Interesting piece, SG. Thanks. Two thoughts:
1. I think lots of perfume enthusiasts tend to get too caught up in notes and forget the point of the fragrance. It's like listening to music and only being concerned about identifying all the instruments. Some of the discussion around the Untitled project was like this, and it drove me bats. There's a balance to be struck, and I think reviewers like Katie Puckrik tend to get it right.
2. Having said that, I agree with MikeJ in that sometimes you know you love tuberose and so you want to find another tuberose fragrance. But even when that's the case, it's not the note list of the perfume I look at - it's the reviews. I trust you guys (or certain of you guys) to tell me what a perfume really smells like. Which is often very different from what you'll ascertain from that list.
