    I suppose 'Auf liebe der duft' (finalist in the category 'Best Online Perfumery') should be 'Aus Liebe zum Duft'?

    Whoops! Changed -- I knew I should have just written 'First in Fragrance'

    LOL @ Aventus as a nominee for "All Time Best". I think that is one of the most funniest and ridiculous damn things I have ever read!

    My mum-in-law has just given me a sample of Bottega Veneta, which I'll try tonight when I go home. I can't quite believe the best all time women's fragrances. Angel? Opium? What?! I would have expected CN5 to be there, even though it's not to my taste, but the others are humbug! What a load of pants! Who voted?

    I am heartened to see that Aventus is poised to take the All Time Best Mens award. I have a pot of water I keep on the stove to humidify the apartment. Is it too late to enter the competition?

    I suppose it is understandable to accept that scents need to be popular.. so actually SMELLED... to have a chance at this. Still, and at least as it pertains to the masculine categories, I will now replace the word "BEST" with the phrase "SUFFICIENTLY HYPED RUN-OF-THE-MILL" in order that any of these lists begins to make sense to me.

    My flacon of Aventus is shocked to see itself nominated for such an honor, when so many more well-regarded classics - including many by CREED - go unmentioned. Aventus humbly requests that its name be withdrawn.
