Today we're helping Cailyn, who has been wearing Guerlain Mitsouko for 20 years. Lately she's finding that the Eau de Parfum smells different — she says it "used to move quickly to the bottom notes and almost wear like a skin scent on me... [now it gets] stuck in the middle notes". She wants to find something new, hopefully within her price limit of around $100.
Here is what we know about Cailyn:
She says she has a very sensitive nose and stomach.
She used to work in psychology, but she's currently educating her child at home.
Cailyn loved the warmth, wood, and spice of Mitsouko, and says it was alluring rather than loud. She leans towards woody orientals that aren't powdery or overly sweet (see below). She also likes perfumes that change over the course of the day, and she prefers fragrances that stay close to the skin — no big sillage, please. Unisex fragrances are ok so long as they aren't too masculine.
Cailyn doesn't like powder, overly floral, overly gourmet, or overly sweet smelling scents.
What say you?
