    Design on main page of Fragrance Directory

    I am...underwhelmed, I must admit, with how the main page of the Fragrance Directory looks. But there is no point in discussing the design or usability/functionality if the template is what it is, and everyone at Huddler is insistent that this is how it needs to look and function. Are we past that point or can we still give input on how the page looks?

    l'm not going to mince my words here; l think it sucks.

     

    When you click on a house to view their list of fragrances, they are in a completely random order, making it a total pain to search for anything. And you can't search for a fragrance by name.

     

    Are we stuck with this? Really?

    These are really great points to bring to Grant. He would be the gatekeeper in getting changes made or finalizing what's on here at Basenotes since he is the owner. Nothing is finalized and as long as Grant pushes for it, we're all ears. Thanks guys!

    Why do fragrance "product" pages start with reviews rather that starting with the notes, etc?  Seriously?  The details including notes, etc, come after reviews now, at the bottom of the page?  I realize this version of the site wasn't designed by people who know anything about perfume, but still...  Yikes.

     

    Compare the information HERE with the information HERE.  The basenotes design is more modern, but there's so little information now and we have to go to the bottom of the pages to find it.

    Thank you. One easy fix that I think you should do right away is the "Launch date" function. Please reverse it, so it starts with the last year first. And the sorting option has no function here.
