    Feel genuinely puzzled about how so many people can get by on a single bottle.

    ...add one more line to this post.


    ...buy fragrances just to prove/discredit bold statements made by other b’noters.

    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.

    When testing fragrances, you find yourself searching for an unscented patch of skin to spray, like a drug addict looking for a vein.

    (l stole that one from a blog post l read somewhere years ago)

    When out in public, you catch yourself doing the "basenotes salute", i.e. surreptitiously lifting your arm to your nose to sniff, & then when you notice other people looking, you pretend you're scratching the opposite shoulder.

    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    This one is too real and I’ve been guilty of both. As a sober former junky, I’m telling you this gives the serotonin hit of the brain’s reward system(like video games and twitter).

    ...when outdoor wind speed is a consideration for if I should go with 1 spray of Kouros to my chest under my shirt or 2 sprays to my neck.

    ...when you have to take your wife to an orthopedic surgeon for a follow to an MRI and you try to remember what it smells like in the office and what you should wear that would standout best.

    ...when you wake up from a dream about a discontinued fragrance and start frantically searching the internet to see a bottle has popped up for sale.

    These are all hypothetical, of course, and not necessarily something that I’ve done.
