Sherrie’s working in the perfume industry and she knows her scents! 🙂 I loved her description of each type and how she decomposed them into their flowery elements. Want to share with you her insight regarding a few fragrances…
It’s really classic. Its status in the perfume history is same as JOY… both are bouquet types, or say, flowery.
So far, as the perfumes I used, I like CD’s Dune the best. Only a drop is enough. It’s warm, steady and peaceful for me. I gave Luan Kan a bottle of perfume, with the note of CKone like. She likes that very much. It’s delight and relaxing.
U said u like Oui. I checked the composition. It has the simple fragrance. Simple flowery note, blends with some citrus note like Colongue, and then the bottom is some musky note. I bet u would like CK-one too. If u wanna try others, u may ask the attendant for other perfumes with White Flowers note. White flower note means it contains the smell of jasmine, lily, tuberose, ylang ylang, gardenia, honeysuckle, magnolia & etc.. They are refreshing, not ‘thick’
Though, how i wish i may smell Oui and Temps right now and right here. If so, I would have some more detail comments. Up to now, I am only imagining their scent… ~ build on the info of their compostion…
Aroma is exciting for me…
BTW, I dont like the fashionable Fruity-Flower note. I have a feeling that they r cheap, and too aggressive, though in this section, some perfumes are quite successful. U try CD’s J Ador, and Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflower if possible, then tell me if u like it.
In a word, I believe flowery, oriental, aldehydic are the essential for women because they r cosy, passionate , calm AND elegant. These should be the elements for a Lady.
For those other perfumes cited in this article, Green Poison, Cool water,… no idea.

Not sure about you, but I think a visit to the department store is due! Will bring a notebook with me, too. 🙂
