    Default Check out my new blog, "Pour Monsieur"

    I just wanted to let you all know that I've started my own blog, called "Pour Monsieur", which is dedicated entirely to men's fragrances. It's going to cover not only frags marketed to men (even though that will be a big focus), but also scents with no gender designation and some women's fragrances that guys might enjoy wearing. I'll try to cover as many genres of men's frags as I can, but knowing my personal tastes, there's probably going to end up being a big focus on powerhouse and old school styled scents!

    Here's the link, if you're interested in checking it out:

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    Looks good so far! Enjoyed your review of Fracas for Men. Please continue reviewing lesser known frags rather than the popular ones that most people do.

    Bookmarked.

    I gotta say, though, cool as that background may be, it makes the thing really confusing.

    I agree. I find the edges too distracting. It looks a bit confused. I think you should focus readers' attention on the text, not the background.

    I'm glad to get other opinions about the background. I had a feeling the blocked background might make it hard to read. I'll change it.

    I am privately following you with my real name and last name. I will be commenting on those we share in our wardrobes. My only complain is that the background should have hexagons, since aromatic molecules have that shape...

    O come on!!! I am joking!!! Your reviews are excellent and your attitude towards perfume open minded, I certainly appreciate that.

    Congratulations and regards!

    Hey Shamu -

    Truly a great blog - articulate, informative, and a no-nonsense approach to real man's fragrance...I will continue to follow it.

    Cheers, man.
    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    I think your hunch is right. My bet is that it is kaput.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
