Today we are helping Micha, who lives in Egypt and is looking for a new everyday casual fragrance. She'd like to pay no more than $100-120 for a 100 ml bottle. She has access to mainstream prestige fragrances but not niche lines, and she can't shop online. She does travel a couple times a year, so might be able to look for other brands then. Here is what we know about Micha:
She's in her early 40s and has olive skin and long curly brown hair.
She's married and has a young son. She says she exercises regularly, has a slim athletic build and loves being active, healthy and busy.
Her wardrobe leans towards smart casual and simple, but she's recently started to buy some items "with a twist", and she says she is an early adopter of fashion trends. She loves leather, cotton and linen, dislikes silk and lace; favorite brands include Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Calvin Klein.
Micha likes green, fruity and fresh perfumes. Past loves include Gres Cabotine, Prescriptives Calyx, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Dior Fahrenheit and Trussardi Action.
She used to like florals (Yves Saint Laurent Paris, Christian Dior J'adore) but now she finds them dull and sometimes suffocating in the heat. She generally dislikes sweet and gourmand notes, but she received a bottle of Juicy Couture as a gift and finds it doesn't smell too bad on her.
Micha currently wears Terre d'Hermès, which her husband received as a gift and which she finds complex and elegant, and Un Jardin Sur Le Nil, which she later purchased herself and loves. She also wears Guerlain Samsara in the winter, when it smells clean on her skin. She tried Hermès Eau Des Merveilles but felt it had less character than Terre d'Hermès or Un Jardin Sur Le Nil.
