Proof that I'm a nutjob.

So this lists the scents that I have tried and would be willing to buy in full size. And finds the notes that most commonly appear. I grouped some, like for example "red musk" will show up under "musks" and suchlike. The system needs some refining - suggestions welcome - but overall It's nice to be able to see clearly when things show up more than once.

I'd like to maybe give some weights - a 2 when something is clearly the reason I like the whole package, stuff like that. I could put in a -1 if it's something I have really disliked in other scents, and I could add ALL the oils and notes I have tried and weigh ALL their notes. But I probably won't - this wasted enough of my precious time. The silliest part is that it didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know - just helped reinforce. :)

I think thats a very cool list...do you make perfumes?

Alas, I do nothing quite so cool. This is a list of samples I have collected and tried from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab that I liked. There are so very many that it's near impossible to keep track of. :)

At the store, we had a really cool color coded system - I'll show it to you next time I'm in Baltimore. We have to go for Crabs again, as soon as I'm better (unless I, like die, first)


And you are such a spreadsheet ho!

I definitely look forward to crabs and hearing about your color coded system. The crabs from the ocean, dammit! ;)

I will see you then. :D

All musks are not created equal . . .
At least not for me. I LOVE white/pale/crystal musks. Stuff like Night's Pavilion, Dorian, etc. Black musk is hit or miss; dark musk, as in Bewitched, USUALLY a winner, and red musk . . .

Red musk usually turns into the raving stink on me. :(

And don't get me started on the rose conundrum . . . ;)

Re: All musks are not created equal . . .
I do try to differentiate the musks - not necessarily in number but on the actual excel spreadsheet you can see pop ups that tell what kind of musk it is. Fortunately for me, I haven't met a musk I didn't like yet. :)

I found while I was doing this that there were notes called "geranium rose" and "rose geranium". I was like, really guys? Meh!
