    Re: Opium

    I've smelled real opium before, and it was nice. It smelled similar to the artificial grape flavoring that I recall from the 1970s. Sort of like grape Nehi soda. I'm not sure why, but that's the...
  2. Re: Petitgrain, the natural that ruins everything

    Did you try adding benzoin? I like your description- those big wet woody stomping feet! Hahaha. Try grounding it with the benzoin, then warming it with a bit of nutmeg. Something floral & citrus...

  9. Re: What would Mad Men`s Don Draper wear?

    Old Spice seems most reasonable to me- just something simple and classic, you know, like English Leather, maybe Pinaud's Clubman. But later, as he gets more wealthy, maybe Aqua di Parma, Aramis, or...
