They say activation energy is the hardest part of starting almost any task; mine being the inertia for this blog. I want to introduce myself, first and foremost, and why I'm here babbling about perfume and somewhat related topics.

My name is Wesley, I'm a 30 year old male American raised in the south, I'm an engineer, and I'm obsessed with fragrance. It started around 13 thanks to my grandmother, and now it's become more than a hobby. I have a moderate sized "wardrobe" (<100 bottles) but I've smelled hundreds more and have a decent stockpile of samples. My ancillary interests in cooking and fine wine have been synergistic to my insatiable pleasure I get from my sense of smell. I've read a few books on perfume, I frequent Basenotes.net, and I spend an unhealthy amount of time deciding what to wear.

I'll be posting periodically about perfumes I love, recommend, and dislike. I'll also throw in some design and fashion for good measure. Whatever inspires me, really. I hope you enjoy.
