    Excellent job and you're both very "videogenic", if that's a word. I hope you realise how much your efforts are appreciated around the world. Of course, it would probably help if leeches like me got around to buying memberships. I will now so do. Thanks.

    Re: video: basenotes news

    That was fantastic!

    You both seem to have personalities and voices that lend themselves to video. I want to echo the comments above about the natural rapport the two of you have. More of that would be no bad thing.

    Regarding A/V, the music, titles, and pictures spliced in and around the news itself were well chosen and executed.

    My only suggestion would be to alternate the presenting of the news itself between the two of you more often in future videos. This will play up the back-and-forth dynamic that works so well whilst keeping the same non-reader from sitting idly on-camera for too long.

    I look forward to making this a Friday staple. Subscribed! :thumbup:

    Thank you for the sharing. Hopefully more people will be exposed to the world of fragrance--beyond what is being pushed in the local shopping malls. :D

    I feel like I just made Two great new friends, I love you're Charm and sense of Humor. And you have Chemistry to spare, and I was impressed with the quality of the video. Good luck with all you're endeavors. And may you entertain us forever here at Basenotes

    It's wonderful to see both Grant and Danielle. Hello you two ! :) You both look great on screen . I always wanted to know what you both looked like ! :)
    I think having video news is a great step forward. Thanks !

    Very impressive. You two have a natural chemistry that easily shows thru onscreen and it was so delightful to finally see and hear both of you. Here on BN we rarely get to 'meet' each other and now I feel like I have met you already. Plus I love both of your British accents and your impeccable pronounciations of those tough French fragrance names. :)

    I'm looking forward to future video posts!!

    You think that was funny you should see the idiocy we display on the out-takes! I have genuinely not laughed so hard in months :grin:

    I think it is an important point - the 'TV generation' is a wide and influential audience, so we hope you are not alone in enjoying your news this way ;)

    We have started to record a video diary of our *top secret* project for eventual YouTube broadcast and we are both much more conversational which is far more comfortable territory for both and, we have been told(?), more engaging to watch so we're looking forward to that.

    Imaginations engaged as instructed sir and ready for action. Thank you very much for all your feedback here and on the channel RP.

    Thanks for all the lovely comments btw. This is by far the most nerve-wracking BN undertaking ever because it is the most personal :-S

    We also have big Fragrance Foundation/Basenotes news coming soon and big insert-aroma-house-name-here-in-couple-of-weeks-time-when-can-actually-talk-about-it-openly/Basenotes news too. I have been doing this a lot this week: :D
    Like Pia said, the domestic background is wonderful. I think it's actually perfect right now - just the way great, authentic things should start. lt will be fun to watch it grow. And you two have a very nice co-anchor thing going, to say nothing of both of your obvious comedic charms. I got some wonderful laughs this morning. Very cool stuff.

    LOL :grin:

    Yes, it's a great video. As I said on the vid comments - the fact that you two were wearing the same perfumer's work when you met? Too cute!
