  1. DOLCE & GABBANA

    I playfully grabbed a small 4.5ml tester the other day. After a shower, I applied some of it on myself and kept wondering why I couldnít really smell anything.
    Frustrating...
    Essentially, my plans were to surprise my wife. I had meant to subtly inject a new fragrance in the air as I would have sat inconspicuously next to herÖ I nevertheless did so and waited a bit, just to see what results would come out of itÖ

    Nothing!

    Hearing me mumble to myself that ...

  2. Recalling My Humble Beginnings Again

    by , 22nd January 2010 at 06:20 PM (Cologne Chronicles)
    Okay, I'm going to resume my "Testing 1, 2, 3" posts sometime later this week. It's been almost 2 years, so my nose has been fine tuned a bit, well, just more experienced. I just can't quite identify everything I'm smelling besides the fact that it smells like [insert fragrance here] or if it smells good or not. Anyway...

    Something about rained-in January evenings triggers that "must smell new and amazing things" thing in me. And here I'd thought I'd gotten tired of this hobby! Oh me of little faith.

    Am now on a gourmand kick, which is a little dismaying since like a true hipster nerd I scoffed at this category for being too ~eager to please~. This is a huge category with many subcategories, so I look forward to exploring. Just sprayed some Fresh Cannabis Santal on my forearms. Ha! ...

  5. CK Escape

    Itís amusing because, with all this, Iím thrown back almost twenty years in the past. Back then, I bought a box of four 15 ml CK bottles. Knowing CK Obsession to be wonderful, I bought this set to try others of the same house. I tried Escape for the first time after I had run out of Obsession, One and Eternity. Left with the last 15ml bottle of the set and unable to find any more of Eternity, I gave it a try in hopes of discovering a fragrance that would bring some changes to my mood. Like most ...
