Kristina, who says she got interested in perfume about 2 years ago, is looking for a new fall / winter perfume that will work for day or night. She has good access to perfume stores, online and off, and she can pay up to €150. Here is what we know about Kristina:
She lives in Germany, where she works as a communication manager in public television.
She is interested in all cultural things like music, arts etc. and loves to take trips to Paris or New York.
She also loves nature, yoga and hiking.
Kristina's "signature scent” so far had been Chanel No. 19. She likes green and citrus notes, rose, osmanthus, iris, woods, vetiver, raisins, soft leather, incense and smoky notes. She generally likes chypres. Her current rotation includes Parfums DelRae Mythique, Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose, Chanel Bel Respiro and Hermès Osmanthe Yunnan.
Kristina doesn't like heavy white florals, anything too gourmand (including vanilla, clove, cinnamon), or ozonic /and marine notes. She doesn't like anything too sweet, which rules out most of the Serge Lutens line.
Here are some of the fragrances Kristina has tried:
Parfum d'Empire Wazamba: she adored it, but then it turned to candy.
L'Artisan Tea for Two: nice but a bit too cozy.
L'Artisan Timbuktu: she hasn't made up her mind yet, but it might be too masculine.
Chanel 31, rue Cambon: close to perfection, but she doesn't want to buy 200 ml.
