    Great article. But does he really have to tell everybody?

    Thanks for posting.

    "...if you are unsure which scent to wear, then something that has lasted more than 50 years is a safe bet"
    I think this is a wise advice, I'll try to remember when I don't know what to wear!
    Thanks for posting this gem.

    Didn't realize "Mousoir de Monsieur" had been discontinued and re-issued. Also think it is interesting that Chanel's "Pour Monsieur" wasn't mentioned. Nor was the aforementioned "Mousoir de Monsieur".

    we , basenoters, have to show the understanding of perfumes - not to wear these fruity ones, but classics - perfumes of the past

    look up anything that interests you on google or yahoo and click on images. You may notice that safe search is on by default so that the little kids arent telling their parents "what the hell that is". Turn off safe search or whatever they call it. I think basenotes is doing the resize automatically otherwise........... you have photoshop!!!

    What does CoTHukoB stand for? I've never used the every other letters is caps thing.

    thank you everyone for the kind words

    nice avatar Pluran. I got stuck for a moment.

    The answer is here: http://community.basenotes.net/showt...178968&page=16

    If one gets creative, it's actually possible to write cyrillic on a latin keyboard, it just involves the use of caps.

    PS: Great article, by the way; keeping this bumped a while might serve a purpose.
