Basenotes Plus relaunch + Virtual Pizza Party

  • Admin
Hello all,

Keeping this site running costs money, and as such, usually we have a bunch of ads on here to help with costs. Sadly due to various issues, we've not had proper ads running since we relaunched. They will however be back very soon I'm afraid! ;)

If Basenotes is part of your every day life, and you feel you have benefited from it in some way, why not consider becoming a Basenotes Plus member?

Joining Basenotes Plus helps support the site, and gives you additional features such as switching off ads, and more conversation storage space. You can see all of the features below. And it costs a lot less than that bottle of expensive smell juice you've got your eye on!

(If you don't want to become a Basenotes Plus member, or you are but just want to help cover the costs from us not having ads for the last week, we are holding a virtual Pizza Party. Anyone who buys a pizza will recieve a virtual pizza badge.)

Basenotes Plus with Extras​

For the time being we are also offering Basenotes Plus with Extras. This is exactly the same as Basenotes Plus, with these extras:
  • Twice a year you can commission a custom icon for your wardrobe, that will be exclusive to you for 6 months (it needs be of a perfume though!)
  • Each year on BN's birthday I'll send out a gift (could be a BN tote bag, or pin, or something cool)

Anyone buying a pizza at the Pizza Party, whether they contribute $1 or $1,000,000, will recieve a virtual Pizza badge (and my deepest thanks)

How to join Basenotes Plus​

Click on this link here, and choose which option you would like.

Choose Basenotes Plus for the normal one, or Basenotes Plus with Extras if you want custom wardrobe icons.
  • Basenotes Plus is $5 per month, or $50 per year
  • Basenotes Plus with Extras is $10 per month or $100 a year (current BN Plus members can upgrade for $5 per month/$50 per year)
You can choose to pay monthly or yearly, and you can pay by card (via Stripe) or Paypal. All are recurring, but you can cancel any time. If you choose the monthly option for 'with Extras' you will need to wait at least 4 months for your first custom icon.

How to buy Pizza​

paypal and remember to tell me what toppings you want. Pineapple is available, it's not as bad as people make out. :)

Just ordered one too - I haven't had pizza in ages ;)

I must say the new Basenotes Plus features do look mighty appealing. Might have that for dessert at a later time.

I think everyone who has ordered pizzas has them, but please let me know if you are missing one - sometimes paypal doesn't let me know.

Thank you so much to everyone who has participated, it's gone some way to covering the ad-free gap. Pizzas will be discontinued at the end of the month
