So I have really gotten into niche scents and have watched loads of videos on youtube to learn what scents I might like. Because I know the notes in the perfumes that work for me I usually have an idea I will like a particular scent even before I try it on.
Notwithstanding since I have a sizable perfume store close to where I live I decided to test them out to see which is my favourite and the one I want to get next. So in increasing order of priority here are the scents I would like.
Tom Ford: Noir De Noir
This is a unisex scent with rose, vanilla and patchouli notes all of which are usually in the scents I love. This scent smells like confidence, money (dollars not Naira) and a whole lot of class. It is sultry and sexy at the same time, I would most likely use this at night because of how intense it is but it depends on you.
Frederic Malle: Portrait of a Lady
I first smelled this perfume in an airport duty-free shop and I have never been the same since. It is a female perfume and fully embodies that. This a perfume for a grown woman and also reeks of money and class. Likewise, the notes in this also include rose and patchouli and is a must-have as well.I could use this during the day but it would also be suitable for nighttime as well.

Tom Ford: Lost cherry
Unlike the others on the list, this perfume is lighter and less intense. But that doesn’t make it a less gorgeous as a scent. This perfume has a fresher scent and the main notes are fruity and sweet, not exactly my wheelhouse but good enough that I would certainly love to have a bottle. This I would say is a day scent it is light classy and fresh.
