For her (Scents)

Well, mainly for me. The scents may smell differently from how your brain perceived it and I highly recommend asking sales ladies at department-store counters to spray on your arm and walk around the mall the whole day to determine if it’s suitable for your body temperature.

My skin profile: Body Temperature is around 36°C // 96.8°F. Environment Temperature is around 23°C to 30°C // 73.4°F to 86°F.

Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum

Gorgeous scent. In my mind, it's the highest tier amongst all other perfumes here. Extrait lasts longer than regular.


Moved up from 6th to 1st because it really grows on me.

Etat Libre D'orange

I am Trash

This is a surprise. I can see why it's such a fan-favourite. The first few seconds was a hit of spring and apple trees. When it settles down, it smelled of unconditional love and feeling of secure. Like warm embrace of someone with deep loving feelings.

This is probably the best perfume that I have ever come across. It's fresh and flowery but with a lot of elegance in it.
