  1. What i have to share.....

    by , 4th September 2012 at 09:52 AM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    May not interest many intelligent noses here, and i feel as though some may read me, and view me as uninspired, uneducated, amateurish, a bit of a fragrance redneck. But at the same time, that may just be the way i feel, and i am guilty of projecting my feelings of fragrance inadequacy onto others here.

    What i do not lack, is enthusiasm. I don't feel, that to be a member of Basenotes, i need to possess some sort of College Degree, to enable me to appreciate an aroma, and state my ...

  2. Fragrance of a salmon.......

    by , 3rd September 2012 at 09:45 AM (Scented Thoughts and Experiences)
    I have just returned today, from my fishing trip.

    I had withdrawal symptoms caused by a fragrance-free week. I should maybe qualify that statement; i have suffered a week of nostril assault, brought about by rotting pink salmon carcasses, and chopped bait herring, both are thick, cloying, greasy and clinging aromas, that drape and cloak every fiber of clothing, and body. Saying that i stunk, barely begins to describe my week.

    My pathetic spray atomisers that I took ...

  3. Essenza

    Like Swedish death metal or Byzantine icons, cologne is essentially a narrow and conservative form. That makes genius within the genre all the more impressive: as the smaller details are the only really variable elements, they have to carry the composition.

    Some weeks ago I tried some Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza in a store, and it seemed impossible that any fragrance could lift my spirits so suddenly and decisively. Pure transport and unlike anything I had ever smelled before. ...

  4. Suggestions II

    I mentioned before my desire for a "fall urban pastoral," something cool, smoky, citified, and fundamentally unsweet. This quest has led me over the last few weeks to various odd beasts and not-so-near-misses, but has also generated a number of thoughtful proposals. One of the most promising of these came in the form of Nostalgia by Santa Maria Novella, whose enthusiasts claimed for it a power to transport the wearer to Le Mans in the summer of 1972.

  5. Signature scents: worth it or not?

    So it's a controversial topic everyone has their own opinion on this and all are valid. In my opinion as a young collector of fragrances and a student I don't always have a pocket full of cash lol so I can't afford to deplete and replenish every bottle I have in my collection, at least not yet . So at the moment I just pick and mix different fragrances from my arsenal as and when I please but recently I considered a signature scent. I then came to the conclusion that it was a good idea for ...
