Well, I don't want to denigrate the person who wrote that review.. but I don't like some of the things mentioned in it. "Knize Ten smells old and way outdated, plain and simple."
What does "old" and "outdated" smell like, exactly? Those aren't helpful adjectives.
I don't quite understand why someone would take the time to massacre a fragrance, but that's just one man's way of seeing it. Fragrances are designed to smell good - to evoke memories or trigger associations.
This person may have received a spoiled sample, but to go so far as to say it smells of "death... standing next to the open casket".. is pretty far-fetched. I'd be leery given the choice of language and adjectives used. It's fine to dislike a fragrance and have an opinion, but why take the time to massacre it for others? Plenty of people *love* Knize Ten - you just have to try it for yourself and let the less radical, more informative reviews guide you a bit more. That's my advice..
