    As noirdrakkar said, to which I agree with, Swetcoff is the greatest fragrance reviewer in YouTube history. He was the best of the best. Charisma, great attitude, presentation, thoughts, no BS, no fluff, just fragrance talk without being banal, bland, boring, etc. I hope that one of these days he comes back. Who knows.
    What happened? Bottom Note deleted his channel.

    I gave up watching them after a few tries. The problem with youTube reviews is the spotlight always fall on the reviewer rather than the fragrance. That's just the way visual media work. You could minimize this by focusing the camera on the product not the reviewer. But hey, what about my 5 minutes of fame?? Not every reviewer is willing to give up face time.

    Ive watched a few of these. Most are either highly amusing or boring.

    Id say Jim Quantrell is probally the best, and toons1200 is ok to. Street scents is good for a laugh lol.

    Everything else is a bit meh.

    lol @ me having an ego. I have some self confidence in my nose yes, so yes after years of smelling fragrances (specially the years I've been on youtube , I have gone in overdrive and sniff everything I can) , so i am much more confident in pin pointing certain notes and what smells good together etc... i do not think (ego wise) that I think I am the end all and be all of fragrance reviewing, I always want the community to shine and want people to sniff as much as they want.

    To respond to me being complacent in the past few years, well buying a a house getting married and having a child on the way slows down your motivation in reviewing. I still have the passion but the time is not there. I try my best to give the viewer the best experience on my channel and I pride myself on my testing of fragrances. I still test fragrances with over 30 wearings in a year within different seasons and occasions to really get a feel of the fragrance. I have upgraded my camera to full HD. You are not alone that many people want me to go back to the laid back 2010 style with 10 minute videos. I've been working on cutting the fat on my reviews to hopefully bring them down to that 10-12 minute range and cut the repetition once I am back.

    I love hearing feedback about my channel without personal attacks of course, and I take it with a great pride and humility to try to give the subscriber the best product, but then again it is a free product for you to look at and it can't be perfect.

    EASILY MyMickers! His infectious enthusiasm and outrageous charisma make him a real life shot of 5-hour energy!(which if there was an oud flavor of 5-hour energy he would buy it and drink it...and so would I )


    I also really liked watching Kersone do his thing, but it sounds like he is more focused on his own line of wares. (good for him though)

    There are many reviewers on YT who do good reviews and try their best to be informative. Among them at Toons, MyMickers, Fragrancebros, genstrevs (very good), MastersofStyle-Alex (Extremely good, may be the best on YT), Fumerie Hilaire (Very informative/in depth reviews), Redolessence (One of the newer reviewers who does a very good presentation). These are just a few. We must remember that these persons are not professionals but they are avid collectors who take time out of their lives to provide us with information that pertains to our beloved hobby. For that, I thank all YT reviewers very much.

    Enjoying our very own Hilaire's vidz at the mo - listed as user "Fumerie Hilaire".

    KP is good.
    I like robes but less and less recently as the vidz become longer and the presentation becomes more OTT.

    He was supposedly picked on by a reviewer by the name of Lupe. His youtube name is TheLupeExperience. People say he is snobby for liking niche only because he looks down on people and reviewers that like designer fragrance. So bottom notes called him out and it escalated very fast and the use of profanity was added in the call out youtube video. Supposedly every review bottom notes was putting up Lupe was dissing him. We never got Lupes side...but BN wasnt the only one to say he was a snob and a jerk. To be honest I've seen a few of Lupes reviews...very boring. All he was doing is reading off a computer screen. Nothing original.

    Those are probably my three as well. Drac and Rob are pretty close as well. The videos are quite and entertaining but I respect that they seems to be the ones "Keeping it real" and not just going niche heavy (even the fragbros seem to be falling down this rabbit hole).

    Dracdoc and Redolessence, for me, are the best two reviewers. Passionate, informative and most importantly they are down to earth people.

    lol @ someone who has zero idea of what transpired, starts his quote with ''supposedly'' then goes off to spew out misinformation after misinformation rotfl BottomNote clearly got mad bCoz I did not agree with him on 2 issues. I never attacked him, I simply asked a question in one instance and told him he was wrong for using foul language in another. Please, be sure of what you say before you say it.

    Oupavoc obviously hasnt seen any of my reviews. Go check out my byKilian L'Ouvre Noire series for originality. Go check out my reviews of Hugo Boss Energize, La Nuit, JOOP, Dior Homme, DHI etc. for a supposed niche-head. Ppl need to stop the B.S. with niche vs. designer, theyr all fragrances, stop buying into marketing B.S. A fragrance smells good or it doesn't, who cares if it's labelled as whatever?

    Katie Puckrick can be funny at times as well as being "crush worthy." I don't remember if she said it in a video review or if I read it on her website, but I was dying laughing when she talked about how as a child she loved smells so much that she would even go around sniffing garbage. I thought I was the only one that liked smells enough, good or bad, to go around sniffing garbage and stanky bathrooms. That's probably too much info - sorry.

    I thought that was probably the case - could obviously tell that you were from US, but the view out of your Window in one of your views, was deffo UK lol

    Tswetcoff is my favorite. His reviews were the best. I wish he would do an update video telling us he is doing well in life. God bless Tim, he is the reason I purchased fragrances. His enthusiasm is what I liked the most. If his reviews were not online, I probably would not have gotten into this, and would be spraying obsession for men every day instead of trying many different and good fragrances.

    Katie Puckrick Smells is another good one. I enjoy her reviews.

    Since you asked for feedback...

    I like shorter videos rather than long ones.

    I like getting the following information, top notes, basenotes, best price and where to buy, and reactions of people to when you wear the fragrance. Some of my favorite reviewers have little clips where they ask someone, do you like this. It's interesting to see reactions.

    I enjoy your videos (i've only watched a few), but when I find a long video I try and click ahead to find where it has the information I want. If I can't find it, I close that review and search for another reviewer.

    If you want to make long videos, cool, can you provide a table of contents at the bottom that says "notes 4:31, prices 19:12, rating 22:40", so we can fast forward to what we want to find?

    Thanks. Your reviews are helpful and I appreciate all the help you provide in helping us pick fragrances that match what we want.

    End of the day, I have a lot of respect for ANYBODY who has the stones to post reviews on YouTube. Don't believe it takes guts? You try it...

    These people are not professionals. They're not being paid, and they're not famous people who are there to be shot at. They're people who love fragrance like everyone here does. They just enjoy expressing that in a different way through a different medium. They're just normal, every day people like everyone here. They all do this in their spare time for the love of the hobby and nothing more. Some of the attacks in this thread are shameful.

    It's all too easy to be a keyboard warrior. I'll listen to people who want to slag off YouTube reviewers when they grow the balls to try it themselves.
