amber, patchouli, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut, licorice.


cardamom, caraway, cloves, tobacco, sandal wood, chocolate, cocoa, mango, rum, orris root, ylang-ylang, civet, musk...

Can't stand at all:

aldehydes, tons of floral notes (there is almost non flower that I'm not allergic to ), green notes, benzoin.

My only real dislikes are two notes that make me sneeze when used in high concentrations: cinnamon and mimosa. Any note can be stunning in the right perfumer's hands.

- Insence
- Wood, especially cypress
- Neroli
- Citrusses if not too synthetic
- Roasted coffeebeans
- Resins in general
- Roasted cocoabeans

Not my thing:

- Aquatics
- Fruits except for citrusses
- Floral fruity / fruity floral
- Overdosed and synthetic vanilla
- Pretty much any perfume for men that was released before 2000

Did you always want to know what your favorite fragrance notes were? I thought this would be an easy way to visually identify what seem to be my favorite notes in fragrances. I placed the notes of my current collection into a word cloud program like Wordle and this was the result.
