    It will be so great to have his reviews back!
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I have decided to "reissue" those reviews I still have archived copies of, with edits and corrections as necessary. Even accounting for considerable attrition, the project of retrieving, editing, and uploading the text will probably take me months to complete.

    In the meantime, I will be respectfully bowing out of any further participation on the various boards, as my track record suggests I have difficulty maintaining appropriate demeanor in my public communications.

    My best to the entire Basenotes crew!

    Grateful for your contributions, Way Off Scenter. BN was considerably poorer when you took away your 1000+ reviews. I look forward to your views on some of the more recent fragrance releases.

    Delighted to see you and looking forward to delving into all the reviews again. Please don't completely rule out a return to the boards - you've never had anything to reproach yourself for as far as I'm concerned.

    Vibert was one of 4 reviewers I used to read and trust implicitly when I first found Basenotes

    Hey -- the boards need livening up you could start a thread about fakes or Aventus batches

    Welcome back!

    I've read all Off Scenter's reviews last night (yes, all of them, in one sitting), and I think I'm on the same page on about 75% of his comments. Personal tastes sometimes can surprise us, and what others like we may not, and what they hate may be our guilty pleasures. I found a few of my personal favorites to have neutral or even negative comments from Off Scenter - and that is just fine! We all have different noses - and like snowflakes, there are no two absolutely identical ones out there. Still, it's great to read well written, concise reviews, and I'm looking forward to more of his reviews being re-posted.
