    Default Thanks Basenoters!!

    Hi all,
    So there I was minding my own business, casually investigating essential oils as a new way of bringing some pleasantness into my house, where upon I was apparently slipped "the red pill" and ended up spiraling into a full on obsession with fragrance (of the worn kind in particular) that seems to have no end in sight. I was literally dreaming about fragrances for weeks!

    And while stumbling down the rabbit hole I came across this site and just wanted to express my appreciation to everyone here for all the fantastic information, opinions, reviews, suggestion (etc.), that I've been learning from in the past few months.

    I really had no idea how engaging and enjoyable this whole world of fragrance is. So thanks all,
    Happy Smelling!!

    I was recently looking around to get some takes on this whole fragrance obsession and ran across this great post of Jardanel from the "Does the Quest Ever Stop?" thread a couple years back:

The trick is to take advantage of the re-start by exercising some moderation and not plunging back in by gorging. I've gone through the cycle a few times, and not just with fragrances. All things considered though, our obsession is a fairly harmless one. I mean, it could be vintage cars or speedboats......

    Best wishes,
    J.
    Love it
