Oh, wow, I totally missed free-for-alls all through September and October. I'm so sorry! If you ever notice it's been a week since the last free-for-all, you should feel free to just grab the text and post it -- I won't feel like my toes have been stepped on, I'll be glad somebody remembered when I didn't.

Yay, the last backordered scent from my BPAL decant circle is out for delivery with the mailman! (I need to write up a step-by-step guide to everything I did this time around that made it sooooo much easier than last, in case it might be useful for others in the future.)

Welcome to [community profile] smellsgood! Please read the community rules in the profile.

I have a good idea for the tagging scheme that I will start to implement as we get posts in the comm, so for now the ability to create tags is set to admins-only. I also want to do a post about common vocabulary items and the like for people who are newer to the perfume world.

My background also comes entirely from the essential oils and perfume oils end of things: I worked in an apothecary for a few years during the summers when I was a teenager and young adult, and got to both smell a lot of things and play around with how various oils blended. Then I ignored scent for a long time, with the exception of a few BPAL oils I got from other people, and thanks to [personal profile] rydra_wong's curation of perfume discussions on DW, have recently gotten back into things with a vengeance -- mostly BPAL again. So, I'm nearly entirely ignorant of the mainstream perfume world, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about those perfumes here! Pretty much everything goes.

To start off some discussion: what are you wearing today? I am wearing BPAL's "413 US 15 / Miller vs California", usually shorthanded as "obscenity caselaw" (as in, "you smell like obscenity caselaw today!" or "The cat smells like obscenity caselaw, did she rub up against you?"): "Leather, cognac, fig, ripe berry, and cream, stuffed into a plain brown paper bag." It's a limited-edition scent from 2009, and I am heartbroken that I'll never be able to get another freshly-made bottle. About a month or so ago, one of the ingredients turned a touch sour-vinegar due to age (I think it's the 'cream' note) -- fortunately, the sourness in the bottle dissipates once it's on my skin, and the overall effect is still very nice on me, but it's no longer as long-lasting on my skin (which eats oils and scents like whoa) and the "chords" of the perfume have morphed so that the notes shake out differently as they wear. Not in a bad way, but I miss the old version already.

How about you?
