This is a list I keep of all the fragrance, perfume, and cologne-related blogs out there, including blogs that are currently inactive or have gone offline.

I took on this project since I think it’s a useful piece of bookkeeping for the community. If your blog is on this list and you’d like me to remove it, or your blog isn’t on this list and you think it should be, or you think your blog is in the wrong category, feel free to send me a message!

Individual Blogs

These are blogs maintained by one or a few individual bloggers. Often quite personal, these are my favorite blogs to read and interact with. The list of active individual blogs doubles as my personal reading list.

Platform Blogs

Fragrance-related platforms and forums often maintain a blog, writing about news in the field, new releases, and more.

Inactive

Offline

Magazine Blogs

Online magazines and large multi-author blogs with many different contributors with no significant forum or platform attached belong in this category.

Company Blogs

These are blogs maintained by fragrance companies, who often publish informational blog posts to entice readers to their sites and support their buyers.

A Few Notes on the Blogroll

  • I have excluded a few company blogs kept by fragrance companies for thin content. If it’s a blog that only posts corporate announcements (“We have a new board member!”) or has less than ten blog posts total, it likely isn’t of interest to the community.
  • I consider a blog to be inactive if the owner has issued an official retirement statement or if there has been no new content on the blog in the last calendar year.
  • Each list is presented in alphabetical order, with definite articles (“the”) excluded in the ordering.
  • These lists simply include blogs that I found in my search. No company, platform, magazine, or individual has paid or otherwise compensated me to list their blog here, and the links on this page are not affiliate or sponsored links.
  • The offline lists do not include URLs. This is for good reason. These are lists of blog titles for posterity. These blogs are no longer on the Internet (to my knowledge). If you remember their old domain names or can assume them from the blog titles, please do not visit them. Most of them are just “oops, nothing is here” parking pages, but a few domain names of prominent fragrance blogs past have since been picked up by unsavory actors that want to redirect fans to their spam, scam, online gambling, or pornography site. A few prominent blogrolls and fragrance blog lists still link to these, but quite frankly I want to make sure my readers stay away from them.

Lastly, I’ve included an open comment section on this page as a guest book of sorts. Use it to discuss your favorite blogs, reminisce on days of blogging past, promote your new (relevant) project, or just chat about anything you like!
