I blindly bought a vintage bottle of Narcisse Eau de Toilette years ago. I tried it and found it cloying. Oh, and I hated the drydown so much! I gave it to my mom, who tucked it away, never to be seen again. After she passed away the bottle came back to me. I remembered hating it so I tried to get rid of it but no one would have it. I tried it again and FELL IN LOVE. Shout-it-from-the-rooftops kind of love. I don't know what happened but I'm so smitten with it. It reminds me of one of my biggest loves, Organza Eau de Parfum, though I can't put my finger on why this is so. I'm grateful no one would take it.
I know I can't be the only one who's had this type of delayed experience. Has this happened to you? What scent was once a scrubber but is now a favorite? I'd love to know! Maybe I need to go back and try some other scents I once dismissed.
