Easily Turns?
Of all the perfumes I own, Rose Muskissme is the only one that has turned, despite keeping all my scents in dark, cool places. It now smells foul.

Too Masculine, With Sweet Dry Down
I adore the unisex HERMES UN JARDIN DE MEDITERRANNE, especially the notes of red cedar (that don't stay on the skin as long as I'd like), so I was really looking forward to this scent, as a hopeful alternative with better longevity. To my nose, ANNICK GOUTAL'S NINFEO MIO is far too masculine, and yet, the dry down is far sweeter, not nearly as green as Hermes Un Jardin. My husband was not a fan. This isn't a sexy female nor pretty girly scent, nor clean... too sweet for a male, too much fig for a woman.

Mind you I love unisex scents for women, in particular, I'm enjoying Creed's Virgin Island Water (coconut, tropical) and Atelier Vanille Insensee (very different from one another).

Aftershave
It has such a strong note of vetiver, to the point where it almost smells like mint, a cooling note that smells like menthol, not lemon or green but sinus passage opener, in a medicinal or male aftershave way. Shame because I enjoy all the other unusual perfume notes.

Little Girl, Lily-of-the-Valley
So innocent and ladylike. Nothing heavy. It reminds me of a woman who's always nice. She writes thank you notes on engraved personalized stationery. She's always carrying an umbrella, in case. She's prepared, never careless, always on time, always forgiven. But she chews her fingernails, and despite what's in fashion, she always prefers things simple. Her fish is grilled, and her favorite flower is the Daisy. This smells like sunshine, like a little girl delighting in matured weeds.

Tuberose Trouble
I wanted to like this, but the tuberose kills me. It just smells like an Aunt. In some creations the tuberose works and isn't as dominant. It's trouble in Chinatown.
