    I just have to tell you that I really enjoy all your reviews. I love how you incorporate scents and fragrance into some aspect of your life. I can really associate to your descriptions and world that you create. Thank you for all the great reviews and keep them coming.

    Thanks for your excellent review on Chaldee- your impression put into words what was simply an amorphous olfactory delight for me. I am lucky enough to be getting a bottle of parfum from the Ma Collection, lmk if you would like a sample.

The Novice Nose: Is There A Difference Between Action and Words?

by Somerville Metro Man on 13th July 2008 at 09:10 PM
As I’ve said in the past one of the reasons I’m doing SotW is to see whether the actions of the community match up to the words on the forums. Over the last couple of weeks there have been three opportunities for me to check whether our words as a community match our actions in what we wear.
The first is this thread around Acqua di Parma Colonias
http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=211984
Throughout this thread there is a debate about which Colonia is best. There

The Novice Nose: Samples Month Part II

by Somerville Metro Man on 7th July 2008 at 03:16 AM
For the month of June I decided to wear nothing but samples. As there were a couple of days off for SSD’s I decided to extend it until July 5th so there would be 29 scents sampled in all. In Part I the first 13 scents were discussed and now in Part II the remaining 16.
Guerlain Jicky---Made for a man but loved by women especially the women of Basenotes. I’ve been dying to try this since noticing that this is the ladies’ equivalent to Terre D’Hermes as far as how many of them wear it. ScentMother

The Novice Nose: Samples Month Part I

by Somerville Metro Man on 30th June 2008 at 04:29 AM
Once again the confounded servers and the specter of work keep me from posting to the blog in a regular manner. I’ve been spending the month of June going through a bunch of samples to see if there was anything I wanted to try more of. In this post I’m going to go through the scents I tried in the first half of the month and next week I’ll return with the scents from the second half.
Jo Malone Mandarin, Basil and Lime---After loving Black Vetyver Café and not having longevity issues with

The Novice Nose: Style Remains

by Somerville Metro Man on 8th June 2008 at 05:40 PM
"Fashion dies, style remains"
Words spoken by Yves St. Laurent and quoted many times this past week on the occasion of his death at 71. His death has caused me to reflect on where style began, for me. It began in the mid 70's as I moved through high school. It began as I wanted to look good for my own self-confidence as well as to attract girls. It began as I looked at GQ for the first time and thought, I want to look like that. It began when I bought my first pair of tailored pants

The Novice Nose: Jicky and The 8th Annual Basenotes Awards

by Somerville Metro Man on 2nd June 2008 at 03:07 AM
Tonight we observe a mysterious event I call “The Jicky Affair”. I, like many other Basenoters, was looking forward to the release of the 8th Annual Basenotes Awards. Not only was I curious to see the winners but it would signal the end of Grant’s long nightmare getting the site re-coded. As I would think about the results, based on my SotW, I expected Terre D’Hermes to have a strong showing which it did. Additionally I also expected Guerlain Jicky to do similarly. When the results were released
