    Re: Chandler Burr Untitled S01E06

    I am throwing in the towel. Maybe Mr Burr's classifications make more sense if you've been to the museum exhibit or read the catalog. I just get frustrated. Here's an example. Mr. Burr calls my...

    Re: Chandler Burr Untitled S01E06

    I've thrown in the towel. In art history, we do "slide comparisons" where we compare and contrast two pieces of art. For me there was always great electricity in this, as you had no idea what the...

    I'm out too. $50 is too spendy for me. I'll just have to listen to what everyone else says.

    I love end of year lists, and am eager to see which fragrances made critics and writers lists for 2012. Off the top of my head, I can say that I liked JM White Lilac & Rhubarb, Chypre Palatin and AA...

    Not sure what you're saying Metro Man. Don't want to rock the boat. Does he want us to wait for him before we have any further chats?

    Thanks for your encouragement. Given that we are in wait mode, I will try to start up an art historical discussion of a particular scent. I was thinking of something with some wintery depth that...

    I need to apologize to the fine people on this board and to Mr. Burr as well. I can be very passionate about the things I love, and that passion makes me unbearable and sour.

    My apologies,

    Well said. The training to be a serious art historian takes about 8 years. A serious art historian needs a BAFA not a BA, so that means abut 30 semester hours of art history, about 18 semester...

    Totally agree about the lack of olfatory education. Also think that art history has an academic tradition and vocabulary that I freely admit I am not objective about. I love the academics of art...

    This is very interesting. I found E05 very difficult to smell. I grew up in a house that had ivy on brick, but did not smell this at all in E05. I smelled cucumber, citrus and salt. I had a...

    Did anyone get a creamy floral about four hours into E05? This is a feminine floral with a really pretty creaminess.

    TIA

    EDIT

    IGNORE PLEASE - accidently mingled two fumes on the same spot.

    You are kind to say so. I love art history so much. When I pass I want my ashes scattered in the art history lecture hall in Popejoy Hall at the U of New Mexico. (kidding)

    I wanted to clarify that JC Ellena is not my guess. He doesn't fit the text as given by Burr. I crossed him off my list because he is the in-house perfumer for Hermes. Burr says that the house in...

    The text from CB uses the pronoun "he" to describe the composer. I think that eliminates Matilde Laurent and Isabelle Doyen.
