    Default How long will it take for a review of a fragrance to appear?

    I have posted my first review. It has been on hold for over 2 days and it keeps coming back for editing and I resubmit it but it never gets posted.

    Mine was submitted after a week. I really don't understand why it takes so long, but it is no big deal

    The average waiting time is one week, I think. But there was one instance when a review (forgot for which cologne) of mine was approved just a couple of days after I submitted it. I don't mind the wait, as I also enjoy exchanging ideas outside of reviews (BN fora).

    By the way, welcome to Basenotes!

    I have been discouraged to write any review. My first one written on October 3 is still pending. On amazon.com, it appears instantaneously. It is not like we are launching a nuclear ballistic missile.

    Yea, i'm with you. I'm still waiting on my review to appear. As serious as perfumery is, I don't think it requires concurrence by a five person panel...I kid, I kid!!

    Sometimes it is over a week...no big deal unless you are trying to compile a list of fragrances you have tried.

    The mods (who are volunteers) have to read over the new reviews, in addition to all their other duties. So it does take a bit of time.

    I suspect the main reason the reviews need to be checked is because of all the spam Basenotes gets. I find myself reporting spam posts every day.
