    Default Guess the highest ranked fragrances on Basenotes / Fun competition

    I'm currently running a script on the new site to process all the rankings and reviews, and it should be finished later today, so lets have a guess and see what the top 30 highest ranked fragrances on Basenotes are?

    But, you've got to guess what they are!

    You are allowed ONE guess each, and not allowed to pick one that someone else has already picked above you. ( You are welcome to edit your choice if you see that someone has already guessed it)

    If you get one of the Top 30 correct, I will send you a random bunch of samples / minis from my samples box*

    * some of these may be very old and/or rubbish!
    * I take no responsibility for anything going missing in the mail!


    Once the script has finished doing it's business, I'll fill in any that have been guessed correctly so far!


    Competition is over

    I'll throw in a vote for Coromandel. If it needs to be more specific, I would go with the original edt.

    I would guess that the top 10 highest ranked would look something like this:

    - Chanel No. 5
    - Creed Aventus
    - Creed Green Irish Tweed
    - Dior Eau Sauvage
    - Dior Fahrenheit
    - Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio
    - Guerlain Shalimar
    - Guerlain Vetiver
    - Ralph Lauren Polo (green)
    - Terre d' Hermes

    I've listed them alphabetically, but without knowing much about what the scents are popular amongst the ladies, it's hard to guess. I'm going to go with a popular classic which is also quite unisex: Guerlain Vetiver.

    Edited after criteria explanation, going with Antaeus.
    ______

    The two I’ve noticed with a decent amount (25+) of reviews that are 100% positive are Agua Lavande and Moschino Pour Homme. I think they each had 33 reviews last time I looked. Does that count as one guess if they’re tied? But if you’re going by star rating and quantity or something else, I’m not sure. Bois de Iles at one point had almost 100 reviews without a single negative, although there were some neutrals.

    What criteria are using to determine “highest rated”? I like a good guessing game!

    Well i was going to say Fahrenheit but i see rum took that with one of 10 guesses (one each, rum!). So in that case, ill say Dior Homme

    edit: i see that i didnt read rum's post correctly. So, back to Fahrenheit for me.

    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.

    Wardrobe ratings, and reviews ratings. If a member has rated a fragrance in their wardrobe, and done a review then the wardrobe rating overrules their review rating.

    Review ratings are normalised with the wardrobe ranking as follows:

    Thumbs Up = 5
    Neutral = 3
    Thumbs Down = 1

    The final rating is weighted depending on how many different people have voted, so 10 people voting a fragrance a 5, isn't as highly rated as 50 people voting a fragrance a 5.

    It's still working though the data at the moment, it's taking its time as the script having to check the reviews to make sure the person hasn't got it in their wardrobe each time. Once I've done this once, it will be a lot quicker as it only needs to work out things that have changed

    Also, a fragrance has to have at least ten different people rate it to be on the list

    Gotcha, thanks for the explanation, Grant!

    In light of the popularity/count weighting, I'm changing my guess to Antaeus which I don't see as a pick yet. Will edit post above and release Agua Lavanda and Moschino to the masses.

    I understand. Based on this, I'm inclined to say it could be Aventus that clinches it, given how popular it was for however many years after it was released. I'm keeping my original post as is though to avoid confusion.

    Still, a great idea for a thread, Grant!

    Italia stole my guess, but gotta say I love this game. And I've wanted a ranking feature like this (based on percentage of positive ratings) on BN for ages.

    I'll guess Chanel Bois des Iles. If I have to choose a formulation too, I'll go with the Parfum.

    What's interesting so far (and it might be because it's working through the perfumes in the order that they were entered in the directory), is that older, discontinued fragrances are doing really well.

    Probably as people have a nostalgic view of them, and so tend to rate them higher? Anyway, this could all change as the script is still going!

    I'll guess Guerlain Terracotta instead. Not a lot of reviews, but over ten and they're all positive.
