Top 500 Modern Perfumes : The Data ~ by Grant Osborne —

To celebrate its 15th birthday, Basenotes, “the largest fragrance information resource on the internet,” released over the past few weeks an impressive list titled 500 Greatest Modern Perfumes that culminated on Friday. The list presents an immense culling of users’ data to rank the top 500 fragrances of our millennium as evaluated by its huge user base. The website’s founder, Grant Osborne, also offered an insightful breakdown of the data according to launch year, gender, brand (along with types and parent companies), perfumers, flankers, as well as fragrances that have been discontinued or contain “oud” in the name (a testament to the recent flare of the “exotic” ingredient in the fragrance marketplace).
