I am surprised and excited (BUT MOSTLY EXCITED) to see how many people have expressed interest in the Top 20 project! I have gotten a few questions on it, so I wanted to try to answer them all in one post.
What does this project involve?
We will be reviewing the top 20 best-selling mainstream perfumes in the U.S. (as reported by Bois de Jasmin).
What is the point of this project?
I am interested in identifying what makes these perfumes so successful. For this reason, my reviews will include the opinions of my college-age boyfriend and peers. YOURS DO NOT HAVE TO. Do whatever you want in your own reviews!
Can I participate in this project?
Absolutely everyone is invited to participate. Except for Woody Allen. I hate that guy.
What do I have to do?
There are no schedules, no coordination, and no time limit. Review these fragrances in whatever order and at whatever pace you would like. If you have your own perfume blog on which to post your reviews, I will provide links to your posts. If you do not have your own perfume blog, please email me your reviews at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them here for you (and credit them to you, of course!)
What if I do not have a sample of/do not want to review some of the perfumes?
That is completely and totally okay. You absolutely do not have to review all 20 perfumes. Review whichever ones you want! Perfume blogging should be fun!
Why can’t Woody Allen participate?
Because he is a shmuck.
