    You need to back me up on the Guerlain Homme rec on that engineering thread. I know what I'm talking about. Roaster was a good idea, though, I agree.
  2. I actually got the aftershave of Curve today to accompany my cologne, so it's funny you mention that.

    Wow - that's a CURVE price! Très braggable! Good job!

    Awesome! Hope you got a good deal! I was totally into it for about 2 months, and still am, but decided to change up a bit for a few weeks. I love deep-diving on scents like that, but after I get totally serene with it, I'm ready to try new ones. But it will be great in late spring and summer, so looking forward to more. I made a good dent in my bottle. A real love!
  5. Yes. This Enterprise, really is, just Theatre.

Perfume: What Comes Next?

by Zealot Crusader on 13th December 2018 at 09:42 AM
What is coming next in the world of perfume? Where are we headed? Well, in order to understand that we need to look a bit into the past then at current events to figure out what the next moves will likely be! I originally posted this in a thread as a response to the topic question, but then I realized it was so long that nobody was going to read it in full, and decided to copy it over into a blog post instead

This is a several-pronged thing so I'll break it down.

Drugstore, Designer, and Niche: What are the Differences?

by Zealot Crusader on 21st May 2018 at 07:31 AM
Most of us entering the world of perfume as a hobby learn really quickly that not all scents are created equal, and even within the purview of a single fragrance line, there can be differences based on various vintages of the scent, depending on how long it's been in production. It's honestly no wonder that the more pedantic members of our community fastidiously catalog every batch code of a scent (if given), and painstakingly chronicle the differences, with phrases like "Cosmair Era".

You Are What You Wear: The Perils of Perfume Snobbery

by Zealot Crusader on 12th May 2018 at 09:38 PM
My crazy reinvigorated journey into fragrance once again has taught me a lot. For starters, I never knew there was a discernable difference between eau de cologne and eau de toilette, and that eau de toilette concentrée is a fancy way of saying eau de parfum for all intents and purposes at a time when men saw the word "parfum" as inexorably female. I also learned that high-end perfumes don't stop with Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent, but keep going into exclusive ranges, and finally niche

Under Renovation

by Zealot Crusader on 5th January 2018 at 10:15 AM
I found all my previous blog entries to be inaccurate both factually and historically. I should not have undertaken writing such articles without further research and exploration into the subject. Recent discoveries have made it worthwhile just to scrap and re-do them at some point in the future. The last thing I want to do is be seen as a blow-hard idiot.

Thank you for your patience, more blogs coming soon.
