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.

    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 by their unspoken respect for each other. I'm not sure if they ever actually ...

    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.


    Having sampled Bleu de Chanel in stores - about a dozen times or so - I had been left in the curious state of finding the fragrance enjoyable, yet maddeningly inscrutable. ...

  3. What Fragrance Cometh?

    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. It was too big to put here (twice Grant's limit), so I had to put it on my other blog.

    I refer to every brief, although ...

    ¡Revolución de las Fragancias!

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

    This communiqué was intercepted recently in wardrobe-space. Rest assured that it is being investigated as we speak, and that the subversive perpetrators shall be brought to justice!

    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 Amber & The Lumberyard Time Machine".

    Technically, ...
