Today we're helping Lilian, who lives in Brazil and wants to find two new fragrances that will work in Brazil's hot weather: one for work and one for not-at-work. She can buy online, and is also planning a trip to the US so will have other shopping opportunities. She isn't worried about the price. Here is what we know about Lilian:
She's a doctor in her early 30s, is active all day long, and says she is happy but introspective.
She wears "colorful but not fancy clothes" ranging from high heels to jeans and t-shirts.
She loves reading, watching movies, running, going to the gym and practicing yoga, and she also loves nature and camping with her boyfriend.
Lilian would like her daytime fragrance to be "fresh, a bit elegant and remarkable", and she'd prefer something other than citrus. Right now she wears Estee Lauder Pleasures to work, and she likes it but wants something different.
The second fragrance should work for evening, but should not be so heavy that she couldn't also wear it during the day. It should make her feel good and have a fun spirit, and it could be something "a bit weird and curious".
Lilian likes green floral scents, earth scents, moss and wood scents, and dry and peppery notes. She doesn't like gourmands or overly spicy scents, and she doesn't like overbearing florals or fruits.
Fragrances that Lilian has liked: Estee Lauder Pleasures, Gucci Envy, Dior Diorissimo (although it's probably too floral), Tommy Hilfiger Dreaming & Tommy Girl (but it's probably too "cute"), Guerlain Precious Heart (probably a bit too sweet) and Ralph Lauren Style & Romance.
Fragrances she doesn't like: Thierry Mugler Angel (too sweet), Chanel No. 5 (too mature) and No. 19, Donna Karan Black Cashmere (made her sick), Clinique Aromatics Elixir, Cacharel LouLou (bleh!) and Anais Anais (too mature), Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Davidoff Cool Water, Issey Miyake L'Eau de Issey (doesn't last), Nautica Voyage, Bvlgari Omnia (and all of the flankers), Christian Dior Poison (all of them), D&G The One, Hermès Eau des Merveilles.
