I think in the Perfume post I may have inadvertently made the perfume spreadsheet sound more intriguing than it is. It is a spreadsheet. On which I keep track of what I think of various perfumes I try. Here is a screenshot sample:
All the perfumes in this section are L'Artisan so it doesn't say so in each box; a section below has non-L'Artisan perfumes, each with its brand.
The "category" section (fresh, spices, bouquets and single flowers, etc.) comes from the early days of the spreadsheet, when I was getting my list of perfumes from a site that categorized each scent that way; any perfume added since then doesn't have a category.
I use this in part to keep myself from accidentally ordering the same samples again and again ("Oh, yeah, this is the one I always think SOUNDS like I'd love it, but it's no good on me"), and so that I'll have a list ready of the ones I still need to try (I order from Luscious Cargo, and they let you choose 5 free samples with each order).
Also, perfume is something I'm interested in intermittently, so this helps me pick up where I left off the last time.
Also-also, I like to put perfume on my wish list, so this helps me prioritize which one to ask for: I might remember only that I liked both Fou d'Absinthe and Mimosa Pour Moi, and the spreadsheet tells me which one I'd rather have and which one can wait.
