  1. V&R Antidote - Sovereign Specific

    (Original post here.)

    One of the more ubiquitous sights on Basenotes is a thread to the effect of ďGiven what I already have, what else do you all recommend I get?Ē I just commented on one of them a few minutes ago, and Iím responsible for three or four of them myself. One of them had several people suggest Antidote by Viktor & Rolf, the same perfumers that make the ladiesí hit Flowerbomb. Now, these recommendations were from members whose opinions I value quite highly, so I ...

  2. A conspiracy from outer space. Also, youíre drunk.

    Iíve yet to figure out why, or how, this works, but itís happened enough times over the past few months that I can only assume the worst. By the worst I of course mean that aliens are remotely turning off the hot water when I decide to wash my hair. EVERY SINGLE TIME! What is that? I can be in the shower 5 seconds or half an hour, whenever I say to myself ďWhy donít I wash my hair?Ē I get a reply from a superior lifeform, observing from the Oort Cloud. Observing as my concern turns to irritation ...

  3. MPG Santal Noble - doubleplusungood

    (Original post here.)

    The experiment had to start somewhere really. The package from Luckyscent arrived and all 14 samples were nice and intact. Not knowing where to start, and not wanting to contaminate the thought process by favoring one right off the bat, Iíve been using a random number generator to decide my fragrances for me out of the samples. The very first one? Santal Noble by MaÓtre Parfumeur et Gantier. This one was initially picked completely on a whim. I remembered hearing ...

  4. Caesars Man - Nuclear Freaking Deathbomb

    (Original post here.)

    Ah, Caesars Man. You were almost my first online purchase, almost. Especially at $11 for a big olí 4.0 oz bottle. And in your immediate defense, you donít sound all that bad, with notes of Lime, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Amber, and Musk. Imagine my joy when I spot you at the local TJ Maxx. $9.99 for the same 4.0 oz bottle! Iím sold!

    And thatís where it all went wrong.

    Of course, I canít be too much of a prick about this, at $2.50 an ...

  5. Baldessarini Ambrť - Easy Drinkin'

    (Original post here.)

    While Iíll be the first to admit that for the most part Hugo Boss offerings havenít done much for me (Iíll also admit my experience with them is pretty limited), I have yet to find a fragrance in their Baldessarini line that I didnít like. The original Baldessarini (which will be reviewed in the future) was my first experience with fir and pine in a fragrance and is probably partly responsible for my affinity for the notes. Baldessarini Del Mar I just recently ...
