Hello Ayala. You win First Prize in the highly competitive "Best Reviews on Basenotes" category in my book! I have just spent the last two and half hours reading all of them and they are superbly done, poetically written, highly inspirational, and above all, earnest, which makes them so very touching. I am a fan. (You and I competed for the much less coveted "Longest-Winded Reviewer on Basenotes" category, but I'm afraid I won that one!) -le MdM
Thanks for the friendship request!
It really annoys me when eBay sellers use other peoples work to potentially boost their sales. I see it with Nail Varnish and Eyeshadow swatches as well and it makes me more mad than it should - meaning I actually get angry! I refuse to buy from sellers who do it. x]
Anyway, I'm glad you got a chance to contact the seller and I hope they are smart enough to stop doing it.
I'm in Australia but I know it's almost Thanksgiving in the US (where I think you are?) so
Happy Thanksgiving!! (or is that Merry? Lol *no clue*)
I'm not sure if you visit here any more but I thought I'd point this out.
I'm not sure you can do much about this sort of thing other than report it to eBay but this seller is using your review to sell their Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia.
Of course they may already have your permission to use it but I thought it was worth mentioning.
All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher. ~Ambrose Bierce, Epigrams
To live alone one must be a beast or a god, says Aristotle. Leaving out the third case: one must be both - a philosopher. ~Friedrich Nietzsche ...enjoy your day...
Love your review of HABANITA, Ayala. I always trust your reviews because you are analytical, your nose is excellent and right-on... and you're not a mean showoff like Luca Turin can be. (-;
I am thinking of wearing HABANITA... that bitter accord never lets the sweet base get too cozy and sweet...
Happy Birthday to you and many happy returns of the day (a little birdie named Chaya told me it was your birthday today!)!! Hope it was a good one!
