    Are you saying you value the strict and regimented adherence to the "rules" of a thread over the free and communal discussion of entirely relevant topics by those passionate about fragrance?

    If the OP has no issue with the way people are interacting on his thread, then I really struggle to see why you have. Lighten up, fella.

    Quite frequently posters ignore what the OP is asking for and just post what they feel like posting. I don't think that's helpful. It doesn't mean I'm depressed about it.

    I find it amusing that people lack such basic reading comprehension skills. Oh, and the OP emphasized to list just one note for each.

    Of course they can do what they want, but I think it's a common courtesy to respect the intent of what the original poster had for the thread they made.

    Oh, here's mine:

    Loved - Leather
    Hated - Aquatic

    He's surely referencing Sécrétions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Orange, which claims to contain those notes.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Splits: Mazzolari, O'driu, Vetiver Royal Bourbon, Trumper Eucris.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.

    Since smelling Wall Street, I've been put off all Marine notes for the time being, that dry down is not nice at all.

    I've also just noticed that each fragrance I've worn over the past 4 days has coriander notes.

    Love - Coriander
    Hate - Marine notes.

I don'y know of any fragrance that just smells of civet. Just an observation.
    You're absolutely right of course, but then we don't have this wonderful thread.

    Default Re: Your most loved and hated note in perfumery currently.

    Tbh I'm having a difficult time choosing either way. There's no one note that sticks out as my most, or least favorite. I don't like the civet in the current Kouros, but love it in Dior's Leather Oud. I thought I didn't like tuberose after smelling Carnal Flower, but then fell in love with Tubereuse Criminelle. Thought I didn't like cumin because of Puredistance M/Opus IV, but then realized that Rose 31 is loaded with it. I feel like any note can smell good when used correctly.

    This. Surely the variance is interesting. That some people cannot have just one. It is just as relevant to like multiples equally, no matter what the OP demanded.

    Reorting. It does sound very painful somehow.

    I specifically asked for your most favorite and least favorite. If that's an hard question to answer, then don't answer it! I don't have an issue with people writing down more than one note that they love, but I'm not interested to know all of the notes you love, I just wanted people to write down the note they loved the most, and they're least favorite. It's as simple as that. But you do what ever you want to do. I'm thankful anyway for all of you that answered to this thread, it's great so see what notes y'all like!
