I say, yes, make a thread. I would love, love, love to read it. I'm still dabbling with home perfumery ever since a group of us did a project here. We sampled raw ingredients (and passed them to each other in the mail) and commented on each ingredient in a thread. Search for it in the forum or on Google under Basenotes Note Identification Project. The dialogue carried on for 539 posts from May 2008 until June 2009. I cannot even begin to tell you how may hits it has received, but it certainly was gratifying to have such good readership. We really enjoyed doing it.
The only warning I have is this:
Keep everything on one thread. If you're tempted to break it into different threads, name them with the same main heading followed by a colon and then the subheading.
When our friend Profumo sent out samples of his lovely, natural fragrances from Italy, people who reviewed them created their own posts by different names, and it was hard to locate and consolidate the reviews for each perfume.
So, either make your posts on one thread like a diary, chronologically (like I did) or name each thread by the main heading and then a subheading. For example, My Perfumery Training: Classic Accords, My Perfumery Training: Weights and Measures.
BTW, is there a "follow" option for reading new posts? I don't have as much time as I used to to read the forum, and I'd like to receive notification when you start posting.
