The Hypnotic Pull: How January Scent Project's New Perfume Horla was Made

It was no surprise that when I recently sat down with my friend John Biebel, our conversation flowed through so much more than perfume. John's voracious curiosity pulls him into many pursuits: an advanced career in UX design, painting, scouring antique books, collecting pottery and sculpture, writing and editing here on Fragrantica, and, of course, founding January Scent Project. His latest perfu... Read full article: The Hypnotic Pull: How January Scent Project's New Perfume Horla was Made fr...

Curiosity Goals

Maybe you have some goals for accomplishments you’d like to experience and enjoy. That’s great. Just be aware that you can also set goals for outcomes and experiences that you don’t even know if you’ll like. One of my current goals is to be able to walk 80 steps at a normal walking pace while comfortably holding my breath. That’s after exhaling and with only relaxed and shallow nose-breathing beforehand, not while holding in a deep breath. I started working on this goal last week, and current...

How to Test if a Plant Is Edible

Many people, especially outdoorsy types, know the story of Christopher McCandless, as famously told in author Jon Krakauer’s book (and the film of the same name) Into the Wild.  After surviving in the Alaskan wilderness for over 100 days, the rogue adventurer ultimately died in an abandoned bus there. The official cause of McCandless’ death has always been listed as starvation, but Krakauer felt like there was more to the story. In a journal entry a few weeks before he died, McCandless wrote, “...

Fruits For Men: Standout Selections

It may be easy to overlook in a context in which almost all men’s scents today have a fruity element somewhere in the formula (whether it be a sweeter-than-usual citrus top, a juicy core, or a tropical-infused spicy base), but 1 Million had a huge impact on the ubiquity of fruit in men’s perfumery. As the reference “fougeriental” throughout the 2010s, its 2008 blend of lavender-tinged pump...

Wieso regt ihr euch über Marie Kondo, aber nicht über Netflix’ The Home Edit auf?

Putzen und Organisieren sind wie Balsam für die Seele.

4 Ways to Upgrade Your S’mores

Few fall activities are as enjoyable as sitting around a campfire on a cool evening and roasting up marshmallows, either to enjoy on their own or as part of that quintessential campfire dessert: the s’more.  This classic treat has been around for about a century, finding immediate favor with Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops as early as the 1920s. Despite this venerable history, and though I’m a guy who generally respects tradition, I think it’s perfectly fine to toy with its long-standing for...

Now that the temperatures will finally allow it, I am looking at my bottle of Ramon Monegal's Flamenco again, and looking forward to start wearing it.
