    Default Basenotes Reviews are getting better.

    Today I received two blind buys in the mail that I purchased relatively inexpensively.

    I came across them while skimming through a site, then I checked the Directory reviews, where they were more positively received than negatively rejected.

    The scents were Fath's Yang and Caron's L'Anarchiste, and I was most impressed - something different with a bit of punch..

    Of course, I couldn't resist also picking up a dirt cheap scent while I was at it, a former Basenotes scent of the year, Clairborne's Mambo.

    I really like it when reviews lead me up a good path.

    Mambo beat Mugler Cologne AND Body Kouros!?!?! And neither of those two even came in SECOND? Either Mambo was one of those flavors of the week or this place has really changed a lot in taste.

    Mambo? What the!, I got this blind and put in the garbage the 2nd day, it just gave me a headache, and that was not the worst part. It smelt EXACTLY like the orange scent bathroom cleaner that I had in my bathroom.

    Well, I don't think you are being very fair on Mambo.

    Just because you have a fabulous smelling bathroom cleaner (or you wouldn't have bought it, would you?), shouldn't mean that Mambo is seen as being sub average just because it smells like the great smelling cleaner.

    I really like Drakkar Noir. Should I not have liked it, if I'd smelled Hovex Clothing Protectors first, as they smell just like it?

    P.S. Mambo reminds me of the same fruity fresh style as another favourite - Perry Man.
