    M7 cures everything.
    It also increases penis size and brings rain to the desert.

    M7 is better than WD-40

    Hook, line and sinker. My poor cats got a ranting dissertation on the "Decline of Ethical Fortitude in the Corporate World". Then I read on, now I feel silly. Hope it's all for not!

    Hi - I visited the JAR store in Paris last month and want to write an overall review of myexperience. Is that possible? I see JAR listed as a Brand but don't see the individual perfumes listed, or whether it is possible to write a review about JAR in general.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    I totally fell for it for the first 30 seconds, oh, that would have been horrible! Only positive reviews would be so useless!

    Grant, even if I spend the entire year trying to figure out how to trick everyone on April Fool's Day I could never come up with anything for my blog... And after that one I won't even try

    On a serious note, how long does it take a review to show up after you submit it? I wrote a review of Pino Silvestre yesterday and it still isn't showing.

    Considering reviews haven't been around in a while, I'm guessing LOTS of members have been writing reviews of everything they have back-logged. I've written a few myself a few days ago, they're not up yet either. You might have to wait a while!

    We've still got reviews pending from December!

    Once the review system is complete, we'll get up to date!

    Since our launch in 2000, we have actively encouraged our visitors to submit their own reviews of fragrances listed in our database. Presently we have over 30,000 fragrance reviews on the site.


    After eight years of showing a wide range of opinions, it is with a tinge of sadness that we are announcing a change in policy. Due to falling sales of fragrances (which affects our business), we have come to an arrangement with the top fragrance houses, that we will only publish positive reviews. We feel that this will cause a boost in sales and lead to a healthier industry.

    From 1st May only positive reviews will be accepted. Thank you for your understanding.
    Hmm, you got me....Nice April fools joke

    I'll admit that a certain chill went down my spine as I thought about Grant caving in to the corporatist will.

    Question Re: Policy change - consumer reviews on Basenotes

    My first day at basenotes, my first communique and my first prayer: Me hopes this is nothing more than an April Fools stunt. If it is, you've scored a TEN; what could be more unimaginable than a basenotes review without some narccisse moi; if it's not, you've scored the first recorded civet- cloud- burst in April....April showers bring May...? I'm prayin', I'm prayin'!
