  1. Some Notes on Hawaii

    Well, I was hoping to have some photos to go along with this, but I don't seem to have a way to make a new album. I guess I'll just have to work on that later...

    Of course we’re all unique. But how large are our differences? There are fragrances – rose, lemon, vanilla, coffee, … – that most of us are very familiar with. We’ve all learned to recognize them, we associate the same fragrances with the same sources, and we use the same names for them. But what about less familiar odors? I wouldn’t have recognized a fougere or chypre before I got into fragrances.

    I'm thinking about how wide the differences are in the way people experience ...
  5. Thoughts from Major Sniffa on 18 June 2011

    Fleeting and not so fleeting thoughts:

    Le Labo Rose: Upon sniffing, I thought I was "sold". Admittedly Kat and I went in with the expectation of a purchase. I like to hold off and ruminate for days before I make a purchase, so I did that. Now, I'm not so sure I like it any better than Kingdom, another cumin-rose, but much louder. And I got Kingdom for a song, so...

    I'll be chewing on this one for longer. I'll probably score a decant, live in it for awhile ...
