    Hi! We don't know each other, but I was just reading some of your Sample of the Day reviews...and I came across your plea for an Eau de Polder sample. They have them now at Lucky Scent. First time I've seen it available in a long time. Just got mine today. It smells just like a Sunday ride (in a convertible with the top down) through quiet farmland on a summer day.

    Rogalal, more great observations. in the sample thread. I love how you sniff all types of scents- from the individual components of scent to the most complex ones. I've also been meaning to comment on your sampling of Yendi. I am one of those people who tracked down and bought a vintage bottle based on glowing reviews for not a huge sum, but I could have bought Chanel or 3 bottles of Ivoire for the same price. The opening is so dang SHARP... so sharp it hurts like a paper cut. I plan to keep a few ml for reference and then hopefully pass it on to one of the cult members- because it is not for me.

    You're making my mouth water with your latest trip to Jacqueline. I could have spent the whole day there at the meet-up.

    You have been going to town with the samples of the day thread lately! Love your detailed impressions.
    I'm so bad at detail- LOL

100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 33: The End

by rogalal on 30th November 2011 at 08:57 PM
So here we are. 99 suggestions down. Because this has meandered for way longer than I thought it would, I wanted to make an easy-to-read list for my own sake, but Basenotes won't let me post a blog entry that long, so I guess I can't.

Frankly, Iíve surprised myself. For instance, Iíve never considered Bulgari to be a very notable house, but theyíve made this list three times. Of course, I intentionally avoided getting caught up making a list of the most notable classic feminine

100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 32: Ridiculous Luxury

Well, here we are. Almost finished. Of course, Iím not enough of a narcissist to actually think anyone is ever going to go out and sample all of these scents just because I wrote a silly blog, but I hope this had made some sort of sense and at least made for an enjoyable way to waste some time. Iíve tried to be educational (well, at least as much as an idiot like me can be) or at least thoughtful. Honestly, most of the serious guys (and ladies!) here have probably tried at least most of these

The Basenotes Darlings Ė Designer Scents

92. A*Men Pure Malt by Theiry Mugler

The malty beer smell of a microbrewery mixed with chocolate, Pure Malt is easily one of the most distinctive and creative scents to come out lately, especially in the ďwoody amberĒ aquatic-obsessed mass market of menís scents. It spawned so many threads on Basenotes that the admins jokingly

Sorry for yet another huge delay, but Iím still hereÖ For those just joining us, Iíve been working on this project, inspired by NowSmellThisís list of 100 Fragrances Every Perfumista Should Try, for a while now. Again, Iím just an amateur with no qualifications, but I thought it would be fun to do something more focused on a masculine point of view. With that, todayís continuation:

100 Fragrances Every Frag-Head Guy Should Try, part 29: Basenotes Darlings - The Classics

by rogalal on 18th November 2011 at 09:15 PM

For anyone just joining me, this rather epic list of 100 scents is inspired by this list from Now Smell This. I wanted to do something similar, but from a masculine perspective. As I keep stating, Iím no expert and I have no qualifications to do this whatsoever. Itís all in fun and I hope that anyone with any suggestions or complaints will take the time to comment.

With that, any discussion of scents here has to include the Basenotes favorites, the often-recommended
