Matt has taken dominion over several of the bottles in the perfume cabinet, and we share quite a few more. However, there isn’t one fragrance that is only his. For his birthday this year, I’d like to find him a bottle of his own. Not a hand-me-down, not for sharing.
So I turn to you, dear readers, and ask for a helping hand! You were so helpful to Ari, when she was looking for a new scent for Drew, that I can think of no better resource for this challenging task.
Without further ado, let’s talk about what he already likes or loves… and what he does not.
- Chanel no. 5, Eau Premiere, no. 19, no. 19 Poudre, no. 18; Dior New Look; By Kilian A Taste of Heaven; Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille; Guerlain Jicky parfum
- Bulgari Black; Pre-reformulation Vol de Nuit parfum; Sonoma Scent Studio Champagne de Bois; L’Artisan Safran Troublant
- Chanel no. 22 (surprise! I thought he would love this one); Histoires de Parfums – 1740 (Marquis de Sade)
It’s pretty clear that he likes aldehydes (an AldeHo, if you will), classically femme scents, and isn’t afraid of creamy or sweet notes.
What say you?
