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.

    Le Feu d'Issey - Beautiful Loser


    People in the past - such as ourselves - can be wrong about things. It's easy to be wrong. History is filled with instances where good things went unrecognized, or bad things prevailed. Sometimes we recognize good things later, and realize our mistake. Sometimes we don't. When we do recognize good things too late, at least - sometimes - we can ...

  4. Chandler Burr's "High Five" in March GQ

    CB/GQ


    One of the people I'm most thankful for in the fragrance world is Chandler Burr. If you haven't read his fascinating book The Perfect Scent, then you've missed a great read. This book is so compelling, it made me a fan of Hermès and their line of fragrances long before I smelled even a single one. Burr's writing - so wonderful but seemingly so effortless - is simply transformative.

    Well, if you want to take in a small sample of Burr's most practical thoughts ...
