...Chypre Mousse is a joke. I can't believe they had the audacity to call it a chypre.

...I gave up on Guerlain after the release of Spiritueuse Double Vanille, which I still love.

...Sherapop:I won a bottle and a few samples from them, but I became disenchanted with the shilling-quality of the site, so I recently stopped going there. I'm interested in discussions, not marketing. :roll:The shilling-quality oozes out of the website to such a degree that I am unable to remain there for longer than ten minutes.

...Sherapop:I believe that not all perfume is worthy just in virtue of being perfume. As in all other things susceptible of evaluation, there is the good, but also the bad and the ugly! Imagine a food site where every single food item ever produced (Spam, pork rinds, Twinkies, Cool Whip, ...) was exalted as superlative. Skepticism would swiftly ensue.--- 8)It doesn't bear thinking about. LOL!

I'm interested in discussions, not marketing. :roll:I could have told you this from day one! One member of the Cafleurebon team used to be a regular Basenotes reviewer. However, at least 90% of their reviews were thumbs-up, so I quickly ended up losing respect for them.They are more of a marketing partner to perfumers than a review site, in my opinion. The reviews are really very close to house public relations, which is paid for by the provision of free perfume. Of course, there's nothing wrong with reading quasi-marketing text, so long as one has no delusions about objectivity.--- 8)I agree but they don't go out of their way to make this clear, do they?

...MiaVonTrost:AromiErotici:I won't go there for reviews or go to sites similar to it to get opinions on a scent since they are paid not to write disparaging articles. They are?! :shock: I had no idea. How do you know?Yes, they're in it for the money and have too many invested interests to write even a solitary negative review. Instead, they write it in a neutral and ultra-diplomatic manner.

...Hayven:Has/does anyone read this site? I think it's a generally nice one to learn about new perfumes. They have SO many giveaways. Has anyone won anything from them yet? I have entered a bunch but no luck.Any website or blog that constantly deals in giveaways has an ulterior motive - to increase traffic to their site (thus generating better Google results and possibly ad revenue).Don't think for one moment that it's out of pure benevolence. Where I'm standing, it's strategic and amounts to pure manipulation.
