This post may be TMI (too much information)...beware!
Tonight, I was sweaty (as is often in my peri-menopausal self) and I wiped my armpits with my hand, and had the Moth sniff (not that he hasn't smelled me before, but I was conducting an experiment)
He said "smells like some of the perfumes you have been sniffing" He didn't realise it was just my pit smell - he thought perhaps it was mixed with powder or deodorant or something. I rarely wear deodorant unless work performance makes it necessary.
So, I pulled out Putain de Palaces which I thought was the closest thing that I could think of to me...and what the Moth said after the initial spritz was "you smell better than that."
Now after a few minutes, waiting for the dry down, he says that both Putain and me smell very similar..but that I smell more like a pencil sharpener. Not as 'powdery" as PdP's drydown.
So yes, I'm a whore in a hotel without the sweetness!
