I, too, am truly humbled by even being mentioned...to share my passion is an honor.
I also want to say that I agree so wholeheartedly with what a great
contributor on Basenotes, perfaddict, says here.
This is an incredible, thriving and fantastic open forum for all the different perspectives that we have...and share. The forum conversations, polls, off-topic threads, and more - also contribute immensely to making this a true "community" of people from all over the world who come to share our common passion of scent. It is so wonderful to be a part of 'this' and have my name mentioned by both people whom I consider true friends in life as well as great reviewers that I, myself, look up to immensely.
Those people whom I consider both great reviewers, but also passionate friends in the community -
Sculpture of Soul
...many more dear friends and people here who provide inspiration and wisdom!

Both Basenotes and the frags reviewed here, are like the proverbial huge elephant, viewed exclusively from different angles by different persons, leading to different impressions of the same frag. One needs all the various perspectives to get the whole picture.
Kudos to all reviewers named here,and the many more un-named who have made their so-far-unthanked mark on me.
