    Thank you for that lovely welcome. Let me assure you it is all about me being clueless in setting up a basenotes blog to allow everyone to post a response. I think I was able to go back, edit my posts, and click something to allow posts. I love feedback, so it is my ineptness at setting the settings. In my defense, they tell me Mercury is in retrograde! I have very little understanding of planets in retrograde. Yet sometimes I get highly confused even though I have mastered computers. Sometimes I just get confused and stuck, and you might as well blame the planets.

    But perfume. I love talking about it. All of the sudden there is clarity, happiness, and light.

    All you guys are my heroes because I learned a lot about perfumes on basenotes when I first got the bug last spring/summer.

    Part of the allure of perfume is not just the juice, but the people who love the juice.

    Very glad to be here.

    Hey Neil. It seems like I'll be getting my hands on a sample of Tiffany For Men soon, I would have passed it by if not for your glowing reviews of it. Quite anxious to try it now, really.

    Actually I have tried CDG 2 Man! I like it, and so when someone said Vetiver 46 was a longer lasting version of CDG 2 Man, I bought it!

    I saw your post on someone's web log about not having tried MKK!! I wish I still had my sample to send you!
  9. Hugs to you ! You know why .......

    Part 3 of 3:

    It was almost perfect. Sometimes creating a new perfume can be so personal - and so lonely. I needed a shoulder to lean on so I called my dear friend and fellow (wonderful) perfumer, Sarah Horowitz in California. I knew she would understand what I was going through and she told me to take a weekend OFF and go down to the Cape with friends. She said: "Don't bring it with you, don't talk about it, put it out of your mind and have some FUN! Then when you come back, sit and meditate on what needs to be done to complete it and do it!" And that's EXACTLY what I did! It worked! Neil Morris For Takashimaya New York was born!!!

    Thanks for asking, Red! I hope this gives you some insight into how it came to be.

    Fragrant Dreams!

Gifts Under The Mass Market Christmas Tree

by Redneck Perfumisto on 27th December 2016 at 10:20 PM

(Image stolen from here.)

As I sit here, next to our Christmas tree, reveling in the smell of my Christmas gift - Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo - I have some very pleasant thoughts.

We were discussing, on this thread, the pricing of niche fragrances - Andy Tauer versus Dusita. Dorje123 opined that it was tough to enter the market now as a new, affordable Henry Ford, and I agree. But it got me thinking. A bit off

No Place Like Home

by Redneck Perfumisto on 30th October 2013 at 03:35 AM

I used to say this about Kansas...

It's a nice place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there.

I'm kinda feeling the same way about the new/old site. It seems a little bare-bones at first, but I think I'm going to get used to it.

Yes, it's a bit primitive. Yes, it's a bit old fashioned. Yes, it's a bit like a trip back to an earlier time.

But it's classic. REALLY classic.

And it has

Vintage His and Hers Gift Set


I was on a thread here today, when something hit me.

We were talking about how some very popular men's designer fragrances, much loved at the moment by most of the world, are completely unloved here. These fragrances are nice enough, but they just don't grab anybody's

IFRA's Bad Luck

by Redneck Perfumisto on 26th June 2011 at 08:58 PM
Well, if IFRA would have been lucky, you would now be reading one of my most well-argued pieces ever written, in defense of their latest video.

Unfortunately, the crashing server ate it.

100% lost in cyberspace. I kid you not.

Is the universe trying to tell me something? Who knows.....

However, I intend to rally to the cause one more time. Come back later - for a link to a re-created version!

Flagrance Fashion Faux Pas!

by Redneck Perfumisto on 7th March 2011 at 02:56 AM

The Humor of Bad Taste and The Bad Taste of Humor - An Age-Old Dilemma

Inspired by a forthright discussion with some of the ladies here at Basenotes, two of my favorite characters explore a thorny question of social cohesion versus individual freedom of expression. Two brothers on very different paths in life, but still united by their love of fragrance, and perhaps
