You are now entering Phase 2 ... Please have your passport ready.

by echerub on 4th December 2008 at 02:32 AM
It's been almost 2 years now since my first foray into fragrance. I've gone from my initial, minimalist aspirations ("I just need 1 or 2") to selection-induced mania ("I gotta have 'em all!") and now to a more steady-state equilibrium ("I know what I like. That's all I need."). It's been an interesting journey so far, and I sense that my interest and knowledge is settling into a new phase.

When I bought my first bottle of fragrance, I thought to myself

If Bal a Versailles is Dirty, then I Like Dirty

by echerub on 3rd August 2008 at 06:06 AM
Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles is one of my favorite fragrances. In fact, it and Guerlain Shalimar, are the greatest temptresses in my fragrance wardrobe. I have more "backup" bottles of Bal and Shalimar, always in vintage formulation, than I should ever have if love of fragrances was based on rational thought! Bal and Shalimar are famously rich fragrances targeted at women, but I love them and I think they work fabulously well on me. That makes them my favorite girls in my entire wardrobe...

Show Me What You've Got: Is it all about initial notes?

by echerub on 13th July 2008 at 09:52 PM
We always say that it's not all about the topnotes, and that it's a shame that the general public tends to evaluate fragrances based only on the initial notes they smell at retail counters. It isn't just with fragrances that something like this happens, though. I recently noticed that it also happened when I was on a daytrip and shared my music collection with one of my travel companions.

Some of my absolute favorite tracks are a little more involved. They don't always open with

Am I the hunter or the hunted? (Thinking about EDCs of some of my favorites.)

by echerub on 7th July 2008 at 02:53 AM
Summer can be an odd time for me fragrance-wise. Sure, there are some fragrances in my wardrobe that only show their best in the heat of summer. While they are certainly nice and enjoyable - Creed Original Vetiver, Monsieur Balmain, and Paco Rabanne XS come to mind - there's something I miss from the stronger "cold weather" fragrances. I want something animalic at times. I want something musky on some days. I want something spicy for some occasions.

I think if I wore

Fragrance limits at the new workplace

by echerub on 28th June 2008 at 08:18 PM
The past month has been an interesting experience in terms of fragrances because I've changed to a new day-job with a completely different environment, feel, and in some sense, culture. For the past month, in addition to learning what I need to learn in order to do well with work-related matters, I've also had to try to figure out what the unstated limits are with regards to my choice of fragrances at work.

Things began on a worrisome note. On my first day, I saw on the pixelboard
