    Within this thread is the very best, and very worst of Basenotes. Absolutely hilarious. I've always considered myself to have a foot in both "camps". All this "You suck!" "No, YOU suck!" business is just stupid.

    P.S

    Drunk reviews ARE the future.

    Well, I watched the 'Dior Homme Intense' review above. Since I don't know anything about the fragrance, I have to say, I learned only that it is smooth, about $80, and a 'night-time' fragrance. I still know nothing about the notes. And that fellow has a limited vocabularlary consisting mainly of crude profanities. Kind of dull, IMO.

    In all fairness he did warn you at the beginning the video may contain offensive or overly Canadian language . Lol

    Actually, Jay mentioned this thread in his 1899 vs. Spicebomb video, so perhaps that is sufficient.

    For what it's worth, I, personally, have spent a great deal of time and money on essential oils and numerous perfumes over the last 6 years or so in order to come to some understanding of various notes in perfumery. Many others on this site and elsewhere have done the same. As I previously said, I doubt very much that any of these unprepared 'drunks' have anything to offer. They could make better use of their time and ours if they wanted to come to a deeper, more meaningful understanding and appreciation of fragrance.

    I hate this community, generally speaking, I'm sure there are good people but I'm sick of the snotty,snobby,high horse attitude.

    You win, you're all better then everybody, can't argue with a basenotes elitist, that is a battle that can never be won.


    I can see some entertainment value in posing as a reactionary arrogant fool to take a silly thread into ridiculous territory but surely nobody actually believes that "basenoters" are elitist, cowardly, petty tough guy nazis and drunken Youtube fragrance reviewers are brave vulnerable bearers of the torch of truth.

    Its one guy that is doing all of the drunk reviews and he is having fun. Why does every video have to be deep and meaningful?

    I though you only spread misery in Creed threads?


    Most yt reviews are annoying and pointless to me. Some of them are regular, normal guys. Just like the people on bn. Takes all kinds. Drunk reviews, wet blankets etc....

    People used to love it when LeMdM would start threads high out of his mind didnt they?

    I have no idea what you are talking about.
    No,actually you have no idea what I am talking about.
    For what it's worth, I couldn't care less whether someone reviews a fragrance on Youtube drunk, sober, from a crack den or whilst communicating with nature spirits during an ayahuasca ceremony.
    I don't imagine most people here really give a f*** either.
    My only interest in this thread was how arrogant and hypocritical one particular poster was being, though it seems Qertytop didn't appreciate my pointing out that he was hardly an unbiased observer on the matter

    * By the way, Creed threads ARE misery.

    In my experience most Canadians, especially from his part of Canada, are a rowdy bunch who tend to drink a lot an swear a ton. Maybe this was just part of his process. He probably speaks the same way to his family members and co workers. These videos may just be his way of showing his true self and not acting all prim and proper which is probably so against his grain. I mean he has tattoos, so you know what that means. It may just be the way he was raised, kinda like how Italians always want you to eat. I found the videos to be fun.

    It matters not. To each his own. I was just expressing my view. I won't be checking out the drunk videos. I image some will, so, OP, they probably will go on in the future.

    To be drunk is really relaxing and enjoyable but i'd never wanted to do a fragrance -or any other review while drunk.... and the reviews made while being drunk are not to be taken seriously, just for fun Oh and i respect my wife's will and opinions, but would never let her bully me. Luckily she doesn't even try to be a boss in the house.

    The elitist tag for basenoters is pushing it a fair bit . Sure, there are guys and gals from all walks of life on here. Some members can offer very professional reviews while all the time working pretty unimpressive type jobs. Then there are some ivied folks with nothing more to say than a few words about a fragrance. Fact . Ever notice how Basenotes tends to ignore a reputation system of sorts. So, any accusations of a private little circle of elitists running the show at Basenotes is baseless and absurd.

    The obvious frustration and annoyance expressed at drunken reviewers on Youtube has to be addressed. Just like eager and enthusiastic students , we await that consummate fragrance review like a long awaited lesson. Now, lets consider even great wine tasters will keep their heads clear and coherent by tasting the wine only and avoiding its effects. Anything else and the feedback can very likely miss the mark. Not asking for too much are we ?
