Today we're helping Sara, who is looking for her signature fragrance. She's doesn't have a budget: she's willing to pay for the "right" perfume. She does most of her perfume shopping online or while traveling. Here is what we know about Sara:
Sara is in her late 20s. She's a graphic designer who lives in a small coast town in the north of Sweden.
Sarah is tall and thin with green eyes and short hair. She loves clothes, especially high heels, and some of her favorite designers are Acne, Ann Demeulmeester and Prada; she also appreciates quirkiness of John Galliano.
She loves big cities such as Paris and New York ("I get a kick out of the energy and the huge crowds") and tries to travel as much as she can. She loves shopping, going to concerts and browsing in art galleries. Sara also likes to stroll in the woods with her Border Terrier, and she loves the smell of the trees and moss, especially in the autumn.
Sara likes gourmand fragrances (but often finds them dull), incense (but often finds it too dry), and musk. Some of the perfumes she likes:
Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan ("makes me feel on top of things") and Clair de Musc ("clean and sophisticated).
Narciso Rodriguez For Her Eau de Toilette ("for a night out, love the orange blossom").
Sinfonia Di Note Amande Sucree ("ultimate cashmere sweater scent").
The People of the Labyrinths Luctor et Emergo ("funny, like the incense a lot").
Parfumerie Generale Musc Maori ("like the chocolate and the mix of the green").
L'Artisan Vanilia ( "great all the way. mellow") and Fleur de Narcisse ("the tobacco and hay are great").
10 Corso Como ("the rose is muted, the sandalwood is amazing in this one, also it's a bit smoky").
Guerlain Apres L'Ondee ("the vanillic dry down").
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique ("the orange blossom and dry down").
Il Profumo Musc Bleu ("so clean").
Sara does not like fig, heavy florals, aquatics or overly citrus-y fragrances, and she also doesn't like peach or plum. In general, she doesn't like the brands Montale or Parfumerie Generale. Some of the perfumes Sara dislikes include:
L'Artisan Premier Figuier ("headache").
Diptyque Philosykos ("too much alcohol").
Serge Lutens Miel de Bois ("too sweet headache"), Fumerie Turque ("ashtray"), A la nuit ("urine and flowers"), Ambre Sultan ("too spicy and masculine"), Daim Blond ("too sweet, rubbery"), Louve ("too sugary"), Un Bois Vanille ("plastic-y"), Rahat Loukhoum ("too much cherry").
Hors La Monde Shiloh ("too mature").
Caron Farnesiana ("too mature").
