What's the story?
The story is that I obviously was mistaken in my early post. I've sampled an awful lot of fragrances over the years, and apparently I was mistakenly thinking of another scent when I said the new GG was "lousy".
Considering you felt you needed to post this in the forum, rather than sending me a PM about this, it's quite clear that you're simply trying to embarrass me in the open forum. I also say this considering your criticising me in open forum the same day about my Rose Absolue thread, which you didn't even read carefully (I stated clearly that I had NOT yet sampled the scent), and your other public criticisms of my posts.
We all inadvertently contradict ourselves, as I've obviously done. Any time I've posted a thread or contributed a post, it's been sincere and has been about a subject that I've found interesting, in the hope that others do as well. Other BN members seem to have found some of my threads worthy of discussion. I find the posts by Mudassir, Buddy97 and InconceivableZen on this very thread to be very helpful, interesting and informative to me. My thanks to them.
Now I can see why Luca Turin quit the BN forum after just a few days.
