What perfume have you bought recently?
by ExUser | Perfumes & Brands
..."Oud Harmony" by the Saltworks Company. Never knew that I would literally fall in love with an oud scent.Top Note: Oud, AmberHeart Note: Saffron, GeraniumBase: RosewoodI definitely recognise the rosewood in there and it smells insanely good, even my man complimented me on it when he usually despises every single perfume I wear.

...Hello @MOPzerocool and welcome to Parfumo. 🙂 Allow me to give you a hand of help and i will make an attempt to invite to this thread some members from U.S.A to join in case they are interested and with the intention to creat a mini -inner - american community and i would like to see it happen because i understand how difficult is to feel kind of scattered so it is useful to have someone to communicate who lives in the same country as you. So dear all @Fragrance16 @Rachelg @Hammudas @Gourmandgrl @DrDre10 @Embomb  @Oriane @Sopelka  @KathrynA66 and forgive me if i am forgetting someone else (in case some of the mentioned members interact with members i accidentaly forgot please inform them) check this thread in case you are interested in meet other american members. Chreers 😉

Why my perfectly fine photos being rejected
by ExUser | Parfumo Community
...Hello and good evening to all, First i would like to thank @Kurai for his support to the harrasment i had to the german site and i am content to read he that he condemns these bad behaviours of verbal attacks, harassment and cyberbullying at european members of Parfumo site. Furthermore i find it positive that he understands the importance of this incident and I am glad that he is publicly stating that he disagrees with this kind of behaviour that I experienced on the german site's "ticker" from members of the german site . I would also like to state again that it is not a figment of my imagination nor a false fact what I report that I experienced on the german site and i would appreciate if i am not treated like a liar like some members implied above and i don't know what they had in their mind with those kind of conspiracy theories but to my eyes are not reasonable way of thinking or to help the members who got penalties on their account to solve this problem. I hope this is common sense. I have in my possession the e - mails sent by the parfumo group with the name (pseudonym) of the administrator who imposed the penalty on my account and at that time was active and was watching the discussion in the "ticker" but he put those kind of penalties to me and not to the members who harrashed me. This is very strange kind of act of him and to be completely honest shows personal attack and discrimination to me and i am dissapointed to see these are the acts of someone who belongs to Parfumo Team. As i read to the guidliner the role of moderators and administrators of Parfumo Team among other fields is to protect the safety of the site and of his members. If those rules have changed i would like to be informed by an official answer of the side of Parfumo Team for this matter. If the harrasment and attack to members of Parfumo are permitted i would like to know it so to leave from this site.  The administrator who carried out penalty actions on my own account then he sent me again an array of e - mails saying that my profile picture violates the rules. This is not true and while i tried to upload the image he non - stop downloaded it of my profile. I would like an explanation with serious arguments for this decision he took to attack my account profile with these excuses that do not correspond to real facts. I would like to state I received again an e - mail at 09.35 a.m time zone Greece impersonal without the administrator's name this time that simply said the notice that they have taken down my photo again. Until now the image of my profile account is empty as everyone can see. I can show the e- mails it to any moderator who is interested to see it for verification by him. This fact shows blatant targeting of my profile and is unacceptable to me and it has to be investigated by Parfumo Team. Abuse of power is among the priorities of the social issues I am actively fighting in my personal agenda. I do not take such issues lightly and I want everyone to understand that I am a victim of a personal attack like the other members who participate to this thread were and this is not right nor accepted by me personaly and i would appreciated if someone of Parfumo team addressed this serius issue. I would also like to add that I may not speak german but I speak english at a fairly good level and I do not use translation to write my texts in english. I do this fluently without any help and the insults I received were written in english to be understood by me because only I of the other members who participated in discussions in the "ticker" wrote the short texts in english so there no misintrepretation here. It was a full - mouth attack and I am sorry but you all understand the motives behind this choice which I dare say in my eyes look sadistic and with the intention of mocking me and it is not a matter of bad translation or misinterpretation like some other member stated to his message above. I know what I saw and those who mocked me know what they wrote. I am forced to repeat my writings to make it clear to everyone that it is not just a matter of misunderstanding or intrepetation and I also want to point out that in the german "ticker" I have seen expressions of derision in the context of libertarianism used without shame or iiner - thought by some german members and it is strange that it is allowed by the Team of Parfumo. Finally I would like to include and close with this, that I was verbally attacked by a certain member in the german ticker not a few days ago before the next attack to me, because I was writing in english to the "german ticker" and some members who also remember their nicknames took a public stand to condemn the attack that I was attacked for not using the german language and they found this act rude towards me and even expressed their frustration for this action privately to me because they found the act of the member who attacked me unaccepted and rude. I would like to publicly thank the members of the german page for their critical attitude towards the person who harassed me and I would like to emphasise that I appreciate and acknowledge their support for me. I would like this incident to be investigated by the moderatos of european and german page in depth and i am willing to give them help to solve and investigate the attack and the penalties someone put without reasonable explatation to my and to other members profile accounts and take the responsibility for his acts and restore the settings to our accounts. Sincerely, Regards.

