This place is quite empty for the moment, but this should soon change as I archive things from different places and as people (hopefully) join.
Why did I create such community? It's quite simple. I still am very new to BPAL, but wandering on the boards and community I quickly realized how few men there were, and thus how few reviews from a male point of view, if I can say so, can be found. Now, I must say that I'm perfectly okay about women who enjoy wearing masculine scents or oils intended for men, and it's normal that they review them as well. The thing is, while I believe we share much in common, I also think that sometimes we do not perceive "feminine" and "masculine" the same. That often means that if a guy is searching for review on a particular oil, they may want to hear opinions from their fellow male sniffers instead of women's. By the way, I am not saying that men should wear masculine scents and women should wear feminine scents. I welcome male reviews on just any oil and I encourage them to try out whatever they want.
Also, sometimes men may just want a place to gather and share their experiences without being outnumbered by women - and if they want to hear from women, there still are the usual boards/communities available too. That does not mean that women are not welcome, but if any want to join, please pease ladies, don't comment on your preferences when this is about male preferences. I encourage threads on "what does your girlfriend/wife/female friends prefer you wearing" or "what does turn her/them on" and such, but the reviews themselves should remain about men's opinions on said oils; women are free to post in behalf of their husband/partner, although I would be even happier if those could join the community to post themselves.
We may not be many at all, but in any case I will archive the useful stuff and review as much as I can. If the community works fine and I need some help, I will probably ask a more experienced male member to co-administrate with me.
Suggestions are welcome, e-mail me if you have any question.
