    Sad news. I've enjoyed his videos for what seems like a long time now, and what struck me most about him was his infectious good vibes. I'd often half-way hope his wife didn't like something he was ecstatic about; he'd be so excitedly confounded, and he'd desperately try to make the case, often to no avail, but with his enthusiasm intact and undiminished! Hell, he'd even appear excited about things he didn't seem to particularly enjoy haha, just happy to get in there and mix it up I guess.

    Aventus - a killer fragrance which got me sent home early from work.

    Lmao. That brutally honest review was hilarious. Thanks for that, Dan. May you rest in fragrance heaven.

    That's really sad news. He was the only Youtuber I ever watched, and I liked his vibrant personality and enthusiasm for the hobby. My condolences to his family!

    Got a link for that JRWRITER story? Remember that dude. Hilarious I remember he claimed a fire in his house took all of his fragrances. Now that you mention he’s a dirty cop, would surprise me if he committed insurance fraud.

    hi, I worked with Dan for almost 7 years and it was announced that he committed suicide to all of the people at work. I know he had taken a leave of absence a while back for issues. I am not part of the fragrance community but was stunned to hear and know he was a huge player in the fragrance game. I can’t believe it. So many memories and that personality was one of a kind. I was just looking random stuff up thinking of him and seen this, I didn’t think the reason should be left in the dark as it is serious and should be addressed and awareness increased.
    If this is indeed true, my heart goes out to the family he left behind. Unless they’re overtly expressed it’s really hard to know if anyone is entertaining thoughts of suicide.

    RIP Dan, a passionate fraghead for sure, prolific in the YouTube fragrance game.

    I’ll never forget the video when he sent Fragrance Bros. a ‘mystery sample’ of something he claimed was oud but was really doo doo ringer. Bros reaction to sniffing that madness was hilarious.

    He never seemed to care when people had a super negative response to whatever cologne he wore to the office.

    Very sad.

    One of my first reviewers I watched when I started my fragrance journey. Like others mentioned, he was a joy to watch and I appreciated his insight. Rest in Peace and prayers for his family.

    We disagreed on many fragrances but he was a wonderful guy. His videos always made me smile and laugh.

    He adored his family and it really showed in the videos that featured them. My heart breaks for his wife and kids.

    If you can, please donate to his Go fund me, even if it’s only a dollar or 2.

    Wow that's tragic. When I first started my journey a couple of years ago, I would watch his videos because they were catchy and hilarious at the same time. His laugh he always did made me like him even more. I can remember watching his Aventus story about being sent home too. Life is precious. I hate to hear that. RIP MyMickers

    This is sad to hear.

    I remember coming across his videos when I first started seriously getting into fragrances. Despite my different opinion on the scents I loved his reviews of Polo and Azzaro. Just about any fragrances I was interested in he seemed to have a review for. He seemed like a nice and positive guy.

    I was going through a horrible time in my life back in 2011-2012. I reached out to Dan for advice. I wasn't close with him, but why did I do it? I appreciated the positivity he exuded in his YouTube videos. He responded, and that is something I will never forget, that he took time out of his day to respond to some random guy who was asking a fragrance reviewer about advice surrounding depression. What a guy. He was a net asset to the world. I'm going to miss his videos and his patented laugh. I hope his beautiful family will be OK. The holidays are an awful time to lose someone.
