Have you undertaken a long and exhaustive search in order to fill a particular gap in your perfume collection?
What kind of fragrance were you hunting for?
What perfumes did you try along the way?
What was the perfume that finally filled the gap perfectly?
Or are you still looking for that perfect incense, green, rose, vanilla (etc.) fragrance?
I was looking for the perfect beach fragrance for a long time. Not something to wear on the beach, but rather a perfume that would recall that feeling of lying on the sand in a tropical locale. A major stumbling block was the fact that I’m not a fan of overly coconutty or salty notes. I tried Perfumista favourites Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder and Eau de Merveilles by Hermes, but neither of these worked for me.
Then Olfactoria told me about her recent love of Prodigieux Le Parfum by Nuxe. I ordered a bottle and it turned out to be the perfect blend of tropical flowers and very subtle, suntan oil style coconut. I had found my Holy Grail beach scent.
