Today we're helping Rena, who is postmenopausal and finds that with the hormonal shifts, everything smells different: top notes are becoming sharper, tenacity and sillage are increasing. She'd like us to help her find some (more) perfumes she can still wear. She has good access to perfume...

Caroline doesn't like strong floral bouquets (Dior Poison, Giorgio Beverly Hills), sweet gourmand or very fruity scents, light candy notes (Thierry Mugler Angel), light citrus or simple oceanic fragrances (Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrien). She also doesn't care for sharp spicy orientals (Chanel...

Some of her favorites include Annick Goutal Ambre Fetiche, Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan and Lubin Idole. Fani dislikes fruity scents, and many florals (orange blossom, tuberose, rose). She also doesn't like anything overly sweet or aquatic, and she isn't fond of old fashioned or vintage...

The Monday Mail returns from its summer vacation this week, although it will be off again next Monday for Labor Day. Our first subject for the fall season is Lisa, who has been seriously interested in perfume for a couple years. She would love to find a really special fragrance — possibly her...

The Monday Mail is helping Genevieve today — she'd like to find a perfect first-date scent. It should be a little unusual but not too sexy or too unisex. She'd be happiest if it cost under $100 — she doesn't go on so many dates to justify a huge splurge — although she'd go as high as $150 if...

The Monday Mail is back from the holiday break, and we're kicking things off with Lori, who wants to find a versatile fragrance she can wear everyday, but that is sexy enough for a night out.
