Today we're helping Jacqueline. She's looking for a replacement for her long time signature scent, Escada Margaretha Ley. She says everyone knew her by that fragrance, and she misses it. She also wore Dior's Tendre Poison, and she misses that too. Here is what we know about Jacqueline:
She's in her mid 40s and is happily married. She lived in Bangladesh for a few years, right now she is living in the Netherlands.
She is tall with dark brown hair. She used to work in luxury cosmetics, but now she helps in her husband's logistics company and does volunteer work.
She loves gold, and hates fake things: she says she wants the real thing or nothing at all.
Jacqueline is currently wearing Chanel Coco and Boucheron. She also owns Ralph Lauren Safari (wears it now and then), Jean Patou Sublime (ditto), Must de Cartier (only wears in very cold weather), Jil Sander 4 (gets lots of compliments, but she finds it cloying), Fendi Palazzo (her wedding scent, but now discontinued), Chanel No. 5 (gorgeous but she gets sick of it quickly), Hermès 24 Faubourg (lovely but too soapy), Estee Lauder Spellbound (she does not like the reformulation), Estee Lauder Knowing (she wore it for years, but now finds it gets dirty on her skin) and Bond no. 9 Chinatown (her "love hate" scent).
She does not like too much vanilla, musk or patchouli.
Here are some of the fragrances she has tried recently:
Lalique Amethyst: beautiful and her husband loves it, but she goes crazy smelling like berries all day.
Lalique Encre Noire: too flat and soapy.
Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Soie Rouge: she almost loves it, but too much carnation and too sharp.
Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial: she loved it for a week, then found it too powdery.
Clinique Aromatics Elixir: she loves it, but finds it not feminine enough to wear.
What say you?
