What: Fragrance Blogs
Why: If you are a scent-a-holic, a comprehensive and dedicated fragrance blog is an absolute must-read. Fragrance blogs are also great when you feel lost in the world of niche fragrances or non-mainstream perfume house concoctions. Considering there are relatively few blogs that are strictly centered on scent, the ones that do exist are quite helpful, offering the latest fragrance news, reviews and commentary. Take Now Smell This, which is in my opinion, the go-to blog for avid perfume fans and noses (or just wannabes). It posts updates on upcoming perfume launches and fragrance reviews, making it the spot for serious scentsters. Also high on my list, especially when I’m looking for in-depth reviews, are Bois de Jasmin and Perfume Smellin’ Things. Both offer a wide selection of reviews on juices not normally found in your local Sephora.
Why Not: If you seldom stray from the department store beauty counters or the local Sephora’s fragrance section, chances are a fragrance blog might be a little too much to handle. Read at your own risk!
