As noirdrakkar said, to which I agree with, Swetcoff is the greatest fragrance reviewer in YouTube history. He was the best of the best. Charisma, great attitude, presentation, thoughts, no BS, no fluff, just fragrance talk without being banal, bland, boring, etc. I hope that one of these days he comes back. Who knows.
Tswetcoff is my favorite. His reviews were the best. I wish he would do an update video telling us he is doing well in life. God bless Tim, he is the reason I purchased fragrances. His enthusiasm is what I liked the most. If his reviews were not online, I probably would not have gotten into this, and would be spraying obsession for men every day instead of trying many different and good fragrances.
Katie Puckrick Smells is another good one. I enjoy her reviews.- - - Updated - - -

To respond to me being complacent in the past few years, well buying a a house getting married and having a child on the way slows down your motivation in reviewing. I still have the passion but the time is not there. I try my best to give the viewer the best experience on my channel and I pride myself on my testing of fragrances. I still test fragrances with over 30 wearings in a year within different seasons and occasions to really get a feel of the fragrance. I have upgraded my camera to full HD. You are not alone that many people want me to go back to the laid back 2010 style with 10 minute videos. I've been working on cutting the fat on my reviews to hopefully bring them down to that 10-12 minute range and cut the repetition once I am back.
I love hearing feedback about my channel without personal attacks of course, and I take it with a great pride and humility to try to give the subscriber the best product, but then again it is a free product for you to look at and it can't be perfect.
Since you asked for feedback...
I like shorter videos rather than long ones.
I like getting the following information, top notes, basenotes, best price and where to buy, and reactions of people to when you wear the fragrance. Some of my favorite reviewers have little clips where they ask someone, do you like this. It's interesting to see reactions.
I enjoy your videos (i've only watched a few), but when I find a long video I try and click ahead to find where it has the information I want. If I can't find it, I close that review and search for another reviewer.
If you want to make long videos, cool, can you provide a table of contents at the bottom that says "notes 4:31, prices 19:12, rating 22:40", so we can fast forward to what we want to find?
Thanks. Your reviews are helpful and I appreciate all the help you provide in helping us pick fragrances that match what we want.
