    Re: Fragrantica Reviews....

    There are hundreds of thousands of reviews spread across the thousands of perfumes in the Fragrantica database. Consequently, it's largely self-policing. The voting mechanism is supposedly programmed...

    Re: Your Favourite ISO E Super Scents

    I'm not super clear on what isolated IES is like, I know it's supposed to be dry, wood-like, and prone to cause anosmia giving it an elusive quality.

    Re: What is your favorite Guerlain?

    Probably not a popular answer, but oh lawdy, Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune is just wonderful. The juiciest, most delectable grapefruit. I'm not the most educated here, though. I've smelled a...

    Re: Why do you wear cologne?

    Art on the walls, plants in the garden, photos of travels, liqueurs in the cabinet. Perfumes are in that class of things we partake in not because we need them but purely because we enjoy them. Not...

    Re: are alcohol based fragrances safe?

    All matter is made up of chemicals. Carbohydrates, fats, water, oxygen--chemicals. Vague references to chemicals as a mysterious, sickening force really ought to be avoided. It's important to be...
