- I wonder who actually is in charge of that. I realize that the administration of the directory is a huge task, and I appreciate and am grateful for all that is being done. On the other hand, errors reported, and additions suggested have been pending for a long period within the past twelve months, or more. And I wonder if and how the resources available within the community could not be channeled in a way that would, for example, make the directory section more reliable, and up-to-date. Wikipedia may not be perfect, but the results are very impressive. Shouldn't Basenotes consider adopting some of their methods to compile information?
- I personally do not need a fragrance pyramid (concise as it has to be for good reasons) but I shouldn't have to rely on various reviews, good and bad ones, to find a few notes mentioned for whatever fragrance.
- I suspect the pyramids are part of the BN perfume database which means: a major number of data sets have gaps. Therefore the indispensable tool, db search
, is not fully functional
. If your search crit is a specific note, say lavender, you do not find all colognes containing lavender. Instead, you probably only find colognes,which have a pyramid (or equivalent) that includes lavendar. You don't believe me? Try and find Serge Luten's Encens et Lavande
or Gris Clair
as your search criterium
