Hello Jonty, I lurked around for a long time too before I plucked up the courage to join in. I have been into fragrance for around the same time as you and it has been a long and loyal love affair, but it is only in fairly recent years that I realised that it was actually a hobby, a serious hobby, and of course that gave me licence to spend more time and money on it! Ha ha. I loved your introduction. I think that you will enjoy it here. There is so much to be learned. Nice to see you,
