    Default Best Fragrance Ratio on BN

    I wonder what's the fragrance with the best ratio of
    positive/neutral/negative reviews with 20+ votes.

    I'd say GIT ?
    137 positive | 48 neutral | 27 negative
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    You should also consider the total number of ratings. Look at imdb.com's evaluation method.

    While possibly a bit off-topic, since only totaling exactly a tenth of the required 20, with 2 positive reviews out of the 2 so far, Cuir Vetiver by Yves Rocher seems to be having a quite good ratio up to this moment

    I'd say this also.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    From what I've seen, the ratings for Agua Lavanda always stuck out. I don't think anything else made it past 30 with all positive votes. But as mentioned, it's only 32.

    Gucci Nobile is pretty good too - 58 total, 5 neutral, 1 negative.

    L' Homme has 100% positive reviews. Only 11 but 100%. It is a masterpiece.

    Ironically, first misread this as "The Tragedy of Lloyd George" and without getting too political, faced a certain difficulty not just to guess or imagine not just what possibly in the life of this historical character could have been so tragic, but more so, what could have inspired a Penhaligon`s fragrance (perhaps akin to the Churchill-Blenheim connection)

    I'll raise you a L'Occitane Eau De 4 Voleurs... 17 from 17. Better than Frankel.

    Sycomore is way up there, good body of evidence too.

    For those with over 20 total (mentioned in OP), Nemo - Cacharel is doing pretty good too. Not Agua Lavanda good (as mentioned - 32 total, 100% Positive), but:

    39 Total

    36 Positive (92.3%)
    2 Neutral (5.1%)
    1 Negative (2.6)

    Funny how two of the highest rated are practically never talked about.

    Wonder why that is. Is it that the fragrances really are that agreeable or is it the type of fragrance combined with availability and who seeks them out to try?
