    Arden license-producing Azzaro Chrome in the US

    I saw an Azzaro Chrome gift set at CVS today. No big deal to see it at drugstores here, as Chrome is a best-seller locally and throughout the US. And normally, it's produced in France and distributed in the US by Clarins Fragrance Group Hence, I was very surprised to see on the back of the...

    Time for a geezer Youtube channel?

    Hey Guys: I notice that there seems to be an abundance of kids on Youtube that review colognes. Based on what I've seen, they don't really seem to be very helpful. But then again, I guess you gotta give these kids credit for making the effort. Who knows, maybe they are actually helping the...

    Worst bottle flaws?

    What are some of the worst bottle flaws in the industry? Arpege pour Homme - Cap doesn't fit securly. Thierry Mugler - On the rubber flask bottles, they tend to be oozy. John Varvatos - On the original (though not all of them but a good amount) the sprayer oozes. IZOD - Sprayer comes off with...

    Foot-odor: a new unit of measure (funny story)

    Just to show you what an idiot I am, I was watching a re-run of Food Network's "Chopped" (For those who don't know, its a single-elimination cooking competition with a basket full of mystery ingredients). I should preface this by saying that I am a fan and lover of science, and recently the...

    Niche-ish Designer Scents (Current Reformulation)

    I know that similar threads have been made before, but we also know that reformulation is a fact in the industry. So, what designer scents in their current reformulation can easily be labeled as niche (in whatever niche definition you like)?

    The fragrance seen as a business

    Hello BN'ers I was wondering how would it be if you decide to release a brand of your own, to get in the fragrance business. Which are the things that block your entry on the fragrance industry ? - The money, the capital stock - The one that will make the fragrance. How much does it cost to...

    Many thanks and a question; any cantaloupe or unusual florals scents out there?

On me it smells like really good incense, if you can find a vintage edt- totally...

    I recently ordered Hand Book of Perfumes With Formulations from PrintsAsia in NYC. It's a fascinating and inexpensive read for anyone who loves perfumes and is curious about the materials, and potentially useful for DIYers (but the book was written for those in the perfume industry.) The link...

    Basenotes Awards?...

    Does anyone know, will there be a Basenotes Awards edition this year? If yes, when? Grant, can you tell all of us about this? I think everybody is waiting for news! These awards are much more valuable to any perfume aficionado than Fifi Awards or any other so called 'industry awards'. I've been...

    Can high blood sugar levels make your scent smell too sweet?

    I originally posted this idea in Fragrance Industry Discussions, but someone suggested it might get more posts here, so here goes! Diabetics apparently have problems because perfume goes too sweet on them. I read that high blood sugar levels can cause this problem. I have diabetic family members...

    What Would It Take to Fix the Fragrance Industry?

    Here are my ideas for fixing the Fragrance Industry's problems; real and perceived. Number one: Make all fragrances originally formulated prior to 1965 exempt from IFRA restrictions and place a disclaimer on the back of the bottles. Number 2: Return all classic fragrances to their former glory...

    The Needs of the One.

    Due to the constant reformulations and discontinuances I find myself compelled to hoard those fragrance that I can't live without. Just today I received another bottle of Vent Vert (1990 Becker Version) and Beau Cavalier. Am I the only one with this compulsion to preempt the fragrance industry's...

    Is ANYTHING capable of mainstream commercial success?

    To save you a massively long post, I'll try to make it short. Music is perhaps the only thing that I am more into than fragrance. Currently, there are two highly touted emerging artists in my favorite genre that are both sort of competing against each other. Naturally, the fans are essentially...
