Beyond Paradise: For another week to come I will not know what the book says about it, but whoever is familiar with blogtextweb.pdf (Flexitral website) may remember an article originally published in NZZ Folio / 2005: The Perfect Floral. It holds the answers to some of the questions raised recently. The perfumer who did BP (both of them) also did Tommy Girl. "Her name: Calice Becker".

I agree! I am surprised to see so much defensiveness in different threads covering Perfume: The Guide. Use it to inform your views and possibly refine your impressions, but there is no reason to feel insecure or threatened by a rating that is not consistent with your experience.
