I've noticed that this site tends towards the gentleman perfumist(o)?
As in 1.3 million posts on the male frag board, 350k on the female board. When someone on the newbie board asks about favorite frags, the responding lists are a bunch of colognes. The reviews for "female" perfumes INEVITABLY mention whether or not a man can pull it off. A discussion about the "best" reviewers prompted lists of mostly male contributors.
What gives? Did basenotes start out as a male fragrance board? Are men THAT MUCH more into fragrance than women? Why are the women there such silent sniffers?
