On Friday, Bois de Jasmin asked us, “What lies outside of your perfume comfort zone? Which fragrances are still challenging for you?” I loved the question and wanted to take it one step further: what are your favorite perfumes from your least favorite perfume category?
Me, I loooooathe fruity perfumes. They never smell enough like real fruits for me. (Remember that while oranges, lemons, and limes are all technically fruits, they get classified as “citrus” for the purpose of perfumery.) The only fruity perfumes I really enjoy are Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay and the peachy Yves Saint Laurent Yvresse. I also liked the candied strawberry note in pre-reformulation Miss Dior Cherie.
