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...

After today, the Monday Mail will be taking its annual holiday vacation — look for it to return in early January. Right now there are only 2 people remaining on the waiting list, so if you've been thinking of participating it's not a bad time to get on the list. Today's subject is Tarra, who...

Today we're helping Pamela, and after that, the Monday Mail goes on its holiday vacation — it will return in January. If you'd like to get on the waiting list, see here. Pamela wants to find a new signature fragrance that's more interesting than the generic fruity florals at Macy's and...

Before we start with today's victim, I did want everyone to know that the Monday Mail will be taking a quick spring break. After today, no Monday Mail for 2 weeks, then it will return on May 9. So, today we're helping Tom. Tom says he is a relative newcomer to fragrance appreciation. He...

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. Her ideal scent would be something that could be worn lightly or with a heavier hand, depending on her...

Today we're helping Fani, who loves perfume and wants to find her signature scent. It should be something she can wear year round, and she'd prefer something niche so she'd be less likely to smell it on others. She can spend up to $150, but needs suggestions she can find in (or have shipped...

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 returns from its holiday vacation today (and look for a Monday Mail feedback post next week). We're starting off the new year with Kristen, who discovered Boucheron Jaïpur Saphir in Paris back in 1999 and has worn it ever since. Now that it's discontinued, she'd like to find a...

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...

This week Elena wants us to help her find something more complex and rich than what she usually wears, but something she can still wear frequently — not a special occasion perfume. She has no set limit on the price, but she'd prefer to find something under $200. Here is what we know about...
