Today we're helping Fani, who loves perfume and wants to find her signature scent. It should be something she can wear year round, and she'd prefer something niche so she'd be less likely to smell it on others. She can spend up to $150, but needs suggestions she can find in (or have shipped to) Greece, where she lives. Here is what we know about Fani:
She's in her late 30s, and says her style is casual and classic: neither sporty nor suits & pumps, but somewhere in between.
Fani says she is introspective and imaginative, and loves to curl up in an armchair by the fire with a really nice book and a cup of tea. But she says she also has some fire in her personality, and she wants that reflected in her perfume.
She loves books and romantic movies, especially those set during the Regency / Victorian period (à la Pride & Prejudice). But she also loves vampire and assassin movies, and hard rock is her favorite music.
Fani likes oriental, spicy, incensey fragrances with amber and/or vanilla. Some of her favorites include Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan and Lubin Idole.
Fani dislikes fruity scents, and many florals (orange blossom, tuberose, rose). She also doesn't like anything overly sweet or aquatic, and she isn't fond of old fashioned or vintage perfumes. Fragrances that don't work for her include Clinique Happy, Thierry Mugler Angel, Lolita Lempicka, Armani Code, Miss Rochas, Caron Parfum Sacre, Chanel No 5, Aqaba, Estee Lauder White Linen and Guerlain Shalimar.
