  1. Perfumey headaches

    Thought this was more suitable for a blog entry as its more of a ramble than any questions!
    My very first batch of supplies from PA arrived yesterday, just 10 days from ordering
    The aroma chems were smellable ( is that a word? ) through the packaging, which should have warned me to throw a window or two open lol.

  2. Perfume creating is not easy!

    So far I seem to be creating things that are reminiscent of various cleaning products.

    Personal Reflections
  5. Ruminations on finding basenotes and falling in love- a thank you.

    Like many people, I chanced upon Basenotes by accident.

    A few months back, I watched Perfume, based on the fabulous novel by Patrick Suskind, and subsequently determined to read the original novel. Unfortunately Perfume has not yet been translated into American English and British translations are scarce (according to Amazon, at least,) so I bought it in Spanish. To make a long story shorter, the world of perfumery exerts a siren's call for certain personalities that led me directly ...
