The Buzz

About: A Pioneer Perfume Blog est. 2006 for People Into the Nitty-Gritty of Smells & Tastes as seen in The NY Times, Independent, Vogue, Elle...By Chantal-Hélène Wagner... The Scented Salamander was the first perfume blog to creatively establish editorial and conceptual bridges between fine perfume, food, space & visual culture - at a time when critics were positioning fragrance as a purist art object - include indie brands, underline the team-aspect of perfume authorship, as well as offer broad sociological context in a fragrance industry biased towards aspirational luxury and sensuality... I'm a PhD in Anthropology, a former Lavoisier Scholar at Oxford University, who's worked on foodways, identity & death as well as an English literature major now turned perfume blogger & chronicler out of conviction, passion & intellectual curiosity. That's the short of it.

PERFUME REVIEWS - PERFUME HOUSES A to H {Index}

TSS_logo_Flaming_Heart_500.png

WELCOME to THE SCENTED SALAMANDER, a BLOG for PEOPLE who are PASSIONATE about both NATURAL SCENTS & ARTISTIC PERFUMES, as well as the STORIES surrounding them!

 

 

Blog reading Guide:

Below is the blog index to fragrance reviews. Please note that there are hundreds more snippet reviews dispersed throughout the site. They might be found in the column Perfume Lists; mentioned as comparative review notes to a main, in-depth perfume review or in a new-fragrance announcement; or found in the category Scented Thoughts.

You can look up a perfume which interests you using the search box at the top of the blog and in the left column of the blog, in case you don't see it featured in the index.  The seach function retrieves 10 pages maximum each time.

Example: while there is no formal review of Mitsouko by Guerlain, it is reviewed in short form numerous times as we followed the evolution of its formulation and "flankerization" over the years.  

We think that a blog is a particularly apt medium for spontaneous news, current affairs, trend-following -even trend-setting -- but also needs a good measure of free-form, jazzy improvization for it to remain a blog. This explains the organic aspect of the blog.

Thanks for visiting the blog!
