  1. Thinking on it

    I have a lot of time at work when slow to think about fragrances and why I wear them. Or why you wear them. Mainly, I wonder why we have so, so many. I am speaking about a lot of us here on basenotes. Our bottle counts are huge. It is so strange. I am going to babble on maybe why I do. Feel free to join in.
