    Default Who is your favourite current youtube reviewer.

    I know that this thread has been done before my time here, but I'm quite new here snd thought I would see who people are currently liking.

    I really enjoy the following:

    Marc (Robes08) - A legend of reviewing for me. He has done so many reviwes and this has helped me so much.

    Brandon (CutlassupremeSL) Love his style of reviewing. Not so technical, just tells it how it is!

    Cody (Dracdoc) - This guy has the most relaxing and eloquent voice. Love his reviews and the huge amount of effort he puts in.

    Rob (Coachrob619) - Only just discovered Coachrob, but I am an immediate fan. Love the subjects he picks to talk about (Check out his 'Don't belive the hype' Vids). Really good stuff!

    There are some others that I also really like, but these guys are my current faves

    MyMickers is my favourite
    Robes08
    Le Grand Duc (doesn't do many reviews, but I love his accent)

    Kerosene was the best but doesn't do them any more.

    I only follow the succint Katie Puckrick, I haven't the patience to sit through 20-30 minute reviews. Although Mickers is entertaining so I occasionally watch his.

    Cformosa (Cubby). He has fantastic reviews. Straight to the point and very short.
    Honestly, I enjoy all of them.

    I used to like Marc Robes08. Now I don't really like him anymore. He gotten an annoying ego now. And moreover, all his reviews are now over 20 minutes, and he constantly repeats himself, explaining in 15-25 minutes all that could be said in 5 to 10.

    I like Cutlass (as I find his anti-Creed rants hilarious even if I'm a big fan of the house).

    JR Writer is one of my favorites. I really like his personality. But hey, he's from the same town I'm from.

    My favorite reviewer was and always will be Tim Swetcoff. He was the first and the best. He started the fragrance community on youtube practically, and his retirement symbolized the end of the designer era, where now everything is about niche.

    My favorite active reviewer is Dracdoc. He puts more care and effort into the small but significant details than any other reviewer has.

    cutlass - just honest and to the point
    hiro - cool style very entertaining and funny - but still informative.
    dradoc - He puts a lot of care and effort into his reviews. He is a real gentleman too.
    robes08- His depth of knowledge makes him great.
    danforz - Intelligent and eloquent guy. I tend to agree with most of his opinions.

    Cubby and Tim deserve a mention

    There are some awful reviewers on YouTube.

    I just recently stumbled across Fragrancebros while searching out reviews for Aftelier Perfumes. I had been watching a review by smellythoughts who is also good but doesn't have many video reviews (his blog is good and has more reviews). I like robes08 and appreciate hearing his correct pronunciations and, like SirNosebleed, I have a crush on Katie Puckrik.

    While I do generally like his reviews, you are dead-on. He takes far too long to get to the point.

    Used to watch the majority that have been listed, but now I just search a particular fragrance and whoever has done a review on it I watch them. However I am developing a sick obsession for top ten lists. It's sad really.

    Kristo - The guy seems to have no interest in hype. And that's a good thing.
    The Fragrance Bros - Two opinions are better than one. And they're hilarious.
    Katie Puckrik - It's great to get a woman's point of view. And she's got style.

    I don't see how he has an ego. He's still himself. The only difference I've really noticed is that he's started dressing better and he's more confident in his reviews. But I agree on the length, I don't see why a review on a fragrance like CK Euphoria Intense needs to be 20 minutes. The length is getting pretty ridiculous and these days I usually just skip to the end and look at his "rating system" cause otherwise he just repeats himself too much. It was fine when it was 10 minutes long, 15 a bit long but still bearable, but 20 is overboard. Still, it's hard to beat him with his dedication and the sheer size of his library of reviews. If you're the average guy who buys designer, there's at least a 99% chance he's reviewed at least one of the bottles you own in your collection.

    As for my favourites, I really liked kristo though unfortunately he retired, as well as hiro, and Brandon.

    I've noticed now that Robes08 has gotten a lot more comfy and complacent than he was in 2010 since he's now the most popular. But he worked hard and acheived it. He deserves every ounce of that ego. I'm not going to pretend I'm not a vain arrogant person either lol. But I prefer the humility, simplicity and brevity of his 2010 reviews.

    I just felt that when Tim did it, it was innovative. And seeing 90% of the community on Youtube just trying to copy him instead of pushing new territory. Fragrance reviews on youtubes is like gangster rap. When it first came out in the late 80's, it was innovative and made a big impact. But years later, it just looks like a cliche and silly satirization of what it used to be.

    Enjoy all of them, from robes, street scents to the guy who lets his wife smell them in the end, cutlass.., Katie Puckrick (though the reviews can almost be too slick), fragrance bros, dracdoc, etc, etc, all good. I usually just watch the reviews that pop up when looking for comments on a specific scent (and am mainly interested in how they judge longevity and projection then...something that I feel at times gets neglected in reviews here. Always check Darvant's (if I'm not confusing things) reviews as he often mentions them).

    My favorite is Bottom Note for his innovativeness and creativity. But... after the little 'episode' from last night, I'm not sure if he'll ever make another video again.

    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.

    Yeah, Tim had the confidence and charisma because he was innovating. He was doing what he wanted and he set the standard.
    Once everybody else tried to follow it, they came across as rigid and cliche.
