I'm thinking about The Guide right now, as I suppose many Basenoters do from time to time. LT and Tania's seminal book, now a strapping four-year-old and into its second edition, indicated a new way of thinking and writing about fragrance much as (I am indebted to anomie for this insight) Robert Christgau's Village Voice columns fundamentally shifted the grounds of pop music criticism, tightening it, sharpening it, demanding that everything essential fit in one hook-laden paragraph.

I've had a vintage free day today. It's almost unhinged me, frankly.

Do lemme know if any of you has tried it... Would love to know what you feel about this.
Well, i managed to fit in a trip to an antique/thrift store today. Calling it a thrift store is somewhat of a misnomer. It's a log cabin, and like a maze inside.
