  1. I Smell. . . Better Together Than Apart

    I've been wearing Montana Parfum d'Homme (red box, not blue box) almost religiously, for the last few weeks, and although I could identify bergamot, pine, and patchouli easily, I had a hard time really saying what it was about this scent that I liked so much that I could wear it for so many days straight!

    Well, not too long ago, someone had given me a sample of Versace Green Jeans to try. The notes from the sample card say this:

  2. I Smell. . . the Rosebuds

    I'm wearing Halston Couture today. It really is lovely to me, and I can't understand why I love it so. With the patchouli, I should hate it. But it's so dark and sharp and lovely. It's a gothic rose. And today I am a chypre gal.

    At the risk of sounding corny, I have to say, it makes me cry it's so pretty. What will I do when it is gone? Even not using it, I can see that it is evaporating.

    Like me.

    Like my youth.

    Even not used, it ...
  3. I Smell. . . On the Cheap

    We've been kind of pinching pennies for about a year now. I say that with the reminder that I've probably spent over $500 on perfume this year alone.

  4. I Smell. . . Evolution

    Thanks to the generosity of other fragrance fanatics, the number of samples I have awaiting my sampling has grown. A lot. This post is just to kind of chronicle how my sample racks have changed. I have no doubt that other ideas could supercede even my current ones, but for now, this is my sample rack history.

    My very first sample rack was a little jewelry box. I don't have a picture of it. It got full. Some samples didn't fit in it well. And they didn't stand upright, which ...
  5. I Smell. . . a Paradigm Shift

    One of my old boyfriends was fond of latching onto certain phrases and finding ways to use them in all our conversations. It was really annoying. One of those phrases that he used a lot was "paradigm shift." I had never heard of paradigm shifts before I met him. (I didn't know how to count in binary on my fingers, either, before I met him.) He explained "paradigm shifts" as a kind of changing world view. One example of a paradigm shift is the shift from the belief that ...
