    Default Sort results by rating?

    Is there no way to sort search results from the directory by average rating? It would be interesting to see which fragrances with at least x number of votes are rated 4.0+ out of 5, or whatever.

    Thought you meant the thumbs up/ down/ middle reviews.

    Yes, that would be helpful too... Like which fragrances are in the top 10 most thumbed up for women, for men, etc.

    It has been tried, but it does not give reliable info. For example an obscure fragrance that one person has tried and given a thumbs up would rate higher that a well loved fragrance that has been rated with 100 thumbs up and only one thumbs down, because of percentages.

    Yeah, that's why I specified "with at least x number of votes" to weed out the obscure ones. Another solution could be to use a Bayesian average.

    Yeah I'm no good with math but I'm sure someone could make an accurate scale, so for example something with 20 up 10 n 10 d would rate different than something with 40 up 10 n 20 d.

    Simplest is +1 for each thumbs up, 0 for each neutral and -1 for each thumbs down. Here are a few samples of the results. Do you think they'd be useful to you?

    Acqua di Gio gets +6 (7,4,1)
    Armani Attitude gets +14 (23,20,9)
    Chergui gets +37 (46,11,9)
    Cool Water gets +40 (73, 36, 33)
    Yatagan gets +44 (53, 8, 9)
    Azzaro Pour Home gets +57 (63, 10, 6)

    Chanel No. 5 gets +48 (65, 13, 17)
    Joy gets +19 (26, 9, 7)
    Caron Infini gets +6 (7, 3, 1)
    Tommy Girl gets +6 (13, 6, 7)
    Paris Hilton gets +6 (14, 5, 8)
    Fairy Dust gets +1 (2, 1, 1)
