jayzpenney asked: as someone born with congenital anosmia (without a sense of smell) can you suggest perfumes for me from ur great perfume wisdom that would make me smell fresh/earthy/idk how to explain this but basically like a mountaingirl that isn't too crazy expensive? thanks!!!


Oh this is an interesting situation! You’re looking for aromatic greens. Here are my suggestions:

  • Amazinggreen by Comme des Garcons ($100~) - Palm tree leaves, green pepper, dew mist, jungle leaves, Ivy leaves, orris roots, coriander seeds, silex, Gunpowder accord, vetiver, smoke, white musk. To me, it smells like a forest is punching me in the face. Like, literally, if a forest had magical powers and could form a fist and punch me in the face, this is what it would smell like. That event. It’s very fresh and clearing and foresty, like the most vibrant, cold days in spring. You can buy a sample of it for $4. I also love CDG Hinoki. It’s not “fresh” to me, it’s a darker forest. 
  • CK be Calvin Klein Unisex ($25~) - This is very green and then comes in with musks that make is sexy as it develops. First it’s very fresh and it gets darker. Peppermint and greeny in the beginning, then a little florally (but not like roses, blegh), then the darkness. I actually really like it on other people. 
  • Moss & Ivy by For Strange Women ($40) - It’s described as a “forest in a bottle”. Moss, ivy, oak, etc.
