I'm amazed how the original subject of this thread could evolve in all this deep thinking and explaining about "community behaviour" of human beings in general with wonderfull history facts and all. But all this wonderfull use of english grammar is rising above the borders of my intelligence level , so hard I hear my brains cracking.Originally Posted by the_good_life
Yet, the last part of Goodlifes post maybe explaines it , our taste changes over time and snobs ( or connaiseurs) will always excist. And... there will always be people who tell us they don't like the way we smell.

I didn't have a real interest in fragrances except for my four I had at the time until I went to a friends house. He had about fifteen different fragrances, and I was AMAZED. Each scent was so unique and new, I was baffled at how I couldn't have noticed this wonderful world of fragrance before. Three years later, I realize that he had very mainstream scents, but to me at the time, they were gold. His Nautica, Bod, Abercrombie and Hollister were foreign to me, so they were unique. Now that I now a thing (or two), its different.
Yes, I am a snob. I have a bottle of Hugo Boss (Which I wear rarely, despite how many compliments I get), and Domain by Mary Kay. I was furious when I found out Domain is almost an exact copy, and don't like it at all, but my friends think its golden. It really is a pleasant scent, but once you've heard "Last Resort" by Papa Roach, and all of its variants, the new variants get really boring. So, yes I am a snob, and I won't change, because I've now seen the light.
