I have a fairly uneducated nose. Growing up, our selections were limited due to my mother's extreme allergies and sensitive nose. And then I hit 20 and decided to slather myself in things that smelled directly from the headshop. And now, I'm older, and have been sampling things like Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for a while and would like to try my hand at scent blending.
I've been doing some research for a historical recreational group I belong to about perfumes in the middle ages, and decided to educate my nose about modern scents as well. This is how I found the forum.
I do remember that when I was 13, I got a bottle of New West as a gift from someone. I loved it. My mother claimed she could smell when I was thinking about it. I'm wondering if there are smell-a-likes or more sophisticated scents along the same lines. . .since one of the first pages I read on the site was a petition to bring it back. Hehe.
