Terrific

It can be a lonely world for the designer/niche fragrance lover, especially if you’re a guy, and a straight one at that. But these fellows are great. Very funny, entertaining and informative. Their reviews and fragrance battles are a real treat. Their audio equipment could use some improvement as the sound quality is tinny and poor, but you can still hear them well enough. They come off as very informed, enthusiastic and impartial, with the exception of Thomas’s infatuation with Mugler, but even that doesn’t interfere. I love this podcast and I’m so happy they produce it.

Worst microphones in podcasting

This could be a great podcast. Unfortunately I have no idea of knowing, due to nor being able to hear a thing. Have to plug it into my home stereo and crank the volume all the way up to hear what they are saying. It's unlistenable in this form. These guys gotta invest in a microphone.
