    I’m personally tired of the use of tonka bean and ambroxan and in general perfumes that smell like cake or dessert. I feel like this ‘era’ has overstayed its welcome

    something that feels natural so nobody could tell if you actually sprayed something on yourself or not

      Like something that smells closer to skin or closer to the detergent that clothes are washed in?

      >What is the fragrance industry doing wrong?
      Too many useless flankers. It’s become a bit of a plague, some brands like Armani or YSL release basically nothing but redundant flankers at this point. And people eat thia shit up – how many more flankers of ADG do we need?
      >What do you wish the fragrance industry did more?
      Brand new fragrances that at least try to differentiate themselves a bit.
      >What annoys you the most about the fragrance industry?
      The price-gouging and prevalence of pseudo-luxury brands with no heritage or in-house production is the big one.
      >What notes are overused?
      Tonka, calone, ambroxan.
      >What notes are underused?
      That’s a harder one. More myrrh would be nice.

      Brand new fragrances that at least try to differentiate themselves a bit.
      differentiate how?

        you know, not flankers or things that smell like flankers or copycats
        I think of the designer brands, Hermes did that recently with H24

        I’m ok with any of them tbh
        it’s just the fact that a man wearing perfume makes him look desperate for attention
        >inb4 I wear it for myself
        no you don’t, you’d do that at home in private

            I’m sure you are and I do it too, but that was not my point
            if you wear a fragrance outside it’s not only for yourself

          Is being desperate for attention actually a bad thing? I have heard people label this economy the attention economy… Also whenever I smell a woman wearing nice perfume my first thought is that smells nice, then I attribute the fragrance to the person having taste and personality. Desperate for attention is like having implants with your boobs hanging out, or driving a honda civic with loud exhaust pipes. Wearing an expensive or exclusive or generally great smelling fragrance isn’t desperate and it’s actually not a bad thing in my opinion.

            Why? Isn’t that the essence of being famous?
            It’s hard to argue that being famous is bad if it’s a business decision.

            Also this thread is about specific questions relating to fragrances. Correlating wearing a fragrance with being desperate for attention is a bait level exaggeration. Is this what kids who don’t wear deodorant at anime conventions think?
