    When I went to be last night, the poll regarding Habit Rouge and Egoiste had Egoiste at 12 and Habit Rouge at 7. I woke up this morning and those numbers had turned into Egoiste 20 and Habit Rouge 7.

    You're tellin me that between that time, Habit Rouge gained not one vote, but Egoiste gained 8?! *A snowball's chance in hell.

    The prior statistical average was a completely different animal. If one were doing statistics, this kind of rapid jump would be considered almost impossible.

    This is just one of many reasons why I don't put any stock whatsoever in online polls. Who's doing the voting? How many computers, ISP #'s does one person have, etc etc etc.

    I suppose polls are fun for people, but I'd never put any stock in the numbers they generate. *I've witnessed the same thing on numerous occasions regarding online polls of varying kinds. It's quite entertaining to watch.

    UPDATE: For all ye newcomers out there, do not buy bottles of fragrance based upon reviews or poll numbers. Always buy decants (1/3 oz or more) of said fragrance to see if you like it. Many times the reviews are well-written and sound so compelling, but you will be never cease to be surprised at what your nose detects and how the fragrance makes you feel. And this goes the other way. You may not think you would like a fragrances and it turns out to be the best thing you've ever smelled. Popularity doesn't mean much. Your nose does. Use it. Try as wide a variety of fragrances as possible.

    Get to it. See Scentemental. He's a super guy and owns well over three hundred fine fragrances that he can decant and send to you.

    well remember that the internet (and therefore bn) spans the globe. overnight, you've got a whole new batch of people in different timezones waking up. there may be cultural differences in taste between them. or simply differences in what they have been exposed to. for example, egoiste was widely available and known in the US. habit rouge not so much.

    that kind of rapid jump is almost impossible. there were people all over the world logged on to this site last night, this morning, etc etc etc. there's not enough variability in that area to dictate those sort of shifts in poll numbers. not even close. the fact is that one person or group of people can run the numbers up drastically if they want. that's just the way it is.

    The bigger issue I believe is that the great majority of those participating in these polls have not tried both or all of the fragrance choices. The voting is therefore slanted toward the less expensive and/or more commonly available frags. I, for example, would love to see a true polling of people who have tried both Havana and Bois du Portugal. Considering the cost of BDP and the rarity of Havana, any such results here would be questionable. This is of course true of most polls including expensive or rare frags.

    Did you read my first post?! Do people fix polls? Call it what you want, running up the numbers, etc etc etc. That doesn't mean it's fixed. That would be predetermined. We don't know any of that. I'm telling you about trends and inclinations regarding polls in general and that putting stock in the numbers is foolish. This goes for most polls. Study statistics and polls and you'll understand what I'm saying.

    yes i did read your post. i just couldn't believe you were actually saying that ppl would bother fixing a little poll on BN, which is what it sounded like. afterall, if you rule out natural causes (some of which i mentioned), then the only thing left is a fix.

    i did study stats. if the vote was 50,000 to 50,000, and then overnight it became 100,000 to 50,000, then you would have something. as it is, it's an increase of eight votes. that's nothing.

    look, i'm not trying to fight with you about this lol. i'm just saying you might be getting a wee bit paranoid. on the other hand, when you say that these polls are meaningless overall, i totally agree.

    Pluran,

    I don't know if you are aware of the fact that Egoiste recently was crowned the champion of markc's Field of 64 tournament for fragrances here on Basenotes. *For whatever reason, Egoiste has a huge following here on Basenotes. *I seriously doubt that anyone here is that heavily invested in the outcome of one of these silly polls to sign on under various ISPs to slant the voting in one particular direction. *These polls are for amusement purposes only....I think most people here realise that.

    well, there are a lot of people on this board that seemingly prefer egoiste, just by observing discussions and the monthly SOTD tallies ;D

    It just doesn`t smell great, but it`s high quality fragrance. Work of art by Mr. Polge. Complex, timeless, unique, inimitable, distinctive, easy-to-wear-dead-sexy.

    I concur. I laughed when I read this thread. Thanks for providing my daily chuckle! Indeed, natural cause factors in to the effect. There is a plethora of mathematical constructs and psychological evidence to propagate what liquid is saying. Maybe that poll was discussed in Nostradamous's quatrains. Seriously, Pluran, you have been helpful to me in the past and offer great advice to people so don't crap out on me now. Ultimately people will make their own minds up. Polling is fun and gives the poller something to think about until they do make their mind up. We are all here for entertainment purposes only.

    To preface, I wear Egoiste slightly more frequently than Habit Rouge, although I wear neither one that much. My interest in the poll is based entirely on principle.

    I NEVER stated that the poll was "fixed." But one never knows does one? It's hell being naive. Did you actually read, without emotion, what I said?

    It doesn't matter what the poll is for - entertainment, politics, etc. Online polls cannot be trusted. If you think they can you're a fool. Sure, it can be entertaining (in a rather lame sort of way), but I am saying that a lot of people here DO take the polls seriously and it would be good for them to remember that the results are often misleading. And YES, they can be tilted intentionally very easily..............JUST FOR FUN!

    The only reason I mentioned it is to create awareness. Some of you take it the wrong way. You just react emotionally. I understand. I would have to when I was younger.

    I am confident that it will still be hard for you to understand. This thread seems to have taken on a serious tone to you. But I don't find it serious at all. It's just a part of the game.

    There are quite a few of you on this site who take things WAY too seriously. This is evident by reading the threads each day. My presence here in general is entirely one of amusement. It always has been. Although, there have been some great threads with substantial information. I am always inspired by those. But I must say, a great deal of it I find to be a little pretentious.

    GET OVER YOURELVES! Get out and seek adventure if you're able. The only reason I'm not is because my body is busted up and I'm unable to for another couple of months. *

    Basenotes is awesome. I will agree with that.

    pluran, not sure if that was addressed to me, but i guess it was. it's not my goal to keep harping on this. i have not looked at the thread since it began. however, to say that i/we somehow misread your comments is incorrect. i understood you perfectly, without any emotion (why would anyone get emotional about it? i'm confused).

    first, you said that this jump of 8 votes is "almost impossible".

    second, you discounted possible natural causes.

    third, you said "Do people fix polls? Call it what you want, running up the numbers, etc etc etc."

    well my friend, that would be a "fix". though you did not specifically call it a "fix" yourself, you described it to a T. it's only a matter of semantics. you might as well come out and call it that. of course it's not a big deal. i am in no way taking this thread any more "seriously" than any other thread. but let's be accurate and honest about what we are saying here. anyway, i do agree that the polls are for fun. i think everyone knows that.

    who are you and what the hell are you talking about? you obviously haven't understood a word i've said. don't reply. i won't discuss it. everything i've written and the motivation behind it is entirely clear.

    i'm older than you. my age is listed on my profile. i don't think you're 34. either way. i told you earlier i wouldn't discuss it. there's nothing to discuss. this is not about fragrance.

    well i am indeed 34. but i don't believe you are 39. you know, you keep saying that you won't discuss it. yet you keep replying.

    Get to it. See Scentemental. He's a super guy and owns well over three hundred fine fragrances that he can decant and send to you.

    I can vouch for that. He's a GREAT guy and VERY helpful, too![/quote]

    So much so, that if there would be a poll:
    shall I buy based on the result of a poll
    or
    based on the opinion of scentemental,

    the clear winner would be the latter.

    But if you don't believe it, you may initiate a poll about it.
