  1. I quit smoking!

    So, I quit smoking about 2 months ago now. I miss smoking, it was fun. Smoking was fun but stinky. I figured, aside from my health, Dear God I will drop 200 bucks on a bottle of EdP and then dust it with stale tobacco smoke. What am I thinking?

Literally I have sprayed 5 sprays of A&F Fierce, Green Irish Tweed and the worst Diesel Only the Brave ...
  2. My first Basenotes Blog

    As the saying goes: There is a first time for everything. So here is my first Basenotes Blog! The thing Iíll try to do in my blogs here is just write whatís on my mind. About fragrances of course because I donít want to be banned right! So letís do this.

  3. Environmental temperature on fragrances.

    Did you ever think of the temperature may affect or destroy the fragrance you so longingly waiting. For instance, if I am ordering a cologne from Luckyscent, being shipped to Canada.

  4. Battle of the Old School Classics!

    I am new to the BN and fragrance scene and have a question that might be silly to a veteran cologne wearer but my question is.....

    Does Jovan Musk Sex Appeal smell similar to Rive Gauche or in the same category? My girl loves when I wear Sex Appeal and I've seen reviews on RG but have yet to find it in my area.... Can someone who experienced these colognes please help? THNX!
  5. Reviews Update!

    The review section has been completely recoded from the ground up. This is to make them compatible with the new site's backend. The recoding of the site should mean that things are less intensive on the server, leading to less crashing. There is also a new Reviews tab on the main menu so you can easily access the latest review.
