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.

    Good Morning!

    I'll make this my shortest blog post ever - and also the longest.

    I was so moved by the beauty and emotional outpouring of my fellow Basenoters who submitted perfume briefs - and so wanting to honor and praise every one of them - that I joined them together into a poem by which I can always remember them.

    ¡Revolución de las Fragancias!


    Old revolutionaries never die. They are just reborn as new ones.

    Oriental Lounge: My Timeless Amber




    Every once in a while, I simply have to do a straight review. I don't like it. I'd much rather write those quasi-semi-pseudo-literary reviews that just plain annoy the hell out of some people. But sometimes I stumble onto something really, really good, and the word must go out. Besides - I have all winter to work on "Hot ...

  4. A Perfumed Last Will and Testament

    A Perfumed Last Will and Testament

    They say that one should never wear perfume to a funeral. Although not wearing a scent does seem like a safe bet, it isn't always the best one. As noted by several of my fellow perfumistas and colognoisseurs, there are funereal occasions - if only a few - when it makes sense to say something with fragrance. Wearing a relative's favorite scent, or an old friend's signature perfume, on their day of final rest, seems incredibly touching to me. Who could ...

    The Corner of 高山 and Fifth Ave


    I rarely buy blind. So when my wife called from New York and asked if I REALLY wanted Neil Morris for Takashimaya, I hesitated. But then I remembered a few things:
