The Monday Mail is back from vacation! If you'd like to get on the waiting list, you can find the instructions here. We're currently taking names for late October / early November.
Malissa, who is thirty and married with no kids (but several pets), wants our help finding a versatile fragrance she can wear all year round, day or night. Malissa lives in Oregon, and loves going to the beach and being outdoors. She does most of her shopping online, and her price limit for her new fragrance is $150.
Malissa likes vanilla, amber, pepper, musk, and woods; she sometimes likes green notes but finds many green fragrances too sharp. She also likes realistic ("easy to recognize") floral notes, and wonders if a soliflore might be a good thing? Perfumes Malissa has liked include Avon True Glow, Jennifer Lopez Miami Glow and Donna Karan Cashmere Mist. Perfumes that were "just ok" include Dior Midnight Poison and Victoria's Secret Very Sexy red (the first one). She liked the opening of Chanel Chance, but the dry down was annoying.
Malissa doesn't like like ginger, gardenia, tuberose, anise, or heavy spices. Perfumes that don't work for her include Thierry Mugler Angel, Bvlgari Black, Tom Ford Purple Patchouli & Black Orchid, and Kim Kardashian.
