I’d like to welcome everyone coming over from the new Essence of the Ages newsletter and web site and thank Beth for including the link and description. I hope you’ll all find plenty of information here to help guide you to new incenses you might like. Please avail yourself of the Incense Reviews Index and Incense of Hall of Fame to get your feet wet and feel free to jump into the conversation at any time. I do use a filter for spam here, but once a person’s first post is approved, it is approved from that computer from then on. Feel free to use the About page to contact me if you have any questions.
As of this morning, I’ve restored all the relevant links from Mike’s Prattle. In terms of incense suppliers and companies, any time I’ve had more than three highly satisfactory experiences at a company, if you hover over their link it will say Consistently Excellent Service. But everyone I’ve listed under suppliers is a company I’ve had at least one excellent experience with. If I haven’t had a good experience the company will not be on the list.
I’d also like to welcome friend and new Olfactory Rescue Serviceman Ross Urrere as a contributor. We’re still working on getting his account set up, but I’m looking forward to reading his future reports. As an example, this was Ross’s first writeup for Mike’s Prattle.
More reports should be returning to the site this week. If you’ve noticed, I’ve managed to get the randomly generated avatars back, this time little weird creatures. I’ve got a few options for these so let me know what you think.
[Later edit: Thanks to Steve’s idea I’ve started an “Ask the Olfactory Rescue Service” page.]
