I felt truly sad reading these comments, mostly because they add absolutely nothing substantial in order to get an impression of what the fragrance really smells like. Totally pointless...
I still do read reviews of scents that interest me (mainly here on BN), but I pay, so to speak, no attention to "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" anymore, even if I know the reviewer and I share many preferences. The subtle nuances in fragrance can never be described in terms of omnipotent relevance.
What someone else likes doesn´t matter at all to me when it comes to a scent, since it could never have any influence on my own likes/dislikes.
Depressing reading, but thanks for posting, Stu!
I hereby declare Luca Turin´s description of (one of my HG:s) SL A La Nuit as "death by jasmine" my favourite "review" ever. "Jasmine" says something, whereas "old lady smell" does not. At all.
Edit: Hey - maybe we could all agree on that Aromatics Elixir smells somewhat "aromatic"...?
