    Thumbs up Fragrances with NO NEGATIVE REVIEWS on Basenotes

    I just posted my scent of the day and noticed that Ambre 114 by Histoire de Parfums has 17 reviews and all are positive! Are there any others that also have no negative (or neutral) reviews? Lets try to keep the selections to scents with say, more than 6 reviews.

    The point of the thread was not to elicit negative reviews...but of course your negative review is welcome! It is quite often that negative reviews are more important than positive ones and I can count several fragrances that I have bought blind based on negative reviews...

    Some people do not bother to write negative review, but Ambre 114 is deserved that honor.

    There is a thread about why most BN reviews are positive a while ago.
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/305...s-are-positive


    I have seen many fragrance in directory without negative review.

    By the way, one review wonder perfume quit buck me. It is no way you know it is really good/bad or just that reviewer opinion on that scent.

    I think there are quite a few scents that have a small number of only positive reviews. E.g. Lapidus pour Lui http://www.basenotes.net/ID26122561.html. This doesn't necessarily mean they are great scents.

    One that I've had my eye on for awhile because of the good reviews on this site is Frank no.2. I was just looking at the reviews on it: 9 positive, 0 neutral, 0 negative. I think a sample is definitely in my near future.

    I am not picky at all. It does in my book given the number of positive reviews. If you can find any scent with more than 50 reviews and zero negative review, please let me know.

    If Leather Oud literally smells like feces and has no negative reviews, then one must question the taste of those who have reviewed it. Are there actually people out there who want to smell like sh*t?

    This is Basenotes after all.

    My take on it is that most of these seem to be scents that aren't that common, so it is mainly people who have read about them and actively sought them out because they sound appealing who post the reviews, which naturally increases the likelihood of a positive review.

    In the case of Leather Oud, most would have been forewarned of the skanky aspect so it would mostly be skank lovers who sought it out.

    With only one negative review (and none in the past) out of total of more than 30, Esencia Loewe is also, in my opinion, "dangerously close" to the top performers and deservedly so.

    Also by Loewe, another classic male fragrance in their lineup seems to have, as of now, absolutely no negative reviews whatsoever. Again, in my opinion, for a good reason.

    Default Re: Fragrances with NO NEGATIVE REVIEWS on Basenotes

    Consulting with my comprehensive spreadsheet of what I own (fellow nerds understand), I believe the following are noteworthy along the lines of the OP/Ambre 114's (2001) stellar review performance numbers:

    Amouage - Homage Attar (2008) -- 30 reviews total (100%) / 26 (87%) positive / 4 (13%) neutral / 0 (0%) negative
    Cacheral - Nemo (1999disc.) -- 34 total / 31 (91%) pos / 2 (6%) neut / 1 (3%) neg
    CdG - Quarzazate (2002) -- 25 / 24 (96%) / 1 (4%) / 0 (0%)
    D&G - By Man (1998disc.) -- 53 / 48 (90%) / 3 (6%) / 2 (4%)
    Eau d'Italie -- Paestum Rose (2006) -- 27 / 25 (93%) / 2 (7%) / 0 (0%)
    Ungaro I (1991disc.) -- 33 / 28 (85%) / 5 (15%) / 0 (0%)
    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes parfum (2009) -- 35 / 31 (89%) / 3 (8%) / 1 (3%)
    Jean Patou - Patou Pour Homme (1980disc.) -- 41 / 36 (88%) / 4 (10%) / 1 (2%)
    MPG - Ambre Precieux (1988) -- 45 / 38 (84%) / 6 (13%) / 1 (2%)
    Montale - Blue Amber -- 38 / 32 (84%) / 5 (13%) / 1 (3%)
    Tiffany for Men (1989) -- 37 / 33 (89%) / 3 (8%) / 1 (3%)

    After getting to know these 11 superstars quite well, 1 gets 5/5 stars, 2 get 4/5, and 8 get 3/5. If I were so motivated to write reviews, I'd probably give 8 positives and 2 negatives or neutrals depending on my mood, citing general overall dissatisfaction after considering scent, price, difficulty to obtain, current availability of more economical and satisfying alternatives, etc. To me there's not much difference between the yellow/neutral and red/negative. Sure, both categories represent degrees of dissatisfaction but with such things so subjective I don't bother splitting hairs.

    As for Ambre 114, it sure sounds like one of the better ambers. Will I ever try it? Don't know. I've got hundreds of bottles as it is. Plenty get 4 and 5 stars. Some are outstanding ambers, yet I don't reach for these ambers that much.

    Hahaha.

    My take out of this thread is not only to identify scents with no negative reviews but also ultimately find exceptional scents. When I read reviews on Basenotes, things I take into considerations are the number of reviews (total reviews, neutral, negative), the reviewers (I kinda know whom I have similar style), years the scent released, price of the scent, etc.

    So when I compare a scent with 10-0-0 and a scent with 49-5-3, which one I would give more credibility? Only speaking for myself, I am more comfortable blind buying the 49-5-3 scent.

    How about a scent with 15-0-0 versus 49-5-3? I would again choose the 49-5-3 to blind buy because I would give more weight to the total number of reviewers (in this case 57 reviewers, 3 negative versus 15 reviewers, 0 negative).

    Therefore a scent with zero negative and low number reviews is less important to me in the above cases.

    I like to take into account of price as one of my criteria because I feel that price is also a contributing factor for thumbs up or down when reviewed. I think reviewers are more forgiving for a cheaper scent compared to a more expensive one, IMO.

    So this whole exercise is nothing absolute but as subjective as the scent itself.

    BTW, if you would like to compare how math is taught in my country, please refer to the ranking of international mathematical olympiad

    Sure, I agree with a lot of what you're saying.
    But, on the other hand, what do you do with very newly released or very hard-to-find scents? Especially the latter tend to get reviewed by people whose knowledge and taste in fragrances are more... hmm... advanced than those of many who might do the 246th review of whatever mainstream thing... I'd say zero negative and low number informed reviews counts at least as much to me as a lot of uninformed opinions, even if very few of them are negative...
    But, of course, you're right, it's a subjective thing. A review is always subjective, and a lot of reviews are a lot of subjectivity. But, subjectivity comes in different qualities...

    Bois des Iles is 52-5-0. Hard to beat.

    Frankly, I don't think that much of the Les Exclusifs version; it's surprisingly thin, which also makes the sweet and medicinal sandalwood/floral accord in the beginning a bit overbearing. That creamy sandalwood can still be found in the far drydown, but in tiny amounts. In my view the current Egoiste is deeper and overall more satisfying sandalwood. But... I would still give it a neutral.

    Another to add to the list of candidates is Hasu-no-Hana by Grossmith (7 positives, no negatives or neutrals). I have had it on my wish list for a long time but it's relatively lofty price has kept me at bay... One of the best things I have ever sniffed for sure, especially on a lady (though I wear it too).
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    The immortal VETIVER de GIVENCHY has dozens of enthusiastic reviews, NO neutral reviews...
    and only one negative review....for the modern reformulation!
    Go for it guys, I'll never get tired to repeat: it's one of the five best perfumes ever created.

    I picked up a mini of this one and yes, it sure is a strange one. One thing I like about the current Directory is that it does not emphasize the percentage rates of positive reviews. I always thought that was strange about the Huddler site and came across as tabloid-esque.

    With regards to Hollywood, it is not for me as an everyday scent, but one that is good to sample and try out at least a couple of times, I would say the bottle is quite nice ( in a tacky kinda way, but I like it).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.
