  1. Perfume - Stinking Great?

    I've just read the article in the 'Just Starting Out' forum - - some of the more "nasty" notes/ingredients in fragrance

    And it was one of the best reads I've gotten on perfume, amusing and full of not so pretty truths about what at first appears classic and beautiful.

  2. Paris, Chapter 3. Closure with pics :)

    I am back to Berlin and wiritng this final report at my own desktop.

  5. Scent as an Aphrodisiac... For Real? Part 2

    Someone posted about "finding that elusive 'sexy' scent." For me, it kind of brought up my first post on this topic again. in a slight twist on what I wrote in the first scent-as-aphrodisiac blog post, this was my reply to that thread:

    Even assuming that scents really do have aphrodisiac properties (which I am inclined to doubt — see my blog post here), I wonder if the same one would really work on everybody, don't you?

    I mean, my experience is that different
