This week, we're helping Ammy. Ammy is in her late teens, and she lives in Asia. She wants to find...
...a daily wear perfume that's also an extension of my personality (or rather an extension of who I think I am). Something that's fun and flirty with a wild side that's slightly sultry.
She'd also like something long-lasting but not overbearing, and "sweet without smelling like I was doused in cotton candy". Ammy says she's fussy and rebellious, and she likes to party but still prefers a good book at the end of the day. She wants to be mysterious, but she's very predictable. She likes to dress up, and she wants a perfume "that stands out".
Ammy loves honey, vanilla and cherry blossom notes, but she hates green tea and musk, perfumes that are oceanic, breezy, chocolate-y, overly tropical or feminine or fresh, and any perfume with an alcoholic smell. She also doesn't like perfumes that end up smelling like a garden or food.
Here are some of the perfumes Ammy has tried:
Yves Saint Laurent Elle — too heavy for day wear, but love how long it lasts and how sexy it is without being too girly,
M by Mariah Carey — smelled good, but not very me.
Dior's Miss Dior Cherie — very sweet and feminine.
Be Delicious by DKNY — great for everyday wear, but not really me.
Dior J'adore — plum/peachiness was nice, but its a bit mature.
With Love by Hilary Duff — loved the creaminess and exotic fruitiness, but hated the musk and incense, and too boozy.
Lancome Magnifique and Hypnose — she liked them but got bored of them quickly.
Cherry Blossom by L'Occitane — liked it, but single notes are boring and it doesn't really have any mystery.
Britney Spears Fantasy — didn't like, all I could smell was the sugary sweetness, nothing else at all.
Clinique Happy — not a big fan of citrus, very bland and safe and for a more mature demographic.
Gucci by Gucci — the musk was overpowering and too heavy and mature.
Nina by Nina Ricci — too girly and too young and smelled generic for some reason.
What say you?
