    Default First Post: Hello and Questions

    Hi everyone. This is my first post. Registered here on the recommendation of a few StyleForum members. Really excited to start learning. I have a few questions that I thought I may as well ask here instead of clogging up the beginner's forum:

    - What's the best place to buy from online? I know all forums have certain e-tailers they prefer so I was hoping someone could guide me in the right direction. Google is soooo overwhelming and often not helpful.

    - I recently found and fell in love with a fragrance from Comme des Garcons called Guerilla. A Google search showed that there is, in fact, a basic Guerilla and Guerilla 2. I was hoping I could find info. online to discern the difference between the two as I held off on purchasing it in hopes that I could find it online cheaper (it was kind of expensive at Odin NYC). Also: I couldn't find either scent by searching Basenotes for Comme des Garcons? What does this mean: is it hard to find, so unwanted that nobody owns it and it hasn't been posted or are they just brand new scents?

    - Does Basenotes or a similar site have a guide for finding fragrances that match your needs/makeup? I really know nothing of why certain scents sour on people, and thought maybe I could study up on this.

    Again, thanks for any help you provide. Hopefully my questions aren't overly annoying and/or obvious.

    The two CDG Guerillas are in the Basenotes Directory. Here they are:

    I like to use Scentiments.com for my online shopping. It is extremely inexpensive and they have wonderful service. They deliver on time and with everything in order.

    Like Rockford said, the directory has the links to every fragrance you might possibly thing of lookin for. It is the most vast source of knowledge that I have come across. There are, however, plenty of fragrance blogs like nowsmellthis. I really like that one.

    While you can't search for a fragrance based on your needs you can always ask for advice here. That is the best part of this whole site. There are so many wonderful providers who are quick to offer as much help as is needed.

    Welcome to basenotes!

    I just happened to run across this thread with some good mini reviews of the two Guerillas: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=184495