Why my perfectly fine photos being rejected
by ExUser | Parfumo Community
...KuraiHi everyone, Let me repeat that I fully agree with @Lempi 's suggestion to accompany a photo rejection with a brief explanation or a reference to which rule was broken. I will keep this in mind while I do moderation myself as well as forward the suggestion.Regarding the individual upload bans, I cannot comment because it is outside of my control/influence. If you feel you are wrongfully treated, I suggest to use the complaint form in this case. That may be a more effective way than the open forum to settle the dispute.The comment by @Nidodelia about being harassed shocks me because such behavior is simply unacceptable and should be reported. The community rules are very clear about this.As a mod I can try to mediate or -in the case of harassment- I can take measures even though my resources are limited. In any case, please feel free to reach out. First of all, thank you @Mitchcraft for your reply, its appreciated someone cares, we all tried this, but without any result or new info, just a reply from @Lilienfeld with references to the guidelines we already know... Which we most definitely did not break! And she even suggested we submitted from both our accounts, we never did this, My wife has her own account, collection and photos, reviews, statements etc.  and so do I, we don't even add each others perfumes to each others collection, let alone any photos or reviews

...It sounds really jolly and i am impressed by the large number of of samples are contained to the set, regurarly the fragnance set is consisted by a smaller number of samples so that was definitely cool!. The discount was a bargain good for you!. 👌🏻 I haven't experienced excessively with the fragnances with this brand the composition of fragnances are unconditional innovative and certainly avant - garde but i share the same thoughts with you about if i would buy a whole bottle of fragnance although i want to test some of brand's creations. Lastly, i asked you to share your opinion about the samples because i wondered if among the samples was the polar fragnance Sécrétions MagnifiquesSécrétions Magnifiques and if you were dare enough to try it. Me theoriticaly i might be ready but the reviews for it's composition hold me back.Warm regards dear @Hammudas 🌹

...Mitchcraft@Kurai Can this get moved In to the feedback and suggestions please so that it gets the proper attention it deserves. Please @DonVanVliet can you address this?Either there is a bug on the site with people unable to upload or if they are being suspended or permanently banned at the least they should be told so they know their situation. If they are indeed banned let them know, if it’s a suspension please tell them so and how long for. If it’s a bug which I really hope it is please let them know so people don’t leave thinking they are being punished when it’s an error in the coding or something. You was so happy not that long ago how the English side of the site is getting lots of activity. Please don’t throw this away with silence. Thank you for this commentIt's definitely not a bug, the post request that's behind the 'submit' button, is returning a response that confirms that for me. (sorry, I'm a nerd).I agree with you and hope they will read and act on this, blocking people who only want to make this site bigger, is not the way to go!

...I am unscented today (a very rare act of me i never remember my self not to put a fragnance on me, even just one drop of a random body mist i wear it) to detoxify the bad energy. Dear @Lempi you know what i mean 😋. Dear @Hammudas it's interesting your choice. I saw some other day you mentioned you was testing the sample set of the subversive brand ELDO. I would like to ask you how you find them? does it worth to test?, i am asking because I have a small decant of Putain des PalacesPutain des Palaces but i haven't tried it yet. Warm regards. 😊

