    Re: Which frags have the worst drydowns?

    +1 Tuscan Leather. I love that fresh burst of leather, but after a few hours I feel and smell "filmy" like I rubbed an ashtray on myself.

    STC is offering a set of all 3 samples for $5.99 today as a daily chance special. They claim they'll shut it down for the day after they sell 20 sets, so I thought these should go to Basenoters (you...
  16. Re: Can the way fragrance interacts with your skin change day to day?

    I'm fairly new to fragrance as well. Speaking from my medical/human body education background, however, I have to join the "absolutely possible!" camp. Many factors influence the makeup of a person's...
