I have tried a lot of perfumes. OK, compared to a more experienced perfumista my "Perfumes I´ve tried-list" is kind of short, but I am closing in to about 500 tried perfumes. There is a link to my Basenote-wardrobe here, but that´s a bit shorter, since i don´t always remember all perfumes I try or sometimes they aren´t in the basenotes directory.
It would be hidious if I wanted all the perfumes I´ve tried or even if I wanted about half of them. It isn´t quite that bad, it seems like I like about 10% of the perfumes I try so much that I would like more of them.
Or rather a little less than 10%, since it seem I become a little harder to win me over as I try more and more perfumes.
So my wish list is kind of scaled down, in most cases I would be more than content to have a decant of the scent. A 100 ml bottle for about 150 euro, it would last me a lifetime, since I prefer to change perfume often, even several times a day. But a 30 or 50 ml bottle for about 50-60 euro seem more appropriate. And when it comes to mainstream perfumes I can find on the net for about 20 euro, there isn´t much to think about.
With a little more than a month until Christmas I´ve made a wish list with perfumes that works good this time of year.
My Christmas wish list:
1) Parfumerie Generale´s Aomassai, Felanilla or Lounges Profanes.
2) Serge Lutens Musc Koublai Khan or Borneo 1834.
3) Frederic Malle`s Carnal Flower.
4) L'artisan´s Safran Troublant or Bois Farine.
5) Tauer´s L'Air du Desert Marocain.
6) Montale´s Red Aoud.
There you go, and there is only ten of them!
Which ten or less perfumes are on top of your wish list? Do you prefer a big bottle of perfume or ten 10 mls decants? I rather have ten decants I think.