...I hope so too Lempi but let's see.. To chose a beaviour to remain silent or to ignore basic issues like penalties or deletion of reviews, while thinking that it does not matter or it will be forgotten by tommorow it is not the proper way to fix the disturbance. The consequences are visible to us and to the majority of members who perhaps migh be the next ones to experience the same mistreatment and unfair acts we had. We communicate in public the problems we have and confront with our accounts which it was not our fault at all because our will is to be solved and someone hopefully can fix them. We don't write to write i hope it is undestoond by the readers. There is a problem going on here and it would be nice if someone can take act and make things right. I was accused out of nowhere that i don't follow the regulations and my profile image was deleted which doesen't make any sense and to this point i will repeat again that many member have a random image on their profile like a cute kitten, or an owl or of some super famous actor/singer they like or a random object xyz you name it and their image profile is still on as it should be and this make me wonder why specificaly my profile image was deleted as it was to the exact same content like other members use images to upload to their profile accounts. Mine was picked because someone wanted to misuse his power?. Was i the lucky one to be picked today by someone complete stranger who had something else on his mind and wanted react on me?. Well, this is not my problem and to be completely honest i don't need those kind of behaviours in my life needles to say on a net page and i would appreciate it if could be fixed and i and all the members who suffered the frustration could return to my/our cool mood. Thank you in advance.

...Dear @Marcgeurts i am sorry to read that your review was deleted because it was falsely believed it was an AI review. The style of writing AI texts is easy to be detected and your text was translated and this fact is totally different from what the administrators claimed in their justification to you for removing your review which you spent time on writting it and the effort your wife put to translate the text. Acts like yours should be recognised and not punished by extreme acts like deletion. Your public reference to this unpleasant fact is discouraging for people who speak languages ​​other than german like me for instance, I speak english and some other languages also except german and i am greek so for what reason i sould be punished (; ) the same apply for members who are from Spain, Portugal, Ukraine etc. and don't speak german at all but they write in english so what is the problem i am wondering. This is european page and it should be understoond that we write in english because it is easy and convinient to communicate with each other and that's why this page exists to host european members. Personally I was meaning to write some reviews and have saved some to documents on my p.c (to edit and post when I'm done writing them) but now with what I'm hearing I don't know if I want to do it if there is one treatment of non-german members. It sounds like discrimination and it is derogatory to the european members of Parfumo and that's really bad. Furthermore i visited your profile and @MiaMadeleine 's profile also and i was looking at photos you uploaded both and i found them creative and beautiful and also the comments from other members down of your photos are positive. So I see no reason why they denied you no to mention ban you from upload photos of fragnances. I was thinking of upload some photos of a few fragnanes some time in the future but reading what happened to you i don't have the desire to do it thinking of i will have the same unpleasant situation like you all had.  I came to this fragnance site with the hope to find calmness, to chill and to be to a positive enviroment with friendly members and i got penalties and bans instead and these acts are not welcomed nor tolerable by me. Who ever is responsible for this unpleasant situation, he will have to rethink what he wants the Perfumo to be. Otherwise it will be empty.

...Thank you both!I also had a review of mine deleted, but for this I actually received a reason why: "AI generated content".Even though my wife helped me translate it sentence for sentence to translate my words to German (she is German, I am not), I can prove this with screenshots, because she typed it on her phone, and sent it to me, so I could copy and paste it. I was not able to contest it, and I also just left it, because it was just one incident, and I am still able to post reviews.But being blocked from contributing without any explanation, very harsh, and continuing treating all users like this, would be the end of this website. I hope more people will join this topic so that one of the admins or moderators actually read this topic, and takes action to help us, because we do like this website, and want it to thrive instead of it losing it's good content creators.

...Dear @Lempi i was mad and i stiil am and i this is almost embarrasing for the image of german parfumo which the official home - page of Parfumo since it constructed before the european page and it should give the good example to eurpean members. The words that i saw those specific three members wrote on the "ticker" were ugly especially that man who dared to call me a "reptile" made me sick!!. Ughhh..  I was targeted with no reason it was like someone just because.. attacked to me without doing something wrong but i was mistreated like i did which is a big lie. I agree with @MiaMadeleine about the mis or over use their power and act like they can do anything they want without limits which is also wrong. Everyone have to apply the rules. I hope the reasonable team of Parfumo find the blamer who did those acts towards to members and restore the problems and penalties. I still cannot see the ticker.

