  1. A few things I have noticed about the fragrance hobby.....

    Hello everyone!

    This is my first post on basenotes. To introduce myself, I am a 17 year old guy that has been hooked on to the fragrance hobby for about two years. I have sampled many designer fragrances and a few niche ones as well. I have also been browsing basenotes for a while, and have learned much and have gotten a chance to talk with many fine individuals.

    The other day I found a bottle of Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers for a dollar, which was enough reason for me to buy it.

  5. Smells & Fragrances

    This post is from my blog at

    I have paid attention to the smells around me from a young age. The honeysuckle at the edge where our yard ended and the woods beside my childhood home began; the smell of the grass just after it had been mowed and after a rain; dirt and mud- all these are smells in nature that I carry from childhood. My mother is a very good cook, and many childhood memories are tied to spending time in the kitchen with her and enjoying the aromas of ...
