...PaulKiler:I'm so amazed by some of your thoughts...it clearly shows what skin types do, or don't do, and what people come expecting when they read certain notes... It's *really* interesting to read your notes...I've read notes for years, and when I get a scent in the mail, many times it's not at all what I expected it to be like... I am so amazed that someone got "Bitter Coffee" from Cafe Diem..., especially when others get hardly any coffee, and they get more sweet rolls to it. hmmm...But I must confess that I don't hardly use any vanilla in my scents, *THE* most popular fragrance element used in the World...I feel like this Cadillac Commercial, (Which the clip cuts off the opening question:) "You know what's the world's favorite Ice Cream Flavor?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GTlPQyQ-gY"But if you're in the mood for something tasty, test drive one of these..."I find a sympathetic partner for eschewing filling our lives with Vanilla, in Cadillac, or at least for this one commercial... :-)Hope you all keep smellin' good! PKI don't mean offense for what I said. I wear saccharine sweet scents, so you can imagine my collection is full of fake vanilla sugary sweetness. :P It's a different kind of gourmand than what I am used to in the commercial world.
...Silverfire:For us, it's about a 60/40 split, or maybe a touch higher. I'm the one more into fragrances. However, she's more into food. So we've ended up expanding each other's sensory worlds and it's awesome. We do go to Sephora and Ulta together and there's no problem about buying fragrances and such. There's no opposition. If anything, there's some mutual enabling going on. LOL!Correct me if I'm wrong. Sometimes I feel like Ulta has a better selection of men's colognes than women's perfume.
