    Default Reading between the lines

    Just to say I've learnt a lot about humour and reading between the lines on basenotes.

    I never would have thought people could make fun of something like fragrance (!), especially online, where it's so difficult to communiate fun or laughter.

    I'm thinking of some of my favourites like A*men, Eau d'Hermes, L'Anarchiste, The Dreamer...blood, cats, pee, dope

    I come here to get my fill of what're the latest views on perfume, and at the same time get my laugh for the day.

    Don't stop :wave:

    I think you may need to lay off the cologne for a while, my friend. Basenotes is certainly a fantastic resource for fragrance aficianados, but for the most part the only humor appears to be unintentional. As far as I'm concerned, nothing is more amusing than reading how a new fragrance instantly transported the unwitting reviewer into another realm that happens to be populated by civet-laden, elf-like creatures foraging for bitter herbs in a damp primeval forest at dawn. Especially when the only description I could come up with for that same fragrance is something along the lines of "kinda spicy".

    "for the most part the only humor appears to be unintentional"

    So I guess my plans to do stand-up comedy should be scrapped, right?

    I think if you push the top of the bottle, some liquid comes out in a fine mist. Apparently I've read that you need to get this mist onto your skin somehow. From there I'm clueless. See the 4 step process below.

    1. Obtain bottle
    2. Push top of bottle
    3. ??????
    4. Profit!

    If anything, our humor, for the most part is dry and subtle. One must know the background in order to find it amusing.

    I'm from the philippines and I wear A*Men.
    only at nights though, and maybe once or twice during the day in a year, when I'm feeling suicidal.
