L'Eau Jolie by Lolita Lempicka
„Not Lolita, for better or for worse”
While I admire the older design bottles of this brand, I must admit that none of the originals really appealed to me scent-wise. Be that as it may, I had some expectations for L'Eau Jolie because many reviewers seemed to embrace this flanker as finally...

Secrets d'Essences - Neroli by Yves Rocher
Secrets d'Essences Neroli is not only about the namesake note but also the various parts of the sweet and bitter orange tree. I am wondering if the latter fact could also be partly responsible for the distinct shifts in my perception of this perfume over a couple of years.
Intense spiciness contrary to the lucid bottle, nothing lovely. Would personally prefer this as a potpourri or soap scent, not as a perfume.+4
Almost same notes like Gucci Bloom except for the missing iris. Anyone already tested?
Lemony jasmine tea soap on my hot skin vs. jasmine-lemon candy w/almost melon-like green sweetness on the colder part. Where's the gardenia?+3
Resembles the current 1881, more floral. Long-lasting w/ a prominent dry herbal note for an almost unisex, strong character. Will polarise.
After the breakfast, you can wash the croissant flakes off your fingers with the floral liquid soap making your hands smell cool and clean.+1
We meet again, "L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme"--a bit more floral&feminine in a different bottle. Great projection. Creamy herbaceous aquatic.+1
Despite my fears of honey, no Scandal. Golden&warm, 'terra ambrata'. Could be unisex. Personally, couldn't smell any similarities to Mon G.+3
Ylang contained, as on bottle label+to my nose, clearly present at the lovely sweet yet brief opening. Faint jasmine dominates the rest.+2
One of the line that could actually be worn. Non-sirupy raspberry candy similar to Flowerparty w/o the rose, a zestier red fruit cocktail.+2
Good example why TBS puts this primarily under Room Spray: Detergent-like citrus notes make it unwearable for me.+3

I often see people judging a fragrance solely on the criterion whether it possesses "a certain wow-factor" or not. While the definition of such is still somewhat elusive to me, I had accepted it without much thought when I began on my review-reading journey.Some will nonetheless grant a neutral rating...

And when I say 'thorough' music, this does not necessarily amount to being stuck up. Learning to enjoy Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, etc, has actually resulted in my enjoying ~Obsession~ by Animoto or ~Funky Town~ by Lips Inc all the more also; & likewise, learning to actually enjoy ~Diagilev~ by Roja Dove has actually helped me to enjoy ~Dot~ by Marc Jacobs, etc.

Glad you took it with goodwill, my implying that you might have a mental block. Thought as I wrote "this might be a tad bold"! But what you said about attributing personalities to perfumes is fascinating. I think I attribute personalities to them also, but probably not in so intense or concrete a way, I suspect. I think my best analogy is music, actually, and certainly, at least with °thorough° music - really seriously carefully constructed stuff, particularly classical, but not necessarily that only - ones perception is usually in the direction of increasing appreciation: learning to °get° the more technical & deeper pieces, and then that feeding back into perceiving anew some piece one already knows but has overlooked somewhat, etc. So ones °compass° of music is usually expanding - a contraction is a rare thing, I should think.

There's something so whimsical about the combination of signs and elements in Eastern astrology: metal monkey, fire horse, water pig... :)
