Sondra wants to find a new perfume with "significant green notes and some floral notes". She can spend up to $150, and while she doesn't have great access to perfume shops, buying online and sampling through decants is her usual method of trying fragrances anyway. Here is what we know about Sondra:
She's a therapist in her early 50s.
She's an outdoorsy person who would rather spend a day hiking or with a book than at the mall or indoors.
Most of her clothes come second-hand, partially because she likes the aesthetic of gently used things. Her favorite articles of clothing are preppy, but not in a polished, chirpy way, more in a slightly worn and comfortably rumpled way.
Sondra likes galbanum, rose, hawthorn, lilac and heliotrope. So far, Laura Tonatto Albi is the closest match she's found to what she's looking for. She also likes Guerlain L’Heure Bleue (but it is too formal), BPAL Death on a Pale Horse (but it’s a little too masculine), and Estée Lauder Estée (but she'd like something lighter and more spring-like).
Sondra dislikes sweet and/or cloying fragrances, and most fruity florals, although she did wear Prescriptives (now Clinique) Calyx at one time.
