Hannah, who comments on Now Smell This as krokodilgena, wants to find a new "very strange and very dark" perfume. She has excellent access to perfume stores, and is willing to spend up to $150 for 50 ml. Here is what we know about Hannah:
She's in her late teens, and she lives in the mid-Atlantic region of the US.
She's planning to be a German major, but her dream was to be a lingerie designer.
Her favorite designers are Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, Gareth Pugh, John Galliano, and Hedi Slimane.
She loves Indian and Thai food, and also loves art (favorite artists: Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt).
She does not usually like "classic or retro".
Hannah wants her new scent to be dark and weird, but not goth: "the equivalent of some crazy Balenciaga ankleboots". She likes notes of leather, rubber, black pepper, cumin, black tea, spearmint, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, anise, birch, juniper, pine, sandalwood and opoponax. She likes citrus, but not usually other fruits, and she likes "gingerbread-y gourmands". Her current rotation includes Bvlgari Black (her everyday scent), Alexander McQueen Kingdom, Donna Karan Black Cashmere, and Yves Saint Laurent Opium (was her everyday scent in the past, but smells different on her now). Other perfumes that she considers favorites include Comme des Garçons Ouarzazate, Zagorsk & Comme des Garçons Eau de Parfum, Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe & Cuir Ottoman, and Lubin Idole.
Perfumes that were "almost but not quite" for Hannah include Diptyque Philosykos, Eau Lente & L'Eau. In the "just ok" category, she'd include Ava Luxe Film Noir, Comme des Garçons Jaisalmer & Tar, Etro Gomma, Santa Maria Novella Patchouly and Mona di Orio Amyitis.
Hannah does not like church incense, white flowers or fruits. Perfumes she does not like include Parfumerie Generale Psychotrope, Tann Rokka, The People of the Labyrinths A.Maze, Comme des Garçons Kyoto & Avignon, L'Artisan Aedes de Venustas, Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose, Serge Lutens A La Nuit and Robert Piguet Fracas.
