    Haha, yea that's where I got mine. They must've had quite a few for it to still be available, I got mine a good month and a half ago.

    C = the mean vote across all of the fragrances
    This is exactly Bayesian average. So what numbers for C and m are you using that Shalimar Extrait is still on the first place? I have used m = 25 and estimated C to be ~3,5.

    1. Aventus - dedication gives it many high ranking, while detrators are realistic with their ratings to 2 or 3 stars is a recipe for a high number.
    Sauvage will be nearly last. It is cool to hate it.
    Highest rated feminine will be Mitsouko
    I smell.

    Holy cow!

    Well, it turned out I was kind of right about Dior Homme, but someone else said it before me! (Of course.) lol
    I wasn't even close with anything else! I wish I'd thought of mentioning something from Chanel's Les Exclusifs because I know people around these parts really like those!
    Probably someone already mentioned them before me anyway! You know..I can't believe that nothing else from Chanel ever makes the cut here on Basenotes though! I mean..their perfumes that aren't from the Les Exclusifs line! Because statistically, more than one of them falls under the category of "best selling fragrance in the world." Especially, right now, Coco Mademoiselle apparently! But apparently, Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb has made the cut for one of the best selling perfumes in the world for a few years now, I think! And..I think some BNers said they hate that one too! XD Truthfully..I really dislike Flowerbomb (the original one) and almost all of the Chanel Chances too (except one) but still..best selling fragrances! lol
