...For me it is not necessarily an urge to blind buy but a "necessity" when one can not test the perfumes. Many perfumes I am interested in are not in perfume shops, yes I could order samples, but when in the EU it is annoying with all the regulations and extra taxes and not all online sellers ship to here... So, I actually bought many bottles blind.
...Memoria by Tony Moly (South Korean cosmetic company),seems to be a dupe of J'adore by Dior.I definitely get bergamot, pear and a bit of melon at the start.I can not post a pic, but here is the Vietnamese website, where it is still available. It is discontinued in South Korea.http://tonymolyvn.com.vn/chi-tietsp/c34p139/memoria-eaude-toilet.html
...I also like "Guipure & Silk". "Patchouli Sumatra" is good too, as is "Love Generation Rock" which smells like Givenchy's Ange ou Demon.I don't care for "Love Generation Arts", it is like Lady Million.
...As a European I was/am not that acquainted with (all) US (teenage) fragrances, but I definitely remember Opium. I bought a bottle of Poison at a big department store off the Champs Elysées in Paris when it came out. I did not know Giorgio, Baby Soft or any of the imposters then. I would like to add Loulou by Cacharel, another big white floral - it just seemed to fit our lifestyle then (still love it now). At that time I went through several bottles of Woman III by Jil Sander, another love. This has been taken from the market to be re-released (50ml bottle for the price of the former 100ml...the original goes for ridiculous prices on ebay). Otherwise I remember Ferré (original) and Byblos, both much more sweeter.
...Today I was wearing Basile uomo by Basile and I liked it very much. I think women can wear men's colognes very well in most cases. I like them for business and outdoors or for when things have to get done. So, in a certain sense they seem to underline masculine qualities, but you can also say that about certain feminine chypres; and I don't think it's running away from the own gender identity, it might just enforce an aspect of our own personality.I also have Aramis and the last time I noticed a bit of sweet in the heart notes, it seemed to be nearly better wearable than Cabochard. However there are some I don't like on myself, the fougère type maybe?
