  1. The benefit of blind buying

    The great thing about blind buying a well researched fragrance is that it forces you to get to know the fragrance and see it's beautiful aspects. You begin to break the fragrance down and all of a sudden there are notes and periods of development that you do enjoy. You might start wearing the fragrance in various different dosages to determine what works best on your skin. You might wear it in different temperatures and find it works best in winter or summer.

  5. Not so (l)oud please! Part 2

    Since oud resin is actually the product of a mould infection, this automatically means that it can be harvested only from trees that are literally sick.
