My taste in perfumes does not vary greatly- sexy and intense like Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb, or clean and crisp like Dolce&Gabanna Light Blue. I like woodsy, vanilla, complex, clean, deep, confident, or sometimes a little masculine scents. Fragrances are hard to describe, so I added in definitions from Sephora.com to help me out. If you are a perfume buff and want more perfume recommendations with perfect descriptions, I highly suggest checking out Charles Gross on YouTube. Besides his channel being hilarious, he is passionate about perfumes. Watching him has introduced me to a few of these fragrances this past year.
The scents below are categorized just for organization purposes by daytime, nighttime, and some that could go either way. The daytime fragrances are light and fresh, the evening scents deeper and stronger. I have nothing against wearing the nighttime category during earlier hours of the day, but I tend to go easy when spraying because some are quite intense.
