    Hi basenoters I am a new to the forums although I quite frequently visited the site for advice and opinions on fragrances.

  2. The Persistence of Memory and a Visit from Kerosene

    by , 28th October 2012 at 02:40 AM (Krak des Chevaliers)
    I've recently repurchased the three fragrances that made up my steady rotation in high school and college, just to see how much they've changed (and how much I have, for that matter). Drakkar Noir and Grey Flannel were thoroughly pleasant reintroductions. Calvin by Calvin Klein, however, turned out a grave disappointment--even allowing for the distortions of hindsight, I have difficulty believing that the drear contents of this little blue bottle are the same as they were in 1981.

  3. How to apply a fragrance

  5. Buying samples

    by , 14th October 2012 at 05:50 PM (Possum-Pie's making sense of scents)
    The best way to test fragrances for likability, longevity, and projection is to get samples. Most department stores have stopped giving out samples, but you can test the fragrances there in the store. REMEMBER, a fragrance will not smell the same on a test paper as it will on your skin.

For Niche house samples, the easiest ways to try is to buy samples from THe Perfumed Court, or ...
