I think that this idea has been thrown around a bit, but still I love the idea, although I am quite new to fragance and thus unqualified to make meaningful comments on the product itself, I have an idea:
How about having actually a series of scents based on archetypes(idea from the archetype thread http://www.basenotes.net/community/Y...num=1141956148) such as "Basenotes Artist", "Basenotes Doctor" or "Basenotes Bus Driver" : because I think that it is almost 100% sure that there will be people unhappy about a single scent representing Basenotes, as some people might not like it, while others would love it.
Also, if we start up with donations, I think that upon completion of the project, there should be a first edition with a piece of paper with all the names of the people that donated . Or if it costs too much, just a URL of a page that does.
But I doubt this idea will takeoff, sadly :-/
