Saturday Poll: What Is Your Favourite Perfume Genre?

Last week’s poll focused on the age old debate of spraying vs dabbing. Unsurprisingly, due to the fact that is the most commonly available application method, spraying won the battle with a total of 73.5% of the vote. What I found particularly interesting about the results was the fact that 20% answered that they didn’t care how the perfume was applied and a number of comments stated that it actually depended on the perfume as to whether they sprayed or dabbed, with dabbing being the preferred method of application for pure parfum/extrait and spraying for Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette.

The Poll

This week’s poll moves on to a completely different subject, that of perfume genres. Tastes in perfume tend to be fairly eclectic and most fumeheads own a number of bottles from a variety of fragrance families, but most will also have a favourite, and I want to know what yours is. Register your vote and let me know your thoughts in the comments box below!

My Vote

I did think long and hard about my favourite genre because my tastes are very eclectic, I like all types. But after a while the answer was obvious because there are a great number of perfumes in my collection that belonged to just one genre – Floral. I said in a recent post that “I just can’t help myself when it comes to florals” and this really seems to be the case, in my collection I have all types; white florals, soliflores, florientals, aldehydic florals, heady florals, soft florals, photorealistic florals and abstract florals to name just a few. I simply cannot get enough of the flowery stuff!
