  1. V&R Antidote - Sovereign Specific

    (Original post here.)

    One of the more ubiquitous sights on Basenotes is a thread to the effect of “Given what I already have, what else do you all recommend I get?” I just commented on one of them a few minutes ago, and I’m responsible for three or four of them myself. One of them had several people suggest Antidote by Viktor & Rolf, the same perfumers that make the ladies’ hit Flowerbomb. Now, these recommendations were from members whose opinions I value quite highly, so I ...

  2. Things to do

    Sometimes it seems all I do is write lists. Then rewrite them. Then write them somewhere else. In my filofax. In a pad. On my Mac.

    Then there are lists that aren't lists really. Like all the starred emails in gmail. Like the folders (both real and computer-based) that are full of stuff to add to the directory.

    I can't seem to get organized. I've tried various apps to help (see Things, Remember the Milk, Omnifocus, Toodledo, the much-missed I Want Sandy - and so many ...

  4. A conspiracy from outer space. Also, you’re drunk.

    I’ve yet to figure out why, or how, this works, but it’s happened enough times over the past few months that I can only assume the worst. By the worst I of course mean that aliens are remotely turning off the hot water when I decide to wash my hair. EVERY SINGLE TIME! What is that? I can be in the shower 5 seconds or half an hour, whenever I say to myself “Why don’t I wash my hair?” I get a reply from a superior lifeform, observing from the Oort Cloud. Observing as my concern turns to irritation ...

  5. MPG Santal Noble - doubleplusungood

    (Original post here.)

    The experiment had to start somewhere really. The package from Luckyscent arrived and all 14 samples were nice and intact. Not knowing where to start, and not wanting to contaminate the thought process by favoring one right off the bat, I’ve been using a random number generator to decide my fragrances for me out of the samples. The very first one? Santal Noble by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier. This one was initially picked completely on a whim. I remembered hearing ...
