...When I first began my perfume journey, I tried both L'Heure Bleue and Mitsouko and I thought they smelled very much alike as well. In addition, I felt they had a sour note to them that I couldn't get past and so I left them on the store counter. When pressed, I would have said I preferred LHB. However, neither was tempting me.Then, I purchased a Vintage Lotion Vegetale of LHB and using that from a spray atomizer into which I transferred it, caused me to fall in love. The Lotion Vegetale was considerably lighter so I think it helped introduce me a bit more slowly. Now, LHB is one of my favorites.And, it smells nothing like Mitsy to me at all now. I think my nose just changed over time. My sensitivities have adjusted and what I liked in the beginning I no longer enjoy and what I hated I often find I love.I tried very hard to like Chanel No 5. It took me a long time, but now I love it.I also tried to like Secretions Magnifique, that one, however, didn't fare as well! YUCK!
