I can see absolutely nothing wrong with that, as long as it's working for you!  :)

Thanks, Elbow! I am gobsmacked by you lovely techies and appreciate the generous sharing of spreadsheets. Also, Elbow, I enjoyed your summary of tech history on the previous page!

Thanks, haha!  I really do feel it's epic.  In a thoroughly, remorselessly geeky way.  B)

Plagues are updated, as are last Lunacy Poll results - sometimes I'm just a bit slow behind updates.

izile, thank you so much for maintaining this list. I've been a casual sniffer since about 2008 but really getting into it now.

 

I discovered today that the scent I tried on, I Died For Beauty, is actually discontinued, but it isn't marked that way in your spreadsheet. It looked like the doc was view-only, and I wasn't sure if you want feedback/corrections, but there ya go. Thanks again for sharing it!

mlyn - I admit, when it comes to things like the dates/discontinued status, etc... I haven't even bothered to try and keep that clear.  The original creator was much more in depth - I sometimes am pressed to just get the titles, category and description in and right.  I do keep hoping that, yes, if I am missing a scent, please tell me, I at least want to keep all the titles and scent notes in, if at all possible... other things like date of release, date of discontinue, etc.. is just a bit much for me at this point.

 

 

(Speaking of, someone just asked about the old original elemental massage oils, I went to look them up, and they weren't there! arg!  So, I know there's holes, probably especially on the BPTP tab, I just can't find them all - that hole, though, is now fixed.)

I have been using your spreadsheet for the past year for my own collection and it has proven SO useful.  Thank you so much!  I haven't kept on top of the Trading Post either, maybe I need to look yours up and fill it in. 

 

The only major hole I have found in the original spreadsheet you made available is Cabaret Goth.  I think it's an event exclusive from a con, but I'm not sure what year.  I put it in D*Con from 2010, but who knows if that is right.

 

Edit to add: My real point though is that the spreadsheet is amazing.  One little event oil in 8 years of material. Seriously.

The -Goth scents, including Cabaret Goth, were part of the Bats Day 2011 event. :)

Yup, and they are on my sheet, just for some reason they say Cabaret. Goth, Vamp. Goth - so the period probably throws off the search.

Just wanted to swing by and give a huge thank you to izile and sunlitgarden for taking on spreadsheet stuff way back when. I'm embarrassed that I fell off the face of the earth when I had a major depressive episode. I'm so glad to be able to come here and get back into things (and with izile's updated spreadsheet to help me out after all the updates over the last few years!)  :smilenod:

Absolutely!  Glad you're back!  And yeah, I just picked up and kept going what was already built because it was such a useful invention, I didn't want to do without it!

I'm old school too. I use the spreadsheet to find older things that I want to try, but I write my scent trials in a little black book, titled simply, "My BPAL Journal."

I unfortunately do not own a computer; does anyone know of a good list-y application that might be good for checklisting scents?
I have to many I love/don't like, and can never keep track...
To bad we can't just make a bpal app XD
