Saturday Question #95:
Which Perfume Gets You The Most Compliments?
I realize that the last two years weren’t the best in terms of sharing your olfactory presence with others, but maybe you remember from before our “new normal”: do you think one of your perfumes prompts positive reactions more often than other perfumes in your collection?
Bonus question: Do you choose to wear that perfume for some particular occasions because of that?
If it weren’t for my database, I would have told you that Tom Ford‘s Violet Blonde was my mostly complimented perfume (which makes me regret not buying a bottle of it when it was available: my decant has probably a couple of applications left in it). But I would have been wrong.
After running some calculations, to my surprise, I discovered that perfume that over the last 10 years got me twice as many compliments as the next contender (Violet Blonde, so I wasn’t that off) is… my second all-time favorite Ormonde Jayne Ta’if.
If to think about it, it’s not a complete surprise: as my special occasion perfume, I wear it to those occasions where people are more inclined to compliment me. But still, it didn’t come to my mind on its own, intuitively, without involving dispassionate numbers.
