Mandy is a "huge perfume junkie" from Canada. She already owns a number of perfumes she likes, but she feels like she gravitates towards the same sort of perfumes over and over, and she'd love to find something different. She wants her new perfume to make her feel "pretty and special", and to "fit like a comfortable pair of shoes". She can pay up to $200. Here is what we know about Mandy:
Mandy is in her mid-30s but looks younger, and she works in a corporate environment.
She describes herself as "silly and sometimes immature" but also responsible.
She's nostalgic about her childhood, and a "fan of anything from the 1980s".
She loves pink and purple.
Mandy's favorite flower is lilac, but she can't get past the idea that lilac perfumes are too mature, and many that she has tried smell like "bathroom spray". She tends more towards fruity florals. She likes most floral notes, and most fruits except too much lemon, lime, or berry. She loves the smell of almonds, coconut, fresh rain, light vanilla. She doesn't like heavy spices, orientals, ginger, lavender, incense, powder, heavy musk, or anything that smells like lemon cleaner.
Her favorite perfumes are Christian Dior J'adore ("so pretty, the plum and floral notes are just so nice on me"), Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey ("so fresh and yummy", and she also likes Jo Malone Lime Blossom and Orange Blossom), Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll ("love the mix of grapefruit and roses, it seems to fit me, and I adore the bottle"). She recently purchased a bottle of Vera Wang Look.
Perfumes that didn't work for Mandy: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir ("too spicy"), Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia (too floral), J Lo Miami Glow (she tired of it quickly), the Escada summer limited editions ("they all just smell the same after a while"), Stella McCartney Stella ("the amber just didn't work on me"), Bvlgari Jasmin Noir ("not me"), Versace Bright Crystal ("too sharp"), DKNY Delicious and Be Delicious ("boring too quickly"), Thierry Mugler Angel ("too much chocolate and just too heavy"), Hanae Mori Butterfly ("nice but a bit too sweet and not special enough"), Fresh Sugar Blossom ("a bit too young"), Creed line (her favorite was Spring Flower, but she found that they don't last long enough), Creed Virgin Island Water ("nice but I do not want to smell like a pina colada all year"), Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee, ("so strong I couldn't wear it"), Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose ("did not suit me at all"), Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue ("somewhat sour on me"), Marc Jacobs Daisy (too young, too short-lived"), Christian Dior Diorissimo (too mature).
