    Smile After a long time away from Basenotes......

    I've been away from this forum for a long while. I kinda got burnt out from fragrance after making my way to pure oud oils.

    My back account thanked me for being away but now, I'm back with a vengeance.

    A few quick observations after returning to Basenotes if I may: the price of niche scents has absolutely skyrocketed! I was initially struck by the prices of oud oil but then became desensitized to the price and was thankfully able to purchase and enjoy the oils. Upon my return to perfumery, I am surprisingly struck by $250 +++ prices for niche juice and most of this juice in containers of 50ml or less. Again, I am becoming desensitized but still...... Supply and demand I guess. It's just that much harder to get my fix!!!

    Next; places like Parfum1 becoming a niche haven as well as most Creed's and other niche scents being available at discount sites. This was just starting to happen when I left but now it's widespread. I'm very surprised that most of these companies do not, (or maybe they do!!) control their distribution more tightly. Either way, this is something I am grateful for,(no flaming please!) because the addition of almost always available coupons for these sites makes it much easier on the wallet to acquire what I now want.

    Lastly, people with 40,000+ posts on the forum!!! That is fantastic!!! The level of enthusiasm has grown immensely and that's a great thing!

    A huge thanks all of you and I am happy and grateful to be back. :-)

    Welcome back. I too have been away from the forum (and the hobby to a large extent) for a period of several months recently, and am presently enjoying my return!

    Welcome back. I would be interested to know what was popular scents by category (leather, rose, fruity, etc...) when you were active, ideally for both niche and designer? It would be interested to see if taste has evolved.

    Welcome back, evogel, I was wondering where you were hiding! I hope you that your rejuvenated interest leads you to many new things to discover and enjoy but don't leave the ranks of ouddicts either - we are too few already

    I cut out for a few weeks myself. I found that I was spending too much time staring into little plastic screens, not enough time actually out living my life. So now I'm back with a toned-down degree of time spent online. It's great to see the Basenoters again. Missed you guys.

    Welcome back, mr. evogel. BN is still one of the coolest and funnest crowds on the net.

    Welcome back Comrade,

    I was a bit confused by the title at first as I've seen your post over in the oud <3 erz majlis, but I understand now. Sometimes I prefer a spray over a swipe as well. All the best.

    Over the years, I've noticed that few come back - I think it's a bit like having given up smoking permanently.
    Good to see you back.
