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...

Michelle loves vetiver, chypre perfumes, sandalwood, patchouli and incense. Some of her favorite perfumes include Reminiscence Patchouli Elixir, Yves Saint Laurent Opium, Narciso Rodriguez, Thierry Mugler Angel, Paloma Picasso, Prada (original) and Prada L'Eau Ambree. Michelle dislikes...

This will be the last Monday Mail post before summer break. If you'd like to get on the waiting list for September (it's very short at the moment), do follow the instructions here. Today we're helping Caroline, who wants to find her perfect everyday scent, something she will be comfortable...

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 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...

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...

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...

Lisa doesn't care for marine and ozone notes, heavy tuberose, white florals and orange blossom, dirty leather, musks or overly sweet celebrity perfumes. She does not care for the Chanel or Tom Ford lines, Guerlain Shalimar (she likes the opening, but not the later mustiness), Serge Lutens...

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...

Fragrance favorites include Hermès Un Jardin en Méditerranée & Un Jardin après la Mousson (though it verges on too gingery to her lately), Guerlain Mandarine Basilic (for playing tennis or hot weather), Tom Ford Violet Blonde (very animalic/cumin-y on her, and sexy). She also has a bottle of...
