Our moderation team have noticed fragrances seem to be the hardest product to review.
To help combat sub-standard reviews being submitted, we've come up with a mandatory checklist of things to discuss. Fragrance reviews that do not meet these standards will be removed and the points will be deducted.
Two important things to note -
1. You must own the fragrance. A quick whiff at the perfume counter is not a fair trial of the product.
2. If you're reviewing the gift set, you must review all the products of the set. If you don't own the gift set, just the fragrance please submit your review against the fragrance.
For all fragrance reviews, please mention your thoughts on:
Do you own the EDP or the EDT? What size bottle do you own? Is it your signature scent, do you use it daily or for special occasions? How long have you been wearing it? Was it a gift or did you choose it yourself?
What sort of notes does it have? Is it sweet? Spicy? Fresh? Floral? Does it remind you of anything else? Does it last through the day, or do you need to reapply regularly?
Do you like the packaging? Did it influence your purchase?
Is the product worth the price tag?
So there we have it - four areas to focus on and hopefully the end of reviews like - "This smells nice, I really like it" or "Smells great on my mum"!
Anything you think we've missed?
