    Exclamation It Is Nice To Be The Center Of Attention.

    I thought I would relate a true story of how fragrance has affected not only my life, but those who are my friends and acquaintances. I have classes at college four days a week and it has become expected now that when I arrive at the student union that I wear a different fragrance each day. Each day is like an episode of "Cheers" when Normie shows up at the bar. I arrive and the whole table of friends and acquaintances have to smell my fragrance. They know I an heavily into fragrance and have found a venue for discussing the topic each day based on the fragrance I am wearing. I really enjoy the experience of people looking forward to each mornings fragrance experience and discussion, and it is an ego boost as well. It takes a little getting used to having multiple people sniffing you, but pleasant it is.

    Nikola, that's awesome to hear - it's a lot of fun when friends show interest in this hobby; I know that whenever I hang out with friends they'll ask me what I'm wearing and sometimes I'll get "OOH! I remember that one!" or something along those lines.

    Very cool. My experience has been that you'll eventually run into other fragrance fans, and then you can happily go off on fragrance tangents together. Just my experience, though. Might be because all my best friends are artists - a very fragrance-friendly crowd.

    I think there are more fragrances fans out there than any of us realize. It just takes a little putting it out there first if you want to find them.

    Good for you, N_Tesla!

    I experienced something like the reverse of this, last weekend. I went to the mall, without wearing any fragrance, so that I could test as much as possible. I was amazed at all the scent I was experiencing. All the men and women wearing fragrance.... all the stores pumping out fragrance.... even the foods and restaurants and snack shops. It seemed like a LOT of people were wearing fragrances, and they weren't that shy of fragrances, either. It reminded me of what Hedonist was saying about the way that everybody is a perfumista in his part of the world - it seemed like there might be hope for fragrance here in my neck of the woods!

    Thats really nice Nikola.

    You've managed to turn something that usually ends in you explaining that its not a waste of time and that people have different passions into something that people choose to discuss and appreciate.

    Now the main question is, have you thought about spraying strategic locations on your body

    Nice one. It's great when other people appreciate something you love. We might get a few more basenoters out of it!!!

    How lovely to have found a group who are interested & happy to discuss fragrance in the "real" world, lucky you!

    My congratulations, maybe - even if it sounds like wishful thinking - you might have even found some new, prospective Basenoters or even meet up on such occasions existing Basenoters

    I have a group of people like that at my work. It helps me because i tend not to initiate conversations with other people.
