    Surely the point of having as many reviews as possible available is to gather a broad picture of a scent?
    Sometimes, one may have similar tastes to one person and radically different to another.
    But I'm no 'nose', just a long time hobbyist.
    I've definitely blind-bought on the basis of single reviews! But this is after reading for a while and finding that there are posters out there (and some here) who seem to have similar tastes to mine. It's not just about the quality of the review (and I do think we kid ourselves if we pretend that any review is a good review; there's a lot of bad perfume writing out there), but also the particular likes and dislikes of the writer. With some experience, a blind buy is slightly less risky.

    People are free to review fragrances any which way they like. And so they should be. You don't have to take notice.

    It'd be creepy as hell if he were stalking us. Suits him .
