    Default Where is the best place to learn about new releases?

    I know people read all over the net but I've not wandered far from BN. I wonder if some of you could share your favorite places to learn of what will be released, what is newly released, etc.

    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 don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I feel really stupid. I just googled "The Actual House Website". To be fair though, you capitalized each word and I'm sleep deprived.

    Now Smell This is very much on top of new releases, both designer and niche.

    The places mentioned are the ones I visit in addition to BN. BN might not be the quickest to report new releases but I think it has many other superior features that make it my Number One go-to site.

    Fragantica hands down.

    LOL, I'll admit I had to think on this for a moment as well.

    Thanks everyone!

    Absolutely. Have to admit, I added so many to my collection due to the heads up given by very astute Basenoters.

    Facebook is a good place for info about new releases. If you like a perfume brand's FB page, you will get info on their latest releases in your FB news feed.
    Also, the blogs Grain de Musc, Kafkaesque & The Black Narcissus are good for new releases. The Black Narcissus has just reviewed Penhaligon's Tralala, a few month's in advance of it's official release.

    If you are familiar with Flipboard I recently started there an magazine named ,,Fragrance World - perfume news, reviews, interviews and other related with scent,, and a big part of it is dedicated to new releases.
    If you have a phone with Android, Windows or an Iphone you can instal the app and subscribe to magazine or you can do the same on tablet or laptop.
