It's not about ice cream. I'm sure you have seen in People Magazine - The best and worst dressed movie stars of the year. It always amazes me that the worst dressed don't even realize how bad thay look. When they see their picture they think they look, not realizing people with good taste know they don't.
It's simply a matter of good taste. Some people have it, and some don't. Yes, I do get passionate about bad taste, whether its food, perfume or clothes. I'm just so happy that I have good taste in all three categories.
It seems most wine connoisseurs can agree between good and bad, then rate the good ones a little bit different as should be. Food critics don't take into account fast food or chains as being gourmet as should be. I'm not sure why perfume enthusiasts can't agree on good and bad, then there is room for discussion between the good ones. It's probably because there aren't enough professionals rating the perfumes. It's just us amateurs at basenotes. Hopefully most of us will aquire good taste through experience and we can stop having discussions about garbage.
