    Default Basenotes in NYTimes article

    Basenotes is cited in a New York Times article about how to choose a fragrance: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/21/s...fragrance.html

    I looked for, but didn't see, any previous thread about this. If I did overlook it, please forgive me, and mods delete this one.

    Nice exposure for Basenotes!
    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.

    Ah whoops! Very poor proofreading there. Fortunately, the link goes to the correct URL.

    Thank you for sharing/posting. Can personally relate to so much in this article, especially regarding the discovery and/or the revisiting of a favorite fragrances, in part based on prior favorite perfumes.

    Cute article, kinda like 'why kraft singles are not real cheese' essay. I doubt it will have much sway, but I am cynical.

    I think the NY Times article provides a good and easy start for anyone looking to dip their toe into fragrance. The mention of this site is like giving that person a gentle push in the right direction, after maybe heading into a department store, trying things out for the first time, and feeling overwhelmed by the dizzying choices, salespeople aside. True, I agree the article’s style does read kinda cheesy, but we all have to start somewhere. Congratulations to basenotes founder, Grant.
