Our usual open thread routine: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume you almost wore but didn't, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked a question that you can answer... Note: image is The grevillea is...

Before we begin today's poll, a couple quick pieces of business. First, no posts tomorrow or Monday. (Happy 4th of July to everyone who is celebrating!) We'll be back on Tuesday, and the 2nd quarter damage poll will be coming up on Thursday, so dig out all those receipts. Today, the usual...

Poland celebrates Mother's Day tomorrow. I bought Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil as a present for my Mommy. I hope she'll like it

SOTD: R'Oud Elements (Kerosene) Tried Clive Christian V last weekend in Nieman Marcus, the opening seemed a lot like R'Oud Elements but quickly diverted. I wish I had asked for a sample or small decant so that I could wear it a few more times, but from what I remember it was lovely. The ending...

The usual routine for an open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume wish you'd stocked up on before it disappeared, the latest bad reformulation you discovered, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance, then see if anyone else has asked...

There's a life with no lemmings! Maybe I have been too sample-crazy and just completely sent my nose and tastes floating around with no compass or a map? Anyway, I've been thinking about Bois des Iles Cuir de Russie #5 Coco Chant d'Aromes Liu and Vol de Nuit (of course) Some other contenders...

That's right, it was cinnamon bun day in Sweden yesterday. Never too late to celebrate! Meantime, we're doing our same old open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume you wore the most in the last week, the perfume that smelled great on...

co/t6ANZ4tW Finally added a tag index. I think I wrote that on my to do list in 2009. http://t.co/3bzLIrlk Once again, 1/2way thru writing before I realize I've already announced this scent. Ha. They really do all sound the same.
