  1. Dissapointed! Black Oud

    Got a sample of Montale's "Black Oud". I really like the oud essential oil (paste) that I have, have really loved my agarwood incense, so I was hoping for a really oud-y frag. Unfortunately for me, I can only detect a whiff of oud in the first seconds, then it's just a dark, heavy rose for me. Not that I dislike rose, on the contrary, I love rose - but as stated in another review, I can get rose anywhere. Heck, I can dilute some rose EO and just wear that. I wanted more oud! (stamps feet) ...

  2. Upcoming trip ... leaving smelly friends behind :(

    Don't get me wrong, I'll miss my loved ones too. But this is my frag blog.

    Tomorrow I'm flying down south for a week to visit some long lost family. (Dad, stepmom, half silblings, nieces and nephews, and a grandmother!) :bounce: I'm only bringing one carry on bag to save time, money, and space. SO, I'm leaving my collection behind for a whooole week. It will be the longest I've been without them. Lots of firsts! First time flying, first time meeting these relatives, and first scent ...

  4. Your Life is Supposed to Flash before Your Eyes

    Some say your life is supposed to flash before your eyes when it's your time. Thinking about that makes me wonder how it would feel to have your life flash before your "nose." Decades from now, when I am old and gray, and looking back at all of the things I loved about my life, I want to also remember the scents which marked those moments.

    As my mind searches back, I remember when I was in elementary school and the after-dinner random trips to the drugstore with my parents. ...

  5. My Childhood In A Bottle

    So being on BN for a month has really made me think about where I became so enamored with perfumes and it had its origins in soaps, When I was starting around 5 I would collect soaps...different shapes...different designs...different fragrances...very odd childhood hobby I guess. I did eventually grow out of it. When I was about 9 there was a line of cosmetics for kids called Tinkerbell Cosmetics (no Disney affiliation) I really enjoyed them but the perfume wasn't the best ...

Loving perfume on the Internet since 2000
