  1. I Smell. . . the Beginning of a New Relationship

    I really wasn't thinking about perfume. I was trying to finish my dictations. However, my co-worker was talking away, ". . . blah blah blah. . . perfume sale. . . blah blah blah." If I had ears like a dog, they would have perked up.

    I was waiting for a laboratory result anyway, so I went over to the place she was talking about, where they were holding a perfume sale at work. And that was where I found it. I really wasn't even expecting to find anything I liked. I kind ...

  2. Mystery of Oils...

    I purchased the 'Lisa's Hair Elixer' from the Carol's Daughter line and it's taken me for quite the ride. Initially, I found the peppermint scent so overwhelming that a dime sized amount brushed through my hair cancelled out the scent of ANY perfume I'd sprayed on my wrist. Woah! If not for it's hefty price tag and the fact that my hair feels silky and wonderful I'd have tossed the bottle.

    Then later than night I was brushing my hair before bed and the most wonderful scent was coming ...

  3. Kingdom Replacement 2... DUNE

    Classic Dior - and I was surprised that Dior was a recommendation from anyone who loved Kingdom. None the less I was thrilled when a bottle was gifted to me on behalf of a grandmother who found a bottle of the stuff in the back of her closet and never wears it. Scary that friends are now thinking while grandma is cleaning out her 'too stinky' perfumes, "Hey, I know who might love this!" Anyhoo...

    So, again like Rose 31, it's not that Dune smells anything like Kingdom but ...
  4. 100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 33: The End

    So here we are. 99 suggestions down. Because this has meandered for way longer than I thought it would, I wanted to make an easy-to-read list for my own sake, but Basenotes won't let me post a blog entry that long, so I guess I can't.

    Frankly, Iíve surprised myself. For instance, Iíve never considered Bulgari to be a very notable house, but theyíve made this list three times. Of course, I intentionally avoided getting caught up making a list of the most notable classic feminine ...

  5. 100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 32: Ridiculous Luxury

    Well, here we are. Almost finished. Of course, Iím not enough of a narcissist to actually think anyone is ever going to go out and sample all of these scents just because I wrote a silly blog, but I hope this had made some sort of sense and at least made for an enjoyable way to waste some time. Iíve tried to be educational (well, at least as much as an idiot like me can be) or at least thoughtful. Honestly, most of the serious guys (and ladies!) here have probably tried at least most of these ...
