Speaking of myrrh... I recall many years ago being introduced to "church incense" that was composed of bits of frankincense and myrrh (and maybe other things), and "burned" using a special charcoal "disk." Really nice. Could get pretty intense though... May have to go looking for it again.
The opposite of love isn't hate.
Yeah, that stuff is really lovely, approaching the level of an experience. Believe I got multiple kinds from an Orthodox Christian church source, and it was quite nice. The Catholics probably get the best, straight from Somalia. You are correct about its strength. If your bedroom is smaller than a church, you're in trouble. Easily the best experience I had of being an altar boy, other than stealing wine, eavesdropping on the confessional, and doing drugs with the priests (just kidding about most of that) was getting to incense the church. That probably was a formative experience. It wouldn't suprise me to learn the incense was spiked with civet, because smelling civet reminds me of the old priest who ran the parish. All these decades later, to remember he smelled of civet. Why? I doubt he woke up and smeared some on. Didn't seem like that kind of priest.
When designing a fragrance is there a conflict between what we like to smell on ourselves & what others would like to smell on us ... ?
But we all feel better if we wear a fragrance which we like the smell of on us.
I like a gentle warm musky smell - clean warm skin ?
A fresh smell (what notes are employed here ?) in hot weather is refreshing, & yet a warm spicy smell (which notes ?) is attractive in cold weather so the outside temperature is is relevant here.
Different scents for different seasons ?
I'm in Singapore, all year round summer. I like Davidoff Cool Water, Armani Acqua Di Gio, Issey Miyaki for day wear as they give me lasting fresh smell in hot humid Singapore. At night I prefer Gucci Rush and Fahrenheit.
Perfume: Nautica Voyage
I like any perfume that would make women attracted to me. And for different seasons I like different smells. For example, in summber, I like "lemon" smells, but in winter, I like "chocolate" smells.
Yeah, you have to account for weather. I can wear spicy scents and earthy scents in the summer, though, just less of them. But I wear more citrus in the summer. Interesting we have someone repping for chocolate. Gourmands sometimes get no respect.
