Tommy Girl Jeans by Tommy Hilfiger

Tommy Girl Jeans by Tommy Hilfiger

NOTES: mandarin, grapefruit, bitter orange, oceanic, herbaceous, chipotle woods

My great-Aunt bought the original Tommy Girl perfume for me not long after its debut in 1996. Although I liked it, and wore it from time to time, I never loved it. However, when shopping for perfumes last weekend, I happened upon a tester and sprayed it, and I find that I like it now much better than I did twelve years ago. As soon as I saw Tommy Girl Jeans for a super low price online, I decided to take the plunge, as it claims to be a fruiter version of the original.

CLASSIFICATION: Oriental/Spicy

AGE GROUP: College/Mature

M by Mariah Carey

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): tahitian tiare, gardenia, amber, marshmallow, sea breeze accord, patchouli, moroccan incense

I know full well that M by Mariah Carey is not my fragrance style by any means, but I wanted to try it open-mindedly, just to see what I’m missing. At the fragrance counter, I sprayed it once, not even generously, on just one of my wrists, then went home. As soon as my fiance came upstairs to greet me, he exclaimed “What did you just spray? YOU SPRAYED WAY TOO MUCH PERFUME!”

CLASSIFICATION: floriental (floral oriental)

AGE GROUP: college / mature
