Perfume experiments #2: One fragrance, twenty reactions

Wet forest, smoky, watermelon, spicy, cucumber, familiar, green, musky, morning, comforting, earthy, woody, apple, cigarettes, disruptive, nice, childhood, fluffy, warm, shipwrecked.

All words to describe one fragrance, but - as you can see - no reaction was quite the same.  Perfume triggers instinctive reactions from us all, recalling memories, likes and loathes our consciousness might not. Some of the people who tried this particular scent loved it or knew it; others would not have chosen it themselves.

That the fragrance was unique for each of them isn’t all that surprising, particularly as perfume react to the tiniest changes in your body’s chemistry. Everything from your skin’s pH level to your changing body heat throughout the day can affect a scent.

The technical complexity of perfume is not a language many understand, but this doesn’t diminish its power as a form of expression. A dab of perfume can be controversial, memorable, or evocative. It can be the ultimate form of experimentation and is one many are very protective of. Some love to change their scent each day, morning and night with their moods; others may use one scent every day for the rest of their lives.

Can you guess which perfume they tried?
