Do you like to try a wide range of different perfumes?
Are you drawn to the highly original and unusual in fragrance?
Or are you more conservative in your tastes and tend to stick to trying perfumes you’re pretty sure you’ll like?
Would you like to widen your perfume comfort zone?
In the early days I was up for trying most everything. I would get samples of perfumes from mainstream houses to very obscure ones I haven’t tried since. It didn’t matter what genre it was either (largely because I didn’t know my preferences yet). Even discovering I didn’t like something was a thrill because it added to my knowledge.
These days I’m much narrower in my exploration of the world of fragrance. I know what I like and tend to only try perfumes that I think will appeal to me. I will always try a new release from Chanel’s Les Exclusifs or Dior’s La Collection, but I’m unlikely to seek out the latest perfume by a new niche brand. When it comes to fragrance type, if it’s a chypre I’ll give it a go, but if it’s a skank-fest, forget it. In one way this is a shame because I feel my taste in perfume is pretty safe and not in the least cool or edgy, however that’s me!
How daring is your taste in perfume?
