Good analysis! You're right in a lot of ways, but I think even the most serious collectors on this forum appreciate their Diors, Chanels, and YSLs as much as their Amouages and Lutens. For this particular forum we're pretty lucky to have a very open-minded and relatively non-elitist crowd. Even a super popular scent like AdG doesn't get bashed too much, in fact it gets recommended a lot. And in general the people here are just super nice!
