  1. Mystery of Oils...

    I purchased the 'Lisa's Hair Elixer' from the Carol's Daughter line and it's taken me for quite the ride. Initially, I found the peppermint scent so overwhelming that a dime sized amount brushed through my hair cancelled out the scent of ANY perfume I'd sprayed on my wrist. Woah! If not for it's hefty price tag and the fact that my hair feels silky and wonderful I'd have tossed the bottle.

    Then later than night I was brushing my hair before bed and the most wonderful scent was coming ...
  2. Kingdom Replacement 2... DUNE

    Classic Dior - and I was surprised that Dior was a recommendation from anyone who loved Kingdom. None the less I was thrilled when a bottle was gifted to me on behalf of a grandmother who found a bottle of the stuff in the back of her closet and never wears it. Scary that friends are now thinking while grandma is cleaning out her 'too stinky' perfumes, "Hey, I know who might love this!" Anyhoo...

    So, again like Rose 31, it's not that Dune smells anything like Kingdom but ...
  3. 100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 33: The End

    So here we are. 99 suggestions down. Because this has meandered for way longer than I thought it would, I wanted to make an easy-to-read list for my own sake, but Basenotes won't let me post a blog entry that long, so I guess I can't.

    Frankly, I’ve surprised myself. For instance, I’ve never considered Bulgari to be a very notable house, but they’ve made this list three times. Of course, I intentionally avoided getting caught up making a list of the most notable classic feminine ...
  4. 100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 32: Ridiculous Luxury

    Well, here we are. Almost finished. Of course, I’m not enough of a narcissist to actually think anyone is ever going to go out and sample all of these scents just because I wrote a silly blog, but I hope this had made some sort of sense and at least made for an enjoyable way to waste some time. I’ve tried to be educational (well, at least as much as an idiot like me can be) or at least thoughtful. Honestly, most of the serious guys (and ladies!) here have probably tried at least most of these ...

    The Basenotes Darlings – Designer Scents

    92. A*Men Pure Malt by Theiry Mugler

    The malty beer smell of a microbrewery mixed with chocolate, Pure Malt is easily one of the most distinctive and creative scents to come out lately, especially in the “woody amber” aquatic-obsessed mass market of men’s scents. It spawned so many threads on Basenotes that the admins jokingly ...
