Stereotypes about perfumes

Have you everย thought about stereotypes that make us judje the perfume scent?ย Let's look at some examples:

When we play โ€œblindtestingโ€ with other perfumistas we often hear such geographical stereotypes / judgements about perfumes on the question - โ€œwho could produce / create this perfumeโ€?

Mostly in 60-70% of cases perfumistas are guessing, but sometimes some scents / brands can surprise.

Our top โ€œsurpriseโ€ brands from geographical point of view are โฌ‡๏ธ

Too hippy or provocative to be French classics, but done really good.

This brand can combine such philosophic and meditative scents like Page 29 or Bihaku & cheerful and gourmand pieces like One More or Lullaby.
