Is there a brand of perfumes that don’t really “click” with you?
I think many of us have a brand that we’ve tried but never really connected with us. It’s not about the perfumes. It’s us. Something about their style doesn’t work for us for whatever reason.
For me, it’s probably Jo Malone London. This is a brand that many people adore. I haven’t tried everything from the brand but what I have tried never really worked on me. Some of them go sort of “sour” on my skin. It’s hard for me to explain. I tend to like their bath/body products more than their alcohol-based perfumes. Something about the perfumes smell so “off” on my skin. However, I tried Wood Sage & Sea Salt and really loved wearing it. I guess this is why I keep trying things from brands that usually aren’t my style…they may eventually launch something that is!
Some brands have clicked with me over time. I remember I used to not “get” Chanel. And then one day, I couldn’t get enough of perfumes like Coco, Cristalle and Les Exclusifs. I found myself spending a year where I mostly wore Chanel which was soooo out of character for me. I don’t know what happened, but something happened. I’m not complaining. (BTW – I’m still obsessed with Chanel Paris-Venise).
Then there are brands that I used to like but now I don’t. It’s either because I’ve “changed” or they have. Ones that come to mind for me are By Kilian. I loved things like Liaisons Dangereuses but some of their newer launches have really lost my attention (still mad at Asian Tales). But, they do have some older things that I still like so maybe it’s not fair for me to include them here. Anyway…
So fess up in the Non-Judgmental Zone. Is there a brand of perfumes that you have tried over and over and it still doesn’t “click” with you?
