  1. An Applied "Philosophy" for Fragrance, including tips and lessons I've learnt along the way. Part 1.

    I have finally discovered the blog section after two years of basenotes membership. Given my predilection for long-form posting this feels like a belated match made in heaven. I have enjoyed writing discursive essay-style topics in the discussion section of this website yet a blog seems a far more natural setting for these posts.

    With that in mind, it seems sensible to start at the start: a beginner's guide to modern perfumery that is in no way just for beginners. At the start of ...
  2. The ultimate way to increase fragrance performance.

    While I'm sure this has been done before, I don't think I've seen any discussion on it. To me, this was so life changing for fragrances in my collection, and improving the performance so much, that it possessed me to write a blog about it.

  4. MIA Fragrance Review: Beau de Jour by Tom Ford (2020)

    Not a lot has changed between the release of Tom Ford Beau de Jour (2019) as part of the private blend line and Tom Ford Beau de Jour (2020) from the signature range, but the tweak is worth mentioning.
