Thread: Pre-Basenotes era
Since my mid 20s I have been mildly interested in fragrances. I always had something around. Before I moved to NYC, I would go to the City some weekends and sometimes I would look for fragrances,. I remember when I first ran into Jean LaPorte fragrances at Bloomindales. That was something of a revelation. I tried one of his (can't remember now which one it was) and I didn't buy it the first time, but couldn't get it out of my mind, and had to go back the next weekend to get it. I knew that that was ridiculous, but I had to go all the way back into NYC and get it. So, the germ of the oak that became my basenotes.com dependency was there for over 20 years prior to finding this place.
