Jill is getting married in October, and she'd like to find the perfect perfume for her wedding. It must be something she has never worn before. Her wedding will be in Portmeirion village in Wales, and will have a 1920s/30s theme. She'll be wearing a 1930s gold column dress, and her husband will be wearing either Ormonde Man or Knize Ten. Jill has great access to perfume stores, and is willing to spend up to $250.
Here is what we know about Jill:
She's in her 30s and lives in London.
She says she appears mainstream but is actually pretty quirky, and she has a sick sense of humor. She is also self-confident and can be loud and/or less than tactful.
Jill loves the sea, silent films and the clothes, music and films of the 1910s, 20s and 30s. She also loves sleep, soft fabric, reading.
She likes to wear vintage, and she loves shoes.
Smell is very important to Jill — smells that others dislike, she finds intriguing rather than repulsive.
Jill likes green tea fragrances, things that are dusty, tart or multi-layered, and the oriental, chypre and green fragrance families. She likes notes of pepper, oakmoss and roses. She doesn't like sparkly fruit notes, light sparkly perfumes, too many white flowers (tuberose excepted), heavy vanilla or celebrity fragrances. Jill's favorite perfumes at the moment include Molinard Habanita, Ormonde Jayne Tolu & Ormonde Woman (and yes, she's tried the rest of the Ormonde Jayne line), Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Therese, Etat Libre d'Orange Rossy de Palma and Piguet Fracas. She also likes Frederic Malle L'Eau d'Hiver, Serge Lutens 5 o'clock au Gingembre & Serge Noire, Carven Ma Griffe, Chanel Sycomore, Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette.
Jill recently tried Parfums DelRae Bois de Paradis (too fruity), Piguet Visa (overpowering & scary) and LesNez Unicorn Spell (liked the violets but not the base).
