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...

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...

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...

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...

Perfumes she likes or owns include Balenciaga Paris (she likes it, but it's almost too innocent for her taste), Bvlgari Jasmin Noir (but she finds it doesn't last and she can't always smell it on herself), Calvin Klein Eternity Moment (a little too flowery, but still, she's never received...

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...

He disliked most of the Ralph Lauren Big Pony series (but sometimes wears #3 when he's feeling sporty), and he isn't crazy about Lacoste Style In Play or Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme (a bit too safe). He not sure about the Serge Lutens line (intriguing but often seem to have strong artificial...

Yves Saint Laurent Cinema: very wearable and just the right amount of flowers, amber, and vanilla. Bottega Veneta: overpoweringly floral; reminded her of the big-haired eighties numbers. Miller Harris Fleurs de Sel: too heavy on the patchouli. Aedes de Venustas Signature: too...

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...
