  1. Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3: 03/13/08

    Even if no one really reads this, at least this'll be for my own amusement instead of posting it in my LiveJournal where no one would know what the hell I'm talking about (or rather, just keeping it to myself cuz I'm ashamed to post it for other friends to see :P). Anyhooooo, this is my post on my initial impressions of some scents I've tried in the past couple weeks. Thank you Sephora and Scented Monkey! I'm actually having more fun gathering my plethora of random samples. I'm a very indecisive ...

    Canada Customs has now, for the second time, destroyed a bottle of fragrance that was on its way to me via the postal system. It isn't wholly unexpected, since I know that fragrances are disallowed in the postal system due to Canada Post regulations. Therefore, I know that I take a risk every time a bottle comes to me over the border.

    Cross-border buyers are really caught between a rock and a hard place. The rock, on the one hand, is the postal regulation that considers fragrances ...

  4. Less Is More?

    It's been a few days since I decided to post my first entry on this blog. It's a great way for me to randomly soapbox and nerd out on scents as I please. Since this is the only place where I can publicly express my fascination with colognes. It's very odd how I can be obsessed with random things. I think my friends are slowly starting to learn I do get a little carried away with this stuff. None of them are really into this stuff and own 3 bottles at most, with the exception of one who also registered ...
  5. The One That Started It All

    Well, in my 3 or so months of semi-blind buys, blind buys, and random sampling when I learned my lesson about how to shop for new bottles. It mostly started with semi-blind buys. I would either sniff a magazine insert or a strip of paper. This is entirely different than spraying these scents on your skin, not only that, but wearing it multiple times. First of all, the whole thing started when I decided I wanted to get a cologne. So I went searching around the internet for information. Websites ...
