I'm so sad at having to say goodbye to Basenotes, the site that has taught me so much about perfume. The kindness and generosity of so many of you posters here has been a godsend! But I'm reluctantly saying goodbye because I just can't stand the animated ads that are everywhere on this site now. From the moment you type in the word Basenotes and get the first look, to the forums you go to, these moving, distracting, very annoying ads are evident on every page. They hurt my eyes and make it hard to concentrate. My eyes are literally watering because of them right now.
If only you hadn't gone so big, Basenotes! If only you'd stuck with still ads, that didn't hurt anyone's eyesight! But no, you had to go large, and with that, you've lost me.
Thank you for the happy years I spent with you, and farewell!
