        I just realized I voted for this but never registered to vote in my states primary. Some priority issues right there.

      • epapsiou | 11th April 2016 16:20

        Your priorities are spot on. Don't fret

        Kiste is in a good position to win one or more prizes.

        I had a lot of difficulty placing my votes this year. So many excellent ones!

        I don't put a lot of stock in the reader awards, but there are a couple of good ones in there.

        Clearly, some hardcore Slumberhouse fans have been working hard behind the scenes...

      • furrypine | 13th April 2016 06:23

        Well, not only the hardcore fans. I never liked anything from Slumberhouse until Kiste, but that one impressed me a lot. It got my vote!

        Surprised that not even a single entry from Frederic Malle

      • epapsiou | 13th April 2016 15:19

        Never found them great except POAL. They are just nicely done but unoriginal I think and I guess I am not alone ;)

        Ah, I've been meaning to check when this was going up - good to see it finally.

        I'll be most interested to see how many insults are thrown at Dior's Sauvage and if Papillon wins anything. There was quite a varied list last year - from totally pathetic to very good.

        I'm surprised no ADG Parfumo in the flanker category...

      • stuigi | 13th April 2016 22:33

        Great to hear again from Mike Perez!

      • cazaubon | 14th April 2016 04:01

        Wow, Andy Tauer is in with some pretty august company for Best Perfumer of the year category! Good to see his name there, I love so many of his scents.

        Really quite interesting to note that one of the factor that perfumes are hotsellers was that their very artistic and unique packaging are really quite catchy. Just like how the scent called Dark Rebel by John Varvatos sells. ;)

        No, not yet. I'll ask the admins when it will be published.
