    Hey JaimeB love your posts and candid opinions about everything. You give to Caesar what is due to him, no extras if they are unwarranted, and I appreciated that. Evaluations that are always honest.

    My buddy is off to Paris tonight, and from all the fla-fla-fla I'm reading about Scent 79, I want the green light from you as to whether it's worth the expense (no sure how much in Europe).

    I love incense, don't remember the original Jil Sander, so what say you.

    Thanks for a reply,
    Mario

    Happy birthday, kiddo!!!!
  6. True, very true. I remember in my youth hearing that advice for the first time in the Disney movie Bambi. Though, I feel that sometimes you need to say something "bad" about something to "warn" others. I try not to be be too nasty in my reviews
  7. Reading your 130+ reviews was a bit of a chore but they're thought out. But one thing I noticed was that you're very easy to please, not one thumbs down! Haha

    Keep writing them reviews.

    Is that Un Parfum de Charmes et Feuilles nice, or what? I almost bought it at the Barneys New York in Beverly Hills on Saturday, but I'm pacing myself. This was actually the only thing from The Different Company that I really seemed to like.
  9. funnyboy,

    I sent you a PM about the Brosseau things you asked about.

    Just been reading about you and your scents.Are you sure you can get away with wearing Ombre Rose as it was one of mylate mother's favorite fragrances and I alwys secretly wanted to try it on myself.Also have you tried any other brosseau fragrances and if so what do you think about Atlas Cedar and the violette et menthe? Your opinion will be valuble to me as I am a new starter.Regards,Mark

Revisiting “Unusual” Sunday Scents

by JaimeB on 29th November 2011 at 07:42 AM
Back in early 2008, I posted about the fact that I had fallen into the habit of wearing some pretty “unusual” scents to choir practice and church on Sundays. For some context on what I'm about to post now, you can read that post here.

Recently, someone who has environmental illness has joined the choir I sing with. Out of respect for this person’s request, I have refrained from using any fragrance on Sundays. This was a sad decision for me, but I wanted to be generous to a person

Now Things Get Serious

by JaimeB on 10th November 2011 at 08:14 AM
In my last post, I indulged myself in a little harmless fun; at least that's what I said. In truth, there was a subtext to my borrowing the Occupy Wall Street metaphor and dressing it up in the issues of perfumista frustration in our own love-hate relationship with the purveyors of our favorite stuff.

The best way to put this is perhaps to say that in many aspects of our life, so many of which are affected by commercial interests, we encounter more and more frustration in a sense

Occupy Perfume Counters (Occupy PC, or OPC)

by JaimeB on 27th October 2011 at 07:46 AM
[Please do not take the initial premise (in the title of this post) seriously. I am just trying to dramatize a situation and make a point.]

Some radical perfumistas are occupying perfume counters across the country, and even the world, because they are frustrated by the trends they see in the perfume industry leading to downgrading the quality of fragrances and pricing their products beyond the reach of “the 99 percent.”

In the meantime, many in the media are pointing

A Response to a Question about Top, Middle, and Base Notes

by JaimeB on 12th October 2011 at 08:23 AM
The question:

i mean, for example, can we have musk, patchouli , sandalwood , clove... on top notes?

or can we have lime , lavender , cinnamon , sage... in the base notes ?

or [are] there some notes that are physically impossible to put in top or base ?
My reply:

Hermès Eau des Merveilles was supposed to have

The Four Worst Factors in Fragrance Today, Part I

by JaimeB on 26th September 2011 at 12:45 AM
In thinking about what is having the worst effect of the fragrance industry today, I was hard pressed to find a single factor that explains all the problems surrounding quality, reformulation, and customer satisfaction. I think that to discuss matters fully, we need to look at four separate, but interrelated issues.

1. Sourcing and cost of raw materials

Over-harvesting of many perfume materials has provoked a situation in which many are at a point of near-extinction. In
