Beauty Notes: the ever-elusive signature scent, part 3

Beauty Notes: the ever-elusive signature scent
Beauty Notes: the ever-elusive signature scent, part 2

perfumes


Thanks to the lovely Dain, who gave me a sample of Jean Patou's Sublime (among loads of other samples), I'm pretty well set as far as the perfume wardrobe goes.

When I tried Sublime again, after...ten years? probably more...I immediately reconnected with it. This was the scent I had tried several times at Nordstrom, along with Guerlain's Samsara, Dior's Dune, some others...and had never bought. It is sweeter now to my nose; perfumes in the 1990's were sweeter and more assertive than the popular scents of today. But, so what. It's magnificent.

Yup, I will go through the entire...mass...of samples, and will doubtlessly experience something unexpected. The Lutens loot should be interesting. Still I have several decades of perfume conservatism under my belt; I have never owned many scents. Five will already be more than I've ever owned at a pop.
