Question of the Day: What is your favorite fragrance note (notes)?

I have never been that much into fragrances as I am now. My devotion to makeup and my curiosity made me take a closer look at the scents I’m wearing and I realized how interesting fragrances can actually be. They differ in everything from notes and pyramids to build and sillage. I never knew what kind of scents I do prefer and I did usually stick to a couple of fragrances considering them my signature scents. It turned out that I was somewhat wrong – I definitely look for very specific notes in my fragrances but I can appreciate something new as well.

I prefer to have at least 5 fragrances in rotation during the season as I cannot imagine having only one scent to choose from. Although I tend to get somewhat similar perfumes I still try to include different fragrances into a current rotation to create a variety of notes and pyramids for a season. Moreover, I really enjoy finding new fragrances and I purchase one or two new scents each season (I do usually get 30 ml or 1 oz in order not to get tired of a specific fragrance).

I am currently obsessed with sweet, spicy and gourmand scents. Notes I really enjoy are Vanilla, Caramel, Powder, Benzoin, Incense, Coffee, Patchouli, Oud. At the same time, RoseIris, Lilac, Lavender and Violet are the flower scents I can tolerate in a fragrance although I do not love completely flowery scents. Red Pepper, Amber, Bergamot, Blackberries and Musk work wonderfully as a background scents for me.

I am currently staying away from citrus scents as I got complete tired of them in my late teens and I do try to avoid very fruity scents as well as these seem to be all I was wearing in my early twenties. I think that the scent preferences do change with age and knowledge. The more fragrances you try, the more information you acquire – the wider your preferences and interests become fragrance-wise. I am way more open to new scents and combinations as I’ve ever been before.

Fragrances in my spring rotation are Prada Candy (my all-time favorite), Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay, Tom Ford Cafe Rose, Chloe Love, Chloe, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, Yves Rocher Rose Oud and Bath & Body Works Dark Kisses. All these scents are absolutely gorgeous and I believe that they suite the late winter – early spring time really well.

What are your favorite fragrance notes? What type of fragrances you reach for the most? Tell me everything in the comments – I would really love to know!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea

  1. We have some overlapping tastes – I like vanilla, rose, jasmine, violet, blackberries, coconut. I don’t like sandalwood. I can take musk and amber in limited doses. I currently rotate between BBW Waikiki, Chloe, Prada Candy, Stella and Nest Dahlia & Vines.

    1. We certainly do! 🙂 Sandalwood can sometimes be a bit overwhelming – although I do not totally dislike it 😀 Prada Candy is gorgeous, isn’t it? ❤ Ocean/Tropical fragrances like BBW Waikiki is something new to me – it seems like I might like it but there is always something that prevents me from purchasing them – probably, it's some sea notes… At the same time, I absolutely adore coconut! ❤ might check it it! Thank you for sharing 🙂