Why my perfectly fine photos being rejected
by ExUser | Parfumo Community
...Hi dear members,In the last few days extreme strange things have been happening in the accounts of several members I have noticed with great sadness. I read about almost hostile acts such as penalties, restrictions, bans, deletion of photos that members have taken with their personal effort, wasting personal time for the sake of the site that some dear members of the community of the european Parfumo have experienced without any rational approach or competent justification on the part of the Parfumo Team and this does not sound nice at all. The members are an integral part of the community and have come here to support the effort european Parfumo is making to grow in the field of perfume and they do so in good spirit and with sincere feelings. Why do they accept this kind of behaviour without having committed any misconduct or any violation of the rules ?. Why do some people treat members in this cold manner ?. These things do not sound nice at all, especially when they happen in the community of the european Parfumo, whose members make a personal effort to develop like its bigger german sister. My personal belief is that the solution to any kind of misunderstanding is found in an appreciative dialogue and good will and courtesy on both sides. Extreme punitive actions lead nowhere but to misunderstandings and unpleasant incidents.Speaking of unpleasant incidents a few hours ago I experienced a similar one while visiting the german Parfumo site (which I visit for obvious reasons because it is more active and out of curiosity to see what topics the german site hosts) at noon and in a discussion that was going on at that time in the "ticker" about the duration of fragrances three (3) members verbally attacked me because I had a different opinion than theirs about a fragrance. On the occasion of this trivial fact they attacked me by belittling my inability to write in german and almost told me to leave from their page. Also another male member brazenly used a derogatory description of me, calling me a "reptile" and laughed in my face 🤬I only wrote one sentence that their act was rude which is and is objectively unacceptable and reprehensible and my sentence was deleted while the members who were internet bullying and mocking me continued to write undisturbed without any penalty being assigned to their accounts for their actions, and shortly afterwards I was given a penalty of not being able to participate in the "titcker" discussions and then my profile pictures were also deleted. I received an abstract, faceless email stating the justification that I had broken the rules. 🙄I imagine that the members who attacked me in this unacceptable way were abiding by them. This in my eyes looks like discrimination towards me and a targeted attack on me by whoever imposed the penalties on my profile and caused me this unwelcome inconvenience and I would like them to reconsider their decisions and to take back the penalties that put to my account and image profile for no reason and from now on impose penalties on those who violate Parfumo's rules and harass members. This is a useful thing to do. Multiculturalism is part of democracy and democracy is a constitution that allows diversity to express itself freely in any way it wants and without infringing personal rights or apologising for what languages we speak or do not speak, what fragnances we like or do not like and what sex orientation we have as individuals. This is nobody's business and we shouldn't have to apologize for it to anybody. Whatever country we come from and whatever language we speak here on this site shouldn't matter at all. Full stop. It is rude to do so and increases discrimination between members and this act is unacceptable. I hope that those who have not understood this by now will understand this and correct their actions towards members who have been wronged, mocked and given penalties that should not have even been given. If things are different then Parfumo is no different from other similar fragrance sites and will disappoint many members.My two unscented centsRegards

...Thank you, please let us know if you get any feedback/response, we will do the same. I'm a software developer, it's definitely not a glitch or bug.When I look at your profile and perfume photos (beautiful btw), you also don't strike me as a person who doesn't follow the guidelines. This website is only as good as the community who joins/uses it, which makes me understand even less why people who only contribute in a positive way get blocked...

...LempiMarcgeurtsI also got banned for submitting any photos without any explanation, i followed the guidelines when posting photos, and a lot of my photos also get positive feedback from users.@Lempi Is this ban permanent?What really? Wow, this is getting weird now 😳 Thank you so much for informing us about your situation @Marcgeurts. I have no idea if the ban is temporary or permanent, I have had it for about a week now and still can't submit any photos. And no explanation or any message how long it will last. I wouldn't have even known that I am banned if I hadn't noticed it myself because no one told nothing about it. What on earth is going on here?My wife's account (@MiaMadeleine) also got banned from posting photo's (she also has a lot of positive feedback from her photo's, and followed the guidelines, if you look at her photo's, they are just good photos in my opinion).We don't upload each others photos, and both don't have a clue why we are blocked...
