    Haha. A Basenotes Flash Mob! Interesting idea...

    What a douchebag that owner is. I would get even in some way...call me immature. I would get a friend to in the shop and start to make several very expensive purchases, but it must be from the owner. To let the owner know he is serious, I would even have him/her count money in front of the owner to figure out exactly how many bottles he/she can purchase. Then at the register, while the owner is totalling everything, have your friend say, "Wait, I have a good friend who is a fragrance reviewer, let me check with him to see if he needs anything." Then while on the phone with you, have your friend say, "I'm at Le Maquiller, why" then have him say "this is that shop that gave you that horrible service?! That one you wrote about on that famous fragrance website?!" Then have your friend say he would never buy anything from a shop that treats people so poorly, and proceed to walk out without a thing after getting the owner all hot and bothered with a huge order. I would even have a few more friends go in and say to the owner, "Help me?! Oh heavens no, I just had to see what you (the owner) looked like after reading about your horrible service online."
    Yes, I"m horribly passive agressive and a tad vindictive, but there is no way I would let that owner get away with that!

    OP Have you had a email reply yet?

    I don't think the owner has studied his own profession very well. When owning a niche perfume store you should realise people will review your store on sites like this.
    There are quite a few dutch posters here, so this isn't very good advertisement at all.

    I am planning to visit the shop sometime this month and test every single fragrance on the shelves then leave.

    According to their website they are closed by now. Justice has been done.

    Haha, brutal.

    In all fairness, If that's their attitude to business, I'm not surprised...

    Yeah, dormant. But there is an end to this story - two years later. Why not tell the end?

    Yeah, I was surprised to see an email in my inbox saying there's been an update on this thread.
