I'm really bad at picking out scents that I like just from the description, though. T_T I love Issey Miyake's A Drop on a Petal, but I have no clue what it smells like. XD;;; I know I tend to like florals more than spice/musk/herbal scents, I like teas, "ocean" or "water" smells, sometimes citrus smells, and sometimes food scents (but not too often, as I find I get sick of them). I also tend to like smells that make me think of blue or green. (But not in a mint, pine, or grass way.)
So yeah. Most likely I'm going to tackle people who live near me who have scents I want to smell and sniff them. XDD I made a list of what perfumes at Bpal I'm most interested in, just so I can keep track of them. Not even all of them are things I'd even be interested in wearing... just curious as to how they smell. XD
