Today's subject is Zaheer. He lives in South Africa, and says new fragrances take some time to get to his area (assuming they get there at all). He's looking for the perfect fragrance, one that will go from a day in the office to a night out on the town. Here are a few details about Zaheer:
He's in his mid-20s and works as a copywriter.
His hobbies: reading and blogging. Zaheer prefers overcast wet weather to sunny and clear.
He has a tendency to be very formal in his attire. He loves the Baroque era, and his apartment is "very Victorian in its décor".
Zaheer is attracted to woody scents and "dark mature fragrances". Notes he loves include olive wood, cypress, bergamot, jasmine, mandarin, sandalwood and patchouli. Fragrances Zaheer has liked and/or purchased in the past include Gucci for men, Zanzibar by Coty, Guerlain L’Instant Guerlain, Tom Ford Black Orchid, Joop Pour Homme and Hermes Terre d'Hermes.
Zaheer dislikes fruity notes, watermelon, citrus zest and orange. He does not like D&G Pour Homme, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, Kiton, Hugo Boss Boss in Motion or anything by DKNY. He found all 5 of the new D&G Anthology fragrances too bland, and Gucci Pour Homme II "is not exciting in the least and disappears after an African breeze". He likes the opening of Armani Code for Men but finds it needs to be reapplied every couple hours.
