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.

    Dear Acqua di Gi˛




    Dear Acqua,

    I know that we haven't talked in a long time. I wasn't sure I'd ever write to you again. I probably wouldn't have written, except that I ran into somebody yesterday who says he's seeing you now.

    2 M∀NLY!



    (Continued from Part 1)


    "Come in! Please - have a seat. Here - take a lab stool!"

    Seeing only a tacky, vinyl-backed bar stool, we sat our butt in it.

    "And what can I do for you? You look like you could use some Comme des Garšons 2 Man!"

    Taking up his kind offer, I decided that I would ...

  4. Humanity's Next Big Mistake

    I suppose that I should have entitled this something else, but then again, I probably should have posted it under my scientific identity. Although my science blog is also written under a pseudonym, it is more likely to be read by other scientists. However, the ridiculous state of our species is surely reflected by the fact that I'm better off posting about the abuse of science on a board which is primarily read by men who care too much about perfume. At least here, my words are guaranteed to be ...

  5. Learning To Love Guerlain Homme

    Learning To Love Guerlain Homme


    web graphic at www.guerlainhomme.com

    It took me many years to learn to love good wine. My first encounter with wine involved some stolen cold duck. Technically it wasn't stolen, since my high school buddy simply gathered up all the leftovers from a catered party, including a pair of full bottles. It took many years, and a few more ...
