  2. A little better definition.

    I'm posting all this and the reviews are not even up yet.. gah. Any way, I think what made me want to write in this style would be a mix of not knowing how to break down smells anyway, but also just a different angle.
    Most of the reviews are just what is in the fragrance and a brief analyzing of how the things work together. Which is really great, because at least I learn a little on how things are in cahoots. However, many of the comments are repeats, and say whatever someone else has ...

    I tried to re-upload the directory file to the server today using my new mac, and to my horror all of the diacritical marks were rendered as funny squiggles!

  5. Confessions of a Perfume Dork

    One night right before Christmas, I got online to review the differences and compare the bottles of Lolita Lempicka versus LL Midnight. Why? Because all along, I've had a borderline dorky fascination with perfume, and having bought/received two different bottles over two weeks, both of which I was totally stoked about, I decided to play around on the internets and see what I could see.
