Red’s Ultimate Fragrance Blogroll Post

Emotions-lectriques-1

The time has come to do something useful in this life.  And at this very moment, I am struck by the need for somebody to create a simple travel guide to the world of fragrance.  Something useful to newcomers.  Something that turns fragrance n00bs into sought-after opinions in as short a time as possible.

I have been blessed to know many wonderful people who have written many wonderful things.  However, I’ve never compiled a bibliography of my favorites sources – despite having promised on numerous occasions to do so.

Enough.  The time is now.  And to make sure that this project doesn’t falter, I’m going to put it out immediately, and just add a bit more each day.

Here goes.  Kinda rough, but it’s a start.
