Then there are the commenters adding their
pennies penny’s worth of verbiage. I would say two cents‘ worth … <see earlier edit regarding ellipses> if, in fact, it was! Now, I do appreciate freedom of speech ,. hHowever, I’m rethinking this after reading comments that lead consumers down a false path of misinformation.
On one hand, I do agree that there has been an absence of quality. <In what? Abrupt transition.> I could write a chapter

For those who are reading and are blogger
’s, please don’t misunderstand me. … I think what you bring to this industry can be very good. I’m just exhausted with the amount number of critiques and pontifications that mislead the consumer. Personally, I think many need to learn how to smell correctly and learn to understand what youthey smell without looking at the wonderful fragrance pyramids .

would hate when an editor of a magazine would hated it when a magazine editor requested a fragrance pyramid.
I often told them to go to Egypt, where they can see all the pyramids they want.
