    Finally, what I do not factor into my evaluation is the price or the value-for-money of a fragrance. Whilst I am aware that most pricing is probably not based in production cost only, but on many other factors including target consumer affluence, marketing concept , advertising cost and diversification strategies of the manufacturer, I try to exclude pricing as it is so irrational anyway in many cases. Only where a very keenly priced scent might show less longevity or projection than usual, I tend to err on the side of leniency.

    Let the fun begin!
    My Review Manifesto:
    When I give the main score of positive, neutral or negative I try to be objective whisky being aware that scents develop quite differently. I sample on my skin. When comparing scents directs I also sample on paper strips. My skin is dry and fragrances' longevity and projection tend to be less than on some oilier skins.
    When I give a numeric score n/5, this is more about by personal liking, but often it goes along with the main score. I personally prefer creative artisanal natural niche scents over mass-produced synthetic industrial-laboratory manufactured mass-designer brand concoctions, but where such a soulless giant produces a great perfume or where the niche product is merely mediocre, I will freely acknowledge that. The nose supersedes ideology. To be continued...
