    Default Welcome Perfume of Life members


    I know many people were saddened by the closure of the Perfume of Life forums. I remember when it was the Long Lost Perfume Chat Club.



    At once point on the internet, pre-facebook, pre-twitter and everything else -- there was really only three places to talk about perfume : Basenotes, Perfume of Life and MakeUpAlley's fragrance talkboard. For many people these boards were an amazing realisation that there were other people as nuts about them as perfume.

    Now there are many more forums and Facebook groups about perfume, but for many people Perfume of Life was where it began for them.









    I know many people were members of both sites. How about we use this thread as somewhere that POL members can say hello, and let people know if their Basenotes Username is different from their POL username.

    (My username was basenotes! )

    So welcome POL'ers -- if you're not a member of Basenotes you can register here , we don't bite as much as you might think

    If you have any questions, feel free to email me (grant.osborne@basenotes.net) or post in this thread.


    Grant!

    This is a great idea! Thanks Grant.
    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 my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Hello everyone.

    I am the same here as on POL, so easy to spot with the weird Nijinsky Icon and user name.

    Thank you! And hello to my fellow Perfume of Lfe ex-pats! I posted there as "besotted" -- as in besotted with fragrances.

    POL was the first internet forum I'd ever joined of any kind. Soon after, I found and joined Basenotes. And I'm glad I did.

    Nijinsky! Well, live and learn. Donna, I always thought it was St. George slaying the dragon! Took basenotes to straighten me out.

    Thank you, Grant, for the elegant gesture and the endearing original image. My name is the same here although I'd really like to get rid of the underscore. Have been a basenotes member for some time, but posted infrequently due to being a mod with time committed to POL. Now I am posting here more often. Nice to be among dedicated perfumistas.

    I think when you joined spaces weren't allow in usernames! I can remove it if you like. You might get logged out and then have to log in (with a space) let me know if that's okay

    Wow! That would be great, only no space, please, just a capital B like this: "FiveoaksBouquet" would be much appreciated.

    Thank you so much! Just a question: I notice this thread is in the female fragrance discussion forum. Would it be possible to move it to the general perfume discussion forum as there are a number of men who were members of POL and they might notice it better there?

    Welcome ex-POLers! I too posted there now and then under the same name as here.
    Hope you enjoy the site.

    Thank you, Grant, for the warm welcome! I was a long-time POL member and used the name Chypre--which I wish I could retain here (not sure if someone has it or if I messed up an earlier attempt at using it.)

    I am so glad to see so many of my former community members here on Basenotes. They are truly wonderful and knowledgeable.

    Welcome Linkie!

    I just checked the member list and there is someone here called chypre:
    http://www.basenotes.net/members/7355-chypre

    If you think of another name you would prefer than Linkie, I'm sure Grant can change it for you.
    You could also write a signature line that says you used to be know as Chypre on POL, so your old friends recognize you.

    Hello, POL crew and Basenoters! Many thanks to Grant for the warm gesture! I was blackchat on POL where I came out of my shell and wrote a lot, for me anyway. I have been a member of Basenotes mostly lurking for the FAB reviews and directory. Nothing like it! So now I have the best of both worlds!

    Best,
