery aquatics (the more floral ones, at least).
