What perfume note or style are you currently tired of?
OK, so this question isn’t asking if there is something within the industry you’re sick of sniffing. I’d like to know if there is a note/genre that you have burnt yourself out on or never really liked in the first place.
My answer: amber. I went through a crazed amber stage; it was all I wore. Then one day, I was so sick of it. I had burnt myself out (like if someone that thought eating cake everyday for a week was a good idea). Like I would wear them and not only be tired of them, but they almost made me feel ill. They just felt really “wrong” and like wearing a fur coat in 90° weather. I’m just now wearing ambers again after YEARS of not.
I also like citrus but after a long summer, I’m soooo ready to put up all my eau de colognes and start wearing heavier stuff…like amber.
What notes are you tired of wearing? Have you ever burnt yourself out on a perfume genre or note?
I have been sick with a cold from hell and it’s finals. Hence, the lack of posting on EauMG. I still can’t smell anything and I’m a snotty mess, so I thought it would be a good time to introduce my “Open Thread”. This is a feature I’ve been wanting to post to facilitate discussion. One of my favorite things about blogging is actually talking to fellow Fumeheads (we’re an odd little niche, aren’t we?). I thought it would be nice to have a thread for perfume-related topics.
