I am taking the liberty of responding to your message - 7 months late. I hope you will accept my apologies. I joined Basenotes early in the year to knock off a few preliminary questions. After I received the answers, I left the group. I just returned - I realized that I had more to learn. While I enjoy fragrances & cologne, I just do not have enough occasions to wear them - I live in a small town out in the sticks. If I lived in Williamsville or the downtown district, it might be different. Again, thanks for your note and I hope you have a 'livable' winter.
