It's time for the weekend poll — Aunt Violet: "What's a weekend?" — and this weekend, we're scenting the cast of Downton Abbey. Scent as many or as few as you like, and please, there is no need for historical accuracy — Julian Fellowes has not been stifled by such considerations, so neither...

The first three questions are poll suggestions from readers, the last two questions cover my own personal concerns — after all, man cannot live by perfume alone. Answer as many or as few as you like. 1. Name a great perfume for a first date. 2. Name a great perfume to wear to church. 3....

Today's poll is about scented functional products: please tell us about a few of your favorite scented products for skin, hair, or house cleaning. Before I list my own favorites, I wanted to mention that Now Smell This has been having some performance issues this week — apologies to anyone...

Apologies for the late start (I have just returned to civilization, or at least, to wifi) but here is our usual open thread poll: talk about anything you like — the perfume you're wearing today, the perfume you wish we (or someone) would review, whatever. Or, ask a question about fragrance,...

Another "used" poll returning by popular demand — this one originally appeared in 2009. The question: name a perfume that you disliked on the first try, loved on a later try. How many tries did it take? And tell us how you decide what will get another chance. Back in 2009, I said that I...

Smells great! I was planning to finally buy Iskander this months and I wanted to split around half a bottle to lower my costs but there's not much interest for the 50 mls I wanted to give away. Now I struggle – should I buy it and keep more juice with me, or should I give up and find some...

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...

Our fourth annual holiday gift poll (see 2008, 2009 & 2010). Here are the three questions: What is the fragrance-related gift you'd most like to receive this year? Let's say you were going to ask for just one unsniffed fragrance this year, what would it be? Are you giving any fragrance...
