    Default Azzaro apology

    I recently posted thread here about Azzaro, where I implied that many of the people who said they liked the latest versions of Azzaro were somehow "weak-minded" and were only saying so because they didn't want to go against the general forum love for Azzaro.

    That was out of order and I apologize to the forum in general for saying it. I value the opinions of people in here too much, to alienate them by saying such stupid things when over-tired or just in a bad mood.

    I didn't go back to the thread out of embarrassment, but I realize that dumping such commments then disappearing isn't very nice.

    Anyway, sorry to those I managed to p7$$ off.

    Joe.

    And here I thought Azzaro was launching a new frag, "Azzaro Apology." Darn it: I'd have bought that.

    A very kind and noble gesture!
    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.

    From a personal viewpoint alone: no worries here and no offense taken whatsoever.

    The actual performance of current Azzaro PH does in fact justify a certain criticism, while the scent still a solid classic (even if a classic whose effortlessly good notes could perhaps benefit from/if lasting and projecting more).

    Thanks all,

    I got some stick for my "Azzaro fix" too, What's fascinating about this hobby are the endless possibilities. Anyway, I'm glad I was able to save my bottle, and to find a way to wear this lovely scent. And yes, it was never the smell I had an issue with, only performance.

    Naw, man. Youre fine. Stand up of you to apologize when you feel like you crossed the line. Shows charector. Groupthink is real, though. Pressure of the mob can influence opinions. After I order a sample i wont read about the fragrance again until ive written my review. Sometimes ill remember a phrase or something like that, and i will look at the notes, but ive found i get a clearer picture when i try to do it that way. Immediately after i write it I will go read all the reviews to aee what others thought, gleen different takes.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I wonder if Apology will be an EDP or EDT, but if it's either, we won't really know since they will be lying to us anyways.

    Yup. But it's got to be the third batch of the second formulation.

    sound advice, though I am someone who probably takes too much notice of what others are saying about a certain fragrance and allow myself to be swept along by other people's impressions, especially if they write well. I make the fatal mistake of thinking that if someone describes something poetically or attractively, then I will also like the same fragrances as them. Haha....I'm laughing out loud at how silly that is....but sadly true.

    ps- Who the heck is IFRA anyway ? Who gave them the right to start ordering perfume companies around? Sounds very SOVIET to me. On that note, just remembered that I once actually tested a cologne in France called "Soviet" - Off to check the Directory ,,,i bet it's not there...~!

    it's there!

    It's nice of you to say i was being noble. In fact, I am someone who likes to get on with people and to be liked, like we all do, but sometimes seem to do and say things which resukt in the opposite. Wasn't enough for me to put Azzaro down to a bad experience, I had to "hate" it for "not living up to my expectations".

    Good for you! Fighting the groupthink in fragrance takes a lot of conscious effort. It's a real laboratory for the dynamics of influence. Even with total honesty, there is basically a huge marketplace of shareable perceptions, and every one of them wants to suck the reader in at the first moment of recognition.

    I end up valuing both virginal first impressions and people who read every review they could before making their own.

    Kinda cool that the way you do it helps those who need more original impressions from other people to find one to latch onto.
