    Part 1/7

    "The bottle is seriously heavy, like the debt of honor owed to the person giving you this".... Really ?

    I'm just wondered in stumbling on a website in search of a fragrance (you guessed it; Lagerfeld Classic) to find reviews of fragrances that.... I mean..., I came looking without any expectations, if anything were to be, obviously it'd be information about the scent I just looked up. It delivers alright, on various levels and in multiple ways: coming from no review-just listed notes to a general review, a "this is what happened" description all the way to a story, apparently. I remember the first time I voluntarily read a book, "Papillon" by Henry Charriere, for some reason I started reading the first page and before I knew it I was at chapter whatever. Well written story, at least then, to me. At some point I decided I didn't want to read novels nor autobiographies.... Any book.

    Part 2/7

    Nowadays I find myself reading reviews on coffee somewhere or fragrances on Basenotes. Finding info on a selected fragrance reading various reviews is easy here, I no longer necessarily read these to gain insight, since I have found my top three male fragrances (+ reserves) and am no longer on that quest. Finding reviews that are, besides informative, entertaining and easy to read was not a quest; the first review I read was by this reviewer, later other reviewers followed. I read these primarily for fun. From a readers view I suppose: they're there, for some just to read for most to get an impression. Thanks to all reviewers.

    So ! Have you ever read a review by this man ? He opens with a nice intro (out of the ones I've read; first page "Papillon"'s mostly), carries the readers through background/history, enough to keep it comfortable and enjoyable.

Perfume: What Comes Next?

by Zealot Crusader on 13th December 2018 at 10:42 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 08:31 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 10:38 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 11:15 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.
