Today we're helping Julia, who is struggling to find the perfect scent to fit her current lifestyle. It must be serious, graceful and classic enough to work in her daytime professional environment, but intriguing enough to make a lasting impression and to carry her into the evening. She can spend up to $160, and has good access to perfume stores. Here is what we know about Julia:
She's in her mid 20s, and she lives in Stockholm, Sweden, where she studies business and political science at the University while working at a corporate law firm.
Her days are varied, sometimes all day in the library, other times in the office, and then she also meets friends for dinner or attends other events such as release parties or live performances at clubs.
Julia loves music, and is currently re-discovering 90s electro and motown soul.
She also loves fine dining, not that it has to be expensive, but she loves the experience of discovering new tastes and combinations, and she finds food and wine a close to perfect combination of the senses — taste, smell, sight.
Julia likes rose, jasmine, sandalwood, lily, bergamot and leather.
She doesn't like citrus, mint, melon, eucalyptus or red berries.
Here are some of the perfumes Julia has tried:
Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne: too pungent and sweet.
Dolce & Gabbana The One: she loved it but gave it up because her friend wears it.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue: too light, fresh and outdated.
Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau: she current wears this, but finds it too green.
Gucci Envy: too floral and too light.
