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.

  1. Anosmia by the Elements: Air and Water

    Man without a nose (from the Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493)

    If you think back to grade school, you will almost certainly remember the question. You were studying the senses of the human body. You had just learned what you already knew - that you had 5 basic senses: vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. The "sixth sense" was not yet a movie. ...
  2. Quality of Ingredients - A Lesson Learned

    You've probably heard the line – from nearly every fragrance house. You know the one – how they go to some sort of extreme trouble to secure the "highest quality" of ingredients. After a while, it's easy to become skeptical. Frankly, I got to the point of thinking it was all a lie. When I heard the tired mantra of how Creed & Creed were "working hard" to get the finest of ingredients, I was rolling my eyes – and laughing at the idea of Creed the Younger yachting from ...

    Climber's Delight - Neil Morris Red Sky

    I always believe my nose, but sometimes I just don't believe my brain. You've probably had the same experience. You smell something, and you know damn well what you smell. You just aren't sure if you trust yourself as to what it smells like. I just had that experience with a new scent from Neil Morris. And - to be sure - it was one of the ...

  5. Five Rounds Of .38 Morris Wildcats

    Recently, Neil Morris Fragrances posted an offer on Basenotes for 15% off on major frag bottles, through mid-August. Based on both glowing and sketchy reviews, I decided to order 5 samples and see how they fared on paper and skin. My samples arrived - nice spray jobs that look to be about .38 caliber, and long enough to be classified as some kind of wildcat magnum. After smelling them, I would say that's about right. Powerful and fun to shoot, but never a sure bet for mass commercialization. ...
