Hello Fragrant Friends
...I'm so amazed by some of your thoughts...it clearly shows what skin types do, or don't do, and what people come expecting when they read certain notes... It's *really* interesting to read your notes...I've read notes for years, and when I get a scent in the mail, many times it's not at all what I expected it to be like... I am so amazed that someone got "Bitter Coffee" from Cafe Diem..., especially when others get hardly any coffee, and they get more sweet rolls to it. hmmm...But I must confess that I don't hardly use any vanilla in my scents, *THE* most popular fragrance element used in the World...I feel like this Cadillac Commercial, (Which the clip cuts off the opening question:) "You know what's the world's favorite Ice Cream Flavor?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GTlPQyQ-gY"But if you're in the mood for something tasty, test drive one of these..."I find a sympathetic partner for eschewing filling our lives with Vanilla, in Cadillac, or at least for this one commercial... :-)Hope you all keep smellin' good!

...may be, in the future, the search for real quality among the hundreds of scents, and that indie perfumers can provide that kind of quality. Whether PaulKiler's leitmotiv (the Kilenade) will agree with my skin and personal sensibilities, is to be experienced during the sniffing expedition...
What is the definition of Niche vs. Artisan?
PaulKiler 25.06.2013 | Miscellaneous
...As a Niche Perfumer, I would define "Niche" as filling a gap left unfilled by other more known houses.That niche could and would be quality, as compared to many mass market fragrances. That niche could be adventurousness or ferocity, or artistic gumption, but as for me and my "House" it also means using fantastic and expensive ingredients that make perfumes better, because they ARE better.Mass market fragrances have to make them cheaply, to make the exhorbitant profits. My ideal is the Art of Perfumery, with the best ingredients I can get my grubby little hands on, making what I call "Real Perfumes", because I use all the great stuff that mass market cannot by virtue of those maerials' costliness.Paul KilerPK Perfumes
