Red's Lumberyard

Redneck Perfumisto, a.k.a. Red or RP, is a certified woodaholic who was born in Kansas and never quite left. The Lumberyard, located in a small town with one stoplight and memories of a train station, brings together a group of strange characters who share Red's passion for all things fragrant. Sharing as well the internet connection in the lumberyard laboratory, you never know who's going to post something. At least, that's Red's excuse whenever law enforcement stops by for coffee and explanations.

    I'm kinda feeling the same way about the new/old site. It seems a little bare-bones at first, but I think I'm going to get used to it.

    And it has ...

    I was on a thread here today, when something hit me.

    We were talking about how some very popular men's designer fragrances, much loved at the moment by most of the world, are completely unloved here. These fragrances are nice enough, but they just don't grab anybody's

  3. IFRA's Bad Luck

    .
    Well, if IFRA would have been lucky, you would now be reading one of my most well-argued pieces ever written, in defense of their latest video.

    Unfortunately, the crashing server ate it.

    100% lost in cyberspace. I kid you not.

    Is the universe trying to tell me something? Who knows.....

    However, I intend to rally to the cause one more time. Come back later - for a link to a re-created version!

  4. Flagrance Fashion Faux Pas!



    The Humor of Bad Taste and The Bad Taste of Humor - An Age-Old Dilemma

    Inspired by a forthright discussion with some of the ladies here at Basenotes, two of my favorite characters explore a thorny question of social cohesion versus individual freedom of expression. Two brothers on very different paths in life, but still united by their love of fragrance, and perhaps ...

    .
    .

    Truly, my friends, there is nothing that I will not do in pursuit of the beauty of fragrance. As proof of this fact, I offer you yesterday's glorious adventure in fragrance appreciation, if not also a misadventure in fragrance application.

    BACKGROUND:

    Having sampled Bleu de Chanel in stores - about a dozen times or so - I had been left in the curious ...
