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.

  3. Terre Incognito (Part One)

    If you've been visiting over on the ladies' board, you may be aware of a thread called the Note Identification Project. A group of us Basenoters purchased a variety of natural and synthetic components used in fine fragrances. We've been using them to learn how to identify the notes in perfumes. We're also mixing them up in all kinds of combinations, hoping to learn how our notes combine to give accords and full fragrances. The latter effort, entitled the "Clueless Perfumery", has been ...
