    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!
  5. 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!

    Part 2 of 3:

    A distant rumble and a soft rain was a blessing! It brought more scents to life as the rain connected with the warm foliage and at that moment I had it!!! I knew what was missing and what I wanted to capture! More Bamboo, more Wood Tones and a hint of the dampening, cooling stones. I went back and tuned it further to encompass my experience.

    Dividing this message into 2 parts because it's too long:

    Hi Red!

    Yes, I know you're a Red Sky fan. In fact, whenever I wear it I think of you!

    NM for Taka was a true labor of love. Actually, I worked on it day and night for 6 months and my business partner and friend, David, was going to have me committed if I didn't back off on it a bit. I was consumed by the project. I wanted to get it exactly right! I went through 45 iterations and numerous sub-iterations before I struck pay-dirt, so to speak. And yes, I did take a walk over to the Japanese Zen Garden at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for some inspiration. I had my umbrella with me because it felt as if a thunderstorm was brewing on that Sunday in August. I sat there quietly for about and hour with my eyes closed, allowing my nose to "see" the experience of sitting in that lovely place.

    Hahaa ain't it the truth! I could do a better job than damn near all of the SA's I've dealt with. "What are you trying to find? Musky, amber? Well.. I REALLY like Black by Kenneth Cole.. it smells so good" I'm happy I'm not the only one about L'Homme!! It seems everyone mentions so many YSL scents and how good they are.. but not that one That scent sounds right up my alley! I've been trying to find a smokey scent just to get a feel of how it would be.. and yes! Anise is definitely something I try and stay away from.. I just don't like it at all haha

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

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
