This week's subject is Christie, who says she is a "definite perfume newbie" but also a "budding perfume junkie". Christie is looking for two fragrances: the first should be a "high-pitched, high-energy fragrance", the second should be "something creamy and light" that would work as a comfort scent. She has great access to perfume stores, and while she'd prefer that both scents be reasonably priced, she's willing to entertain any suggestions.
Here is what we know about Christie:
She's in her mid-20s and recently married.
She describes herself as intellectual, creative and sporty.
Christie loves hiking and biking, but also shopping sprees. She also enjoys out of the way places, food cultures and public radio.
Christie loves citrus notes, soft, creamy florals, and green fragrances that aren't too dry or woody. She loves Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Laurier Reglisse, Miller Harris Tangerine Vert, and Parfums 06130 Yuzu Rouge. Other favorites include Dior Addict II, DKNY Be Delicious and Burberry Brit. On the "creamy and soothing" front, she loves Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Figue Iris, Summer by Kenzo and Sage Turquoise.
Christie doesn't like overly powdered vanilla notes, gourmands, "too humid florals" or sticky sweet scents. She also doesn't care for dark wood, heavy musk or dirty leather.
For a her high-pitched energy fragrance, Christie tried LezNEZ Unicorn Spell ("really lovely, but not enough"), Azzaro Orange Tonic ("love it, but at some point too dry"), L'Artisan The Pour un Ete ("pretty, but boring" and Parfums de Nicolaï Eau d'Ete ("did not enjoy the candied sweetness"). For her creamy and light fragrance, Christie tried L'Artisan Chasse Aux Papillons ("pretty, but too sweet and boring") and L'Artisan Mimosa Pour Moi ("too powdery").
